I met Bravon at an event I was working as a Makeup Artist a few years ago. I wondered what he was going to be like… He surprised me. He was one of the kindest men I’ve ever met. After hours of work, he kept smiling and taking pictures, giving advice and complimenting women who had come to the event to meet him and hear the fantastic makeup advice he had to give.
I was excited to hear about his new adventure – Bravon Beauty – Artist Activated Cosmetics. It has been exciting to watch bits and pieces unfold across the internet. You had the sense he was talking straight to you every time a picture went up and he gave his thoughts. Follow @bravonbeauty on Instagram to be a part of the conversation.
So I waited a month after the product launch to order. I wanted to wait until the bugs (if any) were worked out and I saw what other people liked and were posting. I’ll be honest, I didn’t see much that initially enticed me, but I wanted to support someone who has had a huge impact on me as an artist. So a few weeks ago, I ordered some product. Bravon confirmed my shipment and it arrived in just two days! The packaging was gorgeous and a beautiful picture with a note from Bravon was on top.
Makeup is an experience for me… I love the packaging. I love the smell of new products. I love the way a lipgloss feels in your hand. The way a package will have fun little details that you may miss if you don’t look at them closely. I was sure to examine all of these as I wanted to experience it, enjoy it an share it.
I’ve been around long enough to know that you could buy white label cosmetics, slap your name on it and try to pass it off as your own. I know that he’s personally been working hard to create the *perfect* formulas that women want and expect from him.
When I chose my product, I looked through the site and immediately the technology built in to the product was overly impressive. The product that I knew I HAD to have was the Lip Prefix Primer Liner in Nutmeg – I’ve been searching for the perfect nude lip and Bravon had the colors to create just that. I then chose the Motto Matte Moisture Lipstick (#mottomatte) in Believe in yourself Beige and went from there… I’ve been busy swatching colors and taking pictures because I want to tell you how fantastic this product truly is!
