The Summer Season: Illamasqua Follow Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua Follow Intense Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a fluorescent red-pink. It’s ridiculously bright–totally retina burning, actually! It is completely opaque and ultra glossy. It’s almost like a really, really amped up watermelon pink… except red.Β  Sorry, I’m so blinded, I’m almost at a loss as to what to say about this!Β  Like other Intense Lipglosses, Follow is richly pigmented and looks opaque when applied to lips.Β  They’re scent- and taste-free, too, and wear well–about four to six hours in total, but the glossiness does fade around hour two.

Am I really the first commenter on this?? Yay! πŸ™‚ I LOVE this color on you Christine! It’s gorgeous! I would totally wear that lipgloss. πŸ™‚

This is amazing! im excited because Illamasqua today has launched a counter in Sydney! i think i will be getting a intense lipgloss!

That is such an intense color for a lipgloss, I love it! ‘Follow Intense’ is a great chosen name for it.. That’s something you don’t see very often.
Makes me think of Snow white somehow πŸ˜›

Yeowch, that’s bright! I’m heading off to Illamasqua today to pick up a couple of things, I may not be able to resist getting one of these.

I absolutely LOVE Illamasqua Intense Lipglosses! I’m wearing Besotted right now, do you have that one Christine? Follow is gorgeous on you x

I… have no idea why I love this but I do. Ok, I do know, I have such a thing for vinyl lips, BRIGHT color and it looks really comfortable to wear!

Im soo curious about what you mean by the glossiness fades…like, what it looks like. Do you think, next time you swatch one of these, you could take a picture of it a few hours later? Thanks

Holy mother of god I think you just temporarily burned out my retinas O.o

(But it’s okay. If that gorgeous lipcolour is the last thing I see for the next while… well, I wouldn’t be too upset!)

she is so pretty im so jealous i love how that bright color makes her look even more prettier lol i know im saying it alot but she is πŸ™‚
