Illamasqua S.O.P.H.I.E: review and swatches

illamasqua sophie2Illamasqua ‘Sophie’ powder blush

Illamasqua further reduced prices of items on sale and I broke down and got the S.O.P.H.I.E powder blusher (hereafter ‘Sophie’). Described as ‘golden coral shimmer’, on me it is decidedly pink.

I blew on my blush and tapped away the glitter, so you don’t see any in the photo.Yes, it is possible to do away with the glitter, should that be your preference. The lasting power is quite acceptable, although that is the case for most blushes on me. Sophie is powdery, even more so than other Illamasqua powder blushes I’ve tried.
