My go to blusher has always been my MAC mineralize blusher in Dainty, however as I'm running really low on that I thought I'd branch out and try another brand! I've had my eye on Illamasqua products for a while now, what with the cute speckled egg-like nail polishes they've just realised, so thought this was an ideal time to test them out.
Not only did I want to try a new brand, but I wanted to try a new shade too. My usual blusher choice is a deep pink, like NARS Amour (post here), so this pastel pink is quite a difference for me. I love the Illamasqua packaging, filled with quotes about being whoever you want to be etc etc. The blusher itself is very pigmented, you only need to dab your brush to get a lot of product. It's very easy to build, I tend to start with a very light layer of the blusher and build it up slowly to get the desired colour, while still blending properly. This might sound odd but it also smells lovely! Kind of like sweets, dolly mixture or something like that.
Overall I love this blusher. I'm glad I took the plunge and tried a new brand and a new shade! Have you tried any Illamasqua products? What's your go-to blusher shade? x
P.S. I'm going away on holiday on Saturday! Yay :) I'm off on a snowboarding holiday in Tignes, France. I will have some posts scheduled up for while I'm away and my giveaway will also be running until I get back too, so you shouldn't miss me too much! :)
