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!

Stila In The Garden Palette Swatches, Review, Photos

The Stila In the Garden Palette has just about all you need for spring to achieve either a pretty and natural look, or a spring look with a pop of color. The palette comes nicely packaged with 10 eye shadow shades and a coordinating eyeliner. I bought one to swatch and love it. Stila shadows are always quality and the shades in this set are perfect for spring.

Below are photos and swatches of my In The Garden Palette. The packaging is a thick cardboard case with the Stila logo.

Inside are ten shades for neutral and colorful looks that will work for either day or evening. Plus an eyeliner.

Here are swatches of the Stila In The Garden Palette. First up are swatches of the top row with the shades Chinois (matte creamy white), Breeze (shimmering beige), Bark (a particularly nice shimmering taupe and the photo doesn’t quite show how pretty it really is), Freesia (shimmery violet blue), and Rosette (metallic pink violet).

Next are swatches from the bottom row on In The Garden with the shades Nectar (neutral matte creamy beige-almost a perfect match for my skin tone, so it is a bit hard to see), Honey (metallic bronze gold), Sage (a gorgeous shimmering light green), Moss (dark olive/brown green with light shimmer), and Juniper (deep shimmer forest green).
