This year, her packaging is luxury and her offering is something brighter and pinker, still as luxurious but a fresh take on the festive season.
Deluxe Eye and Cheek Palette – Limited Edition, £59
Bobbi’s luxury palettes are amazing value for money when you compare them to the price of buying each item individually.
Comprising eight eyeshadow shades, you have everything that you need to create a soft smoky eye right up to a very dark look. The shades strike the perfect balance of neutral mattes, some shimmer and glitter shades for evening, and even a jet black which doubles up as a great liner.
And unlike last year, this palette contains two blusher shades rather than lipsticks. Now I absolutely loved last year’s palette, but I feel like the blusher shades are going to be really well received because it is so much easier to keep a palette of powders clean rather than trying to avoid any flyaway pigment spilling into the lip shades. Repackaged in a classic black glossy case with a raised Bobbi logo, this is total luxury and neutral enough for women of all ages and skin tones to enjoy.
Pink Shimmer Brick – Limited Edition, £35
I know that there is already a permanent pink Shimmer Brick in the line up, but this limited edition is so much pearlier. It’s beautiful. A light, oyster sheen, this is going to be lovely used alone as an illuminator or even better buffed into your blusher to give it some iridescence. Without a doubt this is the shining star for me.
Art Stick Trio – Limited Edition, £42
Have you tried the Bobbi Brown Art Sticks before? They’re not like any other chunky sticks in the beauty hall. These are essentially lipstick in a chunky pencil form, giving a really full coverage and that creamy, rich finish. Harlow Red is one of their best sellers, a universally flattering red, and Electric Pink isn’t as scary as it sounds, making eyes pop and lips look full. But the real stand out shade from the bunch is Brown Berry, the perfect rosy nude.
A few months ago Amy Conway from the Bobbi Brown Pro Team was in Birmingham and she showed me this stick. I posted it to Instagram and I got so many comments and people asking me when it was going to launch – it is just one of those shades that looks prim and lovely on everyone. Be sure to keep an eye for Amy at your local Bobbi. She tours the country and she is completely brilliant. I learn something new every time I see her.
Luxe Lip Colours, £22.50
Now these aren’t actually part of the Christmas collection but they’re new from Bobbi and they’re going to make the most beautiful stocking fillers. The Luxe Lip collection is a brand new range of lipstick shades, creamy, rich and housed in a heavy gold packaging. They feel really luxury and expensive, very vintage like lipstick from past times.
The lid is embossed with the new Bobbi logo. Available in 30 shades with 6 exclusive to Selfridges, your go-to colours are Bright Peony, Downton Plum and Your Majesty (because Bobbi loves the Queen).
Don’t forget that what Bobbi Brown does best is make-up lessons. They don’t want you to take anything away without feeling confident and empowered to use it. When you treat your special someone this Christmas, book them in for a make-up lesson too.
Bobbi Brown’s Gift Giving Collection will be available from October 15th.
