Bobbi Brown

So my usual Friday shop happened on Thursday last week. And I have realised that my weekly shop has become a bit of a habit and I have been spending rather a lot of money. Eek! I have been getting some pretty things though (there goes the shopaholic in me).

So this time I thought I try the Bobbi Brown range. I was drawn in by the Pot Rouges, which can be used on cheeks and lips, even though I'm not really a blusher kinda gal. I tried a few colours, but fell in love with the shade 'powder pink'.

Interestingly, when I asked the MUA for the product, she said that they only had the old packaging, but that I was effectively getting 'twice the amount of product'. So the new packaging is designed to draw people in (ooh, newnew) but reduce the amount of product you get whilst keeping the price the same. Really?! If so, not impressed.

As you can see, I also bought one of their cream eyeshadows. They had some amazing shades (I really liked the sandy, copper colours) but eventually I settled for the shade 'Orchid'. It's a beautiful lilac grey shimmery colour, unlike anything else I own.

Here's a swatch (I had to use the inside of my hand as I have writing all over the top of it! Bad habit...)

I love it!

Ooh, and here's the pot rouge on my lips

Not sure if you can really see it properly here. It's subtle, but a gorgeous dusty pink colour.

Here it is on the cheeks...

Again, not a great photo to show off the product, oops. I had to rub it in quite a bit because it was initially quite dark, which I think looked a bit weird against my pale skin. It has still given me more colour, but I think I won't rub it in as much, be daring!

I can see myself using these products on an everyday basis.

Have you tried any Bobbi Brown products? What are your faves?


  1. These products look great, I love the blush on you. I really want to try the pot rouges. Its bad of them to reduce the product with the new packaging, but all companys do it. xx

  2. The blush looks really good on you :)

    Naughty to reduce with packaging though!
    My flatmate adores the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner, I'm definitely trying it when mine runs out!
