Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow Palette

I’m a big fan of the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge line so I was excited to see the new limited edition Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow palette hit stores recently. The palette contains a cream highlighter on top and a cream Pot Rouge blush below. The shades I have are Pink Opal/Homecoming Pink and Bare/Desert Rose, shown next to my Bobbi Brown Pot Rogue favourites Fresh Melon and Uber Beige.

Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow Palette review and Swatches


The Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow Palettes come in a beautiful white minimalist style packaging, made of hard, good quality plastic. It contains a large mirror and two pans of cream product. I can never fault Bobbi Brown packaging – it’s always up there with the best luxury brands.


Both the cream highlight illuminator and the cream blush are a subtle pigment with a dewy finish that blend beautifully. On my fair skin I really enjoy Pink Opal the most as it gives my skin a beautiful, extremely natural looking sheen instead of the usual high shimmer sort of highlight look.

Regarding the individual colours; Pink Opal highlight is a very sheer soft pink while Bare is more of a sheer bronze highlight (more pigmented than Opal is though). The Pink Homecoming blush is a gorgeous deep fuschia pink that would be great on pretty much every skin tone while Desert Rose is a dark pink toned nude that would work best on fair-medium skin.

Overall, I’m in complete adoration of these. I can’t fault them in any regards as they are exactly what I usually look for in cheek products – dewy with a natural looking finish. If you prefer a more high-beam shimmery highlight then this might not be the right product for you, but if you enjoy more natural, subtle looking makeup then you will love them. You can purchase Bobbi Brown via the Bobbi Brown website, David Jones, Nordstrom & Selfridges.

      The tones are gorgeous. Desert Rose would be amazing in autumn.

    I’m so interested in Bobbi Brown colour cosmetics as I’ve only tried their skincare and under eye corrector which I swear by. Love the look of the Bare/Desert Rose duo!

      I haven’t tried their undereye corrector but it’s on my list because I’ve been getting dark circles under there recently.

    I am the worst person with blush! I usually put too much on! :/
    But these are beautiful and I love the packaging 🙂
