Gabourey Sidibe and Bobbi Brown Sitting in a Tree, Not Kissing, But Creating a Makeup Collection?
Actress Gabourey Sidibe is rumored to have a cosmetic collection in the works simply because she showed up at a party…what? how? who?! I want in on that party so me and Bobbi can meet, become best friends forever and ever, and have her do a Muse inspired makeup collection. I dream about it every night.
Supposedly the actress was at the Bobbi Brown offices the day of the party, discussing the possibility of doing a color cosmetic collection. Bobbi Brown did Gabby’s make up for the Golden Globes as well recently.
Some reports are saying that they wouldn’t be surprised over the collaboration because of Bobbi’s preference for real-looking women and girls for her models but honestly I don’t think I’ve ever seen Bobbi Brown do a collaboration with anyone. Mind you I’m only a fan for a few years but I haven’t seen Bobbi hooking up with celebs in my years.
If this does happen, the good news, would be that Bobbi is definitely capturing a new audience as Gabby has a deeper skin tone which isn’t quite covered in the current Bobbi Brown range of shades.
What do you think of a Gabby/Bobbi collab?
Would you buy it?
If not Gabby which fresh faced celeb would you choose to grace the covers of the next Bobbi Brown Collection?
Note: This is pure speculation, a Gabourey Sidibe and Bobbi Brown Makeup Collection is not confirmed by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.
In celebration of Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out, Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, has created Les Khakis de Chanel , a collection of three Le Vernis Nail Colours. Ultra sophisticated shades Khaki Rose, Khaki Brun and Khaki Vert can be worn alone or combined for an urban chic camouflage effect.

Not a nail girl here but I knew all my crazy nail girls needed to hear ’bout these.
Will you haul them?
AHAVA has launched it’s first makeup products in a new mineral makeup care line!
You’re not officially American unless you’re multitasking your way through life. Driving while on your cell phone, reading your e-mail while updating your blog, texting your best friend while debating politics with your neighbor, walking while chewing gum at the same time….this is the society we live in. We have to juggle 10 to 20 different tasks a day, we can’t take time out and do one thing and proceed to follow up with another after the first task is complete, we need to do them both, together, simultaneously. If you can’t do it, you’re out of this rat race because it’s an essential skill in work and your personal life (if you have kids you need to juggle even more, say 20-30 different things).
Maybe all that multitasking has drained out into our makeup because many products nowadays promise to do everything and than some. Multitasking is the new wave of your makeup future.
For example the new Smashbox Masquerade Liquid Liner & Lash Overlay performs two functions, nope not one, this bad boy multitasks with the best of us.
I’ve held off my review on Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric for a while now. I purchased all three shades of this blush early in July or so when it originally released. But counters had gotten a very limited stock in plus online was sold out for a little bit which is why I didn’t want to tempt and tease you with something that might prove unattainable.
I thought these were running for a limited time but two of my Armani Beauty counters have recently restocked and they are readily available again on www.giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com so I’d said it’s about time I told you all about them.
Want the good word?
