There was really only one Holiday 2014 makeup collection that stood out to me this past Christmas. Bobbi Brown’s Scotch On The Rocks Collection took my breath away; every piece in the collection is a thing of beauty and it all just seems perfectly put together. The stunning combination of warm amber browns, faux croc leather, tortoise shell casing, and gold accents totally distracted from the fact that the collection featured the less-than-sophisticated model, Kate Upton — but who am I kidding, even she looked the very definition of class in the promo pics!
To me, Scotch On The Rocks was all sorts of awesome and the only thing standing between me and a massive hoarding spree of every single item was the price tag stuck to each and every piece. Luckily enough, I have a crazy-generous family (Titas and cousins) who take wish lists seriously. That meant that I got to open this on Christmas Eve:
Holy. Mother. Of. Bobbi Brown. You can imagine how I squealed with delight! Even the box packaging is gorgeous with those red stripes running across the corners plus the gold embossed Bobbi Brown logo.
I present to you the Warm Glow Eye Palette and the High Light Powder in Bronze Glow. These are the two items I wanted the most from the collection, so I was ecstatic to see both in the box. So grateful for generous family members. I later also received one of the four lipsticks from the collection, Malt Shimmer, which you’ll see that later in the post because my cousin very sweetly sent it over to me after Christmas.
