Personally, I’m not a huge pink fan most of the time – but I do think it’s the sort of shade that really suits everyone – as long as the right shade works a treat to perk up the skin and just deliver that perky flush that everyone loves a bit of for a glow. The Bobbi Brown Uber Pink Collection manages to deliver the gorgeous perky pink shades that are absolute perfection – as long as you don’t mind a touch of shimmer with your cheek colour. Oh…and a baby pink nail and natural lip to match.
The two cheek colours (apparently ‘illuminating bronzers’…but I think they’re more like blushers) in ‘Be Bold’ (Pink Peony) and ‘Be Pretty’ (Antigua). Be Bold is the pinker shade of the two, Be Pretty is the peachy pink shade – both with just enough of a touch of shimmer to add glow, but not over doing it. It’s not shimmer that ends up looking like a disco ball. I really like both of these shades, but if I had to call it I would say that Be Pretty is my favourite of the two – I’m a sucker for anything with a hint of peach. Be Bold is a bright Barbie pink shade, pink with a bit of a blue-toned shade.
Then to top of the ‘Uber Pink’ look there’s also a gorgeous pink lippie – that’s my new favourite ‘my lips but better’ shade (I do hate that expression, but it does sum the shade up perfectly) I’ve swatched the lipstick so you can see it sheer and layered for different effect. The lipstick is the shade ‘Pink kiss’ and is currently down as a possible for the wedding day – which goes perfectly with the pink nail shade that I included in my ‘Wedding nails‘ traditional options round up. It’a very typical sheer, baby pink – not my usual nail colour of choice, but very classic. On the lip front there’s also a brighter offering called ‘Neon Pink’ for a more stand out look (yes please!)
The Illuminating Bronzers are definitely the top pick of the collection for me – both gorgeous and nice and big so will last a nice long time! Plus the ‘Be Bold’ and ‘Be Pretty’ embossing does add a lovely touch…
