Bobbi Brown Bronzed Pink Collection Review

As per my original sneak peek post at Bobbi Brown’s Bronzed Pink Collection today I am bringing you my complete review of the items I snagged from the collection.

Picture+001

The collection consists of a variety of beautiful bronze powders, shadows, and lip colors. I think this collection would be appealing to those of you that enjoy a sun kissed look for the Summer. I’m not particularly a big fan of bronzers myself but I’ve been experimenting a bit which is shocking! I’m brave enough to go out of the house wearing bright pink eyeshadow but when it comes to natural, neutral shades or in this case bronzers I find that I’m not so courageous.

I was lucky enough to get a chance to test out the metallic eyeshadows and tinted lip balm. I’ve been yearning to try out the tinted lip balm for a while now!

The tinted lip balms are a moisture rich lip treatment with a tiny touch of metallic shimmer. Three new colors were released with the Bronzed Pink Collection and I tested out two in the shades Golden Pink and Bronzed Pink.

Golden Pink is a rosy pink color with touches of gold while Bronzed Pink is a chocolate metallic shade. Both shades will look smashing with your Summer tan. I enjoyed the formula of these as they slick on wonderfully and leave beautiful, glossy color on the lips without being heavy, sticky, or tacky.

Although the swatches are bit sheer I am happy to report on my lips they were quite pigmented. If you desire a lighter look simply swipe the balm across your lips once. If you prefer a darker look just layer the color on for a heavier pop of color!

I got so happy and hyper about the Metallic eye shadows that I completely forgot to look closely at them to see if I could pop them out and use them in the Bobbi Brown Custom Palettes. Well duh!

Anyway.

I got two shade selections to review for you. Bronzed Pink which is a dusty nude rose and Penny which is a light chocolate copper shade.

Both shades have a satiny metallic finish. Don’t confuse the look of metallic with shimmer as these have no heavy shimmer or glitter. They blend beautifully and pigmentation is excellent. You can go really heavy with these if you please or do a light color wash. I haven’t tried them wet and it doesn’t mention wetting them but I’m curious how they’d look if I attempted that!

Again my swatches came out very sheer but when you see my FOTD you’ll notice how pigmented these are considering what a heavy hand I used during application.

I decided to contrast the shades when I did my looks. I paired up Penny eye shadow with Golden Pink lip tint and Bronzed Pink eye shadow with Bronzed Pink lip tint. Instead of pairing up the bronze colors together and the pink colors together I mixed it up a bit. I also tried my hand at creating a bronzy look on my cheeks instead of my normal “blushing” pink cheeks I’m known for.

Below I am wearing Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow in Penny on my eyes and Bobbi Brown Tinted Lip Balm in Bronzed Pink on my lips.

Lavshuca Summer Collection 2008: Summer Gradually Compacts

I know how patiently you’re waiting for me to review the Lavshuca Summer Collection! I’ve been SO swamped with everything else that I haven’t broken into the palettes yet! Gasp! Sigh! Rant!

Am I nuts?

Possibly.

But to make up for the fact that I haven’t written the review or done any looks with the palettes yet I thought I’d tease you with yummie images of both palettes!

Here you go:

Summer Collection 2008: Bobbi Brown Bronzed Pink Collection

Guess what I got my hands on?

Some of Bobbi Brown’s brand new Summer Collection entitled Bronzed Pink! Excited? I know I am.

SUMBP l

My love affair with Bobbi Brown continues from the Spring into the Summer with this hot new collection!

I know, I know I’ve said I hate bronzers but I couldn’t help but get curious about Bobbi’s Bronzed Pink Collection. Seriously, just think about it, bronze and pink…a contradiction most gorgeous don’t you agree?

Anytime I’ve ventured into the scary world of bronzers I’ve always had the yearning to spice up my bronzing experience with a dash of pink and lucky for me Bobbi thought the same exact thing when she created this collection!

I admit I wasn’t brave enough to venture into actually purchasing the scary bronzing powders I seen with the collection but I did get the best of the lot of items introduced with two of the Metallic Eyeshadows and two of the Tinted Lip Balms and I’ll be testing them out for you shortly!

E4NE lE4A7 l

I’m thinking these shadows and the lip balms are going to rock out really well with the new love of my life, Urban Decay Baked Bronzer.

The promo images are simply divine and the model is glowing with health and such a natural look that I’m dying to dupe!

Sneak Peek of the review to come……………Yummie Bobbi goodies!

Nordstrom Exclusive: Philosophy Green Apple

Ahhhh who doesn’t love Nordie Exclusives! You know the type that come stamped with that big, bold “Nordstrom” Exclusive across it on the Nordie’s site.

I get all hyper and teary eyed every time I see the words “exclusive”. Hyper because I’m a diseased makeup junkie and teary eyed because I know how untrue the words “exclusive” really are (think Pink Lemonade from last Summer!).

Exclusive translates into “we have it now” but “they’ll have it later” (example: Sephora, QVC, Etc…).

Anyway now that I had my rant on the magic word “exclusive” might I bring to your attention the Philosophy Green Apple Collection!

Nordstrom has a few interesting items available for your purchasing pleasure from Philosophy!

I was getting all 50 Cent on myself after reading about this new collection! Hey, I can’t make this stuff up it says right in the description and I quote, “Take a trip to the Candy Shop…”…I can’t help it if 50 Cent popped into my head!

Oh wait after watching this I realized he was definately not talking about candy….oops…..

Back to Philosophy….

Behold, Yummie goodies to please:

Philosophy Green Apple Gift Set $18 USD (Available separately as well! Gloss $10 USD and Three in One Body Wash $16 USD).
 5614617

Philosophy Green Apple Body Scrub $25 USD
 5623016

I was a tiny bit skeptical about this release and worried that maybe this would just smell like the original Red Apple Three in One but I’m happy to report it promises to have a sweet and sour scent. I’m thinking Jolly Rancher Sour Apple candy…whatcha think?

1273097866 80f2647fe3

I think I needs it if it smells that good! I can’t promise if it smells that great that I won’t be chugging it from the bottle (I’ve been known to do stupid things on occasion)!

Yup….I feel a trip to Nordstrom coming on! Who’s coming with?

Wanna indulge in Philosophy Green Apple?

Loving it?

Not so sure?
