Random Acts of Swatching: Bobbi Brown Brights Palette

Not too long ago, I highlighted a lovely little palette that happens to feature brilliant hues from all across the spectrum, in miniature! Bobbi Brown’s Brights is the perfect palette for introducing bright pops of playful color into your beauty repertoire. Much like your feisty grandmother, Brights has a vivid personality in a teeny tiny package. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly ordinary plain exterior, for the interior is anything but.

Swatched! Left to right, top to bottom

Periwinkle, Blue Iris, Ultra Violet, Orchid, Mulberry, Honey Bell, Nugget, Buttercup, Maize, Day Glow
Royal Blue, Electric Blue, Cornflower, Wisteria, Bluebell, Watermelon, Sherbet, Samba, Coral, Peach
Pacific, Breeze, Blue Denim, Ocean, Cloud Blue, Electric Pink, Gum Drop, Bubblegum, Pink, Flamingo
Macha Green, Shamrock, Jade, Eucalyptus, Sea Foam

The Cools

The Warms:

As you can see, Brights brings an abundance of color, and packs some phenomenal cosmic color in an itty bitty little space. If you can still get your hands on Bobbi Brown’s Brights, please do!

Beauty Obsessions- Ellis Faas Cosmetics

Beauties, my heart has been captured by Ellis Faas. From the very moment I observed the shiny new line featured quite conspicuously on a fellow beauty bloggers site a few months back, these bullets of beauty went straight through my skull, burying themselves deep into my beauty psyche. It was a cosmetic obsession waiting to happen.

Faux Glow, The Drugstore Way with Physicians Formula

Now that summer is in full swing, it is safe to say that I am looking to abandon those dreadful adjectives that have become a typical part of my self-descriptive vernacular.

Determined to reverse my unsavory pallor, I have decided to investigate the Physician’s Formula bronzer situation. New for the summer are some charming options that both delight with their amazing performance, and enchant with their marvelous packaging.

Random Acts of Swatching- Loreal H.I.P

The Loreal H.I.P (High Intensity Pigments) line is one that has always intrigued me, promising both quality and intensity at a minuscule price. At the Makeup Show, I had the opportunity to investigate the metallic variations.

Mehron, a Brand Worth Your Time and Devotion

Mehron is a brand that wows me every single year at The Makeup Show, and for many reasons. While the Mehron booth is the site for some of the finest body painting at the show, the products deserve their very own spotlight as well. I have already waxed poetic about my love for the Metal Powders (which I use ALL the time) and Paradise Aqua Colors, so let’s go ahead and continue down the Mehron path to explore a couple more K.B favorites.
