Truth be told, I was not expecting to run into this ray of sunshine when I swung by the Bobbi Brown counter at the mall today.
I was just stopping by to spritz a little Beach on my wrist (seriously, on a cold day, that stuff is better than an electric blanket), but then I spotted this limited edition collection…
It reminds me of 2012’s Neons & Nudes collection (remember that one?), but with peach and coral instead of purple and hot pink.
I do wish the eyeshadows weren’t so…well, nude. I would’ve loved to see some darker, richer browns, but that’s probably just my tan talking (“Please, Bobbi! Don’t make me have to apply so many layers!”). Lighter lasses should be able to pull off these shades (and do great things with them) more easily.
There’s also a Shimmer Brick and one more Nail Polish in the collection (here’s the whole shebang at bobbibrowncosmetics.com), but they weren’t there at the counter today.
In other news, “Do not disturb! I’m marathoning House of Cards!”
Not gonna lie, I’ve been looking forward to watching this all day long!
Season 2 is out on Netflix. I started marathoning it last weekend, and I’ve already experienced more than one moment where I sat there completely frozen with my mouth agape on the couch thinking, “OMG! Did that? Really? Just happen?!”
I gotta give kudos to Netflix. I did not think they’d be able to pull off a second season as good as the first one, but so far, so good (I’m about three episodes in). I think it’s just as well-written as anything I’ve ever seen on HBO or AMC.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Hope you had a nice Monday. Remember, if it wasn’t a great one, tomorrow is a new day. I have a good feeling about it, too. Tuesday will be a great day for you (Tabs whispered it to me).
