Review | NEW Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick
This is what it says on the Bobbi Brown Website:
Bobbi’s magic eraser—instantly blurs the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, more lineless look. The colorless, breathable and ultra-lightweight formula glides on easily and feels weightless, making it comfortable for all-day wear. Use it to prep skin for seamless makeup application, or to touch up and control shine throughout the day.
Infused with a powerful peptide, the formula helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as soon as you apply. A unique triple suspension complex creates an effective yet breathable blurring layer that helps to smooth and perfect skin’s texture. Plus, it works over time to absorb excess oil and control shine.
Swipe over fine lines and wrinkles before makeup and throughout the day as needed to smooth, mattify and absorb oil.
So, I’m always on the hunt for something that will help blur all my fine lines and pores, and (mostly because of the name) I figured I’d see if this is worth it.
Now, when I first got this I was very surprised with how small this really is, because I thought it would be kind of like a foundation stick size, or at least half of it, but this is more like a big concealer stick, so that’s something you should keep in mind if you’re buying this online.
Now, I have tried this underneath my eyes to see if it prevents creasing, and I have tried it on my pores to see if it would fill them in/blur them, and for underneath my eyes I don’t like this.
The reason I don’t like it for underneath my eyes is because it really does hold up to the oil-control claims, and that’s just too drying underneath my eyes, and I don’t really think it fills in/blurs my fine lines/wrinkles anyway.
However, I do love it when I use it where I have bigger pores and where I get oily, like my nose and my cheeks, because this really does help to control oils throughout the day.
And it is the only primer type product I’ve tried that actually does that, so for that I think this is fantastic, but when it comes to bluring fine lines etc, I don’t really think that this holds up to it’s claims.
Maybe if you have very, very tiny areas to blur, but for me I don’t think it’s worth it if that’s what you’re buying it for.
And it is very expencive considering how little product you get, so I’m a bit torn with this.
But since it is the only product I’ve tried that helps with my oils, I do think it’s worth checking out, but I would recommend that you only use it on special occasions because of the price.
I got mine from Kicks for 370nok.
