This is the best BB creme I have used so far (and I have gone through a few!). I use shade 002 which is perfect for my NW20 skin. Application is in pump form which is so much better than squeezing from a tube! Skin feels soft and light. I usually go for a medium to full coverage foundation but this has actually done a great job without feeling heavy or oily. I used givenchy loose powder on top followed by a swish of guerlain meteorites in teint dore and I was good to go. Impressed with the staying power!
Gorgeous highlighter - very warm and glowing effect without looking like a Christmas tree! Will work well with a tan or can warm up a winter complexion - a great all rounder!
Gorgeous scent and good coverage. Was expecting a longer lasting effect from such a high end brand.
This was part of the 'Year of the Snake' range- really love this highlighter - subtle and flattering and can be used for everyday wear. Very pretty. I have nw20 skin and this is one of my favourite highlighters.
Best eyebrow pencil. Used to use origins fill in the blanks in brunette until it was discontinued. This is an excellent match. Easy to apply and lasts all day.
Lovely palette with colours to suit every skin tone. Smart packaging - always simple and stylish from Bobbi Brown.
One of the best liquid liners I've tried. Lovely thin brush makes it easy to apply. Much better than some of the high end liquid liners for a 1/3 of the price!

I think his eyeliner is amazing. Glides on easily, has great staying power and is a proper black. Highly recommended.

Gutted this produce as been discontinued in the UK. Really flattering and universal taupe. This was my favourite budget eyeshadow colour and i've been trying to match it for ages! The best i've come up with is No.7 mono eyeshadow in mink or mac in copperplate.
Amazing base or highligher as well as a great natural all over colour for a 'no' make up day!
I am an NW20 and fair. I was scared when I saw how dark this bronzer looked but depending on how much you apply it gives a beautiful colour and is very flattering. Great for all year round. A staple in my make up bag! Highly recommeded.

Gorgeous smell and makes skin feel amazing! I also use on my hair. Getting the oil from solid to liquid is a bit of a faff, especially on a cold morning but if you pop it into some hot water before you have a shower, it's ready to use once you're out ofthe shower! Spa quality product at home! Love it!

I like this eyeshadow base and it does do exactly what it says. It tnds to dry out after a cople of months, so make ure you always put the lid on firmly between uses. Eyeshadow does stay on for the day and like most ofthe double wear range, it has staying power. recommended.

Fantastic primer and corrector. I am an NW20 and have redness. I am used to all sorts of green correctors and was surprised to find this to be a yellow corrector with SPF and more importantly.... it works! I use alongside MAC beauty balm before clarins everlasting foundation. Highly recommended.

My favourite concealer ever! Easily blendable, covers dark circles and blemishes. Stays in place all day. I am an NW20 and have got this concealer in light. Originally was going to purchase the double wear concealer but didn't have my shade in stock and so the sales assistant recommended this instead. Am so glad she did. I find the doublewear collection can be quite drying. Highly recommend this concealer!
