When I finished up at my internship at InStyle magazine, I was kindly sent off with a bag full to the brim of unwanted goodies from their beauty cupboard. Sitting proudly at the top of my bag was this little blush, now known as my first venture into Illamasqua territory. A brand that seems to do the blogger/online beauty community rounds, I was more than excited to dip my brush into the water and try things out for myself.

'Naked Rose' is a blush from Illamasqua's Naked Strangers collection, which when I first read about on Anna's blog, seemed a strange collection to me. The collections boasts an array of natural, neutral tones with a few metallics and shimmers thrown in, and when I think of Illamasqua, I think colour colour colour! Moving aside from that, this is my current blush of choice.

Described as a colour intense, neutral beige pink, Naked Rose compliments my light olive complexion without being too intense or chalky. I find it a touch blue-toned, but I'm currently embracing *the bronzed look* anyway! The powder blush itself is very finely milled, and is highly, highly pigmented: a little bit goes a long way, and I often find myself picking up far too much on my brush. Definitely one to wear with a one-colour smokey brown eye and bright lips this summer. xo

  7. Never tried Illamasqua, but that shade of pink is just so lovely. I'm definitely tempted by those soft, romantic pinks that are more subtle and natural.
