City Color Cosmetics Baked Blush in Pink: Review, Photos & Swatches

City Color Cosmetics Baked Blush in Pink. 

Product Description:
The City Color Baked Blushes are beautifully marbleized in rich tones to give your cheeks an even splash of color. Comes in 6 colors formulated with a smooth and light application for a flawless cheekbone.

My Thoughts:
City Color Cosmetics Baked Blush in Pink ($2.99 for 0.325 oz./9.30 g.) is a pretty pink with glowy shimmer. It's easy to apply and it blends nicely into the skin. I do find that using my fingers or a very dense brush works best with this blush. I tried using my Large Angled Contour F40 brush from Sigma Beauty (one of my favorite brushes for applying blush), but the product didn't transfer as well from the brush to my cheeks. So I switched over to my Real Techniques Stippling Brush, which actually works great with this product.

The texture of the blush is nice and very soft. It doesn't have that gritty/harsh feeling on the skin or a weird scent. It does have some shimmer to it which looks very natural on the skin, and it gives the cheeks a nice glow too. It's not the most pigmented blush that I've tried, but it gets the job done. I don't have to be as careful with it, like with some the my other blushes in my collection. It's a little sheer but the color is build able, so it's possible to make it look a little brighter if you want to :-)

It comes in a sleek, black container with a clear lid. I love that most of the lid is clear because it allows me to see what the product looks like, and it's great for storage purposes as well. Like I mentioned in my recent review of the City Color Multi-Color Blush in Coral, the product name is not listed on the back of the compact. That is the only thing I wish they would change about the packaging. So I will be adding a little sticker on the back with the name of the blush, so I know exactly what shade it is :-)  

Overall, I think that this blush is okay. The shade is really pretty, I like that it gives my cheeks a pretty pink flush and a little bit of a glow as well. This blush is great to use on days that you just want a flush of color, and you don't want to risk looking like a clown for the rest of the day, LOL. It's only $2.99 so if you're in the marked for a new blush, this might be worth checking out :-)
