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.
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 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?
