Tease, hypnotise, use to effect. Use Cream Blusher to highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity you desire. Use over foundation for impact, or under for a captivating glow. However you apply it, be daring.
Illamasqua’s Powder Blushers are available in 17 different shades. This review is for the shade Hussy–a bright petal pink.
Illamasqua’s Powder Blushers come in black, pinched-square, plastic compacts that snap shut and have see-through lids.
Hussy is one of the brightest shades I’ve ever come across. If a watermelon-pink and coral had a baby, Hussy is the shade you’d get. This color will look fantastic on deep skin tones and can look beautiful on light skin too, as long as you use a light hand.
The formula is fairly soft, isn’t powdery, and isn’t chalky. It applies in a fairly even and smooth manner and has no trouble retaining its strong color throughout the day.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
Lightly dab your brush into the pan, tap it off, and then apply. The powder adheres well to the skin, so if you apply too much, you’ll have a hard time correcting the clownish effect you’d get. Even after a light application, I like to buff over the powder with a clean brush to soften the effect.
For $24.00 you get 4 grams (0.14 ounces) of blush. MAC Powder Blushes are $20.00 and contain 6 grams (0.21 ounces) of product. NARS blushes are $28.00 and contain 0.16 ounces. You get a better deal compared to NARS, but pay significantly more compared to MAC.
