Bobbi Brown is easily one of my top five brands of all time, and out of all Bobbi’s many fabulous products, I inevitably fall the hardest for her holiday makeup. It’s all so fun and sparkly and festive! I instantly got into the holiday spirit the second I came across the display at my local Bobbi counter a few weeks ago—and that was in early October, a time when I’m usually only dreaming of Pumpkin Spice lattes from Starbucks and the Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory.
I could go on and on about pretty much everything in the collection, but I have a few favorites that I think everyone needs to rush out and buy just in case they sell out quickly. First on the list is the limited-edition Party Shimmer Brick. Highlighters come in handy around the holidays when you’ll find yourself wanting to add a little something extra to your look and this is one of the cutest ones I’ve ever seen. It has two sides to it— one silver and one gold—and they’re embossed with a martini glass and shaker. So playful and fun! And the shades are really versatile—you can use them as shadows, on your cheekbones, or even on top of lipstick for some extra shine. The only problem is that it's almost too pretty to use!
The Onyx & Silver Eye Paint Palette is also limited-edition and once you see the four silver and blue shades, you’re not going to be able to pass it up. The shadows are all highly pigmented and are made of the same formula as Bobbi’s Long Wear Eye Paint, so they have great staying power. You can use them wet for even more impact, and they all work fabulously together to create a colorful smoky eye. There’s also a Chocolate & Gold version with bronze and gold shades that’s every bit as gorgeous as the Onyx & Silver one. I must own them both!
I’m also totally obsessed with the Black Ruby Sparkle Eye Palette. The four shades of plum and pink are all pearly and shimmery with a ton of sparkle. It’s a more sophisticated glitter—the kind that looks good on grown women, not just twelve year-old girls. And the shades are so, so pretty. I have green eyes and the plum shades go so well with them—they make the green really stand out. I’ll be using this palette long after December has come and gone.
These are only a few of the many holiday offerings from Bobbi. There are tons of other palettes and gloss sets and even a new fragrance, Bobbi’s Party, which I really need to smell since her bath fragrance is one of my all-time favorites.
