This is my HG blush. I own four of these (Powder Pink, Pale Pink, Pink Raspberry, Calypso Coral) but the Powder pink is my favourite (I have two - one in my bathroom and one in my bag). I absolutely love this blush. Here are the reasons why:1) Amazing colour - I think this would suit almost any fairish skintone from NC15-NC30. I am NC20 and this is perfect for me. I have introduced it to so many friends of different ethnic cultures and skintones and it looks great on all of them. Powder Pink a lovely peachy-pink with a hint of beige (but not brown). It is neutral toned and gives you that healthy, flushed, lit from within look. I know NARS Orgasms is touted as a universally flattering powder blush, but in my opinion, for a cream blush (on fair skin) this takes the cake. In comparison, Pale Pink (my second favourite) is a more cool toned baby pink. Pink Raspberry is extremely similar to Pale Pink but is slightly warmer. Calypso Coral looks scary bright orange/pink in the pot but goes on a bright happy coral pink (brighter and with less beige than Powder Pink).2) Longlasting. This lasts all day on me (12 hours), when all other blushes fail. (ie. Stila convertible, Benefit Posie Tint, powder blushes in NARS and Shu Uemura)3) Very natural slightly dewy finish. I dislike blushes that look too powdery or shimmery. Makes you look healthy and not obviously like you are wearing blush (unless you pack it on). 4) Extremely pigmented. One pot will last FOREVER. You only need the smallest amount. It spreads easily and does not slide around your face like Stila does on me.NB: I notice that the formulations slightly vary depending on the shade of Pot Rouge. I notice that Powder Pink and Calypso Coral are definitely drier and slightly less sheer than Pale Pink and Pink Raspberry. The only formulation that is moist enough for me to wear on the lips is Pale Pink.

I use this as a blush and lipstick all the time! It's the perfect neutral pink. In general, Makes my cheeks and lips dewy, but if it's dry out, it'll look more matte. Easy to apply and blend out and I can build it up for more color if desired. It lasts all day on my cheeks too, granted I don't accidentally swipe my face on something. On my lips, the staying power isn't so great. Overall, this is what made me fall in love with BB's Pot Rouges.

i used this mostly on my lips, and it looks so natural, matte, and lasts long. as a blush, the color looks really nice on my asian skin, it is quite highly pigmented as well. it doesnt last as long as i expected though, with me having to reapply every 3 or 4 hours. but ive heard that that is quite normal for a blush. The preventive measure is definitely applying foundation and primer before. I'm going to buy a different shade soon. i highly recommend this.

This is a beautiful, subtle rosey pink that looks fantastic with my NW20 skintone. Be careful though, when I say subtle I don't mean sheer, it's HIGHLY pigmented and extremely easy to overdo- often what looks good under the yellow lights of my bathroom looks overdone in natural light. I suggest applying it next to a window and only using two tiny dabs on each cheek (one of the apple one a bit higher) and blending well. The result- subtle, gorgeous, blushing cheeks that brighten my whole face up.

Fantastic blush. It imparts a very natural flush of colour and lasts for several hours. As it is creamy can be easily reapplied without creating a mess. It takes just a tiny amount of product and the result is impressive. Not sticky, it is not shiny on the skin, no glitter. I use my fingers or a brush to appy it.It can be used also on the lips, but it is a little bit pale for me and I have to add a balm or clear lip gloss as it is too dry in this area. Overall an excellent product.

I am giving this a good rating even though this is not my best color. I have never liked cream blush. It took me a while to realize how little it takes of this product, but I like the natural look of it and it lasts well on the skin. This color is just too bright for me. I am very light-alabaster/porcelain with blue undertones. I have more pink in my cheeks now than I did a few years ago and this is the color pink I am trying to hide in my cheeks. I like the pale pink a lot better. I think this is a good color to match brownie pink lipstick. Powder pink is just a little too warm and bright on me. The BB online makeup artist recommeded pale pink for me or the sheer version is lilac or lavender, I can't remember which, and I really like the formula. I am getting to like the cream version better than powder now that I have the technique down better. It is definitely worth a try. I put it on several times at night just to get the hang of it, when I did not have to go anywhere. I hated it at first, but am glad I hung in there.

This is now my new favorite blush! I have been looking for a cream blush just because I like the fact that I can travel with it without having to carry a brush. However, I do use a brush to apply it (I'm using Sonia Kashuk's synthetic flat top brush and I absolutely love this brush!). The color is very blendable but also very pigmented. I only dab my brush 1-2x max into the pot and this is all that I need. I agree with the other reviewer who mentioned that adding powder on top seems to make it last much longer. Without any powder blush on top I think the staying power is about 6 hours. At the end of these 6 hours there was still some blush left but definitely not the same pop as color as in the morning. Also I do use my fingers sometimes to put on this product and I find there isn't much difference than from using a brush. Lastly I do not use this for my lips at all which is a shame. On my lips the powder pink looks very fake and is not complimentary. Regardless I love this as a blush and will definitely try another color in the pot rouge.

Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium, Not Sure
A great product all in. The pigment looks heavy in the pot and with my oily skin I was worried that it was too sticky. But it goes on smoothly with fingers or a blush brush and leaves a natural flush on my medium, yellow-toned skin without clogging pores. The colour is natural and wearable. I find it suits both an everyday, go-to-work look and a more elaborate, evening style of makeup.The colour does need to be built up carefully because the pigment can't be used with a heavy hand but I find ultimately the finish is pretty. Set under some pressed powder I also find this has longer staying power than an easier-to-apply powder blush. It's expensive and the open pot looks like a bacteria trap, especially as I often apply with fingers. But only a small quantity is needed and after a year of heavy use I've barely used 10%! So cost per wear is low.I find it a useless lip product though. It's dry and too densely coloured on my lips, but comes off in a minute with lipbalm or lipgloss to counter these effects.

This is absolutely amazing and was recommended to me by the SA at the Bobbi Brown counter in Nordstrom. I wasn't sure this color was going to work for me, I'm NC15 and super pale, but this actually just looks like a natural, pretty flush. I adore this pot rouge! I was initially shocked by the $22 price tag- the container looked so small and I wasn't sure I'd be getting my money's worth- other cream blushes I've purchased in the past haven't been that pigmented or have been in really ridiculous colors that made me look like a bizarre doll, but NOT THIS ONE. I seriously love this. I've had mine for about 2 years and I'm thinking it's about time to replace it. You only need to use the tiniest amount to get a good, even color to your cheeks and it blends pretty much effortlessly. Love this, will def. buy again!

I was looking for a cream blush and a MA (who worked for a different cosmetic brand) suggested this. I honestly was a bit unsure because the color looked a little blah in the container and I thought it would look a little off - I can’t really explain it but never mind that because I was wrong…gladly so. This blush turned out to be a beautiful, natural flush of color that works well with just about any tone of pink, plum, or nudes on my lips or eyes. The part I found most tricky was the application but this lady was so kind to show me different methods - a stipple brush (aka skunk) worked best for me, with fingers she tapped and rolled gently over the apples of my cheeks (if that makes sense) and I liked that way of applying too. I found that using a foundation brush was a bit odd for me; I just couldn’t get it to work right. Oh yeah…she told me not to rub it on with fingers as it would be too hard to blend and could end up looking like 80’s stripes, haha! I like this as a lip color as well but not alone, I pair it with a bit of gloss. I think the pot will last a long, long time as you only need a little bit. So taking all these factors into account…high price but long lasting and little needed equals very good buy if you ask me.
