I picked Illamasqua Disobey blush about six months ago as I was experimenting with face contouring. The matte and somewhat natural color seems like a good fit for the task. I realized quickly that Disobey was a bit too warm and bronze for shading- it actually enhances more than hides. While I tend to dislike many of Illamasqua's other blushes (too chalky), I've found that Disobey makes for a lovely bronzer.
The color of Illamasqua Disobey looks like a natural tan after a day in the sun- not too red and not too brown. There's no shimmer and the texture is very smooth and easy to apply and blend. My swatch looks very intense. I used my finger and didn't blend, but a good brush and light application are all that's needed for a summery glow. I use it when I want some color while not competing with a strong eye look. My only gripe is Illamasqua's cheap-looking packaging. The shiny plastic has a drugstore vibe.
Bottom Line: a very nice surprise.
Illamasqua blushes ($24) are exclusive to Sephora. Available online and in select locations.
