My Current Obsession: Bobbi Brown Dual Ended Eye Liners

Once again I must apologise for my absence this week. I've been absolutely rushed off my feet in the run up to my trip to Florence and intended to get the blog posts I have planned for this week written on the plane... but I came down with a yucky stomach bug so that trashed those plans!

But it's better late than never, so today I want to share with you an amazing discovery I made over the weekend in the form of the limited edition Bobbi Brown Dual Ended Eye Liners from the Christmas 'Party Collection' At first glance these liners look like nothing groundbreaking... but when swatched, it's clear to see they are simply fabulous!

The pigmentation is fantastic and the colours are beautiful. They are a super smooth gel formula. Once they're on... they don't budge (I had these swatches on my hand all day and they didn't even fade after a lot of rubbing and smudging!)

They are available in three pairings: Jet & Chrome, Chocolate & Bronze and Caviar & Gold. All of the shades are beautiful but I must say the Gold liner lets the collection down a little, with poorer pigmentation, it was the only one that faded throughout the day. The Chrome shade is the real gem of the collection, a perfectly opaque and creamy metallic silver that is easy to work with and adds an instant 'wow' factor to any eye look.
I was lucky enough to get my mitts on both the Jet & Chrome and Chocolate & Bronze duos, but when I paid a visit to my local Bobbi counter this weekend to swatch the shades all together, they had all sold out of all three - so move fast if you want them!

I'm totally obsessed with mine and going to be wearing them all through the party season!

They are £17 each and available at Bobbi Brown counters now...
