Bobbi Brown Holiday: Choose Your Glam

20 Oct

So today I spotted the holiday collection at Nordstrom, not the gift collection. So the theme is “Choose your glam” and centers around red lip color including glosses, liner and lipsticks and eye palettes and glitter eye liner. The eye palettes include the smoky, sultry and smoldering palettes mentioned in my previous post. I swatched the eye paints and I really those shades, they are really intensely pigmented, sparkly yet not sheer like the sparkly eyeshadow or not quite shimmery like the metallics. KarlaSugar has the goods with swatches and photos of the counter display.

Mini Bobbi Brights Eye Palette Available

13 Oct

Holiday 2010 is upon us already including the internet rumored Mini Bobbi Brights Eye Palette, which is available on bobbibrowncosmetics.com. This is a mini version of the Bobbi Brights Eye Palette (my all time favorite eye palette), it has only 20 shades compared to the 35 in the original. Several of  the shades are very gemstone-like. This palette is part of the very glam and luxurious holiday 2010 collection.

Check out the other holiday offerings at Nordstroms.com. They include a travel case, eye palettes, a lip gloss trio and lip palettes. Some retailer exclusive items include brush sets and the Neiman Marcus trunk (my annual fantasy item). Even QVC has the Sparkle Glamour Quad.

Also check out HelloBeauty for a full rundown on the items that are available at Nordstrom. Update: The Muse has a review of the Crystal Eye Palette, with swatches and pictures click here.

What I am really lusting over are the holiday palettes on the bobbi UK site. Every season there is something that is only available in the UK that makes me drool. I was happy to find that many of those items on the UK site are available at Neiman Marcus, including the Eye Couture Palette with brushes and the Modern Classic Eye and Lip Set. Additionally Neiman’s has 3 other eye palettes that no one else has, based upon themes: Sultry, Smokey and Smoldering. This new eye palettes include a new items, “long wear eye paints”. All of the shades with the exceptions of the “eye paints” we have seen before. ¬†Additionally, there is a glitter eye liner pen that is exclusive to Neimans also. See photos below for photos of exclusive items.

What’s new? a lot for paletteholics! I’ll post and update with a list of all the shades soon.
