I don't know what, where, when, or how I got started with Bobbi Brown, but I've been hooked ever since..I think my first love affair with Bobbi Brown was probably her lipstick. My very first lipstivk that i got from Bobbi Brown was from her permanent line called Tulle Brown. And I loved it so much that I was willing to try more Bobbi Brown products. Did I know what I was getting into (and my skinny bank account too!!!)  That lipstick was the perfect color for me, I used them everyday, several times a day, not that it didn't last,it just that I love how smooth and creamy it glided on my lip!!!!. Then as I ventured into the brand I have tried a lot of Bobbi products, I come to a conclusion that Bobbi Brown is my new favorite brand... Every thing just seem to works for me. I am a makeup whore and I do own tons and tons of makeup, yet I tend to go for a natural and simple look a lot, and that is exacttly the Bobbi Brown concept for her make up line. Something simple yet elegance, Easy yet beautiful..I think her makeup is so timeless, It can never be "out" because this is the kind of makeup that you can use everyday, the color seem very basic and boring at first. because I love NARS, and as you know NARS have a lot of colors, and when it came to Bobbi Brown, In was like nahh everything look the same!!! seem like all of the color are so plain and boring. Is this for a more mature people?? But I tried it anyways, and was I wrong. The formular and color are very very easy to wear, Anyone can wear it, no hard tricks or techniques or how to guide that you need to learn. Just use your hand and VOILLA!!!! done!!

  • Bobbi Brown cane out with her holidays collections for 2009, and it was all so georgeous that I had to stop myself from getting all of them for the sake of my wallet!!! But anyways I got my hands on this Earth Metal Eyes and Lip palette. This one retail for $60.00!!! but I got it for less thanks to lord and taylor friend and family sale<3 This palette contain 6 eyes shadows 
  • Autumm Shimmer wash              
  • Earth Metal Metallic                     
  • Zinc Metallic                                
  • Black Spruce Metallic (my fave!!)
  • Sunset Gold Metallic                     
  • Antique Gold Metallic                   
I think all of the eyes shadows are stunning beautiful, especially the Black Spruce, I like to use it on my outer v to darken up my look, and it perfect. I think the shadows have a gppd amount of pigmentation to them, it stay on and it it not messy and powdery everywhere, whic is a plus :-) As for the lips..... not as exciting as the eyes, I personally not really a big fan of lip palette, because the color that you get in the palette are not as pigmented as the original, and it not convenience to use for girl on the go like me. I need to use a seperate lip brusdh for them, which sometimes I don't have the times for. But the color in this palette is very pretty and a bit too sheer for me. but I love it anyways <3.....The colors are.....................................................
Paisley Rose Creamy lip color
Rose Garden Creamy lip color (my fave!!!!)
Rosebud Creamy lip color
Barefoot Shimmer Creamy lip color

All in all I ewally like this palette, The packaging is very sleek as of all Bobbi Brown procusts. The price is a little on the high side, but I think it worth it.

Another one of my favorite out of the holiday collections is this cute little Tube Tint Set. It is just your basic lip gloss in a standard tubes with a slanted tips that makes it a breeze to apply. These are $28 which I think is a good price since you get 3 full size glosses. These will lat me forever and ever. The first one on the right is called cherry tint, and it is a sheer red color which is not as dark as it look in thr tube. At first I was like oh my god, that's red!!when I see it in the tube, but when I put it on, I was relieve that it it wasn't that cherry as it was on the tube. The 2nd one is called blossom tint, It look very very pink in the tube, but it is a sheer baby pink on my lip,which I love. Amd the last one whjich is one of my favorite is Twilight Shimmer, It is almost like a bronze sort of color. I like to just dot this one on after I put on a lipstick and it makes the color look so much richer and a bit more intense. The one thing I love about these glosses is the fact that they're SPF 15..which is fabulous for protecting my lip form the sun. The texture of this feel a lot like a lip balm to me, very thick, creamy but not sticky. Just the way I like it :-)  I am planning to ntry these glitter lip balm next cuz i  am a lipbalm addicted as well!!! so wait for it..

My obsession with NARS !!!!

