Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil in Illuminate Review + Swatch

Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencil Illuminate

Hi everyone!

I’ve been using this product for a while now and have gathered my thoughts on it to review for you guys! I have previously tried a few Bobbi Brown products but they were mostly skincare. I’m just getting into their makeup and so far I have liked what I’ve tried.

When you think about highlighting – you think about mostly powder, liquid or even a cream consistency. This however is a creamy formula that is housed in a chubby pencil casing which makes it very travel-friendly, easy to use, and sturdy. It also comes with the sharpener which is great because you may not already have one that will fit this pencil. The stick concept is easy to use because you just draw it on your face wherever you want a nice sheen/glow. I can place this in my waterline, inner corner and brow bone in a matter of seconds. I like to warm this up on my finger before patting it on to my cheekbones, cupids bow, etc.

Consistency-wise this product is creamy but not too creamy where it ends up looking greasy and gets everywhere. Instead, this is a nice creamy formula that goes on easily and stays put for hours. You can build it to look more dramatic or with just one swipe you get a subtle sheen. There are very fine micro shimmers in there but the eye doesn’t pick that up, instead it looks very fresh and has a sophisticated glow rather than tacky and chunky.

The color is gorgeous and I can see how this shade would work for a variety of different skin tones. It pulls pink with a subtle silver frost but it also pulls champagne with a very light gold depending on how the light hits it.

I really am impressed with this product and this is definitely my gateway into trying out more Bobbi Brown makeup products.

  1. I love Bobbi Brown but I’ve never tried this product before. It looks very versatile so maybe I’ll try it now! My favourite products are the Shimmer Brick in Nectar, Vitamin Enriched Face Base, Smoky Eye Mascara, Corrector, Clear Lip Gloss, Ultra Precise Eyeliner Brush and the Blush Brush.
