More Bobbi Brown

Morning Everyone!!  I hope that you are all well and looking forward to the weekend?

Anyway I wanted to do this post about two Bobbi Brown products because as we all know I am Bobbi Brown mad.
First off I am going to start with a cleanser. I was kindly sent this to review and I have thrown everything at it, water proof mascara, a full face of make up... you name it.

I use this cleanser to take my make up off or a night cleanse. As it is part of the Hydrating range it is a little too rich for me to use in the morning. On the bottle Bobbi recommends using it as a wash off cleanser, however I use it almost like a cleansing cream. I massage a small amount over a damp face then use a muslin cloth to sweep away what ever make up or dirt is on my skin. It does a great job and I have removed full eye make up including water proof mascara without having to drag my skin and rub too hard. This is full of Avocado butter so if you have dry skin it would be wonderful as your main cleanser. After I had used this I hardly felt the need to use a moisturiser so it must feel amazing on skins that are at the dryer end of the scale. The cleanser it self smells great, just what you would expect from Bobbi. I fully recommend this and I am happily going to reach for this as my night cleanser of choice especially as the weather is getting nippy and the heating is on and drying out my skin.

Next up is my favourite lipstick...
Creamy Lip colour in Nectar  no4

I bought this Lipstick in Fenwicks Newcastle. I knew that Bobbi was the queen of the Nude palette  So I asked them if they could choose some make up that I could wear on my wedding day. I posted about the eye shadows and the liner in a previous post but wanted to rave about Bobbi a bit more.
Although the format is a Creamy base this Lipstick is quite sheer and very build able.  I have always stayed away from peachy tones however this lipstick is gorgeous. Nude but not in a foundation lip sort of way and not matte which I also hate. The shade finishes of a make up look so well and actually makes me feel polished. As it is creamy it is also very moisturising but well lasting. All boxes ticked so far. The question was will I wear it on my wedding day? The answer, yes if I have any left...I may have to buy a back up. I know without a shadow of a doubt next time I have some spare cash put aside for a make up spree the BB counter is where I am heading!
Trust me when I say that if you are constantly on the look out for a perfect Nude, and reading so many blogs I know this is a favourite... head to Bobbi Brown she won't disappoint you and neither will her MUA .
