The Summer Season: Illamasqua Temper Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua Temper Intense Lipgloss ($19.00) is a fiery orange red with a creamy, glossy finish.  It’s a wickedly bright–but neon–orange-red.  I can see this working really well with deeper skin tones and warmer complexions in particular.  I love the pigmentation of this lipgloss, because it makes no bones about what you’re wearing.  Intense Lipgloss isn’t for the fainthearted!  It’s long-wearing with the gloss wearing off after about an hour and a half, but the color itself clinging on for three to four hours and leaving behind a decent stain that wears on for another hour or two.  It’s scent- and taste-free, too, for those with more sensitive senses.

Is this the right orange lipgloss for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

    looks great on you:]
    not quite the right orange for me though
    i like more muted and neutral oranges
    i would probably wear it if all my other makeup was very neutral and i was going somewhere summery and where i wanted to get some attention:]

  2. Michelle

    Christine how do you apply your glosses so perfectly? Do you use a brush?

    I always notice that u say the glossy shine wears off but not the color. I was wondering if u could maybe post a couple of pictures over a couple of hours time so i can get a full understanding of what u mean. Thanks

    • It means the glossy part – how shiny it is – doesn’t last as long as the color itself does. Instead of looking glossy, it looks a little flatter, more like a satiny color instead :)

    my retinas are ringing it’s so bright ! Lovely, brave shade of red though ! Illamasqua stays true to itself ! Bright as ever !!

    Holy neon, Batman!
    I love this shade! 😀

    Oh no, this is one color I would NEVER wear! Too bright for me!

  10. I honestly can’t wait to go to Sephora and fork over some $$ for these!

  11. Madi

    is there much difference between temper and mistress?

  12. Holy cow. That’s like being punched by someone’s lips. Hot!

    The intensity of these glosses look amazing! Though it’s a shame the brand isn’t sold in Canadian Sephora stores or else I’d buy them in a heartbeat.

    Beautiful on you, but red/orange glosses not my my thing. I like my brights to be matt.

    Love it!! I have morange from MAC I love to wear it in the place or red lipstick sometimes. It is so hard to find a decent orange lipgloss that actually comes out orange. Very nice colour on you : )

    I would…if I lived in a metropolis city. Sadly, I live in like a hillbilly state and I’m not exactly fond of being gawked at. Out of town trips, absolutely! The color is so exacting and bold—I love it!

  17. it’s very January Jones :)

  18. I have this, and absolutely adore it- unfortunately my hair is now the exact colour of Temper, and I can’t really wear both :(

    The only think is that this absolutely has a scent, quite a distinctive orange sorbet kind of thing. I’m not sure if yours doesn’t for some reason? Maybe this is just me?
