Bobbi Brown Dress for Success kit, Review

While on one of my Macy's trips, I strolled by the Bobbi Brown counter and saw they had come out with a new Dress for Success kit. I was pretty excited to see this because I purchased the Dress for Success kit that came out last year and I loved it!

This is everything you get in the kit, which includes a Black Ink gel eye liner, mini Ultra Fine liner brush, Best of Bobbi eyeshadow palette, Black Lash Glamour Mascara, and Bellini lip gloss for $60.

This is a great palette of neutrals. If you need a great makeup set for work, or something that you can wear everyday, this palette is for you. You won't need to worry if the shadows will work with what your wearing because they will go with everything!

The lip gloss in Bellini is a sheer shimmery pink. This is a great shade to add a little shimmery and shine to your lips! I always wear bold lipstick, but I love to use this on the center of my lips to really make them pop.

This was the first time I used Bobbi Brown's gel liner, so I was happy this was in the kit. While it's not the darkest black liner I have, I still like it. It doesn't smudge, which is always a plus. After using this one, I would like to get another shade.

I have a few of Bobbi's brushes and I love them. This one is a mini version, but I have actually been using this a lot lately. I love that is has a cap, so you can take it with you. This is different than the standard slanted eye liner brush, this one is rounded, which for some might be difficult to achieve a nice wing, but I like it.

Forgot to upload the mascara picture, but the Black Lash Glamour mascara is descent. It doesn't give you amazing faux lash, lashes but it's a nice everyday mascara. I didn't find it clumpy, but I did have a little flaking at the end of the day.

Bottom L to R Pebble and Hot Stone, Bellini lip gloss and Black Ink liner

Natural light

Overall I think this is a great kit. While the colors are nothing too special, this is a great set of neutrals for everyday wear.

Plus half of the money for this set goes to Dress for Success, which is great!

Bobbi's palettes usually run about $45 and up so this is a great value for everything you get. All of the products are full size as well.

Definitely check this out if you need some great everyday neutral shades.

This is no longer available online but you can find it at your nearest Macy's Store for $60.

Do you have the Dress For Success kit? What did you think of it?

Bobbi Brown gel liner was the first gel liner I ever tried and I have to say probably the best! This set looks really nice. :)

I'm debating over whether to buy Bobbi brown's gel liner or Mac's. What do u recommend? Would be a big help. Thanks.

@Nina, This was my first time trying her gel liner and I quite like it. :)

@Pandora's Box, I would say Bobbi's gel liner. MAC fluidline has more slip to it, if that makes sense, so it can be harder to apply a nice line, especially when your in a hurry. I think the texture of Bobbi's gel liner is easier to apply, so I would go for Bobbi's. :)
