Time for another review! This time, it's the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Fresh Melon (£18.00). Sorry that I used it before photographing, but I got it the day before I went to Paris and couldn't resist taking it with me! Also sorry for the smudged packaging - it's a lovely design but picks up fingerprints easily.
The Pot Rouge has been recently updated to come in a flip top mirrored compact making it applicable on the go. And it is so easy to apply. A very soft, dewy cream blush, I blend this on with my fingers and it glides on so easily. I wouldn't use a brush with this just because it's more hassle than using your fingers!
This particular colour is a gorgeous peach with a pink undertone, making it seem a little coral. It's not chalky looking or too pale - instead it builds a warm, natural flush in the cheeks. It's pretty sheer - I had to swatch a couple of layers to get it as pigmented as it is in the swatch on the left.
This is incredibly long lasting for a cream blush too - on my skin (dry, but moisturized) it lasts maybe 7 hours. It stays dewy and glowy for a long time as well - although this may be a downside for those of you with oilier complexions. I find it makes my skin look more radiant and glowing rather than greasy.
I don't use this on my lips mainly because the shade doesn't really work for me lipwise, and also I found it slightly drying on the lips, which is odd because it wasn't drying at all on the cheeks.
Either way - I doubt I'll finish this any time soon but I love it so it's a repurchase for sure!
This is another win for Bobbi Brown in my book, who I've been pretty impressed with so far. However, I do have to say that they are a pretty expensive brand! £18 is a lot for a blush, although not as much as NARS.
Have you tried the Pot Rouges? Any particular colours you'd recommend? I have to say I'm lusting after most of them!
