Christmas at Bobbi Brown's



Christmas is just over a month away. The streets are already beginning to look a lot more glitzier, decorations are around every corner. Don't lie to yourself-you are excited. This is also the time of year when all the beauty Christmas collections arrive in store. If you're after glamour and sparkle then you need to visit Bobbi Brown..

You all know by now that I think the Bobbi Brown Corrector is a lifesaver so I had high hopes for their Christmas collection and it doesn't disappoint.

Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Black* These work in the same sense as the jumbo eye crayons that have been popular this year. This shade in particular is one that is perfect for any smoky eye looks and it also works nicely as a liner slightly smudged out. Once this is on your lids it does not budge, even without primer which says something given my lids are prone to creasing any eyeshadows, cream or powder quite easily. 

Nail Polish in Siren Red and Chrome* The perfect Christmas nail combination, simply use the gold glitter as a feature nail or as an accent over the red polish. I haven't used Siren Red yet but will definitely be pairing it with the glitter next month. Chrome is such a gorgeous champagne-gold glitter. It is easy to apply and doesn't have the excessively gritty texture that some glitter polishes can have.

High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Pink Sugar and Candlelight* I received one of the glosses from Bobbi's Valentines themed collection earlier in the year and was thoroughly impressed by it. These glosses are pretty similar to that one with a touch more shimmer. Their non-sticky formula mean these don't feel uncomfortable on the lips. These glosses are quite sheer so they can be easily worn over lipsticks as well. I like pairing these with matte lipsticks as they make those feel more hydrating on the lips. 

Sequin Shimmer Brick Eye Palette* Bobbi Brown's shimmer bricks are always one of the first things I head towards when I'm in their store. They're sparkly, colourful and just so beautifully packaged. This eye palette contains a range of neutral shades. The sparkle is quite subtle, think Mac 'All That Glitters' so these colours are perfect for both day and night. I wore the two pinker shades yesterday with some loose glitter and it looked so pretty! This would make a great Christmas gift.
