I love Bobbi Brown makeup and I honestly don't know why I do not own more. These cream blush/lip color is another BB love for me. When I was a child, my mother often used a cream lipstick as her blush, also. So this brings back memories of that. Anyway, this is really nice. As usual, I appreciate the non-gimmicky, easy to open and close packaging. The mirror is nice for lip color application, but is really too small for anything else. But obviously I did not buy this for a mirror, but the mirror is a nice touch. This applies effortlessly and is so natural-looking on my NC20 skin. Sort of a lit from within glow, and the lip color gives a really nice natural "no makeup makeup" look. I get no irritation from, this, and I detect no scent. Very pleased with this cream blush. Looking to order maybe another shade or two, but this shade "Powder Pink" works well with my skin tone. So easy to apply, you can even just use your (impeccably clean) fingertips and smooth this on, this glided on almost effortlessly. Same for the lip color, can use fingertips and apply for a nice sheer wash of lip color. Love.

I love this product so much! For some reason, Temptalia doesn't rate this product so well. I am a cheek stain/tint kind of person due to my dry skin. I always feel like powder blushes never look as natural on me. While this doesn't last as long as Benefit's Cha Cha Tint, this stays long enough for me and without the orange fingers. It also works better on the lips than the Cha Cha Tint. I find that on the cheeks, this lasts for 8 hours and then fades over time. It applies a bit tacky for the first 30 seconds then sets in to a moisturising but not sticky finish afterwards. You can also set this with a translucent powder to make it more matte. What I love about this is that it works great as a lip cream. It almost is as pigmented as a lipstick. Contrary to other reviews, it doesn't feel any more drying than a regular lipstick. It feels just as hydrating in fact as their Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip line. However, it simply does not stay longer than 3 hours on the lips. I don't mind so much because I end up drinking water or snacking every three hours so the lipstick transfer is inevitable with any lipstick. Powder pink is such a nice, warm pink colour. I initially wanted to get Calypso Coral but was wowed by the more natural flushed pink that powder pink provides. On my lips, it applies much lighter/paler but not in a faded/anemic way but more of a MLBB way. It also sets a more wearable colour after a few seconds of applying and blending on the lips. I would definitely purchase more shades.

This reminds me of how MAC Tenderling would wear on me. As with most pinky brown shades this turns a touch orangey on my nw20 deep winter complexion. I love the Pot Rouge blushes, they are my favorite non powder blushes. And even though this does skew a touch on the orange turning side for me it still stays in the wearable side. It actually gives me quite a 90's vibe when I wear just this on my cheeks and lips. If anyone is reading this thinking my comments about it being orange "is so wrong", it is something that happens to some of us where we pull out warm tones in shades that have a tiny bit in them. I am not a lone. For example UD Naked lipstick looks like a lovely pink on my friend, on looks orange.

I am ranking this at 4 lippies as opposed to the 3 I gave Pale Pink because something about this shade works on me..lights me up a touch more. Pale Pink just sat there. I also feel this is one of those more uber neutral shades that will compliment a wider array of skin tones and makeup looks.

The best cream blush out there! Powder pink is a neutral natural pink blush on my medium toned skin. Its super easy to apply and blend on the cheeks and does not emphasise pores. I can use my fingers to dot and blend or sometimes use my BB foundation brush to blend and pat into skin when I have more time. The blush is a very pigmented creamy texture that is not sticky at all. It's very Long lasting and I can still see it on me after 8 hours of wear. Love the sleek packaging too which also has a mirror inside the compact. I'm so tempted to get more Colours!

If I lost all of my Bobbi Brown pot rouges (heaven forbid) and had to start all over again, the Powder Pink would be the first one I'd get, along with Uber Beige.

Powder Pink looks similar to Uber Beige in the compact but on my cheeks, it gives me a fresh, light pink flush. I like it more than Pale Pink (that colour is rather bright despite the name) for an everyday, natural look.

Powder Pink would work very well with fair to medium skin tones; I wouldn't recommend it for darker skin tones. It's a brown based neutral pink.
The staying power of the pot rouges is superb and they give me that 'glow from within' look.
No fading, no sinking into pores and looks great even after a long day.
A little goes a long way and I like to blend with my Sephora #49 contour brush.
I find the pot rouges too drying for my lips so I don't use it as a lipstick.

Another winner from Bobbi Brown.

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge comes in an adorable flip-top case with a mirror in the lid. It's a cream blush but can also be used as lip color, like Stila's Convertible Colors.

