illamasqua Cream Blusher Promise - Review

Throughout the past few months , i have become obsessed with cream blushers, to my horror i wasnt able to find any in Lahore, So i placed nyx cream blusher order( i ordered 5 of them) on may 10th ,as my post birthday present, I haven't received them,*sighs* i know nothing new i assume another lost package.
Anyways imagine my joy when i laid my eyes on this beauty last week and i was jumping and dancing*literally* around the house.Thank You illamasqua  

What it is?

illamasqua Cream Blusher

Tease, hypnotise, use to effect. Highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with
fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity you desire. Use over foundation for impact, or under for a captivating glow. However you apply it, be daring

 What does it Do:

Illamasqua Cream Blusher is an incredibly versatile product that can be used on cheeks and lips.
Baby doll kinda pink,as site describes Warm candy pink, dewy finish

Price: £16.00

*Swatched Lightly with no base and in natural light *

To my horror when i got my illamasqua package few days earlier, Promise was melting , and i felt like crying, i panicked and i ran here and there,Then i relaxed, took a deep breath and  i immediately put in in my fridge, it did lost the shape but Yayee , its still useable.
  It's a really pretty pretty baby pink blusher, i own no shade like this one. It really perks up my complexion and looks really natural. Blushes and lipsticks don't tend to last on me well  but it lasts a really long time.It has a Very creamy texture. O-M-G, its so pigmented you really need you only need a tiny-est amount, and it spreads like a dream.This can be used to give a really natural look, or baby doll kinda look, or built up to a really lovely dramatic look. It has a dewy finish, so  no need for highlighter, its gives a healthy shine instead of being oily. It gives me such amazing healthy glow. It looks so gorgeous if worn alone or layered. I loved the fact its creamy and without the shimmer.I think this might actually be my most favorite blush ever. At £16, they're not cheap but are most definitely worth it as you need to small amount , and it will last you long.
Applied on the apples of cheeks

*sorry for the lack of eye & face makeup, i was too excited to try anything else, i mean its blush review after all *

Now i know what all the hype was , This is one brand I can honestly say, lives up to the all  hype.

I can't wait to get my hands on the other Illamasqua blushes I Seduce(Warm rose pink, dewy finish) , Dixie (Warm coral pink, dewy finish) and Rude (Warm peach pink, dewy finish
..but keeping in mind the number of lost packages, i might wait until my brother goes to U.K.

Do you own any of the illamasqua  products? If so, what are your thoughts? I would love to know!
