My Holy Grail Blushers - Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown Blushers

Hello Beauties I hope you're all having a good week! I wanted to carry on my little Holy Grail series today with one of my favourite makeup items - blusher. As you can guess from the title and the fact that I've featured them on the blog a fair few times my favourite formula has to be the Bobbi Brown blushers. I love the colour range and I feel like they are very different to other brands in that they tend to be very bright in the pan, but when you apply them they look so fresh and give the most gorgeous pop of colour. I use these on myself but they are also pretty much the only blushers I keep in my kit.

The first Bobbi Brown blusher I ever bought was the shade Apricot (the middle shade in the 3 pan palette). It is a gorgeous bright pink that has a deep coral tone to it. It always looks scary in the pan, like it would give you massive clown cheeks, but I cannot recommend it enough for a fresh and radiant colour - this looks especially good with a tan and a beautiful golden highlighter paired with it.

Another one of my favourites is Pale Pink (the one in the pan by itself on the heart dish) - another one that looks almost fluorescent before applying it. I cannot recommend this shade enough, it is a stunning blue based pink that gives a very youthful glow to the cheeks. It looks really pretty on lots of different skin tones and believe it or not it goes with so many different eye looks, which makes it a great blusher for bridal makeup or just an every day blush (see this post if you want to see it in action). If you want something a bit more subtle I would recommend Peony (up and right from Pale Pink on the heart dish), which still has that pretty fresh pop of colour but has a little bit more of a warmer tone to it.

Bobbi Brown Blush Swatches - Peony, Pale Pink, Nectar, Apricot, Nude Peach and Pink Coral

These are swatches of some of my most loved Bobbi blushers; I'm sorry guys...... I am so bad at swatch pictures! Unfortunately Apricot and Pink Coral have come out in the swatches looking almost identical but in real life I would say Apricot is ever so slightly warmer, whereas Pink Coral has a stronger pink tone to it, also has some flecks of shimmer which you can't see in the swatch. Nectar, by the way, is one of my go-to shades when I am struggling to pick one - this honestly goes with everything!

Quite a lot of the Bobbi blushers are matte which doesn't bother me, as you can always apply highlighter to the top of the cheekbones if you want a bit of shimmer. The matte finish means they literally stay all day and you can get a whole days wear out of these; they never seem to fade which I find with some other blushers. The high pigmentation of these mean that they will also last you for ages - you can see some of the shades are extremely well loved but I haven't hit pan on any of them yet, despite using them almost every day. For me they are well worth the money and I would definitely say you won't be disappointed if you buy one!

What are your favourite blushers?
