Just a quick post today to give you a little snapshot of this beautiful new collection by Bobbi Brown - which you can pick up here at John Lewis. After my recent indulgences (eg this Korean Skincare & Makeup Haul, the new Kevyn Aucoin ombre palette, Chanel Summer 2016, Estee Lauder Summer 2016, Elizabeth Arden Summer 2016?! It's terrible isn't it?!) I'm supposed to be on a bit of a self-imposed spending ban... but I couldn't help myself but to swatch everything for you - so let's see what's in the collection!

Highlighting Powder £34 | SO shimmery, Bobbi Brown have released 3 new shades of their embossed highlighting powder (remember Bronze Glow?) in limited edition packaging. There's a lot of shimmer in these and they give a really strong glow - not for the faint hearted! I wouldn't say the two bronzey shades are suitable for paler skintones either.

Telluride - a cool, rose-gold-beige with so much shimmer.
Afternoon Glow - a warm, bronzey gold with a ton of shimmer, definitely a wham-bam highlight.
Sunset Glow - a beautiful, pinky base with golden shimmer, not what I'm immediately drawn to but probably my favourite shade of the bunch. 

Sheer Colour Cheek Tint £19.50 | These are so soft, smooth and creamy, they're extremely slick and give a light pigmentation with a lot of glow.

Sheer Lilac - Less lilac and more of a cool-toned rosy pink, such a beautiful shade and I think my favourite of the three.
Sheer Pink - a bright, fresh mid-toned pink.
Telluride - a more muted, rosy nude, with brown undertones. 

Ash - a matte, cool toned, mid brown.
Nude Beach - a sandy, champagne gold with muted shimmer. 
Stone Pink - a darker, pinkish brown with pink and gold microglitter.
Velvet Plum - a warm, reddened matte brown. 

Bronze Shimmer Ink - a super pretty, bronzey-brown with gold microglitter.
Sapphire Shimmer Ink - a dark, inky navy with silver microglitter.
Twilight Night Shimmer Ink - a dark, smokey amethyst shade with purple and gold shimmer, a really interesting shade. 
Steel Ink - a steely pewter grey.

Tube Tint £17.50 | The formula of these glosses are delicious, really shiny and juicy and they feel comfortable on the lips. 

Bare Shimmer - a beautiful peachy-pink with gold microglitter, it actually wears really sheer on the lip.
Twilight Shimmer - a chocolate brown with gold microglitter.
Telluride - a rosy, creamy red that has a muted and earty tone.
Naked - a super gorgeous warm, rosy pink with a hint of nude. 

Pick up the collection exclusively here at John Lewis for now, and for those in the US, you can preorder now with Nordstrom (launch date later in July). 

What are your thoughts? I'm so itching to part with my pennies!
