Intense Lipglosses are amazing for the gloss addict who struggles with the multitude of sheer glosses on the market. They’re so rich and pigmented, so they’re great worn alone for color, but you don’t have to worry about layering a gloss on top to achieve the glossy finish. They’re scent-and taste-free, which makes them good for those with more sensitive senses, too! Oh, and they’re non-sticky, too. Not super thick but not featherweight either–it’s smooth, thin enough to move around, but not so thin it slips around.
The packaging is so-so — it’s a squeeze tube with a slanted tip for application. I think a wand applicator may have been more appropriate, just because you could really get some precision with it, since this isn’t a product you can be loose with! It’s slim, though, which makes it convenient to stash in purses or makeup bags. Each tube contains plenty of product, and you really don’t need much to get full color-coverage, either, which is nice.
I’ve found that I get quite a bit of wear out of these, too. The glossiness does fade after two hours or so, but the color itself works hard for four to six hours, sometimes longer.
