Current Favourite Product.....Cream Blusher!

In particular the Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude

I'm currently obsessed with this blush, I love the warm coral pinky colour, the gorgeous sheen it gives and the sleek black packaging.

The finish is much glossier than say a NARS or MAC cream blush and for me it feels a little lighter on the skin. It's pretty wet and slippy in feel so I tent to use a natural bristled brush so I don't pick up to much product. The colour is a sheer glow which gives the appearance of a highlighted cheek bone with the colour wash on the cheek area.

Great for super fair skins right through to tanned skins, will also look great on darker skins but will just be more of a sheeny glossy highlight with a little less colour.

The colour is one that I'm always drawn to, especially in the make up world, it's a modern take on the ever so popular pinks and suits every single skin tone and hair colour. It's great as a lip colour also, much more flattering than these mauve pinks lots of women wear.

These three here are similar, you could also mix a few together. Top one is Barry M's Peachy Pink, then MAC Costa Chic and MAC Vegas Volt

I found a few items in my kit that are similar shades, just so you get a feel for the colour.

MAC O-J Pencil

MAC Pigment in Neo-orange (pro product)

Lancome Eye Shadow (Discontinued)

Stila Convertible Colour in Lilium

Cream blushers always look great in the sun (....unless you have oily skin)
Great for the summer with a super bright lip and a large hat.

The only downfall with the Illamasqua product is - The shade name rubs off the back!
