Product Review: Illamasqua Cream Blusher in 'Dixie'

Illamasqua Cream Blusher 2

   If this is what all cream blushers are like, then - wow - I am hooked. Yes, this is my first cream blusher and, yes, I am a bit late on the scene, but I've been waiting to finish my powder blusher before moving on.

   I can admit that powder blusher is not my friend. For me, it never blends completely, so I'm always left with a huge blotch of it somewhere on my cheek. Plus, I never achieve the right amount - it's ALWAYS too much or too little, either leaving me looking like I'm a Russian Doll, or a bit ill.

   With Illamasqua's cream blusher, I picked out a shade that I thought would look nice against my skin. However, any shade of this blusher could work, as it's just so easy to blend. A small amount of product can create a sun-kissed daytime look, while a heavier application can produce a super vampy nighttime look. 'Dixie', the shade that I picked, is a light, pinky-peachy tone that I believe can suit any skin-tone as it's really versatile.

   The texture of this product is amazing! It's so smooth when used with a blusher brush, and so user-friendly to apply. I practiced applying it over liquid foundation and over powder foundation and it blends well over both, with no blotchiness or streaks, giving a smooth-textured, dewy appearance.

   It stayed on for more than twelve hours; so much longer than I was expecting! In contrast, my previous powder foundation wore off in less than half that time.
