Oh Hussy, where have you been all my life?
This is a review that is really past due, i ordered this blush in the Illamasqua 50% off sale... Yeah, that long ago! But for a little while it sat unloved in my "box of things that need testing" and I'd wrongfully looked over it for a little while. Well not anymore!
Hussy is probably my favourite blush so far this year and yep, that is quite a big statement for me. I've had a few Illamasqua blushes in the past but opted for crazier shades so they don't get the love they deserve, but me and Hussy are now firm besties, she'll be getting a lot o' love from now on.
Hussy is a gorgeous matte candy bright pink and I'm officially in love. Its a little bold for something I'd normally reach for but I've been learning not to so heavy handed and its working beautifully for me. I like to apply the smallest amount at a time, blend, then build up at the intensity i want. I've always been a shimmer kinda gal when it comes to blush but lately I've found myself growing fond of mattes, i find it more flattering and then i get to make good use of my highlighter collection...
Illamasqua blushes are priced at £18 for 4.5g of product, which shocked me a little considering how large the pans are. But despite the average product size all the blushes I've tried pack a serious punch in the pigmentation department, so they will last a long, long time! They have a generous pro discount of 40% for MUA's and other industry professionals and also often run discount promotions, so keep an eye out on the website, Twitter and Facebook pages.
If you're a fan of pink you're gunna love this little beauty!
You can find it in store or on the Illamasqua website.
