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!

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.

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?

MAC Dazzleglass

dazzleglass 390

Tis here ladies!

MAC Dazzleglass is live and kicking on the MAC website! Click!

Each gloss is $16.50 USD which is about $2.50 higher than a normal lipglass. I obviously have too much time on my hands because I noticed that a standard Lipglass is 4.8g/0.17oz and Dazzleglasses are 1.92g/0.06oz. Interesting that they appear bigger but obviously the content inside is not plus the price is higher hmmm!

MACH 261

But!

I forgive MAC as these look splendid to me! Despite warnings of stickiness and a few poor reviews I’ll be racing out to buy a few of these today!

How about you?

Want ‘em?

Love ‘em?

Not into ‘em?

Lavshuca Summer Collection 2008

untitled222

Lavshuca has updated it’s website with the Summer Collection!

It appears this Summer they are releasing two new palettes similar in style to the Holiday Palettes however these appear far better quality. Each palette seems to hold six eyeshadow shades. These come in two variations a cooler version which include blues, silvers, and greens and a warmer version which include golds, browns, and beiges. Both look simply gorgeous. Although I am missing the normal style of palettes released from Lavshuca I’m really not minding these at all! They are most definately in my cart for purchase when they are released!

The Holiday Palettes were made of cardboard and these appear to be made of either plastic or metal (I’d say plastic) which is nice as I found the Holiday Palettes a bit delicate!

I’m unsure of the price at this point as Kanebo has not yet updated the catalog with the info but as soon as I know I’ll pass it on to you!

I can’t wait to get my hands on these! These are simply beautiful and I’m positive if you’re a Lavshuca fan you’ll want them as much as me!

Want ‘em?

Love ‘em?

Tell the Muse!

Majorca Majolica’s website has been updated with the brand new Summer Collection. The theme for the Collection is Miss Treasure Hunter.

You have to use your arrow keys on your keyboard to “walk” through the scenes of the website and find the hidden clues of the Collection!

A-ha I’ve found something! The following look is created using some of the items from the brand new Collection! It’s very Summery with gold and bright orange on the eye area! Take note that the model is also wearing the latest version of Majorca Majolica’s Mascara!

The new mascara is a burnt orange color and appears to go very well with golds! I’m very eager to get my hands on it!

The Collection also includes three new nail varnishes in orange, silver, and blue colors!

And finally a shimmering loose powder in a beautiful burnt orange color that will go perfectly with the new version of the mascara!

Although small the Collection appears to pack a nice punch! I’m looking forward to getting both the mascara and the loose powder!
