Is this like Schrodinger’s blush? Is it simultaneously blush, illuminator and bronzer? Now that I’ve horribly misused a respected scientific principle, let’s talk about makeup!
NYX Baked Blush+Illuminator+Bronzer in Wanderlust
NYX Baked Blush+Illuminator+Bronzer in Foreplay
NYX Baked Blush+Illuminator+Bronzer is not actually listed on NYX’s website, but according to the Ulta website:
Baked to sheer perfection NYX’s Baked Blush, this luxurious formula is packed full of pigments to provide a natural glow and highlight to the face. Uniquely designed to be used wet or dry, depending upon the makeup statement you want to make.
Until this very moment it never occurred to me to use a blush, bronzer OR highlight wet. I may have to experiment.
This review has been sitting in my drafts for a while because I just don’t have any very specific feelings on these blushes. They are sheer but slightly build-able. They look nice enough on my face but it’s not possible to get an intense blush look. They wear fine. There just isn’t anything great or horrible out them, they’re pretty mediocre. Most of the shades looked fairly similar to one another in the pan as well so these wouldn’t be well suited to a wide range of skin tones.
Pricing and availability: I purchased these at CVS but they’re also available from Ulta. They retail for around $7.00
Overall I would say you can probably skip these. They’re nice enough but nothing special.
Have you tried these? I would love to know if your experience was vastly different.
- I am so tired. I haven’t been sleeping well and Gray Cat has had a case of the crazies that lasts all night every night for the last few nights. There was a mouse involved. It’s awesome.
- I just bought a salad from Publix because it was called Fire and Ice. It was neither firy nor icy. Sad.
