One of my favourite brands, Bobbi Brown has SO much to offer this Christmas in terms of gift sets, palettes, and gorgeous shimmer and sparkle, I can’t even begin to cover it all.
But I will show you some of my favourite things, and a few I was gifted for the purposes of this blog review.
I think Bobbi Brown the brand has done a pretty decent job of keeping up to the standards set by Bobbi Brown the person following her departure in 2016. The collections are still innovative and fun, and the core products just work really, really well.
And at this time of year, they usually excel in glamorous gifting. Look at this beautiful Eyeshadow Palette (£59) from the Luxe Gems collection. The only problem here is getting your hands on one as it seems sold out already online at least. It’s almost too beautiful to use, and you just know the shadows, if you do dip in, are going to give great pigment and colour pay-off.
I was sent the lovely Smoke and Metals Eye Shadow Palette (£36.50) which is a great gift for any makeup fan – trust me! It’s got eight shadows in excellent shades for a smoky eye, in just enough shimmery finishes for this time of year and the summer!
The In A Flash Eyeshadow Palette (£49.50) is bigger, with 12 shadows, again in excellent neutrals, a bit of bold smoky eye shimmer in there, and totally wearable all year long.
The Keep Glowing Lip & Cheek Set is worth £92! But it’s only £36 – which is probably why this one is selling fast or sold out too! It contains Illuminating Powder Duo in Peach Glow and Rose Glow, a Face Blender Brush, and Mini High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Bare Sparkle.
Begin your festive glow with the Hydrate & Glow Skincare Essentials set (£50) which contains a full-size Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm in Golden Glow, Mini Hydrating Eye Cream, and full-size Extra Lip Tint in Bare Nude Sparkle. It comes in a gorgeous box, and any Bobbi fan of glowing skin will love you for this.
The Major Crush Liquid Lip Set (£40) is for the lipstick lovers, obviously. It has FOUR full-size Crushed Liquid Lips – in Ginger Snap, Currant Affair, Smoothie Move, and Mango Move. If you know a lipstick lover, this one needs to be wrapped up for them now!
Finally, my favourite – the Limited Edition Velvet Makeup Bag (£22). It’s super-soft, and really roomy, for loads of goodies. If you are buying it for someone as a gift, don’t forget to pop something in there – no-one wants an empty makeup bag!
