Illamasqua Cream Blushers in Seduce and Dixie

Seduce, Dixie
Natural lighting, flash

I've only ever tried a nail polish from Illamasqua, and that was because I had an ASOS voucher. The products are more expensive than the amount I'm willing to pay for cosmetics. However, Illamasqua recently had a sale, and I couldn't refuse! I've heard plenty of good things about their cream blushes, so decided to buy Seduce and Dixie (after hours of looking at swatches and reviews!). They're normally £18, but were in the sale for £7.50. There was also a 10% off code floating around, so I ended up paying just £6.75 for each blush. Delivery is free, and I also got 56p cash back on each one - Result! I was intrigued by these because the formula looked similar to my beloved NYX ones; creamy and pigmented. Every other cream blush I've tried has been quite hard to touch, and requires warming up with your fingers before use. This means they're difficult to use with a stippling brush. Thankfully, these are like my NYX ones. They're not quite as creamy, however, but still impressive. On Illamasqua's website, Seduce is described as a warm, rose pink, and Dixie is described as a warm, coral pink. 'Raspberry' and 'coral' would be my descriptions. In the swatches above, I've swiped them with my finger, and then stippled them on so you can see how subtle and natural they can be.

Did you buy anything from the Illamasqua sale? Roll on the next, I say!

  4. I also got Dixie in the Illamasqua sale and I really like it so far! Before the sale I hadn't tried anything from Illamasqua at all, so I went a little crazy and bought a lot!

  8. I already have the blush duo with Katie and Ambition and when the sale launched I wanted to grab a couple more blushes to try but I resisted for a while and then most of them went out of stock. Just before the sale finished they came back into stock again so I finally caved and decided to go for the powder blush in Hussy and I also picked up Seduce. I've worn Hussy for the past two days and am completely in love with it. I can't wait to try Seduce now x
