Bobbi Brown Corrector Concealer Review

Miss my concealer posts? I thought I’d give you a tiny break in between posts as I was coming at you full force with all those concealers the past few weeks! But I’m back and I got a fresh round of brand new concealer reviews up my sleeve! If you haven’t found your holy grail concealer yet by the end of my round up I bet you will!

Bobbi Brown truly gets props when it comes to moisturizing concealers. I’m particularly enthralled with Bobbi Brown Corrector Concealer which offers that extra coverage that you may need if you’re sporting seriously dark circles. If your dark circles dominate your face and nothing you use has ever successfully covered them up, it’s time to pull out the big guns!

In this case your secret weapon would be Bobbi Brown Corrector Concealer. Where as Bobbi’s regular concealer works wonderfully well at concealing all your woes the corrector concealer contains extra pigmented coverage for seriously hiding EVERYTHING, and I do mean everything.

This is the party hard only slept an hour and worked all week concealer. The formula is super duper extra moisturizing so those of us with terribly dry eyes can appreciate how emollient and wonderfully easy to blend this is. Although it does crease a little bit with proper prepping and extra care when applying you should be a ok. Coverage lasts at least eight hours straight as it’s waterproof, sweatproof, and end of the world nuclear bomb proof obviously Bobbi wasn’t messing around when she created this one.

Although the pot is small and $22 USD in price, it’ll be the best money you spent in a long time as a little goes a long way and your eyes will thank you for the extra coverage and ability to hide bags, lines, shadows, circles, and any other problem you’re sporting. I’m thinking they should rename it to Indstrustrial Strength Concealer.

Honestly, this has taken the place of my beloved Benefit Boi-ing because the formula is just right for creating flawless coverage while hiding many of my under eye woes. Even on days that I’m not sporting dark circles I still reach for this to create a perfect canvas under my eyes.

I can’t begin to recommend this enough! Well worth your hard cash and works as promises! Holy grail material this be!

You’ll have to pry this pot out of the Muse’s cold dead hands one day!

Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow and Metallic Lip Color Review

metalliceyeshadow mainnewmetalliclipcolor main

I never realized how many products Bobbi Brown releases. Bobbi Brown is quite like MAC with it’s variety and frequency of new and exciting products.

Picture+009

In the past few months I’ve seen a number of different collections released from Bobbi Brown one of which happens to be the new Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow and Bobbi Brown Metallic Lip Color. They just recently introduced the Mauve Collection and now new Metallic shadows and lippes! Cool! The Muse be happy!

Picture+010

I got the chance to try out some of the Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow selections when I was testing out the Bronzed Pink Collection and I enjoyed them immensely! I was excited to see the line extended to include new shades for Fall!

Picture+014

I recently got to test out a few new colors with the Metallic Eye Shadow selections. I fell in love with these shadows last Fall when I purchased the Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow Palettes. I loved those palettes with a passion and I wish they’d introduced something similiar this year however they have come out with a TON of colors to choose from so the variety is definately more appealing and instead of having to stick to a few palettes colors you can now have a slew of colors to choose from! With eighteen shades to choose from ranging from bold to soft there is definately something for everyone available.

Picture+022

Picture+021

The colors I played around with this time around were Lavender, Cognac, and Champagne Quartz. The shadows are heavily pigmented with a very fine bit of shimmer. The texture and formula is that of a thick almost creamy powder. It glides pretty effortlessly onto your lid and blends like a dream. The finish is unmistakably metallic which gives your eye a very soft, unique look.

I’m partial to the Lavender as it was a perfect soft lily shade that brightened up my eye while creating just the right amount of pop! Definately Summer and Spring friendly! I paired up Champagne Quartz with Cognac (without getting loaded mind you!) and came out with a rather nice, natural, neutral look that had a teeny tiny bit of edge.

The shadows are definately an indulgence at $20 USD but they are actually bigger in size at 2.8g compared to a MAC shadow which is 1.5g. This was kindly pointed out to me by a reader and I’m realizing now that the Bobbi Brown shadow is actually the better bargain of the two.

Since Metallic are ruling some of the Fall Season you might want to head over to Bobbi Brown’s site and have a click through the numerous shades!

I’m wanting to try some of these shadows:

Mint
Golden Peach
Gold Dust (Swoon!)
Navajo

How about you?

Of course we couldn’t have Metallic Eye Shadow without including some sort of lippie to go along with the collection!

In comes Bobbi Brown Metallic Lip Color to make your eyes and lips a perfect match of wow!

Bobbi Brown Metallic Lip Color have a tiny hint of shimmer with a soft, moisturizing formula that’s sure to please. I was frightened of Metallic Lip Color as I was thinking the finish would be quite gaudy and strange however I’m happy to report that it looks quite gorgeous on. The formula is wonderfully moisturizing so a bit of gloss after is completely optional as the lipstick has plenty of it’s own shine without! The lip color isn’t deeply pigmented but more of a simple, sheer, lovely wash of color. I tried this out in Pretty in Pink which is a soft peachy, pink shade that went great with my Champagne Quartz and Cognac look!

