My Thoughts:

A little goes a long way with this moisturiser too. It was easily absorbed around the eyes so there was less tug – which is always a good thing. I have used this as a base with other brands and application is seamless.

 

Primer Plus Radiance SPF 35

My Thoughts:

Thank God, a primer which instantly makes skin glow.. PLUS it has SPF in it which is a MUST for even brown skin girls to use daily! It melted into the skin seamlessly, the SPF disappeared and It felt weightless with no drying. LOVE.

 

Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15

Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15 in Neutral Almond

Available at ASOS | £32.00

Product details:

  • Buildable coverage
  • Weightless, long-lasting feel
  • SPF 15 helps protect skin against UV rays

  • Water and sweat resistant

My Thoughts:

I went on holiday and lived my best life, so the shade I asked for is a liiiittle off. However, let’s put aside the shade factor for a moment. This product gave a sheer coverage which is buildable. It was super creamy and silky in terms of the texture which meant blending it was easy. It was like a light tinted moisturiser packed with pigment that left my skin looking refreshed rather than covered.

 

Instant Full Cover Concealer

Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer in Golden

Available at ASOS | £24.00

Product details:

  • Full-coverage formula
  • Concentrated and highly pigmented
  • Weightless feel
  • Brightens dark circles and softens tired lines

My Thoughts:

I have mixed feelings with this product. It has awards attached to it and has a bit of a buzz, but I have never really worked with a concealer that applied ‘like skin’. I must admit, I could try the shade in almond which is darker which would make me feel a little bit more liberal interns of the amount i use. I want skin to look like skin and I found that this was not as full coverage as expected, in face I could see my freckles through this. I was also not too keen to layer it up in fear that there would be too much. Saying that.. It DID brighten up underneath my eyes instantly… maybe I will try this again.

 

 

Soft Matte Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Soft Matte Eyeshadow in Cocoa

Available at Bobbi Brown | £20.00

Product details:

  • Silky powder eye shadow
  • Glides on smoothly and blends easily.
  • Available in a range of shades for lids, lining eyes, and defining brows.

My Thoughts:

This formula is absolutely beautiful. It is soft, creamy buildable and easy to blend out. The pigment looks beautiful on my skin tone and as mentioned in my review.. it makes a beautiful transition colour for a smokey eye and I would love to wear it on it’s own. If you damp the brush you can also use it as a smokey liner. Who doesn’t love multi-use make-up products?

 

Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick

 

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick Golden Bronze

Available at ASOS | £23.50

Product details:

  • Cream eyeshadow stick
  • Can be used to shade, define, smoke and highlight eyes
  • Waterproof formula
  • Long-lasting colour – up to 8 hours
  • Serious staying power
  • No creasing, flaking or fading
  • Winner of the Best Eye Shadow at Women’s Health Beauty Awards, September 2015

My Thoughts:

The staying power of this product is incredible, smudge proof but still gives you enough time to softly blend it out when applied. The formula is super creamy and the pigment packs a punch. I loved using this to create a smokey cut crease for my eye look. I can’t wait to use this on its own or as a wing liner.

 

 

Sparkling Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Sparkling Eyeshadow in AllSpice

Available at Bobbi Brown | £25.50

Product details:

  • Featherweight eye shadow formula
  • Velvety-smooth texture
  • Crease and fade-proof formula
  • Designed to last for up to eight hours
  • Combination of shimmering pearls and fine sparkle.

My Thoughts:

This Eyeshadow has a super creamy, sheer formula that I would love to think is multi-purpose. Although I used for the eyes, you can double it up as a highlighter for sure. Most glitters are chunky and rebel against the stroke of a brush, however this glides on with silky ease creating effortless day to night glamour instantly. All spice looks amazing on my skin tone and I know you guys will LOVE it.

 

Sparkling Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Sparkling Eyeshadow in Sunlight

Available at Bobbi Brown | £25.50

Product details:

  • Featherweight eye shadow formula
  • Velvety-smooth texture
  • Crease and fade-proof formula
  • Designed to last for up to eight hours
  • Combination of shimmering pearls and fine sparkle.

My Thoughts:

Again, this formula provides all the super creaminess as the Allspice, packed with glimmering pigment that blends like a dream. I did find that the undertone of this was a bit cool, so i opted to use it as an inner eye highlight. It’s versatility on my tone (for what I like) is a bit more limited. However it is beautiful and took my eye look to another level.

 

Highlighting Powder Bronze Glow

 

Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder Bronze Glow

Available at ASOS | £36.00

Product details:

  • High-impact, light-reflective powder
  • Formulated with pearl pigments
  • Shimmering pink finish
  • Ideal for strobing
  • Compact mirror
  • Applies smoothly and evenly

My Thoughts:

Nothing I love more than a highlighter that looks natural. So you are guaranteed to glooow on sis using this creamy, buildable, blendable, brown girl friendly product. Strobing doesn’t mean you have to look like a zebra!

 

Pot Rouge Lip & Cheek Tint

Bobbi Brown Sparkling Eyeshadow in Sunlight

Available at ASOS | £22.00

Product details:

  • Multi-purpose cream color for lips and cheeks
  • Blend it on the apples of your cheeks
  • Blot it on your lips for a soft, stained finish
  • Compact mirror
  • Handbag Friendly

My Thoughts:

Yes, you read right. A multi-purpose product which is handbag friendly… which also has a mirror. I could stop there, but I have to mention its creamy formula, that blends out with the tap of a finger or a brush. At first I was a little sceptical with the colours. will it be ashy, will I get the dreaded clown-face? But the pigment was popping and the shade was just right! If you are tired of using the same deep purple/red blushers I definitely recommend this shade alongside the pale pink for a new flush of life in you make-up routine!

 

Luxe Liquid Lip Velvet Matte

Bobbi Brown Luxe Liquid Lip Velvet Matte in Tomboy

Available at ASOS | £28.00

Product details:

  • Liquid lip colour
  • Infused with powder pigments for a vivid, matte finish
  • Wild mango butter extract delivers lush comfort
  • Designed to last for up to 12 hours
  • Applicator helps define upper and lower lip lines
  • Tomboy is a brown rose shade

My Thoughts:

Need a new and unconventional nude lipstick? This beautiful combination of brown and pink creates a beautiful peachy nude shade which complimented my skin tone perfectly. The matte finish  leaves no drying, stiff feeling to the lips as it is packed with nourishing ingredients to keep the product feeling soft, bendable and buildable. I was obsessed with the lip combo I created using a brown liner, the ‘petal’ gloss and this product.

 

 

Bobbi Brown Sparkling Eyeshadow in Sunlight

Available at Bobbi Brown | £22.50

Product details:

  • Formulated with jojoba and avocado oils for immediate hydration
  • Vitamins C and E. Aloe extract soothes lips and helps keep them feeling comfortable.
  • High-shine formula gives lips a sultry sheen for a fuller look.
  • Infused with ultra-vivid pigments for a bold colour payoff

My Thoughts:

This glossy number packs a secret tingle keeping the lips nourished, glossy and full. I wore on top of my Tomboy lipstick but it can also be worn by itself on bare lips – which I admit, I am excited to do. The colour is a beautiful pastel shade, not to cool that you get clown face, but pink enough to not look like just another nude gloss. You will love this, especially using it as a topper or to create natural fuller lips.

 

 

Final Thoughts…

This collection definitely ticks a lot of my ‘must have’ boxes, make sure you watch my review to find out my final thoughts on the whole collection. This look is simple and easy to create in 15 minutes with minimal tools and is PERFECT for beginners and those who want to create a more effortless glam look!
