Bobbi Brown Autumn/Winter 2012 Desert Spring Collection

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 28 - 2012

Laugh?  I nearly cried when I got a press release instructing me on how I could transition my Summer look into something more suitable for Autumn/Winter.  I mean, really?  WE HAVEN’T EVEN HAD SUMMER.  Not that this is the fault of Bobbi Brown, to be fair.  I’m sure that she (of sueded nudes and creamy ivories) has absolutely no influence on our climatic shitness.  I nearly wrote ‘climactic’ then… sorry, freudian slip.

Here, let’s distract ourselves from the views out the window by looking at some pretty pretties instead.

I must admit, the Desert Spring Collection does bridge the gap between happiness (summer) and misery (winter) quite nicely.

You’ve got a bit of Turquoise Nail Polish to remind you of those halcyon, balmy days WE NEVER HAD and the Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Blue Moon shouldn’t smudge too easily as we sob the makeup OFF OUR FACES.  Finally, the Creamy Colour for Lips and Cheeks looks suitably frost-bitten for when it’s still DARK IN THE MORNING and you’re scraping the ice off your car with your credit card ‘cos you’ve lost the scraper and the de-icer in the can has frozen solid.

Yeah, it looks quite promising.

I’m lusting after the eye palette (always the palettes Bobbi!), the blush/bronzer duo and the vampier polish of the duo.  The collection is set to launch next month online at BobbiBrown.co.uk and across counters nationwide.

Got any early favourites?

    You crack me up!
    The eye shadow palette would keep me nicely focused away from the window-grimness.

    Love fall colors, would wear them all year long. I bought the bronzer/blush and the eye palette. The btown shade in the bronzer used to be a regular blush in the line. It probably had a more velvety finish when it was, this finish is quite dry, but the color is amazing. The pink color barely shows up, and I have porcelain skin, so I paid a lot for a brown/mauve blush. Hope I can find a dupe! The eye palette is, unfortunately, as many are, a rip off. Only three or four of the eight colors show up. The twilight shade is almost identical to the brown blush shade, love it, mix it with cement (which is in the regular line) to make a warm lid shade. The liner shade is nice, if a bit on the bluer rather than browner plum side. The Navajo is a former regular from the line as well. The colors I’ve mentioned I love, but I could have gotten full sized ones and put them in a palette and had it last for years. $60 was a bit much for four tiny eyeshadows. Hopefully, I can dupe twilight and put together a forever palette for myself.
