When someone invents the very thing you always needed but had no clue you needed it, it’s cause for some celebratory beauty high-fiving. The Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil is made to pop in your bag (or pocket) and carry about for little adjustments when you’re out and about. You know, those times when you thought you’d done a great concealing job of those shadows, but now you’re out, it’s not quite so great? Or those moments when foundation starts to fade just a little bit in areas that need them most (nostril corners – if you can describe them as such).
What’s cool about these is that, yes, they’re concealing, but actually have more of a matte foundation impact when they’re on the skin. And don’t worry, there are plenty more colours in the range. Speaking of, we aren’t going to see a single Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil until September/October time in the UK, so if you’re heading Stateside, pick one up.
My samples are all running to yellowish tones but as I say, the range does go from light to dark, and the line on the end is a highlighter. It’s what highlighting used to be about before it got big and everywhere on your face! You can add a little arch of light under your brows, over your cupid’s bow or inner eye corners. It’s the anti-illuminator’s illuminator.
I can easily see myself chucking these in my bag along with a gloss before I go out – they just make touching up so much simpler and a very practical way to cart your make up about.
