The promo shot looks a little simplistic, but still elegant.

I don’t own any Bobbi Brown, but I do like dark colors. I may take a look at this.

Same here. The Black Cherry Creamy Lip Colour interests me. I also like the black charcoal. The others I can dupe with my MAC e/s collection. I own no BB. May give it a whirl. 🙂

I have the new black Kohl pencil and I think it’s great. Nice and dark, really soft, stays put longer than her creamy eye pencils. I’ve only worn it a few times though, so I’m still test driving it. So far, so good. Also, I’ve been totally jonesing for those lip colors ever since my mom brought home the catalog from Bobbi school… Basically that entire page of lip color will just have to be mine… if my wallet allows it.

I love Bobbi Brown and this collection looks really beautiful, but does anyone feel like it is a more refined revisitation of Style Black from MAC last fall? Maybe that is just my take on it, but I am excited to see the products anyhow!

I’m looking for a great pencil liner that won’t smudge. Any recommendations? I want a nice precise line, and this ad caught my attention until i read that I is great for a smudged look. -_-

I’ve never tried Bobbi Brown products, I always have but the price tag keeps me away from trying a new product ($20 for eyeshadow when MAC is $14). Is the quality worth the extra price?

Christine Avatar

It just depends what you want, you know? A lot of Bobbi Brown’s shades are on the sheer side or they’re “buildable,” which might not be what you’re looking for. There are some excellent shades (very smooth, buttery, rich in color) for sure, but there are also a lot of more neutral shades.

Jazmine Avatar

I’m a teacher so I typically don’t do anything too dramatic. I wear lots of neutrals- that pretty much all I wear- but the sheerness kind of scares me. I’ve heard that the Lipstick quality is better than the eyeshadow.

Need Black Cocoa (metallic eyeshadow), as well as black charcoal eyeshadow, and all the kohls. Will be interesting to see the lip stuff Christine! (sultry season!)

I’ve been waiting for you to feature this one!! I even asked you on twitter. My BBrown rep showed me in July and I promised myself not to buy anymore makeup until this came out. It looks BEAUTIFUL!!!

I see at least one shadow and three lipsticks I’d like to test here! I have had some issues with BB lipsticks in the past (lack of pigment–Hot Cocoa), so these will need to be sampled.

Swatches, please!

Bobbi actually designed this collection with her deep-toned skin customers in mind (the lispticks at least). Imagine what it’s like to be NW45 and look for a “nude” lipstick and be given something like MAC Blankety by a NW20 MUA! The lip colours are designed to be sheer, natural, and wearable, so for everyone hoping for colours with the opacity of the Style Black Lipsticks, that’s not what this collection is about!

the one good perk of working in a department store is getting discounts on great make up =D I was excited for the new Lancome Fall until I saw it in person. Seeing these BB promo pics are exciting. I ve been looking for a nice shimmery burgundy eyeshadow for a while that doesn’t have too much brown in it. I am hoping that this collection will do the trick =D the dark lipsticks are a plus too

Hilana Avatar

I really like this. And the girl in the pic looks elegant, yet casual. Very nice. And I don’t think we had colours this nice in the 90’s. At least not here in SA! 🙂

These might be too dark for my skin, but I still totally love ’em!

Christina Avatar

hmm.. I can’t pull off dark lips very well even though I find the look very chic. I may give the “sheerer” colors a try!
Christine, when may you have swatches for these, if at all?

I wish this collection contained a cheek color (or that bobbi’s team spills the beans on how they did the models’ makeup in the promo photos because I love the delicate black undertone to the contouring. it’s what is most interesting about this colleciton and what i would most want to copy

Shanda Avatar

I tried on all the lip colors and only got one. LOL they are pretty. Not sure how the eyeshadows will wear yet, I have to go back and play with them.

I checked out the new collection at Saks and bought the Black Raspberry lipstick. It is by far the most exciting collection BB has put out in a LONG time! Black Raspberry is the perfect color…it looks almost black in the tube, but goes on sheer and is buildable to a deep, intense color. This will be my go-to fall lipstick!
