Burberry Sheer Blush--Hydrangea Pink

Surprise!  I'm back--I hope you didn't give up on me!  Last year I had some health issues crop up, but I'm back now and feeling great.  I hope to blog more regularly (lol, I know, I always say that!) and figure out a way to find something interesting to say.  Hope you're all doing well and had a great holiday season!  
My newest purchase from Nordstom is Hydrangea Pink--this is one of the new 2013 spring blushes from the Burberry Beauty line.  I love the texture of these so much!  They're so soft and creamy and blend like a dream.  Here is a picture of Hydrangea Pink (the lighting isn't the best--sorry!)
Some of the pictures I had seen made it look VERY vibrant and bright, but it is much more wearable (even though I have a huge weakness for crazy-bright blushes).  Here are some other blushes from my collection to compare it to--these seemed like the closest matches.
 And finally, here are some quick comparison swatches of these blushes.  Honestly, the Burberry has the best texture of any of them (a few had to be layered a bit to get some color).  Hydrangea Pink is a bit plummier than I expected, and leans cool, but not close to the blue-super cool blushes like Nars Gaiety or Chanel Turbulent.
Hopefully these pictures will help with your spring blush buying and I hope you have a healthy and happy 2013!
