Black Opal Baked Blush Powder

Black Opal Baked Blush Powder ($8.95) is a new baked blush that launched for the Fall 2015 season which is exclusively available on their site online. Can I please see a show of hands for those that love Baked Blush?!

I’m not alone over here am I? I’m such a fan of Bourjois Paris Blush and let’s not forget Laura Geller’s Baked Blush!

And of course, now I’m fan girling over the budget friendly Black Opal Baked Blushes too!

Black Opal Baked Blush Powder are $8.95 each and come in five shade selections. Each blush comes housed in a black compact that holds 0.09 oz of product. I got two shades one of which is my favorite shade of the moment and it’s called Nectar (and reminds me a lot like Tarte Glisten). This is a gorgeous shade of deeper golden apricot that gives my cheeks a pop of pretty color.

These shades are silky, easy to apply, and leave behind a nice touch of beautiful wearable color. I wouldn’t call them super pigmented because they are not but they provide enough color to cheeks to look natural and never over done. As with many baked formulas they have a silky smooth surface that applies flawlessly on cheeks. I never feel like I can over due baked blush even with my heavier hand. Why? Because baked blush typically isn’t powdery! The surface is very smooth and as you brush your brush through it you’ll find it picks up and distributes just the right amount of color without every over doing things! The color fades a little too quickly for me at around six hours (pushing it to eight or ten hours of wear would make these purpose) so I do see a bit of intensity lost at the hour six mark and color fades almost completely by hour seven. But hey, I’m not complaining much as this is fairly typically for me with baked formulas.

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.
