Embrace- Matte Mauve Blush- compare to BB Mauve




Embrace is our clone of Bobbi Brown's Mauve blush- it's a very "your cheeks but better"- at first it struck me as a very natural blush, but it also delivers a nice pop of pink- kind of that healthy, excited, flushed look.  I was expecting this to be on the cooler side- like most mauves, but I was very surprised by how balanced it is- it does have a nice amount of brown in it that balances it nicely.  If you're into blushes- at least a sample would be a nice addition to your collection. 

Samples are 1/8 teaspoon in a 5 gram jar.  Full size is 1-1/2 teaspoons (7 ml)  in a 10-gram sifter jar.

Ingredients:  Mica, Silk Powder, Silica, Iron Oxides, FD&C colors

A note about clones:  We clone products so you can have the colors that you love, but with much better ingredients.  Because we don't use talc, bismuth oxychloride, binders, petroleum products or preservatives in our color formulas there may be some slight differences between the original and the SN clone.

This blush isReview by Francesca A.
This blush is a lot darker than I expected. When applied, however, it is SO sheer. It's a nice blush, just not the one for me.

This was anotherReview by Sandra K.
This was another blush sample in my order. The description says it's a mauve with brown tones, but it doesn't seem to look so mauve to me. I haven't tried it on my face yet though, only on the inside of my arm, so we'll see what it really looks like when I get a chance to try it out of all of the samples I ordered. I don't think I'll be using this as much as some of the others I got as this one doesn't quite 'grab' me.

The product's quality itself is good, but it just isn't quite the right color for me, I don't think. Which is why I'm giving it 3 stars. Overall a nice color, though :-)

Lovely, but aReview by Michelle W.
Lovely, but a bit too red on my pale skin. If you can wear tones with some red in them, it would be a lovely color.

This blush isReview by Kinjal S.
This blush is great for days where you just want a hint of color. My skin tone is a meduim-deep olive and I only use a tiny bit and apply with my fiber optic brush. It gives me a nice pop of color without people knowing I have blush on. It's very natural looking. Its my "I just came in from the cold" blush.

Very dark lookingReview by Anne A.
Very dark looking in the jar, but very wearable indeed!
I use my fiber optic brush for day use, and it looks perfect.

I'm a bit more heavy handed for night time, and it's my go-to blush for going out.

I love thisReview by Y. N.
I love this blush. I thought it looked a little too dark when I received this and was afraid it'll darken my face, but it looks very very natural. I wear this all the time and it's my everyday blush. I never thought I would like something this red, since I like light pink colors but I love this.

I ordered thisReview by Tracey S.
I ordered this along with Cozy & Cuddle eye shadows and got practically the entire BB Mauve Fall Collection for a fraction of the price!!!!

This is a lovely colour & very highly pigmented so a little goes a v long way. I am a bit cack handed so recommend using the Fibre Optic brush to avoid applying too much.
