NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Just Landed: The Bobbi Brown Surf & Sand Collection


A.K.A... a hefty contender for my favourite collection of the year. There have been a few amazing new releases lately, so I'm not putting all of my brushes in one pot, but it's a strong contender, carrying a little something for everyone. The second I saw the sheer lipsticks and palettes in this collection I saw what I can only call the beauty equivalent to dollar signs.

The Surf and Sand Palettes* are a travelling beauty addicts dream. Two palettes with eight shadows in each. Sand holds a beautiful variety of matte and shimmering neutral shades, and Surf carries a combination of matte nudes and shimmering pastels. It goes without saying that the Sand palette is my match made in heaven. There isn't a colour in the palette that I won't use and they all have just the right amount of warmth to them for my skin tone.

If you're a colour lover then the Surf palette will be far more up your street. For me the pastel shades will make amazing liners and if my second festival of the year wasn't a heavy metal one I would totally don this - I'll save it for some summer parties instead!

And then we have my last two favourites from the collection, the Sheer Lip Colour in Peach Sorbet* - a beautiful sheer peachy pink and the Longwear Eye Pencil in Bronze* - a rich, deep golden bronze. The lipstick lasts as well as any sheer lip colour - but it's the colour that's got me hooked. I'm actually having a serious talk with myself about stocking up on it as it won't be around forever. Decisions...

The Longwear Eye Pencil stays fairly true to it's long lasting claims - definitely a contender for a holiday beauty bag - and is just the most beautiful colour. It's fairly easy to smoke out if you grab a flat tipped brush straight after applying too. I have a tiny amount on in the photos above, just lightly smoked out in the outer corner to widen my eyes.

My only gripes? The lip pencil is limited edition *cries* and the shimmery shades in the palettes aren't quite as finely milled as I would prefer. Not bad at all really. I'm off to London today so you might just see me lingering around a Bobbi Brown counter considering the stock up of Peach Sorbet - the Brightening Blushes look pretty perfect too. Shall I just kiss my money goodbye now?

  4. I love the eyeshadows but I hate the packaging.. That can really put me off.. Especially when they're that expensive.

  10. How pretty is the packaging, I love how Bobbi Browns products are always packaged. So sleek and professional, although I would prefer the eye palettes to be plastic. Looks like a great collection that I might just have to check out.

  26. Lovely review Suzie. I eye those each time I am at the department store. I swatch all of them on my hand but found some of the lightest eyeshadows very very sheer. The lipstick looks amazing! Lovely makeup look you created. Xo, Alexandra

  36. These lipsticks are looking a little too similar to the Revlon Lip Butters to me to justify the price tag. The Sand palette, however... That's got me drooling all over it, it looks incredibly gorgeous! I'm a neutrals/bronzey gal myself so this looks right up my street! xx
