Review: Illamasqua Lover Blush

This blush was on my wishlist for over a year!  I held off on buying it because I tried to get more affordable dupes.  If you've always wanted it then I think you should go get it.  It's a great blush and I definitely recommend it.  It's a gorgeous apricot shade that is so pigmented that it actually shows up on my cheeks like it looks on the pan.  I was afraid the color would turn orange because of my medium skin tone but it doesn't.
Product highlights:
  • The texture is soft, very soft.  It's a joy to apply
  • Very pigmented.  
  • It's hard for colors as light and milky as this to be both soft and pigmented, but Lover gets it right.
  • Has a matte finish.
  • Kicks up some dust when you swirl your brush in
There's nothing else I can say about this blush.  I think it comes down to color preference.  If you don't like these kinds of colors then it's not for you.  Formula-wise it's an excellent blush and I'm glad I finally got it!  An A+ blush for sure.

Thanks for reading and happy Thanksgiving to those that celebrate it!

  6. This is the second post I read today about an Illamasqua blush and if I could afford the brand I'd be stocking upon these!!! What a lovely colour. I guess I'll have to be content with my Sleek blush x3 palette in Lace for now ^^ Seriously, this looks lovely on you, pigmented but natural, if that makes sense LOL xx

  10. This is a very pretty blush on you! I LOVE Illamasqua's blush formula, it's so nice to work with. My favorite blush that I have by them is Beg, it's kind of a dustier, rosier cousin to this shade.

  14. Wow, this is absolutely gorgeous! I've been looking for a shade like this for some time and I've heard nothing but great things about Illamasqua blushes. I own Sleek Life's A Peach blush, which is similar, but I think this may still be worth the splurge :) Great review, as always!
