Savvy by DB Mineral Baked Blushes

I like blush. I like Priceline. So why not try out Priceline's own brand of blushes? Savvy by DB are exclusive to Priceline and I am quite a fan. They have good products for an affordable price.

'Blossom'
'Coral'

These cost $9 for 5g which I think is good value. They are quite compact, they easily fit into the palm of my hand. They have a clear plastic lid which is pretty flimsy but it'll do. I couldn't photograph these well with their lids closed because of glare coming off the plastic! 

Both of these are absolutely gorgeous colours. If you get the chance to swatch them, do it! They are very pigmented and glide on easily. They are SO pretty in real life, the photos just don't do them justice.

One question I ask is - what is the significance of a baked blush? I know that with eyeshadows it means they can be used wet/dry with great pigmentation but why would anyone apply blush wet...is that even a thing? Anyway, as you can see they are very pretty colours!

One issue I have is that while they have good pigmentation, they are a bit hard to blend...it requires a bit more work to blend out the harsh lines when compared to my regular powder blushes. For this reason, I use these when I spend more time on my makeup (i.e. not for work/uni). They give a gorgeous flushed/apricot look (Blossom and Coral, respectively) with a hint of sheen. Lasting power is pretty good too - they seem to last all day!

Savvy seems to go on sale often at Priceline, especially with 3 for 2 sales so keep an eye out if you're keen! Check out the link for more info.

Have you tried any products by Savvy?

  3. Oh good question, I have no idea what the significance of baked blush is either.. I just thought baked eyeshadow/blush is a "style" of blush, bulging and metallic lol

    1. Oh maybe thats what it means! I have no idea! Maybe they put yeast in the shadows then put them in the oven to bake so they rise and bulge like bread? Haha!
