I purchased this pot rouge on the spot several years ago after a BB MA gave me a mini makeover at Saks, and I couldn't get over how this brightened my face. Still going strong, still plenty of product, still makes me happy the moment I put it on. I alternate between this and powder blushes depending on how I feel or how big of a hurry I'm in. I typically apply with my fingers but may try a stippling or foundation brush as others have suggested.
I am loving this blusher! It is the most gorgeous cutesy pink ever! Blending it properly took me a few to get used to but once you've got the hang of it, it gives you the most natural looking flush ever! Not that it's not noticeable! =) It's noticeably a great face brightener!
Plus I can use the colour on my lips too!
Im not a big fan of the texture because I dont really like the feel of it on my skin.This colour is pretty though I prefer deeper pinks.
This is the blush I always come back to!
This is the perfect pink blush even for my NC40 skin. It is the only pink cream blush that gives me lovely pink cheeks!
I have used with out any problems since my skin became really sensitive, unlike my other cream blushes which I had a reaction to. I don't know if this is because the others are already past their expiry dates (I bought them all a few weeks apart over a year ago). I think maybe the way the product is packaged has stopped it from deteriorating as quickly as my other creme blushes.
Other than it keeping the product usable, I find the screw top fiddly and would much rather it had a flip top. For the price of the product they should be able to put it in an equally air tight flip-top container.
My lips are quite pigmented so I've found that when I use this on my lips it just turns a muddy grey-pink colour.
Would definitely repurchase.
Not feeling the love here. A Nordie's artist did my makeup using pale pink powder. It was very soft and flattering. Unfortunately, another MUA pulled the items out, gave me pale pink pot rouge instead, and I didn't notice until I got home. The color looks the same in the pot, but it didn't look ANYTHING like the same shade when applied. The texture is tacky, tacky, tacky -- very tough to smooth over the cheeks. It ended up quite uneven.
I recently got this in a swap, I wouldn't have purchased it because anything pink is like "ugh" for me....I wasn't that thrilled when it came through the post either. However, I tried it on this morning and I ADORE this blusher!! First things first the lady I swapped with scooped out a load and swapped the rest in the pot - I've still got enough for about 5 years worth of daily use! It lasts forever and you hardly need to use any, it's VERY easy to blend, it's effortlessly natural looking which is great for me because I'm very good at overdoing it. This is just the daintiest pink i've ever seen, it's so pretty on my skin i love it!!
If you're pale, I recommend this 100% - this coming from someone who is NOT a pink person, it's truly my HG pink, utterley stunning blush.
This is my HG lipstick and blush. Lasts forever so it is worth the price. I'm NC15 for reference.
this time i will give you the pro's first:
1. its a pretty big pot,worth the money you spend on it. (bought this after selling my school text books back, DONT JUDGE ME i know u do it too! lol)
2. its a great rouge when u downplay ur eyes. (meaning u make ur lips the center of attention on ur face for today)
3. can be used as an everyday color
1. kinda dry on your lip because its also for your cheeks
I am a sucker for any "dolly pink" blush and this is just gorgeous! I have fair skin that is pretty neutral and can wear both warm and cool blushes provided they don't lean too far either way. This is definitley a cool blue bright pink, but with the right lip and eye makeup the color works. I like to pair this up with taupe e/s and my MAC slimshine lippie in Intimidate or NARS Roman Holiday. I don't like this pot rouge on my lips as it is too pale and opaque and dry/ sticky, but it might work for some. I tend to use my Pot Rouges as blush exclusively. Stipple it on lightly and blend with a synthetic bristled brush for a perfect, dewy application that lasts all day long. One pot will last you a lifetime since you use only the slightest amount. Bobbi just needs to keep cranking out more colors and I will keep purchasing them!
This quickly became my everyday blush! The colour is amazingly pretty, sheer and easy to blend. A really sweet, girly pink. I usually dab some on my lips (remember to have some lipbalm on) and then top it with some Stila lipglaze and it looks beautiful. The texture of this product is "drier" than most cream blushes I've used, it doesn't feel oily at all and gives a nice finish. What's really important to me is that this blush doens't accentuate any small imperfection on the cheeks. For instance, I have a really small acne scar which is never noticeable but with some cream blushes the colour kinda "sank" inside and made it really show. This didn't happen with Pot Rouge and I am definetely repurchasing even though a pot lasts a really long time. The only con I can think of is the packaging cause I prefer my blushes in some kind of mirrored packaging instead of a plain pot, helps when you want to touch it up
