Today, I am going to review my very first pink blush which I love to death! Its Illamasqua Blush in Hussy. Illamasqua products have always created a big hype and all makeup enthusiasts want to get their hands on them. After my not-so-good experience with their masquara, honestly I was not sure what to expect, but this blush seriously took me by surprise. So, let’s find out more about it, shall we?
Illamasqua products always had that historical and artistic feel to it and this blush is no different. I love the packaging, it comes in a black case and has that classy feel to it. Its sleek and elegant and makes me feel special. The black case is beautiful and very sturdy. It shuts tights so you can easily take it around with you while travelling. To be honest, its quite tight and some times, I have to put in a bit more effort to open it. The case has “Illamasqua” written right at the opening.
So, what does Illamasqua say about the product:
My Experience with Illamasqua Blush in Hussy:
This is my first pink blush ever and I am in head over love with it. The first time I swatched it, I was super impressed by the pigmentation and texture of the blush. I don’t own a lot of blushes actually, just about 5 I think, including this one and none of the MAC blushes, so cannot compare with MAC, but it has incredibly smooth and buttery feel to it! The texture is very finely milled and goes on smoothly on the skin without making it look patchy.
Its a completely matte blush, so very apt for day time wear. The pigmentation is just AWESOME! Seriously, you just need one swipe and you get loads of color. This is one of those blushes you have to use with a very light hand or else it can make you look like a clown! But if used with light hand, it just gives that amazing glow to your face.
The color is a beautiful peachy pink, more towards pink, and I think it would suit all skin tones. I have even used this blush as an eyeshadow and it works amazingly well. So, this is a multi-purpose product!
The staying powder is amazing due to its high pigmentation. It stays for 4 to 6 hours on me easily. The only con I find is that its very expensive! It retails for 16 pounds I think which is quite expensive according to me, though we get a lot of product, i.e., 4.5 gms of product in the pan. Still, I don’t feel it justifies such a steep price.
The swatches below are taken in day light and its only swiped once. See for yourself how amazingly pigmented it is!
Pros of Illamasqua Blush in Hussy:
- Beautiful candy pink color.
- Extremely finely milled texture.
- Goes on to the skin buttery smooth without being patchy.
- Due to the fine texture, its easy to blend.
- The staying power is awesome.
- Extremely high pigmentation, just one swipe is enough.
- Easily available online on the company’s website, Illamasqua ships worldwide.
- Can be used as an eyeshadow too 🙂
Cons of Illamasqua Blush in Hussy:
- Very expensive.
- Its only available through Illamasqua website.
- Though not exactly a con, but one needs to be careful to use it with a light hand, otherwise, it can make you look like a clown.
Do I Recommend Illamasqua Blush in Hussy?
Absolutely yes, if you can afford it, but seriously, I would not buy it again as I truly feel its quite expensive and we can find similar products in less expensive brands like MAC, Inglot, etc., but if you can afford it or just want to try one product from Illamasqua, definitely give it a go as its an amazing product.
Hope this review was helpful, until tomorrow, stay beautiful 🙂
