No, I don’t work for Illamasqua.
Nevertheless, incase you haven’t noticed, I’ve become very enamoured with the brand.
I have three powder blushes so far and they are GORGEOUS, and practical if I don’t say so myself.
What do we have here? The perfect pink, the perfect peach and the perfect brown.
But I must be honest. Would it work for the extremely fair or the redhead-nutty’s? Maybe not. You may need to move for something a little cooler or brownier.
Works perfect though for warm skin tones, for black skins, brown skins, yellow skins, tanned skins – GORGEOUS!
Then we have the pink – this is HUSSY.
I must emphasize that there are tons of shades to choose from on Illamasqua but I just happened to pick this pink. I wanted a true, candy, perfect bubblegum pink. This pink had to be full bodied. It had to be bright so I could apply it with a light hand…and this works.
Hussy reminds me of a perfect pinky apple pink. Once again, this particular pink looks good on wamer skin tones but they do have cooler pinks.
Finally, my favourite of the lot! Mischief.
This works for anything and everything. I use it every day now, without fail. It’s matte so no hideous shimmers all over my face – I use it as a contour (in a figure of 3 on the side of the face) under the chin, the sides of the nose, under the cheek bone as a contour, on the forehead as a bronzer. It’s the perfect shade because its not too dark – no dark streaks.
I believe Illamasqua make a selection of shades of these brown toned contouring powders, so you can get one that’s best for your skin so it is neither too light nor too dark. I am a NC35/0C60/Beige in Chanel.
I am all for blushers with no/minimal shimmer. You can always add the shimmery glow later with a Shimmerbrick, or a highlighting powder.
Next on my list – Illamasqua’s yellow powder blush (for neutralizing red) and a plummy coloured blush!
