These two blushes were in front of the LORAC Cosmetics display in Sephora for the past several months, as they were new releases, and they instantly caught my eye. For one, I love LORAC Cosmetics, and I use a lot of their products. Also, the shades of blush really spoke to me as colors you could wear with a lot of different makeup looks. With both in my shopping bag, I excitedly brought them home, ready to see how pigmented these blushes were.
These LORAC Baked Matte Satin Blushes have the perfect finish to them. They are not completely matte, and have a bit of glimmer to them, yet they are also not shimmery. The word “satin” perfectly describes them, and it reminds me of when you are buying paint for a room, and you choose a “satin” finish…the result is not shiny, and not matte, but somewhere in between.
Flaunt is a gorgeous bright hot pink blush. It does have a bit of a purple/violet tone to it, as well. This blush was the original shade that caught my eye, as all I could think of what was how beautiful this would look against a glow. As soon as I swatched it on my hand in the store, I noticed it has a very light silvery shimmer to it, and yet it isn’t so shimmery that it will highlight imperfections on your face. This shade is very pigmented and rich in color, and you only need a small amount of product on your blush brush for great results. I love to lightly swirl this shade on my cheeks when I am going with a neutral eye, as it results in bright doll-like cheeks. I have also used this blush on darker skin tones, and it looks even better than on my skin – it is total glamour!
Plush is the more demure of the two, but still a beautiful pure peach blush. The color in this blush is also very pigmented, even for a less dramatic color. This blush is especially great to reach for when I am doing a dramatic eye, especially if the eye makeup is in a bright color, such as blue. The peach tone of this blush makes it a great neutral cheek option. This shade also has a light silver shimmer to it as well, although it is less noticeable than in “Flaunt.”
Both blushes leave your cheeks with a very smooth and even finish. Personally, I have the other three shades this blush comes in on my wish list.
LORAC Cosmetics Baked Matte Satin Blush comes in three other shades besides the ones shown in this post: Exposed, a peachy pink, Hollywood, a bronzed rose, and Velvet Rose, a plum rose. Each blush retails for $24, and can be purchased at your local Sephora or Ulta location. You can also browse and purchase these blushes online by clicking the photographs and links below:
