Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick ($38.00) According to Bobbi Brown, there are five shades found within this shimmer brick: Candlelight, Gold, Copper, Beige, and Sand. I like the subtle glow it gave me; it’s very subtle, not too much color–more of a shimmer, highlighting effect. Some shimmer bricks give more color than others, but I’ve always liked the shimmer they’ve given, regardless of actual color (since I still consider these highlighters rather than blushes!). Copper Diamond is probably more suitable for warm-tones, just because it’s so warm itself. I still think cooler skin tones will enjoy this shimmer brick, because it won’t bronze you in a fake, orange kind of way.
Copper Diamond Glitter Lip Balm ($19.00) is a very subtle and sheer lip balm. It’s not sticky or tacky; it barely went on for me, to be honest. I saw a hint of shimmer/glitter on my lips, but the color itself was minimal. I haven’t tried the other shades, so perhaps those are more pigmented–otherwise, I’d skip these and head straight for the new, limited edition glitter lip gloss (the ones in the compact).
Glitz Metallic Eyeshadow ($20.00) is a new shade to the line’s existing metallic eyeshadows. The metallic eyeshadows have a more–you guessed it–metallic finish. I find they’re shimmery/frosty finishes, some of them do seem more metallic than others, though. Glitz itself is a soft, pale yellow-gold that goes on with a nice dose of shimmer and glitz (ha!). I think it’s a great shade for the holidays, as it’s a great all-over lid color to match with festive holiday-red lips! Oh, by the way? While they’re sold in their individual compacts, you can always pop ‘em out and put them in Bobbi Brown’s customizable palettes. Depotting without the hassle that comes alogn with MAC pots–awesome.
Ball Glitter Lip Gloss ($19.00) is actually my favorite product from the two collections. It’s a thick, semi-tacky gloss that is full of glittery bits with decent color. I picked up Ball, which gives lips some warmth and golden shimmer. It’s a great gloss over reds, especially a red like MAC’s Port Red, because of the lipstick’s subtle gold shimmer.

Long-Wear Cream Shadow ($22.00) If you’re looking for a good base by Bobbi Brown, try one of her long-wear cream shadows. Available in a nice range of colors, you’re bound to find one that can amp up your favorite shadows.
This innovative, long-wearing formula goes on comfortably and has a soft, velvety finish. Plus, it stays on, doesn’t crease, and maintains its true color. Apply with fingers or the Cream Shadow Brush (sold separately).
Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($21.00) Gel liners are fab for getting precise lines without the trials of liquid liner. This liner is indeed long-wearing; don’t worry about touching up or fading throughout the day.
Shimmer Brick Compact ($38.00) Bobbi is most definitely known for her shimmer bricks! They come in several varieties and shades, and you never know when a new one will show up. Depending on the shimmer brick and the skin tone it’s being applied to, they can act as highlighters, bronzers, or blushers.
Basic Eye Palette ($45.00) If you like easy, no-fuss-no-muss palettes for your eyeshadows (or lipsticks!), Bobbi has you covered. The Basic Eye Palette is just one of many available palettes. Throughout the year, the brand regularly releases limited edition palettes to coordinate with their launches.
The Best Of… series is designed to introduce some of the best products offered by the brand. If you’ve ever wanted to try the brand, these are products worth meeting for the first time.

Bobbi Brown’s Night Sky Long-Wear Eye Palette ($55.00) is offered as a holiday temptation! This palette includes Rockstar and Ocean long-wear cream shadow as well as Black Ink and Thunder Storm long-wear gel eyeliner. I am a big fan of Bobbi Brown’s long-wear gel eyeliner; I find it’s a bit creamier than most gel liners, but they’re still pigmented enough to give me the darkness I crave.
Rockstar is a silvery shade with a touch of blue undertones, while Ocean is a shimmery midnight blue. Black Ink is pretty much just that – a matte black. Thunder is a dark brownish-gray color. These colors go on just the way they appear, which is great, because I love it when products are true-to-color! I haven’t yet tried out the cream shadows to see how they wear, and I imagine I’ll more likely wear them as liner than as shadows

Bobbi Brown’s Lip & Eye Palette ($60.00) is a limited edition set of four lip colors and four eyeshadows for the holiday season. When you first open the palette, it reveals four lip colors (Berry Mauve, Pink Sequin, Dusty Mauve, and Ruby). The eyeshadows slide out from a drawer beneath them. You will find metallic eyeshadows in Champagne Quartz, Gold Dust, Golden Bronze, and Galaxy. Enclosed in the palette are a mini eyeshadow brush and a mini lip brush with a cap.
Being known for natural and subtle shades, this palette follows the same philosophy. The metallic shadows are soft with hints of color and lots of metallic sheen, which helps add some pop and sizzle to them. The lip colors are sheer, creamy, and inherently glossy. Berry mauve was my favorite shade, because I found it to be a light plum-mauve lip on me–just a shade or two deeper than my normal pout (and pinker).
