I don't know why nobody loves their package! I find it stylish and expensive looking. Plus it has a big nice mirror. I hate when I pay a lot and get the product in a cardboard box. Just hate it! I have this one in the duo. I would never buy this color but decided to give it a try because I thought it would be too dark for my skin (SB no. 6; Bourjois 52, Guerlain 01). And boy how I was wrong! Perfect darkish rose! I am happy to have it in the duo as the colors are perfect for contour + blush (bronzerella for cheek comtour and eyeshadow; beg as blush). Recommend, would buy it again, lasts all day, highly pigmented. The only downside is that when you swipe it with a brush ( I use RT) it ends kind of messy: it crumbles. The powder is spread in the whole compact which makes the mirror and the compact itself dirty. Just bear in mind, I heard you have to be careful (musn't fall) as the blush gets easily broken.

I love this! right off the bat I want to say that this color is the in between of NARS Dolce Vita blush and Nars Amour blush.
It's lighter than Dolce Vita, not as brown and It's a tad more dusky than Amour.
Overall pay off is excellent and you dont look burned if you over apply like it tends to happen with many brown-pinks
Lovely my cheeks but better color on my NC-25-30 skin!

So, I knew I could expect pigmented but wow. One dab per cheek is all I need. A swipe would be overboard. This is right up there with the pigmentation and staying power of tarte natural beauty and nars Taj Mahal, which are hands down the best blushes I know. The colour I will admit is nothing unique. It's lovely, don't get me wrong, but it is a regular medium rose pink with slightly plummy-brown undertones. I like this bc it's is quite natural. Blendability is easy bc it is so finely milled. This has now become my staple everyday blush when I don't want the shimmer of my other standard pink: MAC Warm Soul. Would repurchase but I now own so many ridiculously pigmented blushes that I could go years without needing another. No qualms with packaging; the beveled plastic cover is quite interesting in my opinion.

On me beg pulls more of a plummy colour it is the perfect hint of colour that looks natural it gives me a beautiful autumnal flush.
Again Illamasqua do not disappoint this blush is finely milled highly pigmented and matte. I think nars could learn from Illamasqua. I also love their packaging.

I loved the color in the pan, the packaging and the finish. It is very pigmented and the texture is lovely, but it didn't look good on me. I'm NW30. I wore it a few times and it did nothing for me so I swapped it. Hopefully, it is making someone else luminous and gorgeous.

I purchased this several months ago, during Sephora's friends & family sale. The Sephora locations in my area do not carry Illamasqua, so I pretty much had to rely on reviews and photos online of their products. Initially, I wanted to try Lover, but it was out of stock at the time. I chose this color (Beg), based on swatches I found online. I wasn't sure if it would look good on me because it looked slightly darker in the pan than I expected... but it really is a nice rosy color on my cheeks. A little bit goes a long way, and it looks like a natural flush. It is a wonderful product, excellent quality (despite the cheap'ish packaging)... I'm definitely going to buy more of these blushes in other colors!

Beg is a soft rose color that looks pinky-peach on the skin. It looks darker on the pan, but once applied with a light hand, it will give you a nice natural flush. It makes my complexion more alive. Looks great with smokey eyes and bare or pale lips. Can also use on the high part of your cheekbones. Definitely one of my favorite blushes!

Yes this is a beautiful blush! I have tried many blushes in this color family but Beg beats them all! there is no other color like it, is a rosy dust color almost looks deepened plum, and its silky smooth yet dense, so you get a very nice blend when you swipe your brush back and forth, many blushes leave streaks or blotchy marks on your cheeks especially if its highly pigmented, which Beg is very pigmented, but this one is smooth to the application without separation of color. It will leave you amazed! I will be purchasing Illamasqua blushes from now on.

Omg.. I don't usually write reviews but had to for this product. I bought this online without swatching it, hoping that it would be a good shade for me. The next day I saw it at the city Myer (Yes - Illamasqua has finally come to Sydney!) and was dismayed. It was surrounded by really pretty pinks that I was hoping was BEG, but when I found the actual product it was such a dusky, dark pink that I just assumed would be wayyy too dark for my NC20 skin. But when the product finally arrived I was blown away. Now I have around 25 odd blushes and am quite a blush junkie, but this beats all of them by far - including Chanel's Orchid Rose and Benefit's Coralista. This is the most beautiful blush I have ever tried - it is the most pigmented (even lightly touching my blush brush onto the product is enough for my cheek), lasts all day (much longer than Chanels Orchid Rose), is not too shimmery (unlike Benefit's Coralista) and most importantly the shade is just perfect. It actually isn't as dark as I had feared - it's a darkish rosey pink that is just so pigmented that it looks hideously dark int he pan. If you blend it out well on the cheeks it gives a beautiful natural flush. As for the packaging - flimsy and quite hard to open, but I am not too picky with that sort of thing.
I highly recommend this product. I am now completely sold for Illamasqua's blushes.

This blush is lovely and its sooooooooo pigmented! Its the best quality blush I have EVER used and if MAC are not careful they will find they have really bad competition in the blush stakes!!!!
For reference I am NC35-37
It costs £16 in the UK
Website describes it as a "dusky rose pink"
Highly pigmented....you need a light hand applying this and it will last for a long time. You need to lightly swirl your brush around in the pan and then tap off the excess or else you will look like a clown, it is THAT pigmented!
Great colour play off.
Long wearing....blushes dont usually last that long on me, but this one lasted all day, longer than any MAC blush I have tried, its great
Texture is really nice, its the smoothest blush i have ever used.
Fantastic quality - its the best blush i have ever used.
No sheen/shimmer, completely matte.
Nice wide pan so its easy to handle a medium/large brush
The packaging is just average, and feels a bit cheapy compared to the price of the product. They could have tried harder to jazz it up or something, seems flimsy next to MAC or Nars for example.
Would I re-purchase: Yes, but its so pigmented and you get loads that I am unlikely to run out anytime soon!
Would I recommned: Yes, without doubt!

That's it - Illamasqua's blushes are now my favorite. I already have Hussy and love it's peachy-pinkness, and wanted to try a rosier color.
Beg is a bricky-rosy color. It's truly the most pigmented blush I've ever tried. I dab -not swirl - my 187 on it one time and that's enough for one cheek. Two dabs and it might look too strong against my light-medium skin.
This is a beautiful, everyday color for me. I'm especially loving it for fall and winter. As I mentioned above, it's exceptionally pigmented and the color lasts all day long. Really. I sometimes work 12-15 hours and I'll come home to find the blush as beautiful as it was when I left the house in the morning. I never, ever have to touch up my blush.
One more thing - Illamasqua's blushes are matte and this is no different. I like to swirl my blush brush in some Guerlain ballz and use it over Beg for a beautiful glow. It's gorgeous.
Another two thumbs up!
