Illamasqua Naked Rose Blush

I have long heard about Illamasqua’s awesome blushes and managed to purchase one during one of their online sale. I chose the shade Naked Rose after seeing the swatches online. If I remember correctly, I paid about S$28 including shipping.

The packaging looks somewhat cheap looking since it is made of plastic but it feels pretty light and sturdy. Even so, I love the packaging due to its quirky design and that cute, little logo embossed in the middle. I can even see the shade instantaneously through the transparent cover.

Naked Rose is being described as a neutral beige pink shade. The blush is of matte texture and finely milled. It is extremely soft & smooth and picks up really well on my brush. The pigmentation is crazy. You don’t need too much of the blush to get a really nice flush on the cheeks.

Do you own any Illamasqua products?

One thought on “Illamasqua Naked Rose Blush

  1. It looks really pale in the pan, but the swatch is really pretty! I also love their sleek black packagaing, even though it feels kinda light (and cheap *cough*) lol

    Jacelyn: My pictures don’t do justice! Yeah plastic looks cheap but it’s really light to carry around :)
