REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pretty Powerful Pink

The Bobbi Brown pot rouge is one of those beauty products that is a complete breath of fresh air. Its dewy texture and feel, great colour range and handy mirrored compact make it the perfect product for updating your Spring beauty regime.

I first encountered the pot rouge when I decided to buy one for a friends birthday present and I secretly think that the only reason I bought it was because really, I wanted one all to myself! The secret is out- terrible I know!

The first shade that I decided to go for was the 'fresh melon' which is a natural peachy shade as I wanted a creme blush with a dewy finish that was going to highlight my cheekbones as well as adding a little colour to my lack lustre complexion. That's not to say that my skin always looks weary-I just tend to burn the candle at both ends as we all do! I would show a picture of my fresh melon pot rouge but I've used it so much that it's in a rather sorry state which I suppose is a sign of an essential beauty buy!

After loving my trusty Fresh Melon shade I was incredibly excited to test out the new pot rouge in Pretty Powerful Pink. This shade has been introduced as part of a new global charitable initiative by Bobbi Brown which aims to help women and girls raise funds to support programs that will provide them with additional education, job skills and work experience to further their career development and overall success.

As the name suggests, the colour is a powerful candy pink but when applied it is easy to blend and can be worn in a very subtle way. I have to be little more careful when applying this shade as its a much deeper pink but I love the instant flush of colour it gives to my cheeks! The great thing about the pot rouge is that it's multi purpose and very easy to blend so you can also use it as a lip balm or stain if your lips are lacking some spring summer attention, or you can use it to add a pop of colour to your cheeks! 

(excuse the quality of the photos-I was blogging whilst on the train!)
