Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Sculpting Trio

Did I tell you the way I like wearing bronzer? Blush! That’s my key! Which is why the Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Sculpting Trio is ideal for bronzer haters like me as it contains a luminizer, matte satin blush, and bronzer to highlight, get color, and glow onto your cheeks in one easy compact.

Do like!

Available in two shade selections the Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Sculpting Trio ($20) is a three in one formula to effortlessly contour, blush, bronze, and highlight your face in a few steps.

These baked powders include a luminizer for your cheekbones, a super smooth silky matte satin blush for cheeks, and a matte satin bronzer you can use the contour and define.

The powder is split into three separate shades and are just large enough that you can wriggle your blush into them without running into the other shade. The formula is pigmented with a soft, silky texture that applies onto skin and blends out super easily. They do fade a little quickly on me but setting them with powder seems to prolong the wear considerably. If you’re feeling a little lazy you can swirl your brush in all three and buff onto your cheeks just as easily!

If you’re a contouring fan these are an idea way to contour and apply blush and follow up with highlighter!

As for me I just like the option of having my blush and bronzer in one spot. My favorite duo is the Sultry shade which has a golden terracotta blush that changes to the perfect golden bronze peach on my cheeks. Loves!

These are available now at Sephora and Sephora.com for a limited time.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Sassy reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette. Which one would you prefer?

    There are actually 4 of these. I have it in Sophisticated, which is described as “universal matte”, and I *love* it. The highlighter part is more pearl than shimmer, and the other two shades are more of a satin. All three shades lean neutral, which is a big plus, IMO. There’s also quite a bit of product, and it’s talc- and paraben-free (which is also a big plus for me!), all at a great price.

    A bit OT, Muse, but if you like these, the Nuance/Salma Hayek ones may be worth a try. I have it in Mauve, and it is *twice* as pigmented as the Sephora one. If you catch a sale, or have CVS ExtraBucks, definitely give it a go! I know Nuance products can be a miss, but the Cheek Trios are a total hit.

    Muse, you’re missing a swatch with all three color mixed!!! D:

    Thanks for these though! n_n

    The pink one looks adorable! But now I’ll have to drag my ass to Sephora and see what all three of them combined look like… I’m such a bum.
