Bobbi Brown’s Summer Collection for this year is already at John Lewis in an early exclusive – and it’s worth seeking out.
It’s very, er, compact, if you pardon the pun…consisting of just three new products – two of them in compacts!
I reviewed the new Limited Edition High Shine Liquid Eye Shadow for the Sunny Summer post earlier this week, and it really is something completely different, and a perfect summer product.
There is nothing massively new about this collection – the other products aren’t new, other than they are in different packaging, but it’s just so sultry and summery, I love it.
Bright bold colours are my thing, and metallics act as a perfect summer neutral for them, agreed?
The Eye Shadow comes in four shades – Perfect Foil, Copperhead, Molten Petal, and Gold Fusion. It’s a water-based liquid eyeshadow and has a refreshing cooling effect, which is bound to feel fantastic in the summer heat. (If I concentrate hard enough, I can remember it!)
There are two Bronzing Powder Duos, both complementary duos of matte and illuminating finishes in tan-mimicking tones, with micro-pearls that leabve you skin looking naturally sun-kissed. Which is exactly what you want from a bronzer, right? The shades combos are Golden Light and Maui, and Medium and Santa Barbara. The packaging is black with flashes of gold.
The Limited Edition Highlighting Powder is a lovely high-impact, light-reflective powder which gives skin lovely shimmery highlights that make it ideal for strobing. The powder is superfine, and is easy to apply. It comes in a really sweet pink shade for summer, called Rosy.
This lovely little collection would be perfect teamed with either a nude lip or a red lip – or maybe even a bright orange for hot summer nights.
