Packaging: 9/10

These blushes come in round, plastic compacts with snap-shut lids and a see-through top.

Quality: 8.5/10

Living Doll is a very pale, slightly frosty pink color. Used normally, this color is best suited for highlighting with a matching pink blush. Only if you layer the color will you get enough pink pigmentation to use it as a blush color.

Used normally, the powder doesn’t have great pigmentation. But once you layer the color, the bright pink tone shows up strongly. This color is a little too bright for my taste–it makes me feel like I’m wearing a color more suitable for a kid or young teenager. But I do like that the shimmer isn’t chunky and doesn’t look gaudy.

The wear time is pretty good. I didn’t have any trouble with the color fading.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

Application is pretty hassle-free. The powder does require multiple layers to be used as a blush and a little blending to get a completely smooth finish.

Price: 10/10

For $7.00 you get 8 grams (0.28 ounces) of blush. Palladio’s Baked Blush costs $6.99 and contains only 2.5 grams.
