This year for Valentine's Day, Illamasqua have released a mini collection full of some gorgeous blood reds and amazing promo pictures. The collection is due to be released on Monday (17th).

Wanna take a look?



Feel your pulse quicken, your heart throbbing in your chest. These are Illamasqua’s latest offerings at the altar of beauty, guaranteed to make you gasp with pleasure.

Bite ...
Awaken your mouth’s erotic sensuality with the seductive red of Succubus Intense Lipgloss or enjoy the power of being an unashamedly brazen femme fatale with blood red Sangers Lipstick.

... and Scratch
Throb is a passionate red Nail Varnish, the colour of blood spilled by desperate, rejected lovers. Load is a rich, cream coating for the nails and Scorn’s midnight black matt finish is filled with contempt for the love of convention.

I was just going back to sleep this morning when I heard my Dad come upstairs and a package flinging it's self towards me. Why does he always do that?!


I got an email a few days ago telling me to 'keep an eye on the post'.

I ripped it open in excitement to find 'Load' included inside.


Excuse the quick swatch and horrible cuticles. I can't believe I'm even putting this up. I hate short nails on myself.

Illamasqua describe this as a 'rich, cream coating for the nails'. It's definitely that. As with all their polishes, it's opaque in two coats. Very reminiscent of the cream that goes along with their packaging, quite similar to the inside of the boxes.

Honestly not a colour I would have picked out myself as I don't do any form of neutral colours but this is definitely a new take on a nude nail, for me.

Do you like the look of the new products or will you be skipping? I so want that Intense Gloss! Looks wonderful in the promo.
