Brand Focus: Bobbi Brown
Written September 4, 2014
Recently, I (along with both my mom and sister) have developed a Bobbi Brown obsession. Including products from Bobbi's skincare and makeup ranges, quite the problem has emerged (mostly because, not going to lie, Bobbi Brown products are not cheap). Nonetheless, here are my absolute favorite Bobbi products plus the reasoning behind the adoration:
1. Tinted Eye Brightener
I've definitely mentioned this product in a post before and there's a reason; this under-eye concealer is absolutely incredible. My eye area is very sensitive and has a tendency to get exceptionally dry. This product is perfect, as it provides coverage, hydration, and brightening (as the name suggests), while being extremely lightweight and wearable.
2. Skin Foundation Stick
This product, as ridiculous as it seems, has made a huge difference in my life. I first discovered it about two months ago while browsing at a Bobbi Brown counter in my local Macy's. The women working recommended it to me, and I was initially very hesitant; I'm not normally one for foundation sticks, as they can be quite unsanitary and drying. Nonetheless, I purchased it and am so glad I did. It provides full coverage but still looks like your skin. Whenever I wear it, I get compliments on my skin (something that never happens). This foundation is a miracle.
3. Full Coverage Face Brush
I'm a firm believer that the tools one uses for makeup application are crucial for the effect created. I use this brush in combination with the Skin Foundation Stick. These two team up to create the perfect duo, creating a very (apparently) flawless base. Plus, it's extraordinarily soft!
4. Soothing Cleansing Oil
This product has largely changed my perspective on skincare. Before this entered my life, I was always one for face-wipes to remove my makeup (even though I had heard over and over that they aren't good for one's skin). Not only is this much more gentle, but it is a two-in-one product; it somehow, manages to dissolve my makeup as well as acting as a face wash. Thus, it's both a time and skin saver.
5. Hydrating Face Tonic
I use this both morning and night, after I cleanse my skin and before I apply my moisturizer. Another new addition to my skincare routine, I've noticed an immense difference in the overall appearance of my skin. I attribute that largely to this product, as I notice it becomes more dry and lifeless looking when I forget to use it.
6. Hydrating Eye Cream
This is one of my all-time favorites. Not only is it extremely hydrating (as the name suggests), it's very soothing as well; it's great to apply in the morning to brighten up the eye area as well as if you're going for the "au natural" look.
7. Intensive Skin Supplement
Although this product belongs to my mom, I sneakily "borrow" it from time to time. Originally intended for anti-aging purposes, this product is also great for creating more youthful, hydrated, and healthy looking skin.
Last but certainly not least is the Bobbi Brown blush in the shade "Pretty Coral." Surprisingly, this is the first time I've ever incorporated blush into my everyday makeup routine. This is due to the fact that, because my skin is prone to redness, I instinctively avoided blush. I finally understand the hype. Instead of drawing attention the the redness, it creates a healthy flush and a less flat-looking face. I'm assuming this largely involves the shade and it's compatibility to my skin-tone, which I got professionally matched at the Bobbi counter.
Have you ever tried any Bobbi Brown products?
