My Throbbing Heart

Valentines day is approaching, and Illamasqua has released small collection to celebrate it!

Cult British beauty brand Illamasqua invites you to step into a world where your heart will race and your pulse quicken. Inspired by your Alter Ego’s inner depths of desire, and in celebration of Saint Valentine, the new Throb Collection consists of three new Nail Varnish shades, an Intense Lipgloss and a blood red Lipstick . . 

Nail Varnish
Throb is a powerful red nail varnish, the colour of blood spilled by desperate, rejected lovers.
Load is a rich, cream coating for the nails
Scorn is a midnight matt finish deep statement of obsession.

Intense Lipgloss
Come out of the shadows with Illamasqua’s high-shine, colour-rich intense lipgloss. Sure to be a cult classic, awaken your mouth’s erotic sensuality with the seductive red of the new Succubus.

Let your lips speak volumes. Indulge in Illamasqua’s colour-intense Lipstick with a highly pigmented formula. Assume the role of a femme fatale with Sangers, Illamasqua’s new blood red lipstick.

The collection isn't big, but I ADORE the promopics!
Illamasqua always knows how to inspire!

I got so inspired of the pics, that I wanted to recreate the look.
I added some of my own to the look (lips, heart shape etc), and I could have done it better, but... Well, no can do ;D


I used so many different products I'm not gonna even try to list them. :P

But on the lips there is Illamasqua Sangers lipstick (with Perform intense lipgloss):

I already had one red lipstick from Illamasqua (Faust), and it's a little bit darker red, and more colder.
Sangers is kinda like the "firetruck red". It's a bit dry (like all the other Illamasqua lipsticks I own, but easy to use and blend. And it's quite longlasting too!

And here's Throb nail varnish (with Illamasqua Boosh nail varnish):

Throb is really pretty bright redred. I own several red nail laquers, but none of them is quite like this one. I can't point what's different in the color, but there's something :D


  1. I really like your nail´s design. and red lips...

  2. I love that red lipstick..is so hot...

  3. I love your nails!

    Im liking the wingtip nails of the promopics aswell, as the combo of the black eyeliner with the little whiteabove it..

  4. Amazing - you have done suucccch a great job of it!

    Especially making the heart look 3D like in the promo pic!

  11. Oooh, those are really pretty pictures and I love your recreation of it. You are so talanted. =) Love your nails too!!

  12. I fell in love with the promo pictures from Throb myself, but I have to say you've done a fantastic replication! *applaud*

  13. If i could afford, you'd be my personal makeup artist..i love your style, you're super skilled.

  14. Like it?
    I freaking love this.

    Love from Norway!!

  15. I didn't like promo pics that much because model has a gap in her chin... ew! To me, that small detail just destroys the whole look. Colour of Sangers lipstick looks good, though, and if it is dryish and long-lasting it would be good alternative to MAC Ruby Woo.

  16. Wonderful job, you were featured on Illamasqua's Official Blog!

  17. The all face makeup is unbelievable! I wish I had the patience/talent to do that! <3
