going back to blush

Illamasqua Velvet Cream Blush in Flirtatious review swatch photo


Illamasqua Velvet Blush in Flirtatious

I gave up on blush sometime last year but I've been craving a little colour on my cheeks for a while recently. I just felt like I was missing something. Rummaging around my stash I found the Illamasqua Velvet Cream Blush in Flirtatious., It's a strange texture thats creamy but has a powder finish. Applied on the apples of the cheeks Flirtatious brightens the face and brings some much needed colour to my look. Although I find it a bit hard to apply, it's very stiff as it's not very creamy so I have to sort of scrap the surface to get colour. But I really like the subtle pop of peachy pink!

  4. I've heard great things about Illumasqua blush and this colour is gorgeous on you! The Revlon Photo Ready Cream Blushers are also a cream to powder formula and really easy to blend if you want to try another brand! They have amazing colour pay off too!

  15. I definitely have those days when I just can't be bothered with blusher. I think it's because I just get bored!

    By the way your 'honest to vlog' video over the weekend was just beautiful, I really enjoyed watching!

  18. That sort of shade is my absolute favorite, I swear I have about 40 variations of peachy/pink shades in my collection and thats pretty much it.

  21. Lovely blush, very subtle and natural-looking. Not sure I'd pay over £20 just for a blush though.

  23. Nice subtle colour, I like it. I went through a phase of not using blusher but recently have started again. I use the Rimmel blusher.
