We’ve looked at a few parts of Bobbi Brown’s holiday collection already: the Earth Metal Palette, the Chrome collection, including the Chrome palette. Today I have a few more pieces for you. Neiman Marcus, by virtue of its special relationship with Bobbi, sometimes gets exclusive pieces to collections. This holiday, those pieces are three mini Shimmer Bricks and two Lip Color lipsticks. [Edit: you can find these pieces in Bergdorf Goodman, too, if you happen to be in NYC.]
The mini Shimmer Bricks are $45 each (a regular Shimmer Brick is $38). I was sort of hoping they’d be sold in a set — a trio of mini shimmerbrick cuteness. No such luck. I assume the hefty price of these is based on their heavy compacts. The sales associates at the Bobbi counter were sort of horrified that I swatched these so heavily — and with a sponge. They said to avoid the metallic look, use a light hand and don’t swirl your brush in them. I was thinking a skunk brush might be the answer — they pointed out an official Bobbi Brown goat hair Face Blender brush for the job. (I don’t think Bobbi has a skunk in her line.)
All three Shimmerbricks had a lot of multicolored sparkle. They were all pretty, but Nectar was my favorite — it reminds me of MAC’s Porcelain Pink.
There are also two new lipsticks: Sand and Pink Nectar. Port is being repromoted from the Chrome collection. The lipsticks are regular price at $22, and I LOVE Pink Nectar.
