This is a really great product. I have Pink Truffle and Powder Pink. Perfect texture. I have tried other cream blushes (Nars) and multi-use products (Nars, Stila, WnW, E.L.F.). Nars cream blush just does not come in many non-shimmery colors. Nars Multiples are either shimmer city (I tried 6 of them) or they fill my pores in a really unattractive way. Stila convertible color is too greasy on the cheeks and too milky on the lips. WnW 3-in-1s are a great texture, but too shimmery. This lasts all day on my oily skin and looks very natural. And the texture on the lips is to die for. Not greasy, not drying, weightless. I want them all. Sure, it's probably 14 cents worth of product. But how could you ever use one up? You need just a tiny bit. This is an incredible value. I carry only this and foundation stick in my purse.

I love this blush. I always get compliments when I wear it--not people saying, "Nice blush," but people saying "You look really pretty!" This never, never happens to me. I used to never wear blush because I thought the colors makeup artists put on me looked really muddy and gross on my lightly tanned Asian skin, especially as the day wore on and the oilyness of my skin turned any sparkle in the blush (I'm talking to you, NARS Sin) into greasy shine. I'm used to being offered blushes that are mocha-y in tone and looked more like bronzer than blush on my skin. This one is truly a natural, pink flush (natural if I ever blushed). It is a little dry to put on my lips, and over balm it tends to ball up and turn into nasty specks on my lips, but I will continue using it as a blush! The packaging is also very sleek and expensive looking (probably because it IS expensive).

I love this blush. It's probably the most natural looking blush that I've ever used. It is a perfect shade for me and probably anyone else that's reading this. The colour doesn't change or fade and makes even my 62 year old face look bright and fresh. This is my first Pot Rouge and before I bought it I had one of the MA show me how to apply it. She used a foundation brush so I do as well. The handy tip I picked up from her was to brush on a little layer of moisturiser before you tap the blush into place. For mature skin like mine this makes a huge difference in the way it looks and also makes it easier to blend. I have my eye on a couple of other shades already but this particular one is Desert Island stuff.

I was looking for a cream blush, so when walking through Nordstrom one day, I stopped by the Bobbi Brown counter. The ladies recommended Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks - Powder Pink. I tried it at the store and thought it looked cute - the ladies at the counter agreed. However, the more I wore it, the more I felt that it was too much for my fair skin and made me look like a hooker. I think if you were the 'perfect' complexion, this would be great. As for a lip rouge, it is very drying.

Perfect, perfect, perfect. NC30+ slightly olive/golden skin, dark brown eyes & hair. This is the perfect pink blush. It looks natural, truly fresh and brightens up my face. After working my way through most of the BB pot rouges I can say this is my favorite shade and I'm trimming down to this as the only pink one. With Velvet Plum and Milk Chocolate I feel I have a full wardrobe! No more searching for a pink cream blush.

I use this as a blush- and it is my favourite cream blush ... I have never tried this on my lips, and probably will not.
It is has a good consistency and is easy to apply. It is not oily and does not make my skin breakout. This product lasts for a long time.
The color is really beautiful and looks really flawless and natural on my skin. I almost got blushed rose instead but I already have alot of browny/pink blushes.
I have got alot of compliments about this blush ... and I would highly recommend it.
The only downside of it, is that it is quite expensive.

I have dry skin so this blush works well for me. I also have a difficult olive complexion that is very hard to get a good natural looking blush for. This one suits me very well, and blends easily. I do not have to tug. A little goes a long way, however, so be careful not to look like a clown!

I love this. i use it mainly for lip color although as a blush its great too i just find it difficult to smudge in properly. would definitely buy this again!

I wasn't all that wild about the Pot Rouges when they were first launched, but since then the texture and finish has really grown on me and I've ended up adding a few to my collection. Powder Pink is my latest aquisition and possibly the most flattering of the 5 I've tried. This is a medium warm pink. It looks brownish in the pot but blossoms into a lovely rose w/ a hint of coral on my fair skin. I wear BB foundation in Warm Ivory for color reference. I stipple it on and blend out using my SK synthetic flat-topped blush brush and this applies just the right amount of this very pigmented and emollient cream. The finish is phenomenal--naturally dewy and lasts all day. You cannot get this healthy dewy look from ANY powder blush--no shimmer, just GLOW. I am completely enchanted by how I look wearing this--not something a product can make me say very often, lol. These Pot Rouges have never made me break out. Although pricey, I use so very little each time--I barely even touch the surface of the pot so they will last practically forever if they don't dry out first. I purchased my first one over a year ago and it's still moist and creamy--no signs of drying out yet, so overall excellent value. I will buy this shade, and other Pot Rouges again.

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.
