a heart throb

I’d be left aghast if you weren’t aware of Illamasqua’s latest collection to be released and grace the beauty altar. Throb is a seductive salutation to St Valentine, and exudes erotic sensuality and unashamedly brazen femme fatale.    

Illamasqua have released five products; three nail varnishes, one lipstick and one lipgloss, to quicken your pulses and awaken your senses. 

Below is Succubus, Illamasqua’s Intense Lipgloss. A temptingly rich deep, blood-red stain which tantalises the lips with its enchanting glossy finish and captivating hue.

I was intrigued to what was a Succubus, so let me expand.

Succubus is a female demon, traced back in folklore to medieval legend. She was a seductress, appearing in dreams, taking the form of an alluring woman, to seduce men. She embodied temptation, passion and a sense of desire.

This gloss is certainly desirable. It is very thick, highly-pigmented, and best applied with a lip brush. The colour pay off is extreme, and a little goes a long way. It is a luscious lip colour, bold and unafraid.

If you are enticed by the new collection, then it is online now.
Does this get your heart throbbing?
