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.
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)
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.
