E.L.F. Baked Blush

I always find myself drawn to baked products because I think they look so beautiful in the pan.  This obsession was what led me to purchase two baked blushes from E.L.F.  The shades I selected are Peachy Cheeky and Rich Rose and they really are very pretty, marbled powders.

Peachy Cheeky and Rich Rose

These blushes feel quite dry and hard to the touch and you will need to really rub your brush in the pan to pick up the product.  Both blushes have a lovely glow, which is nice but the shades just don’t quite work for me.

Peachy Cheeky

Peachy Cheeky is very light in tone.  In fact, this is more in the basket of being a highlighter, even on my fair skin.  You could certainly use this as a blush topper but I have to be honest, I never reach for it in this capacity.  This is a pretty colour, but it lacks pigmentation.

Rich Rose

Rich Rose is a darker colour, but the pigmentation is such that you can certainly pile it on even if you are fair.  I don’t though, as I feel like the tone of this blush makes my skin look a little bit bruised.

Overall, these are very average sorts of products for me.  They aren’t terrible, but they aren’t anything special either and I have much nicer blushes in my collection so I never reach for these.  I wouldn’t purchase them again, but they are very budget-friendly so if either colour intrigues you, there isn’t much to lose in giving them a go.

If you are looking for a lovely baked blush, I prefer the ones that I have from Makeup Revolution and you can see the review for them here.  The Blushing Hearts, Triple Baked Blushes from I Heart Makeup are also lovely and you can see swatches of them here.

Have a glorious day!
