When Illamasqua was still very much the new kid on the block, there was always a lot of talk about their blushers. They don't seem to get as much love anymore but they're still just as deserving so in view of that, I thought I would share my little collection
I can't actually remember which came first but I know that I bought Beg, Unrequited and Rude in quick succession. I received Morale in my event bag for the recent Theatre of the Nameless release and you can see how it looks when applied in this post.
This is one of those moment where I can feel proud that I have selection of very different colours! Unrequited in a vibrant girly pink and Beg is probably best described as a deep rosy brown. Both of these colours are matte powder blushers. Rude is my only cream blusher from Illamasqua and I know it looks quite scary when swatched. On the cheeks it translates to a beautiful coral flush. The cream formula gives it a very fresh look and it's a perfect choice for warmer weather. Morale is Illamasqua's first foray into a shimmer finish (Ambition is also a shimmer finish and currently on my 'to buy' list). When swatched it looks almost metallic. On the cheeks this has the most amazing sheen. It reminds me a little of a MAC MSF but without the chunky glitter.
All of these blushers are very pigmented so a little goes a long way. They also last very well. I don't imagine that I will be hitting pan anytime soon! They cost £16.50 each but I have a feeling I picked a couple of these up from ASOS whilst they has special deals on. All of these shades are still available, although I see that Morale is currently sold out on the Illamasqua website. No doubt because of the free delivery offer they have at the moment.
Do you have a favourite Illamasqua blusher?
