The stars of this release are two limited edition Shimmer Bricks (five-shade compacts which can be worn as eyeshadow, or blended together as highlighter). They are $39 each.
Swatched individually, the shades of Rose Gold are a shimmery peony pink, a beige shimmer with super-strong, pale, iridescent pink duochrome (you can see the beige in the photo, but the swatch looked almost totally pink in person), a shimmery rose-pink/rose-gold pink, a frosty rose-bronze, and a red-rose-copper frost.
Blended together, Rose Gold makes a very shimmery cheek color/highlighter. It builds to a surprisingly peachy/beigey sparkly pink. Here’s the light swatch of the blended shade:

Wild Rose Shimmerbrick is more pink. The individual shades are shimmery lilac-mauve (with silver shimmer), warm (peachy) shimmery pink, a sparkly rose-violet pink, a shimmery violet-pink, and a shimmery cotton-candy-pink. They combine to create a surprisingly warm pink. Here’s the light swatch of the blended color:

This collection also brings Rich Lip Color SPF 12 back into the spotlight. This “soft matte” lipstick formula debuted in spring 2011 and I’ve been loving it ever since. Of the six shades shown here, all are new except Lilac (which made a limited appearance a year ago), and all are permanent except Miami Coral (you know how Bobbi feels about corals). They are $23 each.
29 Beige Gold is a sheer beige pink. 30 Miami Coral is a light peach-pink. 28 Pink Peony is rose-pink. 27 Nude Rose is brown-pink. 26 Wild Rose is a cool violet-pink. 17 Lilac is a mauve pink.
The lipglosses are all the Rich Color Gloss formula ($23). Rose Gold is a repromote; the rest are new and permanent.
16 Pink Gold is a chewing-gum pink with gold shimmer. 9 Pink Sorbet is a slightly mauvey, blue pink with deep/subtle silver shimmer/sparkles. 10 Angel Pink is brighter and warmer, without shimmer or sparkle. 11 Rose Gold is a shimmery golden caramel. 12 Pink Cocoa is a brown/rose-purple duochrome with a subtle shimmer.
This collection repromotes Rose Gold shimmer wash eyeshadow and Caviar gel eyeliner (example 2), and though I’ve swatched them before, I thought I might as well swatch them again.
Rose Gold is a metallic rose shimmer. I may have previously described Caviar Ink liner as a very dark brown-black, but I think it’s almost more accurate to call it a “soft black.” It goes on dark, so if you don’t usually wear black eyeliner, this one may take you by surprise.
Bobbi eyeshadows are $24, her gel eyeliners are $22.
Bobbi’s Rose Gold collection is available everywhere, but BobbiBrown.com has a pretty nice GWP with $100 purchase: a little eyeshadow palette containing Navajo, Slate, Heather Mauve shimmerwash, Steel, and Caviar, plus a deluxe bottle of Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover (valid Feb. 28 – Mar. 2) with code BBTOGO1.
