Last night, I went to the Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Bloggers event – which was a great get together celebrating women and finding out about the latest news from camp Bobbi.
Pretty Powerful is a campaign which celebrates how beautiful every woman from every background is – and started with a book Pretty Powerful: Beauty Stories to Inspire Confidence. It’s a step by step book which shows before and after photos of all different types of women, from famous actresses, to singers, to ‘real women’ which includes inspirational stories about what beauty means to them, as well as some fantastic tips and tricks not only about make up, but about being confident and happy.
The latest release in the Pretty Powerful campaign is the Pretty Powerful Pink Pot Rogue, which is a multifunctional cream product which you can use on cheeks and lips.
It’s one of those colours that will suit everyone’s skin tones – a gorgeous dusky pink which is very buildable depending on how much colour you want. It adds a fab, natural but finished look and believe it or not, this is the first time in my 29 years I have actually used a cream blush on myself! I rather love it!
I am wearing it as a cream blush, and a lipstick – it’s so easy to apply using the finger, and easily blendable – the design of the packaging; a slim pot with a mirrored lid, makes it super easy to pop in your bag for touch ups on the go.
It’s launched today – National Women’s Day to further send out the message how powerful us women are – and a full 100% of the proceeds of sales (-VAT) will be going to Dress For Success UK – a charity set up to help women get back into the workplace, which I’m sure is a subject close to many of our hearts, especially since the recession. It’s about building up confidence in themselves, in their make up, in their clothes, in their knowledge – getting them out there and ready to work again. What’s not to love!?
You can view some of the Pretty Powerful stories on the Bobbi Brown Facebook Page where you can also share who is a Pretty Powerful person to you, to be in with the chance of the pair of you winning an all expenses paid trip to New York for a makeover at Bobbi Brown HQ!
The Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Pink Pot Rogue is available from all Bobbi Brown counters and online costing £18.
