The Bobbi Brown brand believes that a woman is most beautiful when she looks and feels like herself. She just needs the right tools. The makeup brand promotes a natural beauty look.
This was the first ever Bobbi Brown sample sale and I came with high expectations. Unfortunately it was not the hype I thought it would be. Majority of the items are in non popular colors. Although selection was a disappointment, pricing was very fair. Nothing is over $15! What is great about the sale is not only are their Bobbi Brown representatives, but makeup artists as well are on hand to answer question and recommend products.
Foundation ($15) is available for both oily and dry skin. There are more colors available in the moisturizing foundation. Highlighters and concealers are $12. Options include face highlighter, intensive skin serum concealer (available in warm almond, cool sand, and almond), third eye brighter, and bronzing powder. Face touch up sticks are $12 as well.
Face oils, eye makeup removers, recovery rescue sets, and cleansers are $10. There are face applicators for $3. The only brushes are the eyeshadow brush for $10. The coveted shimmer bricks are no where to be found but they have a brightening brick in Tawney. Other items include the retouching wand ($12), finishing illuminating powder, sheer loose powder, and perfume (beach).
Makeup is scarce. There were only 2 lipstick; Hot and Valencia Orange. One option in lip gloss (almost peach), mascara (black), and liquid eye liner (grey). There are no eyeshadow palettes just individuals. Nude Beach is a nice neutral cream shadow that can be used as a primer or by itself. Some colors in regular eyeshadow include golden amber, iced blue, and forest green. Gel liner colors include indigo ink, bronze shimmer ink, sapphire shimmer ink, and hunter ink. The sale does not have the brushes for the liners.
As of this afternoon the lipsticks and mascaras have been sold out. I was told there is back stock on items already out. If they aren't getting another shipment from Bobbi Brown maybe they will have to close the sale (a few days) earlier.
A surprise debut, Bumble and Bumble has joined this sample sale. hair product are lined up in the back of the space. Spray De Mode, Hair Dress's Oil-travel size, Thickening Mousse, and Don't Blow It are $5. Surf travel set, Quenching Masque, Hairdresser's Oil-full size, and City Swept are $10.
