Bobbi Brown Custom Palettes.

I am very curious about these palettes, even more so now that Julia from All About the Pretty raved about them so much when I saw her last week. Bobbi Brown knows palettes, and I think she has another winner on her hands with her newly designed Custom Palettes.

You select from a three pan or a four pan palette, both of which are mirrored, and you select from Eye Shadow, Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow, Blush or Shimmer Blush - or a combo of any - and fill up the palette.

First, I want to know where are the lip shades? Surely they are in development, as we need our Bobbi Brown Lip Color and Lip Gloss.

Another product I think that needs to be made in pan palette size is a bronzer - oh, and a concealer and powder too. That would be perfect.

Next, as I am looking to come up with my mix of shades, I notice my favorite Bobbi shades are not there. Agh - I cannot live without my Smoke shadow as I use it as my eye liner almost daily! But I suppose I could throw my single pan in separately - if I must;).

Really, this palette system is a fabulous idea as it brings us back to the basics of Bobbi Brown.   I would fill up a four pan palette with shadows and a three pan palette with the blush. Each empty palette costs $10, the shadows sell for $20 each and the blush for $22 each.

I cannot wait to see what more becomes available, because if I know Bobbi, she will have all of her regular shades available and add more products for the ultimate customization.

Make Up For Ever HD POWDER.

I think that this powder might just revolutionize the way we think of our complexions. I think we can all agree that we want to look as flawless as possible, and flawless (as close to it) is what you get from this new amazing powder. This is Make Up For Ever High Definition Powder.

This powder is a completely universal, unbelievable, must-have product for any and every skin tone. You really need to see and feel this to believe it. Even more exciting is that this powder is the first formulation in Make Up For Ever's complete HD Collection.

This formula is incredibly soft and satiny and uses ultra fine, spherical micro-particles made of 100% Mineral Silica Powder. These extremely refined, round micro-particles allow natural and artificial light to reflect off of them, thereby softening and ultimately masking lines and imperfections for a perfect, radiant complexion on
screen and in real life.

Tested by professionals in front of HD cameras, the satin textured HD Powder not only sets foundation and slightly mattifies skin, but completely evens out the complexion for a glowing, radiant look. While the powder is a milky white color in the jar, the formula is utterly translucent once applied to skin, making it the ideal finishing powder for all skin tones from light to deep.

HD Powder is completely talc free and paraben free and will not dehydrate skin. 100% Mineral Silica Powder makes it safe for even sensitive skin types.

This is available at Sephora and Sephora.com for $30.00. Look for a special Kabuki brush to pair with the powder making application super simple coming up in August.
