I got the Illamasqua Powder Blush in Chased during a trip to New York, right around the time the brand came out in Sephora. I’d seen a lot of beauty YouTubers talking about these blushes and I wanted one of my own. I was drawn to Chased because it looked like a cool toned pink with some purple.
The packaging is black with a clear window to see the product. The blush itself is pigmented and smooth. I just tap my brush lightly into the pan and build it up to make sure I don’t overdo it. It actually looks a bit washed out in these photos, but I didn’t want to look like a crazy clown lady at storytime.
While the quality of this is good, it’s not one that I pick up often because I’m not that crazy about the shade. I think it just doesn’t show on me in the way I envisioned. It’s a nice pink, but not that kind of purple pink I was thinking. It’s still a nice medium pink shade despite my expectations. I believe Sephora has stopped carrying the line, I checked the website to link it, but it’s no longer on the brand list.
I’ll continue to slowly chip away at it, but if I ever hit pan on this I’d be surprised.
Have you tried any Illamasqua blushes?
