Illamasqua Powder Blushers Colllection - Panic, Hussy, Nymph, Thrust, Lover and Tremble

First and foremost, HAPPY 4th BIRTHDAY ILLAMASQUA!!

Today's post is dedicated to my collection of Illamasqua powder blushers. Illamasqua's powder blushers are definitely one of my favourite products from this amazing brand, majority of them are matte which is great for my combination skin. The blushers are extremely pigmented and just such beautiful colours! Just love them! I know some people might find them a bit too powdery but with the right brush and a good light hand, you really can't go wrong!

All together I've got 7 of them - all matte. However, today's post only consists of 6 because my most recent one - Naked Rose (from there Naked Strangers collection) - is so gorgeous that it has a post all to itself, click here if you'd like to see!

1) Panic - A true bright red

2) Hussy - Bright coral pink

3) Nymph - Light pink with blue undertones

 4) Thrust - Deep magenta pink

5) Lover - Yellow-toned peach 

6) Tremble - Soft warm pink

My first two Illamasqua blushers, believe it or not, were actually Panic and Thrust... extremely bold colours but I thought Illamasqua is a bold brand so why not start off with the most bold colours. Now to be honest, I don't wear these two colours that often because they are slightly harder for me to wear on a daily basis because of how bright it is but I do like having it in my collection. I think the bright bold blushers from Illamasqua with look amazing on dark skintones. My favourite from this bunch is definitely Lover, it's the perfect matte peach colour for my skintone and it's just really easy to wear and pair with any look. These retail for £18 (I think Illamasqua have increased the price because I believe when I bought these they were £16) at Selfridges and on the Illamasqua website.
Definitely worth checking out! :)
