BOBBI BROWN: CCO Haul / Shop Spree

Even though I live about 20 minutes away from my local CCO, I don't get there as often as I like. Well, I finally made a trip there this past weekend and I went a little c-r-azy! Especially when I found out they had just gotten in a bunch of Bobbi Brown products; HEAVEN!!!!

So of course I had to "SPLURGE" a little and this is some of the stuff I bought!

I really love the face touch-up palette. It is the perfect all in one makeup essential to have. As you can see from the photo below, this palette houses a concealer, a corrector, a foundation stick, and pressed powder to set everything. I can't say it enough; I LOVE this palette so much and I carry it with me everywhere! It is my "do not leave the house without it" makeup essential that I recommend for everybody.

What can I say, I'm a collector of eyeliners. I have so many eyeliners but I'm constantly buying even more cause I am weak. Weak, I say! Ha Ha!

I bought Black Chocolate because I love how it is almost black but with tinges of brown mixed in. I can wear the Black Chocolate eyeliner with a dark smokey eye or with a neutral eye and with either of the looks I don't look overdone. Actually, I look young, natural and FABULOUS!!!! LOL

I bought the Black Plum eyeliner because the black purplish plum color really makes my green eyes pop! I have worn the Black Plum eyeliner several times already and each time I receive numerous compliments on how green my eyes look. So for those green-eyed ladies this is a "Must Have". 

Lip products....I'm not a big fan of lip products.

Sure, I apply lipstick and then a lipgloss to my lips every morning before I head out the door for work. However, I don't re-apply throughout the day. Nope. I don't really think about it, but I am trying to get better at it.

Anyway, at least that was my excuse and what I kept chanting under my breath when I saw these babies here. It sounded good at the time and I was able to justify buying more lip products. LOL

My favorite out of all three lip products, and the one that I would recommend, is the Metallic lip color in Ruffle. It is such a beautiful color. I was most disappointed with the lipgloss because the teeny tiny lip brush on the wand was about impossible to use. It was way to small and wouldn't pick up much lip product either. I was also disappointed in the Uber Pink creamy lipcolor. In the tube the color looked pink, and this tube was the only one the CCO had in stock so I couldn't swatch it to confirm the exact color. It wasn't until I got home that I realized it was more of a pink salmon color than a true pink. So I was a little disappointed with those two.

Let me know if you have any recommendations for any "Must Have" Bobbi Brown products that I should purchase. Or for that matter, any "Must Have" products from any other brands as well. I'm always looking to try new products, brands, etc. Thanks!
