Illamasqua: Zygomatic Cream Blush
Zygomatic has been on my wish list for quite some time now. I think Illamasqua makes the best cream blushes on the market, and I love their formulation. Every time Sephora has a VIB sale I always think “Hey! I need to pick up that one blush with the crazy name.”
Speaking of crazy names, do you even know what zygomatic means? It’s the scientific name of the cheekbone. I learned this in the Human Anatomy class I took in college (which we dissected a cadaver, but that’s a story for another day).
Anyway, this cream blush is unlike any other blush (cream or powder) that I own. The color is a muted pink beige that is actually really flattering on the skin. Unfortunately for me, the tan I picked up in Hawaii doesn’t allow this blush to show up as nice, but I know I’ll be getting tons of use from this color once I return to my normal pale self.
Believe the hype; Zygomatic is a beautiful cream blush in a very unique shade that warrants its place in any makeup junkie’s collection. And if you’re a biology nerd like me, you should just get it for the name.
Do you own any Illamasqua blushes? If so, which is your favorite?
