Bobbi Brown: Be Who You Are

Bobbi quote


It’s an incredible 25 years since Bobbi Brown launched her first range of ten wearable lipsticks that suited a multitude of skin tones. Those of us old enough to remember the orange foundation and blue eyeshadows of the 80s have a lot to thank her for. For me as a customer, Bobbi Brown was the first counter I ever sat at and felt that my face was being enhanced by the makeup that was being applied, not air brushed out behind a wall of thick colour.

Bobbi’s philosophy has always been to support women’s confidence with the right makeup, tools and knowledge. To celebrate her milestone, she’s created a new selection of videos and tutorials over on the Bobbi Brown site and Youtube channel under the banner of “Be Who You Are”, celebrating the style and personalities of 40 women of different backgrounds, ages and ethnicities (including Kim, below).



If you’re wondering what the “Original Ten” lipsticks looked like, they’re now available again here, £21, (along with some new releases in one of our favourite lip formulations, Luxe Lip Color, £25, previously reviewed by Sali here).
