Love it: Bobbi Brown's Autumn 12 Long-Wear Collection

I went to a Bobbi Brown collection launch this morning and came away with a pot of her fabulous Repair Moisturising Balm (perfect for winter), a brand new yoga mat and a SERIOUS new obsession.
The obsession takes the form of two of Bobbi’s makeup release – one new and one already on counter and as-yet-undiscovered by me! The first is part of the Bobbi Brown Autumn 2012- Long-Wear Collection, which is “perfect for the busy woman who has just a few minutes to do her makeup in the morning—and needs it to look good all day long.” That sounds like a bit of me, especially given the mad juggling I do on a daily basis that leaves little time for fussing with my face post-skincare regime – if any at all!
The range includes Long-Wear Mascara in Black (promising maximum lengthening, curling and volume for up to 16 hours), some beautiful new Cream Shadow shades (love the look of Velvet Plum) and the truly impressive object of my desire, the gel-pencil hybrid that is Long-Wear Eye Pencil (pictured above). Formulated with special polymers that melt at skin temperature breaking them into a fluid line upon application, this collection of six little wonders are intensely pigmented and totally waterproof, as well as easy to apply for precise and transfer-resistant wear. The end result is rich color on the lids that’s easy to apply, and stays put for 12 hours without fading. Amazing! I’m obsessed by Jet, which I think would go perfectly with today’s other new discovery, the truly beautiful Cosmic Raspberry lipstick that I’m currently gagging to try on for size. This is on counter right now and looks seriously gorgeous, and the perfect pick-me-up shade to wear on my birthday later this week.
Damn you Bobbi Brown, now I’m faced with the prospect cleaning out my beauty cupboards to make room for another set of absolute must haves!
The new Long-Wear Collection is available: 11 June 2012 at all Bobbi Brown Counters nationwide and at
