Comparison Request - Illamasqua Throb vs Ruthless

I get asked a LOT "How does X compare to Y?" So I'm going to start a series of "Comparison Request" posts. Let me know if you like them or if you have any requests. If I have the polishes, I'll gladly oblige.

They will be "quick and dirty" posts with a quick shot, sometimes on the hand and sometimes on swatch wheels or maybe just a bottle shot.

First up, Illamasqua Throb vs. Illamasqua Ruthless. I reviewed Throb here.

Throb is a deeper blue-based red while Ruthless is an orange-based red. Throb is a one-coat creme and Ruthless is a two-coat creme or maybe even a crelly (creme/crelly.)

Let me know if you want these to continue or if you have a request. ♥

  1. Aha!! So the one I like best among these two is .... drum roll.... Ruthless!!
    That's a good thing, right?? LOL

    I love comparisons! thanks!!!

  2. Definitely need Throb. And you already know I love the comparison posts. ♥

  3. I love comparison posts! Throb is where its at for me. Though I do love me some orange and red orange on occasion so I guess tomorrow I might be in love with Ruthless
