Laura Geller New York Baked Blush-n-Brighten Pink Grapefruit is a true, rich, peachy-pink shade. It is a pigmented shade and one swipe brings full intensity of the shade to the cheeks which can be blended on with the blush brush for a softer look.
The shade “Pink Grapefruit” has a noticeable sheen, due to the presence of micro golden particles, but the sheen is not over the top and doesn’t make me look a disco ball. Although, it adds a healthy glow to my cheeks with a flush of natural peach shade, too much of it can make one look weird. So, controlled amount and proper blending should be the mantra, especially when wearing it during day time. This blush has superb quality and blends effortlessly.
Staying Power: Laura Geller New York Baked Blush-n-Brighten in Pink Grapefruit proved to be a long-wearing blush. The flush of peach stays on my cheeks for more than 8 hours and the sheen a bit more. Made in Italy, the quality satisfies me with an attractive ingredients list, which is free of parabens.
