Illamasqua SOPHIE Powder Blush // Review

Illasmasqua Sophie Blush £18.00

SOPHIE is described by Illamasqua as a golden coral shimmer, and I'd say they're pretty spot on. There is a visible golden shimmer in the pan, and thankfully this creates a subtle glow on application, rather than the dreaded glitter fest. It actually seems to transfer onto my skin as a very bright, coral pink with a lovely warming effect

This is probably the most pigmented blush I've ever tried - Just a touch of the brush collects more than enough product, and its so easy to apply too much of this if you're not used to the heavy pigments of Illamasqua. This is a good feature really though, I can't ever imagine getting to the end of this blush, even if I used it every day for a year! 
Definitely a big thumbs up from me! 

Have you tried any of the Illamasqua blushers?

  2. Oooh I totally get what you mean with the shimmers instead of glitters - can't stand glitters in face makeup!

  3. Never tried anything from Illamasqua! But this looks fab on you. Reminds me of NARS Orgasm but with less glitter!
