Ok - at first I resisted, I swear!
I was in John Lewis to check out the new Bobbi Brown collection and, although I loved the tortoise case straight away, I didn't buy it.
The eye palette, I'm talking about... because the lipstick came home with me!
I don't have any brownish neutral lipstick in my possession so I decided I needed to get one for my collection and this is just 'the perfect' version: the pink undertone is very prominent, which is what I like.
Rich Lip Colour SPF12 - Soft Nude #18
The lipstick is creamy and smooth to apply plus very moisturising and light to wear - I'm completely sold on the formula; this is how I like to wear it: with a clear gloss on top, which brings out the pink in it.
Now, as you may have guessed from the
spoiler alert above - I had to get second helpings!
Honestly, I couldn't stop thinking about the palette and definitely couldn't wait another week to get it, so I order it on the Debenhams' website.
Sand Tortoiseshell Eye Palette
it's sooo gorgeous, isn't it? I'm loving the tortoiseshell a lot and also the hinges which let you slide out the bottom drawer. I'm nearly scared to use it in case I drop it... hehe :)
I chose the sand version, because it has got more interesting colours, in my opinion; a bronze version is also available.
|Top drawer l-r: Ivory, Hot Stone, Terracotta, Desert Sand|
|Bottom drawer l-r: Antique Rose, Black Chocolate, Sandy Rose, Gold Bar|
My favourite are Terracotta & Antique Rose - which I have used in the look below.
In my defence I got to say that I NEEDED this!!! ;P
I don't have any neutral, nude eye palette; for a while, I wanted to buy the Urban Decay Naked but then went sold out and then I lost interest in it... and comparing the two, I think the BB is far superior.
Subtle but flattering! What do you reckon?
