Burt’s Bees Blush Review & Swatches

Burt’s Bees Blush is a new 100% natural mineral blush formula that contains honey and vitamin E. The brand recently launched this blush in three permanent shade selections for the Fall 2017 season and I quickly snatched two of them up because I’ve had some pretty good success with the Burt’s Bees Makeup Collection in the past.

This is one of those formula’s that you’ll want to pick up if you’re looking for a cruelty-free and completely natural formula.

Here’s my review, thoughts, and swatches.

This post will be updated shortly with swatches apologies for the delay!

Burt’s Bees Blush comes in a lightweight compact compact which doesn’t contain a mirror nor a brush. The blush itself has a cute honeycomb design and is 0.19 oz in size with a price of $9.99 each.

I actually expected a lot more pigment from these blushes but they are good deal sheerer than I expected and remind me of the Flower Beauty Flower Pots Blush I reviewed a few months ago in terms of color pay off.

The texture is a bit powdery but silky and gorgeous with a very easy to blend formula. It isn’t dry at all and didn’t look dry on my drier cheeks. The soft, silky texture had a smooth, even appearance that didn’t cling or give a too made up appearance. The colors are buildable but quite sheer and natural looking no matter how much you apply. The finish is a satiny matte with no shimmer, glow, or glitter. The wear time was around five hours for me before they started fading away.

I hate to say it but I didn’t really like these. I like a little more pop to my blush! This finish was a little flat on my cheeks and I ended up looking like I wasn’t wearing makeup at all. Some people will adore the sheer, natural finish but I like a little more pigment in my blush!

Eep! Sorry!

But the formula has absolutely no faults. It’s soft, silky, and easy to blend.

Burt’s Bees Blush are definitely for the natural girls and guys out there. These deliver a touch of natural color that isn’t too over the top!

Burt’s Bees Blush is available now at ulta.com and amazon.com.

    I think they look great on you, especially the peach one. Makes you look super-healthy and not particularly like you’re wearing blush, if that makes sense. <3

    I was excited about these since they’re all natural but I am like you and like some pigment with my blush, otherwise I look washed out. Too bad, the formula sounds divine! These might be good for beginners or young girls wanting a natural look; did you purchase the eyeshadow trios?

    • Isabella Muse

      likewise! I rely on my blush to make me look alive lol! 😀 I did! testing now!

  • Robin

    I think they look great on you!!! I may pick these up since I’m upper pale and I love a soft natural blush.

  • Christian

    I really like the look of the shy pink color on you! I’m more interested in their powder foundation, however. I am waiting for it to pop up in stores somewhere!!

  • Lori

    I agree, they look really good on you!! I’m pretty pale, and addicted to blush, so I’m searching for these! The CVS app says “available” for my two closest stores, but “available” on their app means “sitting in the back room in a box”. No luck at Walgreens either.
