Bobbi Brown Spring 2012 Collection: Neons & Nudes

“The most modern way to wear bright color is as an accent on an otherwise neutral face.” — Bobbi Brown

The Neons & Nudes Collection features a unique pairing of bright, neon colors that are balanced by soft nudes and neutrals. Pair a soft, nude eye with a neon lip or a bright eye with a nude lip depending on your mood.

Ultra Nude Eye Palette ($45.00) (Limited Edition)

  • Stone (Eyeshadow)
  • Chino (Eyeshadow)
  • Pink Chandelier (Metallic Eyeshadow)
  • Praline (Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow)
  • Champagne Truffle (Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow)
  • Cocoa Berry (Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow)

Ink Liner ($24.00) (Limited Edition)

This liner is the perfect complement to the neon and nude face. Offering the precise, dramatic look of liquid liner, it easily defines the eye. The slanted, flexible felt tip applicator releases rich pigment in one simple stroke, and since the formula is long-wearing, there is no need to re-apply throughout the day.

  • Really Black Black

Lip Gloss ($23.00) (New, Permanent)

Gorgeous, sheer and super shiny, these lip glosses are pure fun and will pair perfectly with a nude eye to polish off your look.

  • Cosmic Pink Pink
  • Citrus Tangerine

Lip Color ($23.00) (Limited Edition)

Two super vibrant colors and one neutral shade, these new lip colors are made of a unique blend of Beeswax and Vitamins E and C for comfortable wear.

  • Atomic Orange Orange
  • Neon Pink Pink
  • Uber Beige Beige

Eyeshadow ($21.00) (New, Permanent)

  • Ultra Violet (Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow)
  • Bluebell (Eyeshadow)

Blush ($24.00) (New, Permanent)

Nothing gives the face a lift like blush. These two universally flattering, muted pink and peach blush shades are the perfect complement to brightly accented eyes and lips.

  • Nude Peach Soft peach
  • Nude Pink Soft pink

availability: January 2012 (I saw a few pieces pop up at Nordstrom this morning!)

    I really wish those lip glosses weren’t sheer. They look so pretty and colorful.

    Love the neon shade lip colors and the nude palette! There’s no such thing as too many nude palettes…right? Or so I say because I’m totally buying it! ;)

  3. I got Cosmic Pink even though it’s quite sheer, I love neon pink for brightening up my face :).

  4. Ps. This display was at my Nordstrom (Valley Fair) already last night, which is where I got my Cosmic Pink :)

    They are available on NeimanMarcus.com too with free shipping codes available.

    Oh no, I want…everything!

    I don’t own any Bobbi Brown products, but these promo photos are really appealing to me.

  8. Oh yes. I have a feeling this collection is going to be a hit! Bobbi Brown doing brights? *gasp* xP

  9. I feel like I’ve seen these sorts of colours before, but the Ultra Violet shadow looks amazing and I generally love her shimmer wash shades. It does seem sort of strange to be looking at Spring collections on a day when we’re expecting our first major snowstorm of the winter, but I’ll take it…

  10. nitnot

    Can I just say I love that promo picture? I already want everything from this. EVERYTHING.

    Also, is it possible the sheer lipgloss is supposed to be layered with the lipsticks?? How fun would that be?

  11. Jill

    I love these! Can’t wait to see them in person.

  12. Christine the naked 2 palette is available on Sephora! Just letting you know! Love love love your blog by the way and congrats on your engagement!

  13. shiny

    ho-lee-wow! This looks like so much fun! Wonder what the colour payoff is going to be like?

  14. I can’t wait for swatches, this looks interesting

    As a die-hard fan of BB this newest release is super exciting…this shades are bright to the BB family but a welcome addition. I’m curious find out what they have done with the pot rouges since I heard that those will be reformulated and re-released in January.

  16. Sexy Sadie

    wow, lovely.

  17. Lucia

    Omg….I want ALL the lipglosses, the peach blush, and the eyeshadow palette. Simply gorgeous. I love that the glosses will offer a sheer wash of bright color.

  18. Adrienne

    I’m interested in the ink liner and peach blush!

