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?

You know those scrumptious Bobbi Brown Smoky, Sultry, Smoldering Eye Palettes we’ve been positively gagging over lately? Well, those are part of the new Bobbi Brown Smoky, Sultry, Smoldering Collection.
Yes, well, we aren’t nearly done with Bobbi Brown Holiday yet considering how vast the collection is but gifting us with more is always in order because hey we’re Americans, more, more, more is our specialty right?
You have it on my authority that Bobbi loves herself some Navajo. Girl slaps that shadow in every single eye palette she introduces.
By now, I got all kinds of a headache from an overdose of Navajo. Every single Bobbi Brown Palette I own has Navajo in it so just like trouble, I don’t go out of my way looking for Navajo, it seems to find me.
At first Navajo was a bit of a novelty. It was a good all over color base and even it’s matte formula wasn’t too, too bad speaking as a self proclaimed shimmer-a-holic here. But than Navajo was rehashed too much and I noticed I was being force fed Navajo when I didn’t ask for a second helping.
In the end I started to hate Navajo.
Until I realized Bobbi Brown made Navajo in a cream eyeshadow.
Hope everyone is lively on this dreary, rainy day. Groan.
Bobbi Brown Holiday 2010 is up and available at www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com and almost all counters I’ve been to has everything available for sale. Have you seen it yet? Picked anything up? Planning to?
In addition to the huge array of palettes released directly from Bobbi Brown, there are also several exclusive palettes popping up at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and Neiman Marcus.
Let’s have a look at those exclusive sets and palettes.
Just when you though Bobbi was all about playing it safe she releases the Crystal Eye Palette. Now Bobbi Brown injects color here and there on occasion but for the most part she’s a professional and keeps to slicker shades of browns, golds, and other colors that work well in a business environment or for more elegant makeup.
I will say prior to starting Musings I was all about loud and outrageous colors of eyeshadow and well into my first years of Musings I was still about that. But I’ve gotten older and I’ve gotten very appreciative of what a single shade of good brown eyeshadow can do for my eyes. I can thank Bobbi Brown for that.
Now for the Holidays, Bobbi got a little crazy and for the first time since I was introduced to the brand she injected a little color into one of her new Holiday palettes.
The Bobbi Brown Crystal Eye Palette for the most part are as wild as Bobbi gets with shades of purple and white however she also included a popping shade of teal eyeshadow that may just surprise you. Go on now Bobbi, getting all crazy on us!
