Wouldn't it be easier if she just sold stretchy pants and tunic tops on QVC?  LOL

And I really do not try to be negative, but she really got to me in the wrong way. Thought she was a modest, quiet person when on QVC.........really....


 

 

@bakergirl In all honesty, if you don’t want to make the rich even richer, close your checkbook & forget purchasing a car, new computer, cell phone, shop in a major dept. store, buy a best selling book, go to top rated movie w/ a nominated actor, etc.

It will be interesting watching Bobbi and the Q host (they pair her up) w/to sell these "wellness shakes"..😦
It will probably be Jill Bauer. Also, the boutique hotel that her and her husband bought that another poster mentioned is in Montclair, NJ. I read the article and supposedly , it's a place to get away when u don't have the kids or something..

 

 

@KKlim  Yes. She discusses the hotel in interviews on YouTube.

"Makeup mogul Bobbi Brown is stepping into the wellness industry with her new line of supplements.


The line debuts on QVC April 20 and includes four products – Afternoon Chocolate whey protein powder, $60, Overnight Vanilla coconut oil powder, $48, Probiotic lemon-flavored blend, $32, and Strengthen for hair, skin and nails, $33.

 

Unlike her namesake makeup line, which she sold to Estee Lauder in the 1990s and stepped away from in 2016, Brown plans to remain the owner of Evolution_18. She expects the brand to make $3 million in sales in one year, "

Oh great.  Another know it all that thinks she can tell me what to eat and what not to eat.  No thanks.  Jill Bauer loves her make up.  Wonder what she will do now.

That collagen in her smoothie, I wonder if we have to worry if it came from mad cows.  She must think ingesting collagen restores the skin, maybe it does. Mad cow or not I'm sure it'll sell out and offered on auto delivery.

I think it is marine collagen.  Usually marine collagen is used because not only is it more effective, but so many people are adverse to animal.  I use lessman collagen, and have looked at many.  They were all marine, or plant based collagen. But I dont know everything, and I would think mad cow would be an issue or worry!

She's following Suzanne Somers now with the wellness and smoothies and telling us what to eat or drink. NO THANKS! Some of the ingredients in these wellness drinks may not be good for all of us!

I remember seeing her on all the shows years ago, never cared for her and her personality, just wasn’t very personable, and her makeup was very yellow toned; I have to say she makes a nice mascara....

Take time every day to enjoy where you are without a need to fix it

I wish her well but the odds are not in her favor. In her place, with 75 million, I’d retire, travel, and just have fun. She’s going into businesses about which she knows very little.
