Towards the end of last year, I purchased the new ELF baked blushes. I first got the know of them through itsjudytime. She did a review and I was very excited to get my hands on them and to try it out.
“Baked” makeup products are very trendy right now. More and more makeup companies are coming out with different kinds of baked cosmetics, from eyeshadows to blushes and bronzers. What are “baked” makeup anyway?
Normal panned cosmetic products are made from milled powder ingredients that are pressed into the pan. Baked makeup, however, are liquids that have been baked into solid powders. This makes it look somewhat like marble. Baked products are thus much more pigmented (less talc), and more blendable. Most baked makeup products can be used either wet or dry.
So anyway, back to the ELF baked blushes, I must say I was very impressed! ELF products are generally much more inexpensive, and the quality has always been good. I purchased 3 different colours of the baked blushes.
Firstly, the texture of the blushes are very good. It is vey pigmented, and also very blendable. I was very impressed with the colour payoff. Though I have to say that Peachy Cheeky and Passion Pink looks almost similar. The pinks and browns mix together to form a brilliant coral colour. Pinktastic on the other hand seems too light to be an actual blush, but it makes a beautiful highlighter that you could use on your cheekbones.
My only complain would be the fact that the blushes might be a bit too shimmery. It does give you a nice healthy glow, but for those girls with very oily faces, it might look a little too slick.
Overall, I love the blushes, and I wish they had more colours! I highly recommend this line of blush. For the price, I think it is a great product and good for everyday use.
