bobbi brown pot rouge: revamped

if you have been following my blog you already know that i am a big fan of bobbi brown's pot rouges. so far they are my favorite cream blushes. the consistency and longevity of the product is excellent and it comes in 9 different shades. since i recently picked up a discontinued shade, pink raspberry, off AND because my fellow blogger Delyteful Speaks was curious about them, i decided to do a revamped updated post on the ones i own.

powder pink
this is a very natural shade. it gives me a very natural pinky flush to the face. i would describe it as a fleshy petal pink. if you like super natural colors, this is the one to pick. it is very effortless to wear.

calypso coral
this is a pink based salmon coral color. on me it gives a nice peachy pink glow. i think of summer with this shade. if you prefer peachier corals rather than pink, i would go to cabo coral instead, that leans more peach/orange.

blushed rose
this is my favorite shade out the ones i have. it is a very blah color in the pan, but it really flatters my skin tone. i would describe it as a browned muted pink. browned pinks usually look the best on me because it adds color while making me look tan. i usually reach for this shade for special occasions or nights out when i want to layer cream and powder blushes for staying power.

pink raspberry
this color reminds me of exactly what the name raspberry. it is a nice dewy pink. i havent had the chance to wear this yet...but it swatches beautifully...

i still really recommend these to try out if you havent tried any. they retail for 24USD. they can also be used on the lips, which i havent explored because i dont like wearing lipstick all that often on my lips. i have heard it is drying on the lips so tread carefully. on the cheek they wear beautifully; they blend easily, arent greasy, and last pretty long. the next few colors i want to try are velvet plum, chocolate cherry, and milk chocolate.

have you tried bobbi browns pot rouges? any favorites or colors you want to try out?
