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.
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.
Two very classic Bobbi palettes here in the form of Smokey Cool Eyes (hurray!) and Smokey Warm Eyes, €48. Each contains a mix of mattes, metallics, sparkle and shimmer.
This pretty palette is the Sequin Shimmer Brick Eye Palette, €45, and contains 10 cool shimmer shadows you can use individually or blend together.
Two brush sets are included for tool fans: above is the Old Hollywood Mini Brush Set, €70, and bottom, the Old Hollywood Travel Brush Set, €100.
A Lip Gloss Trio contains pink sugar, bronzed heather and dusty rose and is €24.
This is another standout piece: the Twilight Pink Lip and Eye Palette is €67.50 and has the lot. 10 shadow shades, four lip colours and a lip brush.
And here’s what some of the collection looks like in the flesh when I had a gander at it at the press launch. Nice indeed.
More detail on some of the products: my eye is firmly on the Eye Shadow Palette in Smokey Cools, please Santa. You?
