Bobbi Brown Haul

Thursday, August 2, 2012

There are so many amazing cosmetic brands out there, it's hard to ever commit to just one!  However, I always find myself itching for Bobbi Brown every so often!  When i purchase a Bobbi Brown product, i know that I'm getting the best possible quality, and that's important to me!  Last month, i went on a little shopping trip and walked away with some wonderful goodies that I'd like to share with you! So you all know how much i absolutely swear by Bobbi's Beach Fragrance during the summer months right?  Since i already have that, i figured I'd add the lotion as well as the shimmer fragrance oil to compliment this already phenomenal scent.  Well, i was certainly not disappointed.  The lotion is light and very hydrating.  This lotion gives you just the right amount of hydration without feeling heavy on your skin.  The wonderfully light scent is the perfect compliment to this cult favorite fragrance.  The oil is also wonderfully hydrating but also adds a gorgeous glow with a very subtle amount of shimmer making this perfect for showing off your sun kissed legs and arms!  I highly recommend both! 

Next, i was running low on my all time favorite Shimmer Bricks in Bronze.  I always pack this gorgeous versatile little compact with me when i travel to the Caribbean.  I find that it's an all in one kind of product.  I wear it on my eyes and cheeks... heck, i dab this pretty baby all over for an added glow!  Top it with some mascara and lip gloss and you have a simple yet gorgeous look for your evening plans.  I mean, in super warm weather, you don't need much more then that to complete a look right? 

With this palette, you can basically choose to use an eyeshadow brush to wear each individual color on your eyes, OR you can use a blush brush or bronzer brush to dab all the colors combined and apply.  It's seriously one of my favorite shimmer bronzers. 

Another product i fell instantly in love with and will never do without again is the Pot Rouge in Calypso Coral.  Seriously, this color is peeeerrrrrfect for this time of year!  It's just bright enough and goes on smoothly giving you a bit of a dewey look.  You can apply this beauty on your lips as well.  Again, I'm a huge fan of any product that can multi-task, and this gorgeous cheek/lip color does just that!

Lastly, I'm always on the market for a great concealer.  You see, as a mommy of twins, beauty sleep is one thing I'm often deprived of.  I own several brands, some i love, some i don't.  I also have concealers for different occasions.  Meaning, some are milder, which i can get away with when i am more rested, or have a tan and don't need as much.  Then there are those heavy duty ones i use when i desperately need to erase those atrocious bags under my eyes that scream get back into bed asap!  This particular one is what i arm myself with when i have one of those days!  It's seriously industrial strength!  Interestingly enough, my sister (a former MAC artist and current freelancing makeup artist) suggested i pair it when a corrector.  Really?  A corrector?  Well it basically neutralizes dark under eye circles.  Umm I'll take two please! Heck, I'll give anything a try if it makes me look well rested when I'm really not!  So i picked up Bobbi Brow's Corrector in Bisque and topped it off with the Creamy Concealer Kit in Beige and voila.... you'd never know i was sleep deprived... EVER! I love that it comes with a setting powder that you apply over the concealer to create an even look without streaking.  LOVE this product!

Well, there you go... my Bobbi Brown Haul is complete.  I hope you enjoyed it and found it some what informative.  These products are available at Sephora, Nordstrom or Bobbi Brown stores.  So tell me, what's your favorite Bobbi Brown product?  I'd love to know!  Thank you SO MUCH for reading!  Don't forget to become an official follower of FMM!  XOXO Carla.
