Illamasqua Cream Blush Collection & Swatches

Morning lovelies!

As i preach my love for Illamasqua Cream blushes in a few blog posts and recommend them to everyone i know and since i have recently acquired a new one, i wanted to show you my mini collection!
♥ Illamasqua Cream Blush in 'Promise' ♥
This is the first cream blush i owned and the one i keep banging on about! It is a gorgeous, creamy barbie pink, that blends beautifully and has amazing colour pay off that lasts all day! Please excuse the dirty MAC 109 brush hairs that are left behind! I have had this forever, use it almost daily and can only just start to see the pan in the centre of the compact. I will definitely repurchase this once i ran out! 
♥ Illamasqua Cream Blush in 'Rude' ♥
This is the colour that i have been after the longest and i dont really know why it took me so long to purchase? It was on sale on ASOS a couple of weeks ago for a bargainous £12 and it would have been rude not to buy! (see what i did there?!) Although i havent used it yet, i know im going to love it! Again, it is highly pigmented, looks scarily orange in the pan but blends to a gorgeous peach. 
♥ Illamasqua Cream Blush in 'Sob' ♥
I bought this at the same time as i did promise and as you can see it has stayed unused, my reason for this? I thought it looked identical to promise and when buying couldnt chose between them! So i kept promise on the go and was going to use this after! Check the swatches below, how wrong was i?! These colours are completely different! Promise is warmer and this is cooler, cant wait to finally start wearing this! 
♥ Swatches ♥
Illamasqua cream blushes are available from the Illamasqua Website Here and retail for £16.50.

What colours, if any do you own? Im looking at Dixie next!

  4. I ordered my first ever Illamasqua blush when they were on sale on Asos too :) I did a blog post on it if you're interested :) I couldn't choose between a Hussy (powder) or Dixie (kinda wishing I bought both now) but I finally settled for Hussy! It's a lovely colour and it lasts all day :) xx

  15. I have Rude and Laid and love both of them. Scarily pigmented in the plan, they blend out beautifully, just like you said!

  24. I don't own any Illamasqua blushes but the Rude one is a really nice, bright shade. I didn't though they cost that much I thought they would be much more! I'll have to look at the website. xxx
