Beauty Bakerie Insta Bake Aqua Glass Foundation, Insta Bake 3-in-1 Concealer and Spray Your Grace Baking Spray Makeup Setting Spray Review and Swatches

Not Sponsored: Hey Everybody! Beauty Bakerie came out with a NEW foundation, concealer and makeup setting spray. You may remember their Cake Mix Foundation and Cake Face Concealer! Both are still available. So why a new foundation and concealer? Cake Mix and Cake Face have a MATTE FORMULA and the new Insta Bake Foundation and Concealer have a DEWY FORMULA. I've tested all 3 and I'm ready to give my opinion! Lets get started or cooking.

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff) 

Beauty Bakerie | Insta Bake 3-in-1 Concealer in Jamsterdam - Bittersweet
I didn't really care for the Cake Face Concealer. Picking out a shade was tricky, because it oxidizes (gets darker). It also provided light coverage. Well, I felt like I was going through Deja Vu again, because the Insta Bake 3-in-1 Concealer does the same thing. I think its a LITTLE better than Cake Face, but I still feel it doesn't give me the coverage I need. You have to apply this to an area of your face and quickly work it in. I feel it turns from creamy to powdery and thins out. So its going to give you light to medium coverage. Again, it just didn't cover areas that needed to be covered. My Tarte Shape Tape does a better job covering imperfections and stays put (doesn't move around).

Beauty Bakerie | Insta Bake Aqua Glass Foundation in 339 N - Bittersweet
Beauty Bakerie came out with a new foundation called Insta Bake Aqua Glass Foundation. Its suppose to have a dewy formula. I was like...GREAT...I have dry skin! I tried it with both my Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base and Smashbox Primer. The foundation looked powdery and separated. I also didn't have any luck with applying it with a makeup sponge. So I removed it all and started again with a clean slate. This time I applied Smashbox's Primer Oil and used a makeup brush to work the foundation into my skin. Much better results, but then I looked a little shiny & oily. HaHaHa I also experienced some separation around the cheeks and nose area. I just felt like I was struggling with this foundation. I didn't care for the outcome. It didn't seem to lay right and sat atop my skin like a mask.

Beauty Bakerie | Spray Your Grace Baking Spray - Makeup Setting Spray - Not Sweet
I wish I could say there was a silver lining in all of this :( Beauty Bakerie came out with a Spray Your Grace Baking Makeup Setting Spray. Again, really cute packaging and prayer on the front. They say on their website that the "Head Baker In Charge wanted to add a pinch of vanilla just light enough to leave you craving a trip to your local pastry shop." Well a pinch it must be (and the baker should be fired), because it doesn't smell like baked ANYTHING. LOL SO DISAPPOINTING! I smell alcohol (chemical), but that's it. It gives a nice spritz. It does an ok job setting your makeup (but your makeup will still move around). But I don't even want to use this :( I definitely suggest you sticking with Urban Decay's makeup setting sprays. So unfortunately no winners here (at least with me). Save your coins.
