Bobbi Brown Nude Pink Blush
Bobbi Brown Nude Pink Blush ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as the “palest pink.” While new, it’s being added to the permanent range, so you don’t have to worry about it selling out! 🙂 I would describe it as a blue-based, cotton candy pink–that’s just slightly muted. NARS Gaiety is much cooler and bluer. NYX English Rose is less blue-toned. MAC So Sweet, So Easy is lighter. Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink is warmer. Urban Decay Quickie is a little brighter. Chanel Tweed Fuchsia is warmer.
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.
