Despite the fact that I was able to resist the Illamasqua sale a month or so ago for some reason I was incapable to hold back when they offered free Liquid Metals with purchases over a certain amount...and of course I felt it was essential to order an excessive amount.
First off is Nymph, which is a gorgeous pale bubblegum baby pink. This is a first for me, I'm usually a peachy pink blush kinda gal, but I'd been after MAC's Well Dressed but thought I'd try this instead. Comparing the two in terms of price makes me sound like a bit of a fool, Nymph set me back £16.50 (from Illamasqua online) for 4.5g, whereas Well Dressed comes in at £17.50 but you get an extra 1.5g. I'm not too worried though as blushes tend to last me a long time, so fingers crossed the same can be said for Nymph.
It's a beautifully pigmented blush that feels like silk when you swatch it. I've noticed that Illamasqua blushes do throw up a quite a bit of powder when you swirl your brush in them, and I've got to admit that this does annoy me. I hate messy products and I also hate waste...grrr!! I'm sure this wouldn't bug most people but hey, it's my blush and I'll cry over it if I want to haha.
I've not worn it yet but as soon as I do I'll update this post or include it in a FOTD (something I've only done once before I think!)
What are your favourite tones of blusher? Are you a candy pink, a peach, or a bright magenta kind of gal?
