Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color - The Nudes: Review & Swatches

Bobbi-Brown-Creamy-Matte-lipsticks

Choosing a nude lipstick is a bit like shopping for jeans: it’s tricky to find the perfect tone to suit your skin - especially if you’re not a fan of mannequin (aka death-warmed-up) lips - and what works on a friend may not work for you. It’s the kind of thing I go on a mission to find, get overwhelmed and leave the shop empty handed… I did precisely this in Space NK recently, hours before Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Colors landed on my desk. I may have audibly gasped: four deeply pigmented lipsticks in great nude tones, which are part of the new Smokey Nudes Collection (full review here).

The finish of these is completely matte, so they work best on well prepped, smooth moisturised lips. They are dense, creamy and don’t feel like a typical matte finish, probably because they don’t set on the lips like many matte formulas do. Most importantly, they feel comfortable on and don’t dry out my lips, yet still have great lasting power. Matte + moisturising = win:win.

I’ve included a second set of close up swatches to give you a more accurate look at the texture and because the colours were more true (better light). I used one sweep of colour for each and as you can see the finish is quite opaque, meaning that these are likely to look similar on most people’s lips, whereas a more sheer formula looks different on everyone. I totally love all four shades, but have been wearing Warm Nude and Pink Nude the most. I’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of Nude; Soft Nude may be a touch too warm for me. Official description in quotes below, followed by my interpretation.

  • Pink Nude: ‘light heather pink’ - surprisingly lip-like pink, more natural than I expected
  • Nude: ‘nude rose’ - a deep rose-brown
  • Warm Nude: ‘nude peach’ - peachy rose beige
  • Soft Nude: ‘light nude brown’ - warm brown with reddish undertones

If you like well pigmented lipsticks and dislike your hair sticking to glossy lips on windy days, then this could be the one for you. While a slightly sheer formula will always be my preference, I love these for long wear or an evening out when I don’t want to worry about touching up my lipstick all the time. The finish is versatile and you can achieve different looks by dabbing lightly over balm, wearing a single layer or applying intensely - I like to apply mine over lip balm or add a layer of squeezy balm on top. A little dab of gloss pressed onto the centre of the lower lip with a finger adds a subtle sheen and a sense of dimension.

Of course these four new tones complement the Smokey Nudes eye palette like a match made in heaven… I’m wearing Warm Nude lipstick with the eye shadows in this post. As a general rule, I dislike a totally matte make-up look (unless you’re 21 with porcelain smooth skin), so combine with a glowy base or balance out with a cream blusher or a little cheekbone highlight.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color, £19.50

I’ve just had one of those moments where I look back on a blog post and think ‘how the heck do i have so much to say about a lipstick?’ (usually after I’ve edited out a few paras)… and imagine my friends’ eyes glazing over were I to go into so much detail in person. I guess I try to think what I’d want to know about a product I hadn’t tried before deciding if it was for me - and then write it all down. I hope it helps some of you and if you’ve reached this far, thank you so much for reading!

Happy weekend everyone! x

Bobbi Brown Smokey Nudes Collection

Bobbi-Brown-Smokey-Nudes-Collection-AW-2014 

Smokey Nudes pretty much sums up my taste in make-up - leaning towards the more subtle nudes for everyday and smoked up for evening. Actually I’d quite happily wear a smokey eye daily if I had the time, but alas that’s not an option. Bobbi Brown’s Smokey Nudes Collection had me swooning at first glimpse and after indulging in each of the products for a while, I’m happy to report that the products perform as beautifully as they look. The queen of the collection is the Smokey Nudes Eye Palette, paired with a limited edition Sandstone Shimmer Brick, 4 Creamy Matte Lip Colors, Smokey Eye Kajal Liner and Mascara.

Smokey Nudes Eye Palette

 IMG_5923

This two tier palette is cleverly compact as the lower level slides out when in use and tucks away when you’re done, making it similar in size to the Shimmer Brick. The mix of creamy, well pigmented mattes and metallics come in a range of warm and cool tones: Watercolour Pink, Cream, Nude, Naked, Smokey Brown, Woodrose, Smoked and Silver.

