Hey Beauties!

I went a little crazy in Illamasqua yesterday, i spent my voucher from the Debenhams Press Show so I got a few bits and pieces from Illamasqua.
I bought the Powder Blush Duo in Katie and Ambition because one was really sparkly and the other was Katie which I needed a new one of anyway

Colour/Pigmentation


Illamasqua Blushes are so highly pigmented you really do need to use a light hand when applying as if you apply to much you will get the clown cheeks and no one wants that.
Katie would be great for those of you who are really pale, its a soft pink tone that wont scream out Makeup! rather a soft rosey lush.
Ambition is a medium pink with warm undertones, it reminds me of NARS Orgasm but more of a plum tone than a pink tone which would look great on medium skin tones and darker skin tones. The glitter in this blush isn’t actually massively disco ball glitter as it seems to melt into skin to provide this really flattering glow





Wear Time





Since these Blushes are really pigmented they will last a long time, usually they will last about 7+ hours on a good day what I really like about these blushes as they seem to melt into the skin and I think that’s what makes them last longer as they don’t just sit on the skin

Packaging


I absolutely love Illamasqua packaging as they all have this same shape which is a square type shape that is kept the same across the whole range, everything is aso stamped with the Illamasqua Logo

Price and where to buy





You can purchase the Blush Duo’s from www.illamasqua.com or from any Illamasqua Counter. They retail for £26 for 2g per blush
The Good and The Bad
The Good?- They are really pigmented so will last all day
The Bad?- Sometimes the product smashes ive had a powder or 2 smash on me before


What is your favourite Illamasqua Blush?

Reading this and looking at the swatches makes me really want Katie. I think it would look great on my pale skin and I really want a pale pink blush at the moment, I'm getting sick of the rosey cheek look. (plus it also has my name......whats not to love about it!)

I keep thinking about getting one of the blushes but I never do because every single blush I've used looks cartoonish on me, no matter how I apply it - I don't want to splash out on something that I'll probably chuck in a drawer and never use, bit they look so nice on others!

I actually got this a few days ago but haven't had a chance to try it out yet. I'm very pale so I'm glad to hear that Katie is good for pale skin tones. I have heard several people say Illamasqua blushers are really good so looking forward to trying it out.thelittleblogofbeauty.tumblr.com
