Illamasqua Blush Duo2..

Hello my lovelies, im finally enjoying a day off at home in which im sure im going to be blogging all day, because i can yay :)

Another product from my new love Illamasqua, i finally converted to this brand (as you know if you read my blog) a few weeks ago and so glad i did!

I visited the Selfridges on Oxford Street and wandered into the beauty hall, straight to the Illamasqua stand, i saw this instantly as ive been wanting a new blush that was really light baby pink, i had looked at Mac's 'Well Dressed' until i saw this for £26 which meant i got two products for £7 more than the Mac blush, and i actually preferred the colour's in this:

Isnt it beautiful ahhh!

The two colours according to the sales assistant are 2 of the most popular selling blushes from there original blush line, so you were getting a lot for you money when you think of the cost of purchasing the two seperately!
Katie is such a lovely colour, its a soft candy pink, you really only need a light dusting of this on your brush as the blush is so pigmented.

Ambition reminds me of Nars 'Orgasm' blush, its a beautiful pinky/corally colour with flecks of gold glitter running through it, when applying this again you only need a tiny amount, which is so good as you know the product will last you a long time, when i first saw them in the pan i didnt think you got alot of product, until i swatched them and realised the pigmentation was as good as it is :D

Overall i'm super pleased i brought this as they are exactly the two colours i had been searching for, for such a long time and i finally have the perfect everyday blushes!

Have any of you seen this pallete, would did you think of it and other Illamasqua blushes?

Follow my blog if you want to guys, finally getting my followers up yay :)

Lots of love

  9. this is such a pretty duo! i love colors like katie because they're unexpectedly gorgeous on the face. i usually wouldn't go for such light colors, but i feel like it'd be the same sort of deal as benefit dandelion which i thought would be too light but is actually really flattering (:

  14. Great review. I'd love to try Illamasqua make-up but I find their packaging really bulky. Love the pigment of both blushes, will definitely give this a little tester next time I'm in.

  15. Ooh these look pretty although the lighter of the 2 shades would probably be too pale for my skintone. I am yet to try anything from Illamasqua but I've heard nothing but good things :)
