How would you like to have a blush that was made more than 130 years ago? A blush which made it's way from the theatres in Paris in the 1860s, to all across the world since then.... and to my dressing room in 2010. Now, that's half the charm of this blush - the history. Which is weird, coz I always fell asleep during all of my History classes in school. Sigh! If only Gandhi wore makeup... I could've scored higher than.....nah I'm not telling you! =D
In my post on the History & Shades of Bourjois Blushes, I mentioned the first blush that was given a name in 1879 and which still exists today ~ 'Rosette Brune', now called 'Cendre de Rose Brune'
It's a matte rose pink shade, which, in my opinion, is a darker, more adult version of the MAC Pink Swoon (click for review & swatch)
If Pink Swoon let you down by not showing up on your skin tone, then Cendre De Rose Brune would probably be good 'rebound' blush for you.

If you're a blush addict & collector, your collection would be incomplete without this classic. Just as a movie buff's collection would be without 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (or Sound Of Music?) and a stamp collector's would be without the 'Black Penny Stamp' (I googled 'oldest stamp'. I have no interest in stamps whatsoever! =D)
