Makeup Bag Takes on Bobbi Brown’s Pink Raspberry Collection

The Muse’s most beautiful mate Erika, from Makeup Bag, has me lemming Bobbi Brown’s newest collection!

I must say I’ve had my ups and downs (Click here to view my woes and Click here to view my wows) with Bobbi Brown but I reboarded the Bobbi Brown train and headed over to Nordstrom’s after seeing Erika’s beaitiful FOTD today. Click here to see Erika sporting some of the Pink Raspberry collection.

I was actually really good about ordering from this collection and only got two items (I know I even amaze myself sometimes with the strength of my willpower!).

The two items that intrigued me most were the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks. I dunno what it was but I guess I was blinded by the two colors that were released for the collection. They look stunning. I love blushes that give me a pinched look and these most definately fall into that category! Honestly a majority of the time I work the “cute” look thus really sweet pinks make there way onto my cheeks. I don’t have alot going for me in the beauty department so “cute” is my way of working it thus these are most definately something that can give me the “cute” dewy look that I favor!

The palette does intrigue me but fact of the matter is it seems two costly for what you get. At $55 I can think of another palette or other makeup items I’d want much more!

The glosses are equally pretty but won’t be too flattering on me so that’s more money saved and the lip pencils just aren’t me. I’m not one for lip pencils.

Finally as gorgeous as the brush set was it was too expensive for me to really bother with!

So really not much wormed it’s way into my heart or cart for that matter.

I can’t believe the words “expensive” are popping from my very lips. Suddenly I’ve become the frugal shopper. Bloody hell what’s wrong with me!?

I think mostly Erika’s gorgeous FOTD really sold me and upon seeing the beautiful shades from the potted blush I knew I had to have those!

I’m a bit scared as I don’t have very good luck with the staying power of cream blushes but I’m hoping these are good!

You’ll see my review on these two blushes soon (My raves or my ranting like a loon! We shall see which!) until then are you loving this collection? Want any of it? Skipping?

Tell me!

    That model is really pretty, so I’m trying to refrain from saying anything mean about her teeth. I tried to say something positive, like “I hope Bobbi Brown is paying her enough for a new set of Lumineers”, but then I realized it was still mean.

    LOL Mandy!

    You’re a nutter. I have to say her teeth are a bit off but she is pretty. I think it’s kinda nice to have an unflawless type modeling! Makes us small fries feel better about our imperfections ;)
