While I don’t quite understand the inspiration for Bobbi Brown‘s new Denim & Roses collection, it’s chock full of shimmer and shine, which I adore. The idea of denim & roses seems like a pre-fall collection to me, yet the colors in this collection scream summer nights.
The Denim & Rose Face Palette ($60) is definitely a winner. It’s loaded with icy greys and shimmering, deep blues to create a glam, chic smoky eye. The eyeshadows in this palette are so gorgeous. Limited edition. Palette contains:
Dark Rinse Shimmer Wash, a deep indigo blue loaded with shimmer
Grey Denim, medium cool grey
Pink Granite Sparkle Eye Shadow, an icy pink packed with glimmer, perfect for accenting smoky eyes
Navajo, a standard matte bone
Pink Rose blush, a neutral rose
Cool Rose Creamy Lip Color, a smooth, shimmering rose wash
Hot Rose Lip Gloss, one of the most vibrant, prettiest pink lip colors I’ve seen in awhile
Iced Lilac Glitter Lip Gloss, a pretty, cool lavender shade packed with semi-chunky glitter
Indie Rose Creamy Lip Color, medium neutral rose
Not a fan of the denim packaging…it looks kinda cheesy. And I wish there was a shimmery grey instead of the matte grey included. But it’s still a keeper.
Sparkle Eyeshadow in Blue Denim ($24) is so gorgeous, I want to use it day and night. Limited edition.
If you have trouble mastering the dewy-cheek look, try the Highlighter Pen ($32). This wand come pre-loaded with creamy liquid shimmer to make your cheekbones pop. Sweep on over makeup as a gleaming luminizer; apply under foundation for a diffused effect. Available in 3 shades: Rose Pink, Opal, and Bronze.
The collection also includes a mini brush set housed in a denim carrying case, and new shades of Shimmer Lip Gloss and Extreme Party Mascara.
