The Baked Blush formula is supposed to be “buildable from sheer to vibrant” paired with a “silky” texture. Red Vino had larger, more noticeable sparkle than a lot of the blushes I’ve tried in the range. The texture was thinner, a little drier, and was harder to work with, though it blended out more easily than I expected after swatching. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque. There were some noticeable sparkles on the skin, but it was more of a satin sheen overall, once blended in. This shade wore for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

This is pretty. But, In my current blush overload status and the shorter wear time , I’m going to take a pass. Plus, I own Goulue, Love Thing,Cola pop, and Pink Glow. I must sing the praises of Goulue! the name is so weird- no idea what it means! But, it is just so pretty and smooth! Super pretty eye look Christine!

Such a beautifully flattering shade, but the larger sparkles kinda kill it for me. MAC Love Thing or Gleeful are more to my liking. It’s not that I hate all glitter, but definitely not a fan of it on my cheeks!

I love this blush BUT! Yes BUT! It doesn’t work on my oily skin. It applies beautifully and it lasts almost all day, but I have very oily skin and some how by the end of the day I always end up looking like a clown. The oil in my skin just spreads the blush everywhere. It’s so weird. 🙁

I LOVE your eye look! Is Colourpop Ibiza the turquoise shade on the lower lashline? If so, I NEED it! I almost got it in my last order. I have the other Colourpop shadows you used =)

This is one of my favorite Milani blushes! It’s such a beautiful color and great for adding a nice pop of color to the cheeks. I need to pull it out and wear it soon!

I have this! I just wore it the other day. It’s a pretty, buildable shade. The shimmer is noticeable but looks more like a luminous glow once the blush is blended into the cheeks.

Had the biggest wave of nostalgia omg. This was one of the first blushes I bought back in high school years ago and I wore it every single day lol. I have one still in the back of my blush drawer, might have to pull it out now !
