Bobbi Brown Crystal Eye Palette Review and Swatches

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!

Bobbi Brown Pink & Gold Lip Palette Review and Swatches

Hey Bobbi!

Totally digging on the new packaging on your compacts for Holiday 2010. Is this what we can expect from all upcoming releases? So chic, so ivy league! Loves it dear.

What do you think of the new compacts? I really love it. Don’t get me wrong the old standard black compacts were nice enough but I kinda dig the Bobbi Brown emblem on the Holiday items. I purchased the Eye Couture Collection and it also sported this packaging so I’m kinda hopeful they might stick with the theme for new compacts released in 2011.

Anyway, ’nuff babbling ’bout that! Betcha wanna hear all about the new Bobbi Brown Pink & Gold Lip Palette released with the Bobbi Brown Holiday Collection 2010 dontcha?

E.L.F. Essentials Eyes Get The Look Bombshell Brown Review and Swatches

E.L.F. Essentials Eyes Get The Look Bombshell Brown 17

E.L.F. Cosmetics has several new kits which feature a smoky eye theme for $5. The kits include everything you need to create the perfect traditional smoky eye look (black) or a brown smoky eye.

The sets each include:

  • E.L.F. Eyeshadow Trio
  • E.L.F. Brightening Eyeliner
  • E.L.F. Mechanical Eye Lash Curler
  • E.L.F. Professional Eye Shadow Brush
  • E.L.F. Lengthening & Defining Mascara

E.L.F. Essentials Eyes Get The Look Bombshell Brown 19

E.L.F. Essentials Eyes Get The Look Bombshell Brown 18

At $5 you’re paying a buck each per an item in the set. Not bad eh? I do find E.L.F. products hit or miss in most cases but I still like to try things out to see what might be a winner and what might be a big old FAIL.

I purchased the E.L.F. Essentials Eyes Get The Look Bombshell Brown because I’m really into smoky brown looks lately thanks to the Urban Decay Naked Palette plus it seems interesting enough for my Beauty on a Budget category.

Was it worth it?

Check it out!
