Bobbi Brown Glitter Eyeliner in Silver, $20
Above is what happens when your home team wins the World Series while you’re swatching Bobbi Brown Glitter Eyeliner in Silver ($20).
Last night was crazy! After the game we could hear loud booms off in the distance that I presumed were revelers detonating cherry bombs, or perhaps the start of that zombie invasion I’m always talking about.
I was ready to go into Apocalypse Mode and head for the hills! Survival kit? Check. El Hub, Tabs, emergency purse and this new Bobbi limited edition liquid liner? Check.
Why the liner? Ya know, because it’s nice to look good in the face of certain doom.
Glitter Eyeliner is part of the new Bobbi Brown Choose Your Glam collection for lips, eyes and cheeks.
While I’d like to have Bobbi’s Glitter Eyeliner in Silver with me in during a zombie outbreak — great pigment, a quick-drying liquid formula, reflective and therefore easy to spot from military helicopters surveying the area for survivors, waterproof but still easy to remove — it’s not altogether original.
Silver, one of two shades (the other being Gold), looks an awful lot like MAC Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in Nocturnal from fall’s Fabulous Felines collection — same shimmery silver, same style packaging, similar brush, same fantastically long wear time and thin texture.

I can’t say I’m too surprised, though, seeing as how Bobbi Brown and MAC are both owned by Estee Lauder. I mean, we’ve seen similar products across their lines before (see: the MAC Paint Pots and Estee Lauder Cream Shadows).
In this case, the Glitter Eyeliners cost a bit more than their counterparts at MAC ($20 vs. $17.50 for the MAC Superslicks), but if you missed Fabulous Felines the first time around, this could be a second chance.
Bobbi took quite a few risks this fall with the Denim & Rose and Black Velvet collections, but here she’s playing it safe, rolling out a fun, albeit not entirely original product. If you’re on the market for a long-wearing liquid liner and missed it the first time around, you’re in luck!

Burlesque is the new Glitter
Speaking of glitter, have you seen the previews of the upcoming Christina Aguilera/Cher flick, Burlesque? Man-oh-man, it looks like a hot mess. And I usually love Christina and Cher! I won’t be surprised if this movie turns out to be Xtina’s Glitter.
The story looks so totally cheese, but I gotta say Christina’s working a mad cute cat eye and red lip…
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I know I’m years late to the Facebook party, but better late than never, right? I’ve had my account for a while, but I didn’t spend much time on it until last weekend. Yeah…it’s rather addictive, isn’t it? If you’re on Facebook, come say hi.
