Elf Baked blush in Rich rose Review, Swatches and Photos
Hey “BD beauties”!
Feel like it’s been ages since I wrote a review post since I haven’t been trying new products. Today I’m coming with a review of an elf product that looks cute but in terms of performance not so much. Comes in following shades: Peachy cheeky, Pinktastic, Passion pink and rich rose
What does ELF say about this product?
The soft and shimmering color of our Baked Blush creates a natural healthy glow. Baked in an oven, these blushes offer rich pigmentation for a beautiful effect. The long-lasting formula provides a gorgeous, smooth and even application. Infused with active key ingredients Jojoba, Rose, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape to nourish and hydrate the skin. Apply this shimmering color dry for sheer pigmentation, or use a damp brush or sponge for a more vibrant effect.
My experience with this product
I was sucked into this product because of the simple but cute packaging. I just feel like anything domed and baked is freaking cute! Who else thinks that way? The packaging is pretty simple too and doesn’t look extremely cheap. The shade ‘rich rose’ is a bronzy shade with slight marbelization of rosey shades in it such that when you swirl your brush and apply the finish is slightly rosey.
The problem is that it’s not pigmented enough to bring out color. I feel like the pigmentation is limited to an application that looks more of a highlighter. This would make a settle highlighter for medium to dark complexions but not as a blush.
The packaging is simple with the studio packaging it usually has. Storing can be a hassle because of the irregular dome shape. The product doesn’t last too long on the skin too. Probably about a maximum wear time of 3 hours. If you looking into buying this for the purpose of using as blush I recommend you not to since it obviously won’t deliver what you expect.
Have you tied ELF baked blushes? Do you share my opinion?
