Bobbi Brown‘s Sheer Color Cheek Tint is part of the brand’s summer 2009 Nautical collection. The cream-based stick blusher is available in six shades, and today I am featuring Sheer Coral.
Sheer Coral is a warm pink that is not too peachy or coral, and it has warm-toned shimmering particles. The shade should suit those with a slightly warmer complexion and is definitely more of a summer shade.
It goes on very sheer but it can be layered for slightly more intensity. When layered, the blusher creates a very dewy and shimmery finish, which might not suit those with oily skin.
It has a cream (not cream-to-powder) consistency and is best worn over a liquid foundation and under a powder foundation. If you wear it under a powder foundation, make sure you gently press the foundation onto the area where the blusher is applied. If you sweep the foundation on, the powder is likely to bind with the cream blusher and cake. (A cream-to-powder or a mousse blusher is slightly easier to be used with a powder foundation in this respect, and I also find that I can get away with a very gentle application over a powder foundation.)
If you want a quick healthy glow, this is a good product to go for as it is best suited for a casual no-makeup (particularly no-foundation) look. It is also worth considering if you are looking for a sheer but very shimmery blusher.
