Illamasqua Beg Blush



This is one of them brands that I’m just not sure about. I have tried pretty much something out of all their categories. The foundation I’m allergic to and the eyeshadows I really like. And everything other product either falls into love or hate, there is no in-between with me.

As you may know by now that the first makeup course I did was an Illamasqua one, so me and all the girls had full kits by them. Everyone else in the group I found were like myself, definitely all or nothing. So, then somebody emailed me and asked if I could do a review on the Illamasqua Blush in the colour Beg. Luckily I already had this in my collection so I am more than happy to review it.

I find this Beg Blush to be extremely highly pigmented. All you have to do is lightly dip your brush and there would be more than enough for your face, I would even suggest tapping excess of your brush because the colour payoff is so much.

A little of this product also goes a really long way. It goes hand in hand with it being so pigmented but because only a tiny amount is needed, I would be surprised to hit pan on this. I also find the packaging really nice on the Illamasqua range of Blushes. Personally, I think that the packaging is nicer than MAC packaging. The design of it is so elegant and modern and makes any makeup collection look pretty.

I also find the consistency of this product to be nice and creamy. If you put your finger in this powder and swatch some on the back of your hand it feels more like a powder to crème texture more than just a powder.

However, one thing I have noticed about this that there is so much fall out with it. If I lightly tap my brush into the pan really gently, the amount that comes off the brush is crazy. Also, it makes loads of like Blush dust in the pan which can’t be used so you just have to blow it away, which wastes the product.

Again, this point matches up with the previous one, the product doesn’t seem to stick to the brush very well. I have tried this with previous brushes to see what works best and in the end I used a MAC angled blush brush, then blended the product into my skin using a clean MAC 187. But the blusher just doesn’t seem to stay on the brush very well. As everybody does you tap the excess of your brush so you don’t go overboard, all of the product seems to go when I do that with this product.

When this product does go onto the face I find that it’s quite hard to blend. I think it is because it’s quite a hard and solid consistency when it is in the pan. So, when it is on the face I do struggle with it, I find with a Duo Fibre 187 it does help.

  1. Oh no what a shame that it's hard to blend. I have a couple of their blushes - Katie and Lover and they're both OK, but I guess they're paler in comparison which might explain why xx

  2. The shade looks beautiful, too bad it does not stick to the brush and it is difficult to blend.

  5. This looks like such a pretty everyday shade, it's a shame it doesn't blend out well - strangely I find blushes with a powdery formula apply pretty well for me haha
