Bobbi Brown Goes Green for Fall

Bobbi Brown Bash Metallic Eyeshadow ($20.00) is one of three eyeshadows featured as part of Bobbi Brown’s Ivy League Collection for the fall season.  Bash is a glimmering shade of deep forest green with gold-green flecks of shimmer sheen.

The shade itself has a metallic-frost sheen, and the color is intense without being too bold or dark (and thus looking more black-green than like a green).  It’s even prettier when layered over Forest Shimmer Ink Gel Eyeliner, actually!  It turns it into a darker, fiercer green.

  • Product: 9/10
  • Value: 7/10
  • Ease of Use: 8/10
  • Packaging: 8/10

Recommendation:  If you’re a green fiend like I am, this is definitely a must-have forest green.  It’s vivid without leaning too green nor too black, and it has just enough shimmer and gold sheen to make it easy to blend and use.

On Display Lipglass

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection: Lipstick & Lipglass Lip Swatches

As I promised, here are lip swatches for all of the lipsticks and lipglasses released with MAC’s latest collection. I have to say that I don’t like any of the lipsticks on me! I don’t think they’re suitable to my coloring, or else the shades are just too blah. Front Lit is like Bubbles lipstick – lots of shimmer, and it’s one of those shades you use more for layering than to wear alone or to add color (instead, it adds shimmer). The lipglasses were definitely better, but my favorites remain as On Display and New Spirit lipglasses.

Volturi Twilight, named for a ruling vampire clan in the “Twilight” series, is aimed largely at teens and is launching the middle of next month at Hot Topic, Torrid and Ulta. Luna Twilight, a play on the moon themes in “Twilight,” is targeting older girls and teenagers’ mothers and is launching in the middle of next month at Nordstrom and Dillard’s.

Prices for Volturi’s 21 stockkeeping units run from $9 to $19, and prices for Luna’s 35 sku’s are $18 to $34. — WWD

How do you feel about a movie/book franchise pairing up with a major beauty firm?

Do you think it’s cheesy? Would you buy it (assuming you’re a fan of Twilight)?
