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 to semi-opaque coverage (when built up) that had a lightly dusty texture that kicked up some excess in the pan but did not appear dry or chalky applied to the skin. The shimmer diffuses to a beautiful, glowy finish that didn’t emphasize pores or my skin’s natural texture–just a smooth, luminous sheen. It started to fade after six and a half hours of wear. I really wish these were either more pigmented or the brand more accurately described them, as they have all been sheer to medium in coverage.
