I have to say that I am a huge fan of cream products: blushes, highlighters, shadows, liners etc. And I am also a big fan of blushes. And, yes, I love cream blushes but there are several powder blushes that I really like.
So today I want to tell you about the powder blush that I totally love. And it is Blush Subtil by Lancome. This is how it looks like on the promo picture and I am showing you a promo picture because my blushes are in a set.
This is how 2 blushes that I’ve got look like:
- Cedar Rose
Why do I like this blush so much?
- First of all it is oil free which is very good, especially for summer.
- It is matte, so it won’t look horrible on your pores. And to be honest, I don’t really understand how can anyone like very shiny/with shimmer blushes and bronzers.
- Because it’s matte it gives you a natural finish.
- It’s easy to work with this blush and it’s easy to blend it.
- These particular blushes are from
For the first time I heard about NARS because of their names : Orgasm, Super Orgasm, Deep Throat, Striptease and a lot of others. But the most famous name is Orgasm of course. Several years ago when I didn’t read any beauty blogs and I didn’t have my own I still heard a lot about this blush so it’s obvious that it’s the first item that I got from NARS. And since that my NARS collection is growing bigger. Even this week I got a new NARS blush.

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
