Not My Cup of Tea: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge
COLOR: Beautiful! I was expecting a more pigmented, bright pink by the way it's been described by others but I would definitely say it's a very natural pink that looks like a convincing flushed color. No quams with this aspect!
APPLICATION: It applies easily and smoothly on the cheeks using both fingers and a brush. It takes almost no effort to blend it in seamlessly without leaving any harsh lines or streakyness on the cheeks. No issues with application at all.
LONGEVITY: This cream blush disappears completely from my cheeks within 2 hours. I've tried different techniques to increase the wear time but nothing seems to work. I've tried powdering over the blush, using a makeup setting spray and adding multiple, thin layers. By the end of the day, I look drained and completely naked of blush. I don't have particularly oily cheeks, so I doubt that my oil production has much to do with it. I haven't heard others complain about getting it to stay on the cheeks, but I'm running out of ideas and becoming increasingly disappointed with the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge.
Overall Grade: F
So there's my breakdown of a beautiful product that just doesn't perform... at all. I really should have stuck with old faithful and bought another Stila Convertible Color, but such is life. I will likely pass this along to someone else who will hopefully get some use of of it, but I am done trying to make this product work for me.
Have you tried the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouges?
Thanks for reading.
