Illamasqua Blush Swatches and First Impressions: Lover, Excite, Panic

     As I said in my last haul post, I've swatched and gotten a good idea of the Illasmaqua blushes I ordered. I have Lover, Excite, and Panic, here are product photos and swatches.

(Lover) Concentrated, Diffused

(Excite) Concentrated, Diffused

(Panic) Concentrated, Diffused

     These Illamasqua blushes are really nice quality blushes. (Please be aware that I am doing a first impressions review). Lover is a lighter matte peachy apricot color which is probably the most wearable and one that is harder to overdue. Excite is a bright matte corally-orange. Panic is a bright matte cherry red. The product photos make Excite lighter than it actually is and Panic brighter than it actually is. They blended well on my arm, although it is definitely easy to overdo them because of the high pigmentation. The blushes were smooth, but not powdery. The packaging is pretty nice, very sleek, and very cool. Oh! They kind of smell like cinnamon, especially Panic. I can't say too much because I haven't really tried them enough.

     The blushes run pretty expensive at $24 each, but I justify it because the packaging is nice, the quality is good, you get quite a bit of product, and really...they're so pigmented that you aren't going to use that much each time. I recommend Lover for those who don't want to take on Excite or Panic. But if you think about it, Excite and Panic will look really good with a clean face and minimal makeup; just for a pop of color. Orange cheeks are in this Spring! I'm sure that if you blended well, the blushes will turn out very normal.

     I hope the swatches and quick review was helpful!

Thanks for reading. Byebye. *_*
