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.

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.

love it. this is a great color. it may not look at that amazing in the pot, but on the cheeks it gives you a naturally flushed look. pinky cheeks is what i get when i wear this, the sort of cheeks you get when you get flushed from being too hot. the formula is so amazing, i am so impressed. its not greasy and sticky. it just sinks into your skin and becomes part of it. it blends great! i love these pot rouges.

This is a highly pigmented cream blush. Because it is so pigmented, it is difficult to use because you have to blend, blend and blend. The formula is great on the skin. Its not sticky or greasy and feels like any other powder blush but gives a dewy look. The color is a little tawny. Not pink although called powder pink. I tried it on my lips but the color didn't look natural there and it was too dry.

Love this BB pot rouge. I have tried and am swapping away others (Sandwash Pink, Calypso Coral, Pink Truffle, Raspberry Pink, Rose, yada yada) and this is my fav. Looks very natural when used with a stipling brush (TY MissChievous). I can also use this color over lip balm w/gloss on top without looking like a corpse. Great multiuse product.

It's good as a blush, but not as a lip color, altough it's marketed as a multi-task product. It looks better when I apply it with a foundation brush then blend it; doesn't look so good when I apply it with my fingers. I liked it, but didn't exactly LOVED it... anyway, I would buy again in another color.

i really like this for a quick touch up in an emergency (like, for example, running into an ex on campus, and you have zilch makeup on and look quite dead from finishing a paper until 3am the night before)... makes my NC15/20 skin look flushed and healthy. it also worked on my friend who is more of an NC20/25 and also on another that is still darker (guessing about an NC30) - so i can say that it works for women of most skin tones. i apply this with a foundation brush then blend with a sponge or fingers, or if i'm caught without a brush, with a latex sponge or with my fingers. gives a nice dewy, but not sparkly finish, which is what i love. works great when i'm using the competition tanner too, and it's not as scary as it looks in the pan. bobbi blushes tend to look a bit scary but apply really well... and this is no execption.
it lasted through a whole night of sweaty salsa dancing so i know the lasting power is good. i also like it blotted onto lips or under gloss if i have no time to do my makeup. a bit expensive, but hey, you need soooo little that one pot will probably last you a long time, even if you apply it daily. in general, big fan of bobbi in terms of daily neutrals and natural looks. would buy again (if i ever run out).
like i said, it is a bit expensive for a college student, but all her products are generously sized (except for those lip glosses which i find are pretty cr***y) and richly pigmented. i love!
i also had stonewashed pink, but that turned muddy/orange on my skin and made me look tired.
