The Summer Season: Illamasqua Fume Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss Fume ($20.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a juicy, glossy cherry red.  It makes your lips look like perfectly ripened, candy-apple red or luscious, summer-ripened cherries.  Either way, the color and finish is pretty sexy.  It’s bright, but it really is more wearable than you’d think, because it has that gloss texture.  It’s very rich and opaque, and it wears about three to four hours and leaves a residual, persisting stain for a few more.

^_^ I just found a gift for my best friends birthday coming up!! *sings*

She loves wearable reds and very much obsessed with the CG lip stains and glosses in general =)

This would be PERFECT! All hail Christine! lol =p Really though, tyvm! ^_^

Like others have mentioned, this would look great during the holiday season for those who want to try a red lip. Christine, I don’t think there’s a color you can’t pull off well! = )

Beautiful !
I think most if not all of your Intense lipglosses are so pigmented and glossy ! It makes me wanna get them all 🙂

No….. I am a firm lover of a creamy red lip. Never a gloss that looks as if it would drip off of your lips. The colour is nice, but I don’t like the gloss part of it. I have tried red glosses before and they always turn messy on me.

Gorgeous shade, looks great on you. I think these are the first beauty products i’ve noticed that I don’t mind buying all shades of, even if a few are really similar or if I already own something similar. Damn Illamasqua and thier trendy, to die-for makeup.

Are you sure Illamasqua didn’t have you in mind for these gorgeous summer colors? They were made for you. Not everyone can pull off such bright, luscious colors. I am totally envious;)

Can this color also pass for a winter/fall color? I know the colors tend to be more bold, but I tend to lean toward more lighter colors. I do love this color on you. I’m an NC35 gal and I hope it’ll good on my lips as well 🙂
