Bobbi Brown Bronzed Pink Collection Review

As per my original sneak peek post at Bobbi Brown’s Bronzed Pink Collection today I am bringing you my complete review of the items I snagged from the collection.

Picture+001

The collection consists of a variety of beautiful bronze powders, shadows, and lip colors. I think this collection would be appealing to those of you that enjoy a sun kissed look for the Summer. I’m not particularly a big fan of bronzers myself but I’ve been experimenting a bit which is shocking! I’m brave enough to go out of the house wearing bright pink eyeshadow but when it comes to natural, neutral shades or in this case bronzers I find that I’m not so courageous.

I was lucky enough to get a chance to test out the metallic eyeshadows and tinted lip balm. I’ve been yearning to try out the tinted lip balm for a while now!

The tinted lip balms are a moisture rich lip treatment with a tiny touch of metallic shimmer. Three new colors were released with the Bronzed Pink Collection and I tested out two in the shades Golden Pink and Bronzed Pink.

Golden Pink is a rosy pink color with touches of gold while Bronzed Pink is a chocolate metallic shade. Both shades will look smashing with your Summer tan. I enjoyed the formula of these as they slick on wonderfully and leave beautiful, glossy color on the lips without being heavy, sticky, or tacky.

Although the swatches are bit sheer I am happy to report on my lips they were quite pigmented. If you desire a lighter look simply swipe the balm across your lips once. If you prefer a darker look just layer the color on for a heavier pop of color!

I got so happy and hyper about the Metallic eye shadows that I completely forgot to look closely at them to see if I could pop them out and use them in the Bobbi Brown Custom Palettes. Well duh!

Anyway.

I got two shade selections to review for you. Bronzed Pink which is a dusty nude rose and Penny which is a light chocolate copper shade.

Both shades have a satiny metallic finish. Don’t confuse the look of metallic with shimmer as these have no heavy shimmer or glitter. They blend beautifully and pigmentation is excellent. You can go really heavy with these if you please or do a light color wash. I haven’t tried them wet and it doesn’t mention wetting them but I’m curious how they’d look if I attempted that!

Again my swatches came out very sheer but when you see my FOTD you’ll notice how pigmented these are considering what a heavy hand I used during application.

I decided to contrast the shades when I did my looks. I paired up Penny eye shadow with Golden Pink lip tint and Bronzed Pink eye shadow with Bronzed Pink lip tint. Instead of pairing up the bronze colors together and the pink colors together I mixed it up a bit. I also tried my hand at creating a bronzy look on my cheeks instead of my normal “blushing” pink cheeks I’m known for.

Below I am wearing Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow in Penny on my eyes and Bobbi Brown Tinted Lip Balm in Bronzed Pink on my lips.

Summer Collection 2008: Bobbi Brown Bronzed Pink Collection

untitled58

Guess what I got my hands on?

Some of Bobbi Brown’s brand new Summer Collection entitled Bronzed Pink! Excited? I know I am.

SUMBP l

My love affair with Bobbi Brown continues from the Spring into the Summer with this hot new collection!

I know, I know I’ve said I hate bronzers but I couldn’t help but get curious about Bobbi’s Bronzed Pink Collection. Seriously, just think about it, bronze and pink…a contradiction most gorgeous don’t you agree?

Anytime I’ve ventured into the scary world of bronzers I’ve always had the yearning to spice up my bronzing experience with a dash of pink and lucky for me Bobbi thought the same exact thing when she created this collection!

I admit I wasn’t brave enough to venture into actually purchasing the scary bronzing powders I seen with the collection but I did get the best of the lot of items introduced with two of the Metallic Eyeshadows and two of the Tinted Lip Balms and I’ll be testing them out for you shortly!

E4NE lE4A7 l

I’m thinking these shadows and the lip balms are going to rock out really well with the new love of my life, Urban Decay Baked Bronzer.

The promo images are simply divine and the model is glowing with health and such a natural look that I’m dying to dupe!

Sneak Peek of the review to come……………Yummie Bobbi goodies!

Bobbi Brown: Customize Your Own Palette

bbb1

If you follow me around Cozy you might have noticed I posted about these on the Bobbi Brown thread!

If not you got me babbling about them here on my blog!

These are an interesting concept and since my obsession with Bobbi Brown lately you know that I want to try these out but the price makes me cringe slightly!

First of all these are completely well thought out as the color selection is vast so it’s not a flash in the pan money making scheme. They actually considered this a while prior to releasing them. I love that they have a nice good array of color.

What are they?

Basically you’ll be purchasing an empty quad or trio which you can fill with any combination of blushes or eyeshadows of your own personal choice!

bbb4

bbb56

Items available are shimmer eyeshadows, shimmer blushes, and standard blushes and eyeshadows.

