Bobbi Brown Brightening Nudes Collection

One of these days, some intrepid explorer is going to emerge from a remote rainforest somewhere with 1) directions to the Fountain of Youth (“It’s before the pyramid but past the big banyan tree…”) and 2) an as-yet undiscovered flower, that when eaten, really does give you that lit-from-within glow.


Until then, we’ll have to make due with makeup like the Bobbi Brown Brightening Nudes collection.

Available now at Bobbi Brown counters and also online, this limited edition nine-piece release for eyes, lips and cheeks is designed to bestow a lit-from-within glow to cheeks, while making eyes sparkle and lips look luscious.

Here’s a quick look at the collection along with swatches. Reviews coming soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Based on what I’m seeing here, these emphasize shimmer over pigment. I can’t wait to see how that translates into looks. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope the colors come across well on my tan skin…

What do you think from these swatches? Are you blinded by the shine?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

  1. Jennifer says:

    The crystal glitter lipgloss looks spectacular! I wonder how it wears on the lips…

  2. Melody says:

    hMMM. I’m not digging the shadows. They look rather similar when swatched. I like the glosses though. I guess this time of year makes me want to wear sheer sparkly colors ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Adrienne says:

    Is anyone else sick of hearing the words “nude” and “naked” in practically every cosmetics release lately??

    The shadows looks pretty, though not exactly unique, at least they live up to their title of being brightening nudes! The finishing powder looks… Purple-ey?

  4. Jessica says:

    I drool at any cosmetic product with “Bobbi Brown” in the name, but honestly those three lip glosses look pretty much identical when switched (and i’m sure the same story on the lips). Pretty, but thank goodness I won’t need more than one! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Stacie says:

    Very shimmery…would like to see how it is on the eyes!

  6. The crystal glitter lipgloss looks good. hope it would actually look glittery on lips.

  7. Anitacska says:

    Hmm, that powder seems awfully small. It says 6.6g, which makes it almost half of shimmer bricks which are 10.3g. Not sure I want to spend ร‚ยฃ40 on it, having just dropped ร‚ยฃ48 on the Chanel Lucky Stars powder, but at least that’s 15g.

    I like the look of Lilac Pearl, but probably don’t need it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Hmm these are a bit too sheer and frosty for me… Probably a pass!

  9. Sabah says:

  11. Amy D. says:

    I love all of this! I’d love to see these on you. I’m curious about the brightening finishing powder. The reviews I’ve read have been good- but is it worth $50? What do you think?

  12. Nina says:

    so luminous its almost ethereal!

  13. gabi says:

    Very angelic. This collection is right up my alley. Loving Crystal Glitter gloss.
