^It might very well be a waste of money, Bobbi Brown is super expensive

People always say the stick foundation never lasts on them, wears off after a few hours, doesn't give them suitable coverage, but to be honest I could not live without it.

Trust me when I say i've tried nearly every foundation under the sun. Creams, mineral, liquid, mousse, blah blah... from the high end to the cheap drug store brand none ever really impressed me or gave me a 'finished' look.

I went to the Bobbi Brown make up counter at my local mall, picked up one of the stick foundations in the shade alabaster (i'm like a vampire it's horrid). I am *so* in love with it. I've been using it for about 7-8 months. It's funny to describe the coverage. I don't really find that it leaves my skin very matte or dewy. It looks like i'm not even wearing foundation, yet completely evens out my skin tone and conceals minor blemishes.

I do have combination skin, more on the oily side due to our weather conditions i'm sure, ugh humidity... over all I just can't say enough about this foundation.


Now I haven't tried any of her other products (yet!) , but man... she's made me a happy girl so far.

Bobbi's corrector does nothing for me, i don't have huge dark area's under my eyes. I only bought it as a refreshment for my , light, under eye cirkels. But it's does nothing! no correcting the darkness, nothing.....very disaponted.

That is because you are not using it correctly If you only have slightly dark circles, then you only need concealer. You need to put a yellow-based concealer on top of the corrector because the corrector doesn't cover anything. It only cancels out the blue and purple, meaning the under eye area is still darker than the rest of your face The product itself is brilliant, but I can see why you'd be disappointed when someone clearly has given you the wrong information

I love love love the gel eyeliner.
I have it in black & use a thin paintbrush to apply cat's eye on my upper eyelid.
This has performed better than: MAC, L'Oreal HiP, Smashbox, Benefit, Urban Decay and a bunch of others.

i went to a bobbi brown counter the other day in need of something to fill in my eyebrows. because i have dark hair but sparse eyebrows, the lady at the counter suggested a light brown eyeshadow which i bought, except now i've got home and tried it a few times, it's coming out reddish and just not looking right. do you think if i go back and explain the situation they will be able to exchange it for a more suitable colour?

Bobbi Brown's lip balm is the best!! Doesn't leave an annoying shine, is waxy enough to stick around for hours and smells gorgeous AND subtle!!

Love Bobbi Brown lip-glosses!! Interested in trying Creamy Concealer cause of all the fuss.
I have the Oil Free Foundation which I like as the smell and shade are gorgeous, but I wouldn't wear it every day as its very thick.

What does anyone think of the No Smudge Mascara?

Yes, you should take it back and exchange it for the right item. How disappointing. This policy is stated on the Bobbi Brown website in the Customer Service section so there should not be a problem. We pay a lot for quality cosmetics and the companies want to have satisfied customers. Good luck.

I've been contemplating getting the gel eyeliner but after reading these reviews I think thats the first thing I may get after payday as I've been looking for a good gel liner for a while now!

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation has surpassed Armani LSF as my favorite foundation. It is lighter coverage, but it's just so unbelievably natural.
