Stand Out Sunday! Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Calypso Coral

All of you know how much i love my corals and this week, i saw a tiny bit of sunshine here in the UK, so i decided to whip out my Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Calypso Coral.

This is a very bright, vivid coral and compliments tanned skin beautifully. Whenever i have used this on clients, their face is just full of horror. However, once applied, it looks fresh, youthful and gives skin a healthy natural glow.

This is a firm favourite of mine and always reminds me of the time i went backpacking, as i took very little makeup with me. I love using this, as it's such a summery colour and really accentuates the natural skin tone.

The pictures above are of the old packaging as now it is a flip top lid with a mirror.

The consistency of this product is like butter! It is so easy to apply but the one thing i will warn you about is that it's easy to pick up too much product on your fingers. You only need the smallest amount.

The finish on the skin almost feels like satin, as it's not fully matte but isn't dewy either....kind of an in between.

I love layering this with Bobbi Brown blush in Apricot. I have very oily skin and when it comes to the summer my blush is GONE. By layering a cream blush with a powder blush over the top, it makes it last much longer on my skin.

This also doubles up as a lip product but it doesn't last the longest on the lips and unfortunately for me, feels very drying on the lips. If you are going to use this on your lips, i would suggest you use a lip balm prior to applying it.

Top: Heavily swatched. Bottom: Blended

How to apply:
  • Warm the product up between your fingers. The heat makes it much more easier to apply.
  • Now, SMILE! Place two dots, one on the apple of your cheek and the other just slightly towards your cheekbone.
  • Gently blend outwards with your fingers starting with the dot on the apple of your cheeks.
  • Carry on blending until it looks like a natural flush of colour.

This is me wearing Calypso Coral whilst i was in Brazil, so i have more of a tan here!

  1. I'm not usually a fan of coral but this does look a lovely colour!

  2. Will definitely be looking for this shade in the very near future. It's beautiful! I'd wear this shade without any hesitation. Is this color still available?
