You should be able to eye this one on counter right about now: Bobbi Brown’s New Smokey Nudes is a formula the brand has tried and tested each autumn as far back as I can remember and I’m always happy to welcome some new neutrals from BB each September.
This season’s offer is short ‘n’ sweet, with three limited launches in the form of one palette, a Shimmer Brick, four lipsticks plus a couple of sticking-about bits ‘n’ bobs such as a mascara and Kajal liner. We’re looking at the limiteds today, mm’kay?
I have the palette and shimmer brick, and will post swatches tomorrow. Oh I know. Too good, me.
We’ve seen these clever double-decker tray presentation-style palettes from Bobbi lots before, and she’s reprising the idea with the Smokey Nudes Palette, €58. You get eight shades of shadow in a mix of finishes, including matte, metallic, sparkle and cream. Oh, and the casing’s smokey tortoiseshell; it’s very nice.
Four of these Creamy Matte Lip Colours are available too, for €26. Warm Nude, Soft Nude, Pink Nude and Nude, are all rich, creamy and moisturising.
This is a bit of a beaut: Shimmer Brick in Sandstone, €42.50, is a brand signature. Five stripes of super-shimmer combine for a cheek finish that’s really like no other. Again, this has a unique finish on the casing lid, so one to buy if you love an LE.
Check tomorrow for the swatches, but in the meantime, is this a collection to covet, or one you’ll pass by?
