Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Galactic – Review

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 4 - 2009

When I got up this morning, I was determined to brave this adventurous (for me) lipgloss, so here we go!

You can probably tell that this is a sheer application.  It’s applied over the top of Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss in Lily-Rose.

It’s consistency is sticky, but not as sticky as MAC’s lipglasses.  Longevity is good, it hasn’t faded much at all throughout the day so far.

Galactic is a really lovely item to have in your kit, glamour in a tube!

    GORGEOUS! I love it… i want to smear it all over my lips and eyes the second i get mine!

    Gosh, that looks a lot easier to wear than I thought it would from your previous post. Very pretty indeed!

  6. Thanks J! I originally got the lilacy sheer one, but TallulahB was happy to swap me for this, and I’m so glad she did… it’s not easy getting it sheer enough though. I’m gonna go full out robot lips just to scare the baby tomorrow. I’ve said it before but I had so much fun chatting to you xx

    @nicola – why thank you very much! x

    @TBE – thank you, I’m really loving these lipglosses!

    @Tali… get a couple, smear them all over head to toe and be done with it. Self expression and all that!

    @Luce – It is! And like I said, I think it could be used for all manner of highlighty type things! Really versatile.

  7. That looks very pretty and also … fashion forward

    LOVE
