I’ve received this blush as a gift from my dear friend right before Christmas, somewhere in the month of November I think.
Illamasqua describes Naked Rose as a neutral beige pink colour, which is somewhat true. Imagine a pale pink colour and you will get Naked Rose, don’t be fooled by the adjectives soft and pale, because this blush is pigmented as are the rest of the Illamasqua blushes. Like all the Illamasqua blushes that I have Naked Rose is a little pigment in a box, it’s wonderful to apply and you don’t need much to get a nice colour payoff.
It can be nicely buildable without looking like you have too much of it, but I mostly apply it like all of the other Illamasqua blushes that I have – lightly. Somehow I like that look the most, because I reach for this blush when I have a bright/vivid lipstick on that rules the entire makeup look.
I think this blush can be worn by all, regardless of the undertone, and given that it is buildable even women with darker complexions can wear it.
Lately, I really like this type of neutral blushes, somehow they appear fresh on the skin or my skin with them looks fresh, one or the other.
Naked Rose has a matte finish and finely milled texture.
You get 4,5 grams of product and it will cost you around 24 euros.
Pictures (they aren’t exactly tip top that is because they where taken when I received the blush, but the swatches are ”new”):
I’ve forgot to take a swatch on my hand, I will add it tomorrow in the post and I will put swatches of the similar blushes that I have.
Do you like these type of soft and neutral blushes?
