Illamasqua Belladonna Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua’s Intense Lipgloss formula is one of my favorites, especially when you’re hunting for an opaque gloss. It delivers shine but full color coverage without feathering or bleeding. I typically get really good wear, too; when I sported Belladonna on its own, it wore for a full six hours and lasted until eight hours where I felt I needed to reapply. The glossiness fades quicker (mostly gone by the third hour), but the color lingers for much longer. It’s non-sticky, too, and I couldn’t detect any scent or taste.

CoverGirl Burn is more vibrant and intense. MAC Extended Play is deeper and less pink. MAC Digna is deeper and sheerer. MAC New York Apple is a bit darker and doesn’t have gold shimmer (ruby instead).
