Burberry Beauty Blush
Burberry Peony (04) Blush

Burberry Peony (04) Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a pale neutral pink that can be sheered out for just a hint of color or layered for a more intense, doll-like look.  This is definitely the softest of the three blushes I’ve seen (the other two being Russet and Cameo), and I think it best suits light to light-medium skin tones, with medium skin tones seeing a soft look overall.  I think deeper skin tones will find it doesn’t do much to their skin tone without a good amount of layering.

The texture is soft and buttery but a little dusty, though it still melts onto the skin and looks as natural as can be.

    Nice, but I like Cameo more :) Are these blushes really 40 dollar worth? I like them really, so maybe I buy one..

    • I really like them, so I don’t mind paying for one or two myself, but it really just depends on your budget/style. If it’s something you’ll only wear once, then probably not, but if it’s something you’d wear often, it could be worth it.

    You are right. This does look amazing on you. I can totally understand why it would be a favourite.

    It is pricey. However, if I see a product with a serious price tag, test it and I love what I see, I sometimes fork out and buy it. Especiallly a good blush, foundation and mascara.

    I really like how this one looks. The blush looks so soft and smooth in the pan. I think I like the one more than the previous shade. It looks a bit more natural to me.

  13. Grace

    Haha, this color looks like my Sephora Blush Me! Mono in N4 Peche Tendere.

    It’s exactly the same but 12 bucks. The shade looks pretty on you!

  14. Ameera

    I love the color and texture, and it looks absolutely gorgeous on you, Christine. I just won’t dish out $42 on this, when I already have about 40 blushes, lol.

  15. Jen

    Thanks for the swatch Christine. How would you compare this to Chanel Pink Explosion in terms of feel and wear time?

  16. Ioanna

    Is it like Pink swoon by mac?? It is looks lovely:)

  17. Sophie

    Christine you look absolutely gorgeous. Your make-up really reminds me of the 1950s style :)

  18. $42 for a barely there pink is outrageous. No thank you.

  19. Sunshine

    This is stunning on you Christine! I love this shade. It seems the same color as my all time favorite Maybelline blush in Pure Rose. I use it over MAC’s Dainty for a longer lasting result and it’s just gorgeous!

    Hi Christine,

    I’ve been doing burberry research all day and I realllly love this blush but I wasn’t sure if it will fit my skin. Was wondering if you could give some advice! I use Chanel’s Vitalumiere fluide de teint 05 :)

  21. I think you’ve convinced me I need Burberry blushes in my life..just one lol
