Illamasqua Blush in Lover

I made my very first Illamasqua order last week by picking up a few bits in their sale and one of those items was this powder blush in the shade, Lover. Their sales are renowned for the incredible discounts so I couldn't resist taking the opportunity to finally try the brand.

I don't usually buy make up online without seeing the product first or at least reading reviews or looking at swatches but this just jumped out at me and for £7.50, I had to have it. I didn't realise this blusher was called Lover until it arrived and the name made me love it that little bit more. 

Lover is a soft, matte finish in a warm peach shade, highly pigmented and blends like a dream. I've only used this dry for an every day look for work and it's safe to say I've fallen head over heels for this blush. I can't wait to have a play around with this for a night out.

You need just a little bit on a brush to work onto your cheeks for a slightly 'flushed' look. But you can work this up easily if you want a bit more colour. It also has a lovely vanilla scent. Another bonus is its longevity as after a hectic day at work this is still in the same place I put it in the morning!

I've been playing around with blushes the last few months, switching from cream to powder then back to cream and so on. But this little beauty has put me firmly back on powder. I will definitely be looking into more Illamasqua powders in the future for sure and currently have my eye on Nymph.

Have you used any Illamasqua blushes? What would you recommend?
