Hussy definitely lives up to the hype! I recently ordered it from Sephora and I wasn't sure quite what to expect, but I LOVE it! It's a very pigmented, bright coral-pink blush which stays true to color all day and really brightens the complexion. I use a fan brush to apply and it's perfect. I haven't tried it with my Nars Yakiyo brush, but it may be too pigmented for that. The fan brush works well and then I blend even more if necessary. I really like this product for Spring and Summer. Fair skinned gals like me, don't be afraid to try this blush! It will brighten up your whole look! I would repurchase.
I have two blushes from Illamasqua, and they are really amazing. The pigmentation in the product is so intense that although I gave the price a '4' that's not really fair because it will last at least twice as long as other blushes because you have to use so little of it. This particular shade gives a vibrant pink pop to my cheeks (for ref I'm NC20). I use a fan brush and an *extremely* light hand to apply. I go for a few dips of the brush ever so lightly and slowly build the color. It is entirely too easy to go full clown if you're not careful! This shade is a nice bright spring pink color. As the days get longer and sunnier my makeup is naturally trending towards a more natural face, so I've been making bright cheeks the focus point with neutral eyes and lips. FYI this is a matte powder and blends nicely. I would absolutely recommend this shade and any of the blushes from Illamasqua. I haven't used tons of their products (eyeliner and a shadow, aside from the blush) but I would probably bet this is the best product they make based on my (limited) experience.
Received this item in a swap and can't believe I lived without it for so long. As a blush lover I have 50 plus blushes in my collection at one time, but this has to be one of my favorites second in line to my beloved MAC Sweetness. This is a matte watermelon pinky slight coral color that gives me a just got in from the cold with an extra oomph boost of healthy cheek. On it's own I look healthy and with my choice of highlighter (how fun!) I have the glow from within. Very pigmented so those who prefer a lighter flush of color will need to use a light hand. I would purchase this again and again!
Smooth, silky formula glides on effortlessly. Color is a beautiful, natural,vibrant matte pink. Lasts all day.Very very pigmented, so you only need a little bit. I apply this with my Mac 116, over my Benefit Hoola bronzer and it still shows up nicely. I see this lasting a really long time because of how little is needed. Would defiantly buy again! ( which might be a while, because it will take forever to use up what I have now :)
Stay power is good but It crack easily.. for the price I hope they could do something about the quality and mirror would be nice too..
Love this blush. It's my everyday go-to blush when I'm in a rush. Love to use it with my MAC 130.
UPDATE 9/15/12: Didn't think it was possible but I found an even better and prettier blush! Buxom True Hue in Shangri-la-la........ :)
WOW WOW WOW.......where have u been all my life!!!! This is THE perfect blush, looks bright in the pan and def can be overdone if u put too much but a little goes a loooong way and it brightens up my face like no blush ever has!! I actually exchanged my Nars Amour blush for this (I couldn't get it to work for me, it didn't go on smoothly and the shade just didn't suit me). But Hussy.......Hussy is PERFECT, it's like a rosey, candy pink color that I think would suit every skin tone! The packaging says: Illuminate, radiate, make your face come alive with the colour and drama of Illamasqua Powder Blusher. Colour-intense and highly pigmented, use it to shade, brighten, enhance and define the shape of your face. Be bold, be daring, be the centre of attention. - well that's exactly what it does!! I like the packaging, very good quality, which is expected if I'm gonna pay $25 for a blush right! IMO Illamasqua has the best blushes and I can't wait to try out more! (I'm going for either Lover or Create next!!) :))
Got this with Sephora F&F and it's as good as the hype here led me to believe. It's a yummy matte watermelony color. Something about it brightens you up like a movie poster from the 1950s. Though it looks very summery, I've been wearing it constantly this December/Jan. It's temporarily dethroned my usual standbys -- Mac Stereo Rose and Nars Desire/Exhibit A.
I've got a drawer full of mac and nars blushes, and none of them quite look like this -- definitely one to consider adding to your collection! (Yep, even if it's already an obscenely large collection like mine.) continued >>
Hussy is phenomenal. I apply it with a stippling/duo fiber brush and it transfers the perfect amount of pigment (bright pink leaning coral) and my cheeks just GLOW. It's remarkable considering that it's a non-shimmery blush. I love it and will be purchasing more from this brand!
Just purchased this blush today, before I purchased the girl applied it to my cheeks and I fell in love. Highly pigmented so u need a dab per cheek and blends like a dream! Not too expensive at £16.50, highly recommend for all skin tones!
