‘Tis the season to be merry, tra la la la la la la la la! And why not sing your way to the shops, because Bobbi Brown has launched their Holiday 2013 Collection! Sales will begin at the very beginning of November, so you can make haste while the wintry sun shines. It’s no secret – Bobbi Brown is one of my favourite makeup brands, mainly because of their very wearable shades that seem to suit just about any skin tone on earth.
This year the brand celebrates the holiday season with two different collections, the Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Collection and the Bobbi Brown Holiday Gift Giving 2013 Collection.
The Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Collection is all about red carpet glam that never grows out of style. With 6 limited edition items and 2 new ones added to the permanent range, you can party in style with shimmery glosses and glittery nails.
The eyeshadow shades in the Old Hollywood Eye Palette, S$99, include:
- Gold Sparkle
- Opal Sparkle
- Fog Eye
- Golden Pink Metallic
- Chocolate Bronze Sparkle
- Candlelight Gold Metallic
The range comes with a dual-ended eyeshadow and eyeliner brush for easy, on-the-go application.
The Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick, S$45, comes in three new shades:
- Tuxedo Black (new)
- 24 Karat (limited edition)
- Bronze (limited edition)
The High Shimmer Lip Gloss, S$36, comes in the following shades:
- Pure Gold
The Nail Polish, S$29, comes in two shades:
- Tuxedo Black
- Siren Red
The Glitter Nail Polish, S$29, also comes in two shades:
- Solid Gold
For something less glamorous but yet equally classy, maybe you’d like to pick from the Bobbi Brown Holiday Gift Giving Collection. This collection features 7 new palettes, a lip gloss trio and 2 brush sets. Massive!
The Twilight Pink Lip & Eye Palette, S$110, contains 10 eyeshadow shades and 4 lip shades. It also comes complete with a mini lip and eyeshadow brush! The eyeshadow shades in this palette are:
- Dusk Sparkle
- Canary Shimmer Wash
- Cool Ivory
- Opal Sparkle
- Twilight Pink Metallic
There are four Creamy Lip Colour shades in the same palette:
- Twilight Pink
- Nude Pink
- Pale Mauve
- Bronze Pink
The eyeshadow shades in the Smokey Cool Eye Palette, S$108, are:
- Graphite Sparkle
- Smokey Grey
- Platinum Sparkle
The eyeshadow shades in the Smokey Warm Eye Palette, S$108, are:
- Antique Gold Metallic
- Golden Chocolate Metallic
- Chiffon Sparkle
I cannot decide which of the two Lip & Eye Palettes I love more. One seems so prefect for day, and the other one seems great for just that – a date night.
These are the shades in the Lip Gloss Trio, S$77:
- Bronzed Heather High Shimmer
- Dusty Rose
- Pink Sugar Shimmer
The Old Hollywood Travel Brush Set, S$230, features 7 (one of them a 2-in-1) of Bobbi Brown’s well-loved brushes:
- Dual-Ended Concealor & Blending
- Touch Up
- Ultra Fine Eyeliner
- Smokey Eyeliner
For something less intensive and more for everyday makeup application, there is the Old Hollywood Mini Brush Set, S$160, which features 4 (one of them a 2-in-1) more commonly used brushes.
The brushes in this mini set include:
- Mini Face Blender
- Mini Eye Sweep
- Dual-Ended Mini Smokey Eyeliner & Angle Eyeshadow
- Mini Eyebrow
That’s all I have! It’s pretty impressive, isn’t it. I do recommend the brushes, especially since I own one of their mini travel sets from a few collections ago, and they’ve lasted well. I’ve got my eye on the Smokey Cool Eye Palette and the Lip & Eye Palettes – Bobbi Brown‘s palettes never fail!
What about you? Which of these would YOU get, if you could only pick one?
