I was given an £80 gift card for Bobbi Brown at Christmas. Going to the counter today, what should I get?

Oooh lucky you! I love the gel eyeliners best - you get a teeny tiny brush and it doesn't smudge. Really easy to apply too.

I tried one of the cream eye shadows thinking it would be just as good, but I wasn't impressed. It all clumped in my eyelid lines even with primer.

Thanks, I'm really looking forward to it! Eyeliner sounds fab, does a brush come with it? Have you tried their foundations?

I've just bought a Long-Wear cream shadow stick (golden bronze), which is beautiful.

Their pressed powder is fine textured and lovely.

The bronzers are good and the shimmer bricks look nice, as do the cream eyeshadows in pots and brushes.

Oh to be you today...

I use one of their foundations, their brightening powder, their eyebrow crayon and gel, their bronzer and their eye liner gel. Got a few of their blushers too.

Just read YoungGirl's comment about the pots - how disappointing! I was going to get one of those when my Chanel one runs out.

Brightening finishing powder is my recommendation costs £40 and I haven't managed to find anything as good anywhere else for less. Or their brush sets are good although very expensive, looks like there is a mini one for £59 that might be worth investigating.

I have the moisture rich foundation, it's fine but I tend to use tinted moisturiser instead, get them to recommend something - they'll try to flog you the foundation brush, bought it and never really use it.

Do watch out for the upselling - my BB counter is notorious for it and £80 won't go too far.

I love the eyebrow crayon! One end is crayon and the other is a brush.

Now I'm excited but yes can see that my voucher may not go far! The porcelain brightening powder looks so bizarre. Think I'll aim for a foundation and eyeliner and see if I can be talked into an eye shadow and the brightening powder. Will let you know what I end up with!

So many lovely products, I bought a serum foundation, gel eyeliner (went to Boots for the brush), the brightening powder and stick eyeshadow in goldstone. Can't wait to do my make up in the morning!

Ooh! I just came on to look for an update (saddo). Sounds lovely.
