Another coral blush for autumn? Why not?! You might or might not know that I have a good collection of coral blushes already, and I added a couple more this season (including Guerlain Madame Rougit and Chanel Présage). To round this year’s coral obsession off, I’m showing you Bobbi Brown Pink Coral Blush from the Rich Chocolate Collection!
Bobbi Brown blushes come in the same square black compact with a clear top as the single eyeshadows. Bobbi Brown also offers palettes for you to organize the blushes and eyeshadows in.
Bobbi Brown Pink Coral Blush (31. Limited edition. 3.7 grams/0.13 oz. RRP in Belgium: 28 euros) is on the pink side of coral. It has a matte finish and very finely-milled texture. It is so finely-milled that it borders on powdery. Fortunately it doesn’t look as such on the cheeks.
The finely-milled texture of Pink Coral makes it very easy to blend, but it takes a little layering for it to show up on my skin tone (NC25). It might not work as well if you are past medium in skin tone. However, if you are fair and are constantly worried about overdoing your blush, it might be a good option. It wears well for the most part of the work day, but it would look a little faded by the end of it.

Bottom line: If you have always wanted to try a coral blush but aren’t too sure how it will work for you, take a look at Bobbi Brown Pink Coral. The large dose of pink makes it less intimidating even for those who are not familiar with corals. Since it blends so easily, you can hardly go wrong with it! The texture seems powdery when swatched, but it doesn’t look powdery on.
Have you tried a Bobbi Brown blush? Pink Coral is the first for me!
