I am a self-proclaimed beauty hoarder. I REGULARLY puchase makeup just for the sake of it however if you are a member of my family, I will deny this and say every purchase is essential.
During the lockdown period, I have noticed that I have been leaning towards more ‘classic’ beauty brands like Bobbi Brown Cosmetics as I prefer a more muted, natural look on the days I do decided to wear makeup.
Despite being around for over 20 years and stocking over 40 shades in their complexion products, Bobbi Brown doesn’t seem to be a brand that many people are not comfortable using. If you are feeling particularly adventurous and want to try one of the more classic beauty brands on the UK market – then get ready for quick breakdown on some of the best Bobbi Brown products I’ve used.
Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder
I don’t even wear highlighters than often but when I do chances are I’m wearing one of the Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powders. For a while Bobbi Brown decided to be super annoying and discontinue their highlighting powder range or only offer them as a limited edition product – who does that??! – Anyway they brought back 3 of their shades in the UK and they are stunning.
If you like to look like you’re not really trying or just want a subtle glow then I would recommend trying the Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Brown Glow – £36.50 via Bobbi Brown – as it is gives medium to dark skintones a gorgeous, light reflective highlight that looks like the sun kissed your skin rather than gave you an Academy Winning slap on your cheeks.
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara
I LOVE this mascara!
I wasn’t gifted with the longest lashes in the world and my lashes e tend to curl, so finding out about the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara – £25.00 via Bobbi Brown – was an unexpected gift to my lashes. This kohl-black mascara stretches out my lashes so that they look like they are standing up for attention AND it doesn’t flake. I wear contacts almost everyday so using flake-proof eye products is HIGH on my must have list.
Since discovering this mascara late last year, I’ve already gone through 6 tubes – which is A LOT for me – and plan to get 2 more on payday.
Bobbi Brown Luxe Liquid Lip Velvet Matte
When I first tried this out, I will admit that I wasn’t 100% sure about it – because let’s face it, I’m very hard to please when it comes to lipsticks as I own so many – but the Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colour has been my favourite lipstick formulation for almost 2 years.
It is so easy to layer lipgloss and lip pencils over this lipstick or wear it alone for a velvet effect
Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Face Brush
I stan for a good quality makeup brush. I actually own two Limited Edition 2017 versions of this brush as well as well as the standard Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Face Brush – £33.00 via Bobbi Brown – because they are just so multi-functional.
You can use them with powder or liquid makeup products and the bristles are sooooo silky. I prefer to use my makeup brushes to apply my blush and bronzer combo – aka powder producst – but honestly you can use this to apply your face powder, liquid foundation . . . it all depends on your routine.
