I'm starting to think I have a bit of an obsession with blush. My collection seems to consistently be growing and I can't seem to help myself. Of course, I don't think this is a bad thing because I love to be able to have a wide selection of different shades and finishes to go with every eye look... That's a good excuse, right? Anyway, I've been eyeing this up for a while and I finally got my hands on the new Glow All The Way Ombré Blush* from Hard Candy to pop into my collection. Miraculously enough, I don't already have anything like this in my collection, which is always a huge plus!

From Hard Candy:
Baked ombre blush gives your cheeks allover warmth and glow. The ulta-light, micronized pigments are infused with radiance enhancing pearls and blend effortlessly into the skin to enhance skintone and give you a natural looking finish.

If you've never used Hard Candy's baked products, you're missing out. I, myself, was quite surprised at how smooth and pigmented they really are. For some reason, I tend to equate baked products to a dry, chalky feeling, but this is silky smooth and incredibly pigmented. I literally have no complaints about the formula whatsoever.

One thing I will say, though, is that this blush has a LOT of sheen and glow, so if you've got a lot of texture on your skin or a really glowy look isn't your thing, this probably isn't the blush for you.

Can we just take a moment and look at how gorgeous this looks in the pan? From a pure white to a vibrant fuscia, this blush is just absolutely beautiful to behold. Because of the ombré, there's a few different ways that you can use this blush. Obviously, you can swirl your brush over the whole thing to get a beautiful, almost doll-like pink glow to the cheeks, but you can also focus on either side of the pan for a highlight or a bright pink flush to the cheeks. I personally like this best when I focus more on the right side of the pan to get a really bright pink color. I think this is going to be perfect for winter - surprisingly - to give a pinched, flushed glow to really matte, fair skin. I seriously can't wait to use this once the weather gets cold. It's also obviously beautiful for summer as well, giving a bright glow to the skin. I think a wide array of skin tones would look good in this blush, but my instinct is that it will look best on the fairest of the fair and the deepest of the deep - which is a huge point for this blush, if you ask me.

I'm so excited about this blush, you guys! If the shade and finish look like something that you'd like, I promise you won't be disappointed with the formula. I know I'm going to head out and pick up a couple more Hard Candy baked blushes sooner rather than later, because I'm a believer.

Thanks for reading!
