Gorgeous colour, long lasting, and easy to blend. Don't have much to add to the existing reviews, except it's a great blush. *Edit* August 16, 2007: It turns out that this is a bit warm for my skin tone. My reigning favourite is now summer pink.

This is a gorgeous product. I chose the colour Powder Pink for a more natural look on my fair, warm ivory skin tone. I found that, even with my oily skin, this is fairly difficult to blend well, so you really need to have well moisturized cheeks before hand. But I simply pat it on and this warms it up a little, allowing me to blend it well. The colour looks different on than in the pot, it just really makes me look fresh and healthy. I've taken to doing a swipe of the Beige Shimmerbrick on my cheek bones after applying the pot rouge and WOW!!! Stunning look. Love love love this product!!! Also I've recently started to dab this on my lips to keep the colour the same as my cheeks. Then I added a slick of the BB Brightening gloss in White and voila, pure gorgeous lips!!

This is a neutral medium pink with a touch of brown to mute it a bit. No shimmer at all. This adds a super-natural soft wash of color that would look good on probably most complexions. Due to the fact that it's a cream, it melts into skin and looks more natural than powder. Pot Rouges have a stiffer texture than most cream blushes, more like lipstick, and are intensely pigmented. I use a skunk brush to apply mine in order to build up the color slowly and get a really, really natural look and finish. Applied this way, this is strikingly similar to NARS cream blush in Penny Lane on me (light, yellow undertones),though they are not at all similar colors.
If I want more intensity, I touch the pads of my fingers to the surface (without swiping), then pat it onto the apples of my cheeks (this works as well or better than blending in circular motions since it won't disrupt your foundation or concealer. I was skeptical of this method too, but it does work very well. Just keep patting until it's blended in).
Plus, it actually looks pretty on my lips, making this a truly versatile item. And the lasting power is surprisingly good for a cream. I also love the chic, minimalist packaging and lack of fragrance. The price isn't too bad either, considering how much product you get. Love!

Love this product!
I've always been fascinated by Bobbi Brown's chic and minimal packaging and makeup philosophy, but had never tried one of her products. Searching for the perfect cream blush, i headed to a Bobbi Brown counter and found this would be the perfect color for my NC20 skin. First, i though it was too highly pigmented, but a little goes a long way, and by dotting just a tiny bit on your well moisturised cheeks and blending,
it just looks like the perfect natural flush of color.
It also works on tanned complexions... I'm beginning to have some color (self-tan of course), and it just makes you look like you came from the beach or from a glorious sunny day at the park.
Also, because you use just a little bit, it goes on for ages.
As for lips, i wouldn't recommend it - at least it didn't work on me.
This chic makeup pot is definitely a must-have!

Powder Pink Pot Rouge is gorgeous (NW20), it kind of looks a ruddy pink in the pot. When you apply it to your cheeks, it doesn't look as ruddy- it kind of takes on a coral-pink hue. (Don't know how accurate my color descriptions are, but I really do like the color.) I don't use this on my lips, I bought it primarily for (face) cheek use. Too bad that it doesn't blend into my skin as flawlessly as MAC's Blushcreme creme blushes, which is why I only gave this 4 lippies. This would be my favorite creme blush of all because of the color, but I have tried applying this with my fingers, make-up sponge, and a skunk brush... and I just can't seem to get the application to look natural. This creme blush is a little tackier in consistency, and I find it really grabs hold of my skin as soon as it touches it and doesn't give me much time for blending. It dries to a powdery finish quite rapidly (I DO like the powdery, matte finish, though), so I feel like this blush can look a little streaky if not applied properly. Usually, I have to blend around the edges with tinted moisturizer just to get it to look right; or, I have to dust some MAC MSF natural (medium) over it to kind of buff out the streaks. I really do like this blush- I just wish it were easier to blend. It needs to be a little more "airy" like those little, creme blush in the pots that Stila used to make. (Do they still make them?)

