Finally! I got fed up of constantly buying cheaper blushes because I couldn't find one that had the right colour and shimmer and then I found this! I swirl my brush over the 3 shades for my day to day colour :) when doing my makeup for a more special occasion, I use the bronzer to contour my cheekbones, the blush and highlighter on the apples of my cheeks then use a bit of translucent powder to blend together :)
I went to Sephora looking for a new blush and when I saw this palette, I thought I would give this a try. I like the idea of the bronzer, highlighter and blush in one convenient compact. The blush is a pretty rosy pink flush that I love, but I find that the bronzer is just a tad bit orangey. The highlighter is very shimmery, and when I use it, I use it sparingly. The palette is highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way.
Edit: I began sweeping my blush brush across the palette and applying, as some MUAers suggested, and it makes a huge difference. The colors blend well together and look natural. I like the palette much more using it this way.
I got this palette for Christmas and I've just started to use it now. I was never really a fan of blush/bronzers before but because I received this palette, I decided to use more blush/bronzer/highlighters.
For people who travel, I think this palette is perfect. It's small and compact and in my opinion, the packaging is stable enough to withhold any moving about. It also has a nice sized mirror which is more high quality of a mirror than the mirror in some of their palettes like the Naked 1.
The palette really does stand true to it's name and makes you look "flushed." I'm not a huge fan of the highlight color (it's a little too shimmery for my taste) but the blush is beautiful and pretty pigmented (though not as pigmented and vibrant as say Wet n Wild's blushes). I think the blush is the perfect amount of pigmentation however, because too much pigmentation would be difficult to work with in the shade that's given to give you a "flushed" look and not an overtly pink-in-your-face type of blush.
As for the bronzer, I'm not totally a fan. I rarely use bronzers and the bronzer's lack of pigmentation gives me a little more motivation to skip on it every time I use the palette. Because the only thing I'm completely a fan about in this palette is the blush, I wouldn't repurchase, just because I got it as a gift and I didn't buy it with my own money. However, for people who want convenient on-the-go compacts with your blush/bronzer/highlight and want something a little bit more natural, I would recommend this for you.
I don't know why I keep looking at other blushes/bronzers...this really is perfect for me. I sweep all the colors together and it looks awesome. A really perfect glow. I use the highlighter color in the middle more heavily and love the shimmer. It is a really great palette. You don't want to use too much though - one sweep across the palette and tapping the brush off on the sink will suffice.
I've been a huge fan of all the Urban Decay Naked palettes and was extremely excited about trying out the Naked flushed. I found the product to not be very pigmented. For the price, it was absolutely worth it, but I found it barely showed up on my skin. $33 for the palette is a great price considering what other high end brands charge, so I was dissapointed that it didn't work out for me. Most likely best used for those of fair skin.
These are so velvety and natural looking. They're also very pigmented so you need very little. I like that they have a slight shimmer (if you sweep your brush across the whole thing) which highlights without looking glittery or tacky.
This is my new go-to! I love blush-bronzer-highligher palettes. This format is pretty much the only way you'll get me to happily purchase bronzer.
The Naked Flushed palette stands above the rest because of the amount of product you get. It's .49 oz, while most other combo palettes have much less product and cost the same (or more)!
Not only is the best option in this format, it has a beautiful matte bronzer, which is hard to find. If you apply it lightly with the proper brush, it will look great on even fair skin. The blush is rosy, and also needs to be applied lightly since it is very pigmented. This is not a bad thing - it allows you to use this palette for a long time!
The highlight is shimmery and not as pigmented. The powder itself doesnt have the same consistency as the blush and bronzer. My only complaint is that you'll likely run out of it before you run out of either of the others.
For me, this palette is a straight rebuy. It's the best!
Such a great palette! I got this for Christmas and wasn't sure what I'd do with it because I never used to use bronzer and very rarely used blush, but I thought I'd give this a try. I used the MAC 109 (Small Contour) brush to apply both the bronzer and the blush.
I don't think the bronzer is very pigmented, but it is buildable, and when you do this, the glow is perfect! I'd say it's pretty fool proof, and that's coming from someone who has tried for years and years to learn how to contour (and has failed, repeatedly!).
I applied the blush to the apples of my cheeks. I had to use a light touch because the blush is much more pigmented than the bronzer. However, the blush also turns out to give off a nice soft glow if done just right. Try not to build it too much, and use a light hand.
I can't say anything about the highlighter. I don't really plan on using it because my face tends to get oily throughout the day.
This is definitely a staple for me!
this showed up pretty well on my skin. i am not too tan but not too fair so if you blend all three, it gives me a healthy "flush"on the cheeks. overall a good product!
I like it not too shimmer. It cost $30 at Macy but will last for long time. Most of my blushes and bronzer last 2-3 years. Worth the money.
