Bobbi Brown Blush Review
Pigmented, blendable, and long wearing are the best things about Bobbi Brown Blush. I do wish there were more finishes, as this blush only comes in matte.

Bobbi Brown Blush gives cheeks a naturally flushed look.
A pop of color on cheeks for a healthy glow is one of my favorite parts of a makeup look. It brings the right amount of color to the complexion for a sheer blush to a vivid pop. It can entirely change your look and the focal point of your makeup look. With Bobbi Brown Blush, your cheeks are instantly flushed with a matte finish, or you can top off with a highlighter for an added glow (my favorite option). I do wish these blushes came in more finishes because I don’t always want that flat, matte look. Let’s jump into Bobbi Brown Blush Review.
Promises vs. Performance: A little goes a long way with Bobbi Brown Blush.
Want to replicate the look of naturally flushed cheeks? Bobbi Brown Blush promises just that. This long wearing, matte cheek color applies onto cheeks smoothly for a seamless look. The buildable pigment allows you to create a range of looks, from a subtle flush to bold pop of color. With 11 shades of pinks and peaches, you’re sure to find your perfect cheek flush.
My Review Thoughts on Bobbi Brown Blush
Let’s begin the review with the following, Bobbi Brown Blush is über pigmented. Lightly dab your brush into the compact, tap off any excess, and swirl softly onto your cheeks. Start with a light-handed application and build to your desired intensity. This powder blush is finely-milled and blends onto cheeks for a seamless flush of color. It layers and builds well without getting patchy or settling into pores and lines. It does have a matte finish, so for any extra glow you’ll need to dust a highlighter over top.
How It Compares: If you like matte blush, this is perfect for that. But, there’s others with more finishes.
During the review and wear test Bobbi Brow Blush was pigmented, blendable, and long wearing. It applied smoothly without being patchy or accentuating imperfections. This blush is buildable, but you’ll want to start with a light hand because it is super pigmented. The finely-milled powder doesn’t set into pores or lines and gives cheeks a soft focus look. But, drawback is that it’s only available in a matte finish and the shades only span the pink and peach family.
For more variety and the same (if not better) performance, I recommend NARS Blush. Coming in 26 shades spanning matte, shimmer, and sheer finishes, there’s definitely something for everyone in the collection. The pigment is buildable from sheer to a bold pop of color. It applies to cheeks effortlessly, blurring out pores and giving a soft focus effect. You truly can’t beat NARS Blush. Plus, it’s home the iconic Orgasm shade that works for virtually all skin tones.
