Bobbi Brown Rose Gold Collection

If you’re like me and aren’t quite daring enough for the electric neons or bright pastels this season’s spring trends have on offer then this latest collection from Bobbi Brown are sure to become a staple in your make up bag!

The Rose Gold Collection consists of two shimmer brick compacts, four lipglosses and six lipsticks, some of which have been used to create the fresh, classic, glowing look on the model above. The collection was inspired by Bobbi’s personal rose gold wedding band, offering a romantic and simple look that will hit UK make up counters on the 20th of April.

The shimmer compacts are limited edition and come in either ‘Rose Gold’, a soft pink shade with a glowing golden shimmer or ‘Wild Rose’, a pinker toned compact. They can be worn as blushes or each strip can be used as an eyeshadow. Both are warm, soft, feminine and gorgeous!

Next up – the lipglosses! These four shades are to become permanent features of the Bobbi Brown range and are all ‘Rich Colour Glosses’ which, unlike the original glosses, are non-sticky and have much stronger pigmentation. They come in the shades ‘Pink Sorbet’, ‘Angel Pink,’ Pink Gold’ and ‘Pink Cocoa’. At first I was drawn to the shade ‘Pink Gold’ but the large amount of gold shimmer makes it actually a rather unflattering choice. From the look of some sneak peek swatches, I think my personal favourite is  ‘Pink Cocoa’ – I wasn’t initially attracted to it but it looks gorgeous when applied. It’s less girly and pink than the others, definitely more of a sophisticated nude brown colour but with a subtle hint of pink shimmer; a real every day nude with an eye-catching twist.

Last but not least are the ‘Rich Lip Colour’ lipsticks. These contain SPF 12, come in six shades and like the glosses are to become permanent features. The shades are ‘Miami Coral’, ‘Nude Rose’, ‘Wild Rose’, ‘Beige Gold’, ‘Pink Peony’ and ‘Lilac’ and range from bright raspberry shades to darker rose brown tones all with a very subtle gold shimmer. I have yet to see these in the flesh but from the looks of the promo pictures, I can’t wait to try out ‘Beige Gold’ and ‘Lilac’!

The whole collection looks gorgeous and will work with all skin tones, giving a romantic feminine look that can be worn both day and night. I can’t wait for it to arrive in the UK and with its universal appeal it’s bound to be a sure-fire hit –  to end with a quote from Bobbi herself, “Rose Gold is an instant prettiness” – so very true!