I adore this product, it's a beautiful pink that works great on my skin tone, I love how much more natural it looks than powder, the container it's definitely not my favorite since I hate sticking my finger in it, so most of the time I try to use a sponge. I haven't had a break out from this which is a major plus. it lasts for a long time but will definitely repurchase!

I love this blush, the best blush around. I prefer s.
creamy blushes, since can be applied more natural than the powdery ones
The texture is great and the colour.... love it
I am a PPP/LLL pale skin wiht yellow undertones (NC20), and this is perfect match
Will buy other colours of the BB pot rouge very soon!

This is a lovely color-- both on my cheeks and lips. (unlike Stila's Convertibles...baaaad on your lips. Ashy!)
I wish it was a bit warmer though, for my NC30 skin. It was a bit on the berry/mauve-ish side for me and I prefer more peachy and warmer tones.
Apply with a stiff foundation brush-- sheer and gorgeous!
The packaging is kinda gross-- not very hygenic, I think.
Not sure if I'd buy this again...still on the search for my HG blush.

Love this color! Works well with my skintone. I use MAC 25-30/C3, Armani HydraGlow #5. When I put it on, it looks like I'm flushed! I can see why some people might think this looks dirty though.. It has some brownish color to it. That's why, I also bought the Pale Pink Pot Rouge (check out my review for that) which adds more POP! to my cheeks. This is my first cheek cream and I'm not having any trouble blending. It stays on for a long time. Again, this is for the girls who want a natural flush, that doesn't look like you're wearing any blush at all. Just voted #1 blush from Seventeen magazine (March 2006) and one of Allure magazine's top picks!

Powder pink is very natural on my pale skin tone with asian yellow base.
I usually don't like to use cream/gel brush as I found it very difficult to blend on skin evenly, yet this Pot Rouge is surprising easy to blend and it has a natural finish.
The concern I have is hygiene as I think it's kind of dirty to touch it with finger. Also, this Pot Rouge can only go with Foundation. The MUA told me that it's difficult to blend on top of foundation powder.

This is my first time having a blushcreme with BB Pot Rouge in Powder Pink! I have oily skinby mid-day and this baby stays longer than i expected. Even though the price is quite expensive but i'm loving it. Portable, Simple, Lovely and Easy to apply! Definetly will buy again :P

This is my 3rd shade of Pot Rouge. I'm an NC35 Latina. At first I thought this blush would bee too pale for me, but it looks like a natural flush. And a light swipe on my lips gives me a just-bitten look. I'm shocked, but very happy it works! The great thing about the Pot Rouge product is that it's double-duty and had seriously cut down on the amount of products I have to lug with me. The product has just the right amount of pigment, not too sheer and not too dense. Having the same colour blush & lips is not for everyone, but I find it to be a very polished look. Also, adding a slightly different lip gloss can change it up a bit. I hope BB comes out with more shades.

This was my first cream blush from Bobbie Brown and I'm not dissapointed. (I'm glad companies are starting to come out with cream blushes!) This pink blush is very natural on, more of a warm pink similar to peony cc from stila, but nicer, and a little less pinky than Mac's ladyblush, a touch of brown, but doesn't look brown on skin. I love wearing it in the summer when I'm self-tan, as lilicent from Mac doesn't show up on my skin when I'm tan. Someone from the Lancome counter asked me what blush I had on, it looks so nice!

Another great introduction for me into the realm of cream blushes. The texture is a firm cream, like lipstick in the tube; firmer than BB matte lip stains, softer than LM creme blush. Holds up well with a foundation brush or fingers, but still soft enough to use with a lip brush too. I use this on both my cheeks and lips. Feels moist but not greasy. The color is the usual BB pinkish nude neutral color that should work for just about everyone. On my AAB/NC25 skin, the color is very natural and actually turns a little to the warm side of pink. Blends easily with fingers or foundation brush. Buildable. Doesn't make my skin any oilier at the end of the day, so that was a pleasant surprise. Staying power is reasonably good on both cheeks and lips. I love the packaging too - very portable yet sturdy. Looking forward to trying more colors! UPDATE: This is my favorite shade of pot rouge for everyday - perfect shade for both my lips and cheeks.

