Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Succubus £14.00 (was sent as a competition prize)

Firstly - I apologise for no picture with the product on said lips. I'm still getting used to the macro setting on my new camera and it got to the point where I wanted to throw it across the room... So I gave up and told myself I should be able to describe it to you all instead... So here I go!

This is my first Illamasqua product and if I'm honest, I have a bit of a mixed review. The colour is very pigmented and yet subtle when mixed with the gloss. It lasts a good couple of hours as well so a very dependable product.

However, I'm not a huge fan of tubey lip glosses. In fact, the only lip glosses I really like are the ones with the wand... if them really. I guess me and glosses have a bit of a meh relationship. Anywho, I found this really hard to apply - I think it would be better served with a brush to apply and it's quite thick going on as well which adds to the difficulty. On the plus side though it's really not that sticky so yay!

Overall, I'm not won over by this product unfortuantely. It hasn't convinced me to join the ranks of my fellow bloggers who love Illamasqua - but hey, maybe another product of theirs if you could suggest one?

What Illamasqua products would you suggest to change my mind?
