Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel is darker. Burberry Misty is a touch warmer. See comparison swatches.
Filled with Desire is a shade that is best for fair complexions, as the color in the pan is about what you get when swatched, which is just a lighter shade that won’t show up well on darker skin tones. The texture was soft, finely-milled, but it was somewhat powdery to the touch. Once applied and blended into the skin, I didn’t notice any powderiness on the skin, and the blush had a very subtle sheen that was luminous but not frosted. This shade lasted eight hours well on my skin and looked slightly faded after nine hours of wear.
