Makeup Of The Day


Brightening-BlushI mentioned in yesterdays post I’d show you what the Bobbi Brown Brightening Blush in the shade Pink Truffle would look like on. It’s equally pretty as both a blush (which is what I did in this look), or as a bronzer. It’s totally universal and can be worn year round for a warm fresh glow to the skin. It’s something I would’ve looked past at the store, not sure how to wear it. But I love how it looks on my cheeks! You can use the three shades as a blush and/or highlighter to brighten, depending on the look you want to go for. The shade on the left is a sheer natural looking blush with a soft sheen finish. I swirled my blush brush around the entire compact and popped it onto the apples of my cheeks. Although looking a bit glittery in the pan, it doesn’t look that way on the cheeks, especially once its all blended in together.

motdI’ve been fairly consistent using the Burberry Cashmere foundation since I got it back in October (see my first post about it here). So I thought I’d do another look featuring the foundation I love and enjoy so much, but with a bit more variety.

Bobbi Brown | Holiday 2016

Bobbi-Brown-Holiday-2016There’s nothing more exciting than working with one of your ultimate favourite skincare (or beauty) brands that you’ve been using, buying, and trying for YEARS on end. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy working with all the brands I show you. It’s just THAT more exciting when I’m working with the ultimate-fave’s. Ya know?

Bobbi Brown, oh golly. I’ve been using her extra eye repair cream (eye cream) for years. I don’t even remember when I started using it, it’s been that long ago. Well before we made the move to California, and that was 3 years ago. I remember when living 45 minutes away from Toronto, and going to Holt Renfrew, picking up the Bobbi Brown products and getting it wrapped up in that white and grey striped packaging, and pink bag from Holts. It was a luxurious experience, and I felt so smart walking around with my purchase around the big city of Toronto. It’s one of the products that will remain in my Sephora cart at all times.

Working with them in 2016 to review more beauty products has been an absolutely pleasure. It’s been difficult to get my foot in the door to work with them which makes me that more thankful that I’m working with the brand.

Bobbi Brown Holiday 2016 collection is based around wine and chocolate. Many peoples favourite pairings, I understand! I have two of the pieces from this particular collection that I’ve been leaving in my makeup bag the past two weeks and using on a daily basis. Powders, at that! And you know it must be good, if I’m using a powdered product, right?

Inspired by Bobbi Brown’s two favourite indulgences: wine and chocolate, the collection consists of blushes and eyeshadow palettes all ranging from deep colours to soft natural shades all in gorgeous gold packaging.

Brightening-BlushBrightening Blush • Pink Truffle| $50. A lit-from-within glow this is a limited edition brightening blush that comes in two shades. It has subtle shimmer but nothing too unwearable. In fact, I thought this was going to go on a bit bronzier but it was really a fantastic blush shade for my skintone. It looks fantastic on, if I do say so.

French-Pink-blushGlow to Go Blush & Illuminate| $36. This set contains the French Pink blush along with the Platinum Sparkle Illuminator, it certainly adds that sparkle if you want to apply it onto your cheekbones to make an impression at a Holiday party! Oooh, imagine it at New Years, how fun would that be?!

French-Pink-swatchBobbi Brown Pink blush swatched on the back of my hand. Luckily this powder blush is on the sheer side, which is excellent in my mind because sometimes I tend to go a wee-bit overboard with the blush. Though, you can build them up moderately!


Sparkle-Illuminator-swatchDefinitely adds that New Years Eve sparkle to the skin, doesn’t it? Perfect for this time of year, and if we’re being honest I think I’d take this out and only use it at Christmas/New Years.

Hey! Come back tomorrow to see Bobbi Brown’s Brightening Blush in Pink Truffle on my face for a Makeup Of The Day look!

Bobbi Brown | Original 10 Lipsticks (swatches!)

Bobbi-HeaderBobbi Brown celebrates her 25th anniversary lip collection, the original 10. All of them being completely easy to wear and in a creamy-matte finish. Each one complements any skin tone, and from 1 to 10, the shades range from a pale salmon colour to a classic red.

BobbiBrown-Original10The Original 10 travel-sized are limited edition in this beautiful case, and once you open up the magnetic closure box, there’s a gorgeous burgundy red velvet inside (see towards the end of the post), with Bobbi Brown in gold lettering. It’s a stunner. It’s hard to pick a favourite because most of the shades are something I would easily wear I love all the neutral easy to wear shades. No wonder this got Bobbi Brown noticed back in 1991.

Let’s see what the look like on.

Bobbi-Brown-SalmonBobbi Brown Salmon| A peach colour for those who love a pale lip.

Bobbi-Brown-BeigeBobbi Brown Beige| Soft for the woman who likes a muted lip. Use also to blend and tone down lip colour that’s too intense.

Bobbi-Brown-RaisinBobbi Brown Raisin| A great evening colour if you usually go for a nude lip. This is also gorgeous as a neutral on dark skin tones.

Bobbi-Brown-BrownBobbi Brown Brown| An excellent pinky nude shade.

Bobbi-Brown-RoseBobbi Brown Rose| This one brightens up all skin tones without looking over done.

Bobbi-Brown-PinkBobbi Brown Pink| The perfect shade of pink that’s the right kind of bright.

Bobbi-Brown-Burnt-RedBobbi Brown Burnt Red| The perfect brown-red.

Bobbi-Brown-RedBobbi Brown Red| A classic red that adds elegance to any look.



It’s no surprise to hear that the lip colours (the original 10) are her bestsellers that started it all. Bobbi’s creamy, semi-matte lip colour was the first formula to launch (and sold out instantly). Each colour feels exactly the same on the lips, they’re so comfortable and easy to glide on without a drag – instantly making you look polished. Which one is your favourite colour that I tried on? Or which one would you pick?
