I'd been lusting after so many shades of the Illamasqua powder blush line for a really long time. When i finally got near a counter and managed to swatch them all, i left with the Sophie blush. Sadly, i don't have an Illamasqua counter near me (hint hint: please get one!) so i felt like a kid on christmas morning as soon as i bought it. I'd also never owned an Illamasqua product before so i was really excited to see if it lived up to my expectations.
I was so impressed with this blush, which is hard to achieve seeing as my expectations were so high after reading review after review of people raving about it. The formula is beautiful - super soft and beyond easy to blend. The pigmentation is incredible - i literally only need to touch the blush lightly with my brush to pick up enough product. The colour itself is absolutely gorgeous, a lovely coral with gold shimmer through it. It's not too shimmery that you can't wear it in the daytime though, it's a very subtle and soft glow on your cheeks which looks really healthy. They're kind of pricey at £18 but trust me, so worth it!
What do you think of the S.O.P.H.I.E blush? Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love,
