Getting acquainted with Bobbi Brown

15 July 2009

I consider Bobbi Brown cosmetics very high-end. I've heard so much about their concealers, correctors, foundation and shimmer bricks but I haven't had the chance to try any of them until recently (thanks to Birthday money!) I'd say partly because I wasn't that brave to branch out unless i watch something on YouTube. The videos that I subscribe to are more MAC oriented than anything else except Pixiwoo and even after watching her vids and I am so tempted to buy anything from BB, I still missed it.

A new Bobbi Brown counter opened at Myer Perth store, right next to the MAC counter. I got the inside info a week before they opened and I was already excited about special promos they will be having as an opening thing. And i guessed right, they do have a "buy any product and get a gift". I didn't give it a miss, i indulge myself and I am quite happy I did.

Here's what I got:

  1. Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual
  2. Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Flesh (Matte)
  3. A faux leather pouch with a mascara and lip paletter as gift for their opening

THE Book

I skimmed through the pages and basically read most of it. I am so amazed about what I've learned so far. I've learned that Bobbi Brown is known for the "Natural" look. She's more on enhancing your best features as oppose to creating a different you which I TOTALLY AGREE! The books has step by step tips on applying foundation, concealers, etc. It's just a great read!

Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Flesh (Matte)

I have been looking for a matte base eyeshadow for a while but didn't want to settle with MAC for a change and again thanks to Birthday money and a new counter because I finally got a base. I chose a yellow undertoned eyeshadow because it brightens the eye. I was so close of getting something light pink but the consultant said it can make my eyes look tired and we don't want that :) Overall, I am happy with my choice.

The Gift :)

So this is the gift, Everything Mascara - which I've heard so much about and 3-colour tiny lip palette! I used the lipsticks today and they are very sheer so it's more like a gloss :)

Now that I am acquainted with Bobbi Brown and have read the book, I am going to channel my natural makeup skills :) I want to get concealers, hydrating cream, correctors, powder and blush! is that a lot? LOL
