The Bobbi Brown Greige Collection* – available on counters and online now
I am so ready for Autumn now. From the fashion, weather to the makeup collections, I am ready to embrace the chillier nights and sixty denier tights all for an excuse to treat myself to a pumpkin spiced latte every now and again. I love this time in the beauty calendar as we start to see the Autumn Winter makeup launches creep into stores; lips are getting darker, eyes are more intense and smokey and skin is left bronzer-free and flawless.
True to form, Bobbi Brown have released a stunning new collection to welcome in the Autumn season comprising of a new eye palette, three intense pigment eye liners, two long wear cream shadow sticks, four rich lip colours and two new shades for your nails. The Greige Collection is inspired by the shade range Bobbi Brown herself discovered while mixing paint during a home project featuring the perfect blend of beige and grey hues.
For me, the showstopper from this new launch is the Greige Eye Palette (£52) which is the real centrepiece of the whole collection and offers us eight of Bobbi’s favourite grey and beige-toned eyeshadows. With a mix of matte, shimmer and metallic shadows ranging from the subtle to the striking, this palette has everything you need to make a statement this season. I love the mixture of hues and finishes and the navy blue packaging is particularly gorgeous. The pigmentation is on the softer side so if you prefer something a bit more intense you may want to skip to the intense pigment eye liners and shadow sticks!
Next up is one of the new Rich Lip Colours (£20) in Bikini Pink. Lightweight yet full coverage, these lipsticks are seriously lovely to use and Bikini Pink is just my shade! The texture is wonderfully smooth and moisturising and stays on for a good few hours. If you fancy rocking the darker, wine-stained lips this Autumn then I recommend picking up Crimson or Rose Blossom.
Finally we have two more offerings for the eyes; the Intense Pigment Eye Liners (£26.50) and the Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks (£21). The Intense Pigment Eye Liners are new to the Bobbi Brown makeup range and offer us a unique pressed powder liner in a very handy, portable compact. The colours are richly pigmented and can be used to execute a precise even line or blended and smudged out for an instant smokey eye. These mini palettes seriously pack a punch and are the ultimate must-have if you love you eyes heavily lined for serious statement look. Each compact has three pigments, two rich liner shades and a standout colour to create a range of eye looks. I have Midnight which combined a gorgeous navy blue and charcoal black either side of a striking pop of blue.
Finally two new shades have been added to the ever-popular Cream Shadow Stick range; Greige and Midnight. These sticks are great at gliding on smoothly and giving you the freedom to line, define, shade, smoke and highlight the eyes in one easy step. If you are digging the blue eye trend then I definitely recommend picking up Midnight which is a nice alternative to your normal black liner and will give you a smokey eye look quickly and easily!
