Product Review: ELF's Baked Blush in Rich Rose

Product Review: ELF's Baked Blush in Rich Rose

Cost: $3
Where to Purchase: Target
Claims: 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.

Thoughts: I've been wearing this for 3 days straight so I had to squeeze in a quick review because I'm basically in love with this color. When it first arrived both myself and my roommate agreed that it was not wearable, I literally didn't even think about it until Saturday when I was getting ready for the mall and I reached for this, just for kicks. I was literally speechless at how pretty is applies on the face! Never again will I judge a blush by it's oven baked face. Sure, swatching it on my finger it came out dark and bronze-like but applied with a soft MAC187 brush it was like golden butter on my cheeks and absolutely perfect for Summer! And for $3 you cannot - cannot go wrong.
How I use it: I use it with a soft brush like MAC187 or Sigma F55 and apply it on the upper apples of my cheek. It gives a bronze-goddess type of look.

Rating: A

I think this can also make for a very pretty eyeshadow! On the left I packed it on with a Q-tip and on the right it's applied with my Sigma F55. I am NW25, just for reference.


  1. Yep, for $3 sounds like something I should check out. Thanks!

    1. I know, now I'm tempted to get the other colors available!
