Bobbi Brown Holiday Collection 2014 - Review & Swatches

By 00:42 , ,

Bobbi Brown Holiday Collection 2014 is a rather large one. Some of the palettes are already available in stores while the rest are expected to get in soon. The eye palettes and highlight powders come in gorgeous tortoise shell compacts reminiscent of the Tortoise Shell palettes of 2011. Personally I prefer when Bobbi Brown comes up with these tortoise shell ones because the packaging looks loads more exciting. I'm looking forward to the Highlight Powders because they look amazing. While waiting for the rest of the collection to come in, I thought I'd swatch these ones first.

Bobbi Brown Deluxe Lip & Eye Palette (Limited Edition) is a double-decker palette which offers 8 creamy lip colours and 8 eye shadows handpicked by Bobbi to flatter all skin tones. Love that this palette is a plum-pink-brown combination. Nothing says holiday like plum. The eye shadows are a combination of matte, metallic and sparkle finishes and can be mix and matched to create day and night looks. The lips colours are a combination of sheer, creamy and shimmer. These compliments the shadows like a dream. The three plum/mauve shades are beautiful. Retails at RM300.

Eyes: Ivory Shadow (Creamy white), Sandy Rose Metallic Shadow (Silver plum mauve), Chiffon Sparkle Shadow (Pale gold), Antique Rose Shadow (Rosy brown), Malted Shadow (Soft grey-brown), Bronze Pink Metallic (Mid-tone shimmering pink), Cream Metallic (Shimmering creamy white), Black Chocolate Brown (Rich black-brown)

Lips: Pink Sequin (Sheer pinky peach), Pale Mauve (Sheer pink mauve), Blue Raspberry (Blue raspberry pink), Black Cherry (Rich berry red), Pale Beige (Nude pinky beige), Coral Pink (Bright warm pink), Pink Blossom (Mid-tone blue pink), Rose Garden (Mid-tone shimmer rose)

If you're one for eyes only, the Bobbi Brown Mini Eye Palette (Limited Edition) is adorable. This on-the-go eye palette is housed in a two-tiered tortoise shell compact. It's the perfect size to drop into your makeup bag and bring it along with you. It's a combination of matte, metallic and shimmer shadows which you can use to create either a simple look or a smokey eye. Although the colours are pretty, I find that the colours are too cool for my medium skin tone. I would imagine that it'd be perfect for fairer skin tones. Retails at RM155.

Bone Shimmer Wash (Off white), Sugar Plum Metallic (Soft pink), Cool Ivory (Pale cool grey), Pink Rose Sparkle (Soft rosy pink), Nude (Pale nude), Opal Sparkle (Pale silver sparkle), Gold Sparkle (Champagne sparkle), Saddle (Dark grey-brown)

Bobbi Brown Cool Eye Palette (Limited Edition) features six cool soft to smokey shadows in matte and metallic finishes. A bit of a pink-grey palette, it does look pretty but I decided not to swatch it for the cool colours. This is a really good palette if you're looking to skip the sparkles. Retails at RM220.

Ivory (Creamy white), Pink Quartz Metallic (Warm metallic pink), Marble Metallic (Warm silver grey metallic), Smokey Grey (Brown grey), Almond (Soft neutral grey), Smoked (Rich black kohl)

Bobbi's Chocolates Long-wear Eye Trio is one for chocolate lovers. If you want to give blacks and greys a break, rich chocolates should be your go to. This comes with two Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Praline and Bronze Sugar, a full sized Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Dark Chocolate and a Mini Dual-Ended Cream Shadow/Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush for easy application. Praline doesn't see to show up well on me, but Bronze Sugar looks beautiful. Retails at RM250.

Praline (Neutral beige brown), Bronze Sugar (Shimmering golden bronze), Dark Chocolate (Rich black chocolate)

There's also the Bobbi Brown Mini Lip & Eye Palette which features shades for a classic Bobbi look. There are two shades of Lip Colours, High Shimmer Lip Gloss and three light-to-dark shades of Eye Shadow in Ivory, Cement and Black Chocolate. Retails at RM150.

Look out for more of the Bobbi Brown Holiday Collection 2014 coming out soon.
