Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Brow Gel Review
Bobbi Brown has been my top makeup brand for several years now, the one brand I can rely on for a flawless base, dazzling eyes, flattering cheeks and a perfect lip. A brand whose products outdo all others when it comes to quality, formula and longevity, they're a brand everyone needs in their beauty stash.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation Review
It was only recently I shared my love for the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector and Concealer (£28), still very much my go-to choices for colour correcting and brightening. The new Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Touch Up Brush (£26) is a fab little brush that makes applying and blending in correctors and concealers a breeze, and it can even be used for foundation too. A small tapered version of the Full Coverage Face Brush, it is a fairly dense brush and is great for those harder to reach areas such as under-eye, around your nose or mouth and great for targeted application. I have a couple of Bobbi Brown brushes and they are amazing; really great quality, extremely well made and oh so luxurious 

My holy grail foundation for many years, the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation (30ml, £31.50) is incredible. With a beautiful natural finish, it gives the effect of perfect skin without looking like you have a base on. It's light-weight, exceptionally easy to apply and blend (especially when teamed with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush) and has the best longevity I've ever come across in a base. Bobbi Brown have a vast range of shades when it comes to their base products, with a selection of both warm and cool tones, catering perfectly for those with yellow undertones like myself or those with a more pinky undertone to their skin. Add in the SPF15 and oil-free formula, you have a base that's great for normal to oily skin types with a buildable coverage that never looks cakey. My love for this base will never falter and it's a must-have in my base drawer. 

I'm always excited by great brow products and the new Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Brow Gel (£17) is a little pot of brow-envy goodness. Available in 8 shades, it is a great product for defining your brows. Whether you like the more natural subtle look or a bolder brow like me, the gel-wax formula is super easy to work with and boosts an impressive 24 hour hold. Now, I don't personally keep my makeup on for 24 hours, but the Long-Wear Brow Gel keeps my brows in place from morning to night without needing to touch up, or that dreaded smudging that you can find with some brow products. Team it with the new Bobbi Brown Dual-Ended Brow Definer Groomer Brush (£28) and you have a winning combo for perfect brows. The spoolie enables you to smooth and groom brows whilst the angled brush is perfect for applying product. 

If you're looking for a lipstick that's moisturising, has great colour pay-off and feels comfortable on the lip, you'll love the new Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Colour (£21). With 16 stunning shades covering subtle nudes to spring peaches, summer pinks and deep berries, there's a shade for any occasion, to match any personal taste. I've been trying out Rosebud and it's a perfect everyday warm rose that works so well with a neutral eye and a smidgen of blush. Ther nutrient-rich formula is lovely, utilising a blend of Avocado, Babassu and Jojoba Oils, which gives it a lovely moisturising aspect, ensuring your lips don't get dry throughout the day. There's also a lovely luminous shine that is so incredibly flattering, it's definitely made me add a few more shades from the range to my lust-list. 

Bobbi Brown is an incredible brand whose products really are worth the splurge. If you're curious about the range but not quite sure where to start, you can always get yourself booked in for an absolutely free makeup lesson on one of their counters.
