Spring 2013 isn’t short on color. Bold pops of brights are everywhere, including on the lips and eyes. While lovely in a glossy editorial – wearing a matte, opaque fuchsia lip to the office used to be reserved as a comic fodder. Pink eye shadow? The only thing I saw that looked cute with pink eyes was albino dwarf rabbits.
Bobbi Brown reinvents the season’s penchant for floral inspired tones into s0ftly wearable heather greys and subtle hints of soft pink. Lips and cheeks sustain Spring’s bright pink – but in cellophane sheer textures. The Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick is the star-product of the collection and a must-have for Bobbi fans. The five crisp pink, soft rose and opal hues blend into a flattering halo of freshness that will brighten the cheeks and can even be worn on the eyes as a pop of color. Roza Nail Polish is a semi-sheer heathered nude that somehow doesn’t appear too gray, even on my yellow undertoned skin – very sophisticated and the subtlety is welcome amidst all the crazy nail trends.
RECOMMENDATIONS: The Eye Palette and Shimmer Brick are best suited for lighter skin tones. The cool shadow shades would look ashy on tan-olive skin tones and the Shimmer Brick would appear too frosty. I would opt for the Bobbi’s Browns Eye Collection ($75) which features stone hues with deeper tones and Shimmer Blush in Washed Rose.
