As you'll all know, Bobbi Brown has been a favourite brand of mine for many years... I mean, half my make up bag is taken up by a collection of BB products that I've tried and tested over the years, and my skincare routine is also mainly focus around the amazing Soothing Cleansing Oil, because I simply cannot get enough of the stuff!

Recently a PR package, from said brilliant brand, landed on my doorstep and it featured some of my old favourites, as well as an amazing new collection that I just had to share with you.

One thing I love about Bobbi Brown skincare is the amazing unique, refreshing scent that the products have. I always struggle to sum it up into words, but it's like a grapefruit, lemon scent that's just super revitalizing.

The 'Vitamin Enriched Face Base' is the main one I always think about in terms of the amazing scent. It's a cult classic for BB and is a thick, hydrating cream that doubles up as a primer. It evens out complexion with a balm-like texture and is perfect for combination and dry skin types.

I've had friends try it too who just simply LOVE the stuff for wearing under their make up, and say they found it help keep their foundation/make up in place throughout the day without ever feeling 'cakey' or like the cream had gotten heavier throughout the day.

It absorbs quickly into the skin, meaning it's great to combine with your everyday routine and the moisturising properties take care of any dry patches leaving skin super soft!

The 'Extra Eye Repair Cream' is a new one for me to try out. I'm not someone who's dabbled much with eye creams as of yet, but I was excited to give this one a go.

It's a rich cream that revives eyes, targeting fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles, with a combination of clary sage ferment and argireline to help boots the skin's natural collagen.

It feels really comfortable on the skin, with a soothing affect and definitely helps give me that more 'awake' feeling I've been lusting after. I've seen it described as an 'espresso shot' for your eyes and I totally have to agree with that.

I'd say a little really does go a long way with it too. It melts into the skin really easily and is great to use under make up to brighten your look.

Moving onto the new collection 'Luxe and Fortune', which is Bobbi Brown's nod to the Lunar New Year, you can see from the images above that from the packaging alone, it's a bit of an eye catcher.

The products are in a limited edition red and gold design, and the collection covers eye shadows and lips, as well as some face products too.

To start with, I must tell you about the amazing 'Jewelled Rose Eye Shadow Palette', which retails at £32. It features champagne and rose shades in both matte and shimmer finishes, which is the perfect thing for someone like me who loves warm, pinky tones in my makeup. The colours are lovely, light, and pigmented, without being too bold for day to day looks.

The palette itself is so aesthetically pleasing, so definitely one for those who are a bit of magpie for pretty products, like me!

It's overall, a great little palette for this time of year, when you're not quite ready to let go of the festive, sparkly looks.

Then we have the Luxe Lip Colour, which comes in 3 different shades. They retail at £28. Photographed here is the shade 'Rare Ruby'... and we all know I'm a sucker for a red shade!

It's formulated the same as the usual LLCs with a sumptuous colour, creamy formula and shiny finish. The colours are always amazingly pigmented from Bobbi Brown, and this doesn't change for 'Rare Ruby' either.

The packaging is obviously gorgeous and definitely lives up to the 'Luxe' name, as does the lipstick itself, as I find there's definitely a richness to the texture and the colour looks super glamorous.

Last but not least we have the Luxe Liquid Lip, retailing at £28 also. This comes in 2 shades, photographed above is 'Pink Crystal'.

The Liquid Lip's from Bobbi Brown are a favourite of mine. They're a long-wearing lip colour that leaves your lips looking super lustrous, gliding on effortlessly, without appearing tacky or bumpy.

The shade 'Pink Crystal' itself is a beautiful coral pink with an added touch of shimmer, that really helps to brighten up your look. I found it to apply super easily, feeling really nice and light on the lips. It's pigmented and fun to wear and I just think you can't go wrong with a liquid lip!
