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!


  1. i love this on you! i never wear red either for the same reasons!

  2. This looks lovely on you! Really suits your blue eyes x

  3. Love the red lip with simple make-up look for the day, may have to try! Looking gorgeous Kelly xx

  4. It is a lovely shade and really suits you! Red can be so hard to wear xx

  5. you look gorgeous Kelly, the red really compliments you xx

  6. This is such a gorgeous colour! It's a really classic, subtle shade that's not too in-your-face red.

    I'm always hesitant about wearing red lipstick as well, especially during the day, because I'm so pale so I think it'll either make me look washed out or completely vamped up. This looks like it'd suit pale skin as well as tanned skin though!

  7. Wow your lip colour is gorgeous! Your hair looks really nice too. Have u tried the red eyeko lip pencil? It's a lovely red and applies really easily too Xxx

  8. lovely colour! Found your blog whilst googling for this lipgloss! x
