Has it been 20 years already? Where did the time go? Bobbi Brown has introduced a Limited-Edition 1991 Lip Palette in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the launch of her lipstick collection and brand. Read on for more….
It’s really hard to believe that 20 years have passed since Bobbi Brown took matters into her own hands and created a line of lipsticks. The original ten lipsticks had a brown base, which she felt was more natural looking and flattering to a woman’s skin tone. Of course, the collection was a huge success and the brand has evolved into so much more, but always staying true to Bobbi’s vision.
The Limited Edition 1991 Palette includes 20 shades–the original 10 lipsticks that started it all, plus ten new, modern colors that really highlight how the brand has grown over the past 20 years. It’s housed in a chic, black mirrored compact with the “Est. 1991” logo on the top. The name of each shade is printed on the back, which is helpful. The lipstick colors are the same size as the Bobbi Brights Palette that was released last year.
The 1991 Colors include: Salmon, Beige, Raisin, Brown, Rose, Pink, Orange. Blackberry, Burnt Red and Red. The 2011 Exclusive Colors include: Coral Gables, Lady Ruba, Berry Punch, Hot Berry, Watermelon, Atomic Pink, Party Pink, Cosmic Lily, Pink Martini and Candied Red.
What really jumps out at me in looking at the compact is how vibrant and bright the new lipstick shades are and how the original shades are still so wearable today. It’s fun mixing and matching to create your own custom lipstick look, too. In terms of formula, no surprise–these lipsticks look and feel great, with creamy, semi-matte color that is buildable.
The Bobbi Brown Limited-Edition 1991 Lip Palette retails at $60 and will be available in October at all Bobbi Brown Counters and www.bobbibrown.com.
