Bobbi Brown introduces her new Platinum Collection – a necessary indulgence for any Bobbi Brown fan!

bobbi+brown+platinum+pink+shimmer+brick Bobbi Browns New Platinum CollectionThe collection features the new limited-edition Platinum Pink Shimmer Brick which comes in a unique metallic silver finish and contains five bars of color that will beautifully highlight cheeks or anywhere you want to add shimmer. The shades included: soft pink, platinum, bright pink, golden coral and rose, can be blended together or used individually.

In addition to the Shimmer Brick, Bobbi also adds new shades to her line of ever popular Long Wear Cream Shadows, Shimmer Lip Glosses and Lip Glosses that reflect this spring’s trend of strong and smoky eyes and glossy, high-shine lips.

Bobbi also introduces her new, limited-edition Shimmering Body Oil which is infused with pink and platinum pearls. Perfect for giving skin a radiant glow, the oil also moisturizes and conditions with a blend of essential oils. Lightly fragranced, the Shimmering Body Oil features a sneak peek of Bobbi’s Party, a new fragrance that will debut Holiday 2009!

MAC Dazzleglass Permanent Collection Coming Soon!

mac+dazzleglass1 MAC Dazzleglass Permanent Collection Coming Soon!
Wednesday, I was in heaven. And no, I’m not using the word heaven metaphorically. I was really in heaven. The real deal…because I can’t imagine the afterlife being much better than the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Beauty Awards Product Demonstration. Nearly 600 new products from more than 280 brands were on display at the Metropolitan Pavilion and Altman Building in NYC – for attendees to touch, test, and take home.

I was having such a fabulous time that I was tempted to blow off my 8pm train back to Philly. Seriously, it was better than my fantasy of being “accidentally” locked in a Sephora overnight. And you should see the gift bag that they gave out at the end. It’s unbelievable (and it weighed, like, 20 pounds). Don’t hate. Appreciate.

The best part of CEW was learning about – and testing – products that haven’t been released yet, such as MAC’s upcoming Dazzleglass Collection.

By popular demand, MAC is creating a permanent collection of these brilliant glosses – to be released next month. I am particularly enamored with three nude/caramel-y shades that are so succulent, I need them in my life right now. Yesterday even. Here’s hoping this collection has an early March launch date, because I am in dire need of some Dazzleglass. Mama needs her MAC medicine, okaaaay?

HIP Color Presso: Spoiled Pretty Is Not ImPressed

hip colore presso in snazzy HIP Color Presso: Spoiled Pretty Is Not ImPressedI really wanted to love the new HIP Color Presso lipglosses from L’Oreal Paris. I really did. Unfortunately, I can’t think of one reason to recommend this product to all of you.

The concept is great…a duo of glosses that blend together to create an infinite array of shades. But a cool concept can’t redeem a mediocre product. First of all, the odd packaging feels and looks cheap…and it’s got this little loop at the top that I just don’t get. It’s as if L’Oreal designed it so that you could put it on your key ring…or hang it on your Christmas Tree.

Secondly, you have to squeeze the lipgloss chambers to dispense the product onto the applicator; I was expecting a dial or button…so having to squeeze the two tubes simultaneously just upped the cheap factor. Finally, the color (I have Snazzy) was just okay. Nothing to write home about. In fact, I kinda loathed the honeydew melon half of the twosome. So if I continue to use my Color Presso, I’ll probably just end up wearing the other shade by itself. Furthermore, Color Presso costs $13. Personally, I wouldn’t pay half that for this lipgloss.

The product smells and wears exactly like HIP Jelly Balms, which I absolutely adore. So do yourself a favor – if you were contemplating a Color Presso purchase, just buy a Jelly Balm instead.

The Love Set by NARS: Exclusively at Sephora

nars+the+love+set The Love Set by NARS: Exclusively at Sephora
Let’s be honest. Most Valentine’s Day gift sets are a little gimmicky. We’re in a recession – so buying a bunch of products that you’re not in love with doesn’t make much sense. If it wouldn’t set your pulse racing a month from now, set it down. Am I right?

Which brings me to The Love Set by NARS – a gift set so loveable, you don’t need a commercialized holiday to justify this purchase. This assortment of flirtatious hues help you achieve that coveted after-glow:

Pillow Talk Lip Gloss
The unique, semi-sheer formulation provides serious shine and imparts a warm azalea pink hue. May be worn alone or atop any lipstick for a perfectly sexy pout.

Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
Combining the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick, this rich, pink-mauve lip pencil provides a matte, creamy finish that will last for hours.

Orgasm Blush
This cult classic makes cheeks blush a perfect pinky-peach flush and subtly highlights with accents of golden shimmer.

Available exclusively at Sephora, this limited edition set is $49 (a $73 value).

Crushing On Bobbi Brown’s New Blushed Pink Collection

Bobbi+Brown+Blushed+Pink Crushing On Bobbi Browns New Blushed Pink Collection
Here’s a little secret: I don’t typically wear makeup during the work week. Call me a hypocrite if you want to. But if it’s a choice between ten extra minutes of sleep and a pretty face – well, I choose unconsciousness.

Though, I recently acquired a new makeup collection that has me rethinking my routine. Bobbi Brown’s Blushed Pink collection is so brilliant, literally, that I can’t not wear it. I am so enchanted by the products that I’ve even set my alarm a few minutes early. This is major.

bobbi+brown+Sparkle+Eye+Shadow Crushing On Bobbi Browns New Blushed Pink CollectionOnly Bobbi Brown could figure out a way to make sparkly shadow and glittery lipgloss appear office-appropriate, romantic, and chic – all at the same time. You will absolutely DIE when you see (and touch and apply) Bobbi’s new Sparkle Eye Shadow. The featherweight formula instantly lights up eyes with a unique combination of shimmering pearls and glitter in a translucent base. Wear it alone for a sheer wash of sparkles or layer over an opaque shadow to give the eye depth and texture.

I’ve tried a million and one eye shadows in my lengthy tenure as a beauty addict; and I have NEVER experienced a shadow that is simultaneously shimmering and subtle. I don’t really have the words to describe this product’s magic. You’ll just have to see it to believe it. Visit your local Bobbi Brown counter and play around with the Sparkle Eye Shadows (I’m partial to Mica), but be sure to bring some spending money because you won’t be able to leave without taking home a piece of this collection.

And while you’re at it, check out the new Lip Compacts that Bobbi created to complement the season’s soft, sparkly eye. All three shades are gorgeous, but Baby Glitter Lip Gloss is simply divine!

Blushed Pink is limited-edition, so don’t think about buying this collection. Do it. Do it now. As I type this, like-minded beauty addicts are depleting the supply. Get yours before it’s gone.

Blushed Pink is available at all Bobbi Brown counters and at bobbibrown.com.
