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?

Video Review: MAC & Marcel Wanders 2 Collection – First Impressions & Swatches

It was so very strange to see MAC partner with Marcel Wanders again, and it felt like it had (or has) very little fanfare associated with it!   The video features my first impressions of the products as well as swatches.  You can find reviews on the lipglosses and lipsticks posted in full on the blog already 🙂

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.

Giorgio Armani describes the formula as waterproof/water-resistant (they use both terms, even though they mean different things), soft, creamy, and intense.  The first thing you notice when you use it is how utterly soft and malleable the pencil tip is.  It’s so, so soft that it glides across the lash line with ease–no tugging or skipping.  Despite the creaminess of the formula, it doesn’t smudge throughout the day.  This shade wore better than #4 for me, actually, because it looked 95% as good after eight hours as it did when I first applied it.  I splashed my eye with water and lightly pressed, and I didn’t find that the eyeliner was disturbed, so it should make it through intact if your eyes water a bit.
