Here we are, the 4th instalment of my pot rouge posts. I have for you today, Powder Pink. It is a warm nude pink that flatters most skin tones. In fact, this is my first ever purchase of Bobbi Brown’s pot rouge, highly recommended by the beauty consultant at Bobbi Brown. I bought this about 3 years back and with good care, it still works great, with no changes in smell or texture in application. I will not throw this away just because industrial standard of expiration of cream blushes is 3 years. Bleh! I’m the only one who uses this, and I’m as hygienic as I can get 😉
As you can see, it did not dry out at all! I’ve had other cream products like MAC’s paint pots which dried out on me in 1 year. This however, lasts a looooong time. I love it!
Like all other Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks, this comes in a round glass container with black plastic screw on cap. I usually apply cream blushes after my foundation, before setting with powder. I sometimes apply with an angled blush brush, but I also like to apply with fingers. All you have to do is dot it on the apple of your cheeks, and blend gently. If soft blending is not your forte, then I suggest not to blend using swiping motion. Just pat it on using your middle and ring finger. If you use a brush, just stipple it on. That way, your foundation is intact and the blush goes on seamless.
Below is the swatch, heavy on the left, blended on the right. It looks brownish, doesn’t it? It’s weird though because it looks different on the cheeks. I love to use this for a “no makeup” makeup look. The colour blends in so well with my skin colour that it truly represents the colour of my cheeks when I am naturally flushed. Also, I like to use this colour on lips – still natural, just a little more pigmented version of my naked lips.
This is Powder Pink on my cheeks and lips. And because I’m wearing Powder Pink, the makeup I did here is more natural, barely there.
The other products I used are:
Primer: Shu Uemura UV Underbase Mousse in beige
Foundation: Bareminerals Foundation Fairly Light
Concealer: MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer NC20 on spots, Dior Skinflash to brighten dullness
Undereye concealer: Diorskin Nude skin perfecting hydrating concealer
Eyes: UD Primer potion Eden, UD Naked on crease, UD Darkhorse to tightline eyes
Mascara: Dior Extase
Brow: Empro brow pencil Blonde
And below is white balance gone wrong… LOL!
Hope you like this one! There is only 1 more from my Bobbi Brown pot rouge run and that’s Summer Tan. Yup, it’s BROWN! Aaaahhhh!!! Stay tuned to see what I use it for =)
