5 Soft Pink Blushes to Try

Originally, I was going to pick five favorite pink blushes, but pink is such a popular blush hue that I thought it would be better to split it into two separate posts: one for softer, subtler pinks (think light to medium) and a second one for bolder, more fuchsia-like pinks. Thanks to reader Sirinthorn for today’s topic! These are designed to be truer pinks, but it’s on my list of posts-to-do for more of a neutral-pink-beige blush roundup :)

  1. Bobbi Brown Nude Pink — blue-based light-medium pink
  2. Burberry Peony — soft pink with yellow undertones
  3. Chanel Pink Explosion — subtly cool-toned light-medium pink
  4. NARS Gaiety — really cool-toned pink
  5. MAC So Sweet, So Easy — pale pink

What’s your favorite soft pink blush?

    I’ve been trying to find a dupe for Pink Explosion after I chickened out of it due to the price at its release. Any hope for someone still lemming after it besides swaps & sales?

    Hey Christine! The Burberry Peony is gorgeous, any dupes that you know of?

  3. Every beauty blog I read is egging me on to buy Gaiety, and I’m such a weakling! LOL.

    I love Gaiety, Angelika, Rose Ecrin, So sweet, so easy, Rosy Glow, Bella Bamba, Lovely rose from Clarins, Horizon, Catalina from Cargo, and so many others. I never tried Bobbi Brown or Illamasqua but I’ll certainly will !

    MAC Subtle Breeze from the Naturally collection :D

    I have two of these pinks, Burberry Peony and Chanel Pink Explosion. I’m wondering do I need NARS Gaiety? I do love NARS blushes!

    Right now NARS Gaiety is my absolute fav pink blush. I wasn’t sure it would work on me, since it leans so cool, but I get compliments every single time I wear it. And not just “oh, nice blush” type compliments, but comments on how fresh and radiant I look… They may not know I look that way because of my blush, but trust me, it’s the blush!

    I absolutely love my Guerlain blush in #5 but I think it looks similar to Benefit Hervana which is much more affordable!

  13. My favorite soft pink is MAC’s Coygirl, its soft pink on my NC45 skin

    What do you think about MAC PinK Swoon ;) ?
    I’m loving your top 5 articles by the way!

    Hi Christine,
    Can you please do that neutral-pink-beige blush round up you mentioned in this post? I’m currently trying to find a neutral pink beige type blush for eveyday use and would love to hear your thoughts on good ones.
