For this extremely covetable collection, designer Ulla Johnson and quality brand Bobbi Brown Cosmetics teamed up to collaborate on the most perfect set of makeup items suitable for ALL season’s! Need to see what I’m on about? Say no more. Take a look..
Now you can see what I mean! It is exquisite and features the most complimenting makeup products that I’ve seen in a collection in a while.
Bobbi Brown x Ulla Johnson Collection & Formula’s
From the gorgeous classic red lip colour ‘Loulou’, with orange undertones, the creamy warm pink blush in ‘Pink Flush’ to the natural shadows in the Minou eye palette, there is really something for everyone and that suits most skin tones, too. Let’s start with the stunning star of the show, the crushed lip colour that caught everybody’s eye at first glance; ‘Loulou’ – 3.4g: a warm red with orange undertones, a creamy satin matte finished lip in a classic bullet twist up. The hydrating formula consists of Vitamin E, Vitamin C and beeswax, providing a lightweight balmy feel on the lips yet with crushed pigments to allow a swipe & go application. See the stunning beauty below..
I will of course follow up in another new blog post with both lip & arm swatches so you can see the colour presented in application.
Onto the perfect Minou Eye Palette; featuring five shades curated by the fashion designer Ulla Johnson herself: three buttery matte shadows ‘Antique Rose’, ‘Shell’ & ‘Hot Stone’, a sparkle glimmer shadow ‘Chiffon’ and a metallic shadow ‘Champagne Quartz’. This palette has the right shades to go as natural as you’d like or as glammed up as you like with a smokey eye & sparkle shimmer lid! A very versatile palette that’s compact enough to travel with. Haven’t seen it yet? See the magic below..
As you can see above, it is absolutely divine. I will post finger swatch photos in a new blog post along with the other swatches.
Next up is the Esme Cheek Palette which features the ultra creamy pot rouge blush in ‘Pink Flush’ – a warm toned soft pink with coral undertones, perfect for popping a lovely tint of colour to your lips or cheeks! It also features a cream highlighter in ‘White Opal’ which can illuminate the skin, providing a radiating lit-from-within look. Lastly, the kit comes with a mini Extra Face Oil that achieves a dewy finish over the makeup. See the full set below..
What a gorgeous kit, it is also a perfect size for traveling with and very compact. It also includes the mirror as you can see above.
Onto the extremely lightweight and hydrating Extra Lip Tint – 2.9g in the most natural lip colour complimenting version ’Bare Pink’; this lip tint is so soft, so creamy and is designed to blend in with your own natural lip colour to compliment the tone and is infused with jojoba seed oil, avocado oil and cocoa seed butter. It is the perfect hint of colour and will suit every skin tone. See it below..
As you can see it looks extremely creamy and light. It is! I recommend this lip tint to anybody that suffers dried and cracked lips in the Winter. It is perfect for keeping the skin hydrated but also adds that pop of colour to compliment them!
Last and definitely not least is the other star of the whole show; the Ulla Johnson designed Makeup Pouch – 210 x 140 x 10mm: curated specifically for this limited edition collection! With hues of soft beige and pale blush pink, a white floral design cascades both sides and underneath, creating a highly detailed illustration from Ulla Johnson, inspired by her own urban bohemian taste. Featuring the most gorgeous pale pink tassel to provide itself extra compliment. It’s the most stunning makeup pouch I’ve laid eyes on and better yet, it fits each item from the entire collection perfectly! Take a look below at the incredible detailing..
As you can see, it’s absolutely stunning! I am in love with everything in this collection, Bobbi Brown & Ulla Johnson have nailed it impeccably!

My Thoughts & Findings
Let’s be completely honest here, what couldn’t you LOVE about this stunning and limited edition collection from the collaborative efforts of New York fashion designer Ulla Johnson and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics?!?! There is nothing, because absolutely everything is perfection! From the versatile Minou eye palette to the crispy warm crushed lip colour in ‘Loulou’; there is so many optional looks to create with this collection, each item is the perfect size to slide right into the makeup pouch and travel with, but most of all it’s well suited to most skin tones and will be amazing for each season, particularly Autumn/Winter. I am extremely impressed with this gorgeous collection! Stay tuned for the next blog post on this stunning set with swatches included!
