bobbi brown's new tortoise shell collection essentializes how one ends up with a crush on a girl who wears glasses.
as bobbi herself says, "like a great pair of glasses, the tortoise shell collection is about standout eyes." the star products in the line are two eye palettes ($60 a piece) - sand tortoise shell and bronze tortoise shell - each with 8 shadows (4 new shades in each). i can't stop looking at the bronze palette - it includes a shade called olive sparkle eyeshadow. i think i need this beacuse nobody does sparkle shadow better than bobbi.
also in the line: tortoise shell mini brush set ($55), rich lip color spf 12 (in soft nude or twig, $22) or high shimmer lip gloss (in bare sparkle, beach or citrus, $22). i have the bare sparkle - and while the shade may be bare, the sparkle is anything but -- this gloss is high shimmer to the max.
