Through mid-October, Soho's Treasure & Bond is hosting a Bobbi Brown pop-up shop. Currently on offer are products from Bobbi's Uber Basics collection, including nude lipsticks, pink blushes, and matte and shimmer eye shadows. If you stop by on September 29 or October 6 (both Saturdays), the brand's makeup artists will be there to give you tips and help you pick your most flattering shades.
Bobbi talked to Racked about the concept behind her shop:
I love providing women with multitasking products—like Pot Rouge, that comes in a portable container and is perfect for cheeks and lips. I had the same concept in mind with the pop-up shop. I wanted a convenient place for women on the go, where they could escape in the middle of their commute for a second to grab that product they'd been out of for weeks but couldn't get to a department store to pick up, or to get a speedy five-minute touch up, or even a longer makeup application before a night out. The boutique (which is owned by Nordstrom) is also selling copies of the makeup maven's latest book, Pretty Powerful: Beauty Stories to Inspire Confidence.
