Who Can Resist This
Illamasqua Powder Blusher has such an elegant, simple but edgy packaging. The product comes with a black outer box made of card, the center part of the front box is hollow right on where the clear plastic lid is. The body of the blusher itself is dominated also in black color, on the center of the lid there is a clear plastic part plus the adorable embossed logo of Illamasqua, revealing the color inside. I love Illamasqua’s packaging, like seriously and ever. Period.
Every outer box has the information of the ingredients list on behind, make sure you check it because I also hear some people are allergic to certain ingredients contained in their blusher.
Description:Illuminate, radiate, make your face come alive with the colour and drama of Illamasqua Powder Blusher. Colour-intense and highly pigmented, use it to shade, brighten, enhance and define the shape of your face. Be bold, be daring, be the centre of attention.
Every product has 4.5 gram/0.15 oz in it. Find the description of the product on the bottom part of the product, it’s on the sticker along with the shade name.
Naked Rose is described as neutral beige pink. Its description describes the color the best and this kind of color is so neutral it can work on most people—even all, I think! Not too cool, yet not too warm. The color is definitely a light pink and it has matte finish, but it’s really flattering on every skin tone and undertone. Even on the palest skin to the darkest one, this blush will show up just beautifully like a natural flush.
The texture of the blush honestly made me screamed the first time I touched it, because it was very soft and smooth, and buttery! It’s a bit more buttery than theBalm Boy series blush. Due to the formula, fallout may occur if you use brush with harsh bristles. Try a soft bristles one, and you will find occur no fallouts! The pigmentation, is that what you’re asking me? It’s supeeeeer pigmented, and still buildable! I really suggest you to use it light-handed and still do tap off the excess of the blush, because you can get too much on cheeks. Even so, the application is pretty much easy and this blush will do well in those no-brainer days.
Too Good To Be True
For the staying power, sorry to say it’s BEYOND AWESOME. Yes, beyond. Stressing on that word, indeed! Usually a light color blush like this one fades faster than the darker ones, but with this blush, it doesn’t budge, it doesn’t fade, it doesn’t oxidize and the color stays true to what when it’s first applied. Not lying or being overly dramatic here, I’m telling you what I experienced myself after wearing it 9-10 hours straight! ~(‾‾ᴥ‾‾)~
|can you see it? on the left cheek it's sure more visible! sorry, this photo was taken from my phone cam after 10 hrs of wearing~|
Retailing for ₤18 at Illamasqua or ASOS, actually it’s pretty expensive but trust me it’s worth every penny spent. I would exactly repurchase this shade and getting more shades from the collection!
If you’re looking for your very first blush, I think this Naked Rose from Illamasqua is a perfect choice. It has neutral undertone so it can work with any looks and any color schemes of your look. With the soft and smooth formula plus a great pigmentation and staying power, you will never go wrong with this blush. A little goes a long way, which line suits this incredible blush the best!
So! Are you tempted already to buy this blush? I say it, no regret baby! Buy it, and proof me <3
