Illamasqua Once Collection: Exquisite Lipgloss

So I thought it was about time I shared a lipgloss which has been gracing my lips fairly frequently in the last couple of weeks. Illamasqua have launched a gorgeous range called 'Once' for Autumn which includes this gloss called Exquistie which slots in perfectly with the faded romance theme of this collection. This is a sheer lipgloss and is described as a 'pink oyster' shade which has a strong milky undertone. I have no idea how they have done it but al though this is a sheer  and kind of opaque it still has great colour pay off and the fine glitter in it really gives your natural lips a real pop. This gloss can be worn alone like above or layered, I have worn it with Mac's Milan Mode and they make a gorgeous pair. 

When initially applied this gloss is very thick but not sticky and it has a very strong fruity smell as soon as you open the lipgloss but disappears fairly quickly. The nib of the lipgloss is very small with short bristles which I'm not used to however it does make applying in a rush very quick and easy.

This is available at the moment for £16, and if you are a nude lip lover then one more lip product won't hurt! Any of you got a favourite nude lipgloss/lipstick at the moment?
