Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Reintroduces Discontinued Lip Colors via Exclusive Facebook Campaign

I remember my first blush, it was a mosaic peach shade, purchased at the drugstore for the very high price of $9.99 (that was high way back when). I think it was by Black Opal? I was about 16 at the time and adored it. It was thee perfect shade of gorgeous. Being a teenager and not knowing a ton about makeup I continued to use said blush well into my senior year of high school but one day I proceeded to drop it on the floor. I was devastated to say the least but hey, no worries, head to the drug store, pick up another one, and call it a day. Sadly, after searching and searching I couldn’t find it. So I did a little sleuthing, called the company, and proceeded to learn that it was discontinued. That was my first real discontinued woe. I graduated from high school that year and proceeded to spend the next several of my college years trying to replicate the finish and color of that blush with many, many, many blush purchases.

Sadly, I never did find a shade like it.

Dontcha hate that feeling? I was gutted to say the least and I wonder if someone handed it to be right now if I’d feel it was as wonderful or was it just my youthful makeup dreams?

The good news?

Avon Shine Attract Lipstick Available Soon

Sign up at to be the first to know when the new Avon Shine Attract Lipstick launches (it’ll be available at the intro price too of $4.99).

I blogged these a week
or so ago and I’m absolutely fascinated and a little obsessed with them. The core is color but the surrounding base is a clear so it supposedly gives a smooth glide as you apply with a shiny finish.

It’ll be available in 15 shades on the launch.

I’ll get a review and swatches up as soon as I can purchase them!
