My Experience with Illamasqua's Sheer and Intense Lipglosses (Enchant and Frenzy)

I really, really like Illamasqua's products. I started my love affair with their cream blushes, then I ventured into the lipstick territory and now I just can't get enough of their lip glosses. I picked up two shades over the summer, Illamasqua's Sheer Lipgloss in Enchant and Illamasqua's Intense Lipgloss in Frenzy. Both have a similar formula with the most gorgeous sweet scent (it reminds me of gummy-sweets) but the sheer lipglosses are slightly thinner and much, much less opaque. Illamasqua's Intense Lipglosses are so opaque that they remind me of liquid lipsticks and the colour that you see in the tube really will be the colour you get on your lips! I've included lip swatches of both shades below (Enchant, followed by Frenzy).

In my photos you can really see that Enchant is very sheer and only offers a slight tint of colour, whereas Frenzy is much more opaque. By offering both of these kinds of lip glosses Illamasqua allows make-up lovers to pick exactly the type of product that they might want. If you want something very easy to wear then I'd opt for the sheer lip glosses but if you want a super glossy, liquid lipstick look then I'd definitely recommend the opaque glosses. I personally like them both, I find that they're pretty long lasting considering that they aren't sticky and they feel very comfortable to wear. There's also a pretty impressive shade range, I've already sussed out the next shades I'd like to try - Intimacy, a nude pink brown and Belladonna, a deep pink.

Have you tried any of Illamasqua's Lipglosses? Which do you think you would prefer, the sheer or intense lipglosses?
