Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost comes from their new fall/winter 2012 collection called Generation. Generation is all about celebrating beauty of all ages, colors and sexes.
Now I have to say, when I opened this box and saw Boost, it was pretty much love at first sight. The shade is this gorgeous vivid violet with blue undertones. I just was hoping and hoping it wouldn’t be sheer…
Sheer it is not! And the color is everything I had hoped it would be. It’s really strong and you can definitely see the blue shimmer. On my lips it looks like a pink/violet with blue shimmer. It’s thick, yet not sticky at all. Very glossy, moisturizing and comfortable on the lips. It has a slight fruity scent, which is nice. I really, really love this shade. I can tell this will be one that I will be SCRAPING the very last remnants of.
Pricing: $22.00 for 0.2 oz. I know, it’s not cheap but for this shade I think it’s worth it!
What do you think about Boost? Is this the kind of color you would wear?
Note: Illamasqua is cruelty free.
