My Bobbi Brown Wishlist

When it comes to iconic cosmetic companies Bobbi Brown stands out. With a focus on natural and feminine shades, I already own a number of Bobbi Brown products and, at any given time, I have more on my radar. Here is a wish list of items that I am currently coveting.  These items are from Harrods which, if you are looking for Bobbi Brown UK items, is a great place to shop.

(1)  Caviar and Oyster Palette

I can’t tell you how many times I have almost ordered this. With four matte shadow shades and four shimmer shades, it is perfect for creating smoky eye looks or sparkling highlight looks for an evening out on the town or for parties. It comes paired with a shimmering highlighter for your cheeks to create a sparkling glow. The entire compact will also fit nicely in your purse. The shades are all universally flattering and versatile.

(2) Bobbi Brown BB Cream

I love BB creams, and Bobbi Brown reportedly has one of the best outside of the Asian companies. I been wanting to try it for some time and simply have not gotten around to it yet. If you have good skin, you can wear a BB cream alone. I like to use BB creams as a primer and put a tinted powder over it since I have some hyperpigmentation to hide. A good BB cream will act as a multi-tasker by providing coverage, skin care, and SPF protection all in one. The Bobbi Brown version offers SPF 35 protection.

(3) Uber Nude Lip and Eye Palette

This lip and eye palette is perfect for the neutral and nude shadow lover. That certainly includes me! It includes two lip shades, a shimmer gloss, and three matte shadows. It is great for everyday looks, while the shimmer lip items allow it to be dressed up a bit as well.

(4) Full Coverage Brush

I would love to try the Bobbi Brown full coverage brush and see how it compares to other similar brushes such as Urban Decay’s good karma optical blending brush. This type of brush has become popular for creating perfect foundation looks by stippling on the makeup and then buffing it. I have had great results with the UD brush and suspect that Bobbi Brown would make an even better one. Hopefully I will try it out at some point!

Urban Decay Vice Palette Review

I first became hooked on Urban Decay products after receiving one of their palettes as a gift. I quickly became hooked on the quality of the products. I have tried many luxury and department store-quality eye shadow palettes in the past, but none have given me the high impact color and staying power that Urban Decay eyeshadows have to offer. I really fell in love with the Urban Decay products, however, after I purchased the Vice palette.

Urban Decay Vice Palette

Urban Decay’s Vice palette features 20 of the hottest shades, from the glittering copper tones of “Penny Lane” to the tranquil turquoise of “Unhinged” and the soft glittery peach of “Provocateur.” The shades can compliment each other or stand alone in a sweep of color.

Each of the shades delivers saturated color that blends easily with the other eyeshadows, making professional-quality eye effects a snap. Whether you prefer bold and bright effects or a soft accent of color, the Urban Decay Vice palette can offer what you need. Sweep on a lot of color for dramatic effects or add a soft layer for a subtle look.
Best of all, even those who tend to be heavy-handed with their eyeshadow will find that a little of the Urban Decay eyeshadow goes a long way. You do not need to load this eyeshadow onto your eyelids to achieve a bold effect. As a result, the Vice palette will last you for months or even years if you care to keep eye makeup for that long.

The Vice Palette is housed in a durable plum-colored plastic casing with a jewel-like “UD” logo on the front. The casing features a push-button closure so it will not snap open when handled or even when dropped. The lid contains a large, sturdy polished metal mirror so you can fix your makeup even on the go.

A soft-bristled, double-ended brush is included in the case. The brush is useful for adding a high-intensity burst of color but because the bristles are very soft and not angles, I found it difficult to create shading or contour effects with it. If your brushes are an important part of your makeup application or if you prefer a softer look, you may want to use your own brush rather than this one.
If you appreciate bold and metallic colors, the Vice palette may be all that you need. The twenty colors can be used to create countless effects and looks. However, the colors also blend well with shades from other Urban Decay palettes, such as the Smoked palette, or either of the Naked palettes.

The Urban Decay Vice palette is not inexpensive. You will not find this palette for drug store prices. However, the quality of the product and the uniqueness of the colors will more than make up for the cost.

NARS Andy Warhol Flowers Palette Review

NARS has introduced the Flowers Eye Shadow palette in a stunning array of colors. The Flower Palettes are limited edition eye-makeup products drawing inspiration from the immortal art of the American artist Andy Warhol.

NARS Andy Warhol Flowers Palettes

The exclusive palette is available in three different color palettes, with every palette paying homage to Andy Warhol’s silkscreen art of the vibrant, color-rich poppies. The first palette combines white, gold, lavender and rose against a grand, shimmering lavender-grey setting and black overspray. The second one has a white and Heather blue tone while the third features white, pink champagne and dark brown.

With the thoughful diversity in the color palettes, there is a color available for every different complexion. The shadows are long-wearing and blend easily and uniformly. The gentle sheen of the pigment-rich shadows gives a magnetic charm to the eyes without making them appear glittery and overdone.The shadows are also crease-resistant

Use the individual shades in the palettes, or mix and match and have fun.  The neutral tones are refreshing and gel well with the brighter ones. Your eyes are windows to the world, with Nars Flower eye-shadow effect they draw the world in!
