Five years after she stepped back from her eponymous beauty company, legendary makeup guru Bobbi Brown returned with new brand Jones Road.
The original 20-piece collection of clean makeup and skincare products was created with a simple ethos in mind – that every single product should be a hero product.
Here's everything you need to know about Jones Road and the best products to try...
What is Jones Road?
After stepping away from the beauty brand she founded in the '90s back in 2016, Bobbi Brown launched Jones Road.
The offering consists of multi-purpose products, promising to deliver "clean, strategic, high-grade formulations that work on every skin type and tone – and that are as simple to use as they are to master to be easy to use and effective".
Everything about the brand, from the simple but stylish packaging to its clean ethos, feels fresh and modern.
In terms of its clean credentials, the brand says that it follows guidelines that are even more stringent than those of the EU, eliminating a whole host of unwanted ingredients, including phthalates and sulfates.
Chatting about the brand on her website, Bobbi says: "Four years ago, after I left Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, one of those questions was: 'Why can't I find makeup products that are both clean and high-performance –that don't sacrifice one for the other?'
She continues: "What I wanted was the makeup equivalent of a Swiss Army Knife: Easy, cool, multi-purpose products that could be used to nail any look, whether it be no-makeup makeup or something with more drama."
Brown goes on to describe Jones Road as "a growing collection of simple, smart products for all ages, skin types, and skin tones that help women achieve the no-makeup makeup look naturally".
Where to shop Jones Road
Now, Jones Road has officially landed in the UK. Previously you could only shop Jones Road online via the brand's website, but the must-try makeup brand has now launched in Liberty London, in store and online.
"I needed one place that people could go in and touch and feel product and actually was connected to Liberty who jumped at the opportunity," Bobbi explains. "Liberty is my favourite store – it’s like no other store in the world so I’m pretty excited about the launch!"
You can now shop an edited collection of Jones Road at Liberty, see our top picks below to help you discover new favourites.
Best Jones Road products
The Jones Road collection is small but versatile, covering everything from skincare and cosmetics to tools and beauty kits, which are designed to help you create a full beauty look with ease.
The latest addition to the Jones Road line-up, The Bronzer (£32) has been two years in the making and it does not disappoint. A velvety powder to add warmth to the skin, it's available in seven shades and has been developed to work across a range of skin tones. Bobbi says: "Often bronzers can be too dry, too orangey, and way too shimmery, which makes them difficult to blend. This is not like most bronzers. Our Bronzer adds warmth to the skin, and can be used as an all-over skin tint, or for colour correction if your skin is looking sallow. It's minimal, quick, and easy to use. It's really reinventing a staple product everyone should have in their makeup bag." The new Bronzer Brush (£40) is a must-have companion for flawless application.
What the Foundation (WTF)
Jones Road's must-have base product, What The Foundation (WTF) £42, is a moisture balm meets foundation packed with skin-nourishing ingredients including Jojoba Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate. The WTF had a viral moment on TikTok and has since had raving reviews from beauty editors and enthusiasts alike. Available in 12 shades, the main aim of Bobbi's base is to achieve a 'your skin but better' look that blends seamlessly.
The Lip Tint
Another recent addition to our Jones Road collection are the brand's £26 Lip Tints. Described as "Bobbi’s take on a traditional lipstick", the moisturising lip product glides on effortlessly and is perfect for on-the-go. It's available in nine shades, and is a buildable tint so it's ideal whether you want a sheer touch of colour or a dramatic, bold lip.
Shimmer Face Oil
The Jones Road Shimmer Face Oil, £34, launched just in time for summer 2022. Described as "subtle glow in a bottle", the lightweight, silky oil promises to waken up the complexion and add radiance to the skin. It's a makeup-skincare hybrid blended with nine oils to nourish and hydrate, and it's available in four flattering shades.
"It is great alone and great to mix with foundation," explained Bobbi Brown. "I use one pump and I like to put it everywhere, however if you haven’t used it before try using half a pump first. It doesn’t look super glittery, it’s just enough and it is so finely ground that it doesn’t sit on the skin or sink into fine lines."
Another hero product is the £36 Miracle Balm, a light-reflecting product that can be used to add a wash of colour anywhere you want to tint or glow, including on the cheeks, lips and eyelids.
What's more, Jones Road has recently added a new shade to the collection - and it's a makeup bag must-have for an instant boost. Flushed, is a warm pink that instantly brightens the complexion. Speaking about the new launch, Bobbi said: "Blusher adds an injection of vitality to the skin, this tint combined with the moisturising texture of Miracle Balm equals Flushed.
"Whenever I don’t feel my vibrant self, Flushed fakes it - I pop a little bit of colour high on the cheekbones, across the nose or swept over the forehead. When people see Flushed they might think it looks a little intense, however it is sheer with small gold flecks. Flushed does everything, it’s a Blush, it’s a Tint - there is no rulebook."
The Face Pencil
The Face Pencil, £24 – also dubbed "the everything stick" – is a must-try. It promises to cover redness and dark spots, correct discoloration and lighten dark circles, all while delivering a natural finish that is described as "virtually undetectable".
The Miracle Cream
We've also got our eye on the pleasingly affordable Miracle Cream, £38, which not only promises to leave skin feeling plumped and refreshed, but contains acne-fighting Sunflower Seed Oil, hydrating and anti-inflammatory Vitamin A, and nourishing Shea Butter. It can be used as a daily moisturiser for dry skin types or as an overnight mask.
