Briar rose is a cool tone dpink beauty powder with lavender undertones. It has a satiny finish to it. It is the blush for those days when your face looks dull and you want the dewy glow on your cheeks. That’s exactly the kind of finish it gives . The texture is hands down better than the regular powder blush. Also the satiny finish is such that no matter what, it would never accentuate your pores. It would give that satiny veil to your cheeks.

The shade is especially pretty for girls with medium to dusky skin tones. Briar rose beauty powder has sheer to buildable coverage and I don’t think you can use it all over the face. That would be too much .I use it as a blush only. You can apply a wash of briar rose along the bridge of your nose to get that wintery glow.

It stays on all day on me. However it gets even sheerer after a few hours but I don’t mind that.

It is one of the most natural looking blush I have in my collection. It gives that innocent rosy glow on your cheeks.

Shade wise I wouldn’t call Briar Rose a must have but You must give MAC beauty powder a try.

      1. he he.. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ it would look OTT on Indian Skin tones. No matter how much cold the climate is here, rarely people become all pink, except for their nose and lips…
        But, this look sooo cute!!…your cheeks looking all :blush: :blush: :blush:

        1. you cannot apply it all over the face. I mean I haven’t even tried doing that because I am not very fair or don’t turn very pink as it is. But cali the texture is soo gorgeous. It’s like as if you are touching something silky.

          Thankies :blush: :blush: :blush:

              1. arey panga is I didn’t find MAC store there in Ulm (Germany) too. I don’t know where was it. I never knew that you won’t find MAC cosmetics in normal drugstores, so I never bothered too. Now I want to buy, but donno where to buy from!! :-((

        1. He will get scared and run away from me!! 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 …When I did the smokey eye after reading the tutorial..he liked the overall look πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ , but wasn’t comfortable seeing me in that avatar… :silly: :silly: :silly:

          1. oh may be start with neutral eye shadows. :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: Like just a wash of a soft brown eye shadow on lids. then dheere dheere contouring , next colors . by the time you get full on with eye makeup, he would have got used to seeing shadows on your lids. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    2. Farha I have gone through the same phase but I think he is used to it now. he he he now he kinda compliments me on my eye makeup and all …only on some days :smug: but still..

      I keep bugging him by asking “blush cute lag raha hai na” ” my earrings are cute na” ” my brushes look so cute na after their tips are painted ”

      he says yes to everything. me happy, he happy :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

      1. oh earlier he used to roll his eyes…he has found an easier way now . he says “yes” to everything i ask 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

        but so what? I am happy that ways only :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug:

  5. Oh,,, but u lukd awesuuuuummmm in ur karwachauth makeup….hehe it was very innocent look…sati savitri types πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  6. Hehe Rati πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Guess u have trained him completely now…. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰
    With my hubby i have to literally fish for compliments by putting finger in his throat :-(( :-(( :-(( :-(( :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: I keep on telling him u didnt say enethn abt how i luk today :knife: πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ until he gets the point and compliments me πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  7. Rati, i belong to Bhubaneswar (Temple city), capital of Orissa, near to Cuttack (Silver Filigree work) Puri (Lord Jagannath temple) n Konark (Sun Temple).

      1. areyy m also from bhubaneswar … kolkatta is the best option for us … i plan a trip to one of my dozens of relatives now and then and shop shop shop πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ and they say silky kitni pyari bachi hai ,, milne aa jati hai :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

  8. its a beautiful color…..looking lovely on you…pinky face 😯 😯 nowadays its only my daug who sees my makeup and she can even know if i hv put / not put a non gloss lip balm !!! hubby from “yes” to everything has moved to saying nothing !!!

    1. haan they say you can use beauty powder all over the face. But i think only people with very fair skin can do that. May be peachy toned beauty powder can be used all over the face to get a glow but not his one.

      from saying yes to nothing is scary :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble:

  9. Rati me going to Pheonix mills…dey hav MAC,EL,Lancome,Clinique so :fingersxd: :fingersxd: :fingersxd: :fingersxd: :fingersxd: :fingersxd: :fingersxd: on getting my perrfecttt base makeup :-))

  10. yeahhhhhhhhhh.. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ he liked me in that brown/maroon kind of eyeshadow I bought from inglot!! ..I did a simple makeup once – just applied a nude skin colored eyeshadow all over the lid, and that inglot maroon shadow around the outer v of eyes.. Followed by applying highlighter on the brows. Then I applied thin black eyeliner over the lids, and Kajal only at the 1/3d of the waterline (outer area). It was quite soft makeup and he somehow liked it and gave me compliments too! :cute: :shy: :shy: :shy: :shy: :shy:

    1. he he so far everything blends into your skintone, they don’t mind. The moment anything looks extra on you they πŸ™„ πŸ™„ πŸ™„ πŸ™„

      You do thoda thoda regularly.

      1. I don’t like hubby either…..I made dinner 2-3 days now…he should be like :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: but no effect only…he seems to behave like making dinner is no big deal…and I made it like 2-3 maggi break in between…no appreciation only :-((

  26. sucha pinkish pink :hypnotized: :giggle: :giggle: :giggle:

    i don’t think i can pull of this, bronze is my tested and suitable blush for moi πŸ˜€

  27.

  28. @Rati: The blush looks so cute on uuu!!!!!! I always wondered if pink blushes only suited teenies..but seein ur pics..I want one for myself..!!!!ye!!! :-)) :-)) :-))

  29. sooo pretttyy!!
    1st when i saw this colour i thot its too much of a cool pink tone to suit indian skin tone and probably would look frosty!!

    but then –
    ofcourse my view changed after seeing u wearing it in the next pic!!
    its cuteee and gorgeous and u look lovely in it! :cute:

  30. I agree with Rati on that point..But somehow powder blushes make my cheeks look dry and dull..Else really liked the color of this one..

    @Rati-I’ve always wondered how Sanjeev Bhaiya is never insecure of the pics u post of urself ..I mean the way u look,Guy’s could be drooling in front of their screens looking at ur pics and making plans to kidnap u while u go makeup shopping..
