Review: Bobbi Brown Face Touch-Up Palette

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with a review.  I recently purchased the Bobbi Brown Face Touch-Up Palette. The palette is like a typical powder sized compact but can do so much for so little.  If you're looking for a travel foundation solution or something quick and easy to throw in your purse, this one is for you!

Bobbi Brown Face Touch-up Palette

This palette is the size of a thin powder compact but has everything you need for a full foundation routine.  I brought this palette with me on a trip to Orlando and really fell in love with the foundation.  It's a really convenient palette to have.
I purchased this palette because it contained the foundation shade honey.  It seemed like a perfect match and it is!  It also comes with a  setting powder (yay for it being yellow based!) and two concealers.  I don't use the concealers quite as much except maybe to touch up a blemish...I actually prefer more of an orange toned corrector instead of the pinky bisque shade shown here.
Here are the swatches...left to right:  concealers, foundation and powder.  The powder is great for setting your undereyes to give a brightened, highlighted look.
This palette is absolutely perfect for your purse or travel.  I can really do my whole face with it and I love the honey shade.  I'm going to bring this with me to Europe.  I plan to pack this along with a tinted moisturizer, my Ben Nye Corrector stick and my Jemma Kidd Concealer Duo.  That's all I'll need for my foundation routine for light days and more dramatic nights.  I'm considering scraping out one of the concealers and instead melting in my Ben Nye corrector stick....we'll see if I end up doing it.

I actually purchased this palette at a CCO on sale for around $20 something but it retails for $38 on QVC.  I think it my be a special release.  I don't have too many Bobbi Brown products because they're a bit pricey but this set is worth it.  If you can get your hands on it, I definitely recommend!

I love the idea of this palette in theory, but every time i get a palette that mixes cream and powder products I find that the powder gets into the cream and makes it all gross - did you experience this at all? If not, I might just have to pick it up. It looks like the perfect touch-up kit!
