Anytime I’m traveling abroad, I can’t resist shopping those brands which are not shipped to Italy or very difficult to find out here. Unluckily Bobbi Brown is among those and this is the reason why I’ve recently checked their beauty counter, tested and swatched some of their beautiful products and finally got home with three little treasures in my suitcase, which I’m sharing with you today. Probably you know them already really well and you have been using these products since years. (Lucky you!) For me they’re an absolute revelation! So I’m glad I’ve found two nice Bobbi Brown’s shops at Dubai Marina Mall and Dubai Mall last week. If you’re planning any trips to UAE, the good news is that you’ll literally get lost among the many fantastic beauty addresses the city boasts. Don’t worry, I’m posting something about the trip very soon.
So what’s in my Bobbi Brown‘s recent beauty haul?
First up a combo of nude lipstick and lip pencil and then a creamy eyeshadow in stick format. Having been much concentrated on reds and dark lipsticks all over winter, I felt like I was definitely missing more natural shades in my collection. To be honest, before opening this blog, I was not the kind to look for ‘my lips but better shades’ at all. I thought beige and natural colors looked very dull on the lips and had a preference for either pinks or almost red shades. But reading other people’s blogs and looking at the many pictures on Instagram, I’ve discovered how elegant and sophisticated nude lipsticks can be and thought I need to try something else too. Now thanks to the last purchases, there’s an injection of new colors and brands also on my Chicfirst.
