I stopped using powder blushers some few years ago when I noticed they were making my very dry skin look even chalkier and unatural, so I converted to cream and mousse based formulas. As an avid fan of Illamasqua's skin base foundation, I requested that the lovely lady behind the counter at Selfridges help me pick a cream blush shade suitable for my pale skin tone. I was pretty suprised to find that my skin actually suited this stunning salmon pink, and instantly snapped it up. The pigment is amazing, when initially put on the skin the shade is exactly how it looks in the compact, but after a little blending, it turns into a lovely dewy, subtle shade that looks flawlessly natural (no streaks!). The one and only downside is that the formula is quite greasy in the compact, which can be slightly off putting. It does not, however, feel greasy on the skin.
i love this blush and product line - very very pigmented, blendable and beautiful. i use these as a light "watercolor" flush where and when needed - as a pop of color over other blush if needed - as a final touch for most all my brides - i have every color and they are truly my workhorse in my kit. LOVE!
