As you know, I am such a big fan of Illamasqua powder blush. Previously I have reviewed Illamasqua blush in Hussy, and today I have Sophie which has different finish compared to Hussy.
Sophie is a peachy shade with golden shimmer. On the pan, somehow it reminds me of Nars Orgasm blush. Both of them have the rosy peachy pink – rosy shade and the shimmers too. However after comparing these two, I realized that Nars Orgasm is more shimmery and it looks more rosy; whereas Sophe emphasized more on the peachy pink shade rather than the rosy shade.
Sophie has a beautiful texture; it is nicely pigmented and it feels very smooth. The swatch is true to pan on the first swatch. The peachy pink shade is suitable for many skintones and the shimmer in this blush is just nice to give you that beautiful glow without making you look like a disco ball. It is very easy to build up the color and the texture is not chalky.
In the swatches below, you can see the difference when the blush is blended and when it is swatched. When it is blended, it looks natural with the glow from the shimmer. I absolutely adore how beautiful is the peachy pink glow of this blush.
In the picture below, I also did a comparison swatch between Illamasqua Sophie and Hussy. They are quite similar in color, but hussy has more color pigments compared to Sophie.
Overall, I think Illamasqua blushes are worth every cents I have paid. I bought this for £ 18 in the UK which is approximately SGD36 (based on current exchange rate) and the quality is superb. I love the shade and I love the glow this blush provides.
I really can’t wait till Illamasqua opened their first counter in Singapore very soon!
Here are some other Illamasqua products I have reviewed previously:
I’d like to know what you think of Illamasqua blushes if you have tried it before. Any thoughts?
Thank you for reading!
