I have decided that starting this year, I will review all makeup collections that I will receive collectively so as to save time, space, and so that I won't miss out on any makeup product that you'd like to know more about. The debuting makeup collection in my new kind of blog post is Bobbi Brown's Scotch On The Rocks collection of 2014.
BOBBI BROWN SCOTCH ON THE ROCKS COLLECTION IN DETAIL
Scotch On The Rocks was the much- awaited Holiday collection of Bobbi for 2014. It consists of makeup gift sets and limited edition colors in packaging that exuded the warmth, glitz, glam and joy of the holidays and was greatly inspired by the golden hue of the namesake drink.
I will be reviewing the following makeup products from this collection: High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Bellini, Scotch On The Rocks Lipstick, and Lip And Eye Palette. More about these products after the break!
BOBBI BROWN SCOTCH ON THE ROCKS COLLECTION IN ACTION
I have already written detailed reviews on the following products so I'll just gladly redirect you to them-this is more of a swatch blog post. :)
LIP AND EYE PALETTE
Ivory- a warm white shade (matte)
Cement- a very pale beige with a hint of Taupe (matte)
Black Chocolate- A dark chocolate shade (matte)
Cement as lid wash; Black Chocolate as crease color; Ivory as highlighter
Cement is my most favorite shade in the bunch because I like the 'naturally smoky' effect it gives my eyelids!

Here are the lip colors.
- A cream pink shade (satin).
Natural Pink is a lovely weekend color!
- A midtone brown with a pink undertone (satin).
Bobbi indeed makes nice Brown lipsticks, Browns that look so natural, so flattering, and give you a nice flush of color even if it's a neutral hue and this shade is no exception-I can see myself wearing this shade everyday!

Now here are the lip glosses. One is an individual product and the other, part of the Lip And Eye Palette.
Bare Sparkle (from the Lip and Eye Palette)
- A clear gloss with orange-gold micro shimmer.
Bare Sparkle gives virtually no color coverage-it's simply a much shinier version of your average clear gloss, but I gotta appreciate the orange micro shimmer as it gives my lips a uniform glimmer.
High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Bellini
- A clear gloss with abundant pink-violet shimmer.
Bellini is just like Bare Sparkle as it's also a clear gloss, but it has more shimmer than the latter that it already gives your lips some form of color coverage. The thing with Bobbi's High Shimmer lip gloss is that it gives the lips a pretty kind of sparkle without all those odd, chunky glitters that stick out or bleed around the lips. It's a must- try for shimmer lip gloss lovers!

We are down to the last product!
- A deep red shade with a hint of wine (satin).
Whoops, apologies for the blurred photo!
Raisin is one of Bobbi's classic lip colors-it has been around since forever! It's in the classic satin lip color formula of Bobbi Brown, which to me is one of the best, non-drying, long- wearing satin lipsticks in town. :) Love that it's got that Marsala feel to it, thus it's a lip color that I think I'll be wearing year- round! :)
In sum, this is a pretty good, honest collection: it's simple and no frills as it offers a ton of very wearable colors that will look good on anyone and no matter the occasion. Colors may not be that adventurous, but personally, if I were to spend a lot on makeup, I want to get something that I can wear everyday and will practically go with whatever I want to wear (do you feel me?).
The must- have items for me are the lipstick because it comes in a gorgeous, limited edition gold tube and the Lip And Eye Palette because it offers three really nice eyeshadow shades and two lip colors that will allow me to create a simple but gorgeous look easily, especially when traveling-wish it came with a blush though instead of a lip gloss!
I believe this collection is still available in all local Bobbi Brown counters so by all means, do check it out!