  19. Lucia

    My cheeks are saying bonjour to those blushes as soon as I can get to a counter, once again Bobbi lures me in!!

  20. Danni

    I love this collection especially the shadows. :)

    The Nude look is classic and one of my all time favorites.
    Really good post! :)

  21. I wonder what the orange lip colour will look like when swatched!

    First, the products look stellar. Great concept but I keep struggling with their artistic direction and execution. “Python & Peonies” got me all confused. It was a really awesome palette, but I didn’t get why it was important to name an entire collection after that. Or using tortoise shell glasses as inspiration. Random, but ok. And now we have the promo pic that looks like a red light disctrict sign. Neons & Nudes make me think of Miami’s beaches, not a creepy basement. I’m puzzled.

  23. I can’t wait for this collection to come out… i am falling in love with the purple eyeshadow and the lipglossess……drooling… :O)

  24. Ashley Seme

    This collection actually really excites me! Any chance you will be reviewing any of these items, Christine? And thanks for the post, can’t wait to see them in person ASAP!

    Im really looking forward to the mix of vibrants and neutrals of this collection. I was so unimpressed with the holiday collections, except for a wee bit of LM twilight. I resisted them. It was hard!

  26. Melissa

    We got the collection at our counter at Lord & Taylor last week.

    I. Love. IT.

    The purple gloss is amazing over the neon pink lip color.
    The “nude” blushes are pretty bright and pigmented.
    Ultra Violet was in her brights palette and I am SO HAPPY to see it return.
    I am so glad some of these are permanent! I never want the felt tip liner to go away, though. It’s excellent.

    I love this look. I will be rocking it ALL SPRING.

  27. Caiti

    LOVE the palette–I will need to see it in person to determine how warm the colors are…and I must also have the pink lipstick. Nothing is prettier than a bright mouth with a nude eye.

  28. The palette looks nice!

  29. Hend

    I love this collection ! I love the concept and the colours !

  30. Emma

    to die for!! I’ve never been into bobbi brown but this looks awesome!

  31. Rica

    When will it come out in January?

  32. iliana

    I just wish Bobbi Brown would come up with names better than “Neon Pink” then have a one word description for the product (pink). I know she’s like the queen of simple/neutral makeup looks but the product descriptions just lack important details (and make them sound boring).

    Other than that, the products look amazing in the photos and I can’t wait for the collection to come out!

  33. Yazmin

    wow a bobbi brown collection i actually am excited for

  34. Nicole

    The eye palette is calling my name, because the colors seem to be cooltoned.

    Are there any swatches online, yet?

  35. I’ve been dying for some neon lipsticks…. These look soooo pretty!

  36. Melody

    …I feel like Bobbi is behind on this. This has been done. The nude palette is quite lovely, though.

  37. puffnstuff

    ohhhh i love that bright red/orange lippy!!

  38. CChee

    Just try out the palette and neon pink. I thought I could not pull bright lipstick, but ended surprise. I love how it looks on me, got the palette, but the pink lipstick is sold out in the store and I have to go somewhere else to grab it.
    The eye shadow of the palette is not that sheer. The combination is just perfect for me.

  39. Jazz

    I want that purple shadow, and the glosses :)

  40. Lily

    I just got the eyeliner at Nordstroms. The make up artist also put the blush on my cheek (the pink) over a bronzer and it looks gorgeous. She also topped it off with the sheer hot pink lip gloss. So pretty! I wish I could get it all…

  41. Tyler

    The payoff of the Ultra Violet eyeshadow is awful.. Little to none fallout from the silver reflects. With a primer it’s very patchy, and extremely sheer. You’d have to pack it on and use a colored base (which is gorgeous) to get the pan color. Disappointed!

  42. Rica

    Oooh! This is thrilling! Thanks christine! Please keep us posted when will it be released officially, i want to buy their lipsticks! :)

  43. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Pamyla PJ

    I love BB, and this collection looks so beautiful,— on the model, but she looks like a teenager.(love the freckles!) Still, I couldnt pass on the entire BB spring collection– the felt tip liner looked intriguing, so I bought IT!

  44. sarah

    would love to see you do swatches of the blushes!!
