Last weekend my Bobbi Brown “source” slipped me a piece of paper with a list of BB products slated for discontinuation. (He knows about you, readers, and he loves the idea that he’s leaking information directly to BB fans. We’ll call him Mr. X.)
The list was surprisingly long, and included gel eyeliners in Cobalt, Hunter, Bronze Shimmer, Sapphire Shimmer, Indigo, and Mahogany (say what?) and Pot Rouges in Summer Tan, Calypso Coral, Blushed Rose, Stonewashed Pink, Pink Raspberry, and Raspberry (say what?!).
Mr. X theorized that the Pot Rouges were going to be replaced by the new Sheer Color Cheek Tints, so I thought I’d better get them swatched, stat.
The Pot Rouges are a lip-and-cheek product, and compared to the Cheek Tints, they’re more pigmented (they have a white base, so they show color more strongly). Mr. X also feels that they sink into pores more. By comparison, the Cheek Tints (at least nominally) are for cheek only. They’re more sheer, and according to Mr. X, they are more blendable and don’t sink into pores.
Naturally, I swatched these heavily to give you the clearest picture of the colors; you would wear them far more sheerly. Pot Rouges are $22.
