As an Illamasqua virgin here, I was excited to try out a recent addition to my blush collection. Illamasqua's Thrust is a bright violet berry in the pan, but shows up a subtle cool and warm pink on the cheeks. It is extremely pigmented and would be best applied with a duo-fibre skunk brush, just to give off a nice rosy glow. I actually love that I dont own a single blush that looks like Thrust. Retailing at around $23 at your local Sephora, Thrust is just a touch more expensive than a MAC blush ($18) and around the same price as a NARS blush ($26). The vibrant color can be a little intimidating in the pan, but once applied (sparingly) to cheeks, Thrust is definitely creates a soft and easy matte finish. The blush leans cool but can suit warm tones nicely as well, since the magenta does carry a bit of red undertones. This blush is particularly flattering on WOC (women of color) but would look beautiful on fair and medium tones as well. Thrust is just the right amount of flirty and bold. I'm pretty excited to try more out from Illamasqua since the quality and wear time of this blush is outstanding. Illamasqua offers a pretty gorgeous range of colors to choose from as well. Bottom line? A fun and flirty quality blush! Pictured below is my FOTD using Illamasqua's Thrust. Please keep in mind that I am applying a little bit more blush than I usually wear, so you guys can get a good look at the true color and pigmentation of Thrust. Have you tried Illamasqua's Thrust?
