Summer is here, and with it, fantasies of beach vacations. And on Bobbi Brown counters right now: Bobbi’s Beach Club.
In the club: a new limited edition Shimmer Brick (Beach, $38), five new long-wear cream eyeshadows ($22), a clear SPF 15 Lip Shine (in the same formula as the tinted shades; $22), and of course, Bobbi’s Beach fragrance ($55) and scented Beach Oil ($28).
Shimmer Bricks can be used swirled together as a highlighting powder, or you can also use the five shades as eyeshadow. Of the Shimmer Bricks I’ve swatched, I think Beach is the most believable as an eye palette.
There are also five new cream eyeshadows: four Metallic (very sparkly), and one cream. These are actually being added to the line as permanent shades.
Moonstone is gorgeous. Â It’s a complex gold-green-grey with a touch of blue. If I had a ballgown this color, I would wear it everywhere. Opal is white with pink, lilac, and orange sparkles (which the camera did not pick up at ALL). Surf is ice blue with silver sparkles; Pink Oyster is pale pink with silver sparkles. When you sheer these shades out, you basically reduce down to sparkles, and I’ve heard some reports of glitter-fallout as a result.
