Illamasqua Blush Up Brush: £28.50


My first Illasmasqua product. I have been eyeing this up for a very long time and couldn’t bare part £28.50 but something must have suddenly changed my mind. Seeing this on blogs, I instantly knew that I wanted to use this for one purpose only, contouring.

I have only used this with powdered bronzers so I cannot really comment on how this works with cream products. Due to its brush density and softness, it can pick up a lot of excess product. You will just need a light hand when applying any powders to the brush or just tap away the excess. On application, it will give a soft, natural look with the blending and buffing capability, given if a light hand was used. I am also able to use this brush to build up the colour more if needed.

I actually find this easy to use to contour my cheeks, easier than angle brushes because of it’s short, flat, synthetic bristles giving me more control. I am able to fit this into the hollows of my cheeks easily to create a more precise, structured look as well as along the temples and the jaw with the use of swift swipes. I haven’t noticed any shedding from the first wash.

I totally wish I had purchased this a while ago. It fits me perfectly as other brushes tend to be a tad big for the hollows and small face in general. Even though it’s not cheap, it’s definitely worth investing. A unique, sleek, elegant looking brush too. An instant favourite in terms of design.

Have you tried any brushes like this before?

    Great review! I love Illamasqua cheek products, though I have yet to try their brushes. I'm really sad that it is now very difficult to get a hold of their products here in the states. =(

    Right now I use the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to contour. I was thinking about getting the NARS Ita brush but it's way too expensive… This one looks like it would do a great job as well!

    it is a tad expensive but if it does the job well for you, that's great!

    It's a pretty brush, but I don't use brushes a lot. =)

    never see the brush short like that..
    but i think thats more useful for contouring or shading..

  13. Arian Yupangco says:

    I don't contour much, but I think this would be much better and easier to use compared to a lot of other similar brushes out there, especially since it's so compact and quite narrow. Other brushes are too fluffy and wide!

  14. Zubaida Rasool says:

    This brush is looking really good but very pricey.

    I've always been a massive fan of illamasqua. I've never got round to trying their brushes though. I might have to now. I hardly apply powders to my face but I'll be looking up their brush range now.

    Happy New Year!
