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?

Well jump on ahead!

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

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

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?

These are a set of limited edition collector lipsticks that celebrate Lancome’s 75th Anniversary. The shades are available at Neiman Marcus and Saks if you’re lemming them.



The Body Shop Smoke & Fire Collection Review, Swatches, Photos The Body Shop Fall 2010

I can’t believe how deep we are into Fall already.  I feel like yesterday was Summer. Seriously, last week I had my AC on because it was so warm and this week I have my heat on because it’s so much cooler in the evening.

Nothing captured Fall this year for me like The Body Shop Smoke & Mirrors Collection. The face powder alone were enough to send me into fits of joy! Honestly, The Body Shop releases some killer limited edition sets and the new Smoke & Mirrors Collection for Fall 2010 happens to be one of this collections that has some incredible offerings that you should be hauling for a warm, Fall look.

With the Holidays in our face so incredibly quickly this year, it’s nice to step back and look at a bit of Fall.
