Recently Illamasqua is having free shipping promotion. I have never had any Illamasqua products before and so excited to grab few products that I might like. Many people gave positive review about Illamasqua products especially the blushes. The order came after approximately 2 weeks in a black box and wrapped nicely.
I bought a blush in Hussy, and a pair of nail polish in Viridian and Glitterati. Illamasqua packed a sample perfume bottle in Freak.
Illamasqua described Hussy as a bright candy matte blush. Personally I see this as a bright pink with a hint of coral in it. The texture of this blush is very nice. The pigmentation is fine, it’s not too heavy. It’s nice to swipe my Tom Ford Cheek Brush without worrying that it’s going to have too much blush in it. This blush blends very well too. In terms of longevity, this blush works fine. It lasts for about 4-5 hours with me.
The packaging is made with a black plastic case. There’s nothing much special about the packaging. I did not go crazy about the packaging but it looks pretty fine.
I did a comparison of Hussy and Bobbi Brown in Peony. Hussy leans more towards peachy and Peony is a very bright pink.
This is how it looks on me.
For a first purchase, I would say I am impressed with the texture. I like the Hussy as it brighten up my overall look. For a £16 product, I think this product is worth trying.
