The Baked Blusher formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and have a “natural soft effect” with a “hint of shimmer.” The texture was smooth without being dusty or powdery, and it applied easily and blended out nicely on the skin. Despite seeming to have al ot of shimmer, it gave the skin a moderate glow but did not emphasize pores for me. The downside to this shade was that it was nowhere near “highly pigmented” and just barely shows up on my medium complexion, so I would tend to recommend this to those with lighter skin tones or looking more for a highlighter in this hue. The color wore well for seven hours before fading.

Hmm, this might be nice for lighter skintones who are afraid of over-doing the pigment, but brands always seem to say highly pigmented when it’s not

You’re not kidding, this blush is not all that pigmented. Although I do see it on you, I don’t think it would be much more than a highlighting blush on me. Like to just bump up the glow in another pinky blush. Oh well, I guess these blushes by MUR are more geared towards lighter skin tones.
