Clinique + Bobbi Brown


If you're in the market for some new beauty products, you should seriously consider these two. For starters, there's just something about having all of the right colors in one revolutionary palette, so you can just grab it and go. Secondly, I'm really loving cream shadows because of their soft texture and long lasting pigmentation.

With the Clinique A Case of the Pretties Set, you can easily go from day to night. This case has seven eyeshadows, two blushes and three lip stains. I love this palette because the famous velvety Clinique makeup is easy to apply.

I'm also surprised at how much I like cream eyeshadows! The Bobbi Brown Chocolates Long-Wear Eye Trio has two shades of taupe cream shadow and a dark brown gel eyeliner. It also has a dual-ended brush for the shadow and eyeliner, so you can apply it like a pro.
