I was very excited to receive some pieces from Illamasqua’s I’mperfection Collection in the post this weekend. The idea behind the collection is that, rather than hiding our imperfections – we should work with them and show them off – be proud and say “I’m perfection”!
The spring line up has 3 new powder blusher duos – I was sent Beg & Bronzerella. To be honest, when I first opened it up and saw the colours I wondered what on earth it would look like on – these are almost the opposite of the blush colours I would normally choose for myself.
Beg is a matt, dusky pink colour, with Bronzerella being a frosted coppery bronze colour – both of them are extremely highly pigmented – the swatches above are taken after just one swipe of my fingers across the pan then on the back of my hand.
My initial thoughts were that Bronzerella was a little scary to wear as a blush, but looked a lovely colour for the eyes – so I decided to use it as an eyeshadow, while using Beg as blush. I know I don’t look very happy in the photo – but I am, promise!
I was a little wary of how Aunt Sally I may end up looking with this powerful blusher, so I made sure I used a large, soft brush to apply Beg to my cheeks – it leaves a flushed finish which is very buildable if you wanted to go more over the top with it than I have.
Curiosity got the better of me, so today I have tried the products the other way round!
