Illamasqua Pulse Illumine Oil
Illamasqua Pulse Illumine Oil

Go Golden Bronze!

Illamasqua Pulse Illumine Oil (£32.00 for 100ml) is a quick-drying, fast-absorbing golden bronze shimmer-sheen oil. This is an excellent product to use on legs and shoulders for an extra glow on a night out on the town. A little goes a long way, and I love that it dries down and still gives off that soft sheen but doesn’t feel oily or slick. The shimmer is subtle that it doesn’t look like you’ve bathed in body glitter, and it’s as natural as shimmer is ever going to look. There seems to be a very subtle coconutty scent, but it’s barely there and doesn’t linger for more than a few minutes on me.

If you want to know more about how products are evaluated, read out Rating System FAQ! :)

  • Product: 28/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: If you love glowy, slightly sunkissed legs, I think you’d love Pulse. It’s not going to be a self-tanner or bronzer, but it is going to accentuate your natural tan and skin tone.

    Does anyone know how this compares to the Body Glow from NARS?

    This looks very similar to the bronze liquid that came in the MAC to the Beach collection. How does it compare Christine?

  3. Hi Christine !! I love your blog I think I’ve said that before lol but it dont hurt to say it again! I was wondering if you had ever used BM 100% Natural lipglosses before? Or if you have done any lip swatches I would like to try them but im not sure yet I searched for them on your blog but didn’t find anything xxxxxxxxx
