It’s no secret that the Sephora MicroSmooth Baked collection of blushes, bronzers and highlighters rocks- every single product I’ve tried with the baked formula has been incredible! I was so excited to see that this summer, Sephora threw them all together in a single compact to create these Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Sculpting Trios ($20 USD / $23 CAD)- available in four shade varities. Each compact is divided into three equal parts, featuring a matte bronzer, a satin blush and a shimmery highlighter.
I might be a little biased, but this compact in Sweet is totally the best one (I haven’t tried the others, but these three shades are just so perfect)! When I first saw the compact, I was scared it was going to be shimmer city- but after close inspection, I noticed that the powders actually had different textures (yes!!!) which is exactly what you want from these three products. The bronzer is a deep golden bronze (a tad on the warm side), the blush is a beautiful mid-tone rose and the highlighter is a pale champagne pink.
The pigmentation is lovely, the texture is smooth and blendable and all three shades work in such beautiful harmony. The only thing I’d change about this compact would be the proportions of the powders- I would have liked to see 1/2 of the pan dedicated to the bronzer (which is a little hard to grab with a large fluffy brush) and 1/4 to each the blush and highlighter, of which much less is needed anyways. Either way, the value is incredible and it’s a good start.
This product would make for an excellent travel buddy- taking the place of bronzer, blush and highlighter all in a compact that can fit in your pocket.
