Bobbi is back with her annual holiday collection and it’s a cool edit of delicious neutrals studded with shimmering jewel tones. Inspired by her recent trip to South Africa, this years collection is perfectly curated for any occasion the season throws at you. Be it a softly smoked eye or a bright pout. Bobbi’s got you covered!
There are two major lines within the holiday collection. Firstly the Sterling Nights colour collection which includes her seasonal mix of products and the gifting collection consisting of palettes and value kits which are excellent for.. well, gift giving.
I’ll take you through both, with a bunch of swatches and also a list of products I believed were the best of the bunch! So sit tight, take notes, and most of all, enjoy the delicious photos!
Starting off with the iconic Bobbi Shimmer Brick. This season we have a gorgeous pink version up for grabs!
It’s a mix of pink and rose gold strips (oh so perfectly on trend!) to deliver that shimmering rosy glow! This swatches very smooth and imparts a healthy dose of pigment. Not for the faint hearted. The formula wasn’t glittery though or chunky, and I liked that it was quite fine. The glow can be controlled depending on the brush you use. You won’t be left with massive glittery bits I promise!
Here’s a swatch.
As you can see, all the colours swirled together creates an almost lilac toned pink halo. Sooo GORGEOUS!
Next up, another favourite. The newish Art Sticks.
For gifting there’s a perfectly curated set of three. With Brown Berry being the new shade.
Personally I love these jumbo lip pencils. They are HIGHLY pigmented and the colours always appear true to colour on the lips.
Also swatching these three glosses one go. Available as a set of three.
Next up! Brush sets!
There are two on offer. The Mini Brush Set perfect for your makeup bag and the Travel Brush Set which contains full sized brushes to take with you on vacation. Both come packaged in a silver leather case and a metal clasp opening. Very well made and such a luxurious gift to own.
Moving on to palettes, there’s quite a number to choose from ranging from SGD 64 – SGD 126. So you have something for every budget. Unfortunately I didn’t swatch them all. But I did get swatches of the largest one, the Deluxe Cheek & Eye Palette.
I must admit, most eyeshadows in this particular palette lacked good pigmentation. Only the blushes in my opinion were truly up to par with the regular range. I can’t comment as to how they would apply with a brush, but here’s a look at how they performed swatched.
The shimmer shadows did apply better than the matte shadows which I thought looked rather dry. However an eye primer should help loads with this palette.
And a closer look at these super cute mini sets.
Now moving onto the colour collection consisting of many exciting new products!
I have swatches of almost everything minus the palette seen here. (Do drop by here, for some gorgeous swatches of the eyeshadow palette!)
First up, my favourite. The brand new liquid Face Highlighters.
I’m loving the feel of the packaging. It’s glass and very compact! (probably not ideal for lugging around in your makeup bag though) Plus the clean black with the simple Bobbi Brown logo looks so exquisite.
According to the press release these are meant to be applied directly onto the face (after foundation) or mixed with a moisturiser/foundation for ‘buildable radiance’. The light reflective pearls impart a natural fresh sheen for that dewy, healthy, fresh look.
Also new to the Bobbi Brown portfolio are these baked Sequin eyeshadows. The celestial themed names seem fitting for these magnificent marbled beauties.
They swatched with good pigmentation though seemed slightly dry to the touch. Overall I believe they’ll look even better over a primer and give it better lasting power.
Saving the the best of the colour collection for last. The lipsticks!
I found it soo hard to pick favourites as EVERYTHING swatched with great pay off and was silky smooth.
The unexpected pop of orange came as a sweet surprise and Nude a perfect shade nude with a hint of rose for Fall. You can’t possibly go wrong picking up any one of these to be honest. I highly recommend!
Lastly, before leaving you with the price list for everything seen above, I hope you enjoyed this post and found it a worthwhile read! Do let me know which products caught your eye.
