Bobbi Brown is known for her classic, high end products. Her latest release is the Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation (RRP $78) with built in SPF 15, just in time for summer.
The foundation has a lovely, light and creamy formula that blends straight into the skin to achieve that barely there look. It has added Glycerin and Shea Butter to hydrate and replenish the skin leaving it plumped and refreshed all day long.
The coverage is promised to last for up to 12 hours and can be built upon to give a fuller, richer coverage or worn as a sheer and lightweight foundation. The emollients blends with a film former make the foundation set and last, as well as giving in a natural, skin-like texture. Perfect for people with oily skin, or those of us living in warm and humid climates.
Bobbi created a “soft focus” effect in this foundation that evens out the skin tone and immediately reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores, so even the most problematic skin will love this foundation.
However, while the application is lovely and even and long lasting, there is one drawback. The formula is strongly scented like lavender, and while initially pleasant, once directly under your nose can be stifling and overbearing. It does eventually fade, and it comes down to personal preference about scented products. But we are loving this formula.
It’s available now in 18 different shades.
Continuing the long wear trend, Bobbi Brown has released the Creamy Matte Lip Colour (RRP $44) range as a new addition. Playing on the classic beauty staple, matte lipsticks, the collection provides a solid, bold lip, perfect for any occasion.
Traditional matte lipsticks tend to be drying or weak in colour, however Bobbi’s innovative new formula allows the best of both worlds. Creamy and smooth, the lipsticks glide onto your lips with ease, making application effortless. The richly pigmented colours release with the warmth of your lips and promise up to eight hours of wear. Formulated with emollients and soft waxes, the lipsticks form a barrier between your lips and the harsh conditions also keeping them conditioned and hydrated.
The range includes a wide selection of colours with a high concentration of pigments. With colours like True Pink, a sweet, feminine and work-appropriate colour, and Jenna, a vivacious, fiery orange, perfect for a girls night out, there is a colour that will suit everyone.
Available in 12 shades; Red Carpet, Jenna, Crushed Plum, True Pink, Warm Beige, Latte, Pale Peach, Calypso, Valencia Orange, Tawny Pink, Razzberry, Pink Lily.
