Bobbi Brown has finally announced the launch of their new BB cream. It’s about time BB had a BB cream, it’s so fitting! Bobbi Brown’s BB Cream SPF 35 promises to be the all in-one beauty product we’ve been waiting for. It’s designed to moisturize, control oil, even out skin tone, and even combats wrinkles. It’s loaded with antioxidants and leaves your skin looking radiant. It comes in 5 shades and is easy to use, wear it alone or under your foundation for a super polished look.
This by far my favorite must have. Say adios to those dreadful dark and droopy under eye circles, Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer work together to give you an instant eye lift without the pain and cost of a real one. It is super creamy and easy to blend. It lasts all day, but at midday I know that I have to blend it because sometimes it tends to crease.
A flawless under eye can be achieved in two easy steps. First apply the corrector with a concealer brush. The corrector works as its name suggests, it color corrects the dark uneven pigment below your eye. The creamy corrector cuts out the gray and/or purplish skin tone you may have under your eye. It’s typically much brighter than your natural skin color and it works almost like tattoo cover up, but it is not as heavy.
Next the concealer is applied on top. Its job is to blend the corrector and bring the area back to a natural color. Once blended, use a fluffy brush and powder to set.
Quick Tip – Before I apply the corrector I like to apply eye cream and then some primer. The eye cream adds moisture and the primer prevents the concealer from creasing.
Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Gloss in Citrus is a sheer neon orange. It’s a new shade that came out this spring. It’s bright orange in the tube, but goes on shiny and sheer. I enjoy wearing it alone and it also looks great over lipstick. My favorite combo is Citrus over Coral Pink Creamy Lip Color. The Citrus really plays up the coral color in Coral Pink making my lips look brighter. The applicator is nice and glides smoothly on my lips, this gloss has a light minty scent to it. I would have preferred a citrus scent to match its name, but that’s okay.
Here’s a look at what will be featured next week! Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Lip Color promises rich color and creamy shine.
Coral Pink is a bright warm pink; on me it looks very peachy, which I like. I would have liked a creamier formula, this lipstick doesn’t glide on as easily as NYX’s Black Label Lipstick. I guess I was expecting more from the shea butter formula or maybe I got a bad apple from the batch. I usually love the quality of their products! Well I do however, love the color combination when you pair Coral Pink with Bobbi’s Sheer Color Lip Gloss in Citrus. This combo gives my lips the perfect balance of orange that we have seen for the tangerine tango color trend. My lips feel moisturized and smooth while wearing both.
Bobbi Brown $23
This palette features six classic Bobbi Brown nude shades that are made to compliment any skin tone. These eye shadows help you achieve that “no makeup” look. These shades almost look invisible on my eyelids.
The palette includes:
> 2 Eye Shadows in Chino (matte light cool beige) and Stone (matte neutral grey brown)
> 3 Shimmer Wash Eye Shadows in Praline (nude with golden pearl), Champagne Truffle (warm pink beige), and Cocoa Berry (rich brown plum)
> 1 Metallic Eye Shadow in Pink Chandelier (warm pink with golden pearl)
> 1 Dual Ended Eye Liner/ Angle Eye Shadow Brush
I’m not a big fan of this palette, I think most of the colors are too neutral and appear slightly reddish or muddy on my eyelids. I also feel that the flecks of golden sparkle in Pink Chandelier are too large. It doesn’t mesh with the “barely there” theme of the other nude shades.
I like the way that the Praline/Chino/Stone combo looks on me, it’s very natural and blends well. Adding Cocoa Berry quickly makes this combo an easy night out look.
