Bobbi Brown is celebrating being in the business 20 years this year (has it really been that long?). Just for the occasion, she has created a limited edition 1991 Lip Palette ($60).
As Bobbi says, "Lipstick is one of the simplest makeup steps and great way to instantly change your look.”
Do you know the story of Bobbi Brown and how she got her start? Here is a little backstory on the brand.
In 1991, discouraged by the lack of flattering lip colors that were available, Bobbi took to making her own. She created ten lipstick shades that had a brown base, which was in her opinion the most natural complement to a woman’s skin tone. After a small editorial mention in a magazine, Bobbi was soon taking countless phone orders from her home and it wasn’t long before she caught the attention of Bergdorf Goodman, which ultimately launched her eponymous collection. Bobbi hoped that she would sell 100 lipsticks in her first month at the store—and she ended up selling them in just one day.
This palette not only contains the ten original shades she created, but ten modern colors just for 2011 as well. The ten new shades are bright, modern and wearable colors that showcase how the brand has evolved
in the past 20 years. All the shades can be worn alone or blended together for your own customized look.
The 1991 Palette will be available on October 1st. Check it out for yourself at a Bobbi Brown counter nearest you.
