I'm hoping more colors come out for this product because I much prefer its texture and finish on both lips and cheeks compared to the Pot Rouges which I find too dewy. The lasting power is also much longer. I have both shades -- "Pink Truffle" (deep nude rose) and "Honeyed Tea" (peachy brown) -- which are neutral enough to be universally flattering. I find them to be great contouring shades to pair with brighter powder blushes if I feel like layering. The product packaging is startlingly tiny - they almost look like the sample size tubes of face or eye creams that you get as gwps in sets - but only a little bit of product is used at a time, so I can see one tube lasting anywhere from 2-4 months depending on if you use it everyday or a few times a week.

Product - Pink Truffle is a lip/cheek cream in "neutral pink rose" or a plummy dusky rose with nude-brown undertones. Texture is creamy and moist (but not greasy), moderately pigmented, and buildable. Not too thick or too runny. Easy to work with. Feels great on lips, not drying.
Comparisons - The shade is (unsurprisingly) a dead ringer for the BB Pot Rouge with the same name; the Creamy Color formulation is less of a solid, more of a cream in comparison... duh. :)
Packaging - Opaque, glossy black squeeze tube with fine pointed squeeze tip and screw on lid. About the same size as the BB mini tube tints that come in sets. Very pocket-friendly and good for travel. I wish there was a representation of the color inside on the tube's exterior, though.
Overall - Great multi-use product from BB. In deciding whether to get this versus the Pot Rouge, it comes down to your personal preference for application method. continued >>
A game changer in that it produces a deeply blended-in effect that you get with cream blushes but is even better. It is supposed to double as a lip colour but I never think those work and in this case, it is no better. It comes in two colours and I have Pink Truffle which is a soft rose with brown undertones. The tube is so small it looks like a sample size but that's ok because the amount you use is miniscule. Great for traveling.
