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!

Brightening Lip Gloss in Pink Lilac, Pink Opal and Lilac Pearl; Crystal Glitter Lip Gloss
Based on what I’m seeing here, these emphasize shimmer over pigment. I can’t wait to see how that translates into looks.
I hope the colors come across well on my tan skin…
What do you think from these swatches? Are you blinded by the shine?
