Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tints

Sunday, January 17, 2010

By know you all know I'm a blush whore, they're my favourite make up product. I've been meaning to do a post on the Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tints for ages. I bought Sheer Pink a couple of months ago and have used it a few times and have since acquired Sheer Raspberry and Sheer Blackberry. I credit Milan Rouge for getting me into these.

I thought I'd share some swatches which hopefully may be useful should you considering them as a purchase

Packaged in a swivel-up stick for convenience, they glide easily onto my skin and I like the sheer, luminous sheen they leave. However, I need to rub firmly and approx 4 times to get a good flush of colour. I find I can blend them easily but I don't like that I can still feel their stickiness when I absent mindedly touch my cheeks afterwards.

I can't see myself using these in warmer weather as I think they're likely to slide right off my face in the heat. I think those very oily skin may find these difficult to work with.

I've been alternating between all three recently and find their lasting power is just okay. After approx 4-5 hours I need a touch up but when I layer a teeny bit of powder blush over the top, they last longer. I actually prefer the finish with powder blush on top as they have the tendency to look greasy if not blended properly.

The shades in this range (there are six in total) are lovely and a few universally compliment all skintones. Minor gripes aside, I find that they give a very natural flush of colour to the cheeks which is flattering and easy to wear.

I'd planned a FOTD to go with this post exhibiting one of the blushes in action, but as per usual, my Sunday resulted in not a scrap of make up being applied to my face, so sorry!

I'll do one tomorrow though and I bet you can hardly contain yourselves at the thought! Hahaha!

How much are they? £16.50
Where can I find them?

I love cheek stains as well, so these sound fun, although the stickiness makes me think that they will be like the tarte cheek stains which I just reviewed. I'm only meh on those.

I can safely say that sheer raspeberry is my fave but they all look so lovely. Not too impressed with the sticky feeling it leaves though


Love the colours!
