Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink Blush
Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink Blush ($25.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “warm baby pink.” It’s a light-medium strawberry pink with subtle blue undertnoes against my skin tone. It looked a little cool-toned in the pan, too. The finish was mostly matte. MAC Stay Pretty is lighter. NARS Angelika is a smidgen darker and bluer-toned. MAC Weekend Getaway is similar but cream. Tarte Dollface is lighter. It seemed darker than the original Pretty Pink that came in a palette previously.
The texture of Pretty Pink was on the dry side, but it is plenty pigmented; you can get true-to-pan color if desired, but not so much gets picked up on the brush that you can’t get a subtler look if that’s what you prefer. I recommend building up the layers, because the drier texture made this blush less blendable than ideal once applied to the skin. I liked that it seemed to melt against the skin, though, and the finish looked wonderfully natural on. Pretty Pink wore well for seven hours, and after eight, there was some slight fading around the edges.