You’ll have plenty of color selection available with eighteen shades to choose from! Click here to view the shades. Berry is calling my name! Pretties!

All in all the Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow and Metallic Lip Color definately has a little something for everyone to enjoy and is truly fitting for the upcoming Fall season!

Tried Bobbi Brown’s Metallic Eye Shadow?

How about the lip color?

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Review

For today’s concealer post I’ll be spotlighting Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer!

Picture+079

Although I had a little trouble with Bobbi Brown’s Concealer Palette I must say that I had no such woes with Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer. I have this in the lightest shade which is Porcelain. The color sports both beige, pink, and yellow tones which are extremely flattering to my medium-fair skin and do a superior job of covering up dark circles, fine lines, and extra baggage.

Picture+080

Picture+083

The formula is extremely emollient and moisturizing so much so that you may find it a bit too thick for your liking however using a concealer brush for application helps a whole lot. I really loved how wonderfully moisturizing the formula was and I think it’s completely suitable and an absolute god sent for anyone that’s 30 or over. The formula sports some key benefits such as being extremely creamy, thick, and pigmented. The thickness of the product accounts for it’s moisturizing benefits and although at first it may be a tad bit difficult to blend once heated you should have no problem with application.

Picture+081

Picture+082

Picture+084

The concealer is very long wearing and waterproof. I had no problem with creasing or caking and the product just looked simply flawless on and successfully made my eyes look younger and refreshed. This comes in 12 shades so you’re sure to find a match for your tone.

At $22 USD the price tag isn’t too bad either in my opinion for the quality of the product and the very long wear you can get out of it however you might worry about the size. The compact is tiny however since you only need a very tiny bit to cover up your problem areas you can easily get a year out of a single compact or more.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer has successfully created a good, solid concealer that delivers!

The Muse likes this one.

Alot.

Muse Approval for purchase on this one!

Another Woodbury Haul Featuring Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Peony

Picture+244

Before I fell in love with Bobbi Brown there was a limited edition shimmer brick released called Peony.

Now I’ve lemmed Peony for a while in particular the lemming got strong when my good friend Iris was staying in New York and had gone to Woodbury and scored Peony for herself. I remember soon after her trip I headed up to the CCO but I think Iris might have purchased all the Peony for herself, you never know she’s as obssessed with makeup as I am and it’s a logical conclusion. I only ever seen the one compact she got but what’s she not telling us right? I bet she has a few of ‘em stocked in a makeup cabinet just waiting to be used! Dontcha Iris? Tell us!

Anyway. I had seen some pics of Peony and it was honestly the darkest most vibrant shade I’ve seen released in a shimmer brick. It was a deep pink rosy color that looked simply divine and the Muse had to have it for her very self.

Sadly, after much begging and pleading on MUA I was unable to get anyone to swap it away (damn people are always so hard to convince on MUA aren’t they? Why put it up for swap if you don’t want to part with the bloody thing!).

I soon after turned to E-bay but I suddenly grew a consious when it comes to cosmetics and I was counting my pennies and realized hells I don’t want to pay that much when I know the CCO had it for heaps and heaps less!

Noooooooooo!

I pushed Peony to the furtherest corner of my mind and I tried hard not to begurdge my friend her lucky purchase (I’d never begrudge her anything as she’s a true darling but for the sake of my story I’ll add that in for drama purposes only hehe!).

About two weeks or more ago I wandered up to Woodbury and low and behold what I came across:

Picture+251

Picture+252

HA! Say it with me people…SCOREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I ended up snatching up one of many Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks in Peony for the sweet price of $26.75 USD! w00t!

It’s all that I hoped for! It’s one of the better Shimmer Bricks I’ve come across and I’m very eager to try it out with a bronzing powder as I think it’ll give my bronzing powder an extra pop and sizzle of both shimmer and a beautiful flush of color!

It’s probably one of the few shimmer bricks you can wear on bare skin and still look fabulous. Very pigmented and with just the right amount of shimmer this is a solid gold find for the Muse!

I also picked up a Bobbi Brown blush in Apricot while I was there for $14 USD and it’s simply a stunning shade. I have a funny feeling this will be making a guest starring appearance on my next Beauty Addictions list!

Dontcha love scoring an awesome steal?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

It’s that special time of the year again kids!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Wahoo!

That means you can head into your local Nordies starting July 18th to nab yourself some seriously awesome, unique beauty finds!

Over 100 brands are participating this year including MAC, NARS, Juicy Couture, Dior, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Philosophy, and many more!

These brands all offer up some Nordstrom Exclusive beauty finds that won’t be available elsewhere so it’s a perfect time to nab yourself a unique beauty find and some are even a Steal and a Deal!

