Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge - Powder Pink

I was delighted when around Christmas time I was offered the opportunity to try some Bobbi Brown products. Since discovering the beauty community, Bobbi Brown became a brand I was keen to try due to the numerous recommendations I'd heard, not only from beauty enthusiasts but also professional makeup artists. However, being a student at the time meant it was out of my reach financially.

As I was new to the Bobbi Brown brand I spent a lot of time reading reviews on Makeup Alley and asking around for recommendations. In the end I selected Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge, a product for both cheeks and lips that seemed to be very popular. The colour Powder Pink appealed to me most, a light pretty pink that looked like the perfect colour for the cheeks.

I found this was best applied with my Mac 187 brush, starting on the apple of the cheek and stippling out towards the hairline. Using this brush for application not only made it a breeze to blend but also created a flawless, professional finish. I did attempt using my fingers but I found the product a little too sticky to blend evenly.
Here it is in use...

The colour is lovely and gives a natural flush to the cheeks that lasts all day. I did also try it on my lips but I found the colour a little too dark compared to my preferred tones, although I can imagine it's a great product to have around when you don't want to lug around more than you need to. Overall I've been very impressed and now use this in my daily makeup routine.

Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouges are priced at £16.50 and available here or in your nearest store.
