The Baked Blusher formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and have a “natural soft effect” with a “hint of shimmer.” It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but the texture was fairly smooth, lightly dusty as you might expect from a baked formula but still blendable. (Mine appears a little dustier than it actually is, due to it arriving broken.) It had much less sheen applied to the skin, and it’s hard to say why; I expected it to look near-metallic, but it was more natural and luminous once blended in. This shade wore well for six and a half hours before fading slightly. This would work better for someone who doesn’t want intense color payoff and isn’t overly concerned about longevity.
Oh, and they aren’t the sturdiest of blushes–one arrived from Ulta dislodged from the base (the other shades I ordered arrived fine).
