I went to Hongkong last week for a very short trip. When I saw this blush in Burberry Beauty counter in Hongkong, I immediately swatch it and decided to grab these two. It is very hard for me to decide one blush between these two especially it is retailing at a cheaper price in Hongkong compared to Singapore. I have not seen Burberry Spring 2013 products in Singapore, but the SA told me that it should be available in March.
I am so excited to share my Burberry Spring 2013 picks. I am a big fan of Burberry blushes, hence it’s so exciting for me to see that Burberry is releasing two new shades for spring 2013. Burberry has one of the nicest blush texture, it’s matte yet it blends very well on the skin.
I won’t be talking into details about the packaging of these blushes as it’s the same as other Burberry blushes.
Firstly, I’m going to talk about Hydrangea Pink.
Hydrangea Pink is a fuchsia pink. This blush is very pigmented. You need to be careful when applying this blush on the cheek. with one swipe, you’ll see the color very obviously. This blush is matte, no shimmer at all.
Now onto the second blush, Coral Pink. Coral pink is slightly lighter than Hydrangea Pink. As the name says, Coral pink has a coral undertone. The pigmentation is just as good as Hydrangea Pink. One swipe is perfect to get the color to pop on your cheek.
In this set of pictures, the swatch is taken under indirect sunlight.
This is one layer of blush- not blended

Comparison with Illamasqua Hussy:
I have heard that Hydrangea Pink looks similar with Tom Ford blush in Narcissist. Unfortunately I don’t have that blush to be compared. I don’t own many matte blushes, most of my blushes contains slight shimmer. However I own one bright matte blush from Illamasqua – Hussy.
Hydrangea Pink – Illamasqua Hussy – Coral Pink
Illamasqua Hussy looks different with both Hydrangea Pink and Coral Pink. When compared, Illamasqua Hussy leans towards coral more than Hydrangea Pink and Coral Pink.
As usual, Burberry blushes never disappoints. The texture is very fine, soft and blends beautifully. It lasts with me for about 5-6 hours depending on my activity. For ladies who loves pink cheek, these products are definitely worth checking!
