WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

post #1 of 99
Thread Starter 
I am looking at eyeshadows on her website, and just wondered if any WOC really like any of her products--eyes, lips, blush, anything. I know she has good foundation, but I still wish she had more shades...

Thanks!

I actually don't like her foundation, but I LOVE her concealer!!!

I like her foundation stick (I use Honey) and some of her books. My mother keeps recommending Bobbi Brown to me but I find it a bit expensive.

What shade? Do you use the corrector, too?

I use the Creamy Concealer in "Chestnut". I don't use the Corrector because I don't need the extra coverage.

It's weird. I've always been told that I had red undertones, but her yellow-based concealer matches me to a T. Which is in stark contrast to her foundation which made me sooo DARK and RED (like Fashion Fair Foundation type red).

I don't purchase her other products because I don't want to spend that much $ on makeup -- especially mostly neutral colors that are sooooo dupeable. If I'm in that price range, then I'll just wait until I can get MUFE on sale from Sephora.

Bobbi Brown is a great line. I use all the products. Her blushes and shadows are wonderful as are the lip products. It's high quality and WOC would have no problem finding things to their liking. I'm NC45 at MAC and Warm Almond in Bobbi. Her blushes in Flame, Apricot and pot rouges in Raspberry and Chocolate Cherry rock! Do try her glosses as well.

My favorite BB products are her Stick Foundation and Shimmer Bricks. I also use some of her shadows and blush as well as some of the brushes.

I love the corrector and tinted moisturizer.

I love her shimmer bricks. I find the bisque corrector all wrong for me, and have ordered the peach one for dark circles (mine are purple-brown). The concealer is a bit cakey.

i love some of her pot rouges.. blushing rose is a beautiful nude, and pink raspberry is the perfect pink on me. I Wear these on my lips as well. NC42.

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

Hi I am new to this forum but have been lurking for a while and wow what a great site! So happy to have found it. Im a bit reluctant to be negative on my first post BUT I am quite disappointed with Bobbi Brown eyeshadows - I used rich brown recently for a brown smokey eye and it lasted for all of 2 hours (I used it on top of paint pot bare study as a primer). It could be my application of course! But I was disappointed as the original colour is fantastic. I am NC42 btw x

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

I love Bobbi Brown's makeup line. Great quality products.

My favorite products by her are the shimmerbricks, concealer, foundation (the foundation stick and Skin foundation), and her gel eyeliners.

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

Her gel liners are AMAZING, as are her glosses which are opaque so they actually show up on my pigmented lips(I love Petal, Rosy, and Honey) . Her Skin foundation is also my foundation of choice. Her blushers are also highly pigmented and super fine.

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

I'm reluctant to purchase from this brand, like MAC it's owned by Estee Lauder.

The prices kinda suck and I'm in bed, deep in the covers, with MAC.

But out of curiosity what's the equivalent in a foundation stick for someone NC50?

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

I *think* the almond shade is equivalent to NC50, but don't quote me on that. She needs to expand her shades...again. Her shades are not that great if you are not completely yellow, like me. I need either a more neutral foundation or a pure golden-olive...*sigh*

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

I use her Skin foundation <3 it!!
I also use BB:
-Corrector
-Creamy concealer kit
-Sheer loose powder
I probably won't switch from her when it comes to (foundation, corrector, concealer or powder). I'm done changing! I've gone from store brand (as a teen), to MAC, to MUFE (foundation/concealer) and now BB.

I've tried the shimmerbricks (and I really, really like them) however, I have a few MAC MSF and I can't justify spending more $$ on very similar products. But I might get the new SB in Nectar.

I also have 2 e/s and some shimmer tinted l/g from BB. The e/s go on so easy and smooth but they are bit pricey so I typically stick w/MAC for e/s. The same with her l/g they are nice but $20 is a bit too steep for me when I can get MAC for $14.50.

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

Huge fan of her Concealer in GOLDEN, and makeup stick in GOLDEN. I dont use a corrector just to avoid all the layering. Both go on super smooth and last ages (several months!). Also have her lipstick in PUTTY which I would have made staple but ive heard has been discontinued.

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

I just saw a few of her items at the CCO near me in Philly. I tried the Beach SPF 15 body spray/oil. It smelled just like the beach and suntan lotion. I almost bought it but thought maybe it would be too greasy? Anyone else tried her Beach products?

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

I really like how yellow the face base products are. I like the pressed powder, corrector, and concealer (for under eyes). The face touch up stick is decent, but I'd like for it to provide more coverage. I want to get the foundation stick and luminous moisturizing foundation, as they were very nice matches for me when I tried them on.

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

i have very dark under-eye circles and I'm an NW45 in MAC (I also use the NW45 Studio finish concealor which gets rid of most of the discoloration but not completely), which corrector would u suggest for my colouring? I was thinking maybe the Dark Peach one?

I wear NW45 and use the Very Deep Bisque. None of the "darks" are dark enough.

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

I really like Bobbi's Oil-Free Liquid Foundation, blushes, Shimmerbricks, and bronzers. I also have a few of her eye shadows (only 7) and I like them a lot. Good size, although expensive, but there are some great, unique and wearable shades in the line.

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

Today, I bought the new shimmer brick in Nectar, and it is absolutely beautiful. I love corals, and it goes so well with my skintone.

I also like her gel liners, very very smooth.

I use it alone as a concealer even though it says to use actual concealer over it. I think it would be too for me to use the corrector and the concealer at the same time. I love it as concealer though.

I love cleaning my face (and my brushes) with their Lathering Tube Soap. Makes your face feel so clean.

And I just got hip to their Lip Balm... AMAZING!!!

Re: WOC-What are your faves from Bobbi Brown?

I love BB correctors and concealers for under eyes. I've tried many other concealers for under eyes (including MAC and MUFE), BB ones work the best for me.
