Makeup Review: Laura Geller Baby Cakes Baked Blush Palette with Retractable Brush

By Sandhya, age 27, South Carolina

I bought Laura Geller's Baby Cakes Baked Blush Palette with a bit of trepidation because, to be honest, I'd never heard of her before. But the palette was featured in Lucky magazine, and being a die-hard Lucky fan, I decided to give it a try. And, oh my God, am I glad I did!

The packaging is gorgeous; sleek back with the glowing blushes embedded inside, and a tiny silver retractable brush. There are four stunning colors, and the descriptions on are spot-on:

Golden Apricot: This high-energy blush can cheer up any skin, with rich tones of bronzed apricot, cream, gold and a hint of rose swirled together to create radiance on your cheeks.

Sunswept: The perfect shades of sunshine to give cheeks a good, healthy glow. Swirls of bronze, coral, rose-pink and golden peach work equally well with warm and cool lip colors.

Pink Grapefruit: The pink of perfection for every skin tone. Sheer enough to look natural, colorful enough to look great! Swirls of beige, mauve and pink shimmer impart a fresh, lively blush, and the glow of good health.

"Sugar free" Raspberry: This soft, matte cheek color brings a rich, believable blush to your cheeks. The velvety neutral blend of light pink, berry and beige lends a gentle depth of color and a richness of tone.

What really sold me on this blush palette is that it works with any skin tone. I love glowing, dewy-looking skin, and that's exactly what this product delivers. For about $40, I think this is an absolute bargain. My only complaint? The retractable brush is hard to get out of its slot, and is way too tiny. Other than that, this is my Holy Grail of makeup products.
