If you’re a beauty junkie you probably already knew that QVC had an all day beauty event on Saturday. As tempting as it was to stay inside and just watch beauty on the tube, the weather was too nice to resist the temptation of outdoor play so this Muse Tivo’ed up everything that was on this Saturday and fast forwarded through it early this morning to get a peep at what she missed!
After fast forwarding briefly I came across two or three items I had to have but was somewhat relieved that it wasn’t a ton of must have items.
Here’s what I hauled:
I’m not sure why but I got a bit crazy with all the Laura Geller items offered. It seemed like such a good deal and the Kiss and Bake set. The few times I’ve tried Laura’s baked goodies they have always been a tad chalky but I decided what the heck, might as well re-try ’em!
As for the Bobbi Brown, obviously you can see why I love these shadows plus I thought it wasn’t too bad a deal for all three.
I’m looking forward to scrolling through the rest of my Tivo’ed recordings to see what else was offered on Saturday!
What did you haul?
It’s that time again kids! Time for a Beauty Battle! Taking two of my favorite cream blushes and battling them again each other should make for an awesome fight. Stila Convertible Color versus Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge to the death!
Let the game begin!
Let me tell you this is sadly not much of a battle as it’s easy enough to see who will win here but let’s have a go and see what you think after I’ve butted these two against each other!
Stila Convertible Color comes housed in a cute little palette with embedded flowers on it’s lid and a nice full size mirror for on the fly application. Packaging wise Stila has it going on. When compared to Bobbi’s very minimal black pot design there isn’t much of a question which is the cuter of the two. Placing cuteness aside Stila Convertible Color has alot of catching up to do in the price and size department. At 0.15 oz in size with a price tag of $25 USD, Stila has alot of work to do to catch our attention aside from sweet packaging.
Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge def doesn’t have the cute factor in it’s ring but it has the size and the price tag to please! No mirror here and no cutesy flower compact but a $22 USD price tag and a size of a whopping 0.38 oz makes Bobbi Brown a fierce competitor for Stila Convertible Color. So that’s over double the size of Stila plus $3 bucks cheaper? Uh oh Stila look out!
Both formulas are incredibly long wearing and can easily be considered almost an identical product.
Stila takes a sucker punch from Bobbi Brown in the color department. With merely 7 shades and Bobbi coming up on 10! Things are starting to tip dangerously in favor of Bobbi’s side here. Stila defends itself with a quick punch to the left and snaps up about LE color releases for Stila Convertible Color but can we swayed by cute packaging, a few LE colors, and a high price tag? Probably not.
Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge wins this beauty battle kids! Great formula, long wearing, a huge size for a nice price tag makes it the champion in this fight. Sorry Stila…it was obvious from the start you weren’t going to win this one. We love you but your size and price leaves a bit to be desired.
How about you?
Is Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge your winner?
Or is Stila Convertible Color your champion?
Tell the Muse!
Oh Bobbi you always know the exact right thing to perk a Muse up! Your Nautical Collection makes me want to sail away! Must be that fresh look your model is wearing with her subtle navy eye shadow, gently flushed cheeks, and come kiss me lips.
Gorgeous is an understatement!
Keeping it soft and simple is the order of business with Bobbi Brown Nautical Collection. As the weather becomes hotter a full face of makeup becomes less and less appealing. Something softer, lighter is always a welcome relief and also flattering and pretty.
Step it up with four shades of Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Lip Gloss which is the newest gloss formula from Bobbi. It’s super sheer with just a hint of kiss me color. Available in four shades for a limited time for $20 USD each.
- Marina Pink
- Cabana Coral
Just a touch of color for cheeks makes for a perfect light weight makeup this Summer. Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tint gives cheeks a sheer, natural touch of color in an easy to use swivel-stick! Available in six luscious shades for $22 USD each, but snag ’em fast before they are gone for good!
- Sheer Raspberry
- Sheer Lilac
- Sheer Pink
- Sheer Mauve
- Sheer Coral
- Sheer Blackberry
And finally a touch of mascara to define eyes. New Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara makes the most of every lash with one sweep of the wand! Available for $24 USD
The Muse will take all of those glosses thanks so much! They look delicious! This collection is kinda calling my name at the moment and I’m looking forward to taking it for a spin. It’ll be especially nice for the warmer weather and makes for great light packing when traveling on holiday! Likey! Wants it!
What do you think?
Dying for some Nautical fun from Bobbi?
Tell the Muse!
My pink radar is currently tuned into Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Confetti. Loves it!
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Confetti was released with the Bobbi Brown Platinum Collection and in my opinion easily ignored since it’s a simple, sheer pink shade. But remember kids try not to judge a book my it’s cover!
The shade does look a tiny bit dull in the tube but on my lips is looks stunning. It’s a nude pink that gives me lips a full look while coloring them a natural, sweet shade of pink! Although it’s supposed to be a shimmer formula I got more of a pearl finish to the gloss which I normally don’t like but exceptions are made for such a lovely color.
The formula has quite a bit of tack and stick so it’s incredibly long wearing however I do detest the lip brush that comes with all BB glosses. Why oh why do they always split!? It drives me quite mad and makes me grumpy as hell! Aside from that one minor rant I think Confetti is worth checking out before it’s gone for good!
Great shade, loves it and Muse Approving it for purchase!
Did you haul Confetti?
Loving it as much as the Muse?
