Here’s my final Illamasqua Generation Q review, I wasn’t overly excited when I first opened this blush, I didn’t think it would be my kind of colour at all. Its a matte terracotta colour with small flecks of gold glitter within it, I was convinced that it would make me look dirty or tanned, which are neither things I would be going for!
In the daylight the Allure Powder Blusher has photographed more of a peach shade. The compact is the usual black gloss casing which is spot on brand wise but I find it picks up finger prints easily, but it’s not really a big issue. As with my other powder blushers it smells lovely of cocoa butter.
As usual the pigmentation in these blushes is incredible and it’s really easy to over do it when applying the product, so apply with a brush and very lightly buff it in to reduce overkill! I’m really pleased to say that this blush really surprised me, I actually really like the shade on me and have been reaching for it over my usual candy pink shades. I think it’s a classier option for me, here it is on my face…
On the rest of my face I’m wearing Bobbi Brown BB Cream in Extra Light, Illamasqua Lipstick in Magnetism, Lancome Star Mascara, Famous by Sue Moxley Eyeliner and Ilah Brow Powder. The Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Allure is a lovely warm shade, which I think works really well for everyday, it has a much pinker appearance on the skin than it does in the pan and I think it would work for a lot of skin tones.
What do you think of this shade?
What’s your favourite colour of blusher?
