Illamasqua cream Blusher in Promise

Described as a warm candy pink with a dewy finish. The colour looks like a bright rose pink in the pan but isn’t at all as bright when applied. The colour is really buildable so you can make the shade work for you by applying more for a brighter look. If you want a really warm shade this isn’t for you. As candy pinks go it is quite warm but like most candy pinks has a blue undertone.

The formula appears quite oily in the pan and like its almost sweating. However this doesn’t transfer when applied although the formula is quite oily in itself it looks more like a dewy glow when applied. The oily consistency makes the formula almost melt into your skin while blending making it look extremely pretty and natural without feeling greasy.


If your not a fan of the dewy look and want a bit less shine then a light dusting with powder really helps. I personally love the freshness of the finish and think its the perfect finish and shade for the summer months.

Illamasqua say:
Tease, hypnotise, use to effect. Use Cream Blusher to highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity you desire. Use over foundation for impact, or under for a captivating glow. However you apply it, be daring.




The blush stayed put for eight hours without becoming patchy or uneven like a lot of cream blushes. Also there wasn’t any sign of slipping even when worn on an extremely warm day. I love this blush and without a doubt will be buying more shades from the range. One of my favourite things is the wearability of the shade and how versatile the blusher is. from a subtle glow to bright cheeks you can achieve what ever look you want to suit your skin and occasion.


Have you tried cream blushes? What ones do you like best? Have you tried any Illamasqua blushes? Which shade shall I try next?

Lots of Love,
