Burberry Coral Pink2b

Spring 2013 brings Burberry Coral Pink Blush ($42) a warm, deep rose with a touch of coral. Like Burberry Hydrangea Pink (reviewed here, also released for Spring 2013), Coral Pink is a very intense color that requires care during application. In the photographs in this post, we used Nars Yanchiyo brush to ensure light, controllable color.

Coral Pink and Hydrangea Pink look similar in the pan. When applied to cheeks, Coral Pink is warmer. 

I have no coral blushes remotely similar to Burberry Coral Pink. The closest that I found is Guerlain Series Noir Rouge G blush with the colors mixed. Here are swatches of Burberry Coral Pink, Burberry Hydrangea Pink, MAC Hipness, and Guerlain Rouge G:

More swatches of Burberry Coral Pink and Hydrangea Pink are here. Here, Liz is wearing Burberry Coral with Burberry Mallow Pink (also new for Spring 2013). She is also wearing Nars Dark Rite under her eyes, and a touch of Nars Corcovado (Spring 2013) adding a touch of gold to the undereye area.

Both colors will work on cool and warm skin types. That said, Hydrangea Pink will be more dramatic on warmer skin tones. If you have warm toned skin, Coral Pink will give you a vibrant but more natural look compared to Hydrangea Pink.

Both blushes are a welcome addition to my collection. Although I love Burberry’s other blushes, these vibrant colors are lovely, gorgeous colors that brighten for spring.

Burberry Hydragea Pink1b

Spring 2013 brings Burberry Hydrangea Pink blush ($42), a beautiful rich pink fuchsia color. Unlike some of the Burberry’s previous shades, this color is bright and intense.

We found that it was cooler than Burberry Coral Pink (also released for Spring 2013, review forthcoming). The shades are different enough when worn to warrant having both. For the record, Liz prefers Coral Pink and I prefer Hydrangea Pink.

Here is Burberry Hydrangea Pink on Liz, together with Burberry Pink Sweet Pea Lip Glow Natural Lip Gloss (review forthcoming). We had to apply this carefully with a soft brush (Nars Yanchiyo) as the pigment is very bright. Fair warning–if you go after this Burberry blush with your standard blush brush, be prepared for some seriously bright color.

Here, Liz has used the new Burberry Gold Pearl Eyeshadow on her lid (review forthcoming), together with two of the softer colors from the Burberry Pink Taupe eyeshadow quad. She’s also using NARS Corcovado Eyeshadow Pencil under her eyes (from the Nars Spring 2013 collection).

Here are some swatches of Burberry Hydrangea Pink, compared with Chanel Ultra Rose, Burberry Coral Pink, Chanel Tumulte, Tom Ford Narcissist and MAC Pro Full Fuchsia.

Burberry Hydrangea Pink

Although you can see that there are several out there in the ballpark, none are precise duplicates. Burberry Hydrangea is a fabulous, finely milled blush that seems to be more satin compared to the more intense, shimmery Tom Ford Narcissist. It’s much deeper than Chanel Ultra Rose and Tumulte, and more sophisticated and soft compared to MAC Full Fuchsia.

As I love colors like Burberry Hydrangea Pink, this was something that I’ve wanted since I saw the promotional images. Burberry delivered an edgy color that is definitely worth a look.
