Review: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation

No, just no.

+ Facts

30ml / 1fl.oz.
Glass packaging with a pump
Shade 4.5 Warm Natural

+ Thoughts

Longevity. My oily skin 1 - This foundation 0. This foundation is not a match against my oily skin and I'm an oily mess within a few hours. I would go as far as saying that this is the worst liquid foundation that I've tried in the longevity department. So much for "long-wear".

Coverage and colour. Medium coverage. I do enjoy the colour of Bobbi Brown foundations in general. They have a good amount of golden and yellow tones. I also own the Skin Weightless Powder Foundation in the same shade and both match me well.

Application. This foundation does not spread well across my skin and sort of tugs. I use a round kabuki brush (Sigma F82) to apply it. I find myself having to apply more product than I normally would and spending more time to blend. A primer is required for a smoother application.

US Luxury Buys

These are arguably the most exciting purchases on my trip.  I don't own many designer items so this was definitely the perfect opportunity to spoil myself since designer items are so much cheaper in the States.

Coach Legacy Mini Tanner - Black Saffiano Leather

I absolutely love this bag. I think it is so cute and sleek.  I had seen it online before my trip and was so excited to see it in person.  I have to admit that it is a bit small for my liking because I like carrying a lot in my handbag.  But it's perfect to bring along to a party or dinner.  I got 25% off since Macy's was having a promotion.

Kate Spade Cedar Street Luciana - Black

I purchased this bag for work.  It's simple and big enough to fit  A4 documents if I need.  What sold me was the flap at the top.  It really irritates me when bags only have a button closure on top because your belongings aren't secure and if it rains then you're in all kinds of trouble.  I got 60% off at the Kate Spade outlet as they were having a 60% off storewide sale.

Juicy Couture Sunglasses

I bought these sunnies because I already had a pair of aviators at home and wanted something that was a bit more feminine. I really like the mirrored sides as they're not too over the top but are still eye catching. These were also heavily discounted from Solstice Sunglasses.

So those are all my fancy purchases. Hope you enjoyed seeing those. I've decided against doing a post with my clothing purchases (which I mentioned in my last post) because it would take me a while to take all the photos.

US Makeup Haul

If you know anything about the price of makeup in Australia, you would know that is it an absolute rip-off and is something I've ranted about on numerous occasions on my blog. So it really should surprise you that I bought a good amount of makeup while I was there.

I had so much fun checking out all the drugstores and I also visited the e.l.f Studio on Broadway which was awesome. And of course my trip wouldn't have been complete without going to Sephora. I absolutely loved it. Only downside was my holiday was during the weeks leading up to Christmas so the stores were always packed and super crowded. Definitely didn't help that I tended to visit the busier stores i.e. Times Square and the one near Macy's on 34th. Anyway, who doesn't love a makeup haul, so here we go!
