I recently got my first taste of Illamasqua, and eager for more, I asked if anyone was willing to guest swatch. To my delight, reader Laura answered the call, with swatches of three of the blushes I had been wondering about. Laura is approximately NC15 on MAC’s scale. Here’s her rundown on these three shades:
Illamasqua Powder blushes are highly pigmented and totally matte. They are so pigmented that they apply easily without streaking or blotching and only the lightest touch is needed (for me, a skunk brush is ideal). The lasting power of these blushes is unparalleled in my opinion — the color last 8+ hours for me. Katie is a cool, milky pink; Lover is a light, clear apricot and Tremble is light, bright warm pink (the warmer sister to MAC’s Pink Swoon).
