I like this pallete - it is easy to use and the colors are versatile - can be worn a day or night (depending on the occasion). The colors are subtle, soft and natural looking. I find that the medium brown is quite light though and needs to be applied a few times. The pinky colour is a nice base. I like the dark brown too. I find it easy to apply - but I would use another eyeliner on first to get right to the rims because the brush wont allow you to do this. I wouldn't recommend using the dark brown as an eyeliner by itself - more to accentuate another eyeliner you already have on. The packaging is quite cute - so far I have worn this alot and gotten alot of compliments about it. I have brown eyes and medium/tanned skin so I find that the pallete works well with my complexion and coloring. I would buy this again.
I really like this product! I have more of an olive/tanned complexion and this does show up on my skin. It gives a pretty, pink glow. I like to use Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge in Powder Pink first and then apply this one over the top. It is ok to use by itself - but the colour will look less intense, it depends on the look that you are going for. It also doesn't last for that long by itself. I think that it has a pleasant smell too (maybe a little old fashioned), kind of like roses or flowers. Overall, 4 lippies, because I wear it quite alot and it looks really natural. You can wear it by itself or over top of another blush - so it's versatile. It's quite expensive for what it is ... however, you get alot in a packet. I don't have any problems with the packaging so far
This perfume does smell like Narcissco Rodriguez for her ... and I have always got heaps of compliments when I have worn it - especially from boys. It has a nice clean, elegant kind of smell. I used to wear it quite often, but over time, I've just got a bit bored with it. It still has a nice pleasant smell, but I have other perfumes that I prefer. I have to spray this perfume lots of times for the smell to last, or to be evident to other people. I gave it an overall rating of four. I don't know if I will buy it again when I run out either ... I might go for the actual NR fragrance instead.
I love this perfume .... I only gave it a rating of four though because the scent fades really quickly - to me this is the only downfall to it. I think that this is a nice fragrance for any time ... day or night. It has a cute bottle. To me, it has a soft, pretty, elegant scent - and is not too harsh smelling. I nearly gave it a 5 ... because I really do love it. But, it just doesn't last.
I really love this fragrance - it's perfect for summer. It has a cool, light, breezy smell and is not too strong. It's really nice for a hot summers day at the beach!
I got this blush on a sale. It says on the pack that it's a Mocha Rose color - which I would agree with. I nude/beige pink. It can come on the skin quite dark, so use a small amount. It is matte .... I hardly ever wear this blush and the only place I would probably wear it is to work, during the day. There is nothing really outstanding about this blush so I wouldn't buy it again.
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Espresso Ink Long Wear Gel Eyeliner
BeccaS11 11/2/2008 12:11:00 AM
This is shade of very dark, cook brown. I have brown eyes, but I find this product too dark to wear during the day. I only apply it to my top lashline or else it would make my eyes look too small. I prefer the Clinique Black Honey cream eyeliner ... it just seems to suit me better as my eyes are a warm brown. When my hair was a darker shade I used to wear this more, but since I've lightened it I prefer a lighter shade of brown because this shade would look too harsh on me. I gave it a rating of four though because it's nice to wear at night, it lasts forever ... and it's relatively easy to apply. On the other hand ... it's quite expensive for what it is and I just prefer using my Clinique cream eyeliner and I wouldn't buy it again when I run out
To me this blush is more of a warm peach/nude color. I only gave this blush a rating of 3 - because it doesn't seem to suit me. It looks like a light colored blush in the container, but it comes on really dark on my skin and look unnatural and makes it look obvious that I am wearing blush it makes my skin look streaky. It is also too warm for me, it's just doesn't really suit me. It is overpriced for what it is (luckily I got it on sale!) - it doesn't have any staying power ... and if I wear it too work it will be gone by lunchtime. It might look better if I had a bit of tan. I would not buy this again.
Springsheen is exactly like it's name - a nice sheen for spring or summer, it will defiantely brighten up your complexion and give it a nice warm glow. It's a kind of peachy/coral with a hint of pink too. The color is warm in tone and is hard to describe - you'd have to try it on in person to see what it looked like on your particular skin tone. I gave it an overall rating of 5 - because I can't really say anything bad about it - it's well priced, packaged nicely and an overall great product.
Ladyblush is a natural peachy/pink flesh toned color. I tried the Lillicent blush on in the shop but I decided to go with this color, because it is a little bit darker. It looks nice and natural, people would hardly even know that you were wearing blush - and it blends really well into the skin - just use a small amout or else it will look too dark. It does have a sticky kind of texture to it though. I find that this blush has pretty good staying power - and is well priced. Overall, I gave it a rating of four - just because despite it's natural appearrance I don't seem to wear it that often - only if I wear certain outfits or colors ... and it's a bit annoying to apply as it's quite sticky.
I got this in shade 3 - which is a little too dark for my skin to begin with. Having said that, it makes my skin break out ... makes my skin look oily rather than glowing, and hardly lasts at all. I would not buy this again. The untinted version might be nicer - the color is just way off for me - way to warm for my colouring.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks - Calypso Coral
BeccaS11 11/1/2008 11:26:00 PM
I just got this blush in the weekend! It's a really nice, fresh colour that makes me look awake. Really nice for summer. It doesn't look as bright on my skin as in the pot - the color is a really nice, warm coral - not just peach. For me it blends quite easily, but doesn't seem to last for longer than a few hours. I would repurchase it again - even if only to wear in summer - would look nice if you were tanned and wearing a white outfit imo. The finished look is really natural, and I think that the color is quite unique and different to lots of other peachy colours that I have. I gave it five lippies - because the color is just so pretty and the overall quality of the pot rouge's is higher than alot of other cream blushes. I wouldn't use this on my lips.
Desert Rose, is a nice neutral, beige/pink. Or dusty pink as someone else described it as. I find this to be a really nice blush to wear during the day - especially to work. It has a nice,natural finish to it. It lasts for quite a long time too. To me, this is quite a plain blush and there is no 'wow' factor. but it is good quality and is natural enough to wear everyday. * I originally gave this a rating of four, but then I changed my mind because this is one of my most used blushes ... if not my most used.
This is one of Bobbi Browns shimmer blushes, I got this blush for summer because I wanted something with a little bit of shimmer to it. This blush looked really nice under the shop lights, but when I got outside ... I kind of changed my mind. I think that color might be a little bit dark for me or something, kind of making my skin look dirty, it does have a nice sheen to it though. I think that the washed rose shade would probably suit tanned skin tones, it seems to be really pigmented so use a light hand or else it will look really dark. This blush doesn't last that long on my skin, and comes off quite easliy. I don't think that I would purchase this particular shade again, but I have found most BB blushes to be quite really good quality.
This blush is really good for it's price. It's a pretty, plain pink color ... with a little bit of shimmer. This blush lasts for ages on me, so is great for wearing to work. On me, it looks quite sheer, which is one of the things that I like about it. I quite like blushes with a little bit of shimmer - like MAC'S sheertone's and Bobbi Brown's shimmer blush - and this rimmel blush is just as good either of those.
