Bobbi Brown Uber Pink Collection Be Pretty Antigua Illuminating Bronzing Powder

As a pale girl, the words tan and bronzer are simply not in my beauty vocabulary. I like being pale and in fact would rather be sold a product that will give me a Dita Von Teese paper white glow over a ‘healthy glow’ any day! However, when I was sent the information on the new Bobbi Brown Uber Pink collection and their Illuminating Bronzing Powders, which are clearly not at all bronze, I thought I’d give them a go.

I love Bobbi Brown, it’s a great brand for quality essentials and their foundation and concealers are some of my favourites. For my taste though, I often find many of their colour cosmetics too safe for me. The new Uber Pink collection is catching my eye though as they venture into brights.

The Illuminating Bronzing Powder, comes in two shades: Pink Peony and Antigua. This one is Antigua and believe it or not is actually the darkest of the two. In my book, this is definitely not a bronzer, yes it has the tiniest touch of bronze in the pigment but to me it’s definitely just a big blusher. As you can see it’s pink, the Pink Peony shade is more of a candy tone and has less metallic in it, but still it’s pink, not at all bronze. Bobbi Brown Uber Pink Collection Be Pretty Antigua Illuminating Bronzing Powder

I adore the imprinted words of Be Pretty, it’s such a cool touch to an otherwise classic product and adds a great fun twist to the product. The Pink Peony variety says Be Bold. This product was difficult to capture as a swatch as it really is a pretty, subtle effect, perfect if you want a natural glow. The shimmer in the powder adds the illuminating element and it stays really well. I’ve been opting for this when I want to make the rest of the make up dramatic, so as not to over do a look. It’s limited edition, so if you love it, grab it soon!Bobbi Brown Uber Pink Collection Be Pretty Antigua Illuminating Bronzing Powder

Review: Illamasqua Kiss Powder Blusher

As you are probably aware, I am a huge fan of the Illamasqua brand, so I was delighted to pick up this Blusher for only £10 in the sale at the Beak Street store. I had not yet tried a Illamasqua blush, so this was a great thing to pick up as I want to review more beauty products on here, but I’m a careful spender. I was also keen to try a new blush after sticking with the same one for so long, having seen lots of bloggers write about their blusher collections, I became intrigued, as it wouldn’t usually be a product that would excite me.

Kiss Blusher, is a perfect choice for everyday it’s a matt finish rose pink shade, with terracotta undertones. As with most Illamasqua products, this one is also highly pigmented meaning you only need the tiniest amount to do the job, which is great as it means it will last longer too. I was surprised to discover that this blusher also has a lovely cocoa butter scent which I was not expecting, but thoroughly enjoyed.

I apply the blusher with one of my Youngblood Contour Brushes and sweep gently onto the apples of my cheeks and the cheek bones, in my usual style. As mentioned before, this is highly pigmented so you need to be careful as it would be very easily overdone.

Here it in on me, with otherwise minimal make up, I love how to stands out subtly against my pale skin, it’s the traditional English Rose look that I like but with a quality product that I know will last throughout the day. I’m sorry I look a bit glum, this is the first time in a long time that I’ve taken a self portrait and the first time ever that I’ve not photoshopped it!

Which blushers do you rate? What should I try next? Do you love Illamasqua as much as I do?
