For my NW40 skin, this blush is a perfect everyday color. Like all the other BB blushes I have tried, Tawny is very finely milled, so it goes on easily and blends to perfection. I don't usually wear foundation, but I apply my moisturizer, then apply translucent powder after 5 minutes, then blush. It wears for the entire work day and is completely matte, which makes it look very natural. $24 is not exactly cheap, but I'm willing to pay it because this is a great quality blush.
I'm not much of a blush fan, but I've spent years trying to find a natural-looking blush and I think this is it for me! My skin tone is a BB 3.5-4, a light-medium olive.
The color is really pigmented and it's easy to apply too much; if I end up applying too much I just press my hands into my cheeks to soften the look.
This is one of my HG blushes... has been for YEARS! I love it. It gives the perfect natural flush, I think it compliments many skin tones (I am NC 25/30). I think it also does well with Bobbi Brown's theory of using two blushes, one base and another "pop" color, this is definitely more of the base.
I like the color of this blush. It's a pinky brown blush. It's not too overwhelming on my dark olive skin. It's my new neutral blush. I do feel like it's not really tawny though. When I think of tawny, I think of an orangey color. One thing that I hate is the packaging. For $24, I just think Bobbi Brown could have done a little better with the packaging. It's just looks and feels cheap to me. Just to clarify, the packaging I'm talking about is square with a cheap looking cover, not what is shown in the photos here on MUA.
I have been using Tawny blush since it was first recommended for me - about 15 years ago! - and I keep buying it because it's just totally foolproof. I'm NC30-40, Bobbi Brown 4.5, and on my skin it does what blush is supposed to do which is just give a natural glow. From reading some of the many reviews of this product, it's one of those magic shades that performs on all complexions from fair to deep. I've also used Brown Berry - a deeper shade - and Rose - brighter, and good for the BB "pop" of colour - but Tawny is my go-to shade. Because it's a medium pink-brown, it will go with just about every shade of lipstick. Unlike so many other brands, BB powder blushes work so well because they are completely matte and also very sheer, and are very easy to apply. You can put this shade on in the dark and still look great!
I love this blush, its the perfect combination of peach and pink, looks very natural on my NC15/20 skin, not at all orange or over the top doll pink.
The packaging, with the flip top lid is great, but you don't get a huge amount of product, although it seems quite well pigmented so hopefully it will last a long time.
This is my favorite blush! It's great for everyday use, for every season. Goes with my olive skin perfectly.
A perfect everyday blush. It's not too much, it's just a hint of colour. If you like spectacular blushes, you might not think this is the best option, but it is quite nice for a daily look. I'm not too much into blushes as I am into other makeup items, but this is my to-go blush and i love it. Maybe if you're really really fair it may be too colorful, but i think for medium-toned skinned girls it's perfect, and has a corally hint to it for the summer. Maybe if I try a lot of other blushes I'll prefer them, but as of now, I'm good with Tawny!
This blush is gorgeous. I own a couple other Bobbi Brown blushes(Sand Pink and Apricot) and those are pretty as well but I always have to be very, very careful to apply with a light hand or I end up looking like a clown. After my Apricot crumbled into a million little pieces(hate the newer packaging) I decided to try a new color and I'm glad I did.
Tawny is more subtle than the other two I own, goes with my warm skintone better and looks more natural. It's a very pretty pinky brown. I'll probably be wearing it everyday now.
I recently got this blush and since I am a medium to light skin tone it looks wonderful on me because it has a reddish hue to it and that looks good with warm tones. I would purchase this again, but its not always the color I'm looking for, so actually a maybe.
The price was OK and the packaging, I wish it was a bit sturdier. Otherwise, brilliant color; gives that flushed (reddish) look im always wanting
