I can’t seem to get through a single day without reaching for something from Bobbi Brown… the brand offers some of the most gorgeous beauty products out there, and I haven’t come across a single product that wouldn’t recommend. I absolutely love everything about the brand philosophy, with makeup that enhances your beauty as opposed to masking it. The selection of products to choose from are diverse and cover all bases – from soothing skincare to fuss-free makeup. All the packaging looks premium and feels luxurious – and although it’s not the most affordable brand out there, I think it’s definitely one worth the extra spend. I’ve spoken about my favourite picks from the skincare selection before, but today I thought I’d share some of my go-to makeup must haves from the brand – from primers to blushes to luscious lippies, I’ve got them all listed here:
Definitely my primer of choice this year! With it’s easy-to-travel-with tube, glow boosting pearl pigments and SPF 35, this one has you covered on all fronts. The formula helps blur imperfections and smooth out your skin as you apply it, it’s paraben, phthalate and sulfate-free and packed with UVA and UVB protection. I apply a squeeze of this after my moisturiser and before my foundation to give my makeup the perfect base. It’s also quite moisturising without being too sticky or slippy, which means it works wonderfully in all this heat!
Another amazing product to travel with… my favourite shade is probably Golden Pink, a stunning rose-champagne metallic that gives a subtle sparkle to my lids! I have quite a few of these because they’re incredibly versatile on their own or paired with other shadows to intensify your eye look. The shade selection is wonderful if you love your neutrals, but there are some fun ones in the mix too. The best thing about this formula it’s definitely it’s longevity – the pigment packs a punch and lasts really well all day which makes it the best shadow stick I’ve come across so far.
I want them all! These are my favourite cream blushes and the original formula that got me hooked on cream blushes in the first place… I received a mini Pale Pink cream blush in a travel kit early last year and it was pretty much my only blush of the season, so I had to try more. I’ve been reaching for Calypso Coral, a beautiful orange-pink shade which fits perfectly with my makeup this summer. The formula is creamy but not greasy, it blends like a dream (I apply it with my fingers), and it wears very well throughout the day (no patchiness – yay!). If I could convince you of one must have from this entire post, it would be to invest in a Pot Rouge… without a doubt.
Mine is in the shade Bare Nude but you can get this balm in a whole host of beautifully subtle tints. The formula is very sheer but it builds up to a very pretty balm, which feels incredibly lightweight and lovely on the lips. This is the most fuss-free product of all because you can literally apply this without a mirror, on the go. The balm itself is super nourishing with olive, avocado and jojoba oil to smooths and soften your lips – and I love the fact that it comes in a lipstick tube so your fingers don’t have to get sticky!
Onto something a little more bold and luxe – I love the formula of these lipsticks for richly pigmented, creamy textured goodness all packaged in a perfect little gold tube. My go-to shade in Pink Nude, but in true BB style, there’s a whole array of beautiful shade to choose from in the range. The colours are vibrant and they apply like a dream, without smudging or uneven wear throughout the day. I haven’t really spoken too much about the packaging but this little lipstick definitely feels the part… it’s weighty without being difficult to travel with, and it’s definitely a special purchase if you want to carry a nice lipstick in your handbag.
So there we have it… a mini roundup of some of my faves from Bobbi Brown – but I could definitely list more. I’d love to hear your favourites from the brand in the comments too!
