I do love a new Bobbi collection and the new Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand Collection is apparently inspired her favourite holiday destination, the beach!

It’s a really pretty collection and it features a palette with gorgeous quirky packaging that’s reminiscent of both raffia and sand.

There are 2 palettes in this collection – the Surf Eye Palette which I have, and also the Sand Palette. The Surf palette contains 8 subtle but extremely pretty shades including pastel pink, blue and aqua. Alongside the current Bobbi Brown Cream Eye Shadow, it actually contains 7 brand new shades:

  • Pink Quartz Metallic
  • Sunshine Metallic
  • Sunny Gold Metallic
  • Bikini Bronze Metallic
  • Surf Sparkle
  • Sea Foam Sparkle
  • Oyster Sparkle

As I said, the shades are very subtle, so if you are looking for super strong pigments, then  it probably isn’t for you. However, it’s a beautiful little collection of colours to give you bright, sparkly eyes. Here is my first try with it.

The Sand palette is a much bronzier take on the look and I’d imagine will be the more popular one. If you are scared of blue and green though, these shades above give just a sparkling hint as you’ll have noticed.

I also used the new Bronze eye pencil in the photo above.

I love the Bobbi Eye Pencils and this bronze shade is absolutely stunning.

Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand Collection – Brightening Blush

I absolutely love the brighteners from Bobbi Brown, and Surf and Sand has 2 options – Bronze and Pink. I have Pink.

You just swirl the colours together and pop on to the apples of your cheeks for a soft wash of colour and super radiant skin.

Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand Collection – Sheer Lipsticks

There are 4 new easy to apply sheer lipsticks that are all about beautifying the lips with a soft hint of colour.

I have super summery shades Summer Nude and Peach Sorbet. Still trying to decide which one I like the most!

They actually make the most beautiful colour mixed together!

There’s also a new Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in the collection in shade 24 Karat. You guessed it! It’s gold!

The Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand Collection is on counter now. Find it at Selfridges.
