Bare Minerals Gen Nude Powder Blush is a new range of pressed blush from the brand that will become part of their permanent collection this Spring. Pressed blush isn’t a new texture by any means from Bare Minerals as they do have an entire range of Ready Blush shades available which launched a few years ago. However, Gen Nude Powder Blush selection is a little larger at 12 shades where as the original range only contains 8.
I happen to like the Ready Blush formula a lot and never really balked at the launch. I know a few people who are old, die hard Bare Minerals fans that rather like the loose eyeshadow and blush range but I’ve found plenty of loves in the Ready Blush and Ready Eyeshadow Collection.
Needless to say the Gen Nude Powder Blush Collection intrigues me and since I’ve been clearing out a lot of my really older blushes and started to archive them away I thought now would be a good time to indulge in a few shades.
You can expect a review and swatches soon! But for now here’s a little about the formula according to Bare Minerals!
Apparently this is a soft, cushion-y blush that has buildable pigmentation. I know people shy away from the words “buildable” as that translates as sheer but I’m heavy-handed with blush so I honestly don’t mind buildable at all. But really, it’s rare Bare Minerals has disappointed me in the color payoff anyway!
The thing that attracted me most to these blushes is they promise a natural, healthy flush with a mineral complex that gives a soft-focused finish.
