Do you know the way to [SAN JOSE] Telluride?
Getting there is actually quite easy from what I understand. No matter where you are, you can literally get there in minutes.
No, really! Would I ever pull your leg?
Nawww, of course I wouldn’t, because there’s never any joking here. Not on MBB. Not ever. Everything on MBB is completely serious all of time. 🙂
No, really though. You will not have to endure a five-hour plane ride seated next to an extra chatty dude who won’t stop talking about Colorado mining rights. All you’ll have to do is roll on over to your favorite Bobbi Brown counter when the new Telluride collection arrives this July.
Honestly, I gotta hand it to Bobbi, because if there’s one thing she is, it’s consistent. Every time she releases a new collection, I know straight off that I’m going to find makeup that’s flattering and super wearable. For clean and simple everyday glam, I can always count on Bobbi.
Her new Telluride makeup collection for late summer/early fall arrives on counters this July (but for the impatient ones among us, the palette and shimmer brick are already online!). It’s a crossover seasonal collection to help you transition your makeup from summer’s hot pink glossy lips to fall’s sooty smokey eyes.
The release is inspired by Telluride, Colorado, which is one of Bobbi’s favorite destinations, and where she often finds inspiration. The tawny nude, rose gold and pinkish bronze shades are designed to deliver a summery glow like the late afternoon Telluride sun.
Sounds like good stuff, right? GIMME DAT TELLURIDE GLOW.
The eight-piece collection includes the Telluride Eye Palette ($52); three Pot Rouges for Lips & Cheeks in New Telluride, New Maui and Fresh Melon ($29 each); a Shimmer Brick in Sunset Pink ($46); and three Sheer Lip Colors in New Sunset Pink, New Natural Pink and Bobbi ($27).
The Eye Palette and Shimmer Brick will both be limited edition, so if either of those catches your eye, get them in your cart first.
If I were chilling in the real Telluride right meow, ideally poised on the balcony of an alpine resort as the late afternoon sun lights up the sky and caresses my cheeks, I’d want to be wearing this collection with a warm, rosy brown smokey eye, dewy pinkish coral cheeks with rosy bronze highlights out to HERE, and a sheer, juicy pink lip.
But since I’m not in Telluride right now…I will instead wear this makeup while I clean my employer’s litter box.
HAHA! Actually, I wore this collection last weekend when I visited my family for Father’s Day, and I didn’t get any weird second glances from my mom, which happens sometimes, like when I show up wearing green lipstick just to scare her.
So Mom approves of Bobbi.
A few more thoughts on the pieces I’ve tried…
- The Telluride Eye Palette — This has a good mix of mattes and glitters, and I like the rose, mauve, brown, and bronzed beige. The palette is like a grown-up version of the rosy gold Urban Decay Naked3 palette.
The shadows blend easily and seem to last a long time (I get about eight hours). Methinks this should be a great summer-to-fall transition palette. That said, if you’ve been collecting Bobbi products for a while, you may already have some similar shades.
- Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks in New Telluride and New Maui — These cream blushes have a natural-looking dewy finish and about a 5-hour wear time. The formula is very forgiving, too, as far as my pores.
If you choose to also use these on your lips, I suggest topping them with a gloss, because they can look and feel a little dry if your lips happen to be flaky like mine.
- Shimmer Brick in Sunset Pink — This gorgeous rosy bronze will make you sigh with delight, buuut handle it with extreme caution. I had mine in a regular ol’ makeup bag, and the individual strips popped out, waaaah! It was the first time I’d seen that happen with a Bobbi product, so be extra delicate with the pan.
- Sheer Lip Colors in Sunset Pink and Bobbi — These are lightweight and surprisingly pigmented for something so sheer! I really like these a lot. They last three or four hours, but you’ll probably have to reapply after stuffing yourself silly with sushi (yes, I’m hungry right now).
If you like your makeup elegant and easy to wear, check out Telluride. It’s classic Bobbi. Look for it on counters next month.
