This latest collection from Bobbi Brown has the nicest packaging we have seen in a while. It has a real 70s vibe going on with its chocolate brown leather palette and bright gold packaging.
The collection has been inspired by the late Lauren Bacall. Lauren Bacall was known for her sultry looks and distinctive voice but also for being a fabulous actress with a career spanning from the 40s through to the 90s.
For the skin, there are two highlighting powders in bronze glow and pink glow. Each comes in a mirrored compact and has a mosaic style pattern.
We only have the bronze glow to show you rather than the pink. It's quite a warm bronze gold so it sits better on a medium to darker skin tone rather than very fair skin.
Looks really beautiful dusted over the high points of the face or eyes. This compact is £34.00.
The eye shadow palette packaging is stunning. Chocolate brown leather with a crocodile skin effect. It contains a mirror and nine powder shadows in a mixture of shimmer and matte finish.
The eye shadows are all warm toned and the highlight which runs through them is a soft gold.
The colours are all quite muted with the exception of the darker bronze and black. I love the foil gold tones and the first two colours are great for a natural base and a soft contour colour.
This palette would work on all eye colours but would look amazing on a blue eye. Would also look beautiful on a darker skin tone.
No drop down from these eye shadows and colours are very buildable depending on the look you want to achieve. The large mirror in the lid also makes it a great travel palette (although no brushes are included). This palette is £59.00.
There are four colours for the lips from this collection. Each colour is a classic Christmas tone and are in a rich, creamy texture. Build the layers for a more opaque cover and definitely use a lip liner to create a defined edge.
|Beige Gold shimmer and Bordeaux|
Bordeaux is the most perfect Christmas red, like a fine glass of Malbec! The Beige gold is not a colour that really interests us as it is quite gold on a fair skin tone but if you are blessed with olive or darker skin tones then this would look great.
The lipsticks are £22.00 each.
