Bobbi Brown is one of my favourite brands, because I can basically guarantee that whatever they release in a new collection – there will be something I love in there. The Desert Twilight collection is a perfect example… a neutral lovers dream, the palette is STUNNING. And not just the shades, the sleek packaging, the big mirror. Everything about it makes me very happy.
The shades aren’t hugely pigmented, but enough for buildable colour – the bottom row faring a little better than the top row in terms of pigmentation. The creamy shade on the top left was the one that I found hardest to get any pay-off from, but that could partly be down to how pale my skin is too. These are lovely day time shades that can be built up for night or add a bit of one of the sparkle shades for an added bit of glitz.
The Brightening Lip Gloss in ‘Pink’ (a pale icy pink) is lovely in terms of texture and shade wise would work well to add a bit of a pearly finish to your favourite lipstick. Alone it does tend to look a little pale on me, but my lips aren’t overly pigmented – so if you’re lucky enough to have a pinkier pout than mine then give this a go! It has some pinky pearly bits that look lovely when they catch the light – and deliver the brightening effect in the product name.
From the collection I have to say the palette is the absolute stand-out for me. I adore it, with my personal favourite shades being the two on the bottom left – the ashy brown (could also be used to fill in brows) and the slightly peachy-nude shimmer.
I have a gorgeous shimmery brown glitter shadow to show you from Bobbi Brown very soon too – so keep an eye out!
