Review du Jour: Bobbi Brown BBU Face Palette

After much anticipation (nearly a summer-long wait), I received the Bobbi Brown BBU Face Palette.  I have been consistently using this product on myself and my clients as I wanted to get a feel of the product before posting a review on it.  I do have to say, I am extremely satisfied. 

Pros: I am in love with the packaging of this product.  With 11 shades of corrector, 14 shades of concealer, and 20 shades of foundation stick, it has it all!  I love having a product in my kit that I can literally only use and be so satisfied with.  The textures of the corrector, concealer, and foundation stick are fantastic.  Bobbi Brown is known for her creamy concealers that cover brilliantly, and skin perfecting foundations that well, perfect the skin!  If your a makeup artist, or an aspiring makeup artist, this palette in my opinion is a must have in your kit.  Instead of individually purchasing the concealers, correctors, and foundation sticks, the palette includes it all.  The packaging is organized, and is small enough to not take too much space.  We all know how much space individually purchased products like foundation for example can take up in our kits!  With this palette all you need to do is... grab and go.

Cons: As makeup artists, we know how important sanitation is.  We have to always make sure products or brushes are properly sanitized and cleaned before being used.  Taking into consideration the BBU Palette, I do have to be more careful with how I retrieve the product.  I like to use the spatula to take some product out and apply it onto my Crystal Powder Paw Palette where I then apply with a brush onto the face.  Also, anything that can be disposed such as wands or q-tips would be great to take out the product for application.  Since this palette is prone to bacteria because of the packaging and how closely the welts are to eachother, I lightly mist alcohol directly onto the palette and let air dry for a few minutes to keep the product sanitized.
Next, I do wish the welts in this palette were a little bigger.  But, we have to remember, it is ideal for an artist working on shoots or fashion shows that needs a product with all the beauty essentials for touch-ups at your fingertips!
Lastly, this product is not inexpensive.  Although it is a little bit of an investment, the return on the product makes the price worth every penny.
