I never met a blush I didn’t like; provided it meets my strict regulations. Firstly I never use blush (or bronzer) with any kind of sparkle in it, this looks completely unnatural but also shimmer has the ability to highlight flaws. I stick to irridescent highlighters and use blush that creates a soft, natural flush rather than a glittering glare that resembles a third degree burn covered in glitter.
After perusing the duty-free stores in Heathrow before I flew off to California I decided to waste some time around the Burberry stand. After hearing the Rosie Huntington-Whiteley swears by Burberry blush, I knew that I had to get one (sorry three).
These blushes don’t contain chunky shimmer but have a slight luminosity to them, they are incredibly pigmented but not at all chalky. These blend seamlessly and give you the quintessential English rose glow which is unusually hard to achieve. Generally pink blush on the apples of my cheeks makes me look like I’ve had an unfortunate run in with eczema however these Burberry blushes give the impression of a long country walk in the Cotswolds.
This gives a beautiful rosy (no pun intended) glow. This is the most pigmented of the three that I purchased and looks best when applied with a light hand. This would look outstanding on all skin tones, place it delicately on the apples of your cheeks for a perfect flush. This is a great product to look like health embodied!
A coral/pink colour which will be perfect for summer with sun kissed skin. This is another product which would look great on any skin tone and looks beautiful with bronzer and gold eyes.
Peony Blush is the most natural looking of the three, this is perfect to wear at the office or when you’re wearing (or aiming to appear like) minimal makeup. This probably wouldn’t show up on darker skin tones and would be absolutely beautiful on paler girls.
