Bobbi Brown Nectar & Nudes: Bare Peach High Shimmer Lip Gloss & Bare Peach Glitter Nail Polish

Bobbi Brown Nectar & Nudes Bare Peach High Shimmer Lip Gloss & Bare Peach Glitter Nail Polish

Apricot nectars, fresh pink corals, and true peaches? Bobbi Brown Nectar & Nudes Collection (launch date: sometime in March) has my name written all over it! To give the hot shades of coral more dimension, there are a couple of sparkling “top coat” type of pieces in the collection, like *Bare Peach High Shimmer Lip Gloss and *Glitter Nail Polish.

Bobbi Brown Bare Peach 32 High Shimmer Lip Gloss

If you have a soft spot for ultra shimmery glosses, chances are you will like Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Glosses. The slightly mint- and vanilla- scented  gloss is slightly cooling for a few minutes, and the non-sticky, non-tacky formula hydrates as long as wearing well.

Bobbi Brown Bare Peach High Shimmer Lip Gloss (32. RRP in Belgium: 24 euros) is a light peach with gold and copper shimmer. The color doesn’t really show up on my lips, but the shimmer for sure does! It feels ever-so-slightly gritty when it is first applied, but after a couple of sips of my herbal infusion, some shimmer wears off and the grittiness disappears (although there is still plenty of it to go around).

Bare Peach lasts on my lips for a good 3 hours, which is phenomenal especially considering it is virtually clear. The sparkle doesn’t move around much, either (although if you eat, I can’t promise you anything). I personally prefer to layer it on a lipstick for some extra glitz. Here you see it over Givenchy Glamorous Orange Rouge Interdit:

Voila, more glossy, sparkling va-va-voom!

Bobbi Brown Bare Peach 6 Glitter Nail Polish

Bobbi Brown Bare Peach Glitter Nail Polish (6. RRP in Belgium: 18 euros) is a shade twin of its namesake gloss. The virtually clear nail polish is littered with gold, copper, and pink glitter.

I personally prefer to use two coats of Bare Peach to maximize the bling factor.

For the manicure, I used two coats of Guerlain Nahema La Laque Couleur (which might be close to Bobbi Brown Nectar Nail Polish released in this collection. However, all I have for the moment is a promo image, and I have no idea how accurate the colors are) and two coats of Bobbi Brown Bare Peach Glitter Nail Polish on every nail except for the ring finger (only one coat of Bare Peach so you can see how much glitter it dispenses with one coat):

Are you in for some shimmer with Bobbi Brown?

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Glitter! That gloss is just straight up glitter! I can’t do that at all at my age haha! The polish is pretty though!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha but it doesn’t really feel that way (which is good)!

  • Whitney

    Ooh the gloss over the lipstick adds the volume! I have yet to find a glitter lip gloss that would look decent on me, but I haven’t found any yet. Some of them in Dior is ok if its very very tiny. I am liking that polish! The gold + red reminds of Harry Potter or Game of Thrones House Lannister!! I hope there’s more peach color makeup coming out this summer, it’s such a flattering color for everyone!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Whitney, oh yeah peach is such an easy color to wear! It’s more like a bright coral (though let’s just admit this: on me it looks orange) with gold, but I see where you’re coming from!

  • Bella

    The lipstick and gloss look stunning on you!! From this collection, I like the gloss and nail polish in Nectar.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Bella, same here! Although I can’t guarantee I don’t already own something similar.

  • Sofia

    The nails are so cute! I’m always bait weary of shimmery lip products, I like shiny but not shimmery, maybe because I tried bad ones in the past and it looked weird (especially after a few hours). I really like it on you though here on top of lipstick

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sofia, I know what you mean, but this one is largely OK! I agree with you though, it’s hard to get shimmer right!

  • Eva

    the lipstick/lipgloss combination you made is STUNNING 😀

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Eva! I was trying to find a color that would be similar to the “nectar” featured in this collection. I think corals such as Guerlain Nahema or Dior Riviera would work really well with this as well!

  • Icaria

    These are pretty on you Sunny! I’m curious about the rest of the collection since I already have similar items that I don’t use much but you gave me the idea to use my glittery top coat over Lilis for fun. :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Helene! I’m definitely going to look into that cream blush. I haven’t tried the Bobbi Brown formula yet, although I know some (like Lily) are big fans!

  • Liss Cope

    Hi Sunny! you look lovely!!! I really like Bobbi Brown high shimmer glosses! Specially the mint scent to them! Agreed with you about the shimmering particles not moving around to much AND that Givenchy lipstick looks amazing on you <3 My (shopping) wish list has grown so much with your blog!! haha!! big hugs xx

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Liss! The gloss does smell pretty good! It reminds me of ice cream somehow!

