Hello pretties!

Guerlain Blurring Active Base Primer just got into the game of beauty. The newly launched smoothing and blurring face primer minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles while prolonging makeup hold.

Debenhams Christmas 2017

Hello beauties!

Bobbi Brown Bikini Glow Stick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Bobbi Brown Bikini Glow Stick is part of Bobbi Brown Follow the Sun Summer 2017 Collection (info, photos). The collection was available last month when I visited Bobbi Brown boutique in Covent Garden. I passed by the products a couple of times when I was in Selfridges but this times I was decided to pick some of them. If you are following me on Instagram you already know about my experience at Bobbi Brown counter that day. Long story short for those is that I had to return some products.

My reason? I was sold the Illuminating Bronzing Powders in the permanent, classic packaging instead of the beautiful, limited edition embossed one. I was even more nervous when I went back to the store as the explanation I received was simply…. “but they are the same shades”. Indeed they are but if you are shopping the limited edition item then for sure you want that one, with the embossed design and probably special packaging, right? If I wanted the normal color I’d have asked for. They were simply displaying the limited edition design but selling the normal shades instead….is that normal? It never happened to me before with other brands. Bottom line is that I left the store only with two products: this one and the Instant Full Cover Concealer (review).

U.S. – Now at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bobbi Brown

UK – Now at Selfridges, Harrods

Bobbi Brown Bikini Glow Stick ($36.00 / £26.00 for 0.31 oz. / 9 g) is a pink gold shimmer, one of the three shades released for Summer 2017. In my opinion is a light pink with warm undertones and gold and pink sparkle. It has a very sheer coverage with a bit of sheen, a very soft metallic look. Continue Reading
