QUICK REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Party Collection ($80, bloomingdales.com) is a limited edition special set available at Bloomingdale’s, bobbibrown.co.uk and select travel retail locations. The star product of this set is the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Sandstone which is no longer available individually. It is more taupe-ish and much lighter than the original Bronze Shimmer Brick – more of a cool tan shade. Like the other Shimmer Brick compacts, each of the 5 shades has a shimmery/frost finish and can be used individually or blended on the face and eyes.
Bare Sparkle High Shimmer Lip Gloss has a transparent, slightly golden toned, fine glitter finish that looks lovely over any lip color, on its own or as a touch up gloss. This is the gloss I carry in my bag since it is virtually fool proof and lends enough shine to any look (even a non-makeup one). The Long-Wear Eye Pencil in Mahogany is the ideal deep brown/black shade that softens my normally all black liner look without sacrificing intensity and definition. The travel size Intensifying Long-Wear Mascara easily refreshing mascara during the day – adding depth and separation without adding a clumpy, heavy layer. The pretty rose gold shimmery faux leather cosmetic bag finishes off the set (pretty).
While Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Party Collection is elusive and hard to find, its one of the prettiest sets and well edited. Each product is sure to please, easy to use and adds the right amount of shimmer and shine to any look – from the holidays and beyond.
