Illamasqua Naked Strangers: Blushers in Naked Rose and Zygomatic


Illamasqua are a brand that I used to just go to for dramatic make up for nights out, but lately the quality of the products makes me gravitate to a lot of their products for day to day wear.

When I saw the Naked Strangers Collection the blushes really stood out to me, both look very wearable, and as with all the other products I have tried from them the textures are gorgeous. When ordering a few buts from their sale, I added these two Blushers to my basket to avoid paying shipping (why pay postage when you can buy more make up?) and am so happy I did!


Naked Rose is one of the matte powder blushers and looks like a neutral brown pink in the pan, but on the skin it is definitely more pink. It looks really natural on the skin, and really brings some life into my complexion with out shouting and screaming that I'm wearing blush. It's what I would describe as a Little Black Dress of the make up world, it looks great with anything, anytime of year. I doubt That it will leave my make up bag for a long time!

Zygomatic is one of Illamasqua's Cream Blusher, the formula of which I have already declared my love for (reviews here) and again in the pan it looks like a warm brown and nothing to spectacular. It has the same dewy finish as the other Illamasqua Cream Blushes I have tried and is a great alternative to a shimmery powder blush. Zygomatic is a nude apricot on my skin and again is great for everyday wear.

The packaging of both blushes is the typical Illamasqua pinched style, which I love, and is sturdy enough to be kept in a handbag.

Illamasqua are one of my favourite brands for blush, the quality well exceeds MAC in my opinion and the shade range is great.

Illamasqua Blushes retail at £16.50 andd can be found on counters and online here
