  1. I always find it hard to to choose between “love it” or “leave it” with an entire collections since there are always a few things I absolutely love (at first glance, anyway) and others I wouldn’t take even if they were free. That reminds me, Christine….sometimes (often, it seems) when I “love it” or “leave it”, when I come back to the page, my “vote” still isn’t holding and I get to choose again and again and again. I am showing as logged in. I don’t understand it…

    • Hey Mariella,

      The vote is holding – and when you click to vote again, it’s not registering your vote – it’s showing you the result but you’re not able to vote again. It’s one of the longest taking queries our page was making – basically having 40 some-odd love it/leave its checking if you voted or not every time you loaded the page = server meltdown.

    I like the idea behind the image (very festive) but the model looks like a creepily realistic mannequin rather than just an overly photoshopped person.

    • LOL yeah, that’s Katie Holmes. I don’t understand why they even use a gorgeous (and I imagine expensive) model if they’re going to photoshop until she’s barely recognizable. *rolls eyes*

      • I disagree. If I were married to crazy for that long I think I’d deserve a little Photoshopping. NAY! It would be my right to look flawless! 😉

        P.S. I’m being suckered in by some of those products and I don’t usually turn my head to peek back at Bobbi Brown so… that’s interesting.

  3. Keen AS for this collection, so suits my aesthetic right now :) I went old Hollywood for my partners work ball this month, deep red lipstick, side-swept softly waved hair :) love it!!

  4. Erica

    WOW, only one word: Photoshop! Katie is such a natural beauty, don’t know why they have to destroy it w/ so much Photoshop…

  5. Stephanie

    i’m loving those nail polishes!

  6. Belinda

    Weird that an Old Hollywood collection wouldn’t include a matte red lipstick.

    • xamyx

      And yet, that’s what is shown in the promo pic, LOL! The main reason I even continued reading this post was because of her lips, and I was curious about that one product! I could care less about Photoshopping, eyelash extensions, too-skinny models, etc., but at *least* use the actual colors in the ads…

      • Belinda

        lol, I continued reading the post too because I wanted to know what she was wearing on her lips. What a let down!

        • thathatlady

          The lipstick she is wearing is a matte true red called Hollywood Red. I don’t think this blog mentioned it. I have it on now and it is just like the picture. I believe it is still available. If not, there Is eBay.

  7. YAY! Shimmers + bobbi brown = I love!

  8. She doesn’t even look like Katie Holmes! Like a scary Mattell version!

  9. New shades of High Shimmer Lip Gloss? Oh, yes! 😀 I wonder how Pure Gold compares to Canary, they look similar.

  10. Cat

    The High Shimmer Lipgloss ones!! Will have to check those out!

  11. This entire collection looks amazing and very festive!

  12. Dana

    I’m looking forward to all of Bobbi’s winter/holiday collections — really love the promo photo too, even though she’s photoshopped to kingdom come and back — it’s classy, regal, and she does look stunning!

  13. Brenda

    I love the idea and combination of colours, very festive feeling and I LOVE Old Hollywood – but honestly don’t see anything all that unique. I’m sure I’m able to recreate this with what I already have. And as someone mentioned already – a little less photo-shopping on Katie, please.

  14. That red lipstick is gorgeous, but I wonder if it’s more money this time around for being part of a special collection…

  15. Clare

    The centerpiece here looks to be the eyeshadow palette. So why is the promo spotlighting what looks to be a (gorgeous) matte red lipstick, and almost no eyeshadow? There’s no way the red lipgloss can produce that look, right?

  16. Could they have possibly whited out Katie Holmes any further. I love pale skin, but they’ve made her look positively scarily anemic. She’s a gorgeous woman, but I hate what they have done with her for this campaign.

  17. I want to check out the palette. Also, I wonder what color she’s wearing on her lips. It’s gorgeous!

    • Hunter

      She’s wearing Hollywood! For some reason this press release didn’t mention it but if you go look at the display in the store it’s what they are featuring. It’s on the BB website too.

  18. Al

    Where is the matte red lipstick in the promo?! :(

  19. Celine

    Wow, I almost didn’t recognize that was Katie at first, she looks great! I’m so into this collection.

  20. Caroline

    The eyeshadow palette certainly looks interesting, but the price tag makes my wallet go ‘ouch!’ I wonder whether I have similar colours in my repertoire already, as they look fairly dupable.

  21. Caroline

    Christine, will you be reviewing/swatching the Old Hollywood Eye Palette?

    • Right now, I don’t have it! I’m not sure if I will receive or not or when – I just received some of the other holiday palettes from Bobbi Brown that I’m hoping to get to this week.
