Bobbi Brown Pink Satin Collection

Oh god I feel the force of the lemming hard this morning!

Have you seen this!?

I'm sitting here doing my best not to order this gorgeous, beautiful set. I'm breaking out into a cold sweat as the object of my lust stares back at me in all it's virtual glory on my monitor!

I admit it.

I'm a slave to Bobbi Brown lately.

I've analyzed and done the math on this for the past five minutes deciding if it's worth $140! Do I really need this at that obscene price?! Yes I do don't I?

Seriously, I really loved the Metallics Collection and now having a Pink Metallic Palette is making me excited enough to spit.

Oh the struggle!

I think I'll get it, no I won't, yes I will!

Want it?

Absolutely need it like the Muse?

You definitely made me lol. Your blog looks like a convo with my bf, me with my internal rants and lemming hard.

But isn't bb considered a more subdued line of colors? I like my pop of colors!

I was definitely hard lemming it when I first saw it. But BB always disoppint me with their quality of product and the price. It's just not up to par with the price they charge!

I think the e/s are ok, I don't usually use pastel colors. But the l/g colors are so cute! I'm kicking myself for missing the metallic palette, I really wanted to the forest green one, but it was gone so fast! I'm still hoping for it one day show up at CCO, but I doubt it though. =(

I mizzed you!

I've been kinda a bb whore lately and I'm really loving the stuff. I'm a big supported of the cream foundation at the moment and the eyeliner!

The price makes me wince in pain! $140 is intense.

QVC has the burnt sugar and midnight color variations for the metallics collection! Keep checking it may pop up there!

YOU never know! CCO pops up with these things at times!

I regret not getting the plum one :P

Remember me?

Im your UK reader who asked about JPMON.

You asked me to let you know what i ordered from the site and i finally got round to it, so here is what i purchased.

Loveclover PonPon Cheek N in 5066
Loveclover PonPon Cheek PC in 5021 and 5024
MJ 'Hope my lashes are full and smooth'
Makemania Curvy Lip Silicone 501 and 502

I was generally happy with most of the items, but the MJ mascara clumped after 1 coat.

I have all of there mascaras and i found that their volume ones do tend to clump after 1 coat.

The Loveclover PonPon cheek PC was also a litte bit of a disappointment.

Because the colour on the website is different to the colour in the pot, althought still nice i did find myself checking that they had sent me the right colour.

The 5024 colour, i expected it to be very sparkley, but it was rather lacking in that department.

However the packaging is so damn cute that it kind of makes up for it haha:)

hiya Adina!

LOL totally ;)

I can't help myself I wanted almost all of it myself. I skipped a few things ;)

Ugh I'm such a junkie! Can't wait to see your haul!

I haven't used my halo yet and I've purchased it nearly a month ago ;)

I'm glad you love it now! I need to crack mine open and see what I think! Review to come ;)

Talk soon!

hi Anonymous!

Yes of course! How are you!?

Nice haul of goodies Anonymous!

Aw I'm so sorry the MJ didn't work for you. Have you curled prior to using it? I find it works a treat after curling!

I've never experienced a problem with clumping, smudging, or flaking. I'm a big fan ;) I always curl and prime before and it seems to work well!

Loveclover is a bit sheer :( the packaging is so damn cute but the product is very sheer sadly!

Swatch wise it's difficult to pick items because you never know if the color is right or not.

LOL! I agree the packaging for me always makes up for it hehe!

Enjoy your goodies!
Sorry some were a disappointment :(

I don't care for anything else in this collection, but that lipgloss palette is definitely giving me a happy little tingle downstairs. Is there no chance they'll sell it separately? :-(

I like the lippie palette too. I doubt it :( BUT maybe ebay?
