Bobbi Brown Neons & Nudes

Bobbi Brown, Neons and Nudes, promoBobbi’s first collection of 2012 is here: Neons & Nudes (and it definitely covers both ends of the spectrum). Though Bobbi gives us a bold option for eye and a nude option for lip, I gravitated toward bright lips and neutral eyes.

The Ultra Nude Eye Palette felt perfectly within Bobbi’s comfort zone.  (And we already know I have an infinite tolerance for neutral eyeshadow palettes.)

The palette is $45 and includes six shadows (plus a double-ended brush). Chino eyeshadow is a matte, soft fawn-taupe, a light sandpiper brown. Praline shimmerwash eyeshadow is a softly shimmery golden caramel brown. Pink Chandelier metallic eyeshadow is a shimmery/sparkly peach-pink-gold. Stone eyeshadow is a matte wood-brown-taupe, the darker, warmer complement to Chino. Champagne Truffle shimmerwash eyeshadow is a shimmery peach-gold, slightly deeper than Pink Chandelier. And Cocoa Berry shimmerwash is a very dark black-brown satin.

If I had one (trivial) complaint of this palette, it would be that many of the shades are quite similar in tone. I guess Pink Chandelier and Champagne Truffle are my lid options; Chino, Praline, and Stone are my crease colors; Cocoa Berry is my liner.

There are also two eyeshadow singles ($21). Bluebell eyeshadow (0F) is a sheer periwinkle/hyacinth (dreamy purple) blue. Ultra Violet shimmerwash eyeshadow (49) is a sheer heliotrope pink-purple with a medium number of tiny purple sparkles.

Though bright lips or bold eyes shouldn’t compete with your blush, you don’t have to go without it. Bobbi has two new shades to tempt you: Nude Peach (28) and Nude Pink (29).

I loooooove Nude Peach. It’s a warm guava-ish rosy peach with tiny silver sparkles for an allover satin finish. Nude Pink is a matte cool pink. The blushes are $24 each.

There are three Lip Color lipsticks in this collection ($23). Atomic Orange (0T) is aptly named. It’s blinding. I tried it on, and I both loved it and was scared of it. It struck me as a very “New York” color choice. It was also a little bit drying, so you may want to pair it with a gloss. Neon Pink (0R) is a bright, cool, electric-flamingo pink. Uber Beige (52) is actually a limited edition repromote, a peachy, rosy warm nude.

Bobbi Brown, Neons and Nudes, cosmetics bagThe three lipglosses ($23) are extremely sheer.

This collection also includes a limited edition felt-tipped eyeliner pen, the Ink Liner ($24). It seems absolutely identical to MAC’s Penultimate liner.

And there’s a Neons & Nudes satin makeup bag (6″ x 4″ x 2.5″). It’s $30.

  • I might be overdosing on nude eyeshadows (I really have LOTS) but I’m never overdosing on orange and fuchsia lipsticks and these are just WOW! :)

    How does the Nude Pink Blush compare to Bobbi’s Pale Pink?

  • blkrox says:

    Hi Karla, I was so excited to see these swatches! Thank you! The two bright lippies will be mine! I do have a question – do you have any info on which items are LE and which are permanent? Many thanks in advance :-)

  • blkrox says:

    Oops! Sorry, I didn’t specify, my question is in regards to the lipsticks and lipglosses.

    I just recently purchased Bobbi Brown eyeshadow Bluebell. I thought the color was gorgeous, that is until I started to put it on. It did not look right on me. I primed the lid and by the time I had finished it looked like I had a black eye. Maybe I need to use only Bobbi Brown
    brushes. Any suggestion on how to apply this color. I was so disappointed it looked so pretty as a single eyeshadow
