i really didnt like this product . it felt it more like a lip balm and not like a blush.
such a beautiful medium pink! looks great on my pale c4 winter skin....makes my lips look plump! smooth texture
Great product! It is neither drying nor sticky on my cheeks. It gives me a natural flush and adds more liveliness to my face. I don't apply it on my lips though because it can be quite drying. But I like this product and want to try Cabo Coral next time!
Great shade for fair, cool toned skin, a soft baby pink, fantastic texture IMO. This to me is one of the only dual use creams that I can actually use on both my lips and cheeks. It is the texture of a lipstick, so it doesn't dry out your lips horribly or look thick and cakey like the Stila Petunia convertible color does. I really love the BB pot rouges they are my complete favourite when it comes to dual use. This give a lovely natural pale dewy pink flush to the cheek and a nice low key soft pink lip. It blends well without too much tugging, I dot it on my cheek with my lip brush and blend with my fingers, then apply to lips with the brush too. The shade is not sheer it is relatively opaque but not cakey or thick, it can be applied lightly or built up. I like to put it on heavily and then blot it off for a natural look. The cream is nice if you have dry cheeks, not sure how it would go on oily skin though, it has never broken me out. I Love it, just wish it was in a hinged container and then it would be totally perfect.
My favorite true pink blush, Catalina, by Cargo comes in powder form only and I was hoping to find it's creamy equivalent in this as my skin starts to get drier throughout the late Fall and then drier still throughout Winter. The color on this is lovely, but it's really not as creamy as I hoped and even though it's only early Fall, I already have to really moisturize a lot to get this to spread evenly without skipping or tugging across my cheeks so I think this may actually be a dud when my skin gets even drier in the dead of winter. I can see how it would be totally drying on lips, too, unless you moisturize and use a gloss over top. On lips this color imparts a very 1960s mod Barbie look which I really didn't like, I think some of the other colors are better suited if you want to use this on lips.
I am an NC 40. My body runs very yellow but my face is pink. I use a yellow foundation the cancels out all the pink. Without a blush I look sickly. I've been on the hunt for my perfect shade and came across this randomly at the BB counter. Don't be fooled by the name..it's not as pale of a pink as you would expect. It's simply stunning. Very creamy and soft. It's buildable and can be applied lightly or heavy. I use my fingers to swirl around in the container and then swirl in circles on the apples of my cheeks. It gives a "just out of the snow" look. I cannot begin to say just how perfect this creamy blush is. It's everything I wanted. It goes on smooth and dries matte. No shimmer or frost. It looks fabulous as a lip tint too. And adding a gloss makes it pop. For around 20 dollars this is a great buy. It's a decent sized container and a little is all you need.
I've been looking for the perfect pink flush for my NC30-35 skin (Im going through a pink and fuschia phase) and this one is pretty darn good. I recieved a sample of this from a friend of mine and I was really suprised. It looks pretty scary in the pot and very cool so I had my reservations but gave it a shot. I applied a tiny tiny bit with a foundation brush and it gives me a pretty youthful pink flush. Yay! If I overdo it, it looks far too cool and scary, but with a light hand its really gorgeous. The sample alone will last me forever, but when it does run out, I will repurchase. I'm still on the lookout for the perfect pink flush, but this just too pretty to pass up!
I also own BB's pot rouge in Blushed Rose but wanted something a little fresher, a little less brown toned for variety. After perusing the reviews here and taking advantage of the e-mail colour consultation service the BB website provides (they recommended this one to me), I went ahead and bought it.
I find that pot rouge in Pale Pink is essentially a slightly more pigmented cream blush version of Benefit's Dandelion (another fave of mine.) It applies very sheer, allowing you to build color carefully. That said, you really don't need to be worried about overdoing it easily with this one; the finish is very natural and flattering on the skin, and I'm super pale. It makes me look fresher and actually does brighten my complexion, so it gets a big thumbs up.
Not sure I would bother with this one if I had dark or tanned skin, I'm not sure it would show up enough (it really is very light once on the skin.) If you're pale though I urge you to give this one a try.
My only gripes are the packaging (looks minimalist chic but the screw top lid is a bit annoying) and the ridiculous price. At least you get a lot of product though, and since a little goes a long way, I'm sure it will take me a few years to get through my pot.
I've been using various cream blushers for quite a while but they have all been discontinued. In my quest to find a new blush I read the reviews for BB and decided to try this. I've been using it for 3 weeks now and this is HANDS DOWN the BEST cream blush I've ever used!!! I'm so excited it works for me. I hope they never discontinue this product I love it so much. It looks dark in the pot but it applies lightly and blends so well on the cheeks and looks incredibly natural I'm stunned.
I was surprised i could get this to show on NC35, but I did, and am plesantly surprised at the outcome. It is a nice true pink that I will reach for on my non-coral days!! (I love coral, it just looks so good on yellow toned skins...) Though i have given this to a NW15 friend to try and I must admit it is better for paler chicks. Finish is quite dewy - just use powder to set if you want a matte look.
Texture is surprisingly hard (not as creamy as imagined), but colour payoff is decent, and I think it looks better applied with a fdtn/stippling brush if you don't want too much drama. And it's more hygienic that way. If you want to use it on lips - it is quite hard to get to show on more pigmented lips, but it doesn't dry out for me (this is speaking from experience using Cabo Coral pot rouge).
This stuff will last ages so don't get too put off by price - it is a nice splurge from time to time and you will get to have tons of use out of it. I wouldn't buy this colour again, but i will keep venturing into other pot rouge shades.
