Bobbi Brown is all about eyes with the new Perfectly Defined Eye Collection, new eyewear and a new book–Everything Eyes. As a makeup artist and glasses wearer, beauty expert Bobbi Brown is often asked how to make eyes stand out. This collection gives us the tools we need. Read on…
The Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Eye Collection includes:
New Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner, in six shades including Pitch Black, Chocolate Truffle, Scotch, Sapphire, Violet Night and Steel Gray. $24
New Gentle Curl Eyelash Curler, $25
I was really eager to try the new Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner. As a longtime fan of the Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, I wasn’t sure there was room for improvement! To be honest, I really like the “pen” eyeliners, as a matter of convenience–both in ease of application and for travel.
The Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner is soft, smooth and smudgeable, if you desire. The shade I tried, Scotch, is medium tan/brown with shimmer. The color payoff was good; you can add intensity by pressing harder (I can’t speak to other shades, as I only tried one). This eyeliner isn’t waterproof, so you do get limited wear on the waterline, but on lids, I get all-day wear. There is a sharpener in the cap, which is essential because the key is to keep a sharp edge, otherwise this liner does tend to draw a thick line as you pull across the lids.
I also was sent a preview copy of Bobbi Brown’s new book Everything Eyes ($14.95). This is Bobbi’s eighth book and she continues to share her professional techniques and tips with us. There is always something to learn from Bobbi Brown! Coinciding with the launch of her new eyewear line, it makes sense that this book would focus solely on eyes, as well as how to choose makeup if you wear glasses. I think that’s a problem that many women have, including me. I like the various eye look tutorials and think that even if you only pick up a few tips, this book is a nice addition to any beauty library and one that I’d recommend.
The Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Collection is available in department stores now, including Nordstrom and Sephora. Bobbi’s book, Everything Eyes, is available on her website BobbiBrown.com, as well as in department stores and booksellers including Amazon.
