I didn't think Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks, £18, www.bobbibrown.co.uk could get any better but it just did! This iconic multi-use cream blush, which can also be used on the lips, for a pigment rich yet balmy stain, has had a facelift, so to speak with new handbag friendly packaging. The Pot rouges now come in a sleek compact with a mirror - perfect for touch ups. One of Bobbi's favourite tricks is to add a fresh pop of blush to the apples of the cheeks at 4pm, when you not only feel like you're flagging, but your make up might be too. I'm loving the Chocolate Cherry and Raspberry shades, which looks great and very natural on darker skin tones. Calypso Coral looks amazing on sunny Cameron Diaz-esque blondes, English roses should grab the Power Pink shade while Pale Pink and Uber Beige looks beautiful on most skin tones. Kate Middleton is rumoured to be a Pale Pink blush fan. Now the sun is shining, cream blushes will add a touch of Spring/ Summer to your make up look. Enjoy!
