This is a very simple and small collection from Bobbi Brown but I couldn’t like it more. For a start, I love the Bobbi Lip Tints because they’re so balmy and leave a stain under the glossy finish so you get just a bit of a tint. This one (Bare Pink Sparkle) has a glitter element which I don’t love, but otherwise I can’t recommend them highly enough despite their £25.50 price tag!
The item I really love though is the Limited Edition Extra Glow Skincare Palette (£34) housing a phial of Extra Face Oil, Remedies Skin Salve and Extra Soothing Balm. Basically, if you’re heading to the slopes, it’s a gorgeous pocket sized skin care emergency kit in case the wind chill gets to you. I don’t remember seeing anything like this before but it seems an ingenious way to hold a small amount of skin care and make it completely portable. The brush on the top is showing the Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm (£44.50). Same moisturiser as before but this time infused with a bit of illumination (think MAC Strobe and then dial it down a couple of notches for the finish). The one I have is Bare Glow which is almost impossible to catch with a lens but it did give my skin extra sheen and highlight.
Finally, Opal Glow Highlighting Powder (£35.50) – forget all the subtlties of what you’ve seen from the rest of the collection; this one is high beam and all of the glow! It’s ultra light reflective with I think you’d say a rose aspect to it – quite a hard colour to define.
Here it is with the Extra Lip Tint.
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules
I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
I have to say that the swatches aren’t really reflective of the ‘glow’ elements to this – but, January light. From bottom to top: Illuminating Moisture Balm in Bare Glow, Extra Lip Tint in Bare Pink Sparkle and Opal Glow. It’s all HERE.
