e.l.f Baked Blushes

Ok so I have already reviewed the e.l.f baked eyeshadows, bronzers, and highlighters. Today I'll be reviewing their baked blushes! These blushes retail for $3.00 each and come in 4 shades Peachy Cheeky, Rich Rose, Pinktastic, and Passion Pink. The packaging is exactly the same for the baked eyeshadow singles, highlighters, bronzers and blushes. A clear plastic dome shaped lid that snaps shut to a black plastic base. These are pretty pigmented but still they can be applied dry for a sheer natural affect or applied wet for a more intense look.

e.l.f Says: The soft and shimmering color of our Baked Blush creates a natural healthy glow. Baked in an oven, these blushes offer rich pigmentation for a beautiful effect. The long-lasting formula provides a gorgeous, smooth and even application. Infused with active key ingredients Jojoba, Rose, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape to nourish and hydrate the skin. Apply this shimmering color dry for sheer pigmentation, or use a damp brush or sponge for a more vibrant effect. Using a brush, apply to the apples of the cheeks for a subtle wash of color. Or dampen a brush and blend in for a more vibrant effect. Build color for desired look.


Rich Rose- A Brownish Red color with a dark pink marbling.

                                Peachy Cheeky- A Peachy Coral color with light brown marbling.
                                                                                    
                                   Passion Pink- A bright peachy beige color with pink marbling.
                                                                                 
                      Pinktastic- More of a highlighter than a blush. A bright frosty pink color with pink marbling.
                                                                                      

These are great if you like shimmer in your blush, personally I do not. They are not too overwhelming with the shimmer though.

e.l.f Baked Bronzers

e.l.f Baked Bronzers are great for everyday wear because they are sheer enough to give a natural look but can be built up. If used wet, you can achieve a more intense sun kissed glow.There are 4 shades available St. Lucia, Maui, Los Cabos, and Bora Bora. They can be purchased here for $3.00 each. I personally don't care much for bronzer with shimmer and the only one in this collection that doesn't contain much is St. Lucia and it's a very light brown. The packaging on all of the baled products excluding the baked eyeshadow palettes are the same. The clear dome shaped lip snaps shut, I personally like this packaging and think it's sturdy enough. I have dropped mine many times and I haven't noticed any cracking or anything.

e.l.f says: Create a healthy, shimmering sun-kissed look with our Baked Bronzers. Baked in an oven, these bronzers offer rich pigmentation for a beautiful effect. The long-lasting formula provides a luxurious, smooth and even application. Infused with active key ingredients Jojoba, Rose, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape to nourish and hydrate the skin. Apply this shimmering color dry for sheer pigmentation, or use a damp brush or sponge for a more vibrant effect. Using a brush, apply dry on the areas of the face where the sun would naturally hit for a subtle wash of color. Or dampen a brush and blend in for a more vibrant effect. Build color for desired look.

I have swatched these both wet and dry to show the difference in texture.


St. Lucia- A light brown color with no shimmer.
