Bobbi Brown Wants Us To Brighten, Sparkle & Glow for SS13

Bobbi Brown Brighten, Sparkle and Glow SS13

We sneak peeked this for you before Christmas and promised to bring you all the lowdown on Bobbi Brown's gorgeous new collection for Spring. Fresh and pretty, Brighten, Sparkle & Glow is all about giving our partied out winter faces an instant lift for the new season. Though there's a few lip products in the collection, it really focuses on sparkling eyes and a bright complexion - and the good news is, it's all on counter now!

Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder

New and exciting, this gorgeous Brightening Finishing Powder had both Aisling and I oohing and aahing and swatching like mad when we clapped eyes on it at the launch. With 6 pastel shades that blend together for an illuminating effect, this is also formulated with botanical ingredients so it has skincare benefits, too. And it feels SO lovely: soft and silky with a refreshing cooling effect. Two shades are available for €55.50.


Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow and Peach Skin Perfecting Retouching Powder

These Sparkle eyeshadows are, I think, my very favourite offering from the brand. I was mad about this one but it's gone walkies and I was like a woman possessed for a few weeks trying to find it. Then Gold Star came into my life and satisfied my craving for subtle shimmer and grown up shine - for now. There are six of these in total but they're limited edition, and I'm tempted to pick up a handful - they're not cheap at €24, but they are so flattering and easy to wear.

Launching at the same time as the spring collection are five shades of Skin Perfecting Retouching powder - lightweight colour correcting products that also reduce shine and give a smooth and flawless finish. Shades include white (brightens and illuminates), pink (counteracts sallow undertones), yellow (tones down redness), peach (warms up light skintones/evens out tanned and medium to dark complexions), and rose (gives light to deep skintones a healthy flush of colour). These are €35 and, like the Brightening Finishing powder, are also formulated with skin-friendly, plant based ingredients.
