Hitting counters in January (which is, ah - right now!) is the lluminating Nudes Collection from Bobbi Brown. It's a nicely pared down, if slightly unispiring, collection of essentials and the look is all about clean, wearable nudes, good skin and a tailored brow.
First up is a new skincare product: Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm (€56). It has lychee extract and caffeine as well as fine pearls to give a bit of radiance to skin. As well as working as a moisturiser for normal to dry skin it can be layered on top of moisturiser as a radiance booster.
For this kind of look your base should be sheer and glowy, no heavy foundation needed thank you, so the range also includes a CC Cream (€37). There's two new shades (Blush Nude and Rich Nude) joining three current ones. As well as offering sheer coverage it has a SPF 35 (if you're making a beauty New Year's resolution, wear SPF every day!)
There's two new shades of the Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up (€23), Slate and Brunette, in the collection too. As well as filling in and grooming brows, it can also be used for root touch to tackle sneaky grey hairs.
Bobbi Brown lipglosses are great, they're smooth and not too sticky and this range has three sheer, neutral shades (Almost Nude, Almost Peach and Almost Pink) at €24 each.
Finishing off things are three sparkle eye shadows, an exising shade (Ballet) and two new ones White Sand and Golden Peach.
The range is a limited edition and if you head to a Bobbi Brown counter, there's a complimentary Radiant Beauty Makeup Lesson available to show you how to create the look.
Will you be investing in some New Year makeup? Or are you going to wait till the new season is in full swing?
