BOBBI BROWN The Hot Collection – Limited Edition

bb1 Intro

It is that time of the year again when Bobbi Brown comes out with her limited edition collection. To begin with, I am a massive Bobbi Brown fan especially her limited edition collections because they are always super cool. Having lost the chance of buying her previous two collections; Rich Chocolate Collection and Nectar & Nude Collection, I am very determined to get my hands on her latest one – The Hot Collection in collaboration with Kate Uptown. I first saw it on Bobbi Brown Middle East Instagram and knew right away it’s totally up my street.

The collection features:

Three Limited Edition Sheer Lip Color Shades – Hot Pink, Hot Orange, Hot Berry

I got a chance to try Hot Berry and really liked. It gives a very sheer glossy dark pinkish color to your lips leaving them looking very natural and quite drool worthy. Most of the berry toned lip colors I try are always too dark for me and kind of make me look like a vampire but this one was perfect – not very dark not very light – just the perfect amount of pinkish berry color.

Three Limited Edition Art Stick Shades – Hot Pink-10, Hot Orange-11, Hot Berry-09

I have my eyes on the Hot Berry one because I like Hot Berry Sheer lip color a lot and I am not the one who spends on glossy stuff but if I do get it I might just pick the Art Stick too. Would do anything to prolong the lip color effect, ha.

Limited Edition Hot Nudes Eye Palette –

Row 1 – Left to Right – Ivory, Smoke Shimmer Wash, Peach Sugar Shimmer Wash, Cement Sparkle

Row 2 – Left to Right – Nude Petal, Bronzed Beige Metallic, Taupe, Blackest Brown

I love Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Eye Palettes. They are always so good. Their Hot Nudes Eye Palette is something I would definitely spend on. It has all the perfect colors that can be used for any occasion, casual or formal. You can dress up with them or dress down. Absolutely love it.

Limited Edition Cheek Palettes –

I am not into cheek palettes as I like individual pots more and I have recently purchased an extremely gorgeous pink blush (I’ll share soon, lovelies 😉 ). From Left to Right – Pale Pink Blush / Pink Highlighter / Powder Pink Blush

Limited Edition Ink Liner

A pen ink liner in shade Darkest Black. Not something I would invest in because I have no eyelid space lol but wouldn’t mind giving it a go.

As far as I know it’s retailing in Oman from 15th of May (yessss I have some time to save up for all of it) but I shall keep you guys updated if I see it in store before that.

So what do you guys think about The Hot Collection? Which product would you spend on? I definitely need the Hot Nudes Eye Palette in my life.

Till next time,

Love

A Bit of Shopping, Beauty

A BIT OF SHOPPING #4 ~ First Ever Shopping From MAC + Building A Basic Brushes Collection

I give up. I have been trying so hard to sleep early every day so that I get 7+ hours sleep and I am not sleepy at work. It hasn’t been working very well this past two weeks. I don’t know the reason why but let’s make the most of this opportunity and start late night blogging again, ha.

So this happened. 😀

I made a trip to MAC couple of days back and did my first ever purchase from there. I splurged on two brushes. I am trying to build my basic brushes collection and I don’t want to get all the brushes from one place. These two were just so hard to resist.

MAC 168 – (R.O. 18.500) I love contouring and what a great difference it brings to a no shape face (read me). Now I am no professional but my first few tries from a normal beauty kit brush went pretty great. That’s when I thought it is time to invest in a proper contouring brush. MAC 168 caught my eyes last year when I was looking for a nice blusher brush and read some reviews how it could be used for contouring and blusher as well. It won’t hurt to get a multi-task brush now would it? I went to the store to see it and fell in love with how pretty it was. So far I haven’t tried it for contouring but it is not that great with blush. That’s just an initial observation but I would do a proper review soon in a few weeks. 🙂

MAC 217 – (R.O. 11.500) This was kind of a well thought purchase. I read Anna’s post about this brush saying how it’s the best eye shadow brush for cack-handed people for making their eye shadow look flawless (Click Here To Read It!!). I really like eye shadows but because of my droopy lids I never gave it a go. After reading this post I thought to take the plunge. I got it, I’ve been using it and I AM LOVING IT!!! This is such an easy all-over-your-lid-in-one-swipe brush and does give a flawless finish no matter how hurriedly you do the process. I have been using it every morning and it doesn’t even take me a minute to get done with my lids. A must buy if I can say already. Full review would be up soon.

I would love to know which your favorite brushes are as I still have a long way to go to complete my basic brushes collection. Let me know in the comments below and be an enabler, ha.

Hugs and Kisses,
