Bobbi Brown Greige Collection
So for Autumn Bobbi Brown introduces her new Greige Collection, a range of neutral shades Bobbi discovered during a home project featuring different blends of beige and grey hues. This helps give the classic, chic Bobbi Look, these neutral shades are paired with a few intense dramatic shades perfect for the impending Christmas festivities. Bobbi describes these shades as the perfect neutral for subtle to statement making looks, the range includes an Eye Palette, Intense Pigment Eye Liners, a Dual-Ended Eye Liner, new shades of Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick, Lipstick and Nail Polish. I have to be honest, other than on my nails, the word Greige does not conjure up images of chic wearable makeup looks for my self as a brownbeauty, but the Greige Eye Palette has changed my mind. This limited edition Palette features Bobbi's favourite grey and beige toned shadows, the palm sized faux leather navy palette with included mirror features eight shadows, four of which are new. Ivory is an off white matte that requires a bit of work to build up colour, but it's the colour I use least in the palette. Brown Haze (new) is a shimmer described as a medium smokey topaz, its a cool toned brown with lots of shimmer, I love this shade.
Twinkle is a straight up silver glitter shade, great over the top of other shadows to add sparkle, and great for the pending party season. Slate is a medium grey matte, it's pigmented and blends well, but requires a little building up to get full colour intensity. Greystone (new) is described as a mid tone grey taupe, it's a light matte beige, that would make a good base for the other shadows depending on your skin tone. Earth Metal (new) is a gold grey sparkle that looks great on top of your eye shadows to add a touch of shimmer to your look, another one of the shades I love. Greige (new) is a mid tone matte beige brown that I use as a base for the other shades. And last is Fog, a deep dark matte slate grey, to smoke out and add drama to your look.
Next up is the limited edition Intense Pigment Eye Liner in Midnight, there are two other shades. These are pressed powder liners, which can be used in conjunction with an eyeliner brush to line the eyes or smudged into the lash line to create a smokey look. They have been formulated without fillers and binders to deliver pure colour intensity for opaque colour payoff. This portable compact has three shades in total, a rich navy, a bright mid blue and a bold black.
I have to say the rich navy and bold black are very similar, and the bright mid blue is more of a dark navy, so applied to the eye on my skin tone they all end up looking the same. Shade similarities aside these are very pigmented, there is a little fallout upon application, but they are very blendable. Personally I like my eyeliner in pen format, but these also work great with a damp eyeliner brush to create a really intense, long lasting eyeliner look.
The Bobbi Brown Greige Palette is £52.00 and the Intense Pigment Eye Liner is £26.50.
