Packaging: 9/10

Illamasqua’s Powder Blushers come in black, pinched-square, plastic compacts that snap shut and have see-through lids.

Quality: 10/10

Naked Rose is a soft, dusty pink shade with a matte finish. The color, even though it’s soft, is pigmented. This color is also universally flattering. A light layering of it will give those with fair skin a flush of color. Additional layers of the blush will give those with darker skin tones a natural tint to the cheeks.

The formula is soft without being overly dusty. The color blends beautifully across the skin and smooths out evenly.

If you’re looking for a cheek color that will pair with any makeup look, Naked Rose is a great choice.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

You may want to apply two (2) or more layers for a more obvious flush of color, but this blush is otherwise effortless to apply.

Price: 8.5/10

For $26.00 you get 4 grams (0.14 ounces) of blush (the price has increased by about $2.00 over the past year). 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.
