Hi guys, this week I’m trialling some new beauty essentials! If you’re anything like me, every time you pop into your favourite department store for a spot of window shopping, you inexplicably walk out with a bag of beauty products – what’s that? You’re not meant to go inside the store when you’re window shopping? Perhaps, that’s where I’m going wrong! – those New Product stands are just far too persuasive! As I found a little spare time this weekend, I decided to try out my latest guilty purchases – a summer selection from one of my favourite beauty brands: Bobbi Brown.
I must admit – the pale pink colour of this product was quite a surprise, but I’d heard so many positive reviews of CC Creams (AKA the new BB cream on the block) that I had to give it a try. For those who don’t know, CC creams stand for ‘Colour Correction’ – they’re like an amped-up version of BB Creams in that they brighten skin, while hiding dark circles and redness too! Despite the pink colour, once rubbed in the product was light, easy to spread and gave my skin a healthy glow – with the bonus of a high SPF too!
Say the word ‘brightening’ and I’m sold – this summer I’m working on perfecting a natural glow rather than resorting to fake tan. The Brightening Blush is the perfect mix of three products: bronzer, blusher AND highlighter all in one nifty palette. They’re subtle but shimmery and come attached to a mirror – handy for when you need a little touch-up!
I absolutely love lip colours; from lipsticks to pencils, from MAC to NARS, I do love to try them all! When I spotted this new shade from Bobbi Brown, I knew I had to give it a try! The Electric Violet shade has a blue undertone which brightens teeth and dull skin – plus, it’s ultra-strong, feminine colour is a perfect alternative to the classic red. The formula is creamy and nicely pigmented, making it easy to build-up colour in a flash – this is one I’ll definitely be wearing again!
