Bobbi Brown Review: Retouching Pencils and Wands

Hello Beauty Lovers!

I wanted to do a quick review on these products which I found as a very helpful tool for the on-the-go girl. So here is the breakdown, Bobbi Brown has come out with "instant skin -perfecting formulas" in the Retouching Face Pencil and Retouching Wand

Retouching Face Pencil (my fave right now) is so versatile. You can use it for so many different things. I've been working these little pencils for the following: 
 -Contouring - use the darker shades for my jaw line and my cheeks. I just draw the lines and with my finger I blend it out and use my blender to make it more seamless. Best part of all these products is they end up matte so it really absorbs well into your skin and on any makeup you already have on. 
- Under Eye Circles - I have a really hard time covering my dark eye circles and most of all my inner corners of my eyes are very dark. So I take a lighter shade than my skin tone and cover my dark eye circles and inner eye corners. It does wonders and after long wear it does not crack or fade. 
- Define lips - Use pencil that is 1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone and line the corners of your mouth.
- Highlight - I'm a sucker for highlighters and the Illuminate pencil is subtle but long lasting highlighter on top of your cheekbones and brow bones.

Retouching Wand is the other product that I reviewed. This product I have to say I have not used as much as the pencil. I do not have alot of redness or alot of uneven skin. My foundation has always been good about staying on my face BUT there are times when I do not want to wear a full face of foundation. This is when the wand comes in handy. I just dab it with the spongy application all over my face and blend it in with my finger. It goes on smooth and dries matte. It blends it perfectly, if it does not blend perfectly you are using the wrong shade. It has the no-makeup effect which I love for my daily makeup routine.

GIVEAWAY: My 6 Favorite Beauty Products

My first giveaway ever!! I always stay away from giveaways but I thought these products were worth sharing with my readers. So here is a little breakdown of the products the winner will receive and why I love them:

Pacifica Deodorant Wipes: These wipes are life savers, I work out over 4x a week and every day after my Muay Thai Class I bathe myself in these. They smell great and are perfect to have in your bag for those sunny days you can't seem to stop sweating. These wipes are part of the PopSugar Must Have June Box. They send you all sorts of goodies every month, deets HERE.

Diamond Printed Sarong by Hat Attack: I am so happy with this print, and how its neutral. My style is classic and I love color but not too much on what I wear. So this sarong is perfect for your beach wardrobe. I will be posting on how I wear my sarong this week on my social media. Stay tuned for that! Also, this little beauty is part of the PopSugar Must Have June box too.

Born On the 4th Nail Polish from NCLA: Nail Art is very big right now and when I received this in my Must Have Box I opened it and tried it right away. This fun nail polish has some chunky glitter in red and blue. For a simple look paint your nails white and paint this glittery goodness on top for some sparkle.

Sensual Strut Body Wash from European Wax Center: Summer is here and the most important part for me is always being ready for the beach. This body wash which is part of the Strut 365 product line from European Wax Center helps with exfoliation, nourish your skin, helps with ingrown hairs and helps to slow down the regrowth of hair.

AmorePacific Intensive Serum Masque: Right now, I am all about facials, any cream for my face, masks, whatever it takes to make me have baby skin! This Korean brand has exactly what I want, I took off the mask and right away I had an instant glow. This is perfect to put on before a big event.

Dove Bar Soap: For my last beauty product I wanted to share one of my favorite beauty tips. Nothing makes me happier than saving money, I know you guys feel the same. For a cheap and effective way to clean your make up brushes use an unscented Dove Bar Soap. Dove was nice enough to send me some bars so I wanted to give you the scoop on how to clean your make up brushes so you can try it for yourselves Also the Bar is gentle enough to be used as a facial cleanser since its formulated with Dove's signature 1/4 moisturizing cream. It's soft enough for your face and your brushes. 

This post was made in partnership with Popsugar Must Have and Dove. As always, all opinions and writing are my own.

Bobbi Brown's Sunset Pink Collection

Just In! These new goodies from the Sunset Pink Collection from Bobbi Brown. What girl does not like having more makeup?! Let me re-word that, what girl does not like getting easy to apply makeup!?! Here is the thing, I love makeup but I also do not want to look like I have tons of it on nor look like a different person. Bobbi Brown is the best about making products that help your natural beauty shine brighter. 

The Sunset Pink Collection has beautiful tones that will blend flawlessly on your skin. The new collection includes highlighting powder, long wear cream shadows and limited edition -sheer color cheek tints, tube tints and my all time faves long wear gel eyeliner. 

I ofcourse, have tried all the products already, here is a quick review of all of them.

Highlighting Powders - great consistency and it can be built up for more intense highlighting. 
Long Wear Cream Shadows - I love how they look once they have settled in your eyelid. It looks smooth and rich. I felt they were so much easier to apply and blend then non cream shadows.
Sheer Color Cheek Tints - I am a sucker for a good blush, what I loved about this is that it does not cover my freckles. It was sheer but still gave me some color without disappearing after 10 minutes.
Tube Tints - I tried all of them, even though I am currently in love with matte lipsticks, these were great and light enough to use on an every day basis.
Long Wear Gel Eyeliners - I've been a fan of this gel eyeliner for years now, and the new colors are beautiful!!! They are so easy to apply with the Bobbi Brown angled eye definer brush. The blue is my current favorite.
