Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo // Lover and Hussy* – £26
This festive time, Illamasqua aren’t wishing for a white Christmas. Oh no, they are wishing for much more beautiful, and possibly more achievable things. Their Christmas gifts are brimming full of glitter-studded polishes and luxe palettes, and this particular powder blush duo is certainly the thing that (Christmas) dreams are made up. Comprising of two beautiful matte shades, Lover and Hussy (ooh er), this palette is the perfect antidote to soothe those peach and pink blusher cravings. Lover is described as a ‘soft apricot’ and is a peachy dream. Both blushers are highly pigmented so approach with the softly-softly approach first and then layer from there. Hussy is a lot less risque than it sounds and is a gorgeous ‘candy pink’ that really gives your cheeks a rosy, wind-bitten flush.The blusher palette is not only limited edition but also Illamasqua’s first blush duo ever, so maybe one for the keen collector/makeup hoarder!
I really love this blush duo and it refreshing to see a holiday collection palette that isn’t packed full of glitter and shimmer. I mean, I love my glitter but I like the fact that Illamasqua have kept these shades matte, allowing you the freedom to dazzle your eyes with sparkles or slick on a bright lip without overpowering your look.
Will you be adding this to your Christmas list?
