A few weeks ago, I received a surprise delivery from Bobbi Brown.  You should have seen me – I was like a little kid waking up on Christmas Day to find presents galore from Santa.  What was inside the bag?  A trio of goodies from the Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Collection

Bobbi Brown Tuxedo Black Nail Polish

Bobbi Brown Tuxedo Black Nail Polish is a black glossy colour oozing with sophistication.  Gotta admit that I was a bit deceived by looking at the bottle for the shade colour as once painted, the black is a LOT darker and looks more like the lid colour!!  I am seriously impressed with the formula because I only applied one coat and achieved full opacity with no lumps and no air bubbles at all.  Gets a big glossy black thumbs up from moi :)

The only other Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in my lippy stash { Rose Gold } has got the old brush applicator which got frayed after a few uses, so I am super happy to see that a dinky doe foot applicator instead :)  It just makes application much easier especially around the cupid’s bow area.

Hopefully the high-shine sheer warm red lip shade of Bobbi Brown Siren Red Lip Gloss has distracted you from the chin zit in my photo :P

Siren Red is not a HOLLYWOOD CARPET RED but I can imagine it would be if paired on top of a bold red lipstick such as the Old Hollywood Lip Colour Lipstick in the collection.  It’s a great everyday shade.  As for the formula, it plumped up my lip wrinkles to make them look juicy and kissable *mwah*  Also, Bobbi Brown lip glosses are of the sticky variety for longevity so you will either love or hate it.

I was giddy with excitement to try Bobbi Brown Tuxedo Black Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick because I don’t have anything similar in that black smokey colour in my vast make-up collection.

Let me show you arm swatches of Bobbi Brown Tuxedo Black Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick and Bobbi Brown Siren Red Lip Gloss.


Bobbi Brown Tuxedo Black Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick


Love Bobbi Brown Tuxedo Black Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick!  It was a dream to apply onto my eyelid and I used a small blending brush to blend it upwards to create a simple smokey black eye look.  I’m always a bit weary of cream eyeshadows as they crease after an hour on my oily eyelid if I don’t use a primer, but on the day I tested this cream shadow stick, the colour stay put for 4.5 hours WITHOUT primer!!  (I could only test it for 4.5 hours long because preggo me needed my afternoon nap and make-up and contacts lenses had to be removed.)

    love your new Web layout!
    The nail polish is deceiving though, agreed. Judging from the bottle I would have expected a dusty anthracite?
