Part of the Burberry Siren Red Collection for Spring/Summer 2013 are two blushes - Hydrangea Pink (No. 10) and Coral Pink (No. 09).  The two look almost identical, and I am reviewing both in the same post so comparisons are a teeny bit easier.  These blushes come packaged in a square mirrored compact with the Burberry check design on the case and accompanying pouch.  Also included is a surprisingly functional brush.  The blush compacts have a magnetic snap-shut mechanism, which seems to be a typical feature in most Burberry products.

The square mirror compacts feature a magnetic snap-shut mechanism - makes for a very clean design.
On to the blushes, Hydrangea Pink (No. 10) is a beautiful bright pink with a tiny bit of shimmer in the blush, but it's seen only if I look really, really closely.  For all practical purposes, these blushes are matte.  Here's a look at Hydrangea Pink - swatches and how it looks on me.

If you lean a bit cool with your skin undertones or just like to wear a lot more pink lipsticks and glosses, you would love Hydrangea Pink.  The color is easy to use and gives the perfect healthy, flushed look.

Coral Pink (No. 09), as the name suggests, is a coral-based pink (again has the difficult-to-spot shimmer in it).  While it looks quite similar to Hydrangea Pink, and it does swatch similar too, the color looks best paired with coral lips and lends a bit of a warmth to the skin.  It's also slightly lighter than Hydrangea Pink, and I am not sure how well this would show up on someone a few shades darker than I am.  Here's a look at Coral Pink - swatches and on me.

I really couldn't choose between these two blushes.  Most times, I cannot tell them apart unless I flip the case and check the name!  I have convinced myself there is a slight difference in the undertones between these two blushes - am quite sure there is - but no amount of swatching has helped me prove it :P  Anyway, here's a look at side-by-side swatches of Hydrangea Pink and Coral Pink.

Do you really need to get both the blushes - not really, they aren't all that very different!  Sure, it's nice to have both, but if I had to choose between the two, I would pick Coral Pink (..for now, at least).  I am a bit of a neutral with my skin tone, but I think I do better with corals than pinks.  Hydrangea Pink leans a bit cool and is a deeper color and might show up better on deeper skin tones than Coral Pink - again, this is just me guessing!  I found the product photos online at Nordstrom pretty accurate for both these blushes, but it's always better to swatch in store to get a better idea.

Hydrangea Pink and Coral Pink
The two Burberry blushes - Hydrangea Pink and Coral Pink - are both very pigmented, needing only the slightest touch of the brush to pick up enough color, and are very easy to blend.  These are my very first Burberry blushes, and I am sufficiently impressed to want to pick up a few more colors (if I find something that would show up on my skin).  Whether you pick both or wisely decide one of them would work just fine, I am sure you would find these a fabulous buy.  The blushes are fragranced (rose), and if you have a sensitive nose, you might want to check in store before buying.  It's not an issue for me, but I do have a friend who cannot stand the fragrance :P

  4. You know, I saw swatches of these yesterday and I THOUGHT that Hydrangea Pink and Coral Pink looked VERY similar, but I thought it was just the result of poor lighting. Now I see that I was right--they are very VERY similar. I'm a bit disappointed, to be honest. Why put out 2 cheek colors that are so alike? I mean when worn on your cheeks, I cant tell them apart at ALL. I was going to buy Coral Pink but I will have to think about it again...I was hoping for something a bit warmer and more predominantly coral. I could go for Blossom, which is more along the lines of what I wanted but then, it's not new and where's the fun in that?! LOL!

    1. True!! :D I have lost count of how many times I have had to flip the two over to figure out which is which..I think if you are lighter, you can just go with Coral Pink..it would look a tad warmer than what it looks like on my darker skin..but not warmer the way a peach/tangerine-based blush would look..

  5. The blushes look gorgeous on you! I've had my eye on Hydrangea Pink since I saw the collection... I wonder what they were targeting releasing 2 very similar blushes, but when you think about it from a colored girl's point of view, I think it's genius releasing 2 blush shades with a darker version for women of color... something I wish Chanel could have done especially with Frivole :(

    1. It makes sense if you look it that way..and seriously, Frivole is not all that bright and pigmented as people make it sound to be!!!
