Bobbi Brown Almost Bare Collection for Summer 2011

“From bronzers to the light shimmery glosses, The Almost Bare Collection creates the gorgeous sun kissed look you get after a day at the beach, one of my favorite sources of inspiration.” — Bobbi Brown

Bronzing Powder ($33.00)

Formulated for all skin types, Bobbi’s Bronzing Powder has just the right mix of red and brown—the colors you’d find in a true tan—to give skin a warm tint of healthy-looking color. What makes it so wearable? The lightweight mica-free powder applies smoothly and evenly and feels ultra-comfortable on skin. Now, this makeup bag essential is available in two new limited edition shades ideal for darker skin tones.

  • Deep Chocolate (Limited Edition)
  • Rich Cocoa (Limited Edition)

High Shimmer Lipgloss ($22.00)

Because there’s nothing sexier than glossy lips paired with luminous skin, Bobbi introduces her most high shine gloss ever. This ultra shiny formula glides on smoothly and offers medium to full color coverage that makes lips look lush and full.

  • Pink Tulle (Limited Edition)
  • Citrus (Limited Edition)
  • Bellini (Limited Edition)

Almost Bare Fragrance ($60.00)

A Bobbi Brown classic, this fresh floral eau de parfum features a delicate balance of inspiring Italian Bergamot blended with Violet Leaves to relax and soothe the senses. The scent is enhanced by a note of Soft Muguet and gentle Jasmine Petals with a Soft Cedar and Warm Amber background.

availability: May 2011 at all Bobbi Brown Counters and on

    This is “Almost a collection”.

  2. Dini

    Finally – bronzing powder for darker skin tones. I can’t wait to check that out.

  3. Hmm, I love BB but not sure I’m such a fan of this collection. I find that a lot of lower end cosmetics (not all!) have lower color payout so if I wanted something “barely there” I would save a few bucks and buy a lipgloss at the local drugstore.

    I am interesting in the fragrance, though. Will have to check it out!

  4. Bianca

    The model is so gorgeous!!! She looks fresh & natural! I love her cheek bones!

  5. Dana

    This collection is a little underwhelming to me

  6. Mary

    Loving the lipgloss colors, hopefully they are pigmented since it’s medium to full color, I’m so tired of sheer glosses that barely show up. Can’t wait to see swatches and in person.

    Not really impressed by this Bobbi brown new collection

  8. Bobbi Brown- “Almost Boring” Summer Collection

  9. JudithB

    OMGosh I love this picture, its so beautiful. Doesn’t look overly airbrushed like most pictures now a days.

  10. mandee

    holy cheekbones on that model!!!

  11. OK, I am in agreement that this is so not a real collection but these bronzer’s have a brown skinned sista like myself super duper excited!!

  12. Ivy

    This model’s face is so naturally contoured, she definitely doesn’t need any more contour…

  13. Kate

    Thank god for the doe foot! I really hope Bobbi Brown makes these the permanent style for all her lipglosses, I would like them so much more if I didnt have to deal with that awful brush!

  14. Saffy

    A bronzer, 3 lip glosses and a perfume is a “collection”?

    The final look on the model is pretty, but it’s the same neutral, predictable look that Clinique releases every season at a much cheaper price point.

  15. Ivy

    This is interesting news. Her Dark and Deep bronzer colors are already pretty awesome for dark skin tones. I can’t wait to see this.

    And this promo pic is amazing! A cosmetics ad featuring a model who actually looks like she’s got something on her mind.

  16. The lipglosses look gorgeous in the tube, but if the model is wearing them, it doesnt look ‘high shimmer’ at all… I hope we get to see some swatches =))

  17. I love the “bare-faced” (usually anything but!) look, so this collection is kind of cool. But doesn’t really excite me to buy. And I’m not crazy about the model’s smirk, either.

    Good luck with finals, Christine!

  18. Don’t really care about this collection, but I find it interesting that the model’s facial features are quite asymmetrical (for a model, at least).

    What bites though is that I’m an NC45 and I just bought the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Deep like two or three months ago! And it’s the best bronzer I’ve ever used in my life, and NOW Bobbi comes out with these two supposedly mauch darker bronzing powders and they have to be LE too? I use the Deep permanent bronzing powder everyday now as weather in April has been great in London for the most part, and it’s excellent but what if those two new LE colors are even better?

    I feel too guilty….

  20. Mina

    i cant wait 2 see swatches!

  21. I think this collection was probably a reflection of Kate Middleton and her opting to look natural on her wedding day…? Bobbi Brown artist, after all, attended to the bride’s party.

  22. i’m so looking forward for this new collection, especially the high shimmer lip gloss.

    And it is so nice that they come in a new bigger size, with a sponge, and not the peacock brush.

    since I’m such a boring loser when it comes to makeup, I was all over this like white on rice. Love the new oil free TM, and also bought the gloss and Citrus which is gorgeous!!! It’s the only one that truly stands out to me, and has tons of fun microglitter in it.
