Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss in Lily-Rose - Review

Hello lovelies!!!

I was lucky enough to be able to buy a few things from Illamasqua's sale, one of those things was the lovely sheer lip gloss in the shade Lily-Rose. (haul is here)
First of all the name, how cute and lovely is the name Lily-Rose? 

  Why I brought a lip gloss I will never know, I hate lip glosses! but I'm so glad that I did!
Illamasqua Sheer Lip gloss in the shade Lily-Rose is described as a warm raspberry on their website which I have to disagree with slightly, its a very bright pink, it is warm but bright at the same time (if that's even possible) and stands out quite a bit, you can tell its bright just by looking at it on the applicator. Either way its a very beautiful colour and one that I really enjoy wearing.
The Sheer Lip gloss feels so smooth and moisturising on the lips and goes on really nicely and is sheer, but not as sheer as I was expecting it to be. At first all the bristles of the brush were suck together into to a hard point which made it very hard to apply evenly, but with use the bristles separated and it now apply's evenly and without a problem.

The lasting power is pretty incredible for a lip gloss, the glossy feel and look lasts around 2 hours without eating and drinking and after its worn off it leaves a lovely stain behind on the lips which lasts about 2-3 hours and doesn't feel drying at all.
The only thing that could be a bit off putting is the smell and taste, its a really sweet and can be a quite overpowering flavour, this doesn't bother me but if you are not one for strong scents and flavours then you might not like it.

It actually looks a lot bright in person than it does on the pictures.

Overall I really love Illamasquas sheer lip gloss and wear it quite often, if I cant find a good dupe when it finishes I would happily pay full price for it instead of the £5 I paid when it was in the sale.

You get 7ml in the tube for £14.50 and you can get it from the Illamasqua website.

Have you tried this before?
