18 Mar Makeup Review, Swatches: Bobbi Brown Spring 2013 Lilac & Rose Collection – Eye Palette, Lip Gloss, Nail Polish, Blush, Shimmer Brick
Soft, romantic… SPRING! Three words that came to mind when I laid eyes on Bobbi’s newest capsule collection. Heathery neutrals, soft lilacs and muted pinks. A collection that will flatter every eye, cheek and lip!
My favorite product in the collection is the Lilac & Rose Eye Palette ($60.00) Eight shades consist of mattes, shimmers and liners. You have an all-over base shade, seven lid and crease colors and a fantastic liner. (Black Chocolate, my personal favorite) You can’t make a mistake with these colors. They are so soft and muted. No harsh edges. The look here is easy, romantic beauty.
For cheeks, there are two products: Lilac & Rose Shimmer Brick Compact ($40.00) and Pastel Pink Blush (25.00). I also want to note these products are limited-edition. The Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick Compact is Bobbi’s award-winning formula, which brightens the skin with icy, golden, bright pigments.
If you aren’t already familiar with this product, you can use as a highlight on the cheeks and also on the eyes. You can use them all together, or, you can use each strip by itself.
I find this particular Shimmer Brick Compact is best used on fair to medium skintones. If you are darker, I would recommend the Bronze Shimmer Brick. The Pastel Pink Blush is also a fantastic formula that gives a beautiful pop of color on the cheeks.
For lips in this collection Bobbi is offering sheer Lip Glosses ($24.00) to give the lips a glaze of spring. Pictured are Lilac Rose and Pink Lily; these are also limited-edition. The texture of these glosses are not sticky — they give just the right amount of pigment to finish your look.
Last but not least is the Roza Nail Polish ($18.00). At first, I didn’t think too much of this shade until I put it on. The picture of my hand, ladies, does not do this polish justice. For fair skin, like myself, this is the PERFECT nude. It’s a heathery nude that looks almost gray in the bottle. On the skin, however, my nails looked longer and tailored. I highly recommend this polish. Get it before it sells out!
So, there you have it ladies, Bobbi’s Spring 2013 Collection. My two favorite products I HIGHLY recommend you get is the Lilac Rose Eye Palette and the Roza Nail Polish!
