Illamasqua's powder blushes are my absolute favourite products from their range, and that's saying a lot as I love all their products. If I was allowed to wear blushes from only one brand for the rest of my life, I would choose Illamasqua blushes. Their blushes are all extra finely milled, super soft, super pigmented and very easy to blend. And they also have a faint vanilla smell which I find so lovely when applying.
Illamasqua powder blush in Nymph
Illamasqua describe this as warm candy pink with matte finish. I don't know about you, but I would definitely put this in the cool pink category especially seen side by side with the warmer Tremble. This is my English Rose blush, in that if I was a character in a Jane Austen novel my cheeks would be flushed pink with Nymph.
Illamasqua powder blush in Tremble
Illamasqua website describes Tremble as soft lilac pink with matte finish. I'm not sure about the lilac bit, but it's a pale warm coral pink that adds a warm flush to the cheeks. If you'd like to fake a peaches 'n' cream complexion, this is the colour for you.
|Wearing Illamasqua powder blush in Tremble|
Whenever I'm looking to buy a new blush I always like to look for swatches comparing them to my existing colours just so I don't end up with dupes. Here are some comparison to ones that I thought would be similar to Nymph and Tremble, and as you can see from the swatches below none of them are even close. Tremble and MAC Dainty are the closest matches, but Dainty is shimmery with Tremble having a matte finish.
