Illamasqua Cream Blusher - Promise



Illamasqua just owns the block when it comes to blushes.
Thanks to my wonderful friends they managed to gift me Illamasqua products that I wanted to try out.
It's my first time trying out their cream blushes and I already fell in love!
They are super creamy and with a slight dewy finish.
Since Nyx cream blushes are a bit too slippery and dewy for my taste, Illamasqua hits just the right amount of dewy-ness.
Promise is a cream blush with thin creamy (almost liquid) consistency
Longevity: It stays on my cheeks for a decent full-time job
I would recommend it for dry skin but I'm still not sure about it's performance on oily skin.



The color itself is quite interesting.
In the pan it looks vibrant warm pink yet it swatches and applies lighter and cooler.
In fact it's similar to Sob which is a light bubblegum pink.
Application is easy and buildable but I prefer to use fingers instead of stippling brushes. 
Pigmentation is outstanding even though it's a lighter/thinner consistency.


It's a perfect dewy cream blush for dry and normal skin.
Since I don't have oily skin I can't really predict how it would react but I've heard good things from experiences of other people. Illamasqua cream blushes are sold on their official website here and also on Asos for about 23€.

What's your favorite Illamasqua product? Do you have any recommendations?

  1. I'm almost ashamed to admit that I don't have a single Illamasqua product - yet. I can't quite decide if to get a nail polish or an eye shadow. Decisions, decisions :o). Xx

  5. I don't own a lot of things from Illamasqua... but the one thing that I do own and love from them is the cream blusher! I have it in the shade rude and it's perfect to layer underneath a powder blush to prevent it from fading throughout the day! =)

  6. Bodi previdna, ko enkrat začneš kupovat se težko ustaviš... jaz imam počasi že celo kolekcijo doma :D Kremne blushe imajo res ful dobre, sama ga imam v odtenku Laid in je verjetno najbolj pigmentiran produkt kar jih imam, pa še res dolgo obstane na koži. Sicer ti predlagam da sprobaš še šminke, čeprav so malo trde in težje za nanašat, se praktično ne premaknejo z ustnic ko jih enkrat namažeš, definitivno najbolj obstojne v moji kolekciji, pa barve imajo <333 ostale stvari sem pa šele dobila, tako da nimam še nekega mnenja, bojo pa kmalu na blogu :)

    1. Se že izogibam stojala- kot da ga ni. Še dobro da pojamram kaj si želim ;D
      Oh, šminke <3 Sem videla mešana mnenja in me je strah sprobati- mogoče pa bom eno v prihodnosti če ti svetuješ :) Komaj čakam še več tvojih objav!

  12. Oooh, this is SO pretty. I've been dying to try Illasmaqua blushes for ages but up until recently they haven't been readily accessible. Now that the Illamasqua counter's opened up, I can't wait to go swatching!
