The Summer Season: Illamasqua Indulge Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua Indulge Intense Lipgloss ($19.00) is a brightened, vibrant shade of neon pink with a liquid patent, glossy shine and no noticeable shimmer. (There is flat, red flecks in the formula, but they’re not really visible when worn.)

I was so impressed with Frenzy, I just had to try a few more of Illamasqua’s Intense Lipglosses (I will also be featuring Fierce, Petulant, and Move soon!). They totally scream, “TEMPTALIA!” since they’re glossy but wickedly pigmented. Indulge didn’t disappoint me either–it’s bright, richly pigmented, and applies beautifully. Even better is that these glosses last a good three to four hours on me before a little fading occurs, which is quite good for a lipgloss! These feel like a cross between lipstick and lipgloss, but they’re definitely more on the lipgloss side of the equation.

Leave it: too pink for me.
I know many girls love pink but I don’t.
The only pink things i have are 2 blushes and Funtabulous dazzleglass and Big Bow lipstick.
But this one would be too much for me. Though it looks gorgeous on you Christine !

Damn you Illamasqua! Damn you again! I tried ordering Illamasqua products from Sephora, but they ask you to remove the products from the shopping basket since they are “Canada Restricted”. —> 🙁

🙁

You could always try through illamasqua.com – I know they ship internationally. No clue whether it’s more expensive, the same, etc. with exchange rates!

How on earth do you put your lipgloss on so straight? Mine runs the second I apply it. Same with lipstick and I am using a brush.

Not sure about this color though. :-S Not a fan of pinks..

chirstine how about a video tutorial on how to put the perfect lipgloss or lipstick just like u lol b/c no matter what lipcolor u wear u make it look so beautiful

That looks gorgeous on you, Christine! But it’s not really my type. And I have a darker skin tone, so that will prolly look funky on me.. 😀

funny that you posted this, because the other day i went to sephora to get frenzy and mufe 203 lipstick after i saw it on here, and instead i got the lipstick and indulge together….it makes the most gorgeous neon pink and it suited my complexion better than the other combo, which was redder. you should try it!

Gorgeous! I just ordered it thanks to you =) I can’t believe I didn’t know about this bad boy! Thank you so much! Their lipsticks are too drying for me but I Love their blushes! Oh & ever since you posted the Elizabeth Arden Flamingo, I’ve been dying to get my hands on it! When do you think it’ll be available again? Thanks hun =)

I love how pigmented these are! I can’t wait to try them. I don’t think I’ll be going for the bright pinks but the other colours on the website look gorgeous!

Christine, is there a similar mac lipstick of this? or any brand? i love the color but i just don’t like lipgloss. Is this similar to impassioned?

WOW…I really love this lipgloss…I’m not sure how good it would look on me in particular but it is so beautiful…I’ve been wanting to try the Illamasqua lip-glosses since I heard they were crazy pigmented…thanks Christine!
