Bobbi Brown Thread

The Bobbi Brown thread.  Bobbi Brown was the first brand that got me excited about makeup.  So I'll always have a soft spot for BB.  And now Sephora has the amazing 25 year year palette.

Note, the holiday lip shade is sold out on Nordstrom.  I'm going to be watching for it on Sephora's site.

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@meganlisa, I want to be honest when I give my opinions about products, taking into consideration that everyone's needs are different.

I purchased the University Lip Palette last year, and promptly sent it back.  The quality of the lipsticks is not the same as the ones that come in the tube.  Very waxy and not smooth.  They even smelled differently.  Maybe I got a dud, but I have found that more often than not the palettes that manufacturers put out do not match the quality of their individual items.

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@Ispend2much6 I tend to be pretty honest too and, if I offend someone, well it is just my opinion.

I normally avoid lip palettes (like the plague) though I did just order a Cle de Peau one (so pretty).

I'm going to see if I can use my BB code on this...and hope that it's on the site before it expires.  If not, I'll get something else.

Thanks for the honesty!!!

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

A lot of these shades should be in the Bobbi Brown University lip palette ($60). It's one i go back to regularly.

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

Oh, wow!  Her lipsticks are my favorite of her products!

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@DaintyDiva This does interest me.  That is a lovely set.  Not sure I can justify it (do I have any Nordstrom notes hanging around?) but I still remember the original BB line and this makes me nostalgic.  

Are you getting it?

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@meganlisa no... but I think it's beautiful, it would make a nice gift.

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

Oh no :0  not another anaversery lip set.....so many lip sets...

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@meganlisa  Just so you know the vouchers expire October 9.

I don't have enough points for the BB reward, so I'm hoping for Hourglass. 

I did have a giftcard to Bloomie's, so I'm expecting the Union Jack eyeliner any day now.  Since I wear mostly neutral eyeshadows, I really like the idea of wearing more daring eyeliners.  I can always pare it down by applying it on top of a black liquid liner if need be.  Love that trick!

And, I'm thinking that it will match well with YSL's Faux Cils mascara in blue.  I like to add that on top of black mascara, but just from the underside of the base of my top lashes to halfway up the lashes.  I think it adds a brightening effect without being too much (I like subtle makeup.)  Sorry for writing a novel!

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@Ispend2much6 I like more subtle makeup too. Occasionally I go a little wild but mostly it's more muted.  When busy, easy and natural (idiot proof) looks save me.

I totally get your point on mixing the bright eyeliners/mascaras/black.  What a great idea!  I have a bright shu uemura I don't wear often and i should try it with a black liner.

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

It's not my idea; I actually got it from Trish McEvoy (not Trish herself, from a video or one of her kits.)  In case you thought we would just be hanging out one day, talking about makeup. Smiley Wink

I was too lazy to even do easy makeup last weekend and I went to return a Lancome (gasp!) lipstick.  I was in very casual clothing, no eyebrows enhanced, hair wild, and lashes not showing very well.

The cashier suggested that I might like Butter London because it was a good lipstick and it doesn't cost a lot of money like Lancome!

Maybe she was trying to be helpful, but I do wonder if I just looked like I couldn't afford Lancome.  The power of makeup... 

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@Ispend2much6 People treat us differently based on what we wear.  It's such a sad reality but is so true.  I'm So California based so it's especially true here.  What amazes me is that if I head to Beverly Hills and Rodeo drive they always treat me well...regardless of how I'm dressed...because it's the Disneyland of shopping and they act accordingly.

I'm going to try your Trish tip!

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

That is surprising!  What you say is true.

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

Hi meganlisa,

 

What a great idea to start a Bobbi thread! I too have a soft spot for the brand. I just loved those rectangular shimmer brick palettes and would ask for them for bday gifts back in the day Smiley Happy 

 

I love these Shimmer Bricks we have on the site now and I loved using the Illuminating Bronzing Powder over the summer.

 

Anyways, thanks for posting!

 

Best,

Mali

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@MaliBT I have the shimmer bricks palette in my loves and will likely be buying it very soon.  Such a steal.  There were so many things on the site so fast, deciding got tough.  But it just might be a must have.

Bobbi Brown was the first brand that really got me buying makeup.  I was so new to looking polished and I remember walking away with the taupe eyeshadow, brown and nude lipsticks, pink blush and that foundation stick.  Then I moved on to bronzer and a shimmer lipstick (raspberry, different than the raspberry today).  Beach is still a favorite scent and I never run out.

Seems like the brand deserves it's own thread!

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

I don't own a single shimmer brick and I am definately eyeing up this one! I can't decide between this and the Laura Mercier..decisions decisions.

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

I have my eyes on this. Hopefully it is still around during Nov sale.

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@blackkitty2014 That's my plan too!  I'm hoping it lasts long enough for the sale.  Great deal but still expensive.

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@meganlisa, I picked up the palette during the in-store Rouge event but have not touched it yet.  It's so sad that I don't want to mess up the pretty shimmers by swirling a brush in it. 😞 I'll use it eventually...probably when I'm done staring at it (maybe Christmas?).

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@angelKiss24 If you do swirl I'd love to hear your thoughts.  Must have?  I can totally understand why you don't want to touch it.  So lovely!

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@meganlisa

 

Totally! I love it. Yeah purchases can definitely be hard to decide. I might need to get the Bobbi To Glow Smiley Happy I don't have that yet! 

 

Best,

Mali

Re: Bobbi Brown Thread

@MaliBT The palette will be mine...I just might wait until the VIB sale, hoping it lasts.  So many lovelies lately!
