Illamasqua Lies Cream Blush

Illamasqua Lies Cream Blush Review Highlight Swatched

Illamasqua Cream Blusher Highlighter Lies

If you remember this haul, you’ll know I bought Illamasqua’s Cream Blusher in Lies from their Leeds store. A few of you asked to see swatches and more about the product so I thought I would share my thoughts on it today!

I love Illamasqua’s Cream Blush formula, they have a dewy finish, blend amazingly, and last well even on my oily skin. Lies is a pearlescent pink with a lavender silver iridescent sheen. I apply this with the Real Techniques Contour Brush, on top of foundation, and I don’t powder on top of it. It will also blend perfectly well over powder products.

This is the most natural looking highlight I have found but it’s still dramatic enough that you can tell it’s there. Although it does look very pink in the pan but it is almost translucent on the skin. Even if Illamasqua is a brand that your not normally attracted to I don’t think anyone could fault this product.

If you have any of Illamasqua’s Cream Blushes, you need this highlighter, I wear it with Sob and they blend together amazingly, and create the most beautiful dewy pink cheek. I’m actually tempted to get some more of Illamasqua’s Cream Blushes to pair with this!

Illamasqua Cream Blush in Lies is available from Illamasqua’s Website (link) and Debenhams (link) and costs £16.50


  1. This looks really pretty and natural, but very glowy as well. I'm sure it would look gorgeous applied :)

  2. Looks like a lovely product, possibly a bit pale for my tastes though! xo
