Bobbi Brown has released the most gorgeous skin serum foundation and me along with some of you guys got to be a few of the first ones to get our hands on it. Make sure you read right until the end because I’m doing a really exciting giveaway for you all.
I’ve been a huge fan of Bobbi ever since I was growing up. I remember when I was little watching my mum use the beautiful black packaged products and saving up as soon as I was old enough to buy some of their makeup brushes. I’ve raved for the past few years about their hero corrector and shimmer block, so when I got the opportunity to meet some of you around the new launch I was so excited.
This was my makeup for my meetup in London last week and I want to talk about some of my favourite products from the range that they used. First of all my skin was prepped and primed. I have heard just about every blogger and beyond rave about Bobbi’s skincare, particularly the eye cream, so I was desperate to try it and see how it worked out for me and my combination skin!!
First up the Intensive Skin Supplement which smells beautifully of grape and felt quite soft and smooth when it went on. The Hydrating Gel Cream has to be one of my favourite products. The tropical grass extract smell is amazing and it just felt so light when it went on, but still gave me the moisture I really need on the numerous dry patches I seem to be getting. I actually think the £38.50 price tag is pretty cheap compared to others on the market that are really similar. Finally, the hydrating eye cream that every raves about. It’s packed with aloe vera which I’ve always found works really well to get rid of any blemishes, and it absorbs really quickly so it doesn’t leave your concealer runny.
Onto makeup and my base was the new Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF 40. It’s designed to be a blend between a serum and foundation so you get all the benefits of a serum with things like lychee and mushroom extract but also get the coverage of a foundation. I was really impressed with how good it was at correcting my skin which has been blotchy and red recently. It’s a medium coverage which you can build up if you want and comes in 16 different shades. It’s designed for normal to dry skin and is so lovely and moisturising, so I added a powder to take any unwanted shine away. I’m so excited for you guys to try this, it’s exclusive to John Lewis nationwide but you can get it online from BobbiBrown.co.uk from 2nd April.
To finish the look we used the Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealer to get rid of any dark circles and then give a flawless finish, these are my favourite products out of the whole collection I’ve used so many pots up over the last few years. The staying power is really good and they don’t crease up, I think it’s safe to say this is my favourite concealer I own. Then we used one of the new brightening bricks. They are a bronzer, highlighter and blusher in one and I think will probably sell just as fast as the original shimmer bricks that everyone loved. On my lips we chose the Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in pale pink which doubles up as a cream blush too. I think this might be a little too bight for me when it comes to using it as a blush as I stick to nudes but for the lips it was just perfect.
To finish on the eyes we used the Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in karat to prime the lids and give a really nice base, followed with a mix of their gorgeous eyeshadows. I’ve included ‘wheat’ and ‘grey’ in this post which can also double up as powders to fill in your brows.
So now to the exciting part! I’m going to be giving away one of the grey eye shadows and the gorgeous lip and cheek pot. All you have to do is comment below and tell me which product from the range is your favourite. It was so lovely to get to meet some of you, and I really hope i’ll be able to do it again soon and meet even more of you! Becky x
