I’ve been slow to hop on board this band wagon, and let me just say am I glad I finally did. Illamasqua products have always caught my eye on numerous blog posts and youtube videos, so I finally decided to purchase this blush with the hope that I would love it. I picked up one of their Powder Blushers in the shade Beg. This isn’t the kind of shade that I would usually pick, especially with summer around the corner, but for some reason this shade instantly jumped out to me. As you can see from the pictures, it’s a beautiful deep pink shade with almost hints of burgundy running through. Typically, this cheek colour would be worn more in Autumn/Winter as it is a deep and dark shade. However, I find that this looks so much more beautiful once applied to the cheeks. It gives the most perfect pinky/reddy flush which I actually think enhances the skin, especially with a tan.
The first thing I noticed, apart from the colour, was the packaging. Illamasqua defiantly know how to package their products, it looks stunning and is something that really makes you want to display it so that everyone can see. Not only this, but I love the fact that it had a clear little ‘window’ on top, making it easy to see the shade once among your other Blushers and makeup products – very handy!
The formula of the product itself is very velvety to the touch which makes applying extremely easy and flawless once on the skin. It’s also very pigmented, so you only need to lightly tap your brush into the power and you will have enough. As far as lasting power goes, I find that it lasts pretty much all day (I wear make-up from around 7am to about 5pm) so I can’t complain there.
All in all this is a gorgeous blush that I think would suit any skin tones. I would defiantly recommend picking it up when you’re next near an Illamasqua counter!
