Illamasqua is fast becoming one of my favourite make up brands, and with a slogan like “make up for your alter ego” you would expect nothing less than amazing products. Well Illamasqua’s powder blush in Lover is exactly that… AMAZING! It seriously ticks all the boxes – colour, pigmentation, texture and staying powder.
Illamasqua describes Lover as a “vibrant apricot” which I would agree is what it looks like in the pan. Once swiped on the cheeks though, magic happens. You get a fresh, flawless coral glow without even trying. It’s almost like “my cheeks, but better”… way, way better! Lover is perfect on those days where you can’t be bothered to think. You just know this will look fabulous with anything and everything, but it’s especially lovely when paired with a dark eye.
The pigmentation of their products is definitely one of Illamasqua’s strong suits. Just one light swipe of Lover and I’m good to go. The texture is amazing too, so delicate and smooth that it blends like a dream. It is matte finish but not at all chalky or powdery, and it pretty much lasts all day. I’m totally in love with Lover!
