So a few days I posted about my love for the only red lip product that I have ever liked. I've attempted to wear red lips before and always wiped it off before leaving the house. I just always thought it looked over the top, and just didn't suit me at all.
This week when I was given the Illamasqua Intense Lip Gloss in Succubus, I really didn't think I would like it. How wrong can one person be. This lip gloss has been released with the Throb Collection, and I can hand on heart say that this is the first red lip product that I have really really loved. I'm so glad I was given this because honestly, I wouldn't have bought it otherwise. I will most definitely be repurchasing it too, I love it that much.
The gloss itself is also a gorgeous formulation, not sticky at all, easy to work with, and its definitely buildable. You can either apply a small amount and dab it into your lips with your fingers, or really go for it to create that rich, glossy, intense look.
I do think it looks better because I'm (fake) tanned, and I'm not sure how much I could rock this if I went back to my pale ways. I kept my make up pretty simple, and didn't wear any liquid liner as I did wear the red lips out during the day. In an evening though I'd definitely be adding a winged eyeliner to mix and channel my inner Hollywood Starlet!
