Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Palette - Review

A couple of months ago I was walking around David Jones when I stumbled across the Bobbi Brown counter, and my eyes lit up when I saw a sign saying 'new'. I'm always a sucker for the latest and greatest, and to be honest I haven't used a lot of Bobbi Brown products, so when I saw the new Face Touch Up Palette I knew I had to try it.



The small and slim palette fits in the palm of your hand which means it's perfect to keep in your handbag or clutch without taking up too much room. The packaging is quintessential of Bobbi Brown, sleek, shiny black cover with white lettering. There's 5.1 grams of product in this little baby, which is surprising considering a standard Bobbi Brown corrector has 1.4 grams, so you're getting quite a bit of product in a palette that is meant to be used for small touch ups. 

The palette comes in 5 different shades that are meant to complement most skin colours including, warm neutral, warm ivory, sand, warm sand and warm beige. If you have quite a dark skin tone I'm not sure how well this palette will serve you and I would recommend everyone going to your Bobbi Brown counter to get colour matched. Due to the high coverage of each of the products you only need a small amount to achieve your desired look. 



If you're familiar with Bobbi Brown you probably already know about their famous under eye colour corrector and concealer duo. In this tiny palette you are lucky enough to get both of these wonderful products which really do come in handy for touch ups. The corrector comes in peach or pink tones and brightens your under eye area while hiding blue or purple tones perfectly. To the right you'll find the creamy concealer, which you use over the top of the corrector or anywhere else you need some extra coverage. Like the corrector, the concealer is a thicker consistency and has excellent coverage. It is long lasting as well as waterproof, sweatproof and humidity proof - so it won't budge! 
The foundation glides on easily and is the same formula as the Bobbi Brown stick foundation. It offers medium coverage but is not suitable to use all over your face otherwise this little palette will run out pretty quickly. It's perfect for touch ups at the end of a long day at work and want to look just as fresh faced as you were 9am that morning.

The sheer finished powder is the finishing touch for your makeup touch up. It's oil absorbing formula means it will take away your shine, while the neutral yellow base makes it easy to match multiple skin tones. You will need to carry a small powder brush with you so you can use this powder while you're on the go. 
Unless you have amazing skin, applying makeup over the top of your already 8 hour old face is never going to go on flawlessly. You will notice build-up of product and the texture won’t be as smooth compared to when you initially applied the product in the morning. By the end of the day my skin starts to produce oil but also my makeup looks like it is sitting on top of my skin, so if I’m going out and have the opportunity, I will cleanse my face and start my base over. But when you don’t have your whole makeup bag with you and time isn't on your side, this is a great alternative!
When I have to go out for coffee or breakfast straight after my gym sessions, I carry this palette with me and just use it where I need it most (particularly under the eyes as I’m not a morning person) and to conceal the left over redness from working my butt off (that’s a lie, pretty sure my butt is getting bigger with all the squats I’m 
The palette is a perfect little tester kit if you want to try out a few of the favourites from Bobbi Brown. If your Bobbi Brown addiction is already well on it's way then this is the perfect addition to keep you picture perfect at all times. 
Light peach corrector, sand creamy concealer, warm sand skin foundation stick, pale yellow sheer finish pressed powder.
Apply the foundation to parts of the face that have started to rub off from using your phone or leaning on your cheek while working hard on the computer *cough* online shopping *cough*. Dab the concealer on spots that have managed to uncover themselves over the course of the day and apply the corrector and concealer duo to ensure you look bright and well rested when you head out for drinks after work.  This is a very clever little palette that incorporates all of your favourites to ensure your skin remains flawless despite whatever your day throws at it.

Have you tried this palette? What are your thoughts?
