"A soft cheek, nude eye and flattering nectar lip - the ultimate beach to cocktail look" - Bobbi Brown

A perfect start to Spring, Bobbi Brown Nectar & Nude Collection keeps to this season's nude hues for eyes with bursts of apricot nectar, pink corals and true peaches for lips, cheeks and nails. It consists of wearable shades that gives the skin a subtle warm glow. If you guys have been following my Bobbi Brown posts, I actually previewed the Nectar & Nude Collection at the Bobbi Brown Spring/Summer 2014 Makeup School and got to try out the colours some time in January (Read here). The collection is out in stores now.

Bobbi Brown Nectar & Nude Collection centres around the eye palette. Keeping to the nude trend, the Nectar & Nude Eye Palette (Limited Edition) consists of a combination of soft taupes and warm browns with four matte shades, one metallic and one sparkle. Sure it's another nude palette but there a quite a bit you can do with it. That's the best part about nudes. When Kai Vinson, Bobbi Brown'a Regional Director of Education & Artistry in Asia Pacific, tried the colours on me at the Bobbi Brown Spring 2014 Makeup School he used a cream shadow stick to make the colours pop and show how versatile this palette can be just by adding on one other eye product. To do justice to this palette I dropped by my fave Bobbi Brown Store and got Michael to show me how to use the colours on it's own and it still looks great. I noticed when I did the swatches the lighter colours appeared to be on the softer side and the metallic and sparkle shades doesn't really deliver much colour just subtle shimmer and sparkle. It however comes together when you layer the colours. Use the softer shades as a base to even out the colour of your lids. The metallic and sparkle are subtle enough to be worn even in the day. Retails at RM195.
