Me: “I got this really pretty blush from Bobbi Brown!”
Significant other: “… he makes makeup?”
Me: *rolls eyes* Yes, the lead singer of New Edition is into the high-end cosmetics business. That makes perfect sense.
Silly boyfriend talk aside, the makeup artist Bobbi (with an i) Brown makes some amazing products. This blush is no exception.
It’s the Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink.
Website description: Silky formula glides on smoothly and offers a matte finish with long-lasting wear.
Color: A bright cool toned pink with a matte finish.
Formula: Pigmented! It takes a careful application, use a fluffy natural fibre brush to apply. It looks beautiful on the apples of the cheeks and blended out toward the temples.
Longevity: 9 hours.
Who would like this: This looks great on everyone, I’ve used it on several clients. Whether your skin is fair, cool, warm dark, Pale Pink seems to find a way to make you glow. It looks absolutely stunning on light african american skin (think, Beyonce).
Who wouldn’t like this: Someone looking for a sheer coverage, neutral, cheek product.
Overall: This blush isn’t for the faint of hearts, if you don’t like the way it looks in the pan then you certainly will not like it on your face. It’s very pigmented, it’s imperative to use a light hand when applying. Even though the color may look intimidating, it had sheer to buildable coverage (with the right brush). It’s unique color (why is it called pale pink??), longevity, and formula is something that’s definitely worth checking out.
The Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink is $25.00 for 0.13oz. It is available at any Bobbi Brown retailer or counter, or here online.
Have you tried any of Bobbi’s blushes? I’m really interested in her Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks, I think it may be my next Bobbi purchase.
