My First Bobbi Brown Purchase!

My Pot Rouge in "Pale Pink" with flash
"Pale Pink" in natural light
I received the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for my 18th birthday in March. I've been using it EVER SINCE. I use clean fingers to apply it to the upper part of my cheekbones for a light, natural, flush. I've used a foundation brush to apply it, and that works too, but I like to use the warmth of my fingers to blend it in. Using a foundation sponge just seems to soak up all of the product.

"Our best-selling, multi-tasking cream color just got even better. It's now in a mirrored flip-top compact for on-the-spot application. Blend it on the apples of your cheeks for a just-pinched look. Blot it on your lips for a soft, stained finish.For drier skins, be sure to moisturize skin first. "

What it really is:
The "Pot Rouge" is a cream blush. Most cream blushes I've tried have been too sheer, but this one is somewhere in between sheer and opaque coverage. It's medium coverage that is very buildable. I never apply my cream blush over powder, because it looks cakey.  I usually apply this after I have done my foundation. If you don't wear foundation, it would still look great on bare skin. (Which is great if you're in a rush). It's very natural looking, and there are shades to suit everyone. It's effortless to blend, especially with fingers. I wore it for my prom and the color looked fresh all night!

There are 10 shades:
  • Blushed Rose
  • Calypso Cora
  • Chocolate Cherry
  • Fresh Melon
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Pale Pink
  • Powder Pink
  • Raspberry
  • Rose
  • Uber Beige
I love that they can be used for both, lips and cheeks! I don't like the screw on lid, but this is the old packaging. The new packaging is in a compact. They changed it right after I bought mine, go figure.
