I really wanted to like this product. It's just like Tarte's Exposed blush for me. Lots of people raved about it and it sounded so perfect for me, but in the end it didn't give me the expected result.
One of first things I had issue with was that it was in a pot. I like pumps, because otherwise it can be a pool of bacteria from repeated use of the fingers. The color looked good on my hand, but on my face it didn't look like a pale pink...more like a rosey color. Also, I couldn't seem to get an even amount distributed. It got patchy in some places. The thing that I couldn't stand about this was the texture. Even when I used very little it made my face look and feel greasy. If there is one thing I can't stand it is a greasy look.
The best cream blush (in both texture and colour) for super pale skin I've ever found! (I'm NC15) It also seems to last forever, I've had my little pot for about a year, I use it daily and I've don't even seem to have made a dent in it!
If you apply it over freshly moisturised (or primed/foundationed) skin, then lightly dust with a little powder it lasts pretty much a full day without having to reapply.
However - word of warning - if you're heavy handed, then blend it to within an inch of your life, or you'll spend the day looking like Aunt Sally from Worzel Gummage (you Brits brought up on childrens TV in the 80's will certainly know what I mean!)
Looks really nice and fresh on the lips too, especially with a tiny dot of gloss on top.
OMG I LOVE THIS PRODUCT SOO MUCH.
I have this and Calypso Coral and pale pink
it's last very very long on your cheeks and I can also use it on my lips!
$24 might be a bit pricey but it lasts you FOREVER that pot!
I loveeee this colourrr, its just so soooo cute!
it's just so natural when i put it on. The packaging is cute and very light.
I think it worth the price and i would buy this again in this colour and other colour!
Got this yesterday and I LOVE it! My new HG for sure. Very sheer and natural on, buildable for that perfect flush. It almost seems a bit greasy so I just use my fingers to apply. It looks awful as a lip color (that's why I took off one lippie) but perfect as a blush. Unfortunately it does not last at all, probably because it is a bit greasy and so sheer. I think this would work best on someone with normal or dry skin - it's just too wet for oily skin.
I have been using it for years and no idea why I didnt do a review sooner. This was my first Bobbi Brown product as I love lip balms that have a gorgeous fresh pink pop of color yet look natural and can be jsut dabbed on eith your finger without having to deal with too much color or it looking too lipsticky. This is the perfect balm in the prettiest natural pink color I have seen. I carry this in my purse with an spf chapstick and these ar ethe onyl two thigns I use during the day. Gives me the perfect pink pout which jsut looks so soft and effortless without being too bright or too sheer. Well worth the money. Wish there was a larger range of color in these as I would definitely get more! :)
O.M.G. This is too cute. I got it from a blog sale after researching for the perfect light pink lipstick! I was kind of skeptical and little scared because I thought it might be little to dusty on me, however, this gives me that strawberry milky pink without being too light. (I am around NC30-35 and I am Asian) Girls, get it!!!!
Love this color. Flatters my olive complexion. I like using this during the cooler months when I am not as tan. It lasts long, especially if layering with a powder blush.
LOVELOVELOVE! bobbi brown is an amaizng makeup line. this blush is creamy and soft and gives a great flush of pink color. pale pink- is a bright, but balanced pretty pink that is perfect for all seasons (color in the winter, flush in the fall, spring color in the spring, and natural for the summer) it can either be used with your fingers or a brush, but i think using your fingers is more effective, because it blends more easily and cleanly. i use this on my cheeks, but it is also a creamy lip color too. you have to blend it with your fingers and you are good to go. the only bad thing i can say abotu this is that you have to reapply, but you have to reapply most makeup products. usually people with oily skin use powder blush, to absorb the oil and look better on their skin type, and dry skin use cream blushes. i have combination so it could basically go either way for me. but i LOVE the feeling of cream blushes, they are so soft and creamy. i think that powder blushes give you flakes and make your skin look like your trying too hard unless you do it the right way, with cream blushes it always looks natural and gives color. i love this blush and ive been using it for SO long and i plan to use it forever! also, these pot rouges come in many different colors, i have this pale pink, 2 more pink shades, and one chocolately shade for a bronzing blush. they r all amazing!

So, this is just okay for me. The color is fine but, I have 2 other Stila CCs that are almost exact matches to this so, I should have passed but, I didn't. I like cream blushes in that they are sheer and look more natural than a powder and when I have any dryness on my cheeks the cream is more forgiving than a powder blush. I just don't like dipping my fingers each time I use it but, I prefer them over a brush for blending cream blushes. It does apply nicely though (but, I haven't had any problems with a cream blush so far) and the color is buildable but, just too similar to my Stila CC (that came w/ 4 shadows for $10- and the quality of the CC is comparable) so, I won't repurchase this again.
