Bobbi Brown Marrakesh Chic Fall 2011 Collection

Here she is…what we’ve all been waiting for…

Bobbi Brown Marrakesh Chic Fall 2011 Collection!

Everyone squeal.



A few years ago, Bobbi traveled to Morocco for a week-long bike tour, which took her from the Atlas Mountains to the coastal plains. Bobbi’s first stop was a marketplace in Marrakesh, where there was no shortage of color. Jars filled with saturated pigments, mounds of fabric in the most vibrant hues, burlap sacks of anise, cumin and turmeric spices, and antique woven kilim rugs in beautifully weathered colors overwhelmed the senses. Moved by the sights and smells, Bobbi returned home with endless inspiration for what is now the Fall 2011 Collection. Featuring intensely pigmented colors, this collection is designed to be smudged, swiped or blotted to create a stained look that’s fresh and wearable.

Bobbi Brown Rich Color Eye Shadow $24
This innovative creamy powder blends onto lids like a cream and builds easily to a super rich shadow with smooth, long-wearing finish. A highly pigmented formula delivers intense color and incredibly comfortable wear with a unique adherence technology that feels lightweight but is super long lasting. The shadows stay color-true and doesn’t crease or smudge for up to 12 hours. An innovative soft press technology allows the natural waxes in the formula to melt into the powder, giving the shadow its unique creamy feel. Together, the formula and the exclusive pressing technique combine to create an elastic, second skin finish that goes onto the lids with advanced adherence.

Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color SPF 12 $23

This creamy and emollient lipstick also moisturizes and conditions lips as it protects with SPF 12.

Bobbi Brown Metallic Lip Color (LE) $23
The newest discovery in shimmer. Metallic Lip Color features a unique combination of high-shine emollients and light-reflective pearls. The result is multi-dimensional shimmer that has a soft and creamy feel with medium coverage.


  • Violet Glaze

Bobbi’s original creamy-matte lipstick formula goes on smoothly and offers full coverage. It’s made with a unique blend of Beeswax and Vitamins E and C to moisturize and protect lips throughout the day.

This innovative lip product combines rich color with comfortable, long-lasting wear and shine. With emollient shea butter and plant-derived skin conditioners, this amazing formula glides on smooth and leaves lips soft and moisturized.

I think it’s a given everyone is excited about the addition of the new Rich Color Eye Shadows. These will indeed fit in Bobbi’s regular palette pans by the way! I wasn’t expecting so many new additions to her lipstick collection…Desert Rose sounds intriguing…

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.

    I know it’s Bobbi Brown we’re talking about and subdued would be an understatement but even so this is not Marrakesh to me. I like plenty of BB products but certain places just aren’t “Bobbi Friendly”, like Rio de Janeiro, Bombay or Marrakesh. The tortoise shell collection made a lot of sense given her oeuvre- but spicy, textural feasts for the senses? No way! She’d overload!

    Swatched all of them about a week ago and was very disappointed. The sales associate (who I know fairly well) was less than overjoyed at this group of shadows. The formulation is not what it’s supposed to be. But the lipsticks are great. The Rich Lip Color in Desert Rose is the one I walked away with. It’s probablyl the one on the gorgeous model.

    I bought the darker Tortoise Shell palette and love it, so this “collection” was a bit of a letdown. Oh well, more money for . . . Dior?!

    I’m not a fan of this collection to be honest after seeing it in person this weekend. The holiday collection on the other hand is going to requrie a major haul from me – especially that ruby sparkle eyeshadow quad!

      • VP

        Hey Muse! One of the associates let me see a tester. If you remember the sparkle eyeshadow singles Bobbi released last year (the charcoal collection), they are about as sparkly as that. A lot softer and easier to work with. The quad is gorge Muse! You’ll have to pre order one like I did!

        • the Muse

          awesome I’m looking forward to trying. I believe I might have some testers arriving today!

    • Majick

      yes YES! RUby Sparkle … do tell…

      (yes, I’m slowly converting Muse LOL)

  • telle

    i will pass on the shadows, but the violet glaze lipstick sounds phenomenal!

  • Majick

    I would love to compare in person but this really reminds me of Smashbox’s Bloom palette.

  • Laura

    YOu know what’s weird? I JUST bought BB fall collection from last year (Denim & Roses) on Ebay. I liked last year’s fall so much better then this year

    • the Muse

      aw don’t say that laura. The tortoise shell collection was amazing!!
