Bobbi Brown Shimmer Powder Blush--Washed Rose

Today's blush (and my final Bobbi Brown) is a lovely, shimmery rose.  It's Washed Rose, which is seen in the lower right of this picture.

It is darker and more brown than Pink Sugar, but Washed Rose has more of a sheen, rather than the sparkles of Pink Sugar.  The texture is very nice, not quite as smooth as the matte blushes, but still nicer than many shimmery blushes.
In the picture below, you can see it on the far right.  I think this would work for many people, perhaps not super warm skin tones. 

The next blushes I'll be working on will be my Burberry.  I only have 5, so those should go pretty fast.  I love hearing from you, even though I don't always respond.  Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Bobbi Brown Powder Blush--Poppy

Hey!  Sorry that I was missing for a few weeks!  Anyway, up next from my Bobbi Brown collections is Poppy.  BB's Poppy is a deep red blush.  I would call it a warm dark brick color.  This shade is a little bit hard for me to wear, but I think it looks amazing on warmer and darker skintones.  Here it is in the pan (it's on the bottom left of the pic).

and here is the swatch (it is second from the right)

The texture is very smooth and pigmented, as with all the Bobbi Brown powder blushes that I've tried.  The non-shimmer versions (which Poppy is) are smoother than the Shimmer Powders, but that is true for all brands, in my experience.  Up next is my last Bobbi Brown blush--Washed Rose.
Thanks for your patience!!
