Empty Review: Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Moisturizer

I don’t normally go for skin care lines that are produced by a makeup brand, guess you can say I believe in specialization. But in recent years, the beauty industry seems to changing, and the two worlds are converging – a skincare brand can have killer makeup products (Clarins is one of my favorite in the bunch), and a makeup brand may have surprisingly high quality and effective skincare lines.
