ONE BRAND BEAUTY 3!
Hello Loves!!! 🙂
So, I’m sure the title is new to you, but this is the first post of the new series ONE BRAND BEAUTY 3!! I was thinking about this one when I figured it would be pretty cool to mention some of my favourite TOP 3 beauty and makeup bits from some of my favourite brands! ❤
This series will include high end brands and lower cost effective brands, so that there is a nice mix for everyone! There will be one of these weekly, EVERY Wednesday for the next 2 months. In the blog post I will be talking about what is what and explaining what it does, its price value and quality. 🙂 So, without further dilly dallying, LETS GET STARTED!!!
(From Left to Right).
This is one of the most loved products from BB and it’s so easy to see why! The Shimmer Brick is a beautiful highlighter that gives a stunning bronze gold finish! Swirling your brush over the entire product gives you a beautiful shimmer on your cheeks, nose, cupids bow and forehead (all the places where you SHOULD be highlighting, LOL). The row of colours can also be used separately. I love to use the 3rd and 4th colour as a brow bone highlight, and even one colour alone is just STUNNING! I love to pull this highlighter out in the Spring/Summer months, as it gives a really sun kissed, bronze glow to your skin!! Totally worth it! The packaging is very sleek, with the standard white print on black that many other cosmetics companies use.
Only down side, is the price! 😦 I think it is definitely worth it because I’ve had this for almost 2 years now, and it’s STILL going strong, as I dont use it all year round, only in the warmer months. It’s definitely a SPLURGE item! So when you feeling spendy, or you got that bonus at work, then GIRRRRLLLL- PICK THIS UP!
RETAIL PRICE: R715.00
RATING (QUALITY): 4.5/5
Now this product I have a love hate relationship with, but mostly, I love! This is the BB Creamy Concealer Kit! This is great for the under eye, as it is a heavy duty concealer and provides INCREDIBLE coverage! Your under eye dark spots will disappear COMPLETELY when using this baby!! Yaaaassss!!! My shade in this is Golden. One shade brighter then my BB foundation colour which is Warm Almond. On the left is the concealer, and on the right is the pressed powder to set the concealer. Two down sides though, if you do not set this concealer WELL, and i mean WELLLLLL, it will CREASE!!! You will end up looking like Granny Jackie from down the street by the end of the day!! I feel this is a disappointment considering the price of this product. That leads me to my second disappointment, THE PRICE!!!! *shock*** Try to stay in your seat for this one. It retails for:
RETAIL PRICE: R430.00 (for such a small product, this is disappointing)
RATING (QUALITY): 4/5
This purchase is completely up to you. I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing it again, because I do think that there are much cheaper concelaers that do a better job. Don’t count this out though. FOR A HEAVY DUTY CONCEALER, THE QUALITY IS GREAT!
THIS BABY!!!!! OMMMMMGGGGG this is the STAR of the show! Until today, I haven’t come across a bronzing powder like this one! I use this mostly to contour, because I’m light skinned, it would be too dark to bronze my entire face with, but it is PERFECTION on contouring! The soft matte finish on this baby is INCREDIBLE! The powder itself is soooo finely milled that is feels like butter on the skin! No joke!!! The deep brown colour is the perfect shade. No grey undertones to make you look ashy, it’s just the perfect brown with red/brown/orang undertones, but not too much of either. It’s deep, yet soft, making it extremely easy to blend. It’s beautiful and I normally use it almost everyday in the warmer months to bring some definition to my face. Very pigmented, meaning a little will go a long LONG WAY!!! I’ve had mine for over 2 years now, and we still going strong!! 🙂
RETAIL PRICE: R525.00
RATING (QUALITY): 5/5
That is it for this Edition of ONE BRAND BEAUTY 3!!! Have you used any Bobbi Brown Products that you just LUUUURRVVV?? Let me know! I’d love to try something different from them!
Until the next one, See you next Wednesday!!! ❤
Live in Light and Love ❤
