A while ago a makeup artist I worked with introduced me to Illamasqua and I’ve been re-discovering it since I came to London. The Powder Blusher Duo is a gorgeous compact with a mirror and contains two beautiful matt shades called Lover and Hussy. Yes the colors are extremely bright and highly pigmented, but also very versatile – and perfect for spring time!
Lover is a corally orange color described as “soft apricot” and I picture it will work well on those with warm undertones. Hussy is a blue-based bright pink described as a “candy pink”. These blushers are extremely pigmented but also very smooth and easy to blend to get just a hint of color to your skin. I must admit, they do look pretty dark and scary but I find them much better than paler shades that need a lot of product to build up a decent result. A little goes a long way and these blushers will probably last forever.
I get my best and most natural-looking results with these when I apply one layer using a circular motion, really buffing and working them into the skin with my brush. For now, Hussy is the shade I have been using the most, but I picture myself using Lover a lot in summer when I’m more tanned.
Have you tried any Illamasqua products before? Do you use blushers? :)
