Apart from the insubstantial plastic tray (it’s time to go cardboard, folks) that these five mini lipsticks are housed in, I can’t find fault with the Bobbi Brown Lip Crush Mini Lip Colour Kit. It’s so sweet and a very careful colour edit to make them as near to suit-all as they can be.
In typical Bobbi style, until the shades veer to red, they’re fairly neutral – and medium pigmented in a matte satin formula that feels quite balmy on the lips. I think it’s really one for those who don’t do ultra bright lips, statement lips but like non-draining neutrals. I’d pop any of these in my pocket to take out and about. The BB website gives an £88 value and the set is £39.50 just nudging in at under the £40 mark. It’s a limited edition set.
From bottom to top: Ruby, Lilac, Bare, Babe and Regal. It’s HERE. If you’re spending over £55 this you get a free five piece mini skin care set (this week) as well – oh, and gift wrap is free whatever you spend.
The other ‘mini’ that caught my eye is this little quad (reminds me of the Capri nudes palette) with a mini lip colour in Brown.
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 very much like the neatness of this – it’s appealing to the (rarely seen) tidy side of my nature and seems like a good travel palette for a weekend away or a very easy handbag palette. It’s £32.50 HERE.
I am a sucker for a mini – I like the idea of at least the possibility of using everything up and making way for other beauty adventures. As it is, we’re all guilt stricken over the massive palettes we have that we know aren’t ever going to end !
