illamasqua morale blusher

Last month I attended the Illamasqua event to celebrate the launch of their newest collection – Theatre of the Nameless. It was an intriguing, climatic evening of costumes and flamboyance, fuelled by a heady cast of cocktails. The new collection offers an eclectic range of products and revels in the gloriousness of opulent shimmer, rich and sophisticated tones and fearless application. 

There were quite a few products that really appealed to me; namely Beguile, a spellbinding iridescent pigment and Havoc, an exotically coloured Precision Ink. This is not to mention their two new sets of false eyelashes; handmade, extravagant and offering a fluttery, theatrical finesse to your eye look. However, Illamasqua’s two new shimmer blushers, Ambition and Morale, are truly beautiful and stole the show for me. They are decadently ladened with glimmer and luminosity, adding such radiance to your face.

Morale is described as a ‘rosed flush’ and is a gorgeously glowing pinky/purple with metallic shimmer. It dusts on like a dream and add such a pretty flush to your cheeks. This blush is extremely pigmented so a little goes a long way and you have to be delicate on application. Over the Summer I was obsessed with peachy and golden-toned blushers, but for the Autumn Winter, I am tending to veer towards the warmer, richer tones and berry hues – Morale being the perfect blush of the season. 

Theatre of the Nameless is out now and available online and at Illamasqua counters.

Have you tried anything from this new range?

    Ooh Morale looks gorgeous on you, at the launch it was that and the Beguille pigment that really stood out for me! Both so so beautiful.
    I have the Ambition blush though and think it is amazing. Like you said, I have to use a very light hand with it but the results are amazing. xxx

    Ambition and Morale were the standout pieces for me too and I *had* to have them. I've worn them religiously since and they may be my favourite blushers ever. Bold statement but they are SO amazing. x

    The shade is beautiful but I think it would be too out-there for my pale skin tone although it really suits you and I like how you've applied it! I have Hussy blush and it's so bright I can hardly wear it without looking like a drag queen lol xx
