Bobbi Brown Fall Collection 2009: Bobbi Brown Ivy League Collection

Spotted: Bobbi Brown going preppy by duping Blair Waldorf snappy little look!

Hey Upper Eastsiders! Bobbi Brown Ivy League Collection brings a fresh new spin on the strong Fall eye look using a dominate shade of forest green to capture the spirit of the season!

Check it below!

Whether you're going manly chic this season, dark and goth ('ello black lipstick and gloss!), or heading for the halls of Constance Billard School for Girls, makeup collections far and wide are embracing all sorts of incredible looks to suit all your looks this season.

Bobbi Brown is embracing it's preppy side with a strong, bold eye look that has a certain preppy "tweed" look about it. With a scholarly feel this look should get you from the office to the evening in a flash.

Brand New Bobbi Brown Creamy Eye Pencils ($20) come in a range of shades with a built in smudger so you can go straight or smoked with a quick dab!

Available in:
Brown Plum

Back by popular demand (I know of love 'em) and part of the permanent collection, Bobbi Brown Lip Crayons ($22) will spice up your Fall look with a swipe of pigmented color.

Available in:
Coral Pink
Raisin Berry
Dusty Nude
Wild Rose

Nothing adds mysterious to my eyes like a gorgeous shade of green. Bobbi Brown Forest Shimmer Ink Long-Wear Gel Liner ($21) has that Ivy League flair with a shimmering forest green and golden pearl.

Two brand new limited edition Bobbi Brown Eye Shadows ($20) in Autumn Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow and Bash Metallic Eye Shadow will lend you a ticket to be first in class with your gorgeous green lids.

Although small it strikes me as a beautiful collection. I'm particularly interested in both eye shadows and the gel liner. The overall look is pretty chic while the green brings the season in very nicely for me. I'm a big lover of green on my eyes as it really makes my rather large, buggy brown eyes look mysterious and dare I say seduction so I'm looking forward to trying my hand with these items soon.

What do you think?

Not so into the prep scene?

Loving it?

Tell the Muse!

Bobbi Brown Ivy League will hit counters and Bobbi's site in August but I'll have the sneak peek and swatches for you this week!

These colors look right up my alley-

But is it just me, or is Bobbi Brown oddly expensive? Like more so than other high-end brands? I don't know if it's just me being a broke college student, but I always feel like I get the short end of the stick when I buy a BB product. Not that they aren't quality!

But... Do you know what I mean? I'm not sure I'm making any sense. LOL.

you do finch! I always felt BB was way expensive and that it wasn't worth the price. over a year ago I didn't even LIKE it. Now that I've tried more and more of the items I really love it. I think it's more higher end thus the price...I always feel like Laura Mercier, BB, etc...are way expensive. They are kinda on the totem pole right below Givenchy, Guerlain, and Chanel...!

Yeah, I noticed that too. It isn't like BB isn't worth it, but like you, at first I wasn't too excited about the brand. I always liked the woman, though.

I love Chanel, but I don't even let myself look at it. I get too tempted. ;)
