If you’re a regular reader of BBB, you’ll know that I’m a smitten fan of Bobbi glosses – I’m almost embarrassed by how many I have and can barely pass a Bobbi counter without buying one. My picks of the Bobbi Brown autumn/winter 2010 are what I feel to be the stand-outs; the ones that aren’t the usual nude/neutrals, and my absolute favourite is the Lip Gloss (I know, so predictable!) in Red. If you normally shy away from reds like I do, you’ll find that the pigment in this is high enough to be a true red but not so high that you feel your lips have a life of their own. It’s sheer, super glossy and intensely flattering. There are two colourways; Red and Scarlet, but personally, I think Red is the one!
Limited Edition Crystal Eye Palette, £34 These shades are very shimmery and a welcome colour surge. The palette contains Amethyst Metallic Eye Shadow, Diamond Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow, Star Sparkle Eye Shadow and Peacock Metallic Sparkle Eye Shadow. Since purple is a key theme for next season, it’s bang on for trend eyes. On counters 1st October.
Limited Edition Mini Bobbi Brights Palette, £42 While on the one hand I feel we’ve seen this before, I can’t get round the fact that twenty pops of colour in one palette will come in very handy indeed! A mix of metallics, shimmers and matte liner shades, it’s really got everything you could possibly need for autumn eyes. On counters from 1st October.
Limited Edition Glitter Eyeliner in Gold and Silver, £14.50 each. I’ve already swatched this a press day (in gold), and it is nothing short of lush. The fluid is highly pigmented – it’s an immediate ‘wow’ – and the brush is perfect for precision lining. It is suggested that you add to the top and bottom inner corners of the eye to give a bit of a pop. On counters 1st November.
Lip Gloss in Red, £14 This just has ‘best-seller’ written all over it. Totally love it and if you are braver than me when it comes to wearing red lips, there are four lipsticks in Vixen Red, Vintage Red, Hollywood Red and metallic Jewel Red coming too. On counters 1st November.
