Regardless of how many gorgeous gray or plum colors I have in my collection, there is only one line that owns my heart with nude shades, and that is Bobbi Brown. The Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight Collection for Fall 2012 introduces a new assortment of eye, lip, cheek and nail (!) shades that take inspiration from the desert light.  Read on for more…

Highlights of the Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight Collection include:

The Limited-Edition Desert Twilight Eye Palette is the star of the collection. The eight eyeshadow shades include Navajo, Twilight Pink Metallic, Twilight Metallic, Cement, Pink Dusk, Metallic Dusk Sparkle, Water Color Pink Sparkle and Chocolate Mauve.  With different textures and finishes, this palette is as versatile as it is beautiful. $60

When I reach for eyeliner, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner is always my first go-to. Now in a new limited-edition shade called Twilight Night Shimmer Ink, this color is just beyond.  It’s a dark plum-bronze shade with a hint of shimmer that I’ll be wearing all year. I’m obsessed! $22


I received four new shades of Lip Gloss to preview (L-R)–Evening Rose Lip Gloss, Honeysuckle Lip Gloss, Twilight Lip Gloss, and Bronzed Heather High Shimmer Lip Gloss.  These shades give you plenty of options for summer-into-fall lip looks. Both formulas feel great on the lips because they contain botanicals to moisturize and condition, while being highly pigmented for maximum color.  $23

Remember a long time ago when Bobbi Brown had nail colors?  Then they went away (sad face)?  Two Nail Polish Shades are back in this collection. Turquoise, a true turquoise cream and Twilight Shimmer, a bronze shimmer. Of the two shades, I found Turquoise the easier color to wear and work with (see photo), but hard to photograph. I applied Turquoise over a coat of white to get maximum color saturation.  $18


The Bronzer/Blush Duo is another favorite product in the collection.  I prefer a bronzer and blush in the same compact; a bronzer alone can make you look washed out. This compact combines the Bahama Brown Shimmer Blush with Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzer for the perfect shade of sun-kissed. This combination will work year-round, so don’t put it away at the end of the summer! $36

The Desert Twilight Mini Brush Set contains four essential brushes, in a sleek, flat shape.  Housed in a gold, metallic case trimmed in turquoise, this brush set is as elegant as it is chic.  On the inside of the case, there’s a pocket, perfect for stashing your lip glosses or other necessities. As someone who always carries the right tools to do the job, if you haven’t invested in a nice set of travel brushes, this is one to consider. $55
