We all love Bobbi Brown cosmetics because she knows what flatters. She isn’t breaking ground with crazy colours, which I love too, but instead she is simply grounding. Find what flatters you, and have fun with it. And of course, pink is a universally flattering colour that, in the right shade, makes everyone looks amazing. So her Uber Pink Collection was really a natural progression. From Bobbi Brown:
Want to look and feel pretty in seconds? Try a pop of pink—it’s all you need. “From light to neutral, bright to bold, there’s a shade of pink to suit all skin tones,” Bobbi says. Featuring options for kissable lips to flirty tips, the Uber Pink collection is a totally modern monochromatic mix that can go sweet and subtle or deep and dramatic. The effect is instantly lifting, flattering and gorgeous.
I took a shine to the Be Pretty collection, which has the softer shades of nude-pink. Antigua Illuminating Bronzer has been a staple in my collection forever, and is the perfect sheer pink bronze blush. It’s an unusual bronzer-blush hybrid that I feel for immediately and cannot imagine not having handy. It’s perfect, buildable, and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

The real surprise in this collection for me was the lipstick. I don’t really wear lipstick, per se, but prefer sheer balm-type of lip products. But her lipstick in Pink Kiss won me over immediately – lipstick love! The perfect nude pink lip, without washing me out or looking weird and cakey on my lips, this velvety smooth semi-matte colour is da bomb.

Top it off with the pretty pretty Baby Pink Lip Gloss (which also looks lovely on it’s own) and you have a softly glam pink lip with some shine and depth.

Finally! A real grown-up lipstick I actually like and will wear. Leave it to Bobbi Brown to create a gorgeous and flattering colour that even a colour-phobe like me will wear!
