I’ve never tried anything from Bobbi Brown before so it felt like such a treat to be able to give these beauties a whirl all in one go and get the full experience! I’m more loyal to my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation than anything else in life (other than H Styles) so it was always going to be hard to convert me, but I genuinely LOVED the finish of the Long-Wear Weightless Foundation (shade Ivory) and the Vitamin Enriched Face Base. My skin felt so soft and silky, and despite being lighter coverage than my normal base, it was super buildable and still offered a really pretty and perfected finish.
I was a little apprehensive when I first swatched the Bronzer (shade Natural) as the pigment was farrrr stronger than my usual pick, but it was easy to avoid any harsh lines by tapping off excess powder and applying with a light hand. It’s definitely not one to put on in a badly lit bathroom or on an early morning as I think it would be easy to go overboard. Regardlessly, the colour gave a gorgeous sun-kissed glow and made me pine after a summer holiday! I also popped a wash of this over my lids which tied everything together and makes it so easy to do a minimal product face.
Mascaras are always a bit trial and error for me but overall I enjoyed using the Eye-Opening Mascara, in particular how jet black the formula is! I did find by the end of the day it had transferred slightly under my eyes, however, I did test it on an unusually warm September day. The bronzer and mascara combined made for a really simple but lovely eye look which can be applied super quickly and effortlessly.
Finally, I chose the High Shimmer Lip Gloss in the shade Bare Sparkle which is a beautiful champagne colour. I’m normally a matte lip kinda gal but again wanted to try something a little different and I’m so glad I did. The colour payoff isn’t mega noticeable but for a gloss that’s to be expected! It lasted really well when eating and drinking and dried down to not be sticky or feel invasive on the lips which was really lovely.
Having tried the products a few more times both individually and with my everyday makeup products I’m sold on the ‘you but a bit sleeker’ finish they give! The primer has become a staple already that I know I’ll be repurchasing as soon as I’ve finished this pot.
