Bobbi’s “Lip Colors” are her basic lipsticks, and there are two new shades for fall. Black Maple is chocolate cherry. Black Raspberry is redwood.
There’s just one Metallic Lip Color: Black Garnet. Black Garnet is a slightly shimmery, slightly sparkly purple-brown.
There are two new Creamy Lip Colors, cool brown Black Mahogany and the aptly named Black Cherry.
All five lipsticks are $22 each.
There’s also just one gloss, Black Chocolate Sheer Color Gloss ($20). It is really very sheer (this is the layered swatch, if you can believe it).
There are seven new eyeshadows in all, but none of my counters have received the two Sparkle shades, Black and Black Velvet.
It’s also slightly confusing that shade names have been reused for different eyeshadow finishes.
To begin, there’s a Black Charcoal metallic eyeshadow (#78). This shadow actually seemed much more like a Sparkle than a Metallic to me. I previously observed that the Metallic shadows are smooth, pigmented, and shimmery (occasionally frosty). Black Charcoal metallic shadow is silver sparkle in a matte black base. I wasn’t completely satisfied with my dry swatch, so I swatched it a second time over moisturizer (to simulate performance over an eyeshadow base). The result was a deeper black and a denser sparkle.
Next to Black Charcoal Metallic is Black Charcoal Eye Shadow (#2F). The matte Black Charcoal is nearly black. If I let myself get romantic, I would call it the darkest, coolest brown that could possibly exist. You could also say it was a “soft” black, a sooty charcoal.
Black Berry (#77) is a Metallic, literally a blackened berry with tiny berry sparkles.
Black Cocoa (#79) is also Metallic, a cool, dark brown with lots of copper sparkles (more than you can see in the photo).
Black Chocolate (#2G) is another “regular” eyeshadow, a dark, cool, matte brown. All Bobbi shadows are $20.
And this collection introduces a new eyeliner for Bobbi: pencil kohls in three shades. These are deliciously creamy. As kohls, my first instinct is to use them on my waterline, but the sales associate I talked to said she’s also been using them like smudgy crayons, almost like eyeshadow. These are $20 each.
