A few weeks ago I was getting ready to do some cleaning, and as I do every time I get ready to do housework, I got distracted by some beauty product on my night stand. This usually means I put on way too much makeup and just play around… that’s my SSB. The last time I did this, I grabbed Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge and suddenly, it was like I was reunited with a long lost love.
Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks is a beauty multi-tasker that everyone should have a least one of in their makeup bag. I’ve been switching it up with Chocolate Cherry and Blushed Rose on my lips and cheeks lately. Chocolate Cherry seems a little intense for everyday wear but don’t let it scare you. Everyone can wear this shade, it all depends on how you apply it. With a light hand, this goes on beautifully. Cheeks have a light rosy flush to them and lips have that just bitten look to them with a hint of a brown. I’ve picked up a few more shades since we’ve been reunited and the beauty addict in me is debating collecting them all.
My other current love is Stila’s Convertible Color. Just like Bobbi’s Pot Rouge, this is another great beauty multi-tasker. I like to use this one on my cheeks more than my lips because the formula with this one is sheerer in comparison to the Pot Rouge. It also has a semi-matte finish where the Pot Rouge has some shine to it. This gives my cheeks that nice dewy look I’m in love with. Also, Stila’s shade range is a little different from Bobbi Brown’s so you’re not duplicating a shade you already have. Stila has some peachy shades that Bobbi Brown lacks like Gladiola and Gerbera. Plus you can’t go wrong with the mirror in the compact. Maybe one day Pot Rouges will come with a little mirror in the cap.
I would be in heaven if Bobbi Brown or Stila made one of these with a hint of shimmer… maybe they are listening. Do you own one of these? Which ones? I want to hear all about it in the comments.
