Black Radiance Toasted Almond Artisan Color Baked Blush Review

Product Purchased by IMBB

This shade of the blush is very unique. It made me wonder as why someone would buy this particular shade and not the usual pinks, reds and corals that would look more flattering on most skin tones. This brand is one of its kind and caters specifically to darker skin tone beauties. I have used a bronzer from the same range and I really enjoyed it, hence I decided to give a chance to the blush as well.

My Take on Black Radiance Toasted Almond Artisan Color Baked Blush Review:

This blush reminds me of NARS blushes, but this one is of a better quality. Yes, better quality. I love how this blush is set in a smooth dome and literally has minimal fall out. It is a super smooth product and I enjoy applying it on my cheeks.

Packaging:
The product is placed in a plastic pan, which is attached to a plastic case along with a see-through cover. The packaging is not very sturdy and the cover case is a little wobbly. However, I love the way the product is pressed into the pan, even though it has no inbuilt mirror or a brush. The blush is set in a tomb form, like in the bottom of an earthen clay pot.

Texture:
It is a baked powder blush with no fall out and no shimmer. One can dab off the excess from the brush, while applying to remove any loose pigment, not that there are any. It is very soft in texture and blends effortlessly. It gives a beautiful flush to my cheeks and looks very natural as compared to baby doll pink color, which looks fake on my face.

Color:
It has dark brick color with brown undertones. It does not have shimmer particles and blends beautifully. Since, it has warm undertones, it compliments my skin well.

Pigmentation:
It shows an awesome pigmentation, when applied with a fluffy blush brush. One sweep is enough for both my cheeks, infact more than that might look too garish and unnatural. This shade is better used as a bronzer, rather than a blush. It is a perfect shade for all those who cannot find any color for their dark skin, since most shades cater to fair skin tones.

Shimmer and Shine:
It has no shimmer or shine and gives a natural, matte finish.

Wear Time:
The wear time is an entire day or till it is removed. The staying power is really good because of the good pigmentation and powder texture.

Conclusion:
This is a very pretty blush, which comes in 4 shades that are mostly meant for dark skinned beauties. But I think, these colors can be used on most skin tones and they look very natural. I like how this brand caters specifically to darker skin tone beauties and produces cosmetics, which compliment a section of people, who are usually ignored.
