Fresh from the runway, Bobbi Brown introduces the Lilac Rose Collection. She’s taken this season’s prettiest trend and added her own modern and fresh twist. I always look to Bobbi Brown for inspiration and the Lilac Rose Collection is one of the prettiest color-stories for Spring. Read on for more..

This has been a spring of beautiful makeup collections, but in my world, the new Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Collection gets my vote for most romantic colors. With washes of lilac and rose shades, this collection has shades that everyone will love. A bit reminiscent of the Tibi Collaboration that I flipped over, the shades in this collection are more feminine, more springy and completely wearable. These are colors that you’ll reach for again and again.

The star of the collection is the Lilac Rose Eye Palette ($60), which features eight eye shadows including Ivory Eye Shadow, Heather Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow, Pale Rose Eye Shadow, Dusty Lilac Eye Shadow, Barely There Eye Shadow, Black Chocolate Eye Shadow, Stormy Grey Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow and Pink Lily Metallic Eye Shadow. The Lilac Rose Eye Palette features the slide-out “drawer”, so four shadows are on top, four on bottom. The colors in this palette are so pretty and versatile. I especially love the Pink Lily Metallic Eye Shadow and Stormy Grey Shimmer Wash Eye Shadows. I love playing with the different textures, too. This palette won’t disappoint!

The Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick ($42) is the modern way to wear shimmer. The colors in this Shimmer Brick are various shades of pink, from bright to icy pink. I love using a Shimmer Brick as a highlighter/luminizer on top of cheekbones.

It’s hard to believe I hadn’t tried a Sparkle Eye Shadow yet, but the wait was worth it. The new limited-edition Lilac shade is a beautiful color, with a glitter effect that is so pretty alone or swept over another shadow. I guess I was always afraid that the “sparkle” would be too much; not at all–it’s really lovely.

To keep everything in balance, the new limited-edition Pastel Pink Blush ($25) is fresh and pretty for spring. This is a natural pop of pink that anyone will be able to wear. It’s subtle; no worries about going overboard. I’ll be sweeping this shade over my bronzer, too.

There are three new shades of Lip Gloss: Lilac Rose, Pink Lily (my favorite) and Pink Lilac Brightening Lip Gloss. These shades are instant pickups…my favorite shades of the season!

Also in the collection is a new Nail Polish ($18) in limited-edition Roza; a pale heather pink. While I prefer brights, the pale nail was all over the runways for spring. This is a pretty interpretation of the trend. I’m so glad that Bobbi is including nail polish in her collections!