I've got slightly tanned olive skin (and oily one). Normally, I would avoid pinky color as it would quickly disappear on my skin. But after applying this fabulous blusher, it gives me healthy glow cheeks! *big grin* I got those kind of glow that i usually have after working-out in gym. Even my friends complimented how radiant i looked. *chuckle* if only they knew bout BB Pot Rouge!
However, it can be a bit drying on lips. A small problem that can be easily resolved by applying any lip gloss. In terms of packaging, I wish it comes with a mirror like Stila's convertible ones. But BB is still a BIG winner as it has more to offer compared to Stila.

Used as a blush, Pot Rouge is amazing: color is almost a perfect match for my skin, its durability is outstanding and you get a lot of product. I don't find it HARD to blend, but compared to the super blendable and lightly textured Clinique's Touch Blush, it's less blendable and feels greasy to the touch, but once on my cheeks, this feeling disappears and results are the same.
On the other hand, I'm talking two lippies off because I paid for a cheek and lip product, and this is useless as a lip stain.

This has to be one of the best blushes out there. The problem with cream blushes is that they tend to be too greasy and just sit on top and streak and highlight skin imperfections. Not this one. The texture is just perfect, creamy but not greasy, with the right amount of pigment so that you get a glowing, natural colour, that blends into the skin. The colour selection is very good, but powder pink is the one that suits my colouring best for everyday use.

this is my new review for the powder pink pot rouge. some new stocks fortunately arrived in our country, and i'm so glad! i really like the subtle color it lends on my cheeks so i'm not boring-pale. i liked it even more when i tried using it with a brush (a real cheapo, actually). applying with a brush made all the difference for me. the effect is much more subtle and yet dramatic at the same time, if that makes sense to you. it has a slight waxy smell though, but it fades after a while and it doesn't really bother me anyway. i'm getting the calypso coral next. yeyy!
EDIT: by the way, i forgot to mention that this really stays on like a cheek stain and practically lasts the whole day! if you have oily skin and tend to steer clear of cream blush, you have to try this!

When I asked the artist at the counter to recommend a shade of this and she offered the " powder pink" , I was hesitant-- sounded too babyish -- but I am a loyal BB user and so I tried it. Ive used powder blush for--ever! But this is creamy and such a natural rose.No problems with oiliness here, my skin is slightly dry. So many people since have come up to me and asked what I use on my skin to make it glow so naturally! Its this pot rouge! I do NOT however, like it on lips as well as BB lip shine and am not a fan of having my lips exactly match my cheeks!But, as for blush, I think this is much more natural looking that the powder stuff, and perfect to transition your fading tan into autumn and to look more radiant and healthy despite your somewhat stressful life!

okay, i admit i was actually quite alarmed when trempot said there were such few stocks left from the last wave of shipments here in manila. so i tried it on before finally heading home from work, but as i wanted to check its staying power on my oily skin, i told the MA i would just come back for it the next day. i was set on buying it already, but then someone hoarded stocks and i didn't get to have one for me! *gulp* but then after much disappointment for not having been able to buy one, i finally admitted to myself that it wasn't that gorgeous on me anyway (not sourgraping here), so it's also good i didn't get in the counter in time.
here's my actual review: i had the MA try it on me, but i just applied a different cream blush from the mac counter so maybe the cleanser she used didn't take off the blush well? anyway, the powder pink pot rouge didn't really make such a difference on my complexion. i saw some pink and thought to myself, "hmmm.." on my hand, the shade was so pretty and easy to blend! i'm thinking maybe i still had some of the mac cream blush left on my cheeks when i tried powder pink on, thus the brownish/dark-ish pink i saw on my cheeks. oh well, i wouldn't get the chance now to really know 'coz i won't be able to purchase one now. *sigh*
