Bobbi Brown launched a Pink Raspberry look for Spring 2008 and I found it underwhelming. However, Bobbi Brown has also launched a Nude Collection set for release in March 2008 in the USA. I don’t know what it is about cosmetic companies and nude collections. MAC Cosmetics have also launched their N Collection which is a bunch of nude or neutral colours too. Coming from a company that thrives on colour, that is truly strange.

Anyway, here is a sneak preview of Bobbi Brown’s Nude Collection:

2294594983 1d2b6d3100 o Bobbi Brown Nude collection   Spring 2008

The main item is the Nude Eye and Lip palette. 4 nude eye colours i.e. 4 varying shades of beige and 4 lip colours i.e. 4 varying shades of brown.

I think it looks boring. The 4 eyeshadow shades – Buff Shimmer Wash, Nude Shimmer Wash, Bare and Naked - have little variation to create much definition. There is no dark colour that could be used for lining or for use in the crease so effectively you get 4 base shades.

I always found Bobbi Brown lip colours too brown for my liking. My natural lip color is a medium rose red shade so brown colours on my lips make them look odd not natural.

So overall, I think this is a very safe palette for anyone wanting to put colour on their faces without looking like they put any colour on. Kind of makes me wonder why icon razz Bobbi Brown Nude collection   Spring 2008

Update 7 March 2008: It will retail at RM210 at Bobbi Brown counters

Yep I agree. It’s REALLY boring. I’m all for office-friendly nudes, but after the Stonewashed collection, nothing from BB really got me excited.

Oh, strangely, stonewashed launched in Australia only a couple of weeks ago and I’ve got an interesting take on it. Will post a post soon. I hope. Before the end of the century :P

Geekchic: Haha… I was keen on Pink Raspberry but after testing it I gave up on it. Will stalk your site to see your take on stonewashed!
