The Illamasqua powder blushes are very finely milled and because they are so pigmented only a little bit is needed for a beautiful flushed cheek. They also have a faint vanilla scent to them. Yummm....
Naked Rose - this is my absolute favourite colour. It's a neutral pink colour which I imagine would suit a lot of complexions. It looks a bit boring in the pan but looks amazing on cheeks. HERE is my full review of it.
Lover - this was my first Illamasqua blush, the reason for my love affair with Illamasqua blushes. A beautiful apricot shade that's perfect for summer. Previous review HERE.
Tremble - this is a milky pink colour that leans towards peach a little. I love wearing this during winter when my complexion is paler. Original review HERE.
Hussy - a warm, mid toned pink colour which looks great with a tan. It might be too dark for anyone fairer than NC25, but would look great on anyone with an olive skintone. Original review HERE.
Nymph - a cool, pale milky pink shade. If I'm not wearing Tremble then chances are I'm wearing Nymph when my complexion is paler. Previous review HERE.
I'm not normally a fan of cream blushes as they tend to slide off my face, especially in the heat of summer, but the Illamasqua ones are the longest lasting cream blushes that I've ever tried. Their texture is very wet feeling, but when applied they don't feel tacky. They can also be worn on the lips but do tend to dry out so a lip balm prior to applying these is essential.
Laid - this looks scarily bright in pan form (or when heavily swatched), but this raspberry pink shade is surprisingly easy to wear. HERE is the original review and FOTD with it.
Sob - a milky baby pink shade. Think Nymph but in cream format. Previous review HERE.
Rude - a warm coral shade which looks great on tanned or olive skin. HERE is my previous review.
