Two first’s for me this morning, my first Illamasqua product and my first Butter London polish!
I have been wanting to try both these brands for a while now, so I took the plunge the other day and picked up Rude cream blush from Illamasqua, which I have seen on so many blogs and wanted to try, and No More Waity, Katie from Butter, which is the limited edition colour they produced for the Royal Wedding a few months ago.
I had actually thought I had missed out on this polish, and was duly gutted but then I spotted it on the Debenhams website! It is definitely on the pricier side for a nail polish at £15, but they use the 3 Free formula, no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP, and this one is limited edition so I didn’t mind paying for a little bit of history!
I have been contemplating Illamasqua’s cream blushers for a while now, mainly after seeing them on Jennie’s blog (www.sailorjennie.com) and I decided to go for Rude as my first one as I am loving orangey/peachey/coral colours on my cheeks at the moment. All the ones I have in these shades are cream to powder formulations and I was after something a bit creamier so I thought ‘hey what the heck I shall give it a go!’ and I already LOVE it! The price is around the same as for a MAC blusher, at £16.50 for 4g (MAC charge £17 for 5.6g) which I think is a good price point for a blusher, so that too helped me decide.
I have no doubt both of these will be popping up in my favourite videos at some point soon!
