Fall/winter makeup collections are my favorites, and almost every brand comes out with amazing holiday gift sets this time of the year.   I spotted the Bobbi Brown Holiday 2015 Makeup Collection - Sterling Nights - at my local Nordstrom and got some photos and swatches to share.  Inspired by the star-sprinkled night sky, this collection brings in deep smokey shades, metallic shimmer, and rich colors.  It includes some of the usual Bobbi Brown products like a neutral eyeshadow palette and lipsticks, but there are some lovely new products in this collection like the new Bobbi Brown Sequin eyeshadows and 3 new face highlighters.   Scroll on for more photos and swatches.

Bobbi Brown Sterling Nights Eyes Palette

Inspired by the star-studded skies, this is very much the usual Bobbi Brown eyeshadow palette with some warm neutral colors and a mix of matte and shimmer.  There are some darker shimmer wash eyeshadows that work best by patting over other shades and some lovely warm mattes that would be good transition shades.  The metallic-satin eyeshadows have pretty good pigmentation, and the colors are just as perfect for a soft neutral eye as they are for a rich smokey eye.

Smoke Shimmer Wash - shimmering brown grey; Midnight Sparkle - black grey sparkle with colorful pearl;
 Caviar - rich black brown; Pewter Chrome - metallic green gold

Overall, the Bobbi Brown Sterling Nights eyeshadow palette is one of those reliable, easy-to-wear neutral/smokey eye palettes that Bobbi Brown churns out every other month.  Some of the colors are a bit light to show up well on my skin tone, but the pigmentation is not bad, and if you are on the lookout for a good neutral palette and like the simple, elegant packaging that's typical of Bobbi Brown products, then you might want to give this a try.  It's not a must-have and definitely not unique, but it is a good basic eyeshadow palette.

Bobbi Brown Sequin Eyeshadows

If you found the palette a bit boring, then take a look at these new, limited edition eyeshadows.  Bobbi Brown Sequin Eyeshadows are baked eyeshadows in deep, dark colors with fine gold and silver shimmer veining running through the eyeshadow.  They look beautiful in their sleek silver compacts and feel just as amazing.  The texture is quite soft, and the colors are very pigmented.

I love dark eyeshadows and smokey eye makeup, and these Bobbi Brown Sequins eyeshadows are my favorite products in the entire collection.  I think they would work best packed on with a flat shadow brush, and I would pair these with a warm matte brown blended along the crease.  I have no idea about how well these would fare on the lids - whether they crease and/or if they are long-lasting - but these eyeshadows definitely look promising and quite a welcome change from the usual Bobbi Brown neutrals.

Also included as part of this collection are 4 lipstick shades - Lady Vixen, Atomic Orange, Lady Ruba, and Nude (a new shade, apparently, but there are similar shades in the Bobbi Brown lipstick range).  All 4 colors are perfect for the holidays and the cooler, grey months ahead, and the formula is creamy and feels lip friendly.  There is also a new shade in the gel eyeliner pencil range - Black Ivy (which my brain keeps autocorrecting to Blue Ivy :P).  It's a dark, almost-black green.

The collection also includes new face highlighters that I hope are permanent additions to the Bobbi Brown makeup range.  I love the sleek packaging with convenient pump dispensers, and the texture and consistency of these highlighters is perfect.  The thin formula blends easily into the skin and gives a very natural-looking glow to the skin.  It does seem easy to build up the highlighting effect, but since the sparkle/shimmer is not very prominent, it should be difficult to go overboard with this product, making it perfect for someone just starting out with highlighters.  The 3 shades available - Pink, Seashell, and Bronze - should also cover quite a few skin tones.

Bobbi Brown's Holiday 2015 Makeup Collection - Sterling Nights - is definitely a good start to the fall-winter season.  There are some lovely products, and my favorites are the Bobbi Brown Sequin eyeshadows and face highlighters.  Seashell seems like a good match for my skin tone.  There quite a few neutral eyeshadow palettes out there, and the Bobbi Brown Sterling Nights eye palette doesn't stand out from the crowd, but it is a good basic eyeshadow palette and would make a nice gift.  Overall, one of the better Bobbi Brown makeup collections.
