Special Delivery - Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Collection

I shared a few of these pix last week from my Nordstrom haul and I am IN LOVE!  An entire collection devoted to those that wear glasses.  How can I not be head over heels for this?


Aren't these lovely?  A mix of matte, sparkle, metallic, and shimmer wash shadows.  Perfect for any eye color and just the right amount of color for eye glass wearers.  Above is the Limited Edition Bronze eye palette.  The second shelf slides out to reveal the 4 shadows.  When closed up this palette is purse and travel friendly.  Bonus!



And this is the lovely Limited Edition Sand Palette.  Each palette is designed for your skin tone.  The Bronze palette is perfect for medium to dark skin tones.  The Sand palette is perfect for light to medium skin tones.  Both palettes can be used for work or play, sheered on or dark and smokey, you're choice!



My apologies up front for these being out of order.  The above swatches are from the bottom shelf of the Bronze palette.  From left to right: Tiger's Eye, Espresso, Amber, and Copper Cocoa.


Top shelf of the Bronze palette.  From left to right: Banana, Gold Nugget, Bronze, and Olive.


These swatches are from the Sand palette second shelf.  My apologies again for the pix being turned around.  From left to right: Antique Rose, Black Chocolate, Gold Bar, and Sandy Rose.


And the top shelf of the Sand palette.  From left to right: Ivory, Hot Stone, Desert Sand, and Terracotta.


I also picked up one of the Rich Lip Color SPF12 in Soft Nude (18).  I'm trying to broaden my collection out from all the reds, wines, and pinks.  Surprisingly I don't have a lot of nudes, browns, beiges, etc.


Look at all that yummy rich color.  Bobbi Brown lipsticks are slowly climbing my faves list.

Also available in this collection are: Rich Lip Color SPF 12 in Twig, three High Shimmer Lipglosses in Bare Sparkle, Beach, and Citrus, and a Limited Edition Tortoise Shell Mini Brush Set.  I passed on the brushes cause my collection is growing too vast right now but Bobbi Brown are some of the best brushes from what I've read online.  I had wanted to pick up Citrus lipgloss but that particular Nordstrom was sold out.  The lovely lady working the counter let me know that the glosses are part of the permanent collection so Citrus will be mine very soon! 

The Tortoise Shell Collection is available at Bobbi Brown counters in stores at Macy's and Nordstrom and their online sites.  As of yet it has not released on the Bobbi Brown site.  I assume as it gets closer to Fall the collection will show up.
