Illamasqua - Succubus , Intense Lipgloss Review

Wednesday, 25 April 2012



I love bright red lips! I have dark hair and pale skin and red just brings a nice pop of colour! Although I do save it for nights out only.

I have to admit, this is my first Illamasqua product, and when I seen this in the sale on Asos.com I couldn't resist! You can never go wrong with a red lip gloss.

Well I say gloss...it's not your usual sheer lip gloss, true to name it is a highly pigmented Intense Lipgloss! At first I swatched this on my hand, and I couldn't get it off again!! Which was a good sign, you don't want statement lips fading off before you ever get to your venue!

It has a light fruity smells that reminds me of sweets, sadly it doesn't taste like sweets (not that I ate some!). The colour is a bright red with slight blue undertones, a lovely blood red.


I have to admit, when I swatched this on my hand I found it really sticky which I was a little disappointed by, but actually after I applied it to my lips it wasn't half as bad. Although you're hair will still stick to your lips in the wind! lol

Sadly it's not available in the Asos sale anymore (the have other shades/products though), but it is directly from there website here.

All in all, I like it and happy to add it to my new obsessive lipgloss collection. Would love to try more products thought.

What's your favourite Illamsaqua product?

    1. Thank you :) xx I picked this up for around £8 of asos. Makes a big difference from £13 or so esp when you just want to try something.

    1. Sometimes make up reps are the worst. I had a "makeover" at inglot and I looked like a ghost! I was embarrassed to leave the shop after! I really want to try their foundation, but I'll wait till i can go to a store and see it in person. Their liquid gold looks really good too :)
