Illamasqua Cream Blush in Laid

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 22 - 2010

One of my purchases from last week includes an addition to my steadily growing Illamasqua Cream Blush family!

Illasmasqua Cream Blusher in Laid is a beautiful pink that leans toward the berry family… cool toned… almost raspberry-ish.

I love the Illamasqua Cream Blush formula…. it’s all melty, thin and beautifully blendable.  It never clumps or drags on application and despite being heavily pigmented, it’s forgiving in clumsy hands like mine.

I have VexInTheCity to thank for this purchase… I’m such a sheep.  She bought one and I didn’t want to be left out.   You’re not supposed to covet thy neighbours blushes are you?  Or something like that….

On the left is 2 swipes and on the right shows the blush blended.  What other Illamasqua Cream Blushers do you guys recommend?  I already have Sob and Rude…

Oh.. one last thing!  These blushes last SO well on me considering their cream formula… easily 6-8 hours before showing signs of fading.  Though I will say that this is on normal/combo skin.

Illamasqua Cream Blush in Laid is priced at £16 and available from counters nationwide or online.

  1. The wonderful thing about being a night owl is that I’m always awake when you post, therefore I am usually one of the first commenters. Actually that’s kind of sad.

    Anyway, I HIGHLY recommend Promise Cream Blusher, which is a light neutral pink very similar to Nymph Powder Blusher. I’ve worn it in several FOTDs and swatched it here…

  2. Oh and thanks for making me want Laid. We don’t get this in the US so I’ll have to pay extortionate shipping charges from the Illamasqua site. Harumph.

  3. I only have Rude, since I mostly use powder blushers (and I have quite a few from Illamasqua) but this one looks so pretty! I’m waiting for the new collection to arrive to place an order, so I’m putting this on my wish list :)

    Copycat! I bought it first *sticks tongue out*

    This is so lovely – want to see it on your cheeks missy! 😀

  7. Ahhhh so pretty! I’m usually wary of cream blushes but this one blends out beautifully
