I don’t usually write about ‘hauls’. The word bugs me for some reason, but since many people use it, what the heck, if you can’t beat them, join them 🙂 I purchased 2 little goodies from Bobbi Brown recently. Firstly, I have to say I was sucked in by the white packaging instead of the usual black. Secondly, well, the 2 things I picked are pretty good. That’s the main reason I am sharing! I love them, and they are limited edition. Hence, this rushed post.
I bought the Extra Lip Tint in Bare Melon (RM113) and the Cheek Glow Palette (RM206) in Pearl/Pink Flush. I picked Bare Melon sight unseen, and I chose the Pink Flush Cheek Glow Palette because based on online swatches, it looks like something I don’t have. The Extra Lip Tint in Bare Melon is actually quite a bright coral. It is very moisturizing (it’s a tinted lip balm anyway) without being thick and sticky and it stays that way for quite some time. On my lips, it sometimes looks coral, sometimes more pink and sometimes even peachy.
The Cheek Glow Palette consists of a cream glow highlighter (Pearl) and a pot rouge (Pink Flush). I chose this in particular because of the highlighter. Pearl looks just like its namesake. On the skin, it looks very subtle and glowy but never oily or greasy. Pot Rouge is one of my favourite cream blushes so I know I won’t be disappointed. Pink Flush is a warm light pink which has more yellow than blue. That’s also the reason I love it. Most pinks look cool on me but this has just the right warmth against my skin tone and it looks very natural. Because the shade is quite light, it gives a youthful flush on the cheeks. After applying the pot rouge, I’d pat Pearl on the highest point of my cheeks for the slight bounce of light.
Here are the swatches on my bare arm. I don’t have the time to take a proper photo of me using the products just yet, but as usual, I will post it in the near future. The swatches below are done heavily so that they can be captured properly.
Let me tell you that I have been quite selective in makeup that I buy but I’m very happy with these. I know these were launched elsewhere last year, but in Malaysia, we just got them and they are selling out fast. Have you tried any? I haven’t been so excited about a purchase to warrant an emergency post, but I’m in love! Go have a look if you can.
