Illamasqua Sheer Lip Gloss Opulent Review & Swatches


Illamasqua Lip Gloss

Illamasqua is possibly one of the most luxurious brands I have used till date. I have two products, and I love both to death. This is the lip gloss which I have raved about before. It is Illamasqua sheer lip gloss in the shade Opulent.

My experience with Illamasqua Sheer Lip Gloss Opulent:-


The packaging is classy, with a clear hard tube with a black top with the words Illamasqua written lengthwise on the top. It is really easy to carry and I have been using this on and off quite a lot. Once opened you would find a brush applicator. Mine spreads a bit so it is just that much difficult to apply.

When I first saw the color in the package I was like… how do I make this work? Strangely enough I did make this work.

The color has been one of those shades which have been quoted as “rainbow beige” and I tend to agree with them. It is a shade of nude beige bordering on pink, and it has little gold, pink and purple glitters in them. The genius is in making this lip gloss really sheer that helps me in wearing it easily. I have generally worn this with a light hand and it is so easy to use! However, the beauty of this particular product lie with the fact that it is intensely wearable and the color just make my lips look super sexy.

The lip gloss actually lasts a fairly long time on my lips, about 5-6 hours if I do not eat. The color settles down within an hour or so of application, and the glitters settle nicely. I love wearing this in the evening with a smoked out pair of eyes and some dark makeup. So wearable! And yes, though I have found the brush to be not too great, it does do a nice job and I have been complimented on the color many times.
