Illamasqua blushes - Sin & Thrust

I've acquired two more lovely shades to add to my sacred blush collection - and best of all they were technically 'free' as they were bought with funds from my blog sale (See? I've done really well with this 'makeup ban' since I got back from NY!)

I was checking out blog posts on my dashboard last Sunday when I noticed Gossmakeupartist had added more items to his blog sale. I was quick enough off the mark to bag Illamasqua Sin and Thrust and am even happier now that they're in my possession.
Both are brand new, and I bought them both for £12 inc postage! BARGAIN! One blush costs £16 - you do the maths!

I've wanted Sin since I swatched it at the Illasmasqua bloggers event and Thrust is a shade that I'd typically go for so I snapped them up (they were sold as a pair) and they arrived yesterday morning. I barely had time to take a look at them yesterday but I've just had a play and wanted to share as these shades look great on darker skintones.

They're not as shocking on the flesh as they look in the pan and have a silky finish that distributes colour evenly which you can gently build up that won't end up looking garish - great for daytime. Because the colour can be built up gradually I see no reason why these shades wouldn't compliment pale skintones either.

I can't wait to get my hands on the other Illamasqua blushes I want...but I'm not allowed to buy them until next year!

I love the justification there!!! Plus they were an absolute bargain!!

The blushes from Illamasqua look so much better quality than the eyeshadows!


Paula said...

Parisa said...

Wow! I always had the misconception that purple toned blushers would make your face look bruised so to speak, but these look absolutely gorgeous, and so wearable. They look super pigmented too, I bet you look amazing with them on, great post :)

I've got the Illamasqua Libido blusher which is the first of their products I've tried. I love it to bits and have pretty much neglected my other blushers so I can only imagine how exciting it must be to have bagged 2 at such a bargain... Lovely colours too!
