Finally the beauty gods have answered my prayers with Bobbi Brown's new Sheer Finish Pressed Powder. As you all know I'm a huge Bobbi Brown fan- the make up leaves you looking like you but just better- without being drag-a-licious and the quality and range of colours for all skin tones is fabulous.
Now I've never been a big fan of powders because 1. they always looked too ashy on my darker skin tone and 2. I do love a dewy glow to the skin but I was really shocked and pleasantly surprised with the colour extensive of this iconic pressed powder. As you beauty junkies may know basic brown was the darkest shade the powder came in. I was always happy that Bobbi gave a nod to having a powder to darker shades as many other brands don't. However, with the new shades golden brown and warm chestnut for the first time ever I questioned whether these shades may actually be wait for it - too dark for me! That's a first people.
The powder is finely milled and silky and just adds a touch of polish to your foundation. It won't settle into lines or leave you looking like Bette Davis in, "Whatever happened to Baby Jane". It makes me feel very grown up and pulled together after having a light sweep of the warm chestnut applied all over my face. If you too are a bit put off with powders, as you feel as a make up artist once said to me like a chocolate truffle i.e. all matte and powdery, a la Naomi Campbell in the 90s with that the heavy natural look. Instead reach for this compact it will rock your beauty world. Enjoy!
