A CLOSER LOOK: BOBBI BROWN OLD HOLLYWOOD COLLECTION (2013)

Hi everyone!

It’s been a week since I blogged about the preview of Bobbi Brown Holiday 2013 Collection at Ngee Ann City and if you missed that post, simply click here. Now, for those who’ve read it, I mentioned there that I’d be writing a separate post about the collection(s) itself. And so today, I’m very happy to share with you what Bobbi Brown has in store for all of us.


Let me start with the Old Hollywood Collection. I see it as a complete package. It screams red carpet with its every color and sparkle. Take this Old Hollywood Eye Palette (priced at S$99) for example.

Old Hollywood Eye Palette (S$99) – Limited Edition
Includes 9 shades: Ivory Eye Shadow, Beige Eye Shadow, Gold Sparkle Eye Shadow, Opal Sparkle Eye Shadow, Fog Eye Shadow, Golden Pink Metallic Eye Shadow, Chocolate Bronze Sparkle Eye Shadow, Candlelight Gold Metallic Eye Shadow, Eclipse Eye Shadow

This is the perfect eye palette to create a sultry smokey eye look that is red carpet worthy anytime! I mean, c’mon! With all the shades available in this palette, you can definitely come up with any look you can think of. Whether it is a neutral daytime look or a dramatic and ravishing one that’s absolutely perfect for nighttime wear especially to parties and/or social events, this palette is definitely going to cut it! And who is not going to love a compact palette that is complete with a mirror and a dual-ended brush? Totally travel-friendly!

Still on the eyes department, join me as I look at these cream shadow sticks with awe. I’m talking about these new Long-wear Cream Shadow Sticks (priced at S$45 each).

Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick (S$45) – New / Limited Edition
Available in 3 shades: Tuxedo Black, 24 Karat and Bronze (Limited Edition)

Now, this is what I’m so intrigued about. I’ve tried a few other cream shadow sticks but not from Bobbi Brown and what I really like about cream shadows are their dependability and ease of use. If you want a subtle wash of color on your lids or maybe an intense shade that will last the whole day, cream shadow is your guy! It’s very reliable and very convenient to use. Simply apply the color to your lids directly from the stick and easily blend it away with your fingers, and you’re ready to go with an effortless glammed-up look!

We’re almost done with the eyes! I don’t know about you but I’m a huge fan of liquid liners as it can always easily intensify my eye makeup look, which makes me want to check out:

Ink Liner (S$40) – New
Shade: Blackest Black
With an improved formula and felt tip, this easy to use pen-style liner delivers the blackest black, perfect-everytime, line. Inspired by the crisp cat-eye looks of the silver screen, this eyeliner is destined to be your go-to trick for standout eyes every time.
Moving on to the lips section, let me first present to you this Limited Edition Old Hollywood Lip Color (priced at S$50).


Old Hollywood Lip Color (S$50) – Limited Edition
Shade: Old Hollywood

What can I say? Red lips really never go out of style. And though I’m a bit skeptic about wearing red lips nowadays; like seriously, who can turn down a rich and bold red lip color housed in an undeniably stunning gold case? I bet anyone would immediately imagine a photo of herself sporting red pouty lips – leading lady worthy lips, eh?

Now, if plain lipsticks are not your thing, and you’re one of those who can’t consider a look complete without a bit of gloss whether on top of your lipsticks or on your bare lips, here are Bobbi Brown’s treats for y’all! Limited Edition Lip Gloss and High Shimmer Lip Glosses (priced at S$36 each).

LIP GLOSS (S$36) – Limited Edition
Shade: Siren Red
Whether you’re walking the red carpet (or simply want to stand out from the crowd), Bobbi’s limited edition shade of red lets your smile take center stage. This red gloss gives lips a brilliant, high-shine look and contains soothing botanical extracts including Avocado Oil, Vitamins A, C and E and Jojoba Oil to keep lips supple and soft.
HIGH SHIMMER LIP GLOSS (S$36) – Limited Edition
Shade: Candlelight
Shine brighter than any star on the screen with Bobbi’s NEW limited edition High Shimmer Lip Gloss shades for light-catching glimmer on bare lips (or added dimension over your favorite lipstick).
And last but not least, here are Bobbi Brown’s Nail Polish sets. If you’ve been following me on this blog or on my Youtube channel, you’d probably know by now that I’m not a nail polish person but I’d show these sets to you anyway coz I know that a lot of you out there might be interested to check them out.

Nail Polish (S$29 each) – Limited Edition
Available in 2 shades: Siren Red and Tuxedo Black
The perfect complement to a dramatic Hollywood red lip or a sultry smokey eye, Bobbi’s nail lacquers polish off your look, making you glam from head to toe.
GLITTER NAIL POLISH (S$29) – Limited Edition
Shade: Chrome
Fun and festive, these glitter polishes add texture and a pretty touch of color, and can be layered over Siren Red or Tuxedo Black Nail Polishes for added drama.

There you have it! If I were to choose which in this collection I’d like to save up for, that’ll absolutely be the Old Hollywood Eye Palette as I’m a sucker for stunning and glamorous eye shadow colors. Yes, it is pricey, but what can I expect?! It’s Bobbi Brown for crying out loud, hahaha.

By the way, all these will be available starting November 2013 and please keep in mind that these are limited editions only so if you want anything from this collection, better be on your toes. *wink*

How about you? Which of these eye candies are you looking forward to get this November? Yay!
