Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tints from the Pink & Red Collection for Winter/Early Spring 2013

When I first saw Bobbi Brown's Pink & Red Collection, I vowed the limited-edition Sheer Color Cheek Tints ($25) would be mine. I was able to purchase Sheer Pink at Nordstrom, then had to walk down to Bloomingdale's to purchase Sheer Cherry (the "red" one at right above). Nordstrom Tysons had sold out of Sheer Cherry within days!

Nothing makes a woman look prettier than a pop of blush. Bobbi’s Sheer Color Cheek Tint gives cheeks a tint of healthy, natural-looking color. The translucent, lightweight formula glides on smoothly and blends evenly onto skin. Bonus: it’s packaged in a chic, swivel-up stick for easy, on-the-go application. For a just-been-kissed look, apply Sheer Color Cheek Tint to the apples of the cheeks and blend down and back towards the hairline using your fingers.

What I learned the moment I store-tested Sheer Cherry is that it's not red - as it appears in the tube. It's an extremely pretty rose shade. I took swatch photos in full sun, and when I applied the tints directly from their tubes, I blended them into my skin only slightly.

Sheer Pink is shown at the top of my arm, with Sheer Cherry below. As you can see, they are variations on a theme: pink.

I really love Cheek Tints. They are sheer, easy to apply and blend, and stick with me all day. Now I have two choices to look pretty in pink this spring. I can select baby pink or rose pink.

Don't let the look of these shades in the tubes scare you away. Try them! I think you'll find that at least one of them will suit you nicely. You should be able to find them at Bobbi Brown counters.

These are cute but I've looked at the swatches several times now and can't tell any difference between the colors.

Trust me, Angela, the red one is darker. But not a whole lot.
