Lip Gloss -Bobbi Brown - Rich Color Gloss in Pink Cocoa
mcrouse 3/17/2012 4:23:00 PM
I love this color. I am usually very anti-gloss because I hate the stickiness of gloss, but I really like this formula and color. I used to wear the bronzed pink in the creamy lip color, but they discontinued it and this is a very close match. On me this goes on neutral pink with a hint of brown. I like lip colors with brown undertones, they seem to go well with my warm, redheaded coloring. Thinking of buying another tube before they discontinue this too.
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Espresso Ink Long Wear Gel Eyeliner
mcrouse 6/12/2010 1:43:00 AM
I LOVE this product. I was using pencils and eyeshadow as liner before and after using this gel eyeliner I will never go back. I am able to make a nice line, as thin or thick as I want and it stays on forever! The color is just a deep, dark brown and it doesn't look as harsh as black would look with my fair coloring. I do think my liner may be drying out a little and may need to repurchase before I am done with the product, but I use this everyday so there is a lot of opening and closing of the container. I love this product so much that I will happily go out and repurchase again and again.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow - Fawn
mcrouse 2/28/2010 7:24:00 PM
My favorite BB shadow. This color truly looks great with blue eyes. Every time I wear this I am always complimented on how blue my eyes look. I like the shimmer shadows because, for me, they are easier to blend then the matte shadows, but they don't have over the top shimmer which is important as I get older. My HG everyday shadow.
Lips -Bobbi Brown - Creamy Lip Color - Bronzed Pink
mcrouse 2/9/2010 5:05:00 PM
Usually, I stay far away from any lip color that is bronze or brown in color so when the MUA at BB picked this shade for me I cringed. To my surprise this is actually a very pretty sheer bronze pink. It is not a wow shade with lots of color, but a nice natural, nude type shade. It is sheer and has shimmer so it looks like I am just wearing a pretty nude gloss without the stickiness that comes with gloss (which is great for me because I don't like gloss.) I would try before you buy because I can see how this may not look good on everyone, but it suits my fair redhead coloring well. Not my HG (BB Vintage Rose is), but nice and surprising and I would repurchase.
This is my favorite BB blush color. It is a soft pink that looks very natural and shows up nicely on my fair to medium skin. The quality is amazing and it doesn't turn colors (orange) like other blushes I have tried. I also love that it is matte. I wear this over BB Bronzing powder and it looks amazing. I do use a skunk brush because I have a tendency to get overzealous with blush. My HG!
Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Lip Color Vintage Rose
mcrouse 2/2/2010 4:00:00 PM
This is a very pretty warm nudey pink shade with a nice sheen, not OTT shimmer. This metallic formula is my favorite in the BB line of lipsticks. Vintage Rose has more beige tones then Pretty Pink (in the same line) for reference. I find that it suits my redheaded coloring very well. My new HG.
Hated this!! It just sat on top of my face and never settled in. Felt very greasy and thick. My cell phone was covered in foundation when I used it while wearing this. I have VERY dry skin so if this foundation looks and feels greasy on me I can only imagine how bad it would be for anyone else. Even the girl who worked at BB when I went back told me she thought this product was bad.
Treatments -Skinceuticals - Refining Night Cream With 1 % Pure Retinol
mcrouse 1/17/2010 6:02:00 PM
This is my first Retinol experience and I am happy with the results. I use it only two nights out of the week and follow with a moisturizing cream.
I love this cream, but I do have VERY dry skin. It does a much better job at moisturizing then many expensive brands I have tried. I use a retanoid one or twice a week at night and an antioxidant serum every morning so I don't feel the need to spend a fortune on lotion and this one works very well and is super cheap.
I was a little hesitant to try this blush because of the shimmer. I have been using Pale Pink and the MUA told me that because of the shimmer in this blush it would blend better then the pale pink. I tried it and the shimmer is very subtle and I hardly notice it at all. It is a very soft, pale pink, but I am not sure it really does anything great for me. I like the quality, but I feel that there are other BB blush colors that suit me better.
Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Lipstick Pretty Pink

I love the formula of the metallic lipsticks. They are not drying like the BB semi-matte lipcolors. The Pretty Pink color is beautiful. BB describes it as a warm pink rose and I find it to be a MLBB (much better) shade on me. It does have a sheen to it, but not over the top shimmer. I own this and Raspberry and love them both. I can't wait to try other colors.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - "Gunmetal" Shimmer Shadow

I use this as a liner and I pair it with BB Sterling eyeshadow. It is a beautiful charcoal gray color with a hint of blue. Works awesome as a liner.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Sterling

This is a really nice silvery eyeshadow with a hint of blue. I pair this with Gunmetal and use the Gunmetal as a liner. Really nice shimmer, not over the top. Very pretty silver.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Basics Eye Palette (2008)
mcrouse 11/14/2009 3:03:00 PM
The colors look so boring and drab in the pan, but seriously amazing on. The colors really bring out my blue eyes. I have such a hard time with browns because everything ends up turning oragne on me, but I think because these colors are taupe (grayish-brown) they suit my cool toned skin really well. Gives me a really nice natural, everyday look. Love, love, love. I also love the packaging. Four colors for $40, not bad.
Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Lip Color - Sandwash Pink #22
mcrouse 3/14/2009 6:50:00 PM
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the color and HATE, HATE, HATE the formula. It is so drying. I have to apply lip balm under. I do continue to buy because I haven't found another brand with the same color and the color just looks amazing one me.
