Bobbi Brown Coral Shimmer Blush
Bobbi Brown Coral Shimmer Blush ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “soft coral.” It’s a medium-dark, orange-coral with gold shimmer. Burberry Blossom is similar but more matte, slightly more orange. MAC Supercontinental is pinker and a smidgen lighter. Tom Ford Lovelust is lighter and more shimmery. Chanel Tweed Brun Rose is lighter and less red.
It’s not too red, but if you have natural pink tones in your coloring, it might not be the best coral (you might look for something with a stronger peach hue). The texture is soft but not powdery, dry but not stiff. It blends easily and evenly, and it packs plenty of color payoff. You don’t have to worry about having to use the lightest hand with the most feathery blush to apply it, but you can easily go from sheer to dramatic without having to pile on the product. When I tested the shade, Coral lasted eight hours without fading.
