You know Bobbi Brown Glitter Balm failed to excite this Muse but she has absolutely no such feelings about Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Gloss!
This morning I whipped out my brand new Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Gloss in Disco Pink and started to boogie down baby!
I’m trying so hard to resist the 20% Off discount
and not get the other shades of this gloss as I loves it lots. Where as the balm had a crummy texture this succeeded in having a fab emollient formula that was slick, glossy, and shimmery! Yay
! It also happens to have wonderful pigmentation and I have no need to use a lipstick or stain prior to use! Slick on and beautiful glossy lips!
Although many of us hate dipping our fingers into pots and such, the Muse’s number one pet peeve there, I try to set aside my dislike and concentrate on the good things that the packaging has to offer like the fact it has a rather awesome dual cover. The compact sports a regular lid and a secondary clear lid to protect the gloss from ending up all over the upper lid, whoa did that make sense? Anyway, I’m sure you got it! Pretty cool right?
The shade I tried out is Disco Pink which by the very way has nothing pink going on with it…holy strange name Batman! But the good news is that I absolutely love the shade as it’s a beautiful brown based peach shade that looks stunning with warm corals, golds, and bronze looks! As I mentioned earlier the formula is quite emollient so the gloss gives your lips a nice slick look with a hint of fine gold shimmer that lends a festive feel to the gloss as it should considering it’s part of the Bobbi Brown Party Collection.

The Muse remembers the first time she purchased a cosmetic book. It had to be 10 years or so ago and it was entitled Your Makeover: Simple Ways for Any Woman to Look Her Best by Morgen Schick. The Muse is a big supporter of Morgen Schick and her amazing array of awesome cosmetics and her book was quite great at creating a flawless, natural look.
Recently the Muse was introduced to another makeup book which is the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual. The Muse finished this book in a day! I took it to bed with me one night and didn’t stop reading until it was completely done. Although much of what was discussed I already know I still felt like the book was an awesome manual for those who are just starting out in the cosmetic world.
The book covers many topics such as picking a moisturizer and foundation for your skin tone and type, how a good diet influences your skin and body, application of concealer, foundation, eye makeup, and more! The book has a solid index of just about everything you want or need to know about makeup and application. Granted, the book does contain the most basic (no complex application methods here just straight to the point) of information but this is actually what makes it so appealing as the simplicity of the techniques are easy to follow and understand! The book covers virtually all aspects of makeup but it also covers details such as photographer and becoming a makeup artist.
All in all it’s a rather interesting compilation of great tips and tricks! I think it’s well worth picking up if you’re a beginner to makeup application or you’re just seeking to brush up on your current skills!
I enjoyed it and I’m quite happy to have it on my bookshelf as I definately learned a thing or two after reading it!
You can nab yours from Amazon.com
Anyone read it or own it?

Bobbi Brown Party Collection
Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Collection really caught the Muse’s eye this season with the introduction of the beautiful Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick. Also released with this collection are brand new, limited edition Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Balms.
Of course the Muse is all about glitter so she must have some glittery lip balms for her lips! Sadly, after trying out these balms I’m somewhat on the fence if I actually like them! I tried the shade Copper Diamond which is a rich brown shade with gold shimmer. I did expect a gritty formula as per the name “glitter lip balm” but thankfully the formula is quite smooth and applies easily. Actually the formula is my main problem with the product, considering it’s a balm it applies as such so it has that slightly waxy feel to it and feels a bit heavy on the lips! In defense of the product you have to take into consideration the fact that it is a balm so it does have the texture of one. I guess I was feeling like it might be a bit more emollient and moisturizing on but that’s not the case. Some tugging and pulling is involved to get it to glide on smoothing but the good news is it is pigmented so one layer of product is plenty! I also wasn’t particularly thrilled with the color as it’s a chocolate brown that wasn’t too flattering on me and the other two shades released don’t look too much better to me so I honestly have no interest in purchasing another shade considering the formula is fab and the shades aren’t either.
All in all if you like the general texture of regular balms you might find this is a product you’ll absolutely love but the Muse wasn’t particularly excited about it after trying it on for size. I’ve had some great experiences with Bobbi Brown lately but the Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Balm gets a thumbs down for me this time around!
Have you tried these?
Not so much?

I got countless e-mails asking after the new Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Copper Diamond and honestly I can’t blame many of you for asking, “Muse, Muse, do I need it? How similiar is it to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Gold? Are you getting it?”
So here you go a reply and answer to all your many e-mails!
Yay! Trust your dear old Muse to answer all your questions about the Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick!
Good news my dears, Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond is vastly different when compared to Gold! Excited? I am as I was prepared to be disappointed when I seen Copper Diamond up close and personal but disappointed I was not!
The name is slightly misleading..Copper Diamond…mmmm I wouldn’t necessarily fit the shades in to the copper or the diamond category! For the most part the palette is a super beautiful combination of beiges, browns, and creams. The finish does have a slight copper sheen to it but very slight in my opinion and leans more towards a golden bronze. It’s difficult to explain but it’s beautiful is all you really need to know.
I took swatches of each shade:
I’ve never been a true fan of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks but somehow, someway I have collected my fair share of them over the course of a year or so. Along the way I also ended up from really not liking them that much to actually enjoying them quite alot, so much so that some shades have even replaced my beloved MAC Mineralized Skinfinish!
The evolution of the Bobbi Brown Holiday Shimmer Brick has been a rather nice ride for the Muse. Her first purchase was the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Gold which was quickly followed up by the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz from Holiday 2007 and finally I’m ringing in the start of Holiday 2008 with the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Copper Diamond. I’ve actually hauled out all three palettes and did close up shots and comparisons of all of them so you can see the differences for yourself. One of the major differences would be packaging of course. The packaging has evolved from the classic black Bobbi Brown compact featuring a beautiful gold border inside to a pink border the next year. Always after the compact remains black and modest even though each was a limited edition piece there was nothing super special about the packaging aside from that pretty border inside. Last year Bobbi ditched the simple black pox and replaced it with a shiny bronze pink metallic package that caught and held the Muse’s eye. Finally this year the packaging undergoes a major revamp and comes out shining like a brand new penny! The compact has gone from the simplicity of black to a stunning copper gold palette with a beautiful metallic face place displaying the Bobbi Brown brand name on top. When I originally seen the compact in photos it kind of resembled a cardboard compact but that’s not the case at all. The compact is actually a tiny bit bigger then a normal shimmer brick plus with it’s new clothes it’s quite the little stunner! I like that even during pressing economic times that Bobbi Brown took the initiative to create beautiful new packaging for a beautiful new limited edition product and kept the price at $40 USD!
Evolution of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Packaging
Do you need Copper Diamond? The Muse likes to think so. If you collect Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks you’re honestly going to want to purchase this one to add to your stash. If you’re thinking of purchasing one for the first time this is absolutely a great piece to start with. I really can’t help but Muse Approve it for purchase! If you were worried whether it was very like Gold rest assured it’s vastly different and just as beautiful.
It’s available now on Bobbi Brown’s website or your local counter.
The Muse loves it and thinks you will too!
