Review of Illamasqua Cream in Betray by Tamira
I am ELATED! I'm elated because I got this gorgeous blush for FREE from the Illamasqua site (with free shipping) as part of their Christmas promotion. I would have NEVER chosen this color on my own (I tend to avoid mauves, pinks, reds, etc.), but I am so glad I have it in my makeup bag now!
This looks GORGEOUS on and gives me such a healthy glow when applied to the apples of the cheek with a light hand. I think this color is amazing and better suited for darker girls as applying it to pale skin without it being too heavy/dark could be difficult. I am an NC42/43 with VERY strong yellow undertones and this is so beautiful and natural on but can even be too dark for me if I over apply.
The formula is fab and it seems to last for hours without re-applying. I am sold! I just wish they had a few warm colors that were this deep (the warms are all super pale). I would snatch these up in multiples in a heartbeat even at this price (they have sales often), if I thought another color would work, but with no Illamasqua counter within hours, I won't know until I get to London next year to play - and what fun that will be!
