Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Uber Pink Collection Review

Happy Valentine's Day Everybody! Have you noticed a lot of PINK this year for Valentine's Day? Well, pink's popularity has filtered to makeup. Bobbi Brown recently released an Uber Pink Collection. It's a very pretty collection! Wore my flirt sweatshirt to review it.

She gave beauty fanatics like myself an option to "Be Pretty" (light pink) or "Be Bold" (dark pink). I don't wear light colors well, so I decided to purchase the darker pink cosmetic collection. This is my first time trying Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, so I was excited to give her products a twirl. Let's start with LIPSTICK!

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)

Bobbi Brown Lip Color (Neon Pink) $25 is Supersweet
I LOVE IT! Through the years, I've learned I wear BOLD (dark) colors well. Put a pale color on me, and I look like the kiss of death. HaHaHa I'm sure there are others, that are the exact opposite. Always do what WORKS for you! This lip color is described as a pink fuchsia. As you can see, it's VERY true to color. It's a gorgeous shade of pink, that's fun, pigmented, rich and creamy. It makes me SMILE. It felt good to my lips. The color is buildable. I swiped my lips several times to achieve this color. I'm not going to lie, when ordering I was super worried about the word "neon". HaHaHa However, it doesn't send you to the 80's. The color actually brightens you up. If you're not a lipstick girl, Bobbi offers a lip gloss in 'popsicle'. I don't do too well with lip glosses, so that's why I ordered the lipstick. I love that Bobbi offers options. A girl needs options!

Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Nail Polish (Pink Peony) $15 is Sweet
Her nail polish is very nice! It's a thinner polish than what I'm use to (Butter London & OPI), but application was very easy and not streaky. It layered well. I applied two (2) coats to achieve the opacity below. It dried quickly. So no complaints here. Loved the color. All I need now are some pink peonies. HaHaHa The wear time was 4 days for me.

Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Illuminating Bronzer (Pink Peony) $38 is Supersweet
You can use this pretty pink bronzer all over your face, but I just put it on my cheeks (as a powder blush) to show you a comparison from my skin to cheeks (color). What you see is about three (3) strokes. So just like the nail color, the illuminating bronzer is buildable. It's finely milled, so you don't have to worry about splotches. I really liked it and felt it gave my skin a healthy glow.

My Final Thoughts: So how do I look? I really liked this collection and I'm glad I purchased it. The color will take me into Spring and Summer. I was very impressed with the quality of the products. The packaging is minimalistic, but it's of VERY good quality (that's all that counts). I really don't have any complaints.

I've watched Bobbi Brown's cosmetic collections over the years and I know she's the master of neutrals. It's great to see her come out with more color (she has a NEW Nectar & Nude Collection for anyone interested in corals and she also collaborated with L'Wren Scott for anyone that likes purple). These collections are refreshing. Hope you enjoyed!

Wait!...NO SWEETS?...I wouldn't do that to you!...Chocolate pistachio & rose petal chocolate bar from Sucre ...See, I'm BOLD...I eat flowers! LOL :)

CONGRATULATIONS LINDA! Enjoy! I've already made contact with Linda.
Have A Great Weekend Everybody!

I love Bobbi's line precisely because she is the master of neutrals - but I love a bold lip colour so it's nice to see her debut a few brighter shades. This lipstick looks just gorgeous on you, Kim. Pink is definitely your colour. Happy Valentine's Day!

Awesome review, I like the bright lips but I wouldn't be able to wear the blush, I always end up looking more like a 5 year old playing dress up with pink blush :(

Amber Lucas A Mused Blog said...

I love Bobbi Brown cosmetics. BB was the first "luxury" lipstick I ever bought for myself. I bought it with money from my first real job when I was living in LA when I was 18. Memories!

You look beautiful! The lipstick and the blush look incredible!

They also make an ah-mazing foundation (forget the name, but it comes in a jar).

Coco said...

You are right Kim, bold pink looks awesome on you! I'd pick bold pink for me too :-)

I must say I am a big fan of bold lip colors, and you wear this one very well! It's definitely not too neon, just bright, fun pink!

Another great review Kim!! I love this color on you it's a nice POP of color! I've been experimenting with colors and slowly coming out my comfort zone with neutrals.

The nail polish is really pretty. I'm glad that you mentioned it wasn't streaky. I hate that!!

Great review all around Kim!
