“Retouching Powders instantly make your skin look better — yet they’re completely undetectable.”
– Bobbi Brown
Bobbi Brown…did not just claim…that this new product is magic! It’s such a bold claim. But, I believe in it! How could I not? Her under eye concealers did just that to me – magic! Seriously!
Can I be more joyful in reporting to you this new product from Bobbi Brown? As a super Bobbi Brown girl that I am, I love her products because Bobbi Brown’s pegs for makeup are more on natural, elegant, and sophisticated. They aim to make you look your best version of you, and not changing a thing or getting it overdone. I am just so in sync with her philosophy and her products!
As for finishing powders, I LOVE them with all my heart. When you have oily skin, first thing you should know is that you’re not supposed to blame it on your liquid foundation, or pressed foundation if they don’t control oil and make your skin like an oil mine. For me, that job goes to your primer that is worn before makeup, and the finishing powder worn after all makeup is applied, to “finish” and “set” the look. Two products that “sandwich” the foundation will definitely make all that difference.
I’ve tried so much loose powders out there. Some are just okay, some turn out too cakey, and some give out that whitish cast. I’ve found a few loves over time, and this one, sort of has been trying to win me over as of late :
Bobbi Brown’s New Skin Perfecting Retouching Powder is not just a finishing powder, it is a corrective finishing powder. It has shades that correct your skin concerns, depending on what needs to be addressed ( sallowness, dark spots, dullness, redness, and other imperfections ) It’s also very finely milled that it’s almost undetectable, like it just makes your makeup look flawless and not add up another layer. This product was developed with a sheer, light-transmitting base that illuminates and brightens the skin for one, and color-corrects as well. It also has oil control properties.
These are the available shades of the new Bobbi Brown Retouching Powders :
White – Brightens and illuminates alabaster to light skin
Pink – Counteracts sallow undertones in alabaster to medium skin tones
Yellow – Tones down redness in extra light to medium skin tones
Peach – Warms up light skin tones. Evens out tanned and medium to dark skin tones
Rose – Gives light to deep skin tone a healthy flush of color
Will these rival THE Make Up For Ever HD Microfinishing Powder? It seems like it will. Roadtest mode, is on! I’m checking out the yellow one, as I’ve always relied on yellow correctors. Let me tell you just one important sentence in the world of makeup : anything yellow brightens.
These flawless babies are to be available at your nearest Bobbi Brown counters come February 2012, and will retail for P2,100.00. I encourage you to check this out, try it at the counters, and see if this will be magic to you!
