This one time at band camp…
You know a story is coming on dontcha?
I purchased a Bobbi Brown Concealer Palette from QVC a few years ago and I didn’t love it but the more I used it the more it grew on me until suddenly one day I found I couldn’t live without it. The palette came with a Bobbi Brown Dual End Concealer Brush. One side had a typical smallish concealer brush and the other had a blending brush which you could use to apply powder under your eyes to set concealer. Now at the time of my purchase I was suffering some serious dry eye syndrome and I was just discovering that indeed age was creeping up on me and placing powder anywhere near my eyes was a big no-no unless I wanted to age myself by 50 years. The Bobbi Brown Dual End Concealer Brush changed all of that. It became a staple item in my daily makeup regime, an absolute essential item, the I can’t live without you brush of choice…you get the point.
Tragedy struck earlier this year when I lost the brush.
OMG! Horror! It disappeared one day and was never to be found again. Some folks consoled me, told me go out and purchase a blending brush from MAC and use that but it was honestly never the same thing.
So I spent near $80 bucks on another Bobbi Brown Concealer Palette, which I didn’t need considering I had plenty in my other, just so I could get that beloved brush back.
Yes, it was worth that much.
For some odd reason Bobbi doesn’t sell this duo alone but she does have an eyeshadow blending brush that’s similar but not the same so splurging for another concealer palette was well worth the purchase to get back that beloved brush!
You, lucky enough, don’t have to go through the same drama of finding this brush because it’s available now in the Bobbi Brown Deluxe Mini-Brush Set for Holiday 2010.
Dude, I got lost this morning.
Not the kinda lost that requires map quest but the kind that requires a face chart, ASAP, pronto. The Bobbi Brown Smoldering Eye Palette is rock-a-locking like nobody’s beeswax but I was so clueless how to use it. The palette is made up of four decadent shades of color and looks so amazing but damn I was really lost for a while trying to figure out a look using it.
I’ve been wanting to meet Bobbi Brown for ages. I recently had a great chance to when I was invited to a Teen Vogue party and my plans proceeded to all fall down around me when I got stuck at my office until late.
I know if I met her we’d be BBF foreverz! Calling each other up, doing each others hair, talking about boys, having sleep overs, the whole nine yards!
Ok, maybe that wouldn’t happen….damn. I can dream.
No seriously, I’ve really wanted to meet Bobbi Brown for a very long time as she seems like such an interesting person I’d love to sit down with her and just ask her about makeup. You know psychiatrist style, “So Bobbi, I have really dark circles…what can I do? And how about getting flawless coverage?” The closest I’ve come was during her Twitter Q&A Sessions.
If you’ve felt like you HAD to meet Bobbi now is your chance.
Bobbi Brown will be at Macy’s Herald Square on November 7th from 12 to 2 pm located on 34th Street. Yes, there will be a Miracle on 34th this year and it comes in the form of Bobbi Brown. She’ll be signing copies of her new Beauty Rules Book plus you can receive a makeup lesson and personalized face chart, sadly not from Bobbi, but her makeup artists are happy to help and hey, maybe you can sneak a question or two while Bobbi signs your book yay?
Again, real life intervenes and I am unable to make this event. I must have angered the makeup Gods to be treated so shabbily in cases of Bobbi Brown meet ups! They are somehow preventing me from actually seeing her. Perhaps they are scared I’ll embarrass myself and stutter when in her presence.
If you go, take pics?
