Bronzers -Bobbi Brown -Bronzing Powder - Natural

on 11/20/2017 12:39:00 PM

This was my first high end bronzer which I've had and used daily for almost three years now. I swear this bronzer is never ending, it took me a solid year and a half of swirling a big fluffy brush to hit pan. Even today, I only see a nickel sized pan, and still have so much product left.

I was introduced to this by a Sephora SA when she was matching me to a foundation and she dusted some bronzer (so I didn't look one dimensional), she said the slight red tone will play well with my yellow NC 25 (winter) -35 (summer) colouring. This is a very aptly named bronzer, Natural sets enough definition on my face simultaneously warming it up. I often even use this in my crease and lower lash line with mascara for a everyday work look. I find the wear time to be decent, after 8 hours it starts to fade evenly.

One star off packaging that didn't last as long as the product itself, after 2 years, the lid just snapped off and the button that keeps the lid closed got jammed. So this a stay-at-home bronzer now.

PROS:
Defining yet warm colour that works well on light medium warm skin
Lasts forever

CONS:
Crap packaging

Mine is from Sephora for $54 CAD.



Concealers -Bobbi Brown -Corrector

I have very fair ‘translucent’ skin, so the area around my eyes can appear very dark and blue-ish, with the addition of many visible veins. I prefer to cover this and Bobbi Brown’s corrector is the perfect product to do so. It takes minimal product to completely erase, cover and correct the discolouration under my eyes. The texture and appearance on the skin is so natural, I’d go as far to say it’s traceless. There is no need for concealer after using this, it does the job without. The packaging is sturdy and secure. Small and convenient to take with you for on-the-go use. Only reason I have marked down the price is because it tends to get used up fairly quickly. A typical pot with last me 2 months max - which is quick for me. I truly cannot recommend this product enough, it’s all I’ll reach for now. I LOVE it!

Liquid -Bobbi Brown -Moisture Rich Foundation SPF15

on 11/17/2017 9:12:00 AM

This foundation is an epic fail. Very runny so it is difficult to apply with sponge or brush. My fingers is the only way... It does not sit well on my skin especially on the chin area. It does not looks nice even with the use of setting powder and urban decay setting spray. Poor result with an expensive product.


Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown -Long Wear Eye Pencil - black navy

I have this in 'Jet' and I love it. This review is only for this particular color 'Black Navy'. I like this color 'Black Navy'. However, this one does not apply as smooth as 'Jet' and the pigmentation is not opaque sometimes. It is a lovely color, though. But I have to go over the eyes twice to get a good pigmented line. This one does not smudge on me like the other reviewers suggest. But, I want a smudged liner look sometimes. This does not work well for that as well. When I try to smudge this liner the product wears off completely sometimes. Try this long-wear pencil in 'Jet' or 'Mahagony' though. They are very good.

Pros
- good color (a dark navy)
- does not smudge or crease on me

Cons:
- not pigmented
- the product wears off unevenly (in comparison with 'Jet', it is not very long wearing)


Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown -Long Wear Cream Eye Shadow in Stone

on 11/15/2017 10:33:00 PM

After much deliberation and too much time browsing swatches, I purchased 'Stone', sight unseen.

Cons:
I'm NC 41 or Bobbi Brown 'Natural Tan'. I was torn between Malted, Shore and Cement. However, I saw a swatch that where 'Stone' appeared pinky beige. I chose Stone as I thought it to be darker than 'Cement'. I did not want to risk the concealer eye-lids by choosing 'shore' or 'malted' and I thought stone was dark enough to be my lids but better color. But this color disappears in my lids and the pigmentation is very sheer. So, if you are NC35 or darker or if you have pigmented lids, do not try to shade looking for a brightening effect or to even out pigmentation on lids or for a light base (like the way people use painterly, soft ochre). I bought this shade for such use but I cannot get it to work like that. My only issue with this product is the choice of color for my skin tone.

Pros:
- I love the texture of the product. It feels like you are wearing nothing on your lids - no tacky, tight/rigid lids feeling that you get when some cream shadows dry down.
- No creasing even when layered with powder shadows.
- Even though it does not stand out against my lid or brighten my lid (as this color is close to the pigmentation on my skin), it gives a slight wash of color and my lid-texture appears slightly velvety. I am a light make up wearer who prefers subtle colors and for someone with my kind of preferences and a lighter skin tone (say NC 25- NC30), this product may work well to provide a good wash of color.
- It is a good base for lighter powder shadows. Some lighter shadows turn ashy on my lids (LM guava and primrose from the LM Artist palette. I've never worn them alone on lids). I layered these shadows on top of stone and they looked beautiful and true to pan pigmentation.

I don't find the packaging a big turn-off although for many reviewers it seems to be. So, you may want to consider that if it is important for you. I'm not a brush person and I prefer to use fingers for cream shadows to even them out. The opening is not as wide as paint pots but you can work around it. If you find a color that works for you, this product could be wonderful.
