Illamasqua Tweak Blush Review & Swatches

A couple of months back i had popped into Illamasqua on Beak Street and was lured to the blushers. I ended up purchasing a few products and couldn't resist the blusher in Tweak.

The packaging is sleek and classy, i just wished they had a mirror on the lid! It's easy to open and sturdy and doesn't look like it will break, unlike several of my MAC blushes :(

This blusher is a darker pinkier coral shade. The pigmentation is superb and you only need the smallest amount. It gives a natural flushed look to my cheeks and it is one of those shades that looks incredible on darker, olive skins. To be honest anyone can wear this shade, as long as you apply it with a light hand.

Now i have a problem that my blusher is the first to disappear from my face, however this blush stays put on my cheeks! It blends just like butter and is silky smooth to apply to the cheeks and there is no powdery residue left over.

Top: Heavily swatched. Bottom: Blended

I would recommend applying it with a MAC 187, tap the excess off and then lightly stiple on the colour. Apply with a very light hand, as it's easy to apply too much product.

I will definitely be bringing this blusher to wear as my summer colour :) Have any of you used Illamasqua blushers?

  1. That's a gorgeous shade! Reminds me of one I recently picked up from Cargo, hugely discounted. It seems like Cargo's full sized blushes are massive. I'll have to check the gram weight compared to all my others. Haven't yet tried Illamasqua products as they don't seem to be readily available here.