Here’s some items that caught my eye that I might be indulging in this Thursday (you could have begun pre-booking these items as early as June 23rd but I normally like to wander into Nordies and see them for myself on the date of release!):

Bobbi Brown Cocoa Mauve Collection

A really fab collection of awesome Bobbi Brown finds can be found within the Cocoa Mauve Collection that is exclusive to Nordstrom. This kit is $65 USD and comes with a Travel Case, Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Cocoa Mauve Ink, Creamy Lip Color in Berry Mauve, Metallic Eye Shadow in Iced Mauve, and Blush in Sand Pink.

The total cost is a considerable discount from what you’d pay by purchasing each item separately as Bobbi Brown is far from inexpensive!

As you can see below the model is sporting the entire look and looking very posh! I particularly like this collection as the look created is very similar to what you can get using the Bobbi Brown Mauve Face palette I recently review. At $55 USD it’s a bit pricey for the palette so this is rather a nice deal at $65 USD where you get quite a good deal more to do a complete look including a gel liner!

 5651414

This one is on my wish list!

Dior has released a special limited edition palette for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which is entitled Dior Gaucho. I’ve VERY tempted by this but I have so many Dior palettes in my beauty arsenal collecting dust it would be a shame to indulge my inner demon of need. However, I am tempted. The colors are simply yummie for the upcoming Fall and at $55 USD the price is not bad at all!

If you’re wanting the palette I’d highly recommend doing your ordering from Nordstrom as you can get a free deluxe sample of Dior Black Out Mascara with your $50 purchase!

Now here’s one we have all been waiting on! Nordstrom’s Exclusive MAC Collection entitled Color Forms! Don’t lie to your Muse and say you aren’t excited about this collection because I’ll call your bluff! Ok, ok maybe it’s not THAT exciting! I’m actually kinda sorta excited about it. I’m very interested in the eye palettes as they are a design we haven’t yet seen from MAC and I’m intrigued by the lipstick as well! And I do so admit that the piggies get me hyper enough to warrant the use of a paper bag to catch back my breath after have a mild case of hyperventilation. It’s definately unique and I’m positive I’ll score a few items from this release!

mac+colour+forumns

As always this is a great time to nab some killer deals on brushes! I’ve always raved about how fab the brush sets are and now is a good time as any to nab some fine brushes at 75% off the original prices. Yes, some people do rant that the mini size aren’t as great as the full size but the Muse says don’t listen! The smaller size is just as good as the full size plus it’ll only cost you about $10 USD per a brush in these kits! That’s a sweet steal and a deal in my opinion!

Spoiler:

The Muse says don’t feel too special when you pick up MAC Colour Forms for yourself. Although it’s advertised as a Nordstrom Exclusive it does make its way across the board and ends up in Singapore, Japan, and other locations outside of the US so definately don’t buy into the “exclusive” keyword with this collection.

I spy with my little eye a giant bottle of Philosophy Purity! My all time favorite size of Philosophy Purity is making it’s way to Nordstrom!

This little guy (I use the term little loosely) was only every available from QVC and sadly for the longest time it’s been MIA but now Nordstrom has gone and slapped an exclusive on it, jacked up the price by $10 USD or so dollars, and has made the Muse a happy Muse! I love this size. I go through gallons of this stuff anyway so why not grab the 32oz size! Hey, the economy isn’t doing so well right now why not indulge in a larger size cleanser right?

Philosophy Purity: The Massive Size
 5454289

Wish list anyone?

Bare Escentuals never fails to make me gasp in absolute horror lately at it’s jacked up prices. But hey it’s the brand that I love to hate (price wise only of course). I love BE like I would a younger sibling, I like to talk down to it but that doesn’t mean I don’t care very deeply for it! Bare Escentuals In Fashion Nordstrom Exclusive is by far the most overpriced set I’ve seen to date from BE at $75 USD. I’m truly shocked. The price tag makes me cry out in pain however it doesn’t stop me from saying “ohhhhh look at the pretty colors” as drool drips from my mouth! The set looks quite breathtaking! This is an 8 piece set that includes Radiance All Over Face Color, Eye Shadow in Bahamas, Liner Shadow in Caviar, Blush in Escape, Lipcolor in Bavarian Cream, a Flawless Radiance Brush, Double Ended Precious Eye Brush, and a gorgeous clutch bag to store it all in!

Bare Escentuals In Fashion 8 Piece Set

Got $10 bucks? Nab a cool steal with the Evian Facial Water Spray Set! Get 1 Full Size Evian Facial Water Spray and a second mini travel size one for $10 USD!

Evian Facial Water Spray Set
 5658497

The Muse likes the price! Definately on the wish list!

All in all I see some really great buys from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and plenty of ways to get more for less! I’ll be indulging this Thursday when all of these items hit stores (do check with your counter as they may already be available)!

Click on over and have a look at items that I didn’t mention in my post available during the sale!
