Weekly News Digest - 7 March 2014

News and alerts for the first week of March.
Bobbi Brown is extending its make up range with two new products. This week sees the launch of CC Cream SPF 35 (£29), and is cited by Bobbi as the essential prep step, providing a perfect complexion when paired with foundation. The comfortable texture blends seamlessly into skin for a smooth and even canvas, and offers all-day shine control and broad-spectrum UV protection to prevent signs of premature ageing. Available in three shades – Pale Nude, Warm Nude and Golden Nude – it contains soft focus powders to enhance luminosity and disguise imperfections, along with brightening and moisturising ingredients.  

In my relentless search for the holy grail of colour correction for my pale skin with very high colour, I will definitely be reviewing this in the near future.
