Neons are trending at the moment but if I’m honest I can’t really wear ’em. I think neon shades rock on dark skin but I look awfully garish if I try say a bright orange lipstick. As much as I want to wear neon orange it just doesn’t look right. But I’m all about convincing myself it looks awesome.
Every do that?
Tell yourself that something looks brilliant but in reality you know how bad it really looks.
I am digging on Bobbi’s “safe way” to wear neons. Her Neons and Nudes Collection features delicate shades of color for eyes and cheeks and combines it with a pop of vibrant lipstick. Perhaps this will make it easier to embrace the trend this season.
Let’s take a look at her new Ultra Nude Palette that you can pair up with a bright shade of daring lipstick!
Off topic story of the day…
My mum is in her mid 60’s and volunteers weekly at a church flea market thingy. Most of the ladies she volunteers with are in their 70-80’s but my mum still has a way with making friends with anyone and everyone no matter the age gap.
To make a long story short one lady she befriended is an 87 years old woman who recently had issues with her TV. So my mum of course volunteered to give her a TV she had hanging out in the basement. That’s my mum, she’ll give you the shirt off her back in a winter storm.
Problem? My mum doesn’t drive so she of course enlists me or my sister to do all her heavy lifting. I didn’t have time to drop the TV off needless to say. One night I had my mum in the car with me after I had taken her to Trader Joe and we passed her friend’s house. I turned to my mother and said “oh crap I forgot we had to drop that TV off to your friend!” she replied it wasn’t a problem at all but I still felt bad and told her, “Gosh what does she do without a TV? No news? What if the zombie plague hits?”
My mom, dead pan, turns to me and says, “What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her!”
I dunno but it cracked me up so hard. A dear little old lady, no TV, no way to watch the news, a possible outbreak of the plague, zombies wandering around her neighborhood and she doesn’t know it’s happening!
I seriously need to get that TV to her.
I’d feel bad if zombies ate her brains because of my negligence.
Anyway….utterly off topic but I hope it made you laugh as much as I did when my mom so seriously turned to me and said that!
Zombies, old ladies, and crazy as hell mothers aside how about a little look at some of the new shades of blush released with the Bobbi Brown Neons and Nudes Spring 2012 Collection.
Here’s a little sneaky peek at the Bobbi Brown Ultra Nude Palette that released with Bobbi’s new Neons and Nudes Spring 2012 Collection.

Remember when Chanel released Gloss Fluo De Chanel Brilliant Lip Shines? I freaking loved those things. They just popped.
