I love Spring; when things start to come to life again and the world turns green. But mostly, so I can rotate my makeup wardrobe. Yes, I look forward to a new season specifically so I can change up my beauty stash and shed the darker colors of Winter and don the softer shades of Spring. Which is why I’m so excited with Bobbi Brown’s Cabana Corals , her swoon-worthy Spring Collection. Now, we’re a little late to the party in bringing this collection to you, so I’m sure you’ve probably heard the buzz about this already, but if you haven’t already sought it out, you need to do it soon, because some of the items are already sold out!
I typically only wear coral shades during the Spring and Summer months, and even then finding a flattering one can be tricky. Bobbi has taken care of that, of course, saying that the shade range for Cabana Corals “spans from fresh new Pink Corals to universal Nude Corals to true Coral shades—every woman can find the coral shade that’s right for her”. I’m thinking I might need ALL of them…
The line consists of 11 new shades of five different products (Bobbi Brown, you spoil us!) I was lucky enough to test the Metallic Lip Colors in Coral Reef and the Shimmer Bricks in Pink Quartz, and now I want more!
The Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick Compact is the very first Shimmer Brick I’ve ever tried from this brand and I’m a little worried that I may have become addicted. The shades in this brick range from a very pale, almost chalky pink with shimmer, to a deep pink bronze shade. Once you sweep a fluffy brush across the bars, you get a lovely, healthy amount of shimmer that adds so much radiance it should be illegal. Even better, since this brick is composed of more neutral shades, the individual bars look great when applied as eye shadow. My hazel eyes were brightened considerably with just a sweep of this product. As I’m a fan of multi-tasking products, this Shimmer Brick is getting a lot of use. Now I think I might need the Nectar shade because the colors are so stunning and so pigmented that I think it could pass as blush (my weakness, I can never pass up a great blush).
Coral Reef is technically a Metallic Lip Color, but don’t let that scare you because it’s not at all metallic. The color is a very pale, milky peach that applies sheer with a slight hint of shimmer. It reminds me of a softer, retro 60’s lip. I am very fair, so the color disappears a little on me, but I think this would be killer on anyone with an olive complexion or if you had a slight tan (safely applied from a bottle, of course). It screams “beach goddess” to me. I had to apply this with a nude lip liner so my mouth didn’t completely disappear into my face and this really transformed my basic liner into something special. I’m now clamoring for a trip to my local Nordstrom so I can snag Calypso Glaze.
I could keep going on about how fabulous the Cabana Corals are, but that would just take up more of your precious time that is better spent hunting down the gorgeous, limited edition, and getting harder to find pieces of this collection—good luck, ladies!
