5 Star Review: Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Excite (Vivid Apricot)

"Human Fundamentalism is an explosion of your alter ego. It's becoming who you are and not who you're told to be. Because beauty isn't conformity, but the fundamental human desire to express your inner self on the outside." ~ Illamasqua
Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Excite
Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Excite is the brightest colour intensive blush I have at the moment! The vivid apricot colour is highly pigmented and can be applied to almost any skin colour or skin tone. It has a matt finish. Just as much as I love adding colour to my wardrobe, and what I love most about Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Excite is just how lively your face when you use the vivid apricot colour making your cheeks that much rosier!

When you place the Illamasqua Powder Blusher lid flat, it pushes up the base of the blush on a really lovely short angle. The colour is absolutely beautiful, bright, full of the warmth of summer and spring.

The Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Excite swipe your blush brush lightly across the compact, you will find a generous amount of powder will go onto your brush, tap gently for the excess to fall off.  Apply with a light hand and blend generously for the perfect "just been blushing" look. If you continue to build up the blush for a more dramatic look, it will be lively, loud and attention grabbing. Depending on how intense you wish to apply Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Excite, the colour can be built with up to five shade variations.

The pictures in the swatch photo don't do this blusher justice!! It is absolutely a brilliant go to blusher, absolutely perfect for those people who want just the right gorgeous, cute, amount of pinky peach colour, it is highly pigmented, highly blendable and highly buildable ~ What more could you ask for?

If you add water to your blusher brush, then use Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Excite you will have a bolder colour which can be doubled up as an eyeshadow. Although it is a blusher, you can also use it to define your face contours, shading and add more definition to your face.
