Review: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Powder Pink 6



I'm not sure why I have not reviewed this yet, as it is probably my favourite lip product out of all the ones I own. It's definitely not new, but it is part of the Bobbi Brown permanent collection so you can still get it. It is a cheek/lip tint that is in my opinion, the perfect my lips but better shade. Now they sell it in different packaging, a compact with a mirror, but the formula is the same.






What It Is


"Our best-selling, multi-tasking cream color just got even better. It's now in a mirrored flip-top compact for on-the-spot application. Blend it on the apples of your cheeks for a just-pinched look. Blot it on your lips for a soft, stained finish.For drier skins, be sure to moisturize skin first." (Bobbi Brown Website)




How Much It Costs/Where To Get It

You can obviously buy this on the Bobbi Brown Website. Along with Sephora, Nordstrom, Macys, Neiman Marcus, ect. 

It costs $26 for .3 ounces. That makes it $86.70 per oz. 
I could not find any other popular lip/cheek products to compare it to other that the Stila Convertible Color that is the same price. However, a MAC tube of lipstick is .1 ounces, so this product is like 3 MAC lipsticks. 




Smell

No smell.

What It Looks Like/Feels/ and Staying Power

The picture of me is in front of a window with natural lighting. I think it is a very accurate depiction of the colour. It's a nice nude pink with slightly peachy undertones. The texture is similar to a thicker gloss, but it is very easy to spread with a lip brush. You could also use your finger, but I don't like doing that in case you get bacteria in there. 
This does not have the best staying power, but unless you are eating something oily or messy, it should last you about 6 hours. As it becomes dry, it turns into a stain. What I like about this is that even if some wipes off, you can't tell. 

Rating

4/5

Because of the staying power.
