Hard Candy Blush Crush Baked Blushes: Bombshell, Living Doll

Hey dolls! Today, I am going to be sharing with you all my thoughts on two of Hard Candy's Blush Crush Baked Blushes. I have Bombshell and Living Doll ($7.00, each). When I saw these at Wal-Mart, I just couldn't resist picking them up. They looked promising and, one can never have too many blushes, right? :)

Bombshell: This one was my most favorite of the two blushes. Bombshell is a gorgeous semi-cool, shimmered golden brown with bits of coral/pink veining. I remember when I came back from Puerto Rico, my face had a little tan going on and, this blush just enhanced it beautifully. This color gives my cheeks such a pretty, natural looking sun-kissed glow that never looks fake or, overdone. I can already tell that Bombshell is going to be one of my daily, summer staples.

Living Doll: Living Doll is a cool, shimmered luminous pink that contains bits of cream colored veining. When I apply this blush on my cheeks, I have to say that the color hardly shows up on my NC25 skin tone. I get a barely-there, light pink flush. I think this blush would work wonderfully for those who are very fair, though. Seeing as the color may just show up more vibrantly, than it did on me. But, Living Doll is still a gorgeous color, nonetheless and, I am glad that it is part of my collection.

When it comes to the shimmers, I don't find them overbearing on my cheeks, at all. They don't enlarge my pores, either. The shimmers don't work against my skin, they actually help mimic that glowing radiance that I just love and can't get enough of. Both blushes have a smooth and silky texture that make application a dream, by blending into my skin effortlessly. As indicated on the back of the compact packaging, these blushes can also be used wet, in order to achieve a more dramatic result. I haven't tried wetting these blushes yet but, maybe if I use Living Doll wet, the color might show up a little more? Although, I don't think I would really feel comfortable using a wet blush on my cheeks. We shall see! When it comes to lasting power, I find that the blushes stay intact for most of the day, with very minimal fading after the 7 hour mark.

Overall, I am really happy that I picked up these two blush crush baked blushes from Hard Candy. They are cruelty free, affordable, the colors are really wearable, and it doesn't hurt that you are getting a lot of product, which I am sure will last a long time. If you are looking for a blush that is inexpensive and will give your cheeks a natural looking glow, then I recommend checking out these Hard Candy blush crush baked blushes. You may just love them.
