Hello everyone! As I mentioned in a recent post about the Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation, I visited the Illamasqua counter in Selfridges in the Bullring, Birmingham. When I was colour matched, the lady also put this gorgeous blusher on me and I made an impulse purchase. Oops!I love all of the Illamasqua packaging as it looks quite different to many other brands. I love that you can see which colour it is just by looking and not having to open it, and that makes my decision easier of what blush to wear! (Also if I bought more Illamasqua Blush I would know which shade was which without having to root through them all).I know some of you may think ‘What a messy blush’ – It’s well loved!

The colour of the blush is a very natural shade of pink, and applies perfectly onto my face with help from the Real Techniques Blush Brush. A little goes a long way – I only swipe my brush across this once and have enough product to apply to my face! I feel that this blush is perfect for everyday wear. As you can see in the above swatch, this just adds a little extra to my everyday make up look without anything too dramatic! I find it lasts about 6-8 hours before it needs topping up, which is amazing as I’m rarely out for longer than 8 hours so it means I don’t have to carry it around. Overall, I absolutely love this blush and this is my favourite I have found so far.

Have you tried Illamasqua blush? What did you think?
