Illamasqua Hussy and Lover Blush Duo

As you will have noticed from my previous blog posts this month, Illamasqua are playing a huge part in my daily make up routine. I use their wonder products ensure I have perfectly defined eyebrows and I am also having a love affair with their Hussy blusher. And I must admit that I just love the name of it too! The Illamasqua Hussy and Lover Blush Duo, £26 is the perfect matte compact to keep in your make up bag.

Lover is a matte soft apricot colour and Hussy is a matt Barbie pink. Mixed together, a gorgeous peach pink shade can be created. As with all Illamasqua products, the pigmentation is incredible so only a tiny bit of product is needed to give a wonderful colour payoff. One of the things I love about Illamasqua blushers is that they are so soft and blendable. As they are so pigmented, if you do pick up slightly too much colour, they product is so workable that you can really buff it into the skin for a natural look or work it up into a more high fashion look. I like to use the Blush Up Brush for this, to create really contoured cheekbones.


Although the duo compact will last me for a long time, I had no hesitation in picking up a single blush in Hussy in the Illamasqua sale for £7.50, just for back up purposes of course.

I also like to pair the Illamasqua Lover and Hussy Duo with my Illamasqua Sculpting Duo, for beautifully contoured cheeks. The pop of colour alongside the sculpting duo creates such a beautiful look, and one that I use daily.

I think I am a bit in love with Illamasqua products! Have you tried any? Which are your favourites?
