Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush Review and Swatches

When I originally discussed Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush with you I was in high debate if I wanted to indulge. The "matte" part really threw a Muse off. Am I the only one that finds the idea of a matte blush terribly unappealing? I was just thinking matte eyeshadow such a difficult blending process, imagine blush? How would that work?

Jump ahead to find out if matte works in a blush!

Turns out my fears of a matte blush are unfounded by the fact that Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush is more of a satiny finish with a sheer layer of sparkle. Quite gorgeous to say the least. So far I've only picked up one shade in this blush and I couldn't be happier that I indulged. The formula is silky smooth with a nice satin finish and the barest hint of shimmer. For a baked product you'll get nice color pay off which is sometimes not always the case with baked shadows or blushes. I was quite impressed with the natural, fresh glow that blush gave me cheeks. I picked this up at Sephora in the shade Exposed which has hints of both peach and pink. It reminds me a bit of a watermelon candy for some reason or another.

I didn't peek at the Lorac Baked Matte Satin Eye Shadow because I was in a rush but I'm now wanting to go back and have a look, see at those plus pick up the other shades in this blush. The shade is truly unique with a very nice finish. I'm Muse Approving it for purchase! Quite a pretty blush for Summer wear!

Anyone try?

This blush looks so pretty! From the pictures it kind of reminds me of Laura Geller's Blush n Brighten in Roseberry (which is one of my all time faves!) Definitely worth a looksie. Thanks for this post!
