Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Hussy: Review and Photos

Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Hussy.

Sales kill me. They really do. And the evil marketers know it!

I picked up Illamasqua Hussy at Hudson's Bay a few weeks ago at their Illamasqua clear-out sale. The brand is pulling out of North America (*sob*), so I figured then was a good time to nab Hussy, an incredibly smooth, pigmented, matte shade of pinky peach. It's a warmer colour, but it works on my cool-toned skin.

I recommend a light hand and a sparser brush—something like the Real Techniques blush brush. Just a tap or two in the pan is all you need, then blend, blend blend. The colour lasts all day!

Illamasqua Blusher in Hussy swatched. This is one pass!

See how nice and natural the flush is?

The verdict: If you don't mind pigment that packs a wallop (requiring a bit more care with application), you can't beat Illamasqua blushers.

Rating: Four and a half stars out of five. I'd like slightly more compact packaging, but that's my only complaint.

Available: Alas, if you're in North America, you'll need to go to

Have you tried any of Illamasqua's blushers? What do you think?