SWATCHES

Both the finger and arm swatches are a single swipe of colour and the pigmentation and payoff are pretty much perfect for me, with minimal fallout. The two sparkle shades (centre swatches on my arm) are the least pigmented as they are designed to be pressed over colour to add sparkle.

Sandstone Shimmer Brick

While I’m not the biggest Shimmer Brick fan, Sandstone does have pretty tones with more shimmer than glitter - and works well as a highlight. Avoid fallout when sweeping the colours together by patting the palette with the side or tip of your brush and swirling colour across tops of cheekbones. The copper and bronze Autumnal shades also work well on the eyes, so don’t restrict this to your face! One of my favourite colour combinations for eyes is bronze and grey - and I’ve enjoyed combining both the Shimmer Brick and eyeshadow palette with metallic grey Storm Eye Kajal Liner and lashings of instant-bold-lashes via Smokey Eye Mascara.

In the pic above, I’m wearing the eye shadows, liner, mascara and lipstick in Warm Nude. I’m going to save the creamy matte lipsticks for a separate post tomorrow or this will go on forever - and they’re so lovely they deserve an ode of their own. If you want a sneak peek, you can see them on my Instagram

Bobbi Brown Smokey Nudes Collection is available now at John Lewis or Selfridges

Anyone with me in my love of smokey nude tones?

A Dry Spray to Bouffe up your hair

Bouffe-Dry-Hair-Spray-Volumiser

Bouffe Dry Spray adds volume and texture to hair in need of a little oomph. Spritzed into roots, it gives lift and literally ‘bouffes’ hair up, helping avoid that flat, pancake look that does no-one any favours. I prefer to use it on the underneath sections of my hair as I’m not blessed with the glossiest of manes and like to retain what little shine I have. It’s available in different colours, but none were quite right for my hair, so I opted for the clear ‘all hair colours’ version and am happy that I did. I like that it’s invisible in my hair and can imagine that the amount I use could end up getting a bit messy if it were coloured. Anyone hoping to postpone getting their roots done may prefer the coloured option! The volume this offers lasts reasonably well for everyday use, but for a special occasion, I think it works best in tandem with the matching fixing spray.

Bouffe-Dry-Spray

Sorry that I didn’t get a chance to take before and after pics, but the texture and lift in Nicole’s hair above is (coincidentally) a good illustration of the effect that the dry spray gives - slightly lived in, semi-matte volume. Available from light blonde and silver through to black, it also acts as a dry shampoo, without feeling too chalky or weighing hair down. Have you tried this type of product in your hair?

Bouffe Dry Spray £5.99

Zoeva Make-up & Brushes

Zoeva-makeup brushes

I’ve been meaning to get it on with Zoeva brushes for months - and now that we’ve met, I know we’ll be seeing a whole lot more of eachother. If you’re not familiar with the brand, Zoeva is a rare breed of quality make-up brushes at affordable prices - and has recently extended its line into make-up. I’ve only tried a few things so far, but it’s always a good sign when something moves straight into your everyday essentials.

Zoeva-103-Defined-Buffer-Brush,231-Luxe-Petite-Crease-Brush,330-Lip-Contour-Brush,Female-Attraction-Eyeliner,Floral-Crown-Luxe-Cream-Lipstick Zoeva-103-Defined-Buffer-Brush,231-Luxe-Petite-Crease-Brush,330-Lip-Contour-BrushZoeva-teal-blue-Female-Attraction-Eyeliner,Floral-Crown-Pink-Luxe-Cream-Lipstick-swatches  

Let’s start with the brushes: think strokably soft, nicely cut, with a luxe look about them.

DEFINED BUFFER 103 is an angled, flat topped foundation brush which fits well into the face’s contours and is great for sweeping on colour quickly and easily. Impossible not to compare this to my much loved Real Techniques Buffing Brush; this one has similar density and is slightly larger with flat rather than curved edges. They have the same function and give equally good results, so you don’t really need both, though I find this one can give a slightly more sheer finish and faster results, while the rounded edges of Real Techniques leave less room for missed bits.

