As mentioned a while ago, I’d like to start a regular feature focussing on brands and what they’re about. I’ll start with those I am most familiar with but I intend to branch out and experience other brands, mainly to open my mind a little more (I’m guilty of the ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ approach to certain elements of beauty) but also because I think/hope it’ll make a good introduction to the various brands available on the UK market.
There are many products the Bobbi Brown range is famous for, but when referring to this section I prefer to pick a product that I believe brought something new to the market. Therefore I’ll say the Bobbi Brown breakthrough product would be the Corrector. This is a make-up product that you apply under the eye which neutralises any dark/blue tones. When matched, you’ll find your colour suggestion will be pretty close to your own skintone, whereas under-eye concealers are usually a shade lighter to combat darkness. The Corrector is intended to be worn under normal under-eye concealer with the view that it packs an extra punch in concealing this problem area. It really is a saviour for days when you’ve had little sleep and it’s really obvious!
Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow
It’s so difficult to find cream eyeshadows that will stay in place but this formula is impressive as it’s soft enough to apply and blend but once it’s dried it will not budge. I have this in a couple of shades, one of which is Galaxy and when layered up, it looks like I have a foil applied to my eye as it sets and looks flawless. The shade range available is impressive and it won’t leave your eye until you’re ready to take it off.
