I’d really appreciate it if we could just get all of the cheesy wedding puns out of the way now before we discuss the new Here Comes the Bobbi Brown Bride Luxe Collection; otherwise, they’ll distract me every minute of the way (like cat fur on my clothes).
Hey! These new limited-edition Luxe pieces are walking down the aisle now at Nordstrom stores and online (ba-dum-bum!).
Ooh! With her new collection, Ms. Brown is lifting the veil (tee-hee!) on her new eye shadow palette, a travel brush set, a 6-pan palette and highlighter.
Wow! What do I have to say about the new Bobbi Brown Bride Luxe Collection? Two words: I do.
Ah… Much better. Now I can concentrate on the collection itself, which I checked out the other day at Nordie’s.
First thing I thought of when I saw it? Cake.
After swatching the collection, I have a feeling that the $60 Luxe Eye Palette would probably work best on brides-to-be with light and medium skin tones, so if you’re around my shade or darker (MAC NC 42/Bobbi Brown Honey), the colors may all look alike, or nearly so — all similarly sparkly and sheer.
I’m a little surprised that Bobbi didn’t include more mattes in the launch based on what I’ve come to expect from the bridal mags I flip through at Barnes (I’m all about the dresses, ma!).
Mattes do tend to photograph well…
But I’m not one to turn down glitter or shimmer, so haaay! — although I’m thinking that this would probably be a better gift to give a bride-to-be before the actual ceremony, like at a bridal shower, rather than something to wear on the big day, on account of the shimmer.
Or, as a nice gift for your maid of honor.
Which reminds me, after having been on veil duty before (for Jen’s wedding), fighting back tears of joy while trying not to fall in front of a church filled with people as I wrangled a massive train in four-inch heels and a sleeveless dress, I now fancy myself as an unofficial expert on these matters.
Yeah, that was not an easy task…
This palette would be an elegant way to say, “Thank ya, boo, for everything. We’ll always be ride or die.”
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Plum. Tuckered. Out.
That’s what I am. I’m about to pass out…but then there’s Scandal. I want to watch another episode on Netflix.
Hope you had a good day today. Are you looking forward to Friday as much as I am?