The shimmer shadows and blushes are of course something I am highly interested in trying out for myself!

At the moment there are at least 30 shades of shadow available. That number is without the shimmer shadows so the choices and variety are fantastic!

Price wise is where I am slightly raising my eyebrows. An empty quad or trio is $10 USD…mmm not too bad but nearly twice the amount of a standard MAC quad. Blushes are $22 USD each and Eyeshadows are $20 USD.

bbb3

bbb7

Break that down with a quad and you’re looking at say over $90 USD for one blush and three eyeshadows.

Bobbi I love you, I really love you but I don’t love a $90 palette!

Holy cow!

If you went the cheaper route and decided on a trio one blush and two eyeshadows would run you over $70 USD!

Wow.

As much as I am wanting these the price tag is just a tiny bit too high for the Muse!

Love ‘em, yes. Price Tag, not feeling it at all!

Want these?

Good deal?

Bad deal?

Bobbi Brown Moisturizing Cream Compact Foundation Review

My love for Bobbi knows no bounds lately. I’ve done a complete 180 and I’m the biggest fan Bobbi ever did have.

I can’t believe I went from bitchin’ how bad her products were (or at least some I tried) to how fantastic they are!

I guess I seriously didn’t give her stuff a chance because lately I’m an utter convert, fan, and lover.

I wanted to do a comparison review this week of Bobbi’s Cream Compact Foundation vs. MAC Moisture Blend Foundation. But since I splurged some cash on Bobbi’s Cream Compact I thought it would be a bit ridiculous and obscene of me to go buy some MAC Moisture Blend just to compare the two. I may still do so as I’m sick enough to go buy some out of the sake of curiosity but for now you’ll have to settle for my review of Bobbi’s Foundation.

Picture+248

First off I should mention I don’t need a face full of coverage. If I had to go around with an entire load of mineral powder on my face all day or a ton of liquid foundation on you might as well shoot me dead in the head Zombie style.

Seriously the idea of having all that on my face all day scares me. I guess there may very well be a bit of irony in that statement considering I pack on eye color like I’m going to a rave but hey eye color and tons of foundation are two very separate things people!

Secondly, it deserves to be mentioned that I have some serious dry skin going on due to the cold weather. I’m a combination skin that gets oily come Summer and dried out in the Winter so using a cream foundation is an absolute life saver during colder weather!

Bobbi Brown’s Cream Foundation promises flawless coverage, long wear, and relief for dry skin. Hey, I’m all over all three of those things!

Picture+257

I think this is actually made with a mature lady in mind that has drier skin, wrinkles, etc….however it’s relief for my dry skin.

I normally use a cream foundation anyway so I had no reason to adjust to this or learn how to use it etc…My normal foundation is the Morgen Schick Hide and Highlight palette which is something you have to pry out of my cold, dead hands one day but I will say that Bobbi’s Cream Foundation is slowly become a fast favorite that may very well end up topping my list soon!

The formula is extremely easy to blend and is highly moisturizing. I use Bobbi’s foundation brush to apply to the inner corner of my nose and blend slowly outwards. I apply a bit to the shadows around my chin and shadows found under my nose, above my lip line.

That’s it done.

Coverage is beautiful and as flawless as promised! It also happens to last about 7-8 hours without touch up which really makes me do cart wheels! Sweet! 8 hours of continuous wear? The Muse likey!

The compact has a sponge applicator it comes with as well which can be stored under the cream as it’s a flip top which makes for ease of touch ups during the day if you please.

It goes on wonderfully smooth and my skin is quite happy afterwards as it doesn’t flake up as a powder would. It just sinks in and creates a lovely canvas for my makeup!

I originally purchased Sand but it was way BEIGE! Holy cow! I swapped up for Porcelain and that’s perfect.

All in all definately worth my $40! I’m super happy with the results and the beautiful look of my skin when using this. If you have dry skin this is something you definately, sincerely need to try!

Do you use cream foundation?

Have you tried this?

Love Bobbi Brown?

Tried MAC’s Moisture Blend? The Muse is curious tell me about this!

Bobbi Brown Pink Satin Collection

Oh god I feel the force of the lemming hard this morning!

Have you seen this!?

E4TL l

I’m sitting here doing my best not to order this gorgeous, beautiful set. I’m breaking out into a cold sweat as the object of my lust stares back at me in all it’s virtual glory on my monitor!

I admit it.

I’m a slave to Bobbi Brown lately.

I’ve analyzed and done the math on this for the past five minutes deciding if it’s worth $140! Do I really need this at that obscene price?! Yes I do don’t I?

Seriously, I really loved the Metallics Collection and now having a Pink Metallic Palette is making me excited enough to spit.

Oh the struggle!

I think I’ll get it, no I won’t, yes I will!

Want it?

Absolutely need it like the Muse?
