I ended up buying this few months back. I wanted to own one pot rouge but I had hard time choosing a color. I am mac NW 18 and I eventually chose this. It is a bright pink pop of color. It looks girly. In my opinion when I wore it it is always like my cheeks are playing the leading role of my makeup. It just did not look natural enough. I think I should have gotten something more muted. It is however a great texture and I will absolutely buy this in another shade. I swapped pale pink away. I have some other shades on my wishlist, but will not purchase pale pink again. Of course you could apply this very lightly, but to me that is too much work to make this color work, Ill rather get another muted shade. I like the texture of Pot rouges better than MAC cremeblend. Mac cremeblend blushes are less pigmented and they have more slip. It seems like all the MAC cremeblend blushes sheer out to finally being the same shade. If you can not afford Bobbi Brown, I find Max Factor also makes an excellent tiny Cream blush product, even though the ingredients in that one arent as great as in this one, but it works really good also.

This is the product I, actually, run out of!:)
Had this in compact, always carried with me. Great for travelling, to get a quick fix on the go. Only carried this product, mascara and the powder for sleep-overs, or just for applying makeup while out.
Such a nice shade, complimenting my pale skin, making me look very fresh!
Very useful, good on lips, a little goes a long way on cheeks. Very long lasting (at least on me).
I had it for a long time. The only concern is that it might get quite nasty, especially if you apply it on the go. Dust and stuff sticks to the pot.
I had this product for a long time and would definitely buy again.

Beautiful. It's nice to have lips and cheeks matching. This is a very pretty and natural colour. No irritation and doesn't sit in the pores or cracks.

I love this Pale Pink colour for my fair skintone, and needed a decent cream blush. It makes me look healthy and just flushed enough to look as though I had been dancing; or at least otherwise exercising! Not too greasy; but moist, and easy to blend. This type of blush formula is recommended oftentimes for mature women, as the powders tend to get cakey and emphasize fine lines or wrinkles. I don't have too many wrinkles but fine lines are appearing; and I like to look healthy and moist without looking too made up. This really fits the bill. I cannot imagine running out of it as the size is so generous and you don't need much. But if I do, it is a definite repurchase!

This is a medium, neutral cool-toned pink. It is less bright than the powder version of pale pink by BB.

Cheeks: This doesn't feel sticky, and is capable of being layered over full coverage foundation without streaking, which is important to know.

Lips: When used on the lips, I was surprised 6 hours later when I glanced in the mirror that it was still present, only as a 'stain' finish. So first applied, it's like any lipstick but later on it just looks like a gorgeous blush lip stain. I am really into the whole blush and lipstick matching so this works if one likes that.

Overall 5/5. The product comes with a mirror and it's a small enough compact to fit in my purse. I find myself using this more and more for that lit-from-within look.

I love the blushing bride/rose/ spring style, and to achieve that on my medium, cool-toned skin, I apply foundation, then use this pot rouge on the apples of my cheek up to my hairline,and dabbed on my lips, then I apply the shimmer brick in Rose on cheekbones, and the Pale Pink powder version by BB on just the apples of my cheeks.

I bought BB Pale Pink after finally facing the fact that my Nars Multiple in Riviera, though a fantastic color, was a flop. And hooray, it's definitely my HG! I'm not sure I'd use it on my lips, bc they are prone to drying with color and this really doesn't seem moisturizing. But for a blush it's awesome.

It's very pigmented (which TBH, freaked me out upon first opening the compact), so for me, a pasty MW20ish specimen, a very small amount yields a really lovely, natural looking pinky/brightening glow. Have to resist getting too carried away though - it can be easy to overdo it if applying. I find that it's very long lasting, but I don't wear foundation so that may play a part here.

If you look good in cool pinks but are on the fence bc it's not DS cheap, it's worth taking into account that it lasts forever. I've been using it daily since purchasing in April '13, and there's only a small dent in my compact. I doubt I'll run out for a couple of years. I just hope BB has it or a similar shade/product on the market at that time so I can replace it!

I love it when one product pulls double duty. Great for travel, this product leaves your cheeks with a creamy glow and your lips with a pink flush. Don't be fooled into thinking its too bright while it is on the bright side, its not over the top. I recommend powder pink for a more subdued pink if you are scared of pale pink. You really cannot go wrong with any pot rouge.

Pale Pink has quickly become my go-to everyday colour: I either wear it alone for a youthful pink flush to my cheeks or layer it on top of bronzer. Neither too bubble-gummy nor too dull, I think this would suit a large variety of skin tones. I also really like the formula: highly pigmented, quite hard and dense it may take a little bit longer to blend out, but it does last all day without feeling sticky. Definitely my most-reached-for cream blush and one that I would surely repurchase!

This stuff is just delicious. Apart from being practical, wearable and easy to apply, it's just a nice thing to HAVE. It comes in a nice little jar and it's so creamy and such a lovely bright pink colour and it smells like flowers. If, like me, you can't resist yummy smelling lip balms in cute tins and that kind of thing, Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge is a covetable treasure. I can't resist reaching for it.

As other reviewers have said, it's a bright peony pink in the pot (alliteration!), but on your cheeks it's a really natural rosy flush. It's totally buildable but impossible to overdo. Due to illness I'm about as pale as it is possible for a living and non-zombified person to be, so I tend to go with a pale foundation (Estee Lauder's Double Wear in 'Shell' - the old formula) and then layer on blush with a fairly generous hand, starting from the middle of the apple of my cheek and blending (REALLY thoroughly) back towards my temples until I've achieved a healthy glow. This is the most natural way to brighten my complexion without looking orange or muddy, and the rosy flush of Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge in Pale Pink is the ideal shade.

Because Estee Lauder Double Wear is long wearing and sets quickly, I do find it a bit tricky to blend cream blushes over my base, so I use my fingers to pat this in. It warms everything through and helps to blend the blush. This shade has absolutely no shimmer, but it does have a very subtle dewy sheen, so it makes your cheeks look plump and fresh. If you want a natural lit-from-within radiance, this is the product.

The cons are few, but for me I find this blush less long-wearing than a powder blush, and because of my base it's a little bit more time consuming also. I may purchase the same shade in Bobbi's Powder Blush for days when I'm doing a full face of makeup and keep the Pot Rouge for those days when I'm aiming for something a bit lighter and cleaner. The only other downside is that, compared to other cream blushes (like NARS) it's very sticky in the pot, so I find that no matter how hard I try to keep in clean, it does attract tiny particles of fluff. This isn't really a big deal and doesn't diminish the effectiveness of the product, I just thought I should mention it.

I suspect this will be a staple for me, and I'd recommend it to anyone. I can picture this shade and formula working on a variety of skin tones and with a huge spectrum of makeup looks. This is the rouge for people who love makeup, and it's the rouge for the people who hardly wear any makeup. You can't go wrong. It's just very, very pretty!

I would never have selected this color without doing a lot of research first, as the words "pale" and "pink" aren't generally good news for my tan olive skin. Bobbi Brown's pot rouge, however, is the exception to that seemingly unbreakable rule. It leaves my cheeks with a soft, natural-looking flush that wears well even in the hottest weather. (And did I forget to mention that my oily skin eats blush for breakfast?) This and Calypso Coral have immediately become my staple blushes. Not only are the colors flattering, but application is fool-proof (just a tiny bit of rouge blended with the fingers onto the cheeks), the packaging is sleek, and the price is fair given the amount of product you receive versus the amount you actually apply per wearing. What's not to love? I will definitely repurchase.
