MY OPINION
I had heard Illamasqua blushes are a must-try product. So there was no stopping me during their sale. Unfortunately some other shades that I was after went out of stock quite quickly. Although I did manage to grab this widely-acclaimed Hussy which as you can see is a matte bright candy pink colour. The colour is definitely gorgeous, very flattering, very feminine, gives a perfect rosy tint and makes me glow.

Sadly for some reason there is huge problem with the quality of this blush. Maybe I got a bad piece or something since I have read only good reviews about it. For being such a high-end blush it is way too powdery, one swipe of the brush in the pan and specks fall everywhere. Since it is so pigmented I have to make sure that I keep away from my vanity or it will have pink dust all over it.

The blush as I said is richly pigmented, needs a softer hand to apply well. I also have a little difficulty blending it, it doesn't go so smooth. It does have an amazing lasting power, fading evenly during the absolute end of the day.

I got this blush for half of its actual price and no doubt the colour is indeed gorgeous. It is a bummer though that I have to really work with it to make it look beautiful since my piece sucks in quality. I love the colour but I never take this particular blush around with me knowing I can't just dab it on the go.

MY RATING

The colour of Hussy is just so amazing, unfortunately for some reason the quality of my blush really sucks. It is as powdery as you'd expect from a generic brand when it actually costs 20 bucks.
