PRODUCT LAUNCH: BOBBI BROWN THE RETOUCHING PENCIL AND WAND
Bobbi Brown is always about the natural flawless look and with the current raging trend for contouring, Bobbi Brown has created multi-purpose concealers that also serve a variety of purposes.
They have introduced two new concealers – Retouching Face Pencil and Retouching Wand.
Retouching Face Pencil
This Face Pencil perfects skin on the go. It can be used to retouch shadows, dark spots, cover redness and highlight the face. It can also be layered over foundation for added coverage.
The pencil comes with it's own sharpener. The tip has a firm yet creamy texture. It glides on comfortably and blends really easily. It is also great for precise concealing. When pimple appears or red spots, I simply tap it on the spot and blend.
Swatch colour 'Porcelain'. I absolutely loved this pencil. It was so easy to use and blend that I did not need to apply any other product afterwards.
There are 9 shades in the collection and 1 Illuminate Pencil that is ideal for all skin tones. The Illuminate Pencil can be used for highlighting cheekbones, the inner corners of the eyes, or browbones. Or use it to create a subtle strobing effect - just swipe on the high points of the face and blend in with fingers.
How to best use your Retouching Face Pencil
To conceal shadows
Choose a pencil one to two shades lighter than your skin tone.
Apply on inner corners of the eyes, around the nose, and corners of mouth.
To cover dark spots
Start with a pencil one to two shades lighter than your skin tone.
Next, layer with a pencil that matches your skin tone.
To cover redness
Choose a pencil that matches your skin tone.
Apply before or after foundation, wherever you see redness.
It can also be used to touch up skin throughout the day.
Apply the Illuminate Pencil on top of the cheekbones, the inner corners of the eyes,
and on browbones. Blend with fingers.
Available now in stores in 10 shades - RRP $ 46
This product is a hybrid between a concealer and foundation. Instantly erasing imperfections such as redness, and dark circles with a quick touch of the sponge. It’s said to feature a patented pigment technology that makes possible a formula light and virtually undetectable on the skin.
This portable lightweight concealer has a creamy texture and provides sheer to medium coverage that blends onto skin easily. This is perfect for girls who do not like to feel the heaviness of product on their face (me).
The wand works by twisting the base until product is dispersed via the sponge tip applicator - similar to the Touche Eclat.
This unique formula seamlessly blends into the skin. It features patented pigment technology to deliver an undetectable, no-makeup coverage, giving you that airbrushed finish, no blending required. Use it just where you need it or all over, as you would a foundation.
The Retouching Wand can be applied under the eyes, around the nose, chin and forehead. It is also perfect for around the lip area and serves as barrier to prevent lipstick bleeding.
It can also be used on it's own to conceal redness, or over your base product for a more perfected look.
The Retouching Wand was easy to control and apply. I was able to achieve a flawless look covering all my skin imperfections - rosacea, redness on the chin and pigment on the high cheek area. I did not use any foundation whilst using the wand.
The retouching wand comes in 9 shades, all with yellow to neutral undertones.
Available in stores on September 4 - RRP $62
The Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil is available now and the Wand will be available from September 4 at all Bobbi Brown counters and boutiques. For more information check out their website here.
