Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo // Lover and Hussy* – £26
available online

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?

    I think they'd work well on tanned skin, but the pink would look great for a flush of colour.
    I always love the packaging of Illamasqua, clean and sleek.

    this is a really cool idea, but i hate the fact that they aren't exactly generous with the quantity!it would have been great if that had a bit more product in there!

    Absolutely stunning colours!! I've never actually used any of Illamasqua's products, however, I am on the hunt for a new blush and the fact that you get 2 in 1 with this one is definitely a plus!! May be putting this on my list to Santa! xx

    I've been wanting to try Illamasqua products for the longest time but I never thought that they were such great quality! That blush duo is definitely going onto my christmas wish list!

    This looks like such a pretty duo and I love that both colours are wearable. Usually there is one colour I like and one I don't in duos.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Love it!

    These look beautiful! I'd happily own both 🙂 xo

    Gorgeous colours but the bronzer looks slightly orangey for me! The NARS orgasm laguna duo seems a bit more value for money but love both packaging 🙂 xo

    Both colours look so nice. xo

  19. 17th November 2012 / 8:19 pm

    I'm super pale and both colours are lovely on my skin. My only quibble is that you get 0.4g less product than their regular blush, and yet pay considerably more

    The colours are gourgeous, very pigmented and lovely packaging!! xo

    Wow,I so want this now *__*
