Bobbi Brown Christmas 2011

Bobbi Brown became one of my first high-end make-up items, when I was a teenager and my Aunty bought me a Bobbie Brown Shimmer Brick as a Christmas present – MAJOR brownie points for Aunty. Ever since then I’ve always had a bit of thing for all things Bobbi (and I still have that shimmer brick).
This year for Christmas, Bobbie Brown has some new slick packaging and some gorgeous products for the Christmas season and here’s a little peek at them… 
A gorgeous silver and gold highlighter palette with party-worthy design.

A tiny little has-everything you need compact
(The £2 coin is to illustrate how small it is)
Inside there are two lip shades and a lip gloss.
Although I guess the lip shades could also be blushers…
On the second level of the palette there are three lovely eyeshadow shades
Silver, Purple and Purple-black.

There’s also a small mirror in the lid and the lipgloss slots in nicely so it’s easy to carry.

A gorgeous neutrals palette – very slim and nicely portable.
Dual Ended Eye Liner with black and silver

Swatches of the black and silver liner – the black is lovely and glossy.
That’s just a sneak peak – I love the neutrals palette (as I would…so predictable) and the highlighter is gorgeous, but I’m interested to see how the gold and silver work on the skin together…
The little portable palette is amazing for it’s size – very pretty colours (I like that it’s purple shades of eye-shadow rather than typical smoky grey) and the lip colours are nice but a bit on the dark side for me. How amazing would it be if you could pick and mix a palette that was that size!?
Will report back again with swatches!
PR samples.

    The neutral palette looks like a much easier to work with alternative to the UD naked palette. 6 colours is much more 6am-morning-friendly than like… 20. Seems like a really good option especially at Christmas. I have a few girl friends who don’t really know what they’re doing with eyeshadow and so consequently just wear neutrals all the time. This would be perfect for them 🙂

    These are the kind of posts that I wish my husband would read. Mary Quant actually does very interesting make-up, with amazing packaging. They do pallettes where you can mix and match lipsticks (in different textures as well as a good shade variety)and eyeshadows. I gave one to a friend and it was definitely a gift to give proudly. I don’t represent Mary Quant, I just love the idea of an iconic English brand from 60s London.
