A product I have be absolutely loving lately is Illamasqua powder blush in the shade 'Excite'. I know from the pictures above it looks pretty scary but with a light touch this blush is lovely.
Illamasqua describe it as a vivid apricot with a matte finish, which is pretty much exact. I actually quite like the fact it's a matte finish because I think a shimmer would be too much for this colour.
You can probably tell from the pictures that this blush is extremely pigmented and all you need is a really light hand. I find it's best to use a stippling brush with this blush as you get a little bit of colour you can build rather than a whole lot that you can't take off. I really love the way this blush blends and it looks great with a shimmery eye look. I'm also really fond of the Illamasqua packaging, it's really sturdy and sleek.
I think this would suit medium/darker skin tones as I feel it might be a little too much for the paler girls but if you love the look of it I'd definitely recommend trying it out. They also have another one similar called 'lover' but I believe it's a little more coral. This blush retails in Australia for $42.00 but Myer is currently selling it for $33.60 and you can get it here I actually bought this in America from Sephora for $24.00. I know it seems pretty steep for a blush but considering you only need to use the smallest amount due to the pigmentation, so it's going to last a really long time.
What do you think of this blush? Can anyone recommend me some more Illamasqua blush shades?
