Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak Review and Swatches

My apologies to Francois Nars, but if I were to make a blush called "Orgasm" it would look like this:

Just a pure, healthy flush with no glitter or shimmer in sight. Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak ($24) is a warm reddish-pink that livens up your face with a bright natural glow. 

Illamasqua is a popular British brand that just recently hit the United States. Sold exclusively at Sephora, Illamasqua encourages customers to express themselves through bright, dramatic makeup. Many of the brand's products look intimidating in the pan but can still be used to create a natural look.

Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak is a perfect example.

Wow, this blush looks intense!

Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak is a matte formula blush with tons of pigment. It looks like too much for everyday wear, but an appropriate application technique is all you need to make Tweak look perfect.

Blending is key with this blush. Gently dab your blush brush in the pan and tap off the excess. Then, apply it to the apples of your cheeks and blend like hell!

One dab of Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak is enough for a gorgeous, long-lasting flush. On me, the pretty pink-red color makes me look like I just spent an hour in the sun.

Bottom Line: Despite its intimidating appearance, Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak creates a healthy, naturally-flushed look that works on a variety of skin tones. Just make sure you practice blending so that you don't overdo it!

  1. The only thing I've seen from Illamasqua in the Sephora I can get to is nail polish... Nice bright springy colour!

    1. Yeah, I ordered this online so I'm not sure how much Illamasqua they stock in my closest Sephora either. I totally love this blush though -- it's grown on me even more after I wrote the review.
