Illamasqua Cream Blush in Brazen £18.00.

Not one for the wallflowers among you, Illamasqua's Brazen is a bright red with the teeniest tiniest pink undertone which only seems to be picked up in photos. In 'real life' it appears to be a true red, despite it's brownish tinges in the picture on Illamasqua's site.
The consistency of this is lovely, as is the case with all of Illamasqua's cream based products. Brazen is thick, and gives a finish that I'd describe as Satin. It's sort of glowy but then matte at the same time. It's a tricky one to explain but it is ever so lovely, and it doesn't budge. I swatched this for pictures and it stuck around for two days despite showers and multiple hand washes. It had faded, of course, but there was still an obvious trace of the colour. It would make sense then, that it is weather resistant- yes I'm talking about you crazy hot-sticky sun!
Not only do I love this as a blusher, it's also gorgeous as a lipstick and I love wearing the two together, it makes me feel like Snow White, minus the black hair of course. 
I can see me getting a lot of use out of this in the winter months too, I'm sure it'll look gorgeous on paler skin!
