Bobbie is a local brand that is well- known for nail polish, but did you know that they have makeup already? I discovered this first when I dropped by Ministop (Yes! Ministop!) sometime around a year ago and got completely curious. My P600 afforded me an eyeshadow palette, powder foundation, blush, and lipstick! What a steal!
A year after, they have improved their packaging and range, and I'm happy to report that if you are a beauty on a budget, Bobbie Cosmetics should be in your list- it's super affordable, but quality is impressive, ha!
BOBBIE COSMETICS IN DETAIL
A new, local makeup brand from the makers of Bobbie Nail Polish. Bobbie Cosmetics is hip, fun, young, and affordable, fit for the everyday makeup needs of girls and ladies.
It feels like a silicone primer with a transparent consistency. It has that innate silicone odor, but it isn't that bothersome. I like how this one mattifies my face instantly and gives it a smooth appearance. However, don't use with any acid- based product or solutions that have a peeling effect because it won't cling onto the skin properly.
Dare to Bare Duo Face Powder is a wet and dry powder foundation. This is actually the old packaging; it has been revamped already and offers refills for the compacts too. Good job, Bobbie Cosmetics, for saving the environment!
The powder puff is encased in a separate case at the bottom. The powder has a pretty buttery texture; pretty good quality for an affordable powder if you are going to ask me!
The applicator is a classic felt tip: soft and feels a lil' sturdy, though my experience with felt tip applicators is they tend to deteriorate after a few uses.
Packaging is a hard carton with a magnetic closure.
Here are swatches:
The products come in a metallic finish for the dark shades and frost finish for the lighter shades. The shadows have medium to heavy pigmentation and are pretty smooth to apply.
Poppin' Cheeks is a powder blush with its own applicator encased at the bottom of the pan. The blush has a soft texture and pigmentation is medium to heavy. The shade I have is called Cotton Peach.
Onto the lipsticks: Berry Sexy (left) has a satin finish and Red Vodka (right) has a creamy matte finish. Both have a light berry scent. Berry Sexy's barrel got broken though.
BOBBIE COSMETICS IN ACTION
The eyeliner has medium to heavy pigmentation and it is not waterproof, unfortunately. Good for everyday though and if you're staying primarily in air-conditioned places. It also tends to stick to the eyelash curler so allow it to dry up completely before proceeding with the rest of your makeup.
Left- bare skin
Right- two layers of the powder foundation
This is a pretty good powder. Coverage is surprisingly nice even if used dry and for an affordable product; I don't use it wet because I'm satisfied already with its coverage in its dry state. Besides, I'm not a fan of wetting powders.
The powder evens out my skin tone nicely and yields medium coverage. It feels light on the skin that's why I also use this to correct too white or pale foundations. Plus points because there's a shade that fits morenas!
I'm wearing the neutral shades from the Into The Nudes palette. Does the palette and shades remind you of any product? Yes, they remind you of Urban Decay Naked 1, especially for the brown shades.
Pigmentation is medium to heavy and lasts long if worn with an eye primer...yes, that includes even on oily lids. The shadows, given their metallic and frost finish, makes them very easy to blend on the lids. This is my other favorite next to the powder.
Berry Sexy ain't a berry shade to me, but I love how it's an MLBB shade. Formula is smooth and hydrating, yields light to medium coverage, and finish is satin. It has a light berry scent.
Blue- based true red
Red Vodka is like MAC Russian Red, but just a bit warmer. When I first swiped this lipstick on my lips, I was like "WOW! How creamy and pigmented!" It's so affordable, but look at the pigmentation and shade - sooo nice! It's a creamy, demi- matte lipstick that has decent staying power and creamy, non- drying finish.
I like almost everything I got from Bobbie Cosmetics - they're so affordable, but quality is great; feels like I unearthed a treasure at the drugstore. I would recommend that you try these and in the following order: 1. Powder Foundation 2. Eye Shadow Palette 3. Lipstick.
