30 Jan Review, Swatches, Photos: Bobbi Brown Spring 2012 Rose Gold Makeup Collection
“Rose Gold is instant prettiness.” – Bobbi Brown
You may want to know what inspired this collection: Bobbi’s own rose gold wedding band. How romantic.
This collection offers plums, pinks, roses and corals, colors which are considered by many to be universally flattering. Bobbi also added two new Shimmer Brick Compacts, and an assortment of new lip glosses in the Rose Gold shades.
The new, Limited Edition Shimmer Brick Compacts are available in two shades. I sampled the Wild Rose one which has five different pressed shades of ultra-luxe pure pearl pigments into one pan that are then double-baked so you can get a wide range of color within one sweep. The other compact is called Rose Gold as both are handmade in Italy.
To create a shimmering glow, swirl your brush across all five shades and then lightly dust the cheeks and forehead. Tip from Bobbi herself: When it comes to shimmer, moderation is key. Apply shimmer to just one or two features at a time. These two Limited Edition Shimmer Brick Compacts are $39.00 and will be available at all Bobbi Brown counters and www.bobbibrown.com in February 2012.
New Rich Color Gloss shades are $23.00 and are available in 11 shades with new ones including Pink Sorbet, Angel Pink, Pink Gold and Pink Cocoa (sampled). These offer the full coverage of a lipstick, the soft shine of a gloss and the luxurious feel of a lip balm. You can see the light within these glosses and they are harmonious with the collection’s palette colors.
The New Rich Lip Color SPF 12 shades just launched six new colors such as Lilac, Wild Rose, Miami Coral (sampled), Pink Peony, Nude Rose and Beige Gold. These are lightweight and very emollient. They last for hours and are comfortable to apply. These are $23.00 each and will all be available come February 2012.
If you are following our Spring 2012 cosmetic collection round-up, many palettes have hues of pinks and both Giorgio Armani‘s “Luce The Armani Light” Spring 2012 makeup collection and Bobbi Brown’s have hints of gold. But this collection showcases one of my favorite metal colors…Rose Gold. It’s soft yet luminescent at the same time. I see these shades to be flattering on any skin tone.
