I have started a small review campaign here on my blog where I am going to do review posts on all of the products I featured on my Makeup products in Korea post. I brought very limited number of cosmetics to Korea and most of these are the products that I have been using for a year and plan to use (ad finish or discard) before I go crazy with Korean cosmetics. Today I am here with The Body Shop Baked To Last Blush review post.
Product: The Body Shop Baked To Last blush – 02 Coral

When I saw these blushes for the first time, I had not used many of The Body Shop makeup products except the Tinted glow enhancer. The colors, packaging and the concept intrigued me and after the first swatch, I was sold!
It is available in two shades – Petal (01) and Coral (02). I bought the Coral shade (02) because it seemed like a warm-toned color and I expected it look good on me. The Petal shade (01) seemed like a cool-toned color so I decided to try it later on after using the Coral shade for some time (I will buy it when I go back to India).
The highlight shade looks so beautiful applied as such on the browbone and cheekbones as a highlight. It looks like a subtle liquid gold if applied wet!
The best feature of this products is actually the versatility the baked form provides – they can be used dry or wet and they look good in both cases. The blush shade is really pigmented and looks beautiful on the skin. I have also used it as an eyeshadow and it looks amazing.
I sometimes use the highlight shade as an all-over eyelid shade and just apply a winged liner for a natural but glamorous look. This is one of the best blush I have ever used and I am sure it a best-seller at The Body Shop.
Rating – 5/5
Recommend – Yes. Yes. Yes.
Repurchase – Definitely
Check it out on The Body Shop website. I love the fact that I can use it dry and wet, and that I can use it as a blush, highlight (of course) and eye shadow as well. I love The Body Shop and I hope they introduce more colors to the Baked-to-Last blush duo line!
