Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Pink Coral

Hey, dear readers!

Been a rainy afternoon today. I like the rain. I just don't like it when I have things to do and they get cancelled because of it. Grrr...

So to make me feel better, I will make a swatch post and I guess a mini review of a product that I have been using quite a lot this past few days...

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Pink Coral

*Clap clap clap*

I bought this last month (if I remember correctly) from fellow blogger, Pammy, of J'adore Rougit.

When I saw that she was selling this, I googled it and fell in love with it!
It's peachypink!! Haha! It's a warm pink shade which I looooove and usually go for when I'm choosing a blush. ♥

Plus, it's Bobbi Brown! This is my first Bobbi Brown blush. I have been hearing so many positive reviews about their blushes that I just have to try it. Buying a brand new one is quite too much for me. I don't usually splurge my savings for blushes. The makeup I don't mind buying that's expensive are foundations since it is the 'foundation' of your makeup. Haha! And yeah... I have bad skin. :P

So on to the review:

When I opened the box, this is what I see:

 Very classy packaging and you can see the product as well. I like this kind of packaging since you don't have to open them one by one just to look what color they are... specially if you haven't memorized the shades yet. And I like that the packaging is not bulky so it can fit my kikay kit!

The back of the product

Some info and ingredients of the blush:

and here's a description of the shimmer blushes from the website:

Silky formula glides on smoothly and evenly. Shades can be used individually or assembled into our palettes (sold separately). Apply on the apples of cheeks using the Blush Brush, blending up into the hairline, then downwards to soften. Finish with a pop of brighter blush, applied just on the apples of cheeks.
Shimmer Blush in Washed Rose featured as a 'Best Beauty Buy' in 'InStyle' Magazine (May 2010).

And here's a closeup shot of it!
See the shimmers? Pretty! ♥♥♥

and a swatch on my arm

The shimmers are very fine. The blush is uber pigmented. I have to tap my brush so I won't put too much on my cheeks. The product isn't chalky at all.

Here's a shot of me wearing the blush:

I love it on me. I look healthy! It's sort of natural looking. :)
It's also long lasting! It lasts on me the whole day!

Since I'm so in-love with the product, I might try and save up to buy another blush from Bobbi Brown. I might try the blushes without the shimmer next. Not sure which shade yet though. :

If you also plan on buying any product from Bobbi Brown, it's available locally at Rustan's Makati and Rustan's Shangri-la. :)
