Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Collection for Spring 2014


Hello Blossoms! Bobbi Brown just launch their new Perfectly Defined Collection for Spring 2014. The perfect makeup collection to defined eyes. This collection is available now at BobbiBrown.com.
"As a makeup artist and glasses wearer, beauty expert Bobbi Brown is often asked how to make eyes stand out. The answer? “It’s all about lining your eyes and defining your lashes,” she says. The Perfectly Defined Collection offers women everything they need to create standout eyes: a gel-pencil eyeliner for effortless precision, a gentle lash curler to instantly open up eyes and a dual-ended mascara for layering formulas to give lashes a boost."
Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel EyeLiner ($24 US / $28 CA)
Bobbi’s first retractable pencil delivers richly pigmented color, precision lining and 12-hour wear. It’s formulated to resist water, sweat and humidity so color always looks fresh. Plus, it features a built-in sharpener housed within the end cap, making it easy to get a perfect line every time- even on the go.

• Pitch Black
• Chocolate Truffle
• Sapphire
• Steel Grey
• Scotch
• Violet Night

Bobbi Brown Dual-ended mascara ($25 US / $29 CA)
Designed to be layered, this dual-ended mascara creates a lash look that’s super bold and long-lasting- it’s the best of both worlds.

• Extreme Party Mascara / No Smudge Mascara: Black

Bobbi Brown Gentle Curl Eyelash Curler ($25 US / $29 CA)
The second eyelash curler in Bobbi’s portfolio of makeup tools, the Gentle Curl is specially designed for women with large, shallow or almond-shaped eyes. Featuring a flatter curve, this curler makes it easier for a woman to get very close to the lash line without any pinching. Extra cushiony lash pads gently grip even the smallest of lashes without crimping for a perfectly lifted and curled look.
