Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Calypso Coral - Review

This was a bit of an impulse buy when I was at the Bobbi Brown counter. I had heard of the Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks before and thought about buying one but was unsure. I have never had much luck with cream products for the cheeks, I usually end up looking like a clown (which is not a good look).

I instantly fell for the shade 2 Calypso Coral. It is a gorgeous bright coral that looks a little scary in the pan, but when blended it is so beautiful on the skin.

It applies beautifully on to the cheeks. It can be applied sheerly or strongly. I personally prefer a sheer application, it looks much more natural. Just like a natural flush. It lasts all day on the cheeks - no fading or touch up required. I find it has a slightly dewy finish but not oily or over the top.

The Pot Rouges can also be used on the lips. I tend to only use it as a blush. I find it a little drying on the lips and I don't like the texture of it on my lips. It does look really beautiful on the lips though.

They are packaged in a black round compact.  Bobbi Brown is printed on the front in white. Inside has a nice sized mirror.

I like to apply the Pot Rouge using either a foundation brush or a stippling brush. Fingers can be used but I find it gives me a heavier application.

I love that this products is multi purpose. It can be both a blush and a lip colour. Making it a great product for the handbag or when travelling. I highly recommened these and am already planning on which colour I will purchase next. I am thinking a pink one...

The Pot Rouge retails for AU$46.00 each for 3.7g of product from Bobbi Brown counters or the Bobbi Brown website.

Do you own any Pot Rouges? What do you think? Any Bobbi Brown product suggestions?


  1. Ohhhhh pretty!! I know what you mean about bright colours on your cheeks. I have a natural pink flush to my cheeks so bright colours scare me.

    1. Me too. I always have pinkish looking cheeks - too much product on top, makes me look ridiculous. :)

  2. OMG that looks so pretty!
