Bobbi Brown Ivy League Collection: Review and Makeup Lesson Video

Bobbi Brown Ivy League Collection

Right on the heels of Nude Collection, Bobbi Brown brings us another lovely new collection for fall. The Ivy League Collection focuses on shades of ivy and products for the woman on the go. There are new eye pencils and lip crayons, a new shade of her amazing gel liner, limited-edition shadows, and a new, essential makeup brush.

“Pencils are back in a big way for fall,” Bobbi says. “They’re quick, mistake-proof and can go from subtle to bold in one easy stroke.” I headed to Neiman Marcus in San Francisco to get a closer look at the collection and get a makeup lesson on how to use everything with the wonderful Katrina Rau, Education Executive for Bobbi Brown.

About the Collection

New Bobbi Brown Creamy Eye Pencils and Lip CrayonsCreamy Eye Pencils. These are new pencils with an improved formula that’s especially creamy and smooth so they go on really easily with an intense dose of color. To soften the line and create a smoky look, use the built-in smudger. Each pencil comes with a sharpener. There are nine shades available for $20 each.

Lip Crayons. Bobbi brought these back by popular demand and is keeping them in the permanent collection. Hooray! These are delightful. They’re super silky, moisturizing, subtly glossy, and lip plumping (without being irritating) with an awesome minty feel. Available in six shades for a variety of skin tones for $22 each.

Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow, Angle Eye Shadow Brush, and Gel EyelinerEye Shadows. There are also two new, limited-edition Eye Shadows in very wearable, autumnal ivies. Golden Leaf is a rich, golden khaki green. Bash Metallic is a deep, dark green that reflects a more medium shade of golden, metallic green when the light hits it – stunning. Each comes in its own compact but can also be added to a Custom Palette. $20 each.

Angle Eye Shadow Brush. Bobbi has added an angled shadow brush to her wonderful line of cruelty-free brushes. This is a fantastic, versatile brush that’s ideal for applying shadow in the corners, in the crease, for blending, and for getting a nice, smoky line. Try it and you will love it. $28.

Forest Shimmer Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner. Bobbi added a new color to her range of award-winning gel liners that go on so smooth and truly last all day without smudging. This is an unusual golden, deep, dark forest green that has a gorgeous shimmer. $21.

    ❤ Nicole, Bobbi is doing more overseas and opened some shops recently in Europe and Asia I believe so hopefully she’ll make her way to Germany soon! Bummer that they don’t ship internationally from her online shop.
