I’m feeling thoroughly spoilt on the colour-pop matte lipstick front. Bobbi Brown has expanded its new-ish Art Sticks line of fat lip pencils with three hi-vis shades; Hot Pink and Hot Orange (both shown above) and Hot Berry (not shown).
If you love a bright, matte mouth, these are great no-faff tools that deliver excellent coverage without feeling like they’re sucking the life out of your lips. They’re very matte, so they will feel a little dry, but the finish on the lips is beautiful and dramatic. Sold!

Naked and nude makeup palettes have undoubtedly been a thing this year. You can get them at all price points (just search them on British Beauty Blog, there’s a new one along every week) but for me, you can’t beat Bobbi Brown. The formulations are beautiful, the shades are supremely wearable and they work hard for day and night so that even the expensive ones earn their keep. Continue reading
Here’s the latest ‘Ask Alison’ post from retail expert and DRG contributor, ALISON BISHOP, looking at the emergence of interactive digital stores coming from the premium beauty sector

This month it’s all about great textures to flatter natural-looking eyes, lips and face. Continue reading

Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick (£20) has got to be one of the best chunky eye pencils around. The twist-up round-tipped crayon is the perfect thickness for rush hour application – just blend with a clean finger. I’ve been trialling Bittersweet, a limited edition everyday mocha from the new Rich Chocolate collection. It’s billed as a shadow or a smudgy liner but I think it’s a bit fiddly as a liner. As a long-lasting smoky shadow though, it’s foolproof.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, here’s a great new beauty hero product. Launching today is Bobbi Brown’s excellent Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Pretty Powerful Pink. Continue reading
What do you get your mum for Mother’s Day? I don’t always have to worry about this one as my mum lives abroad and is usually pretty happy with a card, flowers and a phone call. But I think you can’t go wrong with something pretty or pampery in lovely packaging. Here are a few beauty ideas that I like in case you’re still stuck… Continue reading
