Bobbi Brown Desert Rose takes this weeks theme of roses in another direction. Instead of a reddish-pink, Desert Rose is a mauve-brown pink color. It looks very cool in the pan, but there is some warmth that comes through, making it more neutral.
The first thing I noticed with I swatched it was how smooth the powder was. It's very finely milled and nicely pigmented. Desert Rose glides onto the skin like a dream, it's really lovely! The color on my very pale/cool skin is a brownish mauve and when it is blended in it looks like a very natural nude color.
It's also totally matte, which makes it perfect for work, or when you just need a simpler cheek color. I love the Bobbi Brown palette system, it makes it easy to pick a blush for the day and even pop one out to carry in my purse for touch ups or take on vacation.
Tomorrow's rose blush is from Laura Mercier--Rose Petal, totally different from the first two roses. It's fun to see how different companies interpret the color rose.
