Bobbi Brown: Pink and Red, Brighten, Sparkle & Glow Collections. Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick and Retouching Powders

Bobbi Brown Cosmetics are releasing quite a few new collections with some  very exciting products.

My personal favourite has to be the Pink and Red collection which includes eight products for lips, cheeks and nails. Looks like a prefect collection for the Valentine’s Day, or any day, really! You can’t go wrong with red and pink as it is very feminine and timeless.

Sheer Color Cheek Tint (£18/$26) in Sheer Cherry and Sheer Pink, Lip Gloss (£17/$24) in Cherry and Pretty In Pink, Nail Polish (£11/$18) in Pink Valentine and Valentine Red and Creamy Matte Lip Color (£18/$24) in Heart (red) and Hot (pink).

 Brighten, Sparkle & Glow Collection

I personally really like the makeup on the promo photo, very appropriate for the name. The products from this release should work as a great pick-me-up after the holiday, most of them even start with “Brightening”.

Let’s take a look:

Extra Soothing Balm  (£40/ €62.50/$58)

Contains  Avocado, Geranium and Rosemary Oils to moisturise and plump up skin. Also can be used over the makeup on the cheekbones to give skin a glow.

Tinted Eye Brightener (£19.50/ €27.50/$30)

Soothing lightweight brightener which reduces the appearance of under eye circles and evens out skin.

Porcelain Bisque (New), Light Bisque, Bisque, Medium to Dark Bisque, Dark Bisque, Porcelain Peach, Light to Medium Peach, Peach (New), Dark Peach and Deep Peach

High Shimmer Lip Gloss (£17/ €24/$24)  in Bare Sparkle

Brightening Finishing Powder  (UK £40 /€55.50/$50)

Six luminous pastel shades  can be used on their own or blended together for a  natural, healthy finish. Formulated with Mulberry, Grape, Scutelleria and Gentian Root Extracts – brightens and corrects the skin, sets makeup in place.

Shades: Porcelain Pearl (New), Brightening Nudes.

Sparkle Eye Shadows  (£20/€30/$28)

Gold Star (New), Silver Moon, Ballet Pink, Mica, Cement, Black Chocolate. See my review of Black Chocolate here.

 There are also two more collections which are not yet available in the UK/EU but should be out here, too.

Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28)

We finally get to see Katie Holmes on the promo.  These are promised to last for eight hours  without creasing or fading.

  • Violet Plum, a light lavender.
  • Bark, a rich brown.
  • Forest, a cool emerald green
  • Golden Pink, a shimmering pink peach.
  •  Iced Blue, a shimmering blue grey
  • Sand Dune, a medium beige tan.
  • Shadow, a smokey blue grey.
  • Vanilla, a warm cream.

 Bobbi Brown Retouching Powder ($36)

Now this should be a real gem for the PROs,and not only. You can see all the details on the picture below.

And what do you like the best?

    The shade of red seems beautiful, the nail polish especially. I’m very interested by the concealer.& Retouching Powders.

  2. Tina says:

    That “Sparkle & Glow” visual: SO pretty! I think I’ll be getting the lipgloss from that collection (my appreciation of Bobbi Brown lipglosses is ever growing)!

    I bought the sheer pint cheek tint and it’s beautiful. It does look a little scary when you put it on first, but once you blend it in, it looks gorgeous! I also had a good look at the sparkly eyeshadows and my favourite would have to Cement (bottom left in your visual). Pricey (in Euros!) but they’re huge so would last forever.