Best for: quick, even foundation application

LUXE PETITE CREASE 231 is designed for applying eye shadow in the crease of the eye, but my favourite way to use it is for blending shadow or liner along the lash line. I’ve been hunting for over a year for the perfect brush to do this with - and think I’ve finally found it. Others I’ve tried have either been too fluffy so that they over blend the product, or too hard so they move it along rather than gently smudging. This one falls somewhere in the middle - and softens liner for a slightly smokey look without wiping it away or spreading it too far - and works well with both powder and cream shadow.

Best for: smoking out eyeliner

LIP CONTOUR 330 is softer and fluffier than any other lip brush I’ve tried. For this reason I couldn’t resist trying it for concealing small areas like the corner of eyes or edges of nose, where it’s perfect both for application and blending out. It does work on the lips too, but best saved for a more natural lip or stain effect rather than a diva red lip, which requires sharp edges for more precision.

Best for: colour correction and concealing dark circles

ZOEVA MAKE-UP These two items are highly pigmented with intense colour payoff - as you can see in the swatches. I tried Luxe Cream Lipstick in Floral Crown and Graphic Eyes+ longwear waterproof eye liner in Female Attraction. The liner - a dramatic deep teal - can be blended out before it sets and gives exceptional wear time. The colours were a little intense for a natural tone lover like me, but I’ve no qualms with the formula and am especially impressed with the liner. Special nod to the lipstick packaging in weighty metallic with that satisfying magnetic clunk as it closes. It’s the little things!

Zoeva is available here.

My stand out from this little group is definitely the Luxe Petite Crease Brush 231, a new daily staple. So which brushes do I need to try next?! (Did someone say Rose Gold?)

Regenerate Enamel Science Toothpaste & Boosting Serum

Regenerate-toothpaste serum

A new toothpaste and serum system claim to be the first product that can actually regenerate tooth enamel - by 82% in three days - leading to smoother, stronger, whiter teeth.

Regenerate Enamel Science Advanced Toothpaste contains calcium silicate and sodium phosphate to help re-build a new layer of white enamel on teeth. Inspired by bone repair technology and developed after 9 years of research - in collaboration with dental experts from International Oral Health Research Centres - the science behind it all will be published in the Journal of Dentistry.

“…when enamel – the outermost protective layer of our teeth – is lost, our body cannot regenerate it. This product is the world’s first system able to reverse the early, invisible stages of this erosion process and regenerate enamel with exactly the same mineral tooth enamel is made of.”

The Boosting Serum (sold separately) is designed for use in conjunction with the toothpaste and claims to increase effectiveness by 43%.  This involves mixing a gel and activator in custom-fit mouth trays and using for 3 minutes x 3 consecutive days each month to sustain results.

Regenerate-toothpaste serum-system

Regenerate-teeth-mould

I’ve been using the toothpaste on its own twice a day for one month and noticed a slight whitening (it also contains fine glitter sparkle, which I’m not so fussed on and am careful to rinse off). Besides that it’s pleasant to use, tastes minty like regular toothpaste and leaves my teeth looking and feeling clean. After one month I also used the Boosting Serum system and noticed that my teeth appeared to whiten a little more over the 3 days (while some whitening is a bonus effect, this isn’t primarily a whitening product). Not the most pleasant or glamorous product I’ve ever tested, but at least it only has to be left on for 3 minutes and I didn’t experience any discomfort or sensitivity during or after use.

I honestly can’t tell if my tooth enamel has been restored and think this is something only a dental professional could measure accurately, but if enamel loss or damage is a concern for you, this kit might be worth a go.

Aveda Shampure Composition Oil

Aveda-Shampure-Composition-oil

One of the loveliest things about blogging is discovering a gem of a product that slots into my routine and makes me wonder how I managed without it. Aveda Shampure Composition is one of those finds, so of course I must share it with you. Based on Aveda’s original elixir of 25 pureflower and plant essences, this beautifully fragranced oil is designed to nourish skin while calming the mind - and can be used for bath, body, nails and scalp.

This injects mini spa moments into my working day, usually at my desk during an afternoon slump or after a late night’s work. As a writer, I spend the majority of the day typing, so my neck and shoulders get achey and tense… a few drops of this warmed in my palms and massaged into the back of my neck and shoulders = instant soothing. Once I switch off and am settling down to relax for the evening, I’ll work some into my arms, hands and cuticles… the formula is rich, but not greasy and a little goes a long way. I’d describe the scent as fresh, yet soft - created by a team of aromatherapists, pharmacologists and perfumers - I find it therapeutic and totally moreish.

Aveda-Shampure-Composition-review Aveda-Shampure-CompositionAveda-Shampure-Composition-uses-review

The recycled glass bottle releases one drop at a time in quite quick succession; it’s not the yawny type where you have to wait around for a slow drip-drip. The inner box is wrapped in a super cute open-out guide to how the product can be used. I love that it even doubles up as a meditation and sleep aid - just massage into hands and inhale deeply.

This would make a beautiful gift for someone with a busy, stressful lifestyle - or anyone who could benefit from a little moment of calm in their day.

Renunail Strengthening Nail Polish + 3D Top Coat

Renunail-colour-nail-polish-Pomegranate-swatch DrLewinns-Renunail-colour-nail-polish-Pomegranate-red-swatches DrLewinns-Renunail-colour-polish 3D-Top-coat

The Strengthener: Dr Lewinn’s Renunail is probably my most raved about beauty product ever. It’s a nail strengthener that takes poorly nails from 0-60 in 1-2 weeks (full review here). For a long time I used it as a base coat, which works ok, but it’s a bit shiny for polish to adhere to. The answer: a colour formula with strengthening powers. This has been out for a while now and the colour range is quite small, but the formula and results have impressed me so far.

The Colour: I have the shade Pomegranate - I shared a pic on first use after chopping back my brittle nails two weeks ago here. Two weeks (& 3 applications) later, my nails are definitely longer and more importantly, stronger. This may have happened regardless, but the improvement has definitely been faster and more dramatic than I would normally experience. My nails feel harder, though not rock hard like they do with the original Renunail, but that’s ok - and obviously the full shebang of ingredients can’t be added to the colour without affecting its formula. I like the Pomegranate red a lot - fingers crossed that more shades will be released soon. Application is super smooth and although the brush is quite narrow, it fans out really nicely and is quick and easy to use. The colour seems to cling to the nail really well, unlike some which are all over the shop.

The Top Coat: I’ve paired Pomegrante with the Renunail 3D Top Coat, one of the most Seche Vite-like formulas I’ve tried (except this one is good for your nails!). It’s similarly thick, smoothing and glossy - liking this a lot. I was disappointed with the original Dr Lewinn’s top coat, so skip it if you’re choosing one and go for the 3D. How long a mani lasts is like how long is a piece of string. It’s such an individual thing, affected by so many factors - from your nail condition to application methods and what you do with your hands - but this duo was above average for me. It lasted 3-4 days whereas I’d normally only get 2-3… I’m very hard on nail polish and wash my hands a million times a day.

Which one’s for you: If your nails are very thin, brittle and peeling, I’d recommend starting with the original Renunail. I’ve pictured my (now slightly skanky) bottle next to the colour above to show how big it is - the 30ml bottle is literally double the size of most nail polishes. I’m telling you this because it isn’t cheap, but believe me, it’s worth every penny. It also comes in a Sensitive formula, which is smaller, cheaper and also good, but this one is more powerful and effective. You can read how it all works at drlewinns.co.uk

If your nails are in ok shape and you want to keep them that way, the colour formula and 3D top coat are a great way to maintain them. Certainly not essential but I really enjoy using them and am very happy with the results.

’Tis Scented Candles Season!

Aromatherapy-Associates-Inner-Strength-Candle-review-pics Aromatherapy-Associates-Inner-Strength-Candle

It’s usually freezing where I live (Belfast) and I love the heat, but also can’t bear to be too warm (I know!), so in the Summer months I rarely light a candle. They do add a little heat and create a warm, cosy atmosphere, which isn’t my thing when there’s not a breath of air in the room. So I’m declaring September the official start of Candle Season - and have had one lit daily… or usually ‘evening-ly’ to be precise - I always feel very decadent lighting candles during the day. Most candles aren’t cheap, so if you’re on the lookout for a new one, here’s my thoughts on four that I’ve been burning lately…

Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Candle //  I adore the bath oils and a couple of body products I’ve tried by this brand, so you can imagine my joy when I heard they’d gone and made my favourite scent into a candle. On first sight, I thought it looked a little Christmassy - the packaging and the little gold ‘A’ design reminded me of trees - it even smelt quite spicy. This didn’t bode well with me, but once lit - oh my, *all* the love for this beautiful blend of frankincense and cardamom. Smooth, warm and comforting - all the same qualities of the bath oil; while you’d get more therapeutic benefits from bathing in the oil, this is such a treat. Imagine both at the same time - swoon! 10% of proceeds will be donated to the charity, Defence Against Cancer.

 

Janjira-Therapy-Massage-Candle-reviewJanjira-Therapy-Massage-Candle-- 

Janjira Therapy Massage Candle // This has a delicate citrus-yet-smooth, spa-like scent - and you could just let it burn - but it’s designed to be used as a therapeutic treatment once extinguished. Made with soybean and coconut oils, it doesn’t burn as hot as regular candles, nor solidify when poured… you just burn it for a little while, blow out the candle and pour the melted oil into your palm. The warm oil can be used for massage or to treat cuticles and dry skin - a true multi-tasker. Great excuse to buy a gorgeous candle, right?

 

Rituals-Lotus-Secret-Scented-Candle-review Rituals-Lotus-Secret-Scented-Candle

Rituals Lotus Secret Candle // Well this candle is quite the charmer. Firstly it’s packaged in a box which opens just like the flower when you remove the lid (I tweeted a pic here) and secondly, it has a lovely quote etched into the glass, which isn’t visible until it’s lit. And in fact until it’s been burning for a little while. Add to that the lovely opaque white glass - and of course a great scent - and you’re onto a winner. Ingredients include calming Yi Yi Ren and White Lotus in a fresh, feel-good scent which works well for either day or evening.

 

FLamingo-Candles-Earl-Grey-Tea Cucumber-Candle-review FLamingo-Candles-Earl-Grey-Tea Cucumber-Candle-review-pics 

Flamingo Candles Earl Grey Tea & Cucumber // A favourite among bloggers, I was curious to find out what the fuss was about with Flamingo - and my biggest challenge was choosing a scent to start with - they have so many! A lot of them are quite sweet, which isn’t my thing, so I opted for a more refreshing Earl Grey Tea & Cucumber option. When I opened the jar it smelt sweeter than expected, but when lit, is a pleasant daytime scent.

 

My favourite of the four is definitely the Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Candle, a luxurious treat, which I would keep alight all day every day if I had money to burn! (geddit?) The likes of Flamingo seem a smidge synthetic in comparison, but still enjoyable, super cute and pretty affordable. If you’re feeling extremely decadent, one of my favourite candle brands, NEOM, has launched a stunning collaboration with Jenny Packham featuring 18 carat gold designs, which you can see here.

Do you like burning candles at this time of year - or do you wait until the dark nights set in?

Clarins Ombre Matte Eyeshadows & Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base

Clarins-Ombre-Matte-Eyeshadows Instant-Light-Perfecting-Eye-Base 

Meet Clarins Ombre Matte Eyeshadow, a new cream to powder formula and stand out release from ‘Ladylike’, Clarins’ Autumn 2014 collection. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the consistency, assuming from the packaging and name it would be quite like Chanel Illusion D’Ombre, but this is entirely different. It doesn’t have that bouncy feel in the jar and although creamy to the touch, has the appearance and texture of a powder once applied to skin. The rich, neutral colours appeal to me a lot; the texture is velvety, buttery - all the good stuff - with amazing payoff.

Clarins-Ombre-Matte-Eyeshadows-Nude-Beige,Rosewood, Sparkle-Grey

The three shades I’ve been trialling are:

  • 01 Nude Beige - a yellowy beige very close to my own skin tone - great as a base for any other eye product. Works well with a liquid liner flick or with added shimmer.
  • 04 Rosewood - a perfect taupe with a whisper of rose, the most buttery of the three - works well alone, for contour or as a smudgy liner alone upper and lower lash line
  • 05 Sparkle Grey - pewter shimmer (shimmery matte?) that begs to be smoked out. Looks good paired with Nude Beige.

