2 Baked Highlighters
Makeup is usually made by pressing pigments together with binding chemicals. A baked eyeshadow, blush, or highlighter, on the contrary, is literally a cream which is baked into a smooth, powdery solid by applying heat. Baked in the sun and inside ovens, these silky, velvety products shot to the forefront of beauty counters a few years ago, but few have actually figured out their benefits.
Baked makeup often has better pigment
Baked makeup doesn’t have a lot of chemicals and additives since it doesn’t need binding like pressed makeup, making the concentration of actual pigment much higher due to the absence of filler ingredients. Hence, baked products are less chalky than pressed ones and tend to have concentrated colour payoff. So, in terms of texture, baked products are easier to work with. However, it is unclear if that means they last longer, though most people suggest they do.
These products can be used wet or dry
Due to the fact that these cosmetics are originally creams and liquids, wet application is possible with them, making them very versatile. Now, wet application would yield messy results with regular pressed eyeshadow. With baked ones, it intensifies the shimmer, color, and overall vibrancy of the product while also setting it into the skin in a way that it lasts longer.
So, if you want to add some drama, all you need to do is wet your brush before dipping it into the product. Of course, you can always get the usual natural and soft eyeshadow look when you use these products dry. This gives you the advantage of using the same product in two different ways, depending on your needs.

These powders apply best when using a brush – and can be placed in different areas of the face. The glow from these 2 baked highlighters is not intense more like a gentle sparkle. But to get them to be extra – remember you can apply them wet for the ‘drama’.
These 2 baked highlighters are slightly different – one has a pinkish undertone and the other is more neutral. The pinkish undertone can be used on light skin toned people whereas the neutral undertone would be great for darker skin tones.
We have other baked products such as the Terracota bronzer also from Pierre Rene is a top seller and the packaging is stunning.
