Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge: Pale Pink & Calypso Coral

I bought these because I wanted something I could take with me and use on my lips and cheeks to get a coordinating lip/cheek look. It was important for me that they work well on the lips because you can technically use any cream blush on the lips (and I tend to do so) but some work better than others.

Formula (cheeks)
Pot Rouges are super creamy, pigmented, and they wear for a long time. I prefer cream blushes over powders because they last longer and look more natural. The drawback is that creams take more time and care to apply and blend. Pot Rouges "set" so they last all day until I take my makeup off. They do retain a little dewiness that looks super natural and pretty.  
Formula (lips)
They feel thin and liquid-y on the lips, like a stain. If your lips are dry I suggest using a balm first because the thin texture will show your lip imperfections. It won't dry them out, just show what is already there. Other than that, they are comfortable to wear and the stain lasts a long time.
Pigmentation
They are very pigmented. You need the smallest amount, specially with Calypso Coral which is pretty bright in person. I just dab my stippling brush in them once and that is enough for both cheeks.
Packaging
The pot packaging of Pale Pink is the old one (which I like better). It has been replaced with a compact that has a mirror. The compact is nice but contains less product (0.38 oz vs 0.13) yet the price stayed the same!

Overall, I give Bobbi Brown Pot Rouges an A+. If I had to name and all-time favorite makeup product it would be this!

  7. A+ - that's great. Cannot wait to try these. How do they compare to drugstore cream blushes?

    1. I can't say :( I've only tried the NYC Convertible Color Sticks which are now discontinued. I don't know of any drugstore cream blushes besides the new Revlon ones (which I want to try) and the NYX ones (which are hard for me to find). xxx

  8. Wow, these are both gorgeous shades and so flattering on you! Glad you're loving the formula! I think Pale Pink might be a bit too cool-toned for my skin, but Calypso Coral looks right up my alley :)

    1. I haven't tried the Stila ones yet but they seem amazing. I think they must be pretty much the same product except the Stila ones have a better color selection. xx

  18. I've heard so many great things about the Pot Rouges and your review seals the deal - I think I might just make one of these my first Bobbi Brown purchase. Calypso Coral looks perfect for our Southern summer!

  20. Woowww I really like Pale Pink. They really did remove a ton of product when they changed the packaging! I may have to pick one of these up since they're your all time favorite beauty product.
