Review: Bobbi Brown’s “Pale Pink” Blush

For many years, Bobbi Brown has been my favorite cosmetics brand. The look personified by her models is that of a polished, ladylike career woman. Her company crafts and markets natural, “my-face-but-better” makeup — consistent with Bobbi’s unique beauty philosophy — which is always office-appropriate.

One of the flagship products from her line is blush, particularly her classic blush in the shade “Pale Pink.”

It is a vibrant, cool-toned pink blush which looks downright scary in the pan, but which imparts that healthy “just-in-from-the-cold” flush and reminds me of dainty porcelain doll cheeks. It is a totally matte blush, with no hint of shimmer. Many prefer this sort of blush finish since it looks more natural — consistent with Bobbi’s philosophy, of course 🙂

The blush lasted all day.

As if you needed any more temptation to grab this blush, I have one more interesting tidbit.

“Pale Pink” imparts a royal flush — literally!

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, purchased all Bobbi Brown products for her wedding day makeup and was even instructed by Hannah Martin, a prestigious Bobbi Brown makeup artist in the UK.

You guessed it — Kate wore this blush to the royal wedding!

Below is a face chart released by the company, detailing the exact look and products used by the duchess that day:
