Bobbi Brown Platinum collection

Bobbi Brown has unveiled its new Platinum collection. The look features strong eyes, smoked up in cool shadows, offset by cheeks and lips which glisten with touches of sheer, shimmering platinum. The overall effect is “equal parts fresh, edgy and beautiful”, according to the company.

Key items include a new, limited-edition Platinum Pink Shimmer Brick. This comprises five colour bars – soft pink, platinum, bright pink, golden coral and rose – that blend together to light up the face.

These shades work as highlight colours for cheeks, or can be used anywhere to add shimmer. The special platinum bar is said to be an ideal new shade for eyes.

The custom-made compact sports a metallic silver finish and faux-leather detailing.

New shades of Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Cream Shadow (Steel, Platinum, Ash and Heather), teamed with new shades of Lip Gloss and Shimmer Lip Gloss also feature.

The collection is completed by the limited-edition Shimmering Body Oil. Infused with pink and platinum pearls, this is said to give skin a radiant glow, while moisturising and conditioning with a blend of essential oils.

Its lightweight formula is absorbed quickly into the skin, leaving it soft to the touch. The oil is lightly fragranced with Bobbi’s Party, a new fragrance which will debut in second-half 2009.
