Makeup Revolution All I Think About is You Baked Blusher

Make Up Revolution All I Think About is You Baked Blusher
Make Up Revolution All I Think About is You Baked Blusher

Make Up Revolution All I Think About is You Baked Blusher ($5.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium, rosy plum with warmer undertones and a cooler, metallic sheen. NARS Sexual Content (Right) (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Loved Me the Best (P, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Mauve Mystique (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Bang Bang You're Dead (P, $5.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Plum Foolery (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Bridal Rose (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Burberry Silk and Bloom (LE, $68.00) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Embraced (LE, $28.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Sassy Grape (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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).

Black Opal Orchid Baked Blush

Black Opal Orchid Baked Blush

Black Opal Orchid Baked Blush ($8.95 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy plum with gold sparkle. MAC Gentle (P, $27.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Mauve Mystique (P, $34.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NARS Sexual Content (Right) (LE, ) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is described as a “luxurious powder blush” with “silky smooth application” that yields a “radiant glow” and a “delicate flush of color.” The latter seems to suggest a sheerer formulation. The texture was somewhat dry and dusty, though it was blendable on the skin, and it did not look powdery on. It had sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-sheer but not much more than that. The color is gorgeous, and the finish is soft and luminous, though there was obvious sparkle on the skin that seemed unnecessary as it is quite sparse so it doesn’t really add anything. It lasted for six and a half hours on me before fading.

Black Opal Tulip Baked Blush

Black Opal Tulip Baked Blush ($8.95 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright pop of medium-dark pink with very subtle, warmer, yellow undertones and a matte finish. Colour Pop Early Bird (DC, $8.00) is lighter (95% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Zoeva PK040 (P, ) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Bred for Beauty (LE, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). The Estee Edit Purr Pink (03) (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Thames (LE, $8.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Hyperfresh (360) (LE, $45.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Vibration (270) (P, $45.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Clutch (P, $8.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

The formula is described as a “luxurious powder blush” with “silky smooth application” that yields a “radiant glow” and a “delicate flush of color.” The latter seems to suggest a sheerer formulation. This shade had a stiffer texture that was harder to get color payoff out of, so even though sheer coverage is intended, it was hard to just get that onto a brush–I really had to jab at the surface to get enough product for even that. It could also blend better, as it takes some extra time and maneuvering to really diffuse the edges. I wish the texture was nicer, because the finish is more of a natural matte–not dry or flat but not shimmery. This shade wore well for seven hours on me.

The formula is described as a “luxurious powder blush” with “silky smooth application” that yields a “radiant glow” and a “delicate flush of color.” The latter seems to suggest a sheerer formulation. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a soft, powdery texture that seemed a little harder to blend out as it had a tendency to stick more heavily to some places than others. I would recommend lightly powdering with a setting or finishing powder prior to applying this, as it will tamp down any natural oiliness that’s on the skin or if you used cream/liquid foundation, your foundation. The color is absolutely gorgeous, but I really wish it easier to use! Once on, it has a satiny sheen that is both luminous and natural without emphasizing pores or the skin’s natural texture. It lasted for seven hours on me before starting to fade and breakdown.

The formula is described as a “luxurious powder blush” with “silky smooth application” that yields a “radiant glow” and a “delicate flush of color.” The latter seems to suggest a sheerer formulation. While Hibiscus was a miss, Nectar is much easier to use and easier to forgive where it is imperfect. The texture is softer, a little dry and prone to excess powder kicking up in the pan, but it looks great on the skin and very luminous without emphasizing the skin’s texture or the look of pores. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (to semi-opaque) that blended out easily. The color wore well for seven hours on me before fading.

Makeup Geek Chit Chat, Pillow Talk, Toxic, Rebel, Hot Pants Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek Chit Chat Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Chit Chat Eyeshadow

Makeup Geek Chit Chat Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium periwinkle with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It seemed really promising, but it was surprisingly hard to work with, especially for a shimmer–it had a dustiness to it that made it hard to apply evenly. I could only get it to apply decently with a damp brush. It lasted for seven hours on me. MAC Blue Orbit (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay UV-B (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Plot Twist (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #19 (P, $32.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Pool Shark (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Moon's Reflection (P, $16.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Pillow Talk Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is a light-medium, mauve-y lavender with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was very thin and dusty–and it was a color that seemed to change with each layer, almost as if it wasn’t mixed well or the colors weren’t binding, because sometimes it was lavender and other times it was reddish. Maybelline Hibiscus Heartbreak (125) (LE, $6.99) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Great Beyond #2 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Soft Plum (LE, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Poesie #3 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Leap #1 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Crystal (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Utopia (96) (LE, $32.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Toxic Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with a blackened-brown base and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation, though not fully opaque, with a fairly blendable and smooth texture that wasn’t too dusty. It applied well to the skin and lasted for eight hours. Urban Decay Backfire (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Natasha Denona Smoky Plum (23P) (P, $29.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Opaline (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Bewitched (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). Milani Bella Purple (15) (P, $4.49) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Highly Charged (LE, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Dior Constellation (864) #4 (LE, ) is darker (85% similar). Too Faced Provence (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). theBalm Surfari (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Clinique Grape Pop (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Vanity (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Rebel Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is a medium, bluish gray base with warmer, gold and brown shimmer. The shimmer separates away from the base color when blended; even just patted on it, it was hard to keep the shimmer in place for an even finish/application. I think with an adhesive base and lots of patting and packing on, it could be quite interesting, as it was harder to dupe, but I’m surprised they released something that felt so unfinished. The color lasted for six and a half hours. MAC Elegant Friend (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Purple Rain (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Flowers 2 #2 (LE, $25.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). NARS Flowers 3 #2 (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Inglot #420 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Hot Pants Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky lavender with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that was just a smidgen dusty but was otherwise easy to work with. It wore well for eight hours on me. Anastasia Electro (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). CoverGirl Blazing Purple (340) (P, $4.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Asphyxia (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Smoothie (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more muted (90% similar).

MAC Blooming Mad (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Tonic (P, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Ignition (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #24 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Makeup Geek Blacklight (P, $6.00) is lighter (80% similar). Kat Von D Arcadia (LE, ) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Makeup Geek Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is supposed to be a “highly-pigmented” powder eyeshadows. They come in a variety of finishes and shades, and the range has some winners but more than a few misses, too, so your mileage may vary from shade to shade. The formula tends to be softer and a little more powdery/dusty as they are not as firmly pressed into their pans, but they aren’t typically crumbly or so loose that they are prone to breakage. I find the more shimmery shades to be the most consistent in pigmentation, blendability, and wear, while the more neutral-hued matte shades are often finely-milled, blendable, and easy to use. The brighter pops of color, both shimmer and more matte, can run the gamut on quality. Some shades are better built-up than immediately opaque, which can suit some application styles better. The wear tends to fall between seven and eight hours as some shades are more prone to fading as a result of the dustier texture. (Note: this applies to their standard powder formula, not their Foiled line, which is a different formulation.)
