Laura Geller New York Baked Blush-n-Brighten

At Birchbox HQ, we’re known for loving all things baked—Mollie Chen’s homemade cookies, cronuts—and now, baked makeup. This pioneering powder gets its start as pure liquid pigment before being baked for 24 hours. The result? A weightless-feeling powder that’s free of added fillers. This winning blush and highlighter combo is sure to become a key player in your makeup routine. Each of the three shades has a swirl of dark and light hues that combine to give you a perfectly flushed finish. We love how they have the barest hint of sparkle—and slide on smoothly.

Made my skin look ashy
Sampled

I am a brown skinned African American woman. When I looked at this product in the package, I thought to myself yes, this is going to be a great match! That was not the case. It made my skin look ashy and dry. Fail.

Disappointed

I received this in a value kit set along with some other Laura Geller products and was severely disappointed. I can't seem to get blush to my brush to my face. I was definitely hoping for more.

Way too dark

I received a sample of this in Pink Grapefruit in my March box, and though I was really looking forward to trying this blush there's so much bronze in it that it ended up looking really dark and unnatural. Granted, I am very very fair, so that's always a risk with anything brownish on me, but the sample I received definitely had more bronze than pink in it. Maybe I'll try it as a bronzer, but I suspect it'll be too dark even for that.

Too thick

I was excited to purchase this with the pairing highlighter, but unfortunately, this was just too bold/tick for my liking. Even though I applied it with my blush brush and just did a once-over, it made me look like I was flushed and overheated. BUT- I'm rosy-cheeked already, being a natural redhead, so that definitely had some part in it. I'd say if you have a lighter complexion without any color, this would be awesome for you.

I don't wear blush

This product seemed nice and light. I won't wear it but it wont have a hard time gifting it to a friend.

Nothing great
Sampled

This matches my medium/dark skin tone, so I couldn't see it on my face. Maybe a different color would be better!

Baked Blush

Laura Gellar is a good product but the size was way too small and quality wasn't like real baked products

Just OK
Sampled

Nothing remarkable about this product. Not a bad choice as far as bronzers go, but might be too sparkly/shiny for those who like more of a natural/mat finish. Almost better as a highlighter on top of blush and/or bronzer.

Not a fan of the color or the sparkle
Sampled

This blush isn't awful... quite highly pigmented with a bit of sparkle. I just REALLY disliked the melon-orange color... and the sparkle made me look like a disco ball. I went for a very light application and it was still too much color. Wouldn't be opposed to trying something in a more pink tone, but this product wasn't my thing.
