Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo in Katie & Ambition

Happy hump day!! It feels like this week has flew by so quickly. I’ve been trying to hit the gym more often, hoping to fit in 4 workouts this week which will be quite an achievement for me (I’m known for my laziness). I wish we could just eat chips and not gain weight!! Anyway back on topic, today I will be reviewing Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo in Katie & Ambition! I am absolutely in love with this blush, let me tell you this blush is so gorgeous. When this landed on my desk, I was dying to use it the following day but I couldn’t until I took photos of it. If you look carefully in the photos you’ll see finger marks because I couldn’t resist myself.

Each Powder Blusher Duo contains two colour-intense Powder Blusher shades. Use each shade alone or together to brighten, enhance and contour; each duo is presented in a high-gloss portable compact with inner mirror.

Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo Katie & Ambition Katie is a matte light baby pink, it should look awesome on fair skin tones and may not look as well on medium/darker skins. As for Ambition, it is a warmer shade with a bit of shimmer, which will look beautiful on a lot of skin tones.

Illamasqua Blushes are quite pigmented, you don’t need a lot to see the blush. Use a light hand while applying otherwise you’ll end up looking like a clown (e.g Me! That’s what I did lol)

Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo Katie & Ambition

What I love about this blush:

  • 2 colours for one affordable price ($39 at Myer)
  • Very pigmented
  • Blends easily
  • Long lasting – stays on my face for a good day
  • Packaging is awesome, comes with a mirror.

Other shades available are:

  • Lover & Hussy – Candy Pink / Dusky Rose
  • Beg & Bronzerella – Dusky Rose / Copper Bronze

If you find Katie being too light, just blend it together with Ambition. which ends up being a really pretty pink. I wish I took photos of the two blushes combined but didn’t think of it at the time. This blusher duo is priced at $39 and is available at Illamasqua counters in Myer. The price is great for the quality you get.

    amibition looks super pretty! the price is definitely great for the quality and pigmentation, but i wish it was bigger so theres a bit more room for you to dab your brush in freely without touching the other colour :/? maybe its just me 😛

    Hey Kerri, I won this in a giveaway and I can’t wait for it to arrive! Most swatches I’ve seen aren’t as clear as yours. Kudos for doing such a great job! I’m not too sure Katie will work very well on me. It’s probably going to be the most matte and candy pink blush I’ve ever tried. Still, it’d be cool if I could make it work!

      Hi Sunny!! Wow thank you, means a lot!! I did take like 50 million photos trying to find the best looking one. Yeh Katie is a bit light on its own but I like to use it on top of ambition or on top of any darker blush.
