Bobbi Brown Summer 2019 review, photos, swatches, video!

I think the Bobbi Brown Summer 2019 collection is 76% of the reason I'm able to cope with the bad weather we've been having and the complete lack of sunshine.  The products are distracting me with their beauty and for that, I'm fierce grateful!  I was sent some of the limited edition products, so if you see anything you like, I'd hop on them quickly as they're going to be gone soon.

The first time I opened the Bobbi Brown Infrared palette, I fell in love because these shades were made for me.  I will never tire of warm toned eyeshadows and this has a really beautiful range of shades that makes it nice and versatile, thus justifying why it's ok to have another palette like this.

I hoped the shades would swatch as nicely as they looked and the did.  Ooh they big fat did.  There's a few mattes in the palette, with the majority of the shades being metallic shimmers that work best on me when applied with the fingers or with a wet brush.  They're soft, buttery and a joy to use.  And the mattes are just as joyful to use too.  If you're looking for an eyeshadow palette for your summer holidays, or if you're not going away this year and need to treat yourself because the sun doesn't exist here in Ireland right now, then you're going to want to check it out.

I mentioned the High Shine Liquid Eyeshadows on Instagram recently and I'm still using them loads. They've got a really runny texture thanks to the water based formula that feels cooling on the eyes when first applied.  Make sure to shake these really well before using them and wipe off any excess on the side of the tube before getting stuck in.  They take a couple of minutes to fully dry and during that time, it's best not to look up if you've applied them to the lids or else you'll have transfer.  Once you remember to shake the tubes to mix up all of the pigment, you'll be grand, but you'll see if you forget to do that, they'll be really sheer and patchy.

In the photo below, from left to right we have shade Copperhead, Gold Fusion and Molten Petal.  There's one more shade that I'm sure is equally as wearable as these.  Of course Copperhead is my favourite of the three because it's a green eyed girl's dream!

Next up we have the Bronzing Duo in Medium and Santa Barbara.  There's a lighter duo too for those with paler complexions.

Even though this is the darker of the duos, it suits my skin tone perfect and that blush?  Well that's summer radiance right there.  The bronzer is nice and cool toned, perfect for sculpting out some much needed cheekbones for me and the blush has the ideal balance of peach and gold for me.

I filmed a one minute video showing the palette and liquid eyeshadows in action if you fancy taking a look and will show the bronzing duo in an upcoming video!  There are some highlights in the collection too that I need to check out, so make sure to have a look next time you're at the counter.

Well played Bobbi Brown, you played a blinder this summer!

Happy Friday! Today’s This Is Not A Tutorial features some lovely summer eyes and lips - let’s get stuck in! I used the eye brushes from the @sarahkearymakeup Brush Set (Sarah has given me a code for yis lovelygirlybits10 for 10% off and lads the brushes are just gorgeous, so soft 😍 I absolutely love the Infra-Red palette from @bobbibrownuk and have been using it loads since they sent it. The mattes are soft and have great colour payoff and the shimmers pack a punch too once applied with a finger. I wanted to show you the @bobbibrownuk High Shine Liquid Eyeshadow in Copperhead in action as it’s the one I’ve been reaching for the most. Make sure to give the bottle a good shake to mix up the pigment! I apply it from the wand before blending the edges with a brush and fan my eyes to make sure it dries. These are so beautiful on. The mascara is also courtesy of @bobbibrownuk - the Smokey Eye Mascara and it’s one of my all time favourites 😍 I wanted to swatch three of the new lip offerings from @loccitane_uk_ire starting with the Fruity Lip Perfector, a balm that changes colour depending on your lip’s pH and on me it turns a gorgeous light pink. Next was the Fruity Lipstick in Provence Sunset which is an easy to wear pinky peach and these have a lot of moisture to them and slip too, so for a stronger shade like the last one, Red-y to play, you might need a lip liner. These are all in stores now along with other shades too that I need to check out and swatch. Happy Friday and thanks for watching! #lovelygirliebits #lovelygirliebits1minutevideo #bobbibrown #loccitane #summermakeup #irishbeautyblogger #40plusblogger
