Illamasqua Powder Blush Duo No. 2 *



A little while ago I received the amazing Illamasqua Powder Blush Duo to test out, and I have been loving it! This is an extremely belated review, as I have been enjoying using it so much!

The Illamasqua Powder Blush Duo is part of the beautiful I'mperfection collection.


The Illamasqua Powder Blush Duo features two gorgeous powder blushes, Katie and Ambition.

Katie is a gorgeous light matte pink, while Ambition is a richer shimmer rose colour. This is a fantastic mixture of colours, featuring matte and shimmer, with colours on either end of the pink spectrum - perfect for a duo. This duo also features a small mirror, so perfect for travelling or keeping in your handbag!


As usual with Illamasqua, the quality of the blushes are amazing. The colours are really rich and pigmented, and have very long lasting power. The colours are also really easy to blend, with very little fall-out.



Katie & Ambition
Katie is a little on the lighter side (but can be built up to ridiculous proportions to make you look akin to a barbie doll) whereas Ambition is already super pigmented with no real need to be built up for a strong look, yet can be blended for a softer finish.

Katie is one of my favourites to use as it's a very cute and girly colour, and perfect for a day-time look. I love using Ambition for a stronger look in the evenings.

Overall, this has to be one of my favourite products from Illamasqau so far. I love the idea of putting two blushes together, especially two so different. The Illamasqua Powder Blush Duo costs £26 which calculates to about $40AU; but will set you back only $39AU from an Illamasqua counter in Myer or online here. Some may find this price a little steep for a blush duo, but I think it's fairly reasonable. (A single blush costing $28.)

Have you tried the Illamasqau Powder Blush Duo yet? If so, what did you think? What other Illamasqua blushes have you tried?

This product was provided for consideration.

  3. Illamasqua blushers are the BEST! I've been eyeing this duo for a while now, but I still haven't purchased it as I have so many other blushes in my collection at the moment! You're so lucky to have received this one for review! x

  7. Illamasqua blushes are just absolutely gorgeous! I have the shade Ambition which is similar to NARS Orgasm but a lot prettier!
