Bobbi Brown Baby Pink & Berry Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Baby Pink Lip Color ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, pink beige with subtle warm undertones and a soft, pearly finish–not a satin but not a full-on frost. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy consistency that glided across lips without pulling or tugging. This shade lasted well for four hours. Flower Beauty Petal Kiss is pinker, more matte. Giorgio Armani Blush is pinker, less shimmery. Guerlain Mitsouko is sheerer. Chanel Gardenia is slightly pinker. Make Up For Ever #4 is darker, pinker, matte. See comparison swatches.

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette ($52.00 for 0.28 oz.) contains seven eyeshadows with five matte eyeshadows, one Shimmer Wash eyeshadow, and one Sparkle eyeshadow, plus a dual-ended brush all held in a glossy black palette. The matte eyeshadows are nicely pigmented and have a soft, smooth feel to them, though all of them were so soft that they had a tendency to also be somewhat powdery. The two shimmery shades were much less pigmented and had a drier, stiffer texture that made it difficult to pick up color–I really had to jab at the pan to get anything to loosen. Luckily, despite being somewhat powdery, the matte eyeshadows still wore well on the lid–they were not prone to fading as powdery eyeshadows sometimes can be. They lasted well for eight hours with very minor fading along the edges but no creasing. Unfortunately, when two of the seven eyeshadows are disappointing, it may make the whole palette a no-go. If you really love warm neutrals, though, you may still be tempted.

5 Seductive Plum-Hued Beauty Products to Try

One color I definitely associate with autumn is plum, so building on some of the recent lists, I thought I’d do one featuring some pretty plums today!

  1. theBalm Cabana Boy — a soft, muted plum with a luminous golden sheen for cheeks
  2. Zoya Mason — a warm, shimmery plum with a metallic finish for nails
  3. MAC Craving — a beautiful pinky-plum with a satiny finish for lips
  4. Chanel Merveille — a semi-opaque neutral plum with lots of shimmer for lips
  5. Bobbi Brown Naked Plum — a semi-sheer plum with cool undertones and pink and gold sparkle for lips

What are your top three favorite plum beauty products?

Bobbi Brown Golden Bronze & Sunlight Gold Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks

Bobbi Brown Golden Bronze Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep bronze sugar.” It’s a warm-toned, caramel bronze with pale bronze shimmer. It has a soft, frosted finish–not quite metallic but not just a frost. The consistency was very creamy and emollient–but in a way that didn’t feel too wet or take forever to set when applied to the lid, just in a way that made it apply smoothly and with rich, full color coverage. It sets fairly quickly, so you will want to make sure you work one eye at a time. MAC Brownluxe #4 is darker. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #4 is similar. Giorgio Armani #10 #4 is warmer. Le Metier de Beaute Autumn Rust is slightly darker. Bobbi Brown Bronze is similar. Urban Decay Deeper is similar. Chanel Promesse #3 is warmer. bareMinerals Ritzy is darker. See comparison swatches.
