Spotted: Bobbi Brown Neon and Nudes

This week, with all the #lfw tweets, blog posts and online articles flying about, I’m certainly feeling the excitement of new trends that spring brings. Of course that doesn’t just extend to fashion but also beauty, as models are sent down the catwalk with striking looks and sometimes extreme styles. The trick is, how to translate this to the high street?

I don’t cover every cosmetic house’s new collections, just the ones that appeal to me, Florence Finds is after all an edited collection of things I love and hope you will too, so you’ll understand why I’m sharing this look. It’s right up my street. Allow me to share the Bobbi Brown Neon and Nudes collection

Usually known for wearable subtle looks, this one is no exception when it comes to wearability, but is significantly less subtle. I love Bobbi’s lip colours and the three additions within this collection could well be winging their way directly into my make-up bag. Look out for Neon Pink, Atomic orange and a ‘perfect nude’ to balance the eye shades that are part of this collection. Not normally a fan of nude or a pale lip, even I might be tempted to try this one out.

A full on bright lip needs a pared back face and Bobbie has created two softer blush shades to work with, not fight against, the lip shades. Add to that the super user friendly felt tip ink liner and you’re good to go.

Of course, neon lips aren’t a look everyone wants to rock, but if you prefer the focus on your eyes there are two lovely (and more subtle than they look in the palette) shades – bluebell and ultra violet. Personally I think the most wearable item in the collection also easily makes it into the must-have list for every woman’s make-up bag – a palette of classic nudes for every occasion.

Lastly, check out the bright and juicy glosses – perfect for spring and again, a lot more subtle than they look

There’s even a how-to video…

  1. Do you know what’s strange, Rebecca, I photographed that Bobbi Brown ad for make-up inspiration for my next night out! The bared back face and eyes are perfectiion – and that lip – how neon orange came not to be garish I’ll never know, but it’s about as far away from garish as is humanly possible – I adore.

    Also love the earrings. I’m definitely buying Atomic Orange x

  2. Rebecca… why have you posted this today?! Am *popping* to the shops this evening as my foundation has ran out and I have to walk past Bobbi Brown on the way to the counter…

    I may just have to pick up the perfect nude and the Atomic Orange!!


  3. Not really a pink or blue girl, but I love green and gold eye shadows. I have a very bright green from Urban Decay, but would love a really bright sharp yellow. Can’t seem to find one (there is on in a YSL pallet this season but the other colours are rather drab 🙁 ).

    Any suggestions? I know Mac do one. Ta!

  4. mmmmmm. Delish!

    Neon orange looks odd on me, unless I’m (Essex or holiday) tanned to the max but you know I love a pink… seeing as how perfectly it will match my newly acquired neon pink clutch, I might have to do some online make up purchasing today seeing as I can’t be trusted to actually visit/purchase at the counter, I go in to Make Up Daze and it gets dangerous

  5. I’m scared of lipstick!! And have never worn it…the closest I get is this lip tint/felt pen thing buy maybeline that I bought on a whim otherwise I’m just a gloss girl, who secretly wishes she could wear awesomeness on her face!

    • The first time I wore red lipstick I felt like a clown – Anna K quite rightly said on twitter the other day, you feel like everyone is staring at you and you look like an idiot. It changes your whole face.

      Then after that you just feel arse-kickingly awesome and invincible, totally in control.

      Buy a cheap one and try it. You’ll forget about it and everyone will look and think – ‘who’s that girl with the balls to wear a mouth like that?’ 😉

      OK, neon pep talk over! xo

      • agreed. It’s like the first time for anything a bit “different”… have to be brave and jump in and style it out, even if you’re scared or thik you’re getting funny looks. A bit like the first time I wore those Henry Holland suspender tights, or a big pom pom on my head… hmmm maybe that’s just me though. Either way, don’t be scared. Jump in, take the look and make it your own!

        I think we’re lucky to live in the UK where you can pretty much go out in anything you like, and aside from one or two odd looks, people just go “oh yeah… this is Britian, we’re odd/eccentric/crazy with the styling, that’s cool” and no one really judges.

        Except Heat magazine with their Circle of Shame, but really who cares about that?

        I can’t remember when I started wearing a strong lip colour. The people at work were a bit shocked when they first saw it (one comment from my very straight-laced American boss, “oh, how very Italian Widow” – whatever that’s supposed to mean!?) but now they say that I don’t look like “me” if I’m not wearing a strong lip and ask me what’s wrong or where it’s gone. I forget it’s even there…
