LOVELOVELOVE! bobbi brown is an amaizng makeup line. this blush is creamy and soft and gives a great flush of pink color. pale pink- is a bright, but balanced pretty pink that is perfect for all seasons (color in the winter, flush in the fall, spring color in the spring, and natural for the summer) it can either be used with your fingers or a brush, but i think using your fingers is more effective, because it blends more easily and cleanly. i use this on my cheeks, but it is also a creamy lip color too. you have to blend it with your fingers and you are good to go. the only bad thing i can say abotu this is that you have to reapply, but you have to reapply most makeup products. usually people with oily skin use powder blush, to absorb the oil and look better on their skin type, and dry skin use cream blushes. i have combination so it could basically go either way for me. but i LOVE the feeling of cream blushes, they are so soft and creamy. i think that powder blushes give you flakes and make your skin look like your trying too hard unless you do it the right way, with cream blushes it always looks natural and gives color. i love this blush and ive been using it for SO long and i plan to use it forever! also, these pot rouges come in many different colors, i have this pale pink, 2 more pink shades, and one chocolately shade for a bronzing blush. they r all amazing!
