Bobbi Brown Chocolate & Navy Set {Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Order #1}

This was my first time buying Bobbi Brown cosmetics and I can see why so many people rave about her products. The lipstick in Brownie is my favorite part of the Nordstrom Exclusive Chocolate and Navy Set... it looks very natural and gives me just a slightly deeper color and more polished look. The lip gloss in Pink Blossom is the perfect complement for a little shine.

The eye colors in the palette are subtle but very pretty. I had a really difficult time trying to get the colors to show up in a photograph and I probably should have applied more of the the Royal Navy along my lash line - it doesn't really show in this pic but it is a very pretty eyeliner color. The set includes (L-R) Navajo, Cement, Gold Bar (sparkly), Copper Cocoa (shimmery) and Royal Navy. There is also a pot of Caviar Ink gel eyeliner (didn't try this yet), and a mascara (didn't try yet either).

...So I've been hearing a lot about this new (?) Maybelline Falsies mascara lately... has anyone tried it?

It sounds like it's getting great reviews and I'm looking forward to getting out to Target and buying a tube soon. I've tried lots of mascaras... Dior, YSL... and have found that for me the drugstore versions can be every bit as good as (or better than) the pricier brands.

Hope everyone is starting out a great week!



  1. Oooh, I want it. Bummer it's no longer available! I wonder if it's available in-store.

  2. Fun!! I love the Anniversary Sale! I'll be interested to hear how you like the mascara. I'm constantly on the hunt for a great volumizing mascara. I just discovered and I'm really liking Maybelline's The Colassal Volume Express, but if the other is better, I'll be happy to try it out!

  3. I LOVE Bobbi Brown!!! I have been wearing her for years!! I looked at that set and passed but now am headed over to Nordy's to pick it up!!! You have inspired me!

  4. I have been using BB foundation in Warm Ivory and powder in Pale Yellow for many years and love them both.

  5. You look beautiful! I hate I missed this great set!

  6. That makeup palette is gorgeous! Love that lipgloss on you.

  7. Hi new reader here. about 90% of my makeup is BB and I love it. I got that set and the brush set that was part of the anniversary sale too. Love it! I have the gel liners in many colors and by far the best eyeliner I have.

    I have tried the falsie mascara and that is best one I have tried lately. Way better than lancome and a touch better than Dior.

  8. thanks so much everyone!
    Mel - I havent tried the gel liner yet but definitely will - thanks for your input. I also bought the falsies mascara just before my trip and am really happy with it :)
