I’ve mentioned in the past that I have no proficiency in the world of contouring, and that also applies to eyes shadow application. Yes I’ve owned plenty of eye shadows in my lifetime, but I’ve always applied one color at a time. I never got into using the paint by numbers directions that come with palettes. But I’m challenging myself to change this. I know I’m missing out on a lot of fun by not experimenting with my eyes.

Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powder in “Golden” and “Buff”: Photos, Review, & Swatches


20160316_125804

Back when I reviewed Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powder in “Buff,” I told you I was already planning to buy “Golden” as well. My thought was that Golden would make a nifty, sheer, summer bronzer or touch-up palette. And here’s the truth: Golden actually does work for me as a pseudo-bronzer.

For this Part 8 of the Color Adjusting Lip Series, I bumped the comparison review of Dior Addict Lip Glows, 001, 004, and 005 and of the Physicians Formula pH powered Glosses in Natural, Dark Pink, and Light Pink, to instead show you this limited edition Dior Addict Lip Glow Liner- 001- Universal Pink. For me, at least, it seems like this product was released quietly or under the radar. That’s too bad because interested people may end up missing it while it’s available.

Any time of year is good for a new bronzer. While I have some deep cosmetic loyalties to eye makeup (mascara: Lancome Définicils – Black, primer/ shadow base: Trish McEvoy Eye Base – Sand, and eyeliner: Trish McEvoy Gel Eyeliner – Arabian Nights), I vacillate on face color. Yet ironically, bronzer is the type of makeup I’m most attached to. I usually have at least two powder bronzers and one cream (such as Becca Bronzing Skin Perfector)  in my makeup bag and several in my vanity. I do like blush, and I love eyeliner and mascara. But I’d be unhappy without bronzer.

Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powder (Brick) – Buff – Swatch and Review

Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powder – BUFF

Suddenly there’s a ton of excitement in the Bobbi Brown nerve center of my brain. I’ve got Bobbi coded neurons and synapses firing and doing whatever else they do. It’s all because I have in my possession three brand new Bobbi products: 1. Nourishing Lip Color (reviewed here), 2. Extra Lip Tint, and 3. Nude Finish Illuminating Powder (Brick) – Buff, shown below.

This face powder comes in an unusual beige toned compact instead of in Bobbi’s typical black compact. However the size of the compact and outer package felt familiar. You get a non-warping mirror inside this compact, which I appreciate sooo much.

Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powder is sold in 6 skin matching

Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Color – Blush – Neutral Pink Brown – Swatches, Review, and Ingredients

just got my hands on a Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Color and boy am I excited. (This is where some of you may roll your eyes. But I’m seriously excited! It’s like being the first person to know a secret!) As far as I can tell, this brand new lipstick is not yet widely available and may be in pre-order status at some stores. However you can already check out the color selection on Bobbi’s site.

For my first time using this new lip color, I chose to get “Blush,” which is described as a “neutral pink brown,” and which sounded close to a nude color in my mind. The lipstick comes in the signature Bobbi packaging used for her Lip Color, which is different than what she uses for the Creamy and Sheer lip colors. In any case, I love Bobbi’s Lipsticks and would own every single one if I could.

OK now. I may as well just get right to it and show you how this pretty girl looks:
