Ive heard/read good things about Bobbi Brown make up.
Does anyone use the product?
I liek the idea of the shimmer brick, but how do I know which one I need?? we havent got Bobbi Brown where I live, so probably would shop online.

I have quite abit of Bobbi Brown make up, but not the shimmer brick I'm afraid. I do have the rose blusher - the blusher isn't necessarily better than any other brand, but it's a colour that suits me. I really like the gel eyeliner as it's very long lasting. I also like the eye concealer/powder combo - very natural.

I'm currently in two minds about cream eyeshadows. I like the colours, but they don't last as long as I'd like.

I've had a make up lesson at one of their counters before. It was free and I learnt a lot about their products - although my eyebrows looked awful at the end of it!!

I've got the brightening finishing powder and it's lovely, really does make me look more awake and less knackered. Pricey but well worth the money IMO.

Also got the brightening lip gloss in Peche and that's nice too, very pretty colour, not overly shiny but does make my lips look fuller and I do think it has a general brightening effect on my face.

I have olive skin so colours will depend on your skin colouring but I use their eye concealer cream in Honey. The shimmer brick in Beach I use as eye shadow and a blusher/bronzer really great I also use their loose mineral face powder in Golden Orange which I just sweep across the face prior to adding shimmer brick. Apart from a lancome eyeliner all my make up is bobbi brown. It lasts for ages so in my view worth the money but also lasts pretty much all day
PS I do use Mac lipsticks otherwise it would all be too bland

I use bone eyeshadow (the cream) and also a couple of the sparkly cream shadows. I use the gel eyeliner too. Also the lipstick in nude is the best all round lip colour, wouldn't be without it and it's very flattering and easy to wear.

The correcter cream is genius. Totally covers up my dark circles!

The best bits they make are the concealer cream, the cream eye shadows (I have the one in Cement) and the shimmer brick. I don't like the pot rouge as it is too drying on the lips.

also the under eye pen thing.
