A touch of Old Hollywood

Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Lipstick

Last week everyone was lusting after the NARS and Hourglass limited edition palettes, but they just didn't catch my eye enough to make an order. Instead I popped over to the Bobbi Brown website and realised how many things I wanted from Bobbi Brown, and I placed a cheeky little order. 

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Sandy Gold (Bobbi Brown, £18.50) - I've shared my thoughts on the Long-Wear Cream Shadows before when I reviewed the limited edition Navy & Nude collection. These are just a dream and I've been using Suede from the Navy & Nude collection almost every day. I wanted to pick up another because I find them lovely when used alone, but incredible as bases too and they are a million times better than both my MAC Paint Pots and my Maybelline Color Tattoos. Sandy Gold is a beautiful shade that had me besotted from first use; the colour of sand with the warmth and sparkle of true gold and a fine shimmer, just beautiful! I wore it on Saturday night to a house warming and the way it opened up and brightened my eyes was just perfect! With a smooth, creamy formula these babies are long lasting and easy to both apply and blend. Cream shadows which are 100% worth the investment.

Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Nail Polish in Pink Pearl (Bobbi Brown, £11) - This was a spur of the moment buy and I never realised that Bobbi Brown do polishes - although it seems the ones they currently have, are all limited edition. I just popped this on my nails for the first time last night, so except a little post later this week on what I think to this gorgeous, delicate and girly shade.

Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Lip Colour in Old Hollywood (Bobbi Brown, £22) - This lipstick, this beautiful, gold cased, special and very much so limited edition lipstick was the sole reason for my order in the first place, and I am smitten. From the limited edition Old Hollywood collection (which by the way, has some incredible pieces I am in serious lust over) Old Hollywood is the perfect red. The case is just stunning and it's like no other lipstick I own. The formula is true to Bobbi Brown lipsticks and if you read my recent review on the Bobbi Brown limited edition Rich Chocolate collection then you will know I'm a recent convert to Bobbi Brown lipsticks. Old Hollywood is a beautiful, bright orange toned red lipstick which is highly pigmented. I just can't get over how gorgeous the packaging is, such a stunning shade.

So that's my little Bobbi Brown haul and I love everything I picked. Bobbi Brown is a real favourite brand of mine and I cannot recommend them enough. They are worth the splurge, the products are so worth the investment and I've never been disappointed by a Bobbi Brown product before. Even better, I was thrilled with the service on the Bobbi Brown website; free delivery on all orders and any orders over £50 included three deluxe samples. I picked an adorably cute lipgloss sample, a mascara sample and a 'cosmetic bag' sample. I thought the bag would be teeny, when it's actually a huge, gorgeously made faux leather rose gold cosmetics bag embossed with the Bobbi Brown logo. It's stunning! I've never received such amazing free samples with an order and I will definitely be sticking to the Bobbi Brown website from now on when I decide to treat myself!
