BOBBI BROWN ESSENTIALS TRAVEL BRUSH SET, $195
“I love things that are both nicely designed and functional, and the Essentials Travel Brush Set covers off both these bases. I'd plan to either give this set to my sister or a friend who travels, but I'll be honest, it would be very tempting to keep it for myself...” — Rosie Herdman, assistant fashion editor

BOBBI BROWN MAJOR CRUSH LIQUID LIP SET, $140
“’You’re never fully dressed without lipstick’ is one of the many mantras I live my life by, so this Christmas I’ll be asking Santa for the Major Crush Liquid Lip Set. The set includes four full-sized products in new and bestselling shades like Ginger Snap and Smoothie Move. A beauty insider told me Bobbi Brown’s Crushed Liquid Lip is one of Yara Shahidi’s cult favourites, so I’m sold.” — Ashleigh Cometti, commercial editor and beauty writer

LUXE ILLUMINATING POWDER, $110
“This Golden Hour powder transports me to long balmy evenings — it offers the kind of summer-time shimmer every lady is after. It would be perfect to gift as a secret Santa for our ladies-only round. It's an obvious win! Although let’s be honest, how could I resist from stealing this gem back (wink, wink). This luxurious powder with a pearlescent finish would make a perfect addition my make-up bag needs.” — Lucy Casley, designer

 

Bobbi Brown Love In The Afternoon Eyeshadow Palette, $98

THE BREAKFAST CLUB EXTRA SKINCARE SET, $240
“I’ll probably keep it because I’ll need it over the party season!” — Amanda Linnell, editor

LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON EYESHADOW PALETTE, $98
“With holiday/party season on the horizon, this rosy-pink palette is ideal for creating a soft glowing look or really glamming it up with swathes of glitter. Unfortunately, I'm no pro at eye makeup (yet) so I'd gift this on to my sister... she’s much more adept with a makeup brush. Here's hoping she shares both the dreamy swatches and her skills on occasion.” — Sarah Downs, writer

LUXE ILLUMINATING POWDER, $110
“I've recently become addicted to dusting my cheeks with something sparkly — I like how it adds a golden glow to my usual lowkey makeup look. I'm eager to try this new formula from Bobbi Brown that's meant to melt into your skin for a natural-looking finish. It's hard to resist shiny things, so I'll have to stash this one away for myself.” – Saru Krishnasamy, digital editor

LUXE GEMS EYESHADOW PALETTE, $140
Who can resist gems and jewels and being party season it is the perfect time to sparkle, so the Bobbi items that most caught my eye had a common theme of helping the wearer shine. I’d want to keep the Luxe Gems Eyeshadow Palette, $140, which is a gorgeous glimmering mixture of very wearable shades emboldened by some stronger hues and for indulgent stocking fillers a Luxe Jewel Lipstick, $64, or a Luxe Eyeshadow Rich Gemstone, $70, would be perfect. There’s three shades in each to choose from so for those who love a deep red lipstick then the metallic Ruby Slipper is the one, or nudge a nude fan from their comfort zone with the glittery Tahitian Pearl. For a pearlescent eye shadow that would work with any look, Opal Moonstone is a winner." — Janetta Mackay, beauty editor
