Hi guys, now I don’t know about you, but I always look forward to the seasonal releases from Bobbi Brown, as they certainly know how to do glam at this time of year. With fab sets, gorgeous packaging (as always), plus some extra sparkle, get ready for some treats with their 2019 winter/gift collection.
If you’ve caught my Instagram stories recently, you may have spotted the odd sneak peek from Bobbi Brown’s seasonal collection 2019. Wether you simply want to get daytime gorgeous, or glam up for those festive parties, there’s plenty of choice. There’s fabulous gifting ideas, with skincare sets and makeup from laid-back to luxe, and for ages 18-80. As well as the sophisticated glam of the Luxe range, which I just love, there’s a vibrant twist to some of their new packaging.
Hydrate & Glow Skincare Essentials (limited edition)
Wether for natural glowing skin, or party look prep, this would make a fab gift for any skincare addict. Get makeup prep in order with plump, dewy skin, with this 3 piece set to help hydrate and brighten in winter. On my Christmas wish list since it came out, it contains one of my must-have products, a Lip Tint.. and with sparkle too!
Contains : Full-Size Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm in Golden Glow,
Mini Hydrating Eye Cream,
Full-Size Extra Lip Tint in Bare Nude Sparkle
In A Flash Eyeshadow Palette
A glam palette featuring 12 pretty and wearable shades for use day and night. Find details and swatches in this post
‘Love In The Afternoon’ Eyeshadow Palette
A pretty palette in this seasons glam psychodelic packaging, with full mirror and magnetic closure. Contains 8 shadows including matte, metallic and chrome metal finishes, all ready to create gorgeous rosy-nude eye looks for day and night. I love these eye brightening shades for seasonal daytime glam!
Love In The Afternoon Palette
Soft Smouldering Long-Wear Eye Kit
This is a fab set for any BB fan, as it contains 3 of the Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks and a mini Smokey Eye Mascara. Two are matte cream shadows, and one is a sparkle. I love this set, as it allows quick, fool-proof application, and wears until you remove it. Super portable for on-the-go eye makeup switch-ups, they’re fab for creating a smokey eye (which I love in winter), or simply a basic colour wash.
Long-Wear Shadow Sticks swatches from top to bottom : Rose Quartz (Sparkle), Bark, Nude Beach.
Gorgeous, sophisticated glam Luxe packaging!
New Luxe Eyeshadow Rich Gemstone
These richly pigmented eyeshadows give a glossy sheen, but are powders that provide a beautiful molten effect. Claimed to last up to 8 hours (sorry, my days of partying hard are over so I’ve not put these to test for that long). I love the finish they give, and if applied with a damp brush, the result is an uber glam effect!
Above ~ Royal Sapphire (blue), Opal Moonstone (rose gold). Also available is Citrine (bright gold).
This creamy, bendable liner in Black Onyx will help you achieve a winged or smokey eye. I’ve only used this a couple of times, but I got a fab smudged out look, and when trying a flick, found this a good shape to hold (having arthritic fingers), made it easier to hold than a pencil and gave a nice corner flick.
Luxe Illuminating Powder
I’ve fallen in love with this pearly finish powder, even the packaging is ‘glamtastic’. In shade Golden Hour, this can be blended onto the skin with a brush to get a lovely healthy, glowing finish. It’s fast becoming one of my faves for the winter months ahead, and actually think it’s my fave BB highlighter yet! I add to high points, and when the light hits…hello! Don’t worry, it’s not glittery, it simply gives skin the appearance of being super hydrated, with an almost wet look. Too gorgeous!
This gives a real glow to the skin with a lit from within look
Luxe Jewel Lipstick (Limited Edition), & Luxe Liquid Lip Rich Lustre
Offering hydration and sparkle, these limited lipsticks can be worn on their own, or over your fave lip shade. If you don’t like glittery sparkle, I’m not gonna lie, it won’t be your thing. If however, you want your lips to ooze glam sparkle, you might just want one when going ‘out out’. Available in 3 pretty shades but selling out super quick.
I love BB’s Liquid lipid have a few, but these versions are more glam glosses. Non sticky though, and pretty shades providing hydration, with high shimmer and shine for the party season and beyond. Available in long-lasting lustrous shades ; Crystal Ball, Gold Star, Sparkling Sand.

Luxe Gems Eyeshadow Palette
Well hello pretty! What can I say? A luxurious case, 7 jewel toned shades offering multi-dimensional metallic finishes…simply stunning. This palette is a top of the range, spoil yourself rotten, go all out, beauty bonus. One problem, they are selling out left, right and centre..but it’s worth checking back with various online stockists or visiting Bobbi Brown stores/counters. The finish of these shadows is exquisite, a real BB bonus in my book.
Swatched below, gems that will be loved for a long time..
Luxed Up Lip Duo
These come in a super handy size to pop in a small clutch or pocket, so you always have your glam lippy to hand at the party (or wherever). BB’s no.1 selling lipstick, these new duos have amazing moisturising formula with super rich pigment (just check out the swatches below!) My fave, and shade that suits my skin tone, is Parisian Red..ooh la la!
Available in 2 colour duos ~ Berries : Hibiscus and Desert Rose. Classic reds : Parisian Red and Red Velvet
Mwah! Top to bottom : Parisian Red (orange-toned), Red Velvet (blue-toned red), .
Branded Velvet Makeup Bag (large)
I love a Bobbi makeup bag, and own a couple but none like this one. It is not your average size bag, it will hold all your fave makeup, along with some skincare products too (see below)! Probably the size of a wash bag, this black velvet BB branded edition has gold-toned hardware, for that luxe touch, and would make a lovely gift for any makeup junkie!
If like me, you have last years velvet brush case, bingo.. matching set
A few of these pieces might be specific to the festive period, but the vast majority will see you through seasons ahead. All the jewel tones and beautiful packaging of this collection scream glamour. Although, these products are not just aesthetically pleasing, as always, they deliver great formulas, pigment and staying power. It’s one of the reasons I’ve stayed loyal to Bobbi Brown over many years.
I’d love to know what’s are on your wish list from the collection!