  • Lily

    Hi Sunny, I think these look really sweet. I think the gloss actually looks really good :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lily, it’s really cool layered over a lipstick! Love the shine and the sparkle!

  • Larie

    I love how pretty and sparkling everything looks, but I thankfully don’t need any more glitters for a while (haha!). But you’re right – this collection was MADE for you!!!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha yeah you are pretty well stocked-up in terms of sparkling glosses!

  • Caise

    I love Bobbi Brown lip glosses! I’ve already used up two and I need to get more of them soon:) this one looks beautiful on you

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Daria! What shade(s) do you think you’ll try next?

  • Sara_BeauTime

    Oh that gloss looks really interesting, especially gorgeous on Givenchy’s orange lipstick that I am eyeing at the moment thanks to you 😉

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      That one is seriously worth a look!

  • Kristen / Glambunctious

    Um, that Givenchy lipstick!! Wow! That is going on my wish list tout de suite! I just saw this Bobbi collection today and I kind of want everything. The eye palette especially b/c if there’s 2 things I love, it’s neutral eyeshadows and the color coral! Speaking of coral lovers, Sunny, I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before (because why would I?!) but that’s my wedding color! The bridesmaids dresses, my bouquet, and some of the decor will all be coral! It should be a Sunny-approved affair! 😉

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Kristen, oh I bet you’ll rock Glamorous Orange!

      And whoaaaa YES TO CORAL! You definitely picked a good one! I hope your bridesmaids love it as much as you do!

  • fancie

    I love your nails! The sparkles are really pretty but I’m really loving the base color!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Fancie, Guerlain Nahema seems more coral on others, but my skin tone pretty much draw all the orange out!

  • peggy timmermans

    Ahhh de lipgloss is really pretty on the lips! I love it!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Peggy! It’s sparkling!

  • Natasja

    I like them both but I’m not much of a lipgloss girl.. so just for the shimmer (and that price) I would not purchase it. The nail polish is pretty but a bit too sheer for me.. it doesn’t cover enough. Again not for the price I’d have to pay for it, haha. I’m just a cheapo when it comes to nail polish, I guess.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Natasja, I know what you mean. They are both products that you might want to layer on top of something else, so it also depends on how much layering you really do!

  • Liz

    The nail polish is surprisingly pretty! I’m only interested in the Hibiscus lip & cheek cream from this collection but apricot and nude is such a pretty combo. Not a big fan of BB’s lip glosses – I wore a shimmery one yesterday and wiped it off before kissing my nephew but he still ended up with a ton of shimmery bits all over his face, LOL.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’ll definitely keep an eye out for Hibiscus, but then again I kinda promised myself not to get more cream blushes for a while.

      All shimmery products are like that! It’s almost impossible to remove the shimmer in one go!

  • birtegovarts

    I’m really digging the nail polish!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      You should check it out when it hits the stores! It shouldn’t take too long now.

  • Replica

    I’m looking forward to this collection, that polish looks like it would be a great topper, their polishes are a very good price as well :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Clare, this baby takes a little longer to dry (also because I prefer to use two coats), but it is pretty indeed!

  • Katia | beautyminded

    Love the entire collection.. Even the glittery gloss! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha nothing wrong with a glittery gloss! The glitter doesn’t travel all over my face or feel gritty here, so I’m just fine!

  • Syirael

    How did you know exactly which of the pieces from this collection I wanted to see the most?! 😀

    These are both so pretty – for the price they are here in Middle Earth, I will have to admire them from afar, but I really wanted to see them in action, so thanks for the review and swatches!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha you’re welcome! Aww I’m so sorry to hear about the price! I keep thinking we have it bad here in Europe (20+% of VAT), but I know it’s worse down under!

      • Syirael

        I don’t really mean to complain (bit pointless, no?) – but it does tend to dwell on your mind down here 😉 On a recent trip to Europe, I was looking forward to doing some Sephora shopping, but then I realised that Europe kind of gets screwed as well 😛 It’s kind of amazing how Chanel is more expensive in Paris than it is in the US…

        • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Haha yeah well, I try to tell myself at least we get pretty sweet health insurance deals… 😉

          • Syirael

            True! I always liked a comment the game critic Yahtzee made on the ridiculous price of video games in Australia (in his case, NZ is just as bad) – he called it part of the ‘Having the nicest beaches tax’! 😀

  • jenn @Abeautifulzen

    i love that you can see the actual sparkle from the gloss. your photos are great here!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Jenn! I really tried LOL

  • Strawbry_Blonde

    That is some serious lasting power for a gloss and your mani is amazing. I like that the glitter is so fine, like you’ve just brushed your fingers through sand rather than full on glitter…

    Nic x

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Nic! Now that is a beautiful way of putting it!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    I love how the gloss gives added dimension to your lipstick, what a beautiful combination Sunny.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Jacqueline! I’m happy the shimmer doesn’t move around!
