Makeup Pick Me Ups | Bobbi Brown

I recently got my hands on two evergreen makeup products by Bobbi Brown, one of which has become a permanent feature in my daily-sling-bag. The products that I got to try out are The Brightening Blush in Pink 2 from the Surf & Sand Collection and Rich Lip Color in Taffeta 38, the latter being the one that I now carry with me everywhere.

~ This is a lovely fresh everyday pink that is perfect for a day-time summer look.
~ This lipstick has a light-weight color saturated formula that is quite moisturizing and doesn’t dry out after a while but has a slight tendency to settle into creases in time. To avoid this you can blot it 2-3 times.
~ It gives an almost matte look with just a hint of creaminess and is a refreshingly natural color.
~ I would advise not to apply base under the lipstick to help it suit and adapt to your skin-tone in the best way possible.
~ It goes great with a clean nude face.

~ This blusher mirror compact comes with 3 shades, all with a pearlized finish that give an illuminating glow to the face when applied.
~ For the most natural look, I would apply only the largest plate of pink that makes your skin look just a bit sun-kissed. If you mix all three, there is a definite increase in the sheen to the skin that I personally find a bit excessive, but I reckon women might like it for a party/glam look.
~ It is fairly easy to apply and has an impressive staying-power.
~ I use the narrow strip of white as a highlighter even for the inner corners of my eye.
~ I would ideally carry this product with me on a beach holiday where the harsh sunlight would down-play the sheen and give me a natural day-time glow.

This is what both the products look like on me. Over basic concealer and foundation.

    Love the Surf & Sand collection! The blush looks nice. Using white as a highlighter is a great tip. I’d definitely try that.
