I purchased this along with the nectar shimmerbrick which I love and use a lot but I am slightly disappointed in this one. It looked good in the store but when I got home it looked too orange. I can correct this by using a pinkier blush but that ruins the slightly glossy finish that I love. I think I prefer the calypso coral to this. I tried this on a darker girlfriend of mine who is NC40 and it looked better on her but on me (NC20-25, NC 30 in summer), this looks unnatural. I am finding that I am not really reaching for this at all.

i have several pot rouges and really love them. pigment is just right, they last all day (although i rarely wear them without a complimentary powder blush on top), easy to apply with my 188. (i make a mess with fingers).
i don't really care for most of them on the lips because the colors are off but the cabo coral is nice under one of the coral glosses.
i probably won't repurchase because these tend to last so long that they will likely be long gone by the time i finish them. for this reason, i'm also willing to pay the steep price.
they really are a great cream blush because of their great coloring and staying power.

Very happy with this. I apply under my powder with my cream blush brush and then top off the apples after powder with same brush. Beautiful coral on me. It's my first pot rouge and would happily buy more. Love the colour.

I agree with all of the positive reviews of this product. I have discontinued my use of Nars Orgasm and use this in its place since it is the same color with out all the sparkles! Love it and would definitely re-purchase!

This is a nice product but its too orange. This was described as peach with slight mauve undertones but its actually orange with brown. The calyso coral is much better. I have yellow undertones and this really makes me look yellow, I look jaundiced. I have seen a few people wear this and while they think it looks natural, it really doesnt, it doesnt contain enough pink for it to look like a natural blush colour. The SA even did not recommend this for me but said pinkier ones like pink truffle and powder pink look best on yellow/olive. Best for pinkier undertones. This is honestly a straight up orange no matter what spin of words is used to describe it. With orange blushes I think Cargo Rome and Pout Apricot Totty are much better choices.

Released with the January 2010 Cabana Corals Collection
Product - I love BB Pot Rouges, so of course I had to try this one. BB calls this a "pink nectar." In the pot it looks like a vibrant peachy coral with nude undertones. This shade gives my AAB/NC25 cheeks a peachy glow. Nice texture, creamy and moist (but not greasy), but sheer and buildable. I prefer to use a foundation brush and lip brush but fingertips work well too. On my lips the coral tones really come through - a little bright for lipcolor for my preference, but workable and very summery. Wears on lips like a glossy demi-sheer lipcolor and feels great. Staying power is reasonably good on both cheeks and lips.
Comparisons - Compared to the other BB pot rouge shades... Cabo Coral is less pink, more peachy than Calypso Coral, and more peachy than and brighter than Stonewashed Pink. I was expecting Cabo Coral to be a toned down version of Calypso Coral, and instead it's more like Calypso Coral's peachy sister. Very darn close to BECCA creme blush in Freesia; Freesia is a wee tad deeper and a wee bit more terracotta or rusty toned; Cabo Coral has a very slight bit more pink in it but not much.
Packaging - Wide, shallow pot with sleek black screwtop lid. Portable, sturdy, and sleek.
Overall - For me (AAB/NC25), this shade gives a peachy glow on cheeks and a brighter peachy-coral lip. Great multi-use product line from BB, this is a good shade but I don't reach for it as often as the others.

Just wanting to add my two cents here as I am cool toned (MAC NW15/BB Porcelain) and light skinned and was quite pleasantly surprised that this works so well on my skin tone. Usually, anything that spells remotely *orange*, be it blush or lipstick, tends to look clownish on me.
Shade: Cabo Coral is a peachy kind of coral where the peach is dominating. It is that genius touch of peach which makes for the prettiest soft peachy glow when applied. So no worries, there is no orange overload whatsoever in this shade.
Packaging: I really like the round pots the Pot Rouges come in, they are sturdy, travel well and give a nice large surface to pick up the product with my fingertips when applying. I have also used the slanted Taklon cheek cream brush from Paula Dorf which works well to apply cream blushes, but I find that using my fingertips is just perfect for blending it so the result looks completely natural and it's even faster in the morning when every minute counts...
Overall: I love the Pot Rouges for their versatility and staying power on my dry skin. Most powder blushes I apply in the morning are gone my midday, whereas the Pot Rouges stay on all day. Cabo Coral is a great addition to the line. Retails for $22.

Cabo Coral was released in late January 2010 as part of Bobbi Brown's Cabana Corals spring 2010 collection. It is a beautiful addition to the line and stands out from many of the other brownish and pink shades that seem to dominate the blushes and lip colors. There is a range of shades that people define as "coral," and Cabo Coral is on the peachy side of that range. The texture is similar to that of the other Pot Rouges - slick, slightly tacky, slightly creamy without leaving a sticky finish. Blending is relatively easy, and the product is buildable so that you can apply lightly and add color as needed. It is hard to make a big mistake when applying this. Staying power is excellent.
Those of you who already are familiar with the Pot Rouge collection are probably curious about how Cabo Coral compares to Calypso Coral. I swatched both on my arm and also had the sales associate apply them to opposite cheeks. The most obvious difference is that Calypso Coral is much pinker. In fact, when comparing side-by-side applications, Cabo Coral is obviously a peachy coral, whereas Calypso Coral really pulls pink on me. Calypso Coral is perhaps also slightly brighter, but both colors are clean looking and vibrant. On my lips Cabo Coral shows up a light-medium pinky peach, a little less dark than it appears in the pan.
Overall, I'm very pleased with Cabo Coral and I expect to reach for it regularly this spring and summer. Kudos, too, to Bobbi Brown for adding a non-lookalike shade to the lineup.
