Bobbi Brown must have been thinking about how it’s the little things in life that count when she came up with her idea for her Limited Edition Face Minis this spring.

Brown packs a big winner in a small package with her Creamy Concealer To Go. Her concealer has always been a favorite beauty secret of ours, but in this tiny compact, it’s a top secret! The compact has both a pink-based and a yellow-based corrector for optimum blending. Sheer pressed powder sets the look once you’ve got it right.

Next in the tiny trio is the Smooth on Mini Foundation Stick. Same formula as her best selling foundation, it’s easy to apply and great for blending. Perfect for on-the-go touchups.

Rounding out the trio is the Mini Sheer Finish Pressed Powder. Sets your foundation and concealer for hours. This lightweight formula will eliminate shine all day long. Comes with its own powder puff, mini of course, for quick and easy application… slip one in your pocket and go!

Another plus, in my opinion, is that you can actually purchase these products according to your skin tone. I’ve always wondered if any woman has the same skin shade and tone for more than four months at a time, particularly as we move into the summer months. These little gems are definitely one of the big hits for the spring and summer. Check them out at or at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman or other fine retail outlets.
