5 Soft Pink Blushes to Try

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?

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as it’s named: “copper.” It’s a muted copper with a gold sheen. The only shade I could think of that was similar was tokidoki Unicorno, which is more like an orange-gold. theBalm Mischievous Marissa is a bit like it, but it is an eyeshadow.  It delivers mostly opaque color coverage in a single pass, which is always a noteworthy feat for an eyeliner.  There’s a metallic sheen, but it’s not too reflective.

Beautiful Beginnings with Burberry

Beautiful Beginnings with Burberry

What was the first Burberry product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Burberry product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Burberry Beauty only debuted a little while ago, which makes it easier on my memory :)  The very first product I reviewed was Trench eyeshadow, which is my go-to brow highlighter.  It’s mostly matte, but it just matches my skin tone perfectly.  It’s soft, silky, and incredibly blendable.  The next two products I tried were both blushes, which are soft and lovely if you prefer a softer, more matte finish to your cheek color.  I remember being pleasantly surprised by the roll out of the beauty arm of the brand–they didn’t phone it in, and it was well-done.  Everything fit the brand to a T.
