If there’s ONE makeup collection that should have your attention this season. It’s 100% THIS.
Bobbi Brown have outdone themselves this year with a dazzling, shimmering, glimmering and simply stunning array of limited edition products for Christmas. Gifting has probably never been this easy.
There are A LOT of limited edition Christmas items, I am just going to show you/ talk you through the bits that I have or seen. First up…..pretty pictures.
This holographic packaging is so eye catching and I simply love this design. I think there is maybe 6 of the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow palettes which come in this festive design. It is made from a hard cardboard outer layer with a magnetic shut-open and they all have mirrors within. No brushes included.
£49.50. 12 shades. Holographic packaging. A mixture of matte and shimmer shades. Cool and warm tones inspired by NYC. All colours are beautiful EXCEPT the matte black ‘blackout’ shade which unfortunately is a little chalky. Needs to be layered and built up.
Swatches are as below AND the golden halo eye look was done using this palette.
Love in The Afternoon Eye Shadow Palette
£36.50. 8 shades. Limited edition. Holographic packaging. A mixture of matte, satin and shimmer. Sophisticated natural pink and brown tones. Perfect for a friend who loves a natural eye makeup. Very easy to wear. Looked a little plain to me but actually when I swatched it I was pleasantly surprised at how wearable the colours are and I am not usually a fan of pink.
Luxe Gems Eye Shadow Palette
£59. 7 shades. 2 matte, 5 multi-faceted (gorgeous!) shimmer. I absolutely love these shimmer formulas. Grown up glitter, lovely to apply and blend.
ACTUALLY not a Christmas palette as I first thought but if you can get your hands on this ANYWHERE (good luck) then I would snap it up! Stunning hard plastic / metallic look packaging.
Swatches are as below and the smoky blue-black eye was done using this palette.
Single Makeup Items.
Lots of limited edition single items, if a palette isn’t quite right or in your price range. Eyeshadow singles, glittery lipsticks, glosses, highlighters and more!
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT *THAT* LIPSTICK. The glitter-covered Luxe Jewel lipstick in shade ‘Ruby Slippers’. It is shimmering, pearl-infused and it is stunning. I had to swatch it obviously for this post but I am buying another to lay untouched but very loved in my hall of fame drawer of the very best limited edition lipsticks. LOVE.
If you like a high lustre, glossier finish then check out the Luxe Liquid Lip Rich Lustre : 3 shimmering shades, I have the Crystal Ball which is a beauty on it’s own OR as a lip topper too.
A lot of the single items HAVE already sold out (including that gorgeous highlighter pictured at the top!) but they do still have some of these Luxe Eyeshadows that come in the spangly gold packaging in quite a few shades. I have Moonstone which is a really wearable pale pink golden shimmer. Great for an all over eye-brightening wash of colour, under the brows and you can even use this shade as a highlighter.
Christmas Brush Collection.
£69. This limited edition brush set is a curation of some of their most popular brushes. 5 full-size brushes with a travel-friendly pouch that you can also squeeze more items into if you so wish.
It has a full coverage face brush, angled face brush, full coverage touch-up brush, eye smudge brush, ultra-precision liner brush.
There are SO many great items to choose from but if I had to pick 3 must-haves it would be one of the Luxe Jewel lipsticks, possibly the In The Flash eyeshadow palette and the Luxe Liquid Lips.
I will 100% be purchasing a bunch of these items to gift to friends and family. I think it will sell out pretty fast this year so get on it quick! As I’ve been writing this over a couple of days quite a lot has already been selling out and is sold out. It’s worth checking the Bobbi Brown website to see if they may re-stock some of the more popular items though.
!BLACK FRIDAY DEAL! I know you are probably sick of the BF word by now and it hasn’t even officially begun BUT Bobbi Brown are doing 20% off their entire UK website on Friday 29th November until the 2nd of December. They are also giving you a FREE smokey eye mascara if you spend £65+.
So if you are indulging in any of the above, hold up until Friday AM to snap up some bargains.
What do you think of this year’s Bobbi Brown Christmas offering? Are there any products that have caught your eye?
