In keeping with the reputation of Illamasqua Powder Blushers, Naked Rose is incredibly pigmented.
Naked Rose is a beautiful, neutral, easy to wear pink, and the description provided by Illamasqua as a neutral beige-pink is dead-on accurate.
Ease of application:
Despite it’s intense pigmentation, I found Naked Rose to be less problematic to apply than my other Illamasqua Powder Blushers, purely because of the colour. Because it is so natural it really does mimic the colour of flushed skin. This helps to prevent it from looking clown-like if applied with a somewhat heavy hand.
Don’t get me wrong – all you need to do is tap your brush on the product, and you’re sorted, but you’re not going to look ridiculous if you pick up a little too much product!
This blush easily lasts on my skin all day, with no fading.
I adore the aesthetic of Illamasqua packaging, however the compacts do have a reputation for being difficult to open, and this is no exception. I find myself needing to prise it open with a fingernail – not so good for my manicure!
Anything else worth mentioning?:
It may sound strange, but I LOVE the smell of Illamasqua Powder Blusher. It’s a strange smell that reminds me of a blend of warm, creamy vanilla and play-doh.
What they say:
