A202546 - Bobbi Brown City Lights 6-piece Color Collection
Night and Day...You're the One!
LOVE! This is the fourth collection purchased from Bobbi; nothing looks better on both younger and aging skin. The fine-nature of the milling in the color cosmetics are so great as to create saturated color that does not look like clown make-up or too teeny-bopper but just right for everyone from teens, twenties, thirties, forties, fifties. etc.
Love how this set allows for both a natural-look as well as glam; so versatile--it's perfect for travel on planes. Just grab your tinted sunblock and go. Colors work well for every skintone, too.
Investment make-up is worth every dime; the application will always be right. It's like bringing Bobbi to your house--except the high-quality product allows you to be the expert make-up artist!
With QVC's return policy, you have NOTHING to lose except the cost of shipping.I highly recommend this set--you won't have to buy eye shadow or lip color for a year...unless you want to. ;)
Bobby's products and demos have changed me!
I would always see Bobby 's beautiful seasonal kits and thought they were pretty, but I could never wear them! I wouldn't know how to get that gorgeous "Bobby Brown signature Look". Well I took the plunge and got the face/concealer compact and fell in love! When I saw a kit with SO much in it I was a little nervous, but thank God the demo showed how to get that pretty look and showed how to use the "scary blue"LOL! When she told how to use it, it wasn't "scary" anymore!, it looked so lovely and elegant and natural I was SO glad I bought it! That touch of blue that I was wondering HOW I was going to use looked so beautiful and made the model's eyes look fantastic. It didn't shout "BLUE" at all but just really drew a subtle but important attention to the eyes and made them stand out, looking so elegantly and beautifully enhanced. It didn't look "too dressy" or out of place. It just made them really soft and gorgeous. It is a look I could wear with jeans or a dress! I am now a total Bobby Brown devotee! I even bought her latest book! I admit it is a little pricey but then so many others cost the same, besides a little goes a LONG way so it lasts a while! In addition, you get a naturally beautiful look that works for any situation! I am sold on Bobby Brown and would recommend it to everyone !
Huge $ disappointment - not for everyone
I thought the eye palette looked very versatile but the first three colors hardly show on my lids (I'm olive complected), even after repeated layering. The only time I got the blue to show up was to use a wet brush, but then the color was way too dramatic for me. I wanted something more subtle. This kit would probably be best for a fair complexion.
The blush is OK and so is the lip palette. You can layer the colors in the palette to achieve different results and top with the sheer lip gloss.
The two best products out of the kit are the long-wear gel eyeliner (awesome, as usual) and the sheer lip gloss (subtle, soft color and long lasting).
Seeing that I'm disappointed with half of the kit, I'm not going to pay $100 for products I will not use. Sadly, it is going to be the first product I've ever returned.
This kit is great! So many different ways to wear it - so many different looks. All of the colors are so pretty - definitely a go-to kit. And that lip gloss is great!
Sadly, this is a disappointment. There is nothing special about this kit which is nearly $100.
As someone else said, blue color eye shadow doesn't really look blue at all. I tried all the lip colors and they are not any better than drug store brand.
Brush is not smooth at all and it doesn't do anything for me other than just cheeky dark plum color which is NOT in this summer. Lip gross applicator is too small.
Overall, it is not worth the money. Though I have never returned any product I purchased from QVC, this is definitely going back.
Nice Kit Not The Colors For Me
I have the downtown beauty kit and really like it. I thought i would love this too; however, the eye colors are just okay. The teal isn't really as blue as i thought it would be. I have blue eyes and was hoping the shadow would enhance them..but i feel like it just makes me look tired. The lip glosses are nice and the blush is a good color but i just feel like i have enough lipsticks and i can go get the blush separately. I'm sure it is a nice kit for others...just not the right colors for me.
Quality Make-Up, just not the kit for me
I gave it 4 stars (not 5) as on the web site the blue looks vibrant, and the lip colors look bright. I have very fair porcelain skin. The first 3 eyeshadows hardly showed up. The blue is midnight (not a teal as it looks), and I wasn't crazy for the matte caviar black liner shadow. The lips were colors I have from other kits or individual colors I've purchased in the past. I did not care for a greyish Thunderstorm eye liner gel. The blush was not a bad color for me. The sheer lip gloss in Marina Pink is the prettiest item in this kit. I would recommend this to others, as they may love these colors and it might just work for them.
Not For All
I have the Downtown Beauty Collection (DBC) and am very pleased with it. I was looking for a blue shadow and was starting to run low of the gel liner from the first set so I thought I might as well get this set. However, the blue shadow doesn't look very good with my medium skin color. It actually comes off gray on my lids. I also found the gel liner a little muted. Also, the blush is matte which I didn't care for either. Overall, it just was not for me. When I bought it, I didn't find much description on items or close-up photos. So look at details before you buy and try in store first if you can.
Not the best value
I was surprised to read the glowing reviews from the other purchasers. I've used Bobbi Brown products in the past and was pleased with the quality. I am disappointed with the "stay" power of the eyeshadow and the lipstick is very drying which is disappointing because I love the colors.
Gave it some stars anyhow because the eye liner is good and the lip gloss is a great natural color.
Perfect Palette - Loving Bobbi Brown!
The best quality with a color palette that accomodates a range of looks - au natural or glamour. I ordered this for Christmas and look forward to using it every day! Bobbi nevers skimps, not even on the brushes. Easy pay is a nice bonus, too! Thank you Bobbi Brown and QVC. Please bring more Bobbi Brown - especially the brush kits.

Another Gorgeous Palette
I received this kit last week, and I am very pleased. Bobbi's kits are so well coordinated, the eye colors all layer beautifully, and last all day. I am impressed that the shadows do not crease, and the eyeliner is perfect. I really like the lip palette too. Between my two BB kits, I have no need for any other makeup. The quality of BB makeup far exceeds many other brands.
