Product Review: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in 2 Calypso Coral

For the Nth time, I love coral-pinks and here is another coral-pink product I have been using and loving lately - Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Calypso Coral.

What I like:
- The shade, of course, is a lovely coral-pink shade. I  coral-pink. Nuff said.
- Pretty on the cheeks and on the lips too.
- It may feel a bit balmy but it's not so hard to blend at all. I feel that the tapping motion works best instead of rubbing it on your cheeks.
- Stays for like 5-6 hours on my combi-oily skin which isn't bad at all.
- Works as a really nice base for powder blushes but is also nice when used on its own.
- Pigmented and a little goes a long way. You only need very little amount as you can easily overdo it since it is pigmented.
- May seem expensive at first but considering the amount of product you get and the pigmentation it has, it is fairly priced in the long run.
- Has not caused me to break out yet.
- Locally available at Bobbi Brown counters in Rustan's.

What I don't like:
- Drying on the lips so if you plan to use this on your lips, do not forget to apply lotsa lip balm underneath.

Overall rating: 4.5/5

Will I buy again? Maybe, but I'm sure it will take me a long time to finish this up.


On the lips topped with a clear gloss

On my cheeks (NC30-35 now because of swimming)

Have you tried these Pot Rouges? What's your fave?

Happy Tuesday, super awesome peeps! :)


  1. this shade is a winner! as a blush, i can overlook the pot packaging, but not as a lip color! i hate using my fingers to apply lip color. haha arte :P

  2. G, I forgot about the packaging. I guess it's because it doesn't really bother me at all. Haha! Yeah, love the shade. :)

  3. That's so cool that you could use this for your lips and cheeks! It looks great on you. I love the color.


  4. Dinah, do give it a try. I have a feeling it'll look good on you. :)

  5. as a lip color pure love talaga! and nice din for the cheeks!

  6. Crystal, correct. Love talaga on the lips, too bad it's drying.

  7. parang namiss ko bigla si calypso coral. haha!

  8. Michelle, go get one! :P

    Jap, seller's remorse? Haha!

  9. pammy how much is this? it's so pretty!!! so tempting! must close my eyes and forget LOL! :p i'll just think of it as super drying so i don't go near the bb counters. :p

  10. Sugar, not more than 1.5k, I think. Go get one na! :P

  11. ah! super pretty! wala pa kong bobby brown eh :c kasi kuripot ako LOL! i'd like to check this one out tho kasi i like peachy pink shades tooo!

  12. Donna, try it! Think of it as in investment. Or better yet, a reward for all your hard work. :)

  13. Nice color! Usually di siya lumalabas but with this particular one it came out really well!

  14. I have this shade too! It's such a great for the summer. Awesome choice. I think we have similar taste in makeup : ) I've had mine for about 6 months now and it still looks pretty new!

  15. Pbi: I love BB pot rouges! I have the Cabo Coral one since Calypso was already discontinued, me thinks. Anyways, what other coral-pinks do you like? I'm on the hunt for lipsticks in this shade and I'm eyeing Bobbi Brown's Soft Coral lip color. Have you seen her lipsticks? BB has soooo much coral collection. I want them all!!:)
