Burberry Beauty Light Glow Natural Blush in Cameo

Considering how I generally rave positive about Burberry Beauty, when it first came out I wasn't really all that into it.  Just a little taste, or smear of their products however... well, look at me now.  I have a few of the Burberry blushes, and Cameo is the among the very first items I bought on my fateful trip to the counter.  I bought this in Hong Kong during a jet-lag fueled boredom purchase session.  Thank goodness I lucked out.
All the same qualities of Burberry blushes apply to Cameo as well.  There is almost a creamy feel to the powder that seems to my make the color meld beautifully into my skin.  I love that quality.  This one is matte but without any powderiness.  I love that, too!

The color is a lovely cooled down pink, with a slight dose of mauve into it.  Swatch below.  By the way, I've baked too much in the sun over a recent vacation and my skin is much darker than in earlier posts.  (Don't yell at me!  I apply and reapply my sunblocks, along with wearing hats and shade-dwelling, but I have a tendency to tan up quickly!)



Pretty, right?  But hmm, cool mauvy pinks.  I think... Wait! Wait a minute:


Oh no... dupey dupes in the collection without me even realizing it until I was digging through the drawers cooking up things to post about.  Rouge Bunny Rouge's Gracilis and the Vermeer cheek stick seems to have some resemblance to Cameo.

In this picture, Vermeer (though warmer and slightly darker in the stick), appear kind of close to Cameo.  Gracilis is paler than Cameo.

In different light, it seems like the major differences among the colors are the texture.  Vermeer is easy to take out of the dupe equation as it is a cream color and actually fairly sheer in finish (and a bit wimpy in lasting power).  Gracilis looks like a paler cousin to Cameo, but has more or a sheen; it is not a matte shade, more of a delicate shimmer.


All worthy pinks, me thinks.  But I don't think I need them all, do I?  Which one is floating your boat?
