The intensity of application is in your hands! Typically, creams blend out easily and require very little product if you want just a tint of color. Illamasqua's formula is lovely, because they provide a dewy finish that's natural and luminous but never greasy or oily. It also works well on...

Giorgio Armani Black (13) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a really deep, dark black that is subtly infused with navy blue micro-shimmer. In the pot, it looks black as midnight, but when swatched, the shimmer is just barely visible. It is a blue-based black, and...

Giorgio Armani Khaki Pulse (6) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as neither powder nor cream but a hybrid that creates a "smooth, lasting color film" that can be applied wet or dry. Giorgio Armani explains, "Each shade is intensified with a second pigment for...

Giorgio Armani Champagne (8) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a darkened pink-tinged champagne with a bright, metallic sheen. This is the first Eyes to Kill Intense shade that I felt worked better wet than dry, in terms of color pay off, but I can see many falling in...

Brilliant Lipgloss is supposed to be a hydrating, long-lasting formula that finishes with brilliant shine. It is also has botanical microspheres to plump lips without stinging. It comes with a brush-type applicator, and one pull provides enough product for a single application. I do not...

Illamasqua Radium Nail Varnish my thoughts on the formula: Illamasqua's formula is richly pigmented, smooth, and easy to apply. It's a thicker formula but not gloppy. I did notice very slight brush strokes in the finish under really bright light. Radium is almost opaque in one coat, though...

I did find it more moisturizing than the average lipgloss. The real disappointing part of this gloss is how little each tube contains. At $32, I think these invite comparison to Chanel's Glossimers (which are $28.50), but Chantecaille's gloss comes with only 0.10 oz. of product, whereas...

Hourglass Imagine Extreme Sheen Lipgloss Hourglass Imagine Extreme Sheen Lipgloss ($28.00 for 0.24 oz.) is described as a "peach champagne shimmer." It's a milky peach gloss with lots of peach and peach-gold shimmer. It doesn't have a ton of color, but it does lighten and add some warmth...

Illamasqua Hermetic is more metallic, more opaque, and a little browner. This applies much better than Plum Gold, which is a color I totally love, but it doesn't apply as evenly. For such a dark gloss that's not opaque, it really does apply rather evenly. It has semi-opaque color–there's...
