Laura Geller Baby Cakes Blush Palette (Review, Swatches)

Laura Geller Blush

Four mini baked blushes from Laura Geller.

Where to Buy:  Beauty.com
Price:  $39
Quantity:  1.2 grams per blush

I have a soft spot for Laura Geller’s Blush-n-Brighten (I won’t kid myself, I have a soft spot for baked blushes in general).  Who can resist the gorgeous medleys of colour?  This palette contains four mini-sized blushes and a mini brush.  The blushes are:

Sugar-Free Raspberry:  bright medium pink (matte)
Pink Grapefruit: 
rosy shimmer
Golden Apricot: 
gold peach shimmer
Sunswept: 
warm tan shimmer

The blushes are beautifully pigmented, and I appreciate the addition of a matte baked blush.  The brush is mostly pointless – the pigment in these blushes requires a bigger, fluffier brush to apply with.  The palette is made of thick cardboard and has a mirror in the lid.

This is a nice introduction to Laura Geller blushes, and certainly more affordable than diving in with a full-sized one.  As you can see, these blushes can become a but of a shimmer explosion.  I prefer to layer them over a matte or satin blush, as a blush/highlighter effect.  Here are the blushes heavily swatched beside each other, for shade comparison:
