You guys have no idea how much I have been lusting after the Bobbi Brown Makeup Essentials Kit. Let me tell you - I have been lusting after this kit so much. It has literally at the very top of my wish list, even somehow beating the bareMinerals face palette. I haven't blogged about it previously because i never thought I'd be lucky enough to actually own it, as being able to afford it was a little bit of a stretch for me. I have never used Bobbi Brown products before, but I really want to branch out a little more - I mainly use high street makeup, mixed with Clinique, bareMinerals, and Benefit - so I've been really wanting to try products from other brands to mix it up a little more.
The Makeup Bag Essentials Kit has basically everything I like to use. It has a shimmer brick blush compact with the mini face blender brush (so many bloggers rave about this brush - I am desperate to have it!), a gel eyeliner pot with a fine liner brush, a mascara, and a lipstick. I use all of these kind of products on a daily basis, but I really love this as a more luxurious, updated version of my high-street daily makeup!
What I love about Bobbi's kits are that all the shades of the products she puts into them are universal - all the products will suit any skin tone, so everyone can wear them. I have been eyeing up this kit for the past two weeks, and I have finally been lucky enough to place my order!
I bought my kit from the Bobbi Brown website, which also has a deal on free delivery, as well as 3 free samples of your choice on orders over £50, which works out a much better deal as you get more products than if you had purchased it at a counter, with no travel, or delivery costs. For my free samples, I selected the Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover (30ml), the Soothing Cleansing Oil (30ml), and the Extra Eye Repair cream (2.5ml). I've been on the lookout for a good eye cream, and I absolutely love cleansing oils - they just feel so luxurious to me! I also really need to start taking my makeup off with a proper makeup remover rather than wipes, and that's why I chose the makeup remover. I really can't wait for it to arrive, it looks so amazing!
A couple of days later...
I am so excited right now. I was just wondering what I was going to do today as I didn't have anything planned - when the postman knocked on the door with a parcel for me, which was the Makeup Bag Essentials kit I ordered! Here's what I was lucky enough to open today! Here's the front of the product.

So, this is definitely so far my all-time favourite beauty purchase ever - Eight Bobbi Brown products for the total price of £65, such good value! I already know I'm going to love it. I'll be doing a product review on it soon, and will be showing you how it looks on, which I'm so excited for! Anyway, I hope you've had a day as lovely as I have had!
