I had the chance to play with some Illamasqua blushes last year. I did love the shade Lover a lot but didn't feel the need to rush out and buy it. Incidentally Illamasqua is now available in Singapore at Robinsons Orchard. ASOS had a 30% off and I immediately jumped at the chance of getting the blush duo with Lover in it. I got this for SGD $43. It usually retails for SGD $60.84 on the website. I'm not sure how much it sells at the counters in Singapore though.
I must tell you I'm not in love with the packaging. It is thick and bulky. Its made pf plastic. I wish it was more compact and sleek though.
The thing I love about these blushes is, they are matte and pigmented. They are powdery and will kick up powder when you use them. They also seem more fragile to me. I have a feeling that if I dropped this, the blushes would shatter. They aren't as finely milled or soft as the luxury brands for example Burberry but they are good enough.
Here I have Hussy on my cheeks.
Here is Lover on my cheeks.
I wore Lover out to meet my mom for lunch.
There are a total of 3 blush duos.
I don't see any other duos that I would want but I am mighty curious about Naked Rose, their powder blush. Perhaps I'll go swatch that.
