Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder in Santa Barbara

Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder Santa Barbara

Lookie what my friend bought for me for my bday when we were at the local CCO! It’s the Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder in Santa Barbara.

I was checking these out and could not stop swatching and staring at this particular shade. Something about it was just so darn beautiful and perfect looking. I don’t own any of the other shades which include Telluride (mauve with shimmer), Antigua (light pink bronze), Aruba (light golden bronze), Bali Brown  (golden bronze) and Maui (pink coral bronze).

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Rose Gold and Black Plum

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow Rose Gold and Black Plum

Remember how I said I was recently at the nearest CCO picking up some MAC Lipstick shades that I’ll never wear? Well while I was there I also picked up Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Rose Gold and Black Plum and these I think I will wear.

These shadows are my favorite ones by the brand because they’re so incredibly soft and crazy pigmented. They feel like little squares of velvet! And while they are called “Shimmer Wash” they aren’t super glittery or fall-out prone. Ok yes, there can be some fall-out but not like with a lot of more shimmery or glittery shadows.

When I was last at my closest CCO (Cosmetics Company Outlet – in Napa) I decided on two eye shadows I thought I needed: Metallic Eye Shadow in Mint and Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Gunmetal.

Bobbi Brown Lip Products Kind of Rock and I Have Swatches to Prove It!

Bobbi Brown Lip Products

I am becoming something I never thought I would be: a Bobbi Brown fan. Do people who like heavy metal music and zombie movies become Bobbi Brown fans? Apparently yes.

No really, I always considered Bobbi Brown makeup to be nice, but you know, meant for super conservative makeup wearers or those over age 40. Um, then I realized I AM age 40. But honestly, just because something is marketed to be more “natural” or for “older” women (I REFUSE to say I am “older” by the way, considering I still think of myself as being 22) doesn’t mean it’s not great for people of all ages. Look past the marketing and all that stuff, and focus on the actual product inside.

I was recently at the nearest Cosmetics Company Outlet (CCO) in Napa and there was a slew of Bobbi Brown items. Nothing much else interested me there so I was playing around with some of her items and was super impressed with the payoff and shades. So what the hell, I bought some!

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss Swatches, Photos & Review

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss

Bobbi Brown is a brand I am just recently becoming familiar with. I always associated them with being a boring brand for older women with blah colors. But I’m finding out that’s really not the case!

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss is a line of super shimmery lip glosses that come in thirteen colors. Many of them available online only.

These glosses are vitamin enriched with C and E, and have antioxidant protection in them. They are very glossy, shimmery and moisturizing. They are lacking in one key element for me though…Pigmentation!
