Bobbi Brown point perk is now OOS. That was pretty fast!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Here's some swatches of Bobbi Brown Sandwash Pink. And a swatch of the Too Faced gloss. I think both are quite pretty. The BB is a neutral-warm medium pink on me. I don't like the smell of the bullet, but the scent isn't apparent when worn.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Smells like chalk right? But I love that smell for some reason Smiley Very Happy Grabbed one too <3 I hope everyone who wanted it got one!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

So pretty! Glad to have picked up the BB lip mini. I hope it doesn't pull purple on my yellow skin tone though.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

What a shame about the lipstick scent. I love that color and wanted to try the BB formula but I'm very sensitive to scents.

 

I think I got a sample of a BB lipstick in my last Choix box. I should go home and sniff it.  

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

The smell, to me, Is how I remember my mom's lipstick smelling when I would play with her makeup as a kid. It doesn't remind me as an identifiable scent, more like lipstick ingredients, & maybe a little mint oil. 

 

Def check the smell out if you can. I think it would bother me if the scent stuck around, but it didn't seem to once worn

I agree! @playingdressup

 

The smell just reminds me of my mom and grandma's lipstick when I was young.  No notes of cilantro for me! Lol! 😉

 

Also I love the formula so much!  This is so creamy and moisturizing! ❤️

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

it's not really fragranced, more like a plastic smell. I'm really sensitive to smells, and I can't smell it when I wear it.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thank-you for posting this, I literally made an order (I needed hand cream anyways, they aren't looking so good right now in this weather!) just to get these!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

[ Edited ]

I bought a $1 empty eyeshadow palette so I could get both of these rewards Smiley Happy   (Also because I needed one)

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

haha! nice!

 

When I do that my order gets cancelled. Boooooooo

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

i ordered the Consenant organic hand hand cream and some formula x nail polish, i always thought we couldn't redeem any point perks without a $25 (CDN for me) purchase.

 

my hands are disgustingly dry so im really excited to get the hand cream. i purchased it for my brother for christmas and he seems to like it. his hands were all cracked and dry so i have high hopes!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@EmmyLove If the Consonant doesn't end up being enough for you, my HG hand cream is Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve. I haven't found a better hand cream in the 15 years since I started using it Smiley Very Happy 

 

My brother uses it as well; he's a rock climber and says it's well known in the community because of how well it heals dry and cracked hands after a climb! 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

  1. @Llgc thank you for the recommendation!! my hands are not in good shape so its good to have a backup, it sounds amazing. i might have to pass that onto my brother as well, the factory he works in does a number on his hands!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thank you for commenting on the smell! I thought I was crazy!  (Still a possibility)

 

When I smelled the BB it was like.. cilantro.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Wow!  I can't wait until mine arrives- super curious as to how it will smell!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Omg love the hair do! We need to take up a collection to buy some hair products to tame his mane! Haha

@Insomniacmuffin,

I love the smell of cilantro (the real thing!)  Smiley Wink

I own BB Sandwash Pink, and I love the color and the lipstick formula.  I don't remember noticing the scent at all when I put it on.  Smiley Happy

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@tsavorite Mmm I'm with you there, I love cilantro...

 

I feel like most of my friends have this opinion on cilantro though:

I loveeeeeeee cilantro!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

The dislike of cilantro can be linked to genetics. To something like 15% of the population - cilantro tastes like bitter or soap. 

 

Similar in how some people can eat asparagus without issue, whereas others have a smelly bathroom issue later. Some people have the ability to digest the mercaptan found in asparagus, hence the smell, whereas other people cannot - and pass it odorlessly. 

 

Science is fun!
