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.
