The Baked Blush-n-Brighten formula is supposed to be “smooth” and “long-wearing” with “a blend of rich, marbleized color.” It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque, with a fairly smooth, blendable texture–it ran a little dusty–that sat well on the skin without emphasizing pores or the skin’s natural texture. The finish had a soft, luminous sheen that didn’t look overly shimmery. The blush wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

I completely forgot I have that blush since it’s not in my favorites drawer!. I bought it because I love the colors in the swirls, it’s so pretty, but I only used it a few times because it’s talc based, and I prefer to use face products without talc if possible because it causes breakouts on me. It’s a shame her “baked” powder products are mostly talc, I would use many of them if they weren’t.

Gotta say, I am really liking these Laura Geller Baked Blush ‘n Brighten cheek shades. This one is no exception. Gorgeous glow factor to it!

I like them! I don’t think one needs too many from the range, since they run together after a few, but one or two, definitely!

It usually wears eight+ hours before it starts breaking down on my skin. Lasts all day at work and I still have good color by the time I get without having to touch up. It’s one of the longest wearing blushes in my entire collection. I have two other blushes from this line, and while great, they are not as long wearing on me (the Apricot one will usually wear well for six-ish hours but it’s almost gone or significantly faded by the time I get home from work). Maybe I just got mine from a good batch! LOL!
