I’ve been so jetlagged since i got back, it’s not funny at all. This waking up in the middle of the night business has got to stop. When i’m looking droll and lifeless, a pop of color on the cheeks sure helps. I actually got to try some of Bobbi Brown’s cult favorite pot rouge cream blush thanks to Lily some time back, and loved them. So it is no surprise that im finding this season’s new Cheek Glow Palettes equally amazing!
Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow Palettes come in a slim iridescent white compact that houses a Pot Rouge for lips & cheeks alongside a new pearlized Cream Glow Highlighter. There is a generous-sized mirror on the inside if the lid too, and each shade is a good 4.4gm. I have been living off these for the past month, and even brought them along with me on my recent long trip. They’re so easy to use – simply swipe on with fingers, and dab to blend. The Pot Rouge has good level of pigmentation so it shows up easily but also blends out well without leaving harsh lines. It is particularly forgiving on dry winter skin, and stays on well all day. The Cream Glow Highlighter brings a lustrous sheen to the skin without any dreaded oily sheen.
There is some shimmer in each of the Cream Glow Highlighters, whilst the Pot Rouge is mostly matte. Regardless, the shimmers are not overly obvious, and they generally blend out easily for a soft, natural glow. The palette shown above features the Cream Glow Highlighter in Bare which looks intense in the pan but applies as a soft golden sheen on the skin. At the bottom of the palette is Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks in the shade Desert Rose which is a beautiful medium muted rosewood with a neutral- to warm-tone.
One of my favorites has got to be this palette which contains the Cream Glow Highlighter in Pink Opal, which is a soft barely-there pink tint; along with Pot Rouge in Homecoming Pink. I’m generally not big on pink blushes, but these give a very naturally sweet flush from within look that I love.
Who am I kidding, I really love all 3 of them! I know coral pinks are always a crowd favorite, and this one doesnt disappoint! The Cream Glow Highlighter in Pearl is translucent on the skin, leaving just a hint of translucency. Pot Rouge in Pink Flush is a warm-toned salmon pink, very pretty indeed!
Here are swatches if all 3 palettes, do any of them catch your eye? All 3 Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow Palettes are limited edition, and already out in stores!
