Illamasqua Supernatural Gleam Cream Review, Photos, Swatches

Illamasqua Supernatural Gleam Cream
Illamasqua Supernatural Gleam Cream

Illamasqua Supernatural Gleam Cream ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is described as a “bronze.” It’s a medium, coppery-bronze with copper, gold, and bronze pearl. It has warm undertones and leans slightly orange, from the coppery tones. Urban Decay Baked is more golden, less copper. Urban Decay Gilded is yellower. Tom Ford Blush Guilt is much sheerer/lighter. Tom Ford Bronzed Amber is browner, less coppery. See comparison swatches here.

Gleam Cream is supposed to feel lightweight, highlight with “iridescent pearlescent pigments,” and can be used alone or with foundation. Supernatural adds a warm, coppery glow wherever it is applied. It does add some color on my medium complexion, so I see it certainly adding color to lighter skin tones and still adding some noticeable warmth and bronzing to medium-dark skin tones.

It has a shimmered, lightly frosted finish, and depending on how sheered out you apply it, it can emphasize pores. Very lightly applied, it did not emphasize pores (think stippling brush, blended out so it adds mostly warmth without adding color). The consistency is thin, creamy, and it applies and blends out easily as a result. It takes a few minutes to set (somewhat), but it never fully sets so it always had a dewy sheen. I have normal-to-dry skin, and it lasted well on me (I was surprised!) for a full eight hours and only started to look a bit patchy after nine hours.

Gosh Christine, you’ve just had amazing luck with products looking great on you! This and now Burberry’s Pink Cameo lipgloss? Stunning. I would love to try Illamasqua’s Gleams but not Supernatural. It wouldn’t look so “supernatural” on me, more like UNnatural. 😛

I want this just for the name. I’m sure Sam and Dean would approve…

But seriously though, gorgeous color! Cream face products always look the most natural on me. I might pick it up. Thanks for the review!
