Hey Dolls, I am about three weeks late, but just heard the news that Bobbi Brown is leaving her eponymous company. Moment of silence. I am absolutely saddened. I am a huge Bobbi fan – both skin care and makeup – not to mention her clean, sleek and globally-recognized black and white packaging. Dressed in her signature black, applying makeup with her ring finger, Bobbi also made wearing eyeglasses über fashionable.
According to a December 19th press release from parent company Estée Lauder, “After 25 incredible years with Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown is leaving the brand to explore the next phase of her extraordinary career.”
Given the news, I couldn’t let the day go by without sharing some of my Bobbi favs.

As Ms. Brown moves on she says, “The brand’s 25-year anniversary was a wonderful milestone that made me realize it was time to start a new chapter and move on to new ventures. I am thankful for the extraordinary people that I’ve had the privilege to work with over the years and proud of the creative endeavors and innovative products we’ve created together. I am also incredibly grateful to The Estée Lauder Companies and the Lauder family for the many opportunities they gave me. I’m excited to see what the future holds.”
Pret-a-Reporter is reporting that the company’s global brand manager, Peter Lichtenthal, will be taking the helm.

I love the Bobbi Brown Gel eyeliner in Black Plum Ink. I swear by the Vitamin Enriched Face Base!
Love her as well. I have been on the lookout for a new face wash, and this ones sounds yummy. Can’t believe I have never seen it. Grabs purse and heads out the door…
