My Bobbi Brown Wishlist

When it comes to iconic cosmetic companies Bobbi Brown stands out. With a focus on natural and feminine shades, I already own a number of Bobbi Brown products and, at any given time, I have more on my radar. Here is a wish list of items that I am currently coveting.  These items are from Harrods which, if you are looking for Bobbi Brown UK items, is a great place to shop.

(1)  Caviar and Oyster Palette

I can’t tell you how many times I have almost ordered this. With four matte shadow shades and four shimmer shades, it is perfect for creating smoky eye looks or sparkling highlight looks for an evening out on the town or for parties. It comes paired with a shimmering highlighter for your cheeks to create a sparkling glow. The entire compact will also fit nicely in your purse. The shades are all universally flattering and versatile.

(2) Bobbi Brown BB Cream

I love BB creams, and Bobbi Brown reportedly has one of the best outside of the Asian companies. I been wanting to try it for some time and simply have not gotten around to it yet. If you have good skin, you can wear a BB cream alone. I like to use BB creams as a primer and put a tinted powder over it since I have some hyperpigmentation to hide. A good BB cream will act as a multi-tasker by providing coverage, skin care, and SPF protection all in one. The Bobbi Brown version offers SPF 35 protection.

(3) Uber Nude Lip and Eye Palette

This lip and eye palette is perfect for the neutral and nude shadow lover. That certainly includes me! It includes two lip shades, a shimmer gloss, and three matte shadows. It is great for everyday looks, while the shimmer lip items allow it to be dressed up a bit as well.

(4) Full Coverage Brush

I would love to try the Bobbi Brown full coverage brush and see how it compares to other similar brushes such as Urban Decay’s good karma optical blending brush. This type of brush has become popular for creating perfect foundation looks by stippling on the makeup and then buffing it. I have had great results with the UD brush and suspect that Bobbi Brown would make an even better one. Hopefully I will try it out at some point!

Clinique Super Balm

I’m what you call a lip balm addict. I have tubes of the stuff in my purse, on various tables throughout the house, in the car, and on my nightstand. My problem is, I like to wear lipcolor, but it’s often drying. Thankfully, I found that Clinique’s Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss provides the best of both worlds – the emollient effects of a lip balm and the flattering coverage of a sheer gloss.

When I first put the gloss on, I noticed how smooth the texture was. Many of the cheaper drugstore brands are sticky, grainy, or gummy. Who wants to keep pulling their hair off their mouth because it keeps sticking to the lip gloss? I didn’t have this problem with Clinique. The texture of Superbalm stayed smooth on my lips and my hair stayed off the front of my face. For that reason alone, it’s worth the $15 price tag.

A second thing I noticed was how soft my lips stayed while wearing the gloss. Usually, I have to layer lip balm under whatever color I’m wearing, but this product contains moisturizing ingredients that kept my lips from drying out. Even after the gloss wore off, I noticed that my lips remained hydrated. It’s nice to know that I’m providing them with conditioning.

This product comes in several shades. My chosen color is Black Honey. It gives my lips a pretty stained look as though I ate a bowl of cherries. Best of all, the color stands out and lasts a while. The product gives a nice shine but doesn’t give you that plastic coating look.

Since high school, I’ve used the Clinique brand of products. I trust them for the consistent quality and their continued research in the cosmetic industry.

E.l.f. Studio Lipgloss Review

Below is a guest review of e.l.f. Studio lipgloss.

I found my favorite lip gloss at Target. I never thought that a store like Target would carry any type of makeup that I like using, but I have enjoyed the flavors and colors of this lip gloss for almost a year. The brand of lip gloss that I get is e.l.f. Studio. The gloss comes in a clear bottle with an applicator that is similar to what you would find in fingernail polish.

One of the reasons I like this gloss is because there are many flavors to choose from. I don’t have to use a clear gloss all the time. My favorite so far is the cranberry. Most of the glosses that I have purchased so far have glitter in them. The shimmer makes it fun to wear at night on a date or when I am going to school. The glitter is not clumped like some other lip glosses are. I have used some that have large bits of glitter in them, and this leaves uneven spots on my lips. This gloss goes on smooth, and I can easily add more gloss if desired.

Another reason I like this gloss is the wide variety of colors. The cranberry is a dark pink, but there are also reds and light pinks to choose from. One of the colors I wear to work is called Birthday Suit. It gives just enough color to bring a little vibrancy to my lips, but it does not look bold enough for my manager to make me take it off. This lip gloss brings a look to my mouth that I have not discovered. I can’t even tell I have it on most of the time. The price is great, and the quality is even better. I will probably continue to use this product as long as they keep coming up with great colors and flavors.
