Unlocking the Vault: Illamasqua Laid

I thought I'd showcase my latest blush purchase - Illamasqua Laid. I fell in love with this bright rose pink cream blush months ago, after an impromptu swatching session at my nearest Illamasqua counter, in Selfridges. I finally bought it a couple of weeks ago and here it is.


I like the texture of Illamasqua's cream blushes, they blend easily, and less is certainly more as they're quite pigmented. So far I've used both my MAC 187 and 131 brushes to apply this but I think I'm gonna see how I get on with my fingers next time. This is my third Illamasqua cream blush purchase (although I've since sold one) and the quality has been consistent with all three.

I'm so jealous of your profile (that's what they call the side of your face yeah? haha!)

that blush is amazing on you. the type of blush you could wear every day and look great every single time (but then you would be neglecting the rest of your blushes!)

Looks so nice on your skin colour. I am so happy illamasqua blushes are pigmented without having a white base because i get so irritated with milky blushes that look like whiteout under flash lighting!!

VexintheCity said...

@Mehak - Definitely experiment with blush shades if you have a deeper skin tone, you can pull off almost any shade.

@Beauty Addict - Thank you and yep, you do!

@Get Gawjus - Thank you x

@ellamarie84 - Thank you, that'll be the foundation, you should see me first thing in the morning!

@Miryam - Thank you :-)

@Em - LOL I hate my profile! Hence why I take about 70 pics to get one shot - argh! Cheers hon x

That looks beautiful! I love Illamasqua blushers, both powder and creme.

Sweetcheeks said...

That really looks stunning on you, one of my faves on yours, I have seen so far (in your masses of blushers lol)

Lisa said...

Lovely colour, it looks beautiful on you! I have a few of their powder blushes but currently only have two of the cream ones - Sob and Promise. Both fab colours but I wish I'd gone for a different colour family now rather than getting two pinks! I want to try Rude next but really don't need another blusher at this moment in time! xx

SilhouetteScreams said...

Ohhh so pretty <3 is there a blush colour you dont suit?

tina_mbc said...

That's just gorgeous!!! You can definitely pull off a huge variety of blush shades, even the ones that would scare me look stunning on you!!!
