Bobbi Brown Wine & Chocolate Holiday 2016 Collection - Review & Swatches
It's that time of year again! The Bobbi Brown Wine & Chocolate Collection for Christmas as well as Holiday Gift Sets are already in stores. Wine and Chocolate make for a beautiful Christmas inspiration. As Bobbi Brown puts it - "Dark chocolate and red wine are two of my favorite indulgences. And over the years, the rich shades of both chocolate and wine have inspired some of our most popular and gorgeous colors. To celebrate our 25th of the year, I’m introducing the Wine & Chocolate Collection featuring our most irresistible pairing yet."
The Bobbi Brown Wine & Chocolate Holiday 2016 Collection consists of two eye palettes - Wine and Chocolate, four Sequin Eye Shadows - Chocolate, Preseco, Silver Heather and Rose Gold, Luxe Lip Colour - Uber Nude and Tawny, Brightening Blush - Warm Cocoa and Pink Truffle, Nail Polish - Wine and Chocolate, Angled Eye Shadow Brush and Smokey Eye Liner Brush.
The packaging is lush! Some having a matte gold finish which I love and others with a dark brown leather finish. I love the matte gold finish, you don't get finger prints on it. Have to say it's one of my favourite packaging yet.
The eye palettes comes with four eye shadows and three shades of Intense Pigment Liner. Wine Eye Palette is a warm tone palette and looks beautiful on warm skin tones. I personally like this one. While the Chocolate Eye Palette is a cool tone palette.
The Sequin Eye Shadows are full on shimmer shades which would work really well on top of a base, cream shadow or to finish off an eye look for that extra something especially for the party season. When I swatched these shadows, it's mostly shimmer and it didn't show to well on it's own.

There are two new Luxe Lip colours for this collection - Tawny and Uber Nude. Uber Nude is a pink toned nude while Tawny is a medium natural brown. I don't usually get attracted to a strong brown shade but Tawny is gorgeous. I saw it on some with fair skin tone and it really stood out, while it me it turned out somewhat a natural shade. Perfect for both day and night.
Some of the Holiday Gift sets are already available. I think you might have already seen The Original 10 - 25th Anniversary Lip Collection. Definitely one for the collector. The gift sets also come in the matte gold and leather finishes.
There will be more coming to stores so drop by and check them out!
