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).
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
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:
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.
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!
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.
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.
The shades, as described by the brand are: a bright high shimmer gold, a rich shimmery peach, a beautiful creamy white and a pale peach with a gorgeous sheen.
Below you can see how each shade looks when applied, and also how they look when
