Review: Bobbi Brown Blush in ‘Pale Pink’.


Hello, everybody. If you haven’t tried Bobbi Brown Powder Blushes, you need to (A) Save some money and (B) Go buy one as soon as possible!


THE BACKSTORY: Blushes are the reason why I fell in love with makeup the way I did. On days I wear makeup, my go-to look features a lot of cool tones – I am the oddball with neutral/cool undertones in a country filled with people who rock warm colours. That being said, people here rarely ever wear pinks. They opt for reds, oranges and peaches; almost as if it were a second nature for them. I previously featured this blush in this post and I’m still madly in love with it – it’s my everyday choice for a blusher, to be quite honest.



THE PRODUCT: When you hear the name ‘Pale Pink’, you may think of the sort of pink you associate with female newborns – a light, cool, powdery pink that captures the innocence of the infant. However, this ‘Pale Pink’ is a different story. It isn’t the pale pink you’d expect; it’s a bright and intimidating hue with bluish/purple undertones. No, don’t be scared. It’s beautiful, trust me. The blush itself is quite pigmented so you’re required to use a light hand with it and to tap the excess off your brush; unless of course, you’re like me and your go-to look is very blush heavy.

The blush is silky smooth and it blends out effortlessly. The finish, of course, is matte but the blush doesn’t make you face look flat; it somehow freshens it up and gives it a beautiful tinge.

What impressed me the most is definitely the longevity of the blush. Even after the end of a long, hard day, you’ll find a glimpse of the blush you dusted on in the morning.


I’m telling you this – Bobbi Brown products are heavy on the wallet. So, save up and build your collection bit by bit. Most of their products are amazing.


I kind of want to do a more in-depth post on my go-to makeup look; it is heavily inspired by Gyaru Queen Tsubasa Masuwaka’s makeup (I follow her on Instagram and her overall approach towards makeup and fashion is very interesting). Also, this style of makeup is gaining momentum on the interweb as “Igari Makeup”. Here’s hoping I make a post on it!


PRICE: 2890 INR (approx. $43; it retails for $28 in the US) for 3.7 grams.


AVAILABILITY: Bobbi Brown counters, Bobbi Brown, Sephora etc.
