Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes Collection

This is GO NUDE WEEK (makeup of course) on A Very Sweet Blog! So, today I have products from THE QUEEN of nude makeup...Bobbi Brown! Ya, hardly ever see blog reviews on Bobbi Brown products because they are SUPER DUPER EXPENSIVE! LOL I purchased these products earlier this Summer. They are from her Sandy Nudes Collection. I just tried them out! Let's see how it went!

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff) 


Bobbi Brown Face & Body Bronzing Duo - Supersweet

Telluride (Illumniating Bronzing Powder) & Elvis Duran (Bronzing Powder)

I LOVE THIS! Let me tell you! When I received my order from Nordstrom, I looked at this and almost returned it. The two shades looked so DARK and DEAD! I was like, I picked this? Bobbi made this? This must be a mistake! It looked lighter on the website. So I pushed it aside and never looked at it again until now. WHY did I doubt Bobbi? This palette is so awesome! When I purchased this, it was the only palette. Now it comes in an assortment of shades (3 other palettes + this one)! I treated this like a contour! Here are the steps I took to achieve the look below.

Step 1. Prime your face. (Too Faced Primed & Poreless
Step 2. Foundation. (Too Faced Born This Way
Step 3. Concealer under eyes, dark spots, between eyebrows & up to forehead [midway] (Urban Decay Naked Skin in Medium
Step 4. Bobbi Brown Elvis Duran.With a flat head (or contour) brush, place around the hairline, contour the cheeks and under the chin. Your goal is for light within the inner portion of your face. 
Step 5. Apply Telluride to the apple of the cheeks. 
Step 6. I added extra glow to the bridge of my nose and my cheeks with (Too Faced Candlelight Glow) Step 7. Mascara (Too Faced Better Than Sex)

Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes Brown Shimmer Lipstick #9 - Supersweet

Step 8. Add lipstick. Isn't this shade gorgeous! It comes across really dark in the tube, but it looked really nice once I applied it to my lips. It was creamy. Just the right amount of sparkle. And it lasts a really long time (even after eating). The color is also buildable. One swipe on my lips below. Three swipes in the pictures above. This lipstick makes a statement, but is very soft. 

Bobbi Brown Naked Nail Polish - Bittersweet

This is the dud of the collection. It's available in Naked and Nude. I think someone mixed up my order, because I wanted NUDE. NAKED is peachy pink! But I'll live. What's wrong with this? You need 2-3 coats. You also either have to give it some serious drying time or purchase some drying drops. I thought it was dry, and it dented and peeled. So Bobbi does makeup, but her nail polish...IFFY. I did have good results with one of her other nail polishes. But it was a darker color. These really light colors are always trouble. So skip the nail polish. I also didn't buy the eye shadow palette for this collection, because it was like $70!!! Ok, so tell me what you think? I'm feeling very sophisticated right now. LOL I think this makeup look would look great for Fall also.

The winner of the Too Faced Bon Bon La Creme Lipstick Giveaway is Emma Falvi of the (United Kingdom). Congratulations Emma! I've sent you an email. I will stop by your blogs later today :)

Morning Kim, Bobby Brown is one of my favorite brand, this is such an amazing collection. Love the lipstick shade so much and bronzer also looks great. It's bad that the nail paint is as good as the other products in this collection but still you have picked some lovely products. Kisses <3


Samantha Mariko said...

I love the blush bronzer combo! This might be a good shade for my skin :) the nail polish is also great for summer going into fall! Nude is def an all time favorite of mine

I hate when my nail polish gets smudged but I do love that colour!
I have been wanting to try Bobbi Brown out for a while but not sure if it will react on my skin :(

oomph. said...

the nail polish reminds me of one of butter london's trio...remember those? i kind of like it! love the lipstick, too!

The Dainty Dolls House said...

These are gorgeous. I don't usually like nude products as they would just look like nothing on me, but these ones have great tones which would look super. I can't stand nail polish that takes years to dry and then dents when you think it might be dry, that annoys me so much, I will actually stop using polishes from a company for that. Shame that was a dud. You look marvellous Kim xx

Unknown said...

You look lovely! Shame about the nail varnish because it looks like such a lovely colour.

Bobbie Brown rock the nail polish I love. The shade of bronzer and lipstick look stunning on you.

Lilli said...

Ah, Im so hypnotized Kim! Love this brand so much and now wish I grabbed the bronzer duo kit, it inspires me so much! Sorry for the nail polish though, a bit disappointing! You look adorable, definitely nude shades suit you! xo

Emmylou said...

You look amazeballz, Kim! I love BB makeup too, but they are so expensive...sigh....but seriously, you look so rad using this line:)

Mica said...

Shame the nail polish wasn't the shade you ordered and was such a pain to dry - but at least you enjoyed the bronzing duo, and it looks great on you! :)

I really like the tones and design of BB products. I still have an eye palette from a few years ago. Thanks for the review, Kim! The colours look wonderful! x

Miss Val's Creations said...

I love natural shades like these & I think the colours suit you very well, dear! xoxo

Cee said...

I only have one Bobby Brown item in my make-up collection and there's no doubt it's because of the crazy prices! Still, I do love her collections - the smoky nudes were my favourite, but that blush and bronzer palette looks like it could give every other blush and bronzer in my collection a run for its money. The effect is just gorgeous!

Chic Delights said...

The bronzer looks so dark and dint look like it gives a glow. But I like the lipstick shade because it looks natural and elegant.

daisyperson said...

The blush and bronzer looks stunning on you.


Unknown said...

Kim that bronzer and blush duo is gorgeous!!!! I really want to pick that up now!! I've never tried any Bobbie brown makeup before! You look gorgoues in that lipstick! And yes I think all of these would be perfect for fall season too!

Shireen L. Platt said...

Stop making me want to spend my money, Kim! HAHA! I must admit I am never interested with Bobbi Brown, I mean I love my neutrals but somehow I am never attracted to purchase anything from Bobbi Brown. The Face&Body Bronzing palette and lipstick looks freaking fabulous on you, both will be added into my list to try!

Is it sad that Bobbi Brown is one of my favorite brands yet I've never bought anything from her line?! LOL it's still a little too pricey for my range but its one of the few brands I obsess over on social media and stalk for new releases! That bronzing duo looks absolutely fabulous on your skin, its such a healthy looking flush of color :)


Pilar said...

You so pretty Kim! Love the bronzer and blush duo!


You have the full right to feel sophisticated Kim cause you look so, darling! ;) Huge fan of Bobbi and I totally loved her make up book. I'm receiving newsletters of her brand and always admire the range of products! Once again, you look really beautiful, Kim! Glad you like the first two products.

I haven't used many Bobbi Brown products, but I've seen a lot of reviews of her bronzers. I would love to try that duo. It looks very flattering on you.

While I've never purchased or tried any Bobbi Brown products, I have to admit that first picture of you with the gloss and bronzer is fabulous - you're glowing.
