Brown & Blushin': Illamasqua blush in Thrust

Well, I couldn’t just stare at Illamasqua without purchasing, could I? Granted I have no problem window shopping (story of my life, HA!) but I owe it to Clumps readers to test drive the car you may be thinking of purchasing, right? That’s what I’m here for!

Sooo, I thought long and hard about the Illa product I first wanted to review.

Blush was one of the winners, baby! Now if this doesn’t convince brown girls that we CAN wear blush, then I’m going to have to go on a traveling tour called “Listen brown girls, we can wear blush”.


Thrust is the business!

Prettyful, uh? Illamasqua describes this as “magenta” and it retails for $23. You can find out more about it here.

So I applied a generous amount on the cheeks….

And wowsers! I like it!

Blush does a body good and I’ll be visiting my Sephora again to check out some more of Illamasqua’s blushes…or powder blushers they call them.

Loves ’em!

Have you tried any of Illa’s blushes yet?

You don’t wear blush don’t you? Hmmm…..

  • SchalaKid

    The glow…the glow!!! It's beautiful; I definitely need to cop it.

    Thanks for the heads up, I don't believe I've ever heard of Illamasqua before…has it been in some deepn shady corner of Sephora stores, or is it being newly carried?

  • Tysh

    I like it, I always pass and don't buy anything, they have this nice pink nail polish I want to get. So you convince me, damn I am a sucker for makeup. LOL

    I always wear blush. That's a really pretty color. I have been debating trying Illamasqua because I already own too much makeup but that blush is sooooo tempting.

    OK I really need Illamasqua to hurry up and lan in my area. I'm loving this blush and I need those sunglasses. They are hot

    That's pretty. I need to buy a blush. I have some bronzers but no blush that I'm in love with yet. I'm still looking.

    Pretty! It's like a not as intimidating version of Nars Desire blush (which I LOOVE)
