Illamasqua Blush, Part 4

Though Sephora carries almost the full line of Illamasqua powder blushes, Americans have access to only a few of the cream blushes (you can’t win them all). There are just three shades in my brick-and-mortar Sephora — five if you’re shopping online.

Here are the light swatches. I made these by rubbing a finger in the product, tapping a bit on my arm, then blending with clean fingers. The texture was very nice, and the product seemed quite blendable, though — like the powder blushes — they’re definitely pigmented, so start slow and build.

Libido looks peach; Rude is a warm pink — and both Libido and Rude are free of any frost/shimmer/sparkle. I don’t know if I would have called Lies a blush… it seemed more like a highlighter. It’s pale, shimmery pink.

Here are heavy swatches:

I never know if it’s worthwhile to do a heavy swatch of a cream blush… you basically get the same color that you see in the pan. But you can see that with layering, Libido is quite orange.

Like the powder blushes, these are $24 each in the U.S.

    wow rude is so pretty. I have to thank you for your earlier swatches of bobbi brown’s pot rouge btw! found a perfect shade through your arms :P

    Wow, you did the cream blush swatches too! I love Rude, this is one of my favorite everyday blushes, I love Rude more than MUFE HD Quikie.

    Are you going to swatch their Rich Liquid Foundation too? I need to know the difference between RF233 & RF240. I hate their swatch, we don’t have Illamasqua store here in my country, and every time I bought this stuff (online), I always get the wrong shades! Arrggghhh….

    Anyway, just like colorcorner, I found many HG products through your arms, thanks! :D