I love love NARS products, no i was wrong, I am a self proclaim NARS addicted..... Now that's correct. It all started a couple years back...I was just reading a magazines and browsing through the beauty blogs and I've noticed that people are raving about one particular blush, which were called orgasm by NARS. So being the my very self, of course I had to get my ass to the nearest NARS counter and get myself one of this blush. I was very skeptical at first, I mean it JUST a blush, why do people go crazy about it, how good can it be right? But boy was I ashame of that though now. NARS orgasm is MY perfect blush period... It just brighten up my face and makes me look put together like no other makeup has ever come close... It just enough pink to brighten up my complexion, and enough peach to warm up my skin really beautifully.. while I know this blush claim to work for EVRYONE, it does not work foe everyone. I know a lot of people have tried this one and it justg doesn't work for them, god knows why... But for me this is my 3rd one and I will keep buying more. I 've tried the super orgasm one and I did not like it as much as the original one..The sale lady said it more like a night time thing, however I still think that the gold glitters were just too much and too big.. It wasn't a shimmery blush that you may have though, It literally like you put on a chunk of large particles of gold glitters on your face. and it very messy. the glitters goes everywhere all over your face and your body. Oh Well,, since i bough it,I've been using them as eye shadow, Still very messy, make sure you put this one on before you do anything, cuz it will go all over your face AND your clothes. Very pretty color though...   

CoverGirl Lash Blast Lenght!!!!!!!!

I am now addicted to this mascara... I wish that they will NEVER discontinue this one Everrrrrrrr.. I 've tried A LOT of mascaras. High End, Drugstore, Boutique.... whatever.. And I think this one by far is my favourite. Prior to this I have been using Diorshow for like almost a year, and I loves it, the only thing for me is that it dried out and get clumpy very easily. And I mean I'm not just gonna toss a $24 mascara after like what, 2 months of using.... That's just too much of a waste for me. I've also tried a lot of drugstore mascaras, but never actually found THE ONE that work for me. Untill ONE DAY I was jus browsing around @ my local walmart, and I saw that covergirl came out with the new mascara in the bright yellow tube. I think this one was suppose to be a dupe for something like Shu Uemura Fiber mascara or Imju Fiberwig from Japan, which retail @ sephora for$24. While those mascaras have fiber to help lenghten the lashes, this one from covergirl contain nylon fiber. When you pull the wand out of the tube, you won't see any fiber on the wand at all. I really really like this one a lot, It does an excellent job at seperating and lenghten my wimpy lashes. It gives a little volume, not as much as I would get fron Diorshow, but for the price, it not bad. Plus the claim was that it will lenghten and it did as it claimed to be.That kinda a BIG deal to me, when the product claim to do something and it did.. that's to me is like it meet my expectation. OK back to the mascara, it definitely lenghten and seperating my lashes really really good. It does NOT clump or flake AT ALL. Which is why I love it so much.   

My favorites Perfumes

First one is my everyday perfume, which is the one and only Viva La Juicy... I <3 this one, this smell really sweet and just a hint of tart, just the way I like it.. I don't like heavy,spicy,oriental kinda scents, I don't know why, it just not my thing... I tend to go for a more like fresh, fruity, citrus, instead. I like a summer perfume i guess that what you called it. And I cannot get pass the packaging on this one. Isn't it the prettiest bottle...

I have been using this one ever since it came out, which I think about a couple years ago. It still one of my favorites, I think the name says it all, it smell dilicious. I always got compliments whenever I wore this perfume. It smell likes apple only sweeter and yummier!!!!! And again the bottle is so cute and very unique.. I've tried the red one and the pink, they're pretty good,kinda fall in the same category, light, fruity,and very fresh. However this one is still my favorite out of all the DKNY collections!!!

OMG.....................THIS has to be my favorite one ever....but i can't find them in store anymore. This one is called Love by Nina Ricci. and yes it is a limited editions that came out during spring of 2009. The bottle is the cutest little thing.. I have actually not use it all up,because I want to save it just to get a whiff of it every now and then..I am so so sad that this is a limited edition. I wish thaat they would put this one in their permanent line. This one smell similar to the original nina ricci, You know, the one in the same bottle except that it was all red. I t smell pretty similar, only this one is a lot sweeter and just wonderful..... love it love it, love it...

There is a couple more perfumes that I like to share with you, but I will have to save that for later on. I am currently trying out a lot of new perfume,since it is the holiday season, and every brands comes out with a value set. That makes it easier for me to try out I think. My favorite set is the one from sephora. There are so many different ones in the set. I can never get enough of it..going in my wishlist this year for sure!!!
