Bobbi Brown Beach Nudes: Sunkissed Pink Review & Swatches

Bobbi Brown Beach Nudes Collection

The Bobbi Brown Beach Nudes Collection is all about enhancing a sunkissed glow. It includes 3 limited edition Eye Palettes in Pink, Nude and Gold and Sheer Lip Colours in Peach Sorbet, Pink Gold and Boho Breeze.

Stone Street bronzer, (above) is a bit deep for my colouring, but if you like very natural looking 100% matte bronzer, I'd urge you to try Bobbi Brown as theirs is the best I've tried and comes in 8 shades (I like Golden Light).

I struggle to find a really good peach lipstick that doesn't look too young or sickly sweet and Peach Sorbet is perfect... a very pretty, semi-sheer shade with a moisturising formula.

Bobbi Brown Beach Nudes Sunkissed Pink Eye Palette

Sunkissed Pink Eye Palette (check that rose gold packaging) includes four versatile shades that work from day to evening. If you're a little timid about pink eye shadow, this is a great place to start as the pink is very soft and looks barely deeper than my skin tone.

Bobbi Brown Sunkissed Pink Swatches

The metallic bronze shade is gorgeous and can be applied with a fluffy brush for a light wash of colour, packed on for more intensity (my swatch shows two passes of colour) or used wet for a foil like finish. I like to use Smashbox Primer Water for extra staying power, though regular water works too. 

The cream and dark bitter chocolate (almost a charcoal brown) are matte and the pink gives a soft wash of colour with fine shimmer. I like to start with a wash of cream, add the pink all over my lid, then bronze on the outer 2/3 and finish with the dark brown as smoked out liner. 

While the above swatches are on bare skin, on my eyes I've been wearing these colours over MAC Prep & Prime, which does a great job at keeping shadow crease free and in place all day.
