MUST HAVE: Brightening Brick in Pink

QUICK REVIEW: Gorgeous. I love the pairing of warm nudes, stone taupe and navy. The collection takes the standard Summer “blues” and elevates it to a classical look that will play sophisticated year round. The palette is well rounded, the Brightening Brick is fresh and pretty – and there isn’t a spoiler in the bunch.

BOBBI BROWN NAVY AND NUDE COLLECTION REVIEW

BOBBI BROWN NAVY AND NUDE QUOTENever mind that Katie Holmes looks gorgeous in the featured image (she does). The Navy and Nude Collection by Bobbi Brown (Summer 2013) is so incredibly versatile and flattering that anyone can conjure up the remarkably classy look. By combining classic nudes in various tones and textures (matte, sparkle and metallic) with a striking deep matte navy liner (use wet or dry) – the contrasting combination makes the eyes seem brighter and the complexion more alive.

BOBBI BROWN NAVY AND NUDES EYE PALETTE REVIEW & SWATCHESThe “star” products in the collection are the Navy & Nude Eye Palette and the Brightening Brick in Pink. The palette doesn’t stray too far from Bobbi’s tendency toward ash-browns (Cement and Slate are staples) – but a few warmer tones (Naked and Twilight Pink) add a fresh touch . Rich Navy is a winner (taking the place of discontinued Navy – one of the original Bobbi shadows) a truly deep, matte navy that manages to be sexy and subdued at the same time.

The Brightening Palette in Pink is more subtle than the Shimmer Brick – more of a glow than shine. The warm, pink shades blend together to give skin a believable blush and highlights cheekbones. Use this over bronzer to perk things up and add a subtle pop of color

Honey Lip Gloss makes a special appearance. This perfectly tawny, creamy gloss and White (which is now a Brightening Lip Gloss shade) were the 2 original lip gloss shades available when Bobbi started back in the 90’s (it was followed with Petal). Its the perfect shade to slightly tone down a bright lip or sheer out a dark color.

BOBBI BROWN HONEY LIP GLOSS

Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Steel Ink is a deep grey with subtle shimmer. This pairs wonderfully with the Rich Navy shadow in the palette. Line eyes with Steel Ink and smudge with Rich Navy – the effect is eye opening and glamorous without looking over done. The subtle shimmer of Steel Ink manages to glimmer through.

  1. Do you have BB graphite shimmer ink? How does steel ink and graphite shimmer ink compare in terms of color?
