Look at this beautiful collection!
Today I'm sharing some of the beaut Christmas collection available from Bobbi Brown this year. I couldn't believe it when all of this lot arrived on my doorstep, it's literally every makeup-obsessed persons dream isn't it?! I haven't had the chance to play around with makeup all that much lately so this is the perfect lot to enable me to get a bit more creative over the festive period. December is the perfect excuse to get all glitz with my makeup routine so I'm definitely going to be glamming things up more with these goodies. I've already tried out most of it, and even took some bits away with me to Prague and I can safely say it's all as beautiful as it looks. Keep reading to find out more about these gems and see a swatch or two!
Luxe Gems Eyeshadow Palette
I think the star of the show has to be the Luxe Gems Eyeshadow Palette. Bobbi Brown have absolutely killed the Christmas beauty releases this year with this little beauty, from the packaging to the formula, every little detail is perfection. Look at those perfectly embossed eyeshadow pans, I felt guilty even swatching them as it seems cruel to ruin them you know?! It's too late to cry about that now, but at least I have the images for the memories. To be fair, they still look just as good even after they're used because the colours are just that sparkly and beaut. For any fellow glittery-eye lover then this is the absolute ideal gift as they'll fall in love at first sight & swatch. It's one that will see you through both Christmas and New Years! The eyeshadows are so pigmented and beautiful, my personal fave is Sunstone, the gorgeous metallic nude/pink shade in the middle.
Luxe Eyeshadow in Royal Sapphire
Another beaut from the Luxe Gems range is the Luxe Eyeshadow in the shade Royal Sapphire, this is beautiful deep glittery blue - not a shade that I would personally usually opt for but it's so gorgeous that I can't wait to have a play around and step a little out of my comfort zone. I can imagine this one will look gorgeous under my lower lash line for a pop of colour!
Luxe Eyeshadow in Opal Moonstone
If you're more of a nude shadow kinda gal, Opal Moonstone is the perfect glittery number to add to your stash for every occasion. Both this shade and Royal Sapphire are super pigmented and gorgeous, and Opal Moonstone is the kinda one pot shadow that you can swipe over the lids for an effortless but glam eye look. Definitely a staple, I'm obsessed!
In A Flash Eyeshadow Palette
Let me introduce you to my new favourite everyday palette, the In A Flash Eyeshadow Palette. I am literally addicted to this one and have it permanently out on my vanity - not only that but it came to Prague with me too! It has the perfect mix of mattes and shimmers and it creates so many looks. The shades Nude Petal and Velvet Dusk are my two favourites, I usually mix them together and either apply in my crease combined with a shimmer all over the lid, or I sweep them both over my entire lid for a completely matte look. Nude Petal is by far my most used and I use it under my lower lash line and everything. All of the shades are so creamy and pigmented and last all day on my eyes! If there's one palette that you will absolutely get your moneys worth out of, it's this one.
Hydrate & Glow Gift Set
Not only do I rate BB makeup but I absolutely adore their skincare too. I've incorporated so many of their skincare products into my daily regime because they all work wonders. If you don't own anything from their skincare range then you're missing out - however, it's not too late. They've brought out a little Christmas set called the Hydrate & Glow Gift Set that features a hydrating eye cream, a lip tint and a golden glow illuminating moisture balm. All fab products that I truly love. I use them all daily at the moment! The lip tint is super moisturising but gives some shimmer to my lips which is perfect for Christmas time, the hydrating eye cream is an absolute winter essential and the illuminating moisture balm leaves my skin look beautiful and glowy. I love wearing it underneath my foundation for that extra glow on my dry & dull winter skin.
Luxe Illuminating Powder in Golden Hour
Definitely a new favourite highlight of mine, the Luxe Illuminating Powder in Golden Hour is the perfect peachy hue with golden shimmer and gives me allll the glow. It's a gorgeous little number for the festive season, and it's like silk, it just melts into my skin like a dream and leaves me looking like I've got a natural glow from within. I love it so much and would definitely recommend it for any glow-loving guys and gals out there. Also the packaging is stunning!
Smoke & Metals Palette
It's super hard to find this little gem in stock, and no surprises as it really is a gorgeous little palette. The Smoke & Metals Palette is full of beautiful neutral tones with a metallic blue thrown in for good measure. This is on the cooler side for my personal tastes, but even I think it's such a pretty little palette to add to your makeup stash. If you love versatile everyday kinda palettes then this one is perfect. I think the tones in it are perfectly suited to blue eyed gals too!
Long-Wear Eye Makeup Gift Set
Another gorgeous little gift set from Bobbi Brown this year is the Long-Wear Eye Makeup Gift Set which includes two full size long-wear cream shadow sticks in the shades Nude Beach & Bark and a full size smokey eye mascara. It also has one of their sparkle sticks in the shade Rose Quartz, these were limited edition and aren't available anymore so that makes this set super attractive - grab one whilst you can! I love their cream shadow sticks but their sparkle sticks are out of this world and the smokey eye mascara is my new everyday favourite, I love how it makes my lashes look! I currently have lash extensions but I use it on my bottom ones and it makes them so long and fluttery.
Velvet Makeup Bag
Along with all the makeup & skincare Christmas releases, there's also a limited edition Velvet Makeup Bag that I'm in love with. It's so soft and fits in all of my everyday makeup bits. I actually took this away with me and it fit all my brushes and skincare in, it was fab! The perfect match to buy with any gift sets.
Luxe Jewel Lipstick in Tahitian Pearl
This lipstick is absolutely insane. I've never seen one like it, it applies like a copper shade and it's something that's so different to your usual everyday shades. I think that makes it a lovely little gift for any makeup lovers this Christmas, it's so beautiful. The lipstick bullet is covered in gold specks of glitter and it's pretty to not only wear, but to look at too. A gorgeous little addition to a Christmas list.
Luxe Lip Colors
It looks like they're sold out of the exact set but they're also doing a little gift set that includes two mini versions of the Luxe Lip Colors in the shades Desert Rose & Hibiscus. Both such beautiful shades and it would be well worth buying the full sizes of these as just look at them! The perfect berry tones for the winter months. Desert Rose is actually more of a pinky rose and Hibiscus is a berry/plum tone but they both come up quite dark on me so I feel like they're beautiful rosey tones for the festive season.
I'm honestly so obsessed with this entire collection, every single product is so beautiful and pigmented. Will you be picking anything up?
