Illamasqua Dixie & Rude Cream Blushes

I can never have enough of Illamasqua.. It's a brand that I reckon by far beats MAC blushes and lipsticks..

Dixie and Rude are new to my blush collection.. But I have fallen in love with them instantly...


- Creamy but light formula.. Almost emollient like
- Very easy to blend
- Very pigmented as all their blushes are so you'll only need a little bit
- No shimmer
- Gives a beautiful dewy look to your cheeks
- Lasts all day
- Makes a great base for other powder blushes by intensifying any poorly pigmented powder blushes

How I Apply It

- I dab my MAC 188 brush on the product and blend away at the my cheeks

Who Will Enjoy This?

- Anyone who is looking for a long lasting cream blush
- Anyone who likes a dewy yet not overly dewy look
- Anyone who is looking for a cream base for their powder blushes

Who Won't Enjoy This?

- Those who aren't really into cream blushes

My Final Thoughts: Amazing amazing products.. My favourite cream blushes by far.. And I can see this lasting me a long time..

Would I Re-Purchase? Hell to the Yah!

Are you a fan of cream blushes?
Have you tried any Illamasqua Cream Blushes?

I haven't tried any Illamasqua products, but these cream blushes look lovely! I bet they really do give you a nice, dewy glow on the checks. ^^

Roxanne said...

@Jadegrrrl - Sob is nice.. But I'm soo into corals and peaches these days =P

@tiffyama - They dooo! You should try them.. They're so lovely!

Emily said...

Rude looks so good - I am looking for peachy cheek colours and I can't wait to get my hands on one of these!

Rachy said...

I lurveee these blushes, I bought promise the other day (pink) because I was trying to be god and not buy any more corals, but after seeing this post I want them!! x

JC ♔ said...

Both Dixie and Rude are lovely colors. Personally I can't wear cream blushes, even a small amount, because they oil me up/break me out, but if I could I would buy these in a heartbeat.

Illamasqua is a great brand from what I've been hearing. I'm a big MAC & NARS blush fan and have been eyeing these, and Tarte's blushes for a few months now.

Great post!

Christine Iversen said...

These look really pretty. I haven't tried anything from their line before :)

Love Christine ♥

Delyteful Speaks said...

@Emily - Oh Rude it s true peach! Lover goes very well with it too..

@Rachy - Haha sorry? =P Promise look lovely but I can't get enough of peaches and corals =P

@JC - Ohhh that's too bad.. I can't wait to get my hands on Tarte Blushes too!

@Christine Iversen - Illamsqua has some amazing prodicts to offer.. Def worth checking out ;)

@Lauren Rose - Me too! I love Dixie.. It's the perfect coral cream blush

I LOVE Coral Blushes!! Thanks for the review.

I think you'd also like Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for lips and cheeks in Cabo Coral.

Adele said...

Clare said...

I am a fan of cream blushes. Love them for the apples of the cheeks to create a dewy, minimal m/u look. Havne't tried Illamasqua, but would certainly like to. Great swatches as usual:)

Beauty By Krystal said...

I have yet to try out this brand, but I hear so many great things about their quality - I might have to add cream blushes to my wishlist this year! :)

Danielle said...

OOh, looks like I'm going to have try Dixie! Rude is a great blush, I really like it. I am so glad you did comps because again, like with Sable, I wanted to know how the two compared! Totally worth having both :)

Tiffany said...

I've always wanted Rude blush! They both look gorgeous, although I wonder if the formula may be a bit too creamy/oily for my oily skin :-/

Tracy@Beauty Reflections said...

NEED THESE. NOW. Who's the enabler now, huh? :)

Delyteful Speaks said...

@Kayla - Illamasqua cream blushes are my fav!

@Makeupbythess - You gotta have it!!

@OBSESSIONS to LIVE FOR - They're great for the summer ;)

@Jamilla Camel - I have the BB pot rouge in Blushing Rose.. They don't sell Cabo Coral or Calypso here =(

@kelleys - Being a blush addict like moi you NEED to have these girl! =p

@Adele - They do.. Very light yet long-lasting

@Clare - Ya you're right.. Thanks sweets

@Beauty By Krystal - Illamasqua is amazing.. They have amazing products to offer

@Danielle - Absolutely!! Dixie is very different from Rude.. I love it more to be honest

@Tiffany - It's very light-weight.. Not that thick kinda formula

@Tracy@Beauty Reflections - hahaha me? =P

glitterdoll97 said...

I love the colour of the one called Rude, so pretty for summer!

Eden-Avalon said...

Hate to be a sheep but I have to agree, Rude is stunnnnnnnning. I love it! I also really like the fact that they don't have shimmmer. Being that i'm headed to law school, I can't get enough of beautiful colors with no shimmer.
