Bobbi brown isn't a brand which is all that accessible to me - the nearest counter is about 45 minutes away on the train and not somewhere i visit all that often, so on my recent trip to London i made sure to visit a counter and pick up something i'd been wanting for a while, one of their Pot Rouges.

I ended up choosing the shade calypso coral as the shade i originally wanted, hibiscus, was sold out. Calypso coral is definitely true to its name, being a bright coral pink colour. It applies like a dream, bright but not too heavy meaning you can apply one thin coat for a pop of colour without it being too in your face, or apply two like i have above for a more full on blush look. It leaves the skin with a lovely natural looking glow, blending in seamlessly to any makeup underneath. I'm majorly impressed so far, especially considering it lasted about 9 hours on me before fading which is really impressive for a cream blush. It works nicely on the lips too, although i would say you do have to make sure to exfoliate your lips first as it will cling to any really dry patches you have (I'm wearing it on the lips too under a tanya burr gloss - review in the works)

Have you ever tried a pot rouge, what are your favourite shades?
