My First Illamasqua Purchase


Very excited to receive my first Illamasqua purchase. The Bay is still having its sale if any of you want to take advantage of the deal.





Seduce is a very rich, deep rose color. It may appear more raspberry in the pictures. It is so incredibly pigmented. I have had other brands' cream blushes but none like this. 

It looks kind of glossy in the finish but it is because I just got the blusher in the mail and it was a relatively warm day and it may have melted a tiny bit. 



It is so pigmented that you really need to use a light hand. The first picture of the swatch is just one swipe. When blended out, it is very pretty. I wore it for the first time yesterday and happy to report that it is everything I want from a cream blush. Pigmented, easy to blend and stays on my cheeks all day long. Highly recommend their cream blush if you haven't tried anything from the brand.


Here is my order: Illamasqua cream blsuher, Shiseido White Lucent Anti Dark Circle eye cream(the makeup bag with goodies behind is the Shiseido gift with purchase) and my Clarins samples.


Decent sized samples from Clarins: Extra Firming Neck cream, After Sun lotion and Extra Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream. 

Have you tried anything from Illamasqua? What is your top recommendation? I really want to take advantage of the sale at the Bay to try other products.

  5. That is so pretty! I have wanted to try this brand for some time but it isn't easy to find here so I may have to order. Love Clarins products, just reviewed their makeup base which is one of my favs!

    1. it's a great time to try the products while they are still on sale. I notice the Bay is now carrying more prestigious brands now. So exciting. They now carry Becca products too.

    1. Glad to hear you love your Illamasqua blush. Too bad you lost it. I notice the brand is having sales among a few stores. Maybe it's a great time to pick up another one :)

  7. I have yet to try Illamasqua. I thought the powder blush was too powdery when I first tested it at Sephora. But that was a long time ago and maybe it was the particular color I tried.
    I am curious about the brand nonetheless. Wish they were a little more affordable, though! ;p
