Bobbi’s ANTIGUA PALETTE

22 May

More on National Makeover day…this palette was featured during the primetime 7 p.m. show Thursday for QVC National Makeover Day. I noticed the Antigua Palette which was previously unavailable in the US,  and only in the UK at the Bobbi UK site. After checking the Bobbi site Thursday it is also available there. This looks like a great summer palette if you don’t have the eyeshadow shades or lip colors, the Antigua illuminating bronzer is a great shade as shown on the model above. I believe the Oat shade is one that is exclusive to this palette. The models looks great in this palette. I’m always so inspired by the looks she puts on the models when she’s on QVC.

Shades include:
Navajo Eye Shadow, Oat Eye Shadow, Caviar Eye Shadow
Antigua Illuminating Bronzer
Kitten Creamy Lip Color, Pink Ballet Creamy Lip Color, Azalea Metallic Lip Color

***Lots of other items added to the QVC inventory including skin care which was featured during the prime time show.

Bobbi @ QVC for National Makeover Day

20 May

With the backdrop of her Pretty Powerful Bobbi introduced several products to the QVC audience today. Some items are exclusive to QVC like the TSV (Today’s Special Value) the Downtown Beauty Collection. The host made it clear that this would be the one time a Bobbi Brown beauty product would be a TSV this year.

Bobbi demonstrated how she would use collection and its contents on various models with different skin tones. This kit is a great starter collection for Bobbi new-comers and a nice addition to long time Bobbi fan-addicts. I am very stingy when it comes to buying palettes because I have so many already so I make sure there are enough shades in the palettes that I don’t have and think I will use.

Items introduced to QVC:

Lip Treament-this is a recently released product with is exactly what the title says a lip treatment with more color than a gloss but not the same staying power as lip-stick.

Bahama Bronze 2 piece collection-this includes an illuminating bronzer in “Bahama”, a lip glaze in “Gold Coast ” (not featured at the Bobbi site) and a mini bronzer brush

Items previously on air:

Eyeliner Duo-this was today’s Hot Pick and featured new color combinations, it also includes a brush.

Face Palette with mini concealer brush

These items were in the 2-3 p.m. show.

Earlier in the day (during a midnight show) she introduced the Tawny Shimmer Brick. It’s not a new shade and had previously been discontinued. This is great if you missed out on it like I did. I loooove the Tawny blush so I will definitely scoop this up since I missed so many opportunities in the past to get it.

Other items featured:

Cabana Corals Palette– that became available stateside in March at select retailers and online at bobbibrowncosmetics.com. This is great because there is video available about how she would use this palette. I love the Cabana Corals Collection, which you can tell by previous posts. Its my favorite since the Mauve Collection of fall 2008.

Lip Crayon Trio

The TSV, eye liner duo and concealer palette were also featured during the midnight show.

I am so excited because she is featured as the “Today’s Special Value” I got a preview email this morning for a special kit that is on auto-delivery and easy-pay. Click here for the link to the “Today’s Special Value”, it’s called the Bobbi Brown Downtown Beauty 6-piece Color Collection. If you choose the auto-delivery option you will receive a second kit in October featuring new fall shades. Of course being a “fanaddict” I scooped it up, the easy-pay option is sooo dangerous.