Powder Pink is one of the best colors for dual use, although it's better as blush. It really looks like a natural flush of pink because it has a bit of nude to it, and it's similar to one's own natural lip color. It looks good on most people who are ivory to medium in skin tone.

It's formulated so you can use fingers to apply this and it's very blendable that way. Makeup artists will wield a lip brush and/or sponge, but once you purchase your own pot rouge, you'll probably end up dipping your fingertips in it. So, it's not the most hygienic thing in the world, but it's like finger-painting and that's fun.

If you're fair it's easy to apply too much. Start with the tiniest dab and build from there to avoid looking like an extra from Moulin Rouge. The texture is not greasy or heavy or tacky. I apply to cheeks and lips and can't really feel it on my lips - it does not have the feel of lipstick or gloss, but something more sheer. The pigment stays well on cheeks.

It's neat to have and something of a space saver for the suitcase because you can use the product 2 ways. Bobbi Brown keeps introducing new colors, expanding the range and the desire for something new. I am happy with Powder Pink, a safe bet for most gals, but immediately was tempted by the Telluride colors when they came out.

$29 per compact.

(Bobbi Brown started her own company in the 1990s, but like MAC, has been swallowed by Estee Lauder and is subject to their corporate policies.)

I've been using this over 6 months now. Here`s how my love affair with powder pink started!

At first, I was hesitant... this is cream blush! Living right on the equator in crazy temperatures... humidity and all... in my mind, this was already confirming my worst fears. Breakouts! Then, I heard this was used by some royal bride and being a typical sucker that I am... I caved in. The BB MUA taught me, applying a BB foundation brush tapping onto the apples of my cheeks and blending towards the ears. I also like the tips from youtube`s BB Royal MUA Hannah Martin`s technique of patting the color down with your finger, this literally dissolves the color onto the cheeks. It looks so natural. It doesnt leave a sticky feeling and no breakouts!!! yay!!!

Despite the hot weather, remarkably it didnt melt on me and lasted a good 6 hours. This even lasts when i go out salsa dancing and in spite of all that sweating, the color lasts and this is evident in all my FB photos where im tagged. yipeee!!!

Im NC37, and it looks really pink on me. I also double this as a lipstick and apply BB gloss in "Pink Sequin" & BB lipliner in "Brownie Pink". Its absolutely gorgeous!!!

To my surprise, I fell in love with the product. All I can say is never judge a cream blusher by its texture. Im going to hit the pan very soon and this is by far the best color i've ever invested in. Im planning to use this for my wedding. All thanks to that royal bride,Zara Philips!

While I love cream blushes they tend not to last on my combination skin. I`ve been using 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip&Cheek for a natural every day look, and while I would honestly prefer sticking to all natural products, this one simply evaporates within the hour and leaves behind a sticky film. So when the sales lady at Bobbi Brown recommended this cream blush I bought it, with trepidation. The color looked amazing, not at all like make-up, but like I`d just finished a brisk jog on a cold morning. I apply it sparingly, with fingers or a brush, and it stays put throughout the day! Yay.I love the packaging, too, the slick mirror that makes retouches easy (though haven`t had to!) And it works really well as a lip color, too. I will update on how well this lasts in hotter weather.

This is my everyday go-to blush atm. NC20, shows up matte peachy w/a tiny warm-pink hue. I am applying w/a blush brush which I cannot identify as I've had it forever. I apply it rather thinly and sometimes top it w/a tap of something like Cargo Big Easy powder blush to add a barely visible shimmer and some more staying power. I really don't want to take the time to play w/it in the morning and like the packaging a lot as it is so easy to get to w/brush or finger. Easy blush application, nice even coverage. I have had it for awhile so if they have reissued in smaller pkg, mine is the older larger pot. I occasionally use this on my lips as a stain and top it w/gloss as on its own it is quite drying and just too pale for lips. I will never run out of it and not likely to is a good product but can undoubtedly be duped at a lower price. I got this and Pale Pink online w/a 20% off code. TBH I doubt I would have walked into a dept. store and paid full price for it.

Love this product, I got it as a present and have to admit, I was unsure. I had never tried pot rouge but I loved it although it did take a bit longer to apply. If you make a mistake, it is quite difficult to correct as it's so well pigmented. It has a nice not over-powering scent and my skin didnt seem to react. Overall, I like this product but I definitely prefer to use it on my lips. Lovely colour. My tip would be less it more though when it comes to this blush.
