I know I’ve been doing a lot of posts on make-up recently, but there’s just so many divine collections in store at the moment that I can’t possibly not showcase them!

The ‘Holiday 2013 Collection’ & the ‘Old Hollywood Collection‘, both by Bobbi Brown, are at the top of my must-have list and are available in stores now.

But first…..

One of the first launches I attended when I became a beauty editor (I was at sarie magazine at the time) was a Bobbi Brown launch. I remember playing with the make-up at the launch, listening to Bobbi’s story and thinking how remarkable and inspirational she is. Then, as the launch ended, I was given practically the whole collection to write about and try. I COULD NOT BELIVE IT! It was that moment that pretty much cemented my career as a beauty editor / writer.

Since then I’ve been a devoted ‘Bobbi’ (as well call it in the industry). All the collections created by this powerhouse of a women are developed with the needs of women in mind. I love the following quote by Bobbi Brown; ‘Make-up should make you look like you, only better’. And these collections surely will!

The Holiday 2013 Collection is a gorgeously edited collection of eye and lip palettes, glosses and shimmer powders.



  • The ‘Date Night’ & ‘Everyday Pretty’ Lip & Eye palettes (R350 each) contain three eye shadows, two creamy lipcolours and a gorgeous gloss.
  • The ‘Twilight Pink Lip & Eye Palette (R850) contains 10 eye shadows in mix & match matte & shimmer textures & four shades of creamy lip colour that compliments every skin tone. I think this is the ‘must-have’ from the collection.
  • The ‘Smokey Cool Eye Palette’ (R560) is a carefully edited mix of six eye shadows for those who prefer their ‘smokey’ eye on the cooler side.
  • The ‘Smokey Warm Eye Palette’ (R560) is great for those with hazel or brown eyes.
  • The ‘Sequin Shimmer Brick Eye Palette’ (R690) gives eyes a soft wash of pearlescent colour.
  • ‘Nude Glow Shimmer Brick’ (R605) is great for giving the complexion a lit-from-within glow.

The Old Hollywood Collection features a range of irresistible limited edition items for eyes, lips and nails.

Wow! The twilight lip & eye palette looks amaze! Also quite like the gold nail polish.

Hannah, that is the palette to invest in. I’ve become quite a fan of Bobbi’s nail polishes of late – they go on beautifully and last quite long, even without a top coat. Go on, spoil yourself. X

I love all of these products! I would not be able to choose…but the Old Hollywood palette is definitely high on my list.

I have the Cool Nudes Eye Palette and it’s amazing – Perfect for those with green & blue eyes. Also love the Old Hollywood Palette.


The Old Hollywood Eye Palette is stunning!! Neeeed 😉
