If you love your make up so much you could just eat it - this will bring you joy. Especially if you are a Bobbi Brown fan.

Balthazar, Covent Garden's decadent American hotspot have teamed up with the beauty brand for an afternoon tea perfect for those that love their slap!

The new “Party Edition” afternoon tea pays homage to the 25th anniversary of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. The tea is a celebration of vibrant autumnal colours, with Régis Beauregard’s cakes, macaroons, financiers, shortbread and mousses all begging to mess up your lipstick.

Most striking amongst the collection of cakes is a pair of luscious “Hollywood Red Gloss” lips, which is in fact a vanilla yogurt mousse filled with rosewater jelly on a base of sponge; next up is the uncannily lifelike Blueberry & Lemon “Smokey Eye Mascara”, which, although looks like an oversized Bobbi Brown mascara from the most discerning of retailers, is in fact a chocolate covered almond financier with blueberry consommé and whipped lemon posset. The other cakes are truly eyecatching as well ~ the Champagne-infused Rhubarb “Shimmer Brick”, the Pecan & Jasmin “Long-Wear Cream Shadow” and the Coco-Citrus ‘EXTRA Balm Rinse’ Cheesecake. In addition – if there’s any room left – delicious sandwiches and buttermilk scones with Devonshire clotted cream, homemade strawberry jam ensure a chock-a-block tea table.


And, for those with a little more time on their hands, Balthazar’s Bar Manager, Brian Silva has created “Bobbi’s Sparkle”, a bubbling mix of Sipsmith gin, elderflower, lemon and Champagne. Of course, for the purists, there is Gyéjacquot Brut NV, creating the real party with Bobbi’s Season 2 tea.

Bobbi Brown said “as I embark upon my brand’s 25 year anniversary celebrations, I can’t think of anything more appropriate than to update the Balthazar tea with my party essentials.”

The products which inspired the afternoon tea cakes are also available to purchase in a Limited Edition Party Pouch. Customers can choose 3 or more of their favourite products from the Afternoon Tea, and receive them in a complimentary Party Pouch. All 5 products are available for £140.  And, Balthazar customers who book the afternoon tea will also receive an invitation for a personalised “How To” make-up lesson* at all Bobbi Brown London Studios, to perfect their party look or update their Autumn/Winter make-up.

The Bobbi Brown Afternoon Tea – The Party Edition at Balthazar will run every day and is £27.50 for the Bobbi Brown Afternoon Tea, and £37.50 for the Bobbi Brown Afternoon Tea with a Bobbi’s Sparkle or a glass of Gyéjacquot Brut NV Champagne.  See Notes to Editors for more details.
