Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Beauty Kit Nordstrom Exclusive

I dunno how many times you’ve seen the Exorcist but I’ve personally seen it enough to be embarrassed about the times I’ve sat, mouth hanging open, watching it from the comfort of my bed with a pillow gripped under my neck.

Jason Miller is one of my fav retro actors and I absolutely love scenes with him and his dear old mum saying “Dimmy, why you do this to me?”

At first it was creepy as hell but after seeing the film so many times it makes me laugh like crazy.



Upon seeing the new Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Collection for Fall 2011 I couldn’t help but mentally put on an accent and say to myself, “Why Bobbi? Why you do this to me Bobbi?”

Perhaps I should do a recording of myself for you as I do a mean mama Karras accent!

Anyway, I’m whispering it to myself again with the new Nordstrom Exclusive the Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Beauty Kit available during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Take a look!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    God, that film The Exorcist !
    Back in the dark ages when I was a little lass, my mother and father said if I ever watched that film it would turn me into a mental patient.
    I believed them, as when you’re little you believe every word your parents say.
    I was truly petrified in case I ever unwittingly saw some of it and knew I’d never watch it.
    The Carlow Lunatic Asylum was only 50 yards away at the end of our road and I seriously could see myself being incarcerated in that place. Scary place.
    But then we all grow up and we don’t believe everything our parents tell us.
    Needless to say I’ve seen it a few times and am perfectly sane (most days). Hehe !

    I’m safe on this one; I did the QVC on AD and I’m still wondering whether it’s worth keeping. I love the blushes and the brush, the eye shadows look nice but they are certainly not my favorites (too much work for too little payoff). And, am I mistaken that the little brush in the eyeshadow kit went from a decent size to a toothpick in this kit? Maybe I just don’t remember what the older one I had looked like but I thought it was more substantial.

    I know we all have different strokes so anyone who’s getting this I hope it’s “da bomb” for you. 🙂
