The ‘C’ in this case stands for cosmetics.

Imagine if you will my gift of product knowledge. Now imagine it is matched only by my knowledge of Pop Culture and other totally random information. When you combine these 2 categories you get what I call:  Cosmetic Mathematics.

Allow me to elaborate, when you take  (A) Bobbi Brown Cosmetics (my first foray into the cosmetic world was her early 90’s collection of lipsticks) and you add it to (B) 1998’s breakout TV show Dawson’s Creek (still one of my very favorite shows of all time), what you get is a gorgeous makeup palette that is perfect for all of your needs.

Bobbi Brown’s Bobbi and Katie Palette is the item I am referring to. For $79 CAD, you get 8 neutral eyeshadows that will take you from day to night, 2 Pot Rouges (cheek/lip stains) in colors that really do flatter all skin tones and 1 Chocolate Eye Pencil. On my latest holiday it was the only makeup I packed.

Disguised as a notebook (which is way cute), this palette really does perform!

Whether you’re a Jenn, a  Joey or an Andy this palette is universally flattering.

With Christmas on its way, this would make a perfect stocking stuffer for the beauty buff on your list.

You “don’t wanna wait” for this limited item to sell out.

Hot Flash Fixer….

It’s happened to us all, you’re in a restaurant enjoying a nice evening out, when suddenly this overpowering warmth from within takes over, you ignore it and pretend it’s not happening, when your dinner date says, “You’re sweating, are you okay?”  This only exacerbates the flush, intensifying it by 100%! Whether the flush is caused by menopause or you’re just overdressed for the occasion, you’re sweating and it’s dripping down your face and pretty soon your cheek color will be at your chin.  What do you do?

You do NOT take your napkin from your lap and swipe it across your face or worse, use your sleeve! GROSS! Lucky for you, you have me!  Today’s product won’t stop the “hot flash” from coming on, but it will make the “post flash” cleanup a lot more glamorous. Bobbi Brown’s Blotting Papers  at $20/pack (100 sheets) plus a gorgeous, black faux leather, mirrored compact is the solution that won’t cause poor Emily Post to roll over in her grave, or your dinner date from seeking date number 2.

Unlike just about every other blotting paper out there, Bobbi’s don’t leave you looking like a Kabuki theater reject!  These sheets are powderless and simply absorb the excess oil from your face.  Plus the mirror inside lets you see if you have any spinach in your teeth (I haven’t quite found the product to stop that from happening…yet)!  This compact is small enough to fit into the tiniest of clutches and refills can be purchased for $10 so you never need to replace the original compact.

The only downside is forgetting to put them in your handbag as I did last weekend and instead of the sympathetic, “are you okay?” I got, “Ha, you’re sweating…Ha Ha Ha!”  Very humbling I assure you and slightly mortifying!

Learn from my mistake!  Blot on readers…xo Elisa
