I just have to show you some pieces from the new, Turn Up The Smoulder collection from Bobbi Brown. I am thrilled to have the matte eyeshadow quad, along with the gorgeous cream highlighter form the collection. There are also Crushed Lip Colour nourishing lipsticks with soft-matte pigment, (you can do like me and place a sneaky early order before their main launch!), plus handy long-wear gel eyeliner duo pots. This Autumn collection also has gorgeous new packaging to boot, so BB cosmetic addicts…prepare to drool!
The new ‘Turn Up The Smoulder‘ collection from Bobbi Brown, comes in sleek matte black compacts, and the Crushed Lip Colours, have each bullet colour incorporated into their casing. They all look very chic, a different take on the usual shiny packaging.
Downtown Cool Eyeshadow Palette – £32-50
A superb matte eye colour quad, with browns and greys to create either subtle day looks, or amped up to smoulder, with a smokey eye effect. The shades have fab dense pigment and blend really easily. These are flattering colours, not too dark as some smokey eye palettes can be, and these would suit all ages and skin tones, so you cannot really go wrong here.
Suitable as shadows and liners, (maybe even as brow powders), these shades blend well together to help define the eyes. Sadly, I cannot use mine until it is gifted later (it was bought as a present), but I managed to take some shots for this post, and have a quick play, then drool a while over these gorgeous matte shades. A lovely eye palette for gifting too.
Cream Glow Highlighter – £21
Now most of us love a good highlighter, especially when it looks natural on the skin, rather than trying to impersonate a glittery disco ball (there’s a time, place.. and age). This beautiful Pink Opal shade is creamy yet super lightweight, suitable to create a fabulous soft-focus glow on the skin.
This feels comfortable on the skin, producing a natural, dewy finish. I love it, and I am currently playing with different applications, either pressing on to the skin with fingers or using a brush for cream formulations. It gives a gorgeous luminosity to points on the face where light naturally hits. Great above a bronzer or blush and taken up to the temples, plus just above the cupids bow to accentuate a pout.
The effect from this is pretty and ethereal, producing luminosity with a very subtle hint of pink. Also a good product choice for drier skins, as some powder highlighters can feel too dry or even appear a little flat looking. Gals…I really think you need to try this!
Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Duo – £19.50 each
The best-selling Bobbi Brown gel liner is a must-have in any makeup kit, and the new smaller, limited edition duo pots make life even more convenient. There are 6 different duos available, each work well together or alone, with shades for all eye colours. With the fuss-free cream formulation that dries down to a soft, pigmented liner (although you do have smudge time), these waterproof shades stay put for 12 hours. All you need is a cream eyeliner brush and you are good to go, even the cat eye flick, is a pleasure not a chore with these beauties!

These little duos are a fab idea, as they can now be carried in a makeup bag for on-the-go makeup, so great for travel, and definitely for the party season ahead!
Crushed Lip Color – £24 each.
These new lipsticks provide the nourishing feel and properties of a lip balm, yet provide amazing pigment. The wearable formulas contain lip-loving ingredients of Beeswax, plus Vitamins C and E, and offer super long lasting colour that will not feather into fine lines.
There are 20 shades (yes 20!), available from nudes to pinks, to orange, red and wine tones and others in between, that to be honest, will see any lippy lover through all the seasons. Once you purchase a few shades that is, and I am sure, like me you will love the amazing array of colours. I have already ordered Lilac, and oh dear..have a further 7 on my wishlist!
If you want to check out all the shade swatches, watch this fab video by the lovely Hannah Martin, (BB Pro Artistry Manager), to see how absolutely luscious they all look!
