Always a great base on light complexions. Also gives my cream and powder eyeshadows staying powder.
I have used most gel/cream eyeliners on the market and I absolutely love this one. There is a fun blue glitter design set into the black pigment. I don't use it everyday but might start- it got burried in my make up bag. It comes with an eyeliner brush- which is nice, and the bristles on the brush are pretty good quality. It doesn't smear or transfer- it makes my eyes really pop! It's expensive, but a great product!
Okay so this is the most expensive makeup product I own, but IT DOES WHAT IT SAYS! At first I bought this as an under eye concealer and it didn't work out well, however, i started using it on red spots on my skin, and HOLY MOLY- does it work. It is the holy grail- believe the hype- it's that good, but it doesn't cost a ridiculous amount. To apply I usually rub it onto the back of my hand and use a concealer brush to apply.
Loose Powders -Bobbi Brown - Sheer Finish Loose Powder

It does what is says- sheer finish loose powder. It sets my tinted balm and concealer to a nice finish- doesn't make me look chalky or washed out. I bought a more pinky color to help give my skin some glow. I have the pressed powder, and liked the loose powder better.
Concealers -Bobbi Brown - Tinted Eye Brightener 2012 Reformulation
greatglamdc 5/10/2010 2:47:00 PM
I love this eye brightner- I've read some of the reviews and was skeptical at first to buy it, but am glad I did. I replaced my Benefit Boe-ing concealer with this pen and it has made my life so much easier! The peachy color fits my undereyes great, and covers up any dark patches easily- blends well, and if you use an extra brush to smooth it out- you dont have to deal with the excess on your pen and can use it for later. Great buy!
It's not extreme, and definitely doesn't bring the party that it promises. I had BB mascara back in the day and thought that this would be just as good. The brush is too flimsy to give you those good solid coats of mascara that you want for that extra 'emph! It's not terrible and it's not great. I give it an "eeh".
Bronzers -Bobbi Brown - Illuminating Bronzing Powder in Antigua
greatglamdc 5/10/2010 2:43:00 PM
I bought this on a whim after chatting with an expert on BB online. I wear this over my Bronzing Powder Light to give my cheeks a lift. I will then put a pop of peony on the apples of my cheeks. I wish I would've gotten a dark color to seem more bronze- it's more a blush to me.
I use this bronzer as an everyday warmer upper for my light skin. It's great because it's not shimmery and doesn't make me look too orange or brown- just a nice light glow.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Cabo Coral
greatglamdc 5/10/2010 2:39:00 PM
When the corals came out for summer I REALLY wanted the shimmer brick, but I have huge pores on my cheeks (probably not as huge as I think they are, but still...) so the artist at the counter used the pot rouge in cabo coral, and i fell in love!!! It's a nice warm change from using peony on the apples of my cheeks, and gives me a great sunkissed glow. I love love love this!
I wear it just like Bobbi say's too- a pop on the apple of your cheeks and it wakes your whole face up! I absolutely love this blush- have had it for years and haven't hit the pan yet. Gorgeous.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Antique Gold
greatglamdc 5/10/2010 2:35:00 PM
I love this cream shadow. It is very buildable, and I wear it with Gold Stone, and it really makes my green eyes pop! I also will use this with the gray slate gel eyeliner, and the three colors together create a really beautiful eye palette. I put this on with a cream eye shadow brush and it has pretty good staying power!
I have this eyeliner in Indigo Ink, Black, and the dark grey color. They are pretty easy to apply if you are used to applying gel eyeliner, and the color stays well. My main issue is trying to line the inner rims of my top lashes- I can never get the gel to stay put, and it always runs. I always get compliments everytime I wear this eyeliner- so it's a keeper.
Tinted Moisturizer -Bobbi Brown - Extra Spf 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm
greatglamdc 5/10/2010 2:15:00 PM
Absolute favorite tinted moisturizer ever! I have an extremely awkward skintone to match (sorry no MAC reference number here), but I'm fair-light-medium with pink undertones (lots of colors- nothing fits right), and was VERY concerned because all of bobbi products seem yellow based, HOWEVER, I use Light-Medium year round and it is PERFECT! In the winters it gives me a nice warm glow, and in the summer it still covers perfectly. I am on contained number three. Many have mentioned that they don't like sticking their fingers in the jar- I dip it out with a qtip, rub it in my hands, and then smear it all over my face and down my neck...and then use a sponge to blend. It's the perfect base for more makeup, or can be used alone. I really do love this product.
