Bobbi Brown's Pink & Red mini collection is a blast of happy colors exactly when we need them. It only includes cherry red and bright pink items: nail polish, matte lipstick, lip gloss and a stick blush, but that's more than enough to create a fresh look and perk up sallow winter face with the kind of classic effortless Bobbi Brown style. I chose to get the red blush and gloss: Sheer Cherry Sheer Color Cheek Tint (#10) and Cherry (#6) which I'll show you in the next post.
Bobbi Brown Sheer Cherry Sheer Color Cheek Tint (#10) is a stick blush with an almost gel-like texture that goes on quite sticky (I could live without that part) but dries down after 5-10 minutes. My guess is that those with oily skin will not enjoy this blush, unless they already tried Bobbi Brown's stick blushes and verified that they work for them. The texture is very light and indeed sheer (you can build it up a bit), but as long as you build your base makeup underneath it will stay put for at least 6 hours (more if you add powder blush on top).
Sheer Cherry #10 is a true red with maybe a hint of cool pink in the base. It's just bright enough without going the clown/doll route. I find it very flattering and wearable, and since the texture is so pliable it's easy to blend and make it as sheer as you need.
Bottom Line: Love. Sophie Agrees.
Bobbi Brown Sheer Cherry Sheer Color Cheek Tint ($26) is starting to arrive at the counters and online. Some department stores got the display and testers but have yet to receive this blush; other stores sell out of it quickly
