Now we're in March, I'm starting to get really excited for the summer! Something else making me excited for summer is the brand new Havana Brights collection by Bobbi Brown. It features some amazing neon coral packaging on some of the products and I can't wait to take it away on holiday with me!
The collection features two gorgeous Illuminating Cheek Palettes, three Art Stick pencils, six Dual-Ended Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks, three Art Stick Liquid Lips, a Mini Face Blender Brush and a stunning cosmetics bag (exclusive to Fenwick and Bobbi Brown direct).
I was kindly gifted three pieces from the collection so I thought I'd let you know my thoughts on them.
My favourite product has to be the Illuminating Cheek Palette in Peach (£35). It contains a beautiful, slightly shimmery bronze that is perfect for fair to medium skin tones, a pretty peachy coral blush and a peachy highlighter. I love wearing the combination of all three but they can obviously be used separately too. This will be so handy for taking away on holiday as it's compact and you don't need to take three separate products!
The Dual-Ended Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks (£28) are absolutely gorgeous. They tend to contain one darker and one lighter shade that pair beautifully together. I got the Truffle/Bronze combo and I love it so much. I love using the Bronze shade all over the lid and blended out with a brush (or you can use your finger!). Then use the lighter Truffle shade to highlight the inner corners and brow bone. They are super long lasting, so again would be perfect for holidays.
The final product I was given is the Art Stick Liquid Lip in Havana Coral (£21.50). These liquid lipsticks are a new launch and Bobbi Brown has a whole host of shades available, in addition to the three that have been released for this collection. They are so unique as they look like a pencil product but they are actually a squeezy plastic tube! You dispense a little bit of product out of the tube then use the applicator to spread it across the lips. You don't need much product as this is highly pigmented! I was also excited to see that these are a semi-matte product as I was expecting it to be glossy.
You can see me wearing all three of those products on my instagram photo here!
I was shown the full collection at Fenwick Newcastle on Friday and I honestly love it all! The cosmetics bag is so nice and I really like the mini brush with the coral handle too. I had some eyeliner applied whilst I was there and it was actually amazing! It was the new Long-Wear Waterproof Liner in Blackout (£24) and I really loved the effect on my eyes. If only I had a makeup artist to apply it every day for me as I'm rubbish at eyeliner!
If you're interested in getting your hands on something from this collection, rush to Fenwick from Monday 6th March as it's exclusive to their stores for the first three days of the launch.
