Illamasqua intrigue powder blusher

I have wanted Illamasqua's powder blusher in intrigue for so long since i clapped eyes on it. I knew i'd love it before i'd even tried it. It's white. It's matte and it's going to look great when recreating a take on a M.A.C style black collection makeup look!

Comparison: I like to compare Illamasqua to M.A.C as i feel these two are quite evenly matched in the cosmetic race.
Availability: Illamasqua are one of very few companies, in fact, the only company i'm aware of without googling it that do a white blusher. M.A.C don't do anything similar, starting with well dressed as their lightest shade which is a soft pale pink.
Price Vs Product: All illamasqua powder blushes will give you 4.5G of product for £16. However, for the same price, Illamasqua's cream blushers will only give you 4G of product. M.A.C is better in terms of price, product and consistency as they give you 6G of product, whether it be cream or powder, for £16.50.

My Conclusion:
The illamasqua intrigue blusher is definitely a good investment if you don't mind being slightly edgy with your makeup as this product, like many of their products, is extremely pigmented. It works well as a highlighter across the tops of your cheekbones, an eyeshadow. If you use it as an eyeshadow like i do, it saves you so much money as well. You can pick up a powder eyeshadow only giving you 2G of product for £15: 1 POUND CHEAPER AND HALF THE PRODUCT!?! Recommend: Yes.
