Swatching Bobbi Brown’s Beach collection brought in a slew of email requests for swatches of the brand’s permanent items — readers, you’re absolutely right.
In a nutshell, Bobbi Brown’s blushes are fantastic. Â I liked an embarrassingly large number of shades, and if you want matte blushes, Bobbi has plenty for you to choose from. The blushes are $22, and you have the option of popping the pans out of the compacts to assemble your own custom palette.
I also learned that Bobbi just discontinued three shades — Rose (3), Soft Pink (7), and Poppy (19) — so if you love one of these, if you’ve been meaning to buy it, don’t wait.
Sand Pink is a mauvey, dusty pink. Tawny (love) is a warm (peached, slightly brown) rose. Rose is a warm pink — of course I would love a discontinued shade.
Almond reminds me of MAC’s peachy Prim and Proper (but it’s not limited edition!). Plum is wined rose. Apricot swatched surprisingly pink (given its name; I expected more peach. It’s like strawberry candy). Â Soft Pink is quite plummy and has a bit of a sheen to it.
And here’s a bonus pic: blushes 1â€“6 swatched together. There are 19 non-shimmer blushes in all, and I had trouble deciding how to divide them up. These swatches were made with a slightly lighter hand, so I thought you’d want to see them.