Swatches

Clarins-Ombre-Matte-Eyeshadows-Nude-Beige,Rosewood, Sparkle-Grey-swatches Clarins-Ombre-Matte-Eyeshadows-Nude-Beige,Rosewood, Sparkle-Grey-swatches-swatched-Instant-Light-Perfecting-Eye-Base

Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base can be used as a base for colour or alone to even out any redness on the lids. The above swatch is quite intense and it appears lighter when sheered out - a tiny drop goes a very long way. While I like this on my mobile lid, I avoid using it around the crease as unlike light reflecting products, this is quite matte.

There’s a lot I love about these new releases, though I do have some issues with them too… My lids aren’t as smooth and taut as they once were and having hooded lids (geez what a pretty picture I’m painting) I have to be very careful about which formulas I use to avoid creasing and drawing attention to said ‘attributes’. Too much shimmer or too much matte are a no-no for me; somewhere in the middle tends to work best. For this reason Clarins Ombre Matte eyeshadow works best on my mobile lids, though my favourite way to wear them is as a slightly smudgy, lived in liner. Applied with a pencil brush, they can be blended out really nicely for a soft, flattering finish.

Those with younger, perfectly smooth, non-hooded or oily lids will have a lot more options with these (not gonna lie, I’m a little bit jealous), so I think it’s worth experimenting to see what works best for you.

On my Radar

clarins-true-radiance-foundation-2014 Clarins_instant_concealerClarins-2014-Fall-3_Dot_Liner_Brown

Other Clarins releases on my radar include:

True Radiance foundation £27 - medium coverage with a natural-looking, radiant finish. Skin Illusion foundation is one of my all-time favourites, so I’m always excited to try new Clarins base formulas.

Instant Concealer £21 - has received a lorra love from all directions and I can’t believe I haven’t tried it yet. This will be rectified asap (I’m on a concealer mission at the moment!).

The 3 Dot Eye Liner £20 - has been released in a limited edition brown shade as part of Clarins’ Ladylike collection. Not gonna lie there was a time I thought these were a gimmick, but brown is my liner shade of choice (much more forgiving and less harsh than black) and I’m loving the idea of this to enhance my lashline - I have invisilashes to match my invisibrows, so every little helps - and I’m thinking this could be the perfect partner for my Ombre Matte smudgy liner. I’ll report back!

Which Clarins products are you a fan of - and are any of these beauties calling your name?

Sore Skin Saviour: Human+Kind Family Remedy Cream

Human Kind-Family-Remedy-Cream,Hand-Foot-Elbow-Cream Human Kind-Family-Remedy-Cream

I mentioned Human Kind Family Remedy Cream in a recent post as a remedy for insect bites and cuts, but have come back to it as it’s since been declared a miracle cure in our home. If you suffer from any kind of skin irritation, you’ll know how all encompassing and completely distracting it can be (I’ve been there). Recently, my husband had an ever-increasing patch of psoriasis around his wrist, which had been torturous all Summer and seemed to be getting worse rather than better. After applying Family Remedy Cream to the area just twice he saw positive results - and a week later, the skin was completely clear.

I asked him to explain what had happened: “I had a rash, psoriasis I think. I put the cream on it and the rash went away a good bit.”

I prompted for a little more detail: “If I stop using the cream, it comes back a bit, but then goes away when I use it again.”

Men’s Grooming Bloggers of the world, you can all relax now… (He has expressed greater enthusiasm when unprompted, promise - and experienced great relief.)

You get the picture, right? This little tube of wonder works amazingly well to bring rapid relief to skin irritations. It contains 15 natural ingredients - including aloe vera, birch, marshmallow and calendula - and has been claimed to relieve the symptoms of:

- Eczema
- Psoriasis
- Acne prone skin
- Sunburn
- Insect bites and stings
- Itching
- Athlete's foot
- Razor burn
- Minor burns
- Cold and bed sores
- Wounds and cuts
- Brittle nails.

We will never be without it from now on! ps the hand cream, also pictured above is beaut too

Human+Kind Family Remedy Cream, £11.50
