Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo Beg & Bronzerella and Blush Up Brush – Review & swatches

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 Sara Hassan , 26 Comments

The idea behind the I’mPerfection collection is indeed the only one of its kind. I absolutely enjoyed the campaign imagery and it has truly inspired me a lot! We all have imperfections that often make us lose self-confidence but by the end of day, our imperfections are what make us unique and define our individuality.

Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo
Featuring two beautiful matt Powder Blusher shades, Beg (Dusky Rose) and Bronzerella (Copper Bronze), the new Powder Blusher Duo, a first for Illamasqua, comes in a gorgeous compact with a mirror. Illamasqua Powder Blushers are highly pigmented, use them to shade, brighten, enhance and contour. Be bold; be daring and most importantly be the center of attention this party season.

Blush Up Brush
Challenging conventional blusher application, Illamasqua's all-new Blush Up Brush has an innovative, ellipse shaped head, designed to tuck directly under the cheekbone. Creating a soft diffusion of colour up onto the cheekbone, combine the Blush Up Brush with your favourite Powder Blusher Duo shades for a look that defines, elongates and slims the face in one simple movement.

My thoughts
The blusher duo contains two bold and beautiful colors; Beg is described as a Dusky Rose Pink and Bronzerella as a Copper Bronze on the website. You may already know that Beg is a part of the permanent line while Bronzerella is a new shade. Both colors are uber-pigmented and have the usual soft texture that blends like a dream. I find Beg to be very pretty and wearable. On the other hand, I wish Bronzerella were matte. Not that I mind the fine golden shimmer it has, it's only because I prefer using a matte bronzer over a shimmer one. That being said, I think it makes a gorgeous copper eyeshadow. I suggest using a light hand to apply both colors for you can easily go overboard with these shades ending up looking terrible. In my opinion, this duo would suit any skin tone -- depends on how you apply. For a detailed review on Illamasqua blusher, click here.

I am so glad to have tried the new Blush Up Brush. It’s very dense and feels extremely soft and luxurious against the skin. The bristle density really helps with buffing and blending the product. Not to mention, the flat shape helps achieve precise application hence making it a good contouring brush. If you’re someone like me who likes creating a perfect gradient of bronzer and blusher, you would really enjoy this a lot.

Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo Beg & Bronzerella comes with a price tag of £40.00 and Blush Up Brush is priced £28.50. To purchase, visit the website. Illamasqua ships worldwide. Join Illamasqua on Facebook to stay updated about discounts.

  14. Bronzerella can also work as a great copper eyeshade, and the brush looks amazing for precise contouring. I'm totally into matte bronzers too though, great post!:) xx

  15. Love the shades... I love illamasqua blushes in general.. But I wouldn't use that bronzer to contour.. I'd probably use it as an eye shadow like u suggested or a blush..

    1. Hey Shehrzad! I'm not wearing anything on my eye. Yes, you're right. You need to keep a very light hand with pigmented blushers. :) xx
