Review of Illamasqua Intense in Fierce by Crystalynn83
I am loving this gloss. When I first purchased it, it sat in my stash for a couple months until I figured out HOW to use it. I am sure most people that are open minded enough to buy a purple gloss, but then say they don't like this are probably not using it correctly. If you slap a thick layer on, you're going to have GRAPE purple lips & probably look like you just drowned. However, used in conjunction with a pink or red lipstick or gloss, it's beautiful. It's a medium opaque grape color with no shimmer. I like to put a good layer of this all over my lips and dab a hot pink gloss in the middle. Very pretty effect & I've gotten lots of compliments. As for packaging, as sanitary as possible with the plastic tip, it's fine with me. Price is a little steep at $20 but it's a product you use rather sparingly so it'll last a while. And it has great staying power, lasts 3-4 hours on me. Not to mention it's kinda hard to find this shade in any other brand. I'm thinking maybe an OCC lip tar would be as close as you can get color wise. Overall, I would purchse again. Love it.
