Bobbi Brown’s sheer summer Nautical Collection recently hit counters, though I’m not sure what makes sheer “Nautical.” The collection includes four new, limited edition, sheer lipglosses (not yet swatched), and six (permanent) shades of a new stick blush called Sheer Color Cheek Tints.
The cheek tints are primarily cool colors (not that warm girls can’t wear cool blush). Sheer Raspberry is a cool blue-rose; Sheer Lilac (the blush used in the Nautical promotional photo) is cool light pink. Sheer Pink is a cool medium pink. Sheer Mauve is a brown with maybe a hint of purple — this does not match my definition of mauve. Sheer Coral (the only warm pink) is a pink with gold sparkles. Sheer Blackberry is brown.
The Sheer Color Cheek Tints are $22 each, and smaller than I expected them to be (based on my experience with other brands’ stick blushes). I asked a sales associate why Bobbi skipped the numbers 2 â€“ 4 for a new product; she theorized that they might have been numbered to correlate with other blushes from the permanent line. You can also get free shipping at any price on Bobbi’s website today with code skin6.
And is it just me or are Bobbi’s promo photos getting more and more photoshopped looking?
