I was really excited to receive my first ever Illamasqua order. It’s a brand I’ve been meaning to try for so long as it gets such rave reviews from bloggers and make-up artists. I’m also obsessed with the images they share on their Facebook page, some of the looks are amazeballs, really artistic and inspiring.
A while back they had a 50% off offer on their site to celebrate reaching a milestone on Twitter. So I grabbed the opportunity to buy a blusher, eye palette and nail polish. The Illamasqua website is so easy to use. They have great swatches and videos to show you the colour so you won’t get a horrible shock when your post arrives. The blusher I ordered was this lovely called Tremble.
It’s a lovely peachy coral colour. It’s like my favourite Coralista by Benefit but with no shimmer, this blush is entirely matte. The texture of the powder is so baby soft, really fine. It’s really well pigmented so it doesn’t take too much colour to get a lovely flush.
The blusher costs €21.50. Delivery to Ireland is a little pricey but you can reduce this with Parcel Motel. If you are registered with Parcel Motel you can put the Northern Ireland Parcel Motel address in when you order to get the UK shipping rate. Parcel Motel will then deliver your parcel to your chosen address in the Republic for €3.50. I learnt this little tip from Frillseeker here – thanks!
So far Illamasqua really lives up to the hype for me! Have you tried any of their products? What are your favourites?
