The Bobbi Brown Experience

Hey guys!

Sorry it has been so LONG since my last post. To make up for this, I have decided to write you guys an EXTRA long post about my experience with Bobbi Brown! I have never tried Bobbi Brown products so I set up an appointment in Biloxi, MS with Mrs. Hollie Oliver who is the counter manager for Bobbi Brown cosmetics at Belk.  She gave me what is called a Pretty Powerful Makeup Lesson FOR FREE. The great part about Bobbi Brown is her mission:

“My mission is to help women look and feel their best.  With knowledge, the right products and a few easy steps, any woman can be her prettiest, most confident self.”

-Bobbi Brown

Hollie informed me that these sessions that you set up as a client are not called “makeovers” they are called lessons. There are many lessons that you can take, depending on the time that you have to give to learning about the products.

Lessons: 

  • Instant Pretty– 5 minutes
  • Smokey Eyes–20 minutes
  • Classic Eyes–20 minutes
  • Secret to Perfect Skin–20 minutes
  • Everything Brows–20 minutes
  • Pretty Powerful Makeup Lesson–45 minutes (signature, 10-step lesson)
  • Long-Wear Makeup–45 minutes
  • Bridal Beauty–45 minutes

The overall experience was just very refreshing because it was all about finding qualities about yourself that makes you beautiful. Bobbi believes that every woman is beautiful. The natural ingredients of the makeup make them so worth the money, and I loved all of the scents of the facial cleansers, foundations, and powders.  I left with some samples that I got to try. I bought the Hydrating Rich Cream Cleanser paired with the buffing grains. I’m telling you that this cleanser is just AMAZING. It washes and removes all of the makeup on my face leaving my skin feeling exfoliated and moisturized.  The scent just smells so fresh and clean. It almost gives off that lavender scent as well, so its a great product to use for your bedtime skin routine.  I recommend that everybody rush out to their Bobbi Brown counter and make an appointment.:

I have been trying the products for a couple of weeks now, and I wanted to get a couple of opinions from my friends.  PLUS they loved to be used as my “subjects” every now and then. 🙂

Here is my friend Ann Marie! We used the following Bobbi Brown products on her face:

  • BB cream in the shade Fair
  • Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in the shade Powder Pink
  • Face Powder in the shade Soft Sand

You can really tell that this small routine with Bobbi Brown products produced a warm and natural glow to Ann Marie’s face. Ann Marie loved the products and thought they gave her face a natural, beautiful look.  Her skin is very sensitive, and these products worked out great for her skin.

My next subject was Grace Claire! I did a quick YouTube video with her.  We wanted to implement Bobbi Brown into a regular makeup routine, so we DID! I hope you enjoy.

Grace had so much fun with this and was amazed by the feeling and the scents of all the Bobbi Brown products.

My personal favorites from Bobbi Brown products is the Natural Finish Foundation and the Hydrating Rich Cream Cleanser.

Do you use Bobbi Brown? What’s your favorite product? Let me know if you have any questions.

XOXO,

Ainsley
