Burberry Hydrangea Pink Light Glow Natural Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a darkened raspberry pink with a barely-there satin sheen. Tom Ford Narcissist is pinker, brighter. MAC Supernova is more shimmery. MAC Amazon Princess is darker, more plum.

This spring, Burberry’s bringing intense colors to their otherwise more muted/softer range–and boy is Hydrangea Pink pigmented!  It’s rich in color and a little goes a long, long way. Just a light tap of the brush on the powder yields intense color on the cheek, so I definitely recommend using a light-hand and a feathery brush when working with it initially.  Because of it’s soft, velvety texture–so smooth it almost feels like a cream–it is blendable once on.  When I wore this shade, it lasted for well for nine hours with no signs of fading.

Cooler complexions should see a bigger difference between this and Coral Pink, the other shade launched for spring.  When blended out on my skin tone, I found them just barely different.  The more extreme you are in your cool/warm undertones, the more likely you’ll be able to tease out the nuances in undertone when these are sheered out. (The more intensely you wear these, the more you’ll see the difference between the two, as well.)

I’m a sucker for anything with the word “hydrangea” in it (Madonna and I might not be able to get past that) and this looks like the first product from Burberry, beyond maybe Military Red, that is really throwing out the sirens lure. Don’t get me wrong- the packaging is gorgeous but I like significant pigmentation in my products and much of Burberry Beauty seems to emphasize subtlety. However, this is calling my name… I bugged the Sephoras SA about getting Burberry but they tried to tempt me with Marc Jacobs beauty. We shall see.

I so wish Sephora would carry Burberry, or at least more stores would carry it, because it’s just not that readily accessible to most people and it’s such a shame. I highly, highly recommend the blush, though, or the lip glosses.

Oh wow I’ve waited for a shade like this from Burberry and finally got a good reason to buy one of the blushes!

Would you say it will look good on very fair skin (NC15)?

I have a question. Off-topic but… when people compare their skin tone with MAC foundation, what pressed powder exactly are they referring to? Because I know I wear have a different shade for studio fix and the sheer stuff. I hope you would respond to this inquiry because this would really enlighten me in a huge way! Thank you!

Perhaps you’re taking about the two different numbering systems? The NC/NW range seen in most of the face products (Studio Fix Fluid, Studio Scuplt), and the C/N range (Studio Fix Powder, Face & Body)?

Example: I’m NC15 in Studio Fix Fluid, and C1 in Face in Body. I would imagine if I were NW15, I would be N1, instead.

Jennifer Avatar

Yes, thank you. 🙂 So is it right for me to assume that, more often than not, they are actually talking about their shade in studio fix foundation? 🙂

This looks lovely on you Christine. I don’t know if I would feel confident applying this blush though. I like blushes that are more natural and the pigmentation of this definitely scares me that I’m going to turn myself into a clown. When my technique of applying blush gets better will definitely have this in mind.

Yes!!! I absolutely love this one. I see it’s not listed as a dupe, but I’ll go ahead and ask anyway: how do you think Mac Prom Princess compares to this one? I already have Hydrangea Pink but Prom Princess has me really intrigued (“Archie’s Girls” launches in March here) so I would like to know if I can justify owning both. Thank you in advance!

I love it! But then, I’ve never met a pink blush I didn’t like. 😉 It may be a bit too pigmented for me, but I’ve got three months to sit on it and decide, so we’ll see. *sigh* Burberry, you are killing me this year.
