Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude. Review & Cheek Swatches

Today I would like to tell you about my favourite product by Illamasqua – their Cream Blusher in Rude.  What is written about:

Cream Blusher, £16.00 ($23 in the US)

Tease, hypnotise, use to effect. Highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity you desire. Use over foundation for impact, or under for a captivating glow. However you apply it, be daring.

This is how the blush looks like

So what do I like about it so much? Absolutely everything! All Illamasqua products have fabulous design.  The colour (I have Rude) is very pigmented & you’ll need just a tiny amount of it, so this blush would last you forever. It’s very easy to blend this blush and it looks amazing on all skin types. I really like how it smells ;). But what is the most important – the blush stays on for a very long time! And I have what to compare with.

The conclusion? This is my favourite product by Illamasqua and I would highly recommend you to try it! Check out how it looks like on the cheeks

By the way, the lipstick that I am wearing is Illamasqua’s Over (matte vibrant coral)

When I got this blush I forgot about my Chanel and Nars so you can guess how much I love it. And what are your thoughts? Do share!

Can be purchased from Bloomingdales or Selfridges.

    I love Rude, but it’s much more subtle on me than I thought. I only use a light dab on each cheek though, because of the pink tones.

    Hi tati
    Thank you for the comment. I understand. Sometimes the colour is great but is just not for you. For e.g I don’t like how Nars Orgasm looks on me.

  6. Wow, this looks much better on your skin than in the pan! In the pan it kinda looks scary, but it looks so great on you!

    This color is beautiful and gives such a nice healthy glow! Another reason for me to cry. Illamasqua has no plans to come to Canada. 🙁
