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
Bobbi Brown’s blush formula is supposed to feel silky and have long-lasting wear. The texture is very soft and smooth–it has a very finely-milled texture that applies with a mostly matte finish. What I really liked was how the matte finish didn’t make this a powdery product, which can often happen with drier, matte textures like this one. It doesn’t look dry or patchy on the cheeks either–it has a very soft, natural appearance without shimmer or sheen. I wore this last week to test out the wear, and this shade managed to last for a solid eight hours. I love that the blush can be used as a standalone product or popped out and inserted into a larger palette–even if it is a third to a half the size of your average blush.
It's an exceptionally nice matte blush--not dry, powdery, or chalky on, which is surprising, because it is a lighter shade! It's a soft color overall, so it's not going to produce a big pop of pink, but you can true-to-pan color if you so desire.
