Review : Illamasqua Theatre Of the Nameless 'Ambition' Blusher

Tuesday, 15 November 2011

When i took my trip to Cardiff (that was so long ago now!), Charli and I went on a little shopping trip into the city centre. I don't think either of us had set out on a mission to spend money, just to have a browse around, check out some makeup counters swatch a few bits etc. In the end we ended up having our makeup done at the Illamasqua counter in Debenhams.

After having my face 'made up' The lovely Charlotte wrote down all the items she used, now I am not made of money so I just picked 2 bits up, firstly it was the new skin base foundation which I will review soon, and secondly the new blusher from the Theatre of the Nameless collection in 'Ambition'(Currently sold out on the Illamasqua website. However it is in stock on ASOS and you can get an extra 10% off with a NUS Extra card!)

This blush wouldn't have been one of the items I would instantly reach for as in the pan it looked quite a dark pink (twell for me it looks dark!) and I didnt think it would suit my skin colouring. However when Charlotte put it across my cheeks I thought it looked lovely! I was instantly sold! The blush has gold glitter running through it, now I am not one to shy away from a bit of glitter, its not a bad thing in my opinion, its just with some products theres too much packed in so you end up looking like a discoball if you arent careful! However Ambition has just the right amount of glitter to give you a nice looking glow on your cheeks, as well as a hint of pink colour.

The colour is really easy to build up, so you could go for a subtle glow if you use a light hand or be a bit more heavy handed for a more daring brighter look.

Have you bought anything from the Theatre of the nameless range? There's a lot of lovely products! If I could I would have a bit of a spending spree on the  Illamasqua website!
