Bobbi Brown Scotch on the Rocks Collection

Bobbi Brown Scotch on the Rocks Collection

Prepare to drool and extend your Christmas list as the Bobbi Brown festive collection for 2014 and has just landed and it is beautiful. Let me share a few pieces from the Bobbi Brown  Scotch on the Rocks Collection...

Bobbi Brown Warm Glow Eye Palette £59
Isn't this just divine, a small leather-esque compact that contains all the neutral eyeshadows a gal could ever need! Nine shades to be exact, the majority of which are soft shimmery hues which may not be pigmented enough for some. However if you enjoy soft washes of colour which Bobbi Brown are famed for this should be right up your alley. Along with the soft shimmer shades you have a few matte hues to define and add a little drama should you wish. Overall the matte shadows are more pigmented with only the lightest shade applying a little chalky. As the name suggests Bobbi Brown Warm Glow Eye Palette is in fact warm toned and really does make blue and green eyes pop!

Bobbi Brown Highlight Powder in Bronze Glow £34
There is two Bobbi Brown Highlight Powders within the Scotch on the Rocks to choose from, a bronze which I have and a light shimmering pink. If you have a medium to deep skin tone go for Bronze Glow as it will look phenomenal, lighter complexions I would recommend Pink Glow. The formulation is a dream - a silky soft, almost gel based highlighter which glides on to the skin to deliver a beautiful lit from within glow. If like myself you have enlarged pores then this is the perfect formula for you - it does not settle into the pores nor fine lines but delivers a silky, refined eye and light catching highlight. In terms of colour Bobbi Brown Highlight Powder in Bronze Glow reminds me a lot of MAC in Gold Deposit only without the chunky glitter or obvious shimmer particles. I prefer metallic based highlighting powders like the new Bobbi Brown Highlight Powder from the Scotch on the Rocks Collection as they are much more forgiving on the skin and the texture tends to wear longer on my oily skin than more traditional highlighting powders.

Bobbi Brown Scotch on the Rocks Lipsticks £22 each
There is four new lipstick shades to choose from within the Bobbi Brown Scotch on the Rocks collection: Beige Gold Shimmer, Bordeaux, Malt Shimmer and Sultry Red. I was kindly sent Malt Shimmer which appears to be more deeper in tone in the bullet rather than when applied to the lips. This is a warm toned, slightly red tinged sheer shimmery bronze wash of colour which will work with your natural lip tone rather than masking it. I see this as a fairly festive shade but as it is glossy in finish it doesn't look over the top in relation to the shimmer particles. Bobbi Brown Sultry Red is a classic blue toned red which screams old school glamour. In fairness Bobbi Brown Sultry Red isn't anything new in terms of colour but rather you are paying for the formulation which is delightful - creamy, well pigmented, not prone to bleeding or feathering and fairly long lasting. If you are looking for a red to see you through the festive season I would fully recommend this!

Bobbi Brown Scotch on the Rocks Lip Gloss in Bellini £18.50
Along with the above lipsticks there is three new and limited edition Bobbi Brown lipglosses to choose from. I have been gifted the shade Bellini which is a light, almost peachy pink that features plenty of golden shimmer which does help create the illusion of fuller lips. If you like NARS Turkish Delight Lipgloss then this is one you will most likely want to add to your stash. Bellini is one of those shades that layers well over the majority of nude and pink lipstick shades or of course can be worn alone. As this is a gloss it isn't all that pigmented and does have a slightly sticky texture but it is no way uncomfortable to wear.
