Happy end of the week! I hope you all have a nice relaxing weekend lined up. We have a flat inspection coming up so I don’t see much relaxing in my immediate future.
Today I am sharing with you some information on the new releases by Bobbi Brown. On the 3rd February (have I mentioned February is my favourite month?) Bobbi Brown released a collection of wonderful new products.
Despite not being able to attend their wonderful press release event last month I was sent two of their new products to have a look at and get a taste of what these new collections have to offer. I have had pretty much zero experience with Bobbi Brown makeup before and so the chance to get to know their makeup was really exciting!
1. Nude Glow Collection
First off is the Nude Glow Collection, a flattering, lightweight combination of products in a variety of pinks and golds.
I am always a sucker for lip products and so I was excited to try out their Sheer Lip Colours (RRP $54). Think a product along the lines of a lip butter; lightweight, easy to wear and adds a beautiful touch of colour. I was expecting these to be super moisturizing and I wasn’t dissapointed, thanks to all the luxurious oils and butters that these are formulated with.
As with a lot of lip butters or tinted balms I wasn’t imagining these to be super pigmented however the one I was sent was rich in colour with one single swipe. Out of the trio I tried out the darkest shade (Pink Rose) so maybe the others aren’t so pigmented but regardless I was very pleasantly surprised. The colour is a mid-toned pink with a slight mauve tone to it. Its rich but wearable and perfect for transitioning into Autumn.
In this collection there are other trios despite the Sheer Lip Colour, featuring nail polishes, eye palettes (I have my eye on this one) and a Brightening Finishing Powder which looks beautiful.With just the perfect amount of pinks and luminous metallics as well as some flattering nudes this collection is sure to feature something for everyone and would be especially beautiful for a glowing bridal look.
2. High Shimmer Lip Colour
Wait, wait, I know what you all are thinking (or at least what I was thinking). High shimmer lips? No thanks. One thing that scares me is going out in public with an overly shimmered up lipstick that makes me look 40 years older and makes my lips feel gritty.
Luckily this is not what Bobbi Brown has achieved with their new High Shimmer Lip Colours (RRP $54). By contrast, the shimmer in these lipsticks is much more natural. Bringing a glow to any makeup look and keeping you looking youthful and fresh. There were 12 shades released with this new multi-dimensional effect that aims to stay wearable and moisurizing.
The colour I tried out was Pink Gold Shimmer and to be honest it is a peach nude shade that I would not normally reach for. Out of curiosity I wore this a few times and although I don’t think the colour is super flattering for me I often reach for it when I want something to brighten up a makeup (or lack of makeup) look.
The shimmer took me a little while to feel comfortable wearing but eventually I got used to the fact that you can wear a little shimmer on the lips and still look natural. I think Bobbi Brown have done a good job treading the very dangerous line of shimmer in lipsticks. Similar to the Sheer Lip Colour this lipstick was moisturizing to wear which is a must in my book.
The lasting time for such a natural colour wasn’t super long but it is easy to apply and doesn’t cake around my lip lines or dry patches. I would love to try one of the more berry toned colours in this range.
Both of these collections bring a luminousity to your makeup which I appreciate. I like the fact that these are also both easy to wear and comfortable on the lips. The Sheer Lip Colour was my favourite as it is the perfect colour and pigmentation whilst feeling like a lip balm. I can see this easily becoming a staple in my routine.
If you want to check out these products in person head on down to the wonderful Bobbi Brown store at Britomart.
Have a great weekend!
Note: These two lip products were sent to me to try out however this blog post contains my opinions and my opinions only.
