Bobbi Brown’s Christmas 2013 gift collection is a little smaller than usual – previous years have seen huge slews of one-offs for the season plus store-specific trunks and glam brush sets, so the 2013 edit is quite pared back in comparison.

That doesn’t mean we don’t have stuff to ogle: we do. Like this little lot of limited edition lovelies, for example.

Bobbi Brown Holiday Gift Giving Collection Lip and Eye Palettes

Two Lip and Eye Palettes, €30, are great value I reckon. Three shadows, two lipsticks and a gloss in a lacquered compact with a mirror; these come in Everyday Pretty and Date Night intensities.

The Nude Glow Shimmer Brick is a beaut. €45.
