Bobbi Brown City Collection

It's one thing when your kids make you feel old, it's quite another when you realise that Bobbi Brown is 25 this year. The brand, not the woman. Obvs. The City Collection Palettes, released to celebrate the anniversary, are quite possibly my favourite release of hers in all that time. Each palette is adorned with illustrations of the city in question by fashion designer-turned-illustrator Richard Haines. And they are lovely.

There are usually a couple of standouts when collections like this are released. In this case all three palettes are great, with a mix of really wearable colours. 


Paris is two mattes, two shimmers and French Pink blush.


New York is possibly the most 'daytime', with three mattes and one light, golden shimmer shadow. The blush is Tawny.


Not being biased, but London, with the inclusion of the Rich Navy eye shadow and Nectar Blush just steals it for Best in Show.

There are three Limited Edition Long-Wear Gel Eyeliners and three new Luxe Lip Colors, Parisien Red being the winner.

The City Collection is exclusive to Harrods and available here. The must-have palettes are £45.00, Gel Eyeliners £19.00 and Lips £25.00.


  1. These look lovely. Caroline, I've just purchased several products from Deciem's new line "the Ordinary" and am very impressed. Any chance of a review? Or anyone else tried them? X

  2. Woah these are 110$ here in Australia i.e. 63 quid. And we supposedly only pay 10% tax. I was really looking forward to these but I don't want to shell out that much *sigh*

  3. Hi like @With Love and Squalor have also purchased The Ordinary products and would love to hear your thoughts on them x

    1. I am so far super impressed! What do you think?

  4. They look beautiful Caroline. I am a 51 year old male and bought one, London palette. Beautiful shades.
    Won't use it, but was taken with the visuals. London and Paris did it for me but, that navy in London is delicious.
    I am had I know.

    1. Me too! I can't bring myself to use them!

  5. I love the look of New York seems like my sort of colours! x

  6. I am so excited about these...can't wait to get my mitts on one (or two)!!

  7. Can't wait for your the review on The Ordinary. Before I order for delivery across the pond the Texas, I must see what Lady Hirons' thoughts are!
