I like blushes – they help you achieve fresh and healthy look with very little effort. Of course, it’s important not to overdo your makeup with blush but with a bit of practice blush can become a vital and easy part of your normal makeup routine. There are blushes for every occasion and today I’ll talk about my favorite everyday blush – Bobbi Brown Silky Matte Blush.
I have been looking for a matte blush in nude pink. Bobbi Brown hit the spot. The case is small and sleek – convenient for travel. It opens and closes easily (unlike Hourglass, for example). Basically, it’s an ideal compact blush. Apparently, you can also assemble it into palettes that are sold separately but I am happy using it individually. This blush is pricey — $27.
I got this blush in color Slopes 17 – “flushed pink”. It’s mild matte pink which gives you natural, healthy blush. It’s a powder blush so you need to apply it with a brush – I use MUFE angled blush brush – it works well for me. One of the best things about this blush is that it doesn’t have any shimmer. Don’t get me wrong, I love shimmer but during the day I don’t want it, especially in winter when my whole makeup is more toned-down than usually. This shade should complement pretty much every complexion – it’s very neutral.
This blush provides long-lasting wear – I was wearing it to the beach every day and it did it job very well. For an evening I’d still recommend a different blush (my favorites are Hourglass and Dior), but in daylight Bobbi Brown looks just perfect.
The formula of this blush is amazing – it glides on very smoothly. Also, I like that you don’t pick too much of it with the brush, so you it’s easy to build up the color gradually. It is not highly pigmented which is actually good in this case.
Overall, I really like it. It is exactly what I was looking for in my everyday low-key blush: it’s matte, it gives me fresh, healthy and natural look and the compact is very convenient.
