Illamasqua Powder Blush Tweak: Review, Swatches


Hi All,

Today I’ll be reviewing my other gem of a blush from Illamasqua. Off late, I’d been getting so bored of the usual Pink blushes and decided to try something different. Hence, I zeroed in on Thrust and Tweak after mooning over the Illamasqua site and Rash helped me get them. And Boy! Are these a gorgeous lot! If you recall, Thrust was a Grape purple shade whereas this blush called Tweak is the total opposite…Don’t you think?illamasqua tweak blush review+ illamasqua blush

My take on the Illamasqua Powder Blush in Tweak:

  • Color: This shade is described as a deep hot pink, matt finish blush. I’ve never had a Hot Pink powder blush before and I’m really stoked to get this. The shade is an out of the world Hot Pink and the closest I’ve ever come to using a shade like this was NYX cream blush in glow and MUFE Lipstick No.37.illamasqua tweak blush review+ illamasqua+ blush review
  • Price:  16.50 poundsillamasqua tweak blush review+ illamasqua
  • Quantity:  4.5gillamasqua tweak blush review+ illamasqua tweak
  • Pigmentation & Texture:The blush is completely matte yet feels like velvet on my fingers. It blend easily and it’s probably easier than putting icing on a cake! illamasqua tweak blush review+ illamasqua hot pink blush
  • Staying Power: This blush is super bright and stay on my cheeks for about 6hrs easily. Even when it starts fading, it leaves a hot pink stain on the cheeks 🙂illamasqua tweak powder blush review+ illamasqua


My guess-work purchases are sometimes a Hit and sometimes a total an utter miss (like the Tips n Toes blush in Pinker) but this one is a total winner. Somehow I just feel more  confident when I wear this and I feel like I automatically stand straighter….sounds too loony na? But I ain’t crazy..this truly work magic and tends to bring out the diva in me. I’m never shying away from Hot Pink blushes again!
