Illamasqua is yet another of those brands that I have been curious about forever. No one local to me carries the line, so I ended up ordering site unseen from Sephora. From the descriptions, this isn't necessarily the first blush I would have picked out, but unfortunately Sephora seems to often be sold out of a number of the Illamasqua cream blushes. So of the colors they had in stock, I chose Dixie, which is described on the Sephora site as "warm coral pink".
As you can probably tell from the swatches, I had a hard time trying to really capture the color of this blush. In the pan, I think the description definitley holds true. It is a warm coral. However, once applied to the skin it goes on shockingly sheer and considerably pinker.
The cream blush formula does set quickly, though not to a powder finish. But it's not sticky and that's the important thing for me. As I said earlier, it does go on surprisingly sheer, but it's fairly easy to build it up. I applied the blush and easily got 9 hours of wear out of it before it faded noticeably.
Illamasqua cream blushes contian 4 grams of product and retail for $26. I got mine at Sephora.
