As you saw yesterday, I have been testing out some new Laura Geller products I was lent by my mum. My first review was on the Luscious Lips Liquid Lipstick in Cherry Almond which was quite nice but nothing to write home about. Next on my trial list was this gorgeous baked blush in Apple Custard. Frankly I find the names to be very confusing as they never really resemble what the shade actually is. Pushing that confusion aside, I've actually been really enjoying this product - a lot more than I expected.
On a quick side note, I find the packaging to be quite ugly, bulky and a little unnecessary. I definitely feel like this could be improved as if I spotted this on the shelf in a store I certainly wouldn't be inclined to take a look at it. Apart from that, the product inside is lovely.
Apple custard is a marble of pink and bronze. When swirled together it creates a beautiful shimmering pink which is incredibly flattering. On the cheeks, it definitely gives you a bronzed look with that pinch of pink coming through to give you the blushing finish.
I can never get a good picture of me wearing the blush as it simply doesn't seem to show up in the photos. However you can see from above that the colour is really beautiful. Although it looks a lot like a highlighter when swatched, the warmer bronze tone comes through when blended into and up the apples of your cheeks. The product is milled so finely that it's a dream to work with and looks incredibly flawless on the skin with minimal effort. The long wearing baked pigments mean that your colour lasts throughout the day without the need for touch ups.
I would definitely recommend these baked blushes to blush enthusiasts like myself. This is the type of product that I would invest in and spend the time searching for as I find that the product itself is such good quality and gives an amazing finish. As far as I can tell, these baked swirl blushes are new to Laura Geller's line and there are only two shades available at the moment. The other version, Berry Creme, looks like a lovely pop of colour for that summer time look, but I think I prefer this shade out of the two.
