Bobbi Brown is one of the most underrated brands in the Philippines. The price intimidates most people, I suppose, but in my experience it delivers what you pay for. Each product does exactly what it is meant to do and some, even a little bit more! I don't want to play favorites but out of all the brands in my vanity, Bobbi Brown is one of the names I pick up the most. It's been consistently amazing since Day 1.
A lot of praise, I know, but it's from the very bottom of my heart. If you have a few gs to spare and want something that you will actually finish up, Bobbi Brown is a foolproof choice. :) Anyway! I actually want to talk about Bobbi's February release, which is called the Sparkle & Glow Collection.
Sparkle & Glow is designed to give the skin some much-needed lift and brightness. There's shimmer of course but it's very subtle and fine; just enough to bring light to the skin, but not too much that it looks tacky. I have one of the sparkle eyeshadows so I'll talk about that in a bit! In the meantime here's more information about the individual products in the collection.
Pricing: Extra Soothing Balm, P3,550 / Tinted Eye Brightener, P1,660 / Brightening Finishing Powder, P3,200 / High Shimmer Lip Gloss, P1,300 / Sparkle Eye Shadow, P1,600
I've talked about the Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadows briefly before. These are pigmented, super smooth eyeshadows that feature complex, twinkling sparkles peeking through the color. Nobody does sparkle like Bobbi Brown - swear! Black Chocolate (the shade I have) is a chocolate brown with silver and bronze shimmer. It looks great on its own but as with all Bobbi sparkle shadows it's even more stunning on top of a base color.
Here's a look I did with it! I blended it on top of a cream eyeshadow and I love love the results. It's a sultry chocolate smoky eye that's perfect for events! Looks complex but it's just one color blended out in a nice gradient.
So there you go. :) The Sparkle and Glow Collection is now available at Bobbi Brown counters in Rustan’s Makati (812-2507), Rustan’s Shangri-La (633-4636 loc 114) and Rockwell Essenses (822-9400).
