In cosmetics blushes are typically used by women to give color to their cheeks and give that glowing youthful looking appearance. There's about four (4) types of blushes that I know which are, Powder finish, cream, liquid and tinted blushes. But there's also the baked blush that I wanted to try out for my self. So I purchased three (3) baked blushes from www.theprimppad.com and these blushes are from e.l.f cosmetics.  Their website has a lot of authentic make brands to choose from with a cheap price, if your a beauty enthusiast then check their website,you can also follow them on their instagram @theprimppad .

Here's the blushes that I have purchased & I got 3 baked blushes:

The soft and shimmering colour 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.

Using a brush, apply to the apples of the cheeks for a subtle wash of colour. Or dampen a brush and blend in for a more vibrant effect. Build colour for desired look.

Ingredients:
Mica, Talc, Nylon-12, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Paraffinum Liquidum (mineral oil), Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Dimethicone, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Ve), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina (Rose Hip) Fruit Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil , Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491 , CI 77492 , CI 77499), Ultramarine Violet (CI 77077), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Tin Oxide (CI 77861), Yellow No.5 Lake (CI 19140), Red No.40 Lake (CI 16035), Red No.7 Lake (CI 15850), Blue No.1 Lake (CI 42090).

For the packaging, the blushes are in their studio line which is very chic because they come in a black sleek boxes, and on the front you can already see the blushes.
Inside the box, they're secured with each plastic bases that's beneath them and this is to prevent the blushes from moving around the box and sliping out from the box. 
Here's how the actual baked blushes looks like, they come in a black container with a plastic transparent lid. Each blush is formed uniquely small enough to fit on the container, because of their shapes they remind me like mini hills. But they're not too bulky looking they're actually thin just to fit for our makeup bags.
I noticed that these blushes were created beautifully because I can tell from it's appearance they are very pigmented.
SWATCHES:
PASSION PINK
For the first baked blush, passion pink has a mixture of deep kinda of bronze/ orange color 
which I prefer using this on a summers hot days, because this will definitely give me that beach/y bronzed glow. 
PEACHY CHEEKY
The second color which is called peachy cheeky , the color has a sun kissed peach color but a  bit shimmer/y. This I could also use alone for a sun kissed glow on a summer day.
RICH ROSE
 For last blush which is Rich Rose, the color has slightly blue under tones with also pink tones, the color also consist of shimmers and also so pigmented. I could honestly wear this on a gloomy day because on cold weathers I wanna have those kind'a frost bites like your cheeks are freezing cold and just turns slightly pinkish.

FINAL VERDICT:

PROS:
- The packaging is professionally made
- It's not too bulky for your makeup bag
- each color is really pigmented with just one swatch of my finger
- each blush has shimmers in it to give you that youthful glow/y appearance
- Doesn't have any manufactured smell at all
- Price is affordable for a studio line blush


CONS:
- Each blush has minimal fall outs due to the shimmers in it
- doesn't come with a brush neither a mirror


Overall each blush has its own color payoff that's so beautiful for any type of skin tones. But it's best to apply the baked blushes with a brush for a lot more control, because they are very pigmented.

Will you repurchase the Baked Blushes?

Maybe, because i'm not a very big fan of blushes with shimmer's in it I prefer the powder finish ones because shimmer blushes doesn't look to attractive on me. But I love how each color creates a washed color for my cheeks.

Which do you prefer for your blushes Baked?Cream?Liquid? or powder finish?
^_^

 Till next time as always Take care & "simply love life always"
