Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick Review

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation stick

Story time: I had a free sample of the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick a few years ago. I didn’t think much of it (though I was impressed with the generous sample size) and just kept it in my bag as a touch-up product. I found it too thick and cakey-looking, difficult to apply and the wear-time, I thought, was…

Shiseido UV Protective Liquid Foundation SPF 30 Review

Shiseido uv Protection Foundation

Shiseido is a brand I’ve had exactly zero experience with until now. I could write the things I know about them as a company on the back of a stamp – they do sunscreen, they are Japanese, they have classy packaging. That’s about the extent of my knowledge on Shiseido (hell, I can barely spell the word). So, I know they have…

jodie / 28th August 2014

After leaving University and securing myself a job, I thought I deserved a splurge on some nice, high-end foundation. I didn’t jump in head first; no, no, I was careful. I tried about 4 or 5 different brands before settling on this one. The One. Or so I thought at the time… I first tried it as a sample from…

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 | Review

jodie / 20th August 2014

I didn’t know much about the Bobbi Brown brand when I went to the counter in John Lewis for a little snoop around. I was really just killing time while waiting for a train, but ended up coming away with a powder foundation (which is lovely, by the way – I’ll review it soon) and a sample of the skin…
