Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge New And Revamped. Raspberry Is My Choice.

I love my Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge. I have most of the old ones. Yes, Bobbi Brown revamped their pot rouge and relaunched it not too long ago. There is a whole new range of colours, and I just couldn’t resist Raspberry. I don’t really fancy raspberries much, but on my cheeks and lips, this Raspberry sure is yummy.

Raspberry is described as aΒ deep raspberry pinkΒ and on me, I’d simply say it is a warm reddish pink. I fell in love with it at first sight. As you can see, I already dipped into it before photographing. I’ve been very gentle so the pan still looks relatively clean πŸ˜‰ Compared to the older version, I find this to have more slip and less drying on the lips. Erm, still drying, but less drying than the older version. Applying lip balm prior to this will help a lot. On the cheeks, Bobbi Brown pot rouge is easily blended and once it dries, it sets and lasts at least 8 hours on me.

The newer version has cooler packaging. It is now a flip-top compact, with mirror to boot. It is slimmer, sleeker, and the mirror makes it all the more convenient. While the product is just as good, and the exterior is more attractive, the price is still the same at RM90. All other Bobbi Brown products have increased in price, so I was sure there must be a catch in this… and I was right. The slimmer compact also means less product. Instead of pulling up the price, Bobbi Brown gives you better packaging, less product. Comparing the net weight of both new and old versions, the latter has about 3 times more product. To illustrate, I took a few photos comparing Raspberry to Calypso Coral side by side.

Now, I am not complaining saying I was ripped off. I knew somehow I was getting less product in place of a mirror and a flip-top compact, and it also means that I might be able to use it up one day. I just wanted to point out my observations to you. I still love their pot rouge and I still think their cream blushes are superb. For this product, I am willing to fork out RM90 a pop. I’m telling you that. Oh, for reference, here are the swatches and ingredient list.

    Should not have clicked on this post >_< *Runs away*

    • Hahahaha! You know you want it… πŸ˜›

  • Liyeun

    Wow at first glance, i might not even look at raspberry. But now, i sure hv to check this out. I used to hv pale pink and i like it. Not love it though. Not too sure bout the formula on my skin. But im gonna check this one out! At rm90, im not complaining if u r an enabler! lol…Thanks!

    • Haha! You have to try this on both your cheeks and lips. It’s such a beautiful shade when it’s worn. Let me know how it goes πŸ™‚

  • You reminded me of how much I wanted to try these! Bobbi Brown is one of my all-time favorite makeup brands and I’ve had my eye on these blushes for as long as I can remember! Newer collections/items always seem to distract me, though, which is why I haven’t purchased any…yet. Calypso Coral is gorgeous though–I think I will definitely be needing that one!

    How would you describe the feel of this, Lily? Is it dry in that almost powdery, silicone-y kind of way? Kind of like a cream-to-powder? I generally dislike that kind of texture but I suppose I have been swayed before…

    • Oh, sorry I didn’t write about that. The texture is creamy, but hard. Like frozen butter. Hard, but slippery. When applied, it is creamy enough for easy blending, and then it sets. It doesn’t dry powdery, rather it sets into the skin, like foundation… if that makes any sense to you. Doesn’t feel like ‘cones to me.

  • Ooh, I love how compact the new packaging is! So much thinner and nicer! I’ll have to give them a look! πŸ˜€

    • Do try! Can’t wait to read what you think πŸ™‚

  • The new packaging is definitely better, and Raspberry is a color I probably wouldn’t have purchased but the swatch looks really pretty.

    • Looks like nobody minds getting less product in the new packaging so far πŸ™‚ It is very pretty, Angela. You should try it. I would say it is quite universal, flattering across all skin tones!

  • Rasberry is gorgeous! It looks so rich. I’m sure they considered the size in the update, these things take forever to use up.

    • This is gorgeous instead. I think it’ll look great on you!

    I like the new packaging. I don’t yet own any BB, but Calypso Coral is right up my alley. I’d consider it if I didn’t have other peachy-coral blushes (all powder though) and, of course, we’re on a MU ban. tee hee!

    • Oh, Calypso Coral is absolutely beautiful. It brightens my complexion immediately. Even if you’re on a makeup ban, you can always try it at the counter!

      • BooBooNinja

        Lily… I’ve swatched this numerous times since. I am officially in love.

        • YAY!!! It’s BEAUTIFUL, isn’t it? Looks precious on the skin – like you’ve been out running in the cold.

    • Hi Selina, I haven’t seen pink raspberry myself so I’m afraid I can’t help you there…
