Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo in Katie and Ambition Review and Swatches

I received several items from the Illamasqua’s SS13 makeup collection I’M Perfection and today want to show you one of the blushers.

It is  a Powder Blusher Duo (£26) in Katie (Candy Pink) and Ambition (Neutral).

Although I love cream blushers more, and I do adore the brand’s Rude, I like Illamasqua’s powder blushers, as well. I have actually featured one, in Allure, already.

Here is how the duo looks like, I love the sleek package and the big and handy mirror inside.

Illamasqua powder blushers are very pigmented, so you will need a tiny amount of the  product. They are also smooth and not chalky, which means that it’s easy to blend the product into the skin.

As for these particular shades – Katie is a light  baby pink, it should look awesome on fair skin tones and may look ashy on medium/darker skins. As for Ambition, it is a

Favourite Blush: Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose Review and Cheek Swatches

Today I want to show you my ultimate blush love. These days I hardly use any powder blushes on myself. But I still love my Chanel Orchid Rose and I use it a lot.

Ever since getting this shade of Joues Contraste a few years ago  I have been the biggest fan.  Orchid Rose gets used every single day!

This is how it looks like in the pan:

The very clever  sales assistant who works  at my local Chanel counter  told me that Orchid Rose was their bestseller. Apparently, it suits most skin tones.

Below you can see how it looks like on my hand. Although it is a powder blush, it melds into the skin, and never sits on top.

I rarely post photos of myself but today I want to show you how this blush looks like on my face.

The Best Cream Blushes For Spring. Review and Swatches

Finally I have written my second  post for the Make Up Geek. This time it is about my favourite non-powder blushes for Spring season. It was very hard to choose my favourite but I’ve managed to choose seven from different price categories.

So here is the article with a review and a swatch on each of them.

Although I have tried quite a few there are so many that I still want to try, I will share my wish list (pretty much everything I haven’t tried)  with you some other day. If you have a holy grail cream/liquid/mousse/gel blush please share!

NYX Cream Blush in Hot Pink Review, Photos and Swatches

It’s not a secret that I love luxury cream (liquid and gel, too) blushes so for me it’s a great investment. But  some of the readers asked me to review several  affordable blushes.

I’ve already reviewed Max Factor and Maybelline blushes so now it’s time for NYX. I have to say that I’ve got this blush specially for the review.
The shade that I have is called Hot Pink and let me tell you, it is really hot! The colour is very bright and extremely pigmented so if you have a light skin tone  – be very careful with the application. You will need the tiniest amount of this product.

The price in the UK is £9.95 but in the Sates it’s much cheaper and retails for $6.50 only. You get a pretty big blush for your money, here is just the comparison with Max Factor’s one.

It is easy to use this blush, the texture is nice and I like the way it blends; you can get a natural finish if you blend it well. This particular shade looks great on

Daniel Sandler Radiant Glow Review and Swatches

If you are a long-time reader, you probably know that I am die-hard fan of Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Blush (these two are my favourite), so I was  excited to  receive  his newest product  a while ago – Radiant Glow Illuminating Face Powder. I love the fact that Daniel does not release 100 new products every year but when he does you can be sure that it is high quality and reasonably priced.

The newest face powder comes in a signature gold and black packaging, and the product itself consists of four shades which can be used individually or mixed together.
