I love Bobbi Brown. As I’ve gotten older (yes, I’m about to turn 40, I think I likely qualify as old. Or Old-ish.) I’ve found that their products work even better for me. I’ve pulled together a list of favorites, and believe me, it was hard to pare it down this much! I was pulling stuff out of drawers and off of my vanity… so many of my daily go-to products are from Bobbi!
This is a well pigmented eyeliner, and it works really well when you smudge it right into your lash line. It stays put all day!
My favorite shade: Chocolate Truffle
I think of this as the “original and best” gel eyeliner. I dip the Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush into the liner and then smudge it right at the base of my lashes. It creates a very defined line and it doesn’t smudge.
Bobbi Brown’s concealer is a classic, and while I do like it, I tend to reach for the Corrector a lot more. It has a faint peach tint, just enough to cancel out my undereye circles. However, it is enough of a skin tone color that I can wear it alone, without needing to layer a regular concealer over it.
This is one of my go-to products for work, I mentioned it in my 5 Makeup Basics for a Makeup Bag post. I just draw all over my face, then buff with a brush. It gives me perfect medium to full coverage concealer in about 2 minutes! I use Cool Sand as my shade, note that the Bobbi Brown site typically has the largest selection of shades.
Bobbi’s shadows are just amazing. You can buy the big single pans (I recommend getting one of the empty palettes and filling it), but really I just go for the limited editions that come out in stores each season. I have found that they are beautiful colors and blend well. To get a slightly richer color, I do often use them with a glitter eyeshadow primer (the ELF one is my favorite).

I mentioned this in my Favorite Splurge Mascaras post, this is my go-to non-waterproof mascara. It picks up every lash and keeps it looking long and curled all day long without smudging.
This shadow stick is super easy to use, just draw it over your eye and blend with a fingertip or shadow brush. It lasts all day and takes about 30 seconds to create an eye look.
The best shades: Pink Sparkle, Truffle, Nude Beach, Goldstone
I swear I’ve been using the same Bobbi Brown blush in Pale Pink since October and it barely looks touched. Don’t let the shocking pink fool you, this pop of color creates just the right glow and it works whether you are super pale or very dark. It really works for everyone!
This is a very pigmented matte bronzing powder, perfect for creating a sun-kissed look. I use Elvis Duran, which is the lightest shade.
Confession: I now own three of these lip balms. I carry them everywhere. Here’s my original Bobbi Brown Extra Lip Tint review. I wear it in Bare Pink.
They recently came out with a liquid version of this stick, but I prefer the original version. It’s a well pigmented and easy to use lippie, it lasts for hours. My favorite shade is shown here, Dusty Pink.
You can use it as blush or a highlighter, just vary the size of your brush to change up the application. My go-to shade is Pink Quartz, but it comes out in many different variations and some stores have exclusives.
