Love, love, love this product. I am not sure why some reviewers thought it had a very hard texture. I only have to lightly tap my finger on the top of the product to get plenty of color. It blends extremely easily unless I use a powder foundation. If the product was really hard in texture, I would seriously return it to the BB counter as it may be defective. I now have Pot Rouge in 2 colors and will definitely repurchase.
In my opinion this is a fab blusher. Being in my 40's, I was advised it is more flattering not to use powder blushers and this is a lovely creamy one. The colour is quite sheer if you apply it lightly and 'Powder Pink' gives a very natural blushed look. I find it quite easy to blend and don't feel it drags the skin, although I know others MUA'ers have disagreed. I had previously tried 'Summer Tan' in a sample pot and loved the consistency - colour also good by the way - but found the small pot hard to get the blush out of once you have got just a little way down. The full size pot is much easier to work with. Added advantage of Pot Rouge is that it can also be applied as a lip colour - to me this gives you something in between a lip gloss and a lipstick; not as glossy as a lip gloss but sheerer than a lipstick. I tend to prefer a more natural lighter lip colour than this but find a small amount with a lighter colour lipstick over the top gives me a good look. Not cheap but you get a fair amount in the pot and this will last me ages. Going to try Pale Pink next!
LOVE this blush, love the pot rouges in general, but this color is my favorite. Perfect everyday color for my fair skin, on my cheeks I just tap it into the cheekbone. After about five minutes, the color settles in nicely and looks nice and natural. Well, the "I'm wearing makeup natural look". On my lips, I put some vaseline on first, blot that with a tissue, and then dab the pot rouge on, and it just finishes everything off nicely. This is something I'll always reach for. Cream blushes are great on me as most powder blushes, except for the super pigmented, turn rusty on me.
I was looking for a new cream blush after my beloved Tarte had run out (which is more of a gel, mind you). I stopped by the Bobbi Brown counter and asked for assistance. The women there are extremely helpful and nice, and pointed me to the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks - Powder Pink. I tried it out the next day. I found that this was a very hard consistency inside of the pot, and unfortunately it was the same when applied on the face. It dragged my skin and stripped it of the foundation that was under it. It also looked uneven because of the consistency. I feel it was too much for my pale skin (very fair, hazel eyes, dark brown hair) and made me look made-up. It's beautiful as a lip color, but a little drying. I find these products do not do both as they claim they do. I will be going back to my Tarte Cheek Stain.
I am normally a cream blusher user and this product only convinces me further that cream blushers are more natural looking.
This blusher is very pigmented and a small dab into the pot is sufficient for both cheeks. I think this blusher will last a long time!
The only thing about this blusher that made me drop a lippie was the texture which is quite hard. Maybe this is due to the cold weather and the fact that it is very pigmented, but I need to blend the product very thoroughly on my cheeks to ensure the colour looks very natural. So this will not be something you can put on in a hurry and dash out of the door.
Packaging wise, this is the normal BB packaging which I like and is easy to use.
Although this is stated as a rouge for both lips and cheeks, I have not tried this on my lips as I imagine it will not be very moisturising.
This is my current go-to blush and has unseated Clinique's Blushing Blush in Precious Posy as my favourite. It's a bit hard to blend but gives a lovely natural neutral to warm pink which is slightly darker than the colour I naturally blush but looks gorgeous on my fair skin. I apply using a sponge and pat it into my cheeks.
I was originally going to get Pale Pink but the store assistant persuaded me to try Powder Pink on one cheek and Pale Pink on the other cheek. Powder Pink was much prettier even though I would have thought the cooler coloured Pale Pink would have suited my pale skin. So if you're fair and debating which Pot Rouge to get, I'd suggest trying Powder Pink as well even if it does look quite tawny in the jar.
This is great. The color and texture look very real on my skin. It lasts through the day. My skin is normal to dry - dryer in the colder weather. Wouldn't use this in the summer but love it for this weather.
I write this as a lifelong powder blush person. I'm not converted. I tried this after I had bought a rather cheap powder blush tht didn't last 5 minutes throughout the day. I asked the salesgirl in the shop if this cream blush would last longer than a powder and she said Yes. But she had that look in her eye that somehow told me otherwise. I bought it anyway. It's reasonably long lasting as cream blushers go but needs reapplying mid-day I find. There is a lot of pigment in it so you don't need very much. I don't think Powder Pink is a very good description of the colour since that suggests something rather softer. This is quite a tawny shade and probably a bit too much for my fair skin. I find it quite difficult to apply as it tends to drag on the skin. But as a lifetime powder blusher I guess I need practice. I haven't tried it with a sponge as other reviewers have suggested but I'll give it a go. I haven't tried it as a lip balm either but I may do if it lasts me till next summer as it looks as though it might give a nice understated sheen for casual days.
As with all Bobbi Brown products the packaging gets the thumbs-up. It's a nice solid screw top jar - no danger of falling to bits in the make up bag as some cheaper brands do.
I love this blush. I've never used a cream blush before and I definately will be using it again. It lasts all day and helps keep my dry skin moist. I also love it on my lips. It's great to only carry one product with you that serves 2 purposes. I certainly will try other shades of this rouge.
Gorgeous natural pink. Just looks very fresh and natural on me.
