Bobbi Brown Nudes Collection 2009

Bobbi Brown Nudes Collection 2009

Bobbi Brown’s newest take on nude makeup—a concept she created. ‘Nude makeup doesn’t mean monochromatic, barely-there makeup. It means makeup that’s right for your skin,’ says Bobbi. Fall’s must-have eye palette takes you effortlessly from day to night with a sophisticated and universally flattering selection of nude shadows in three different textures: soft matte, lightly pearlized and metallic high-shimmer. Three eyeshadow duos come in a customizable 3-Pan Palette, which can also be filled with your choice of any Bobbi Brown eyeshadow or blush shades.

Nude Eye Palette ($60.00)

  • Contains Navajo/Pebble, Chino/Beige Linen Wash and Maple Sugar/Caviar duos, exclusive to this set.

Nude Shimmer Brick ($38.00)

The iconic Shimmer Brick is now available in the perfect everyday shade: Nude. This hand-made brick features five pure pearl pigments—pink, gold, bronze, beige and caramel—designed to be blended together to give all skin tones a soft, lit-from-within glow. Layer over blush as highlighter or use individual shades on lids for a sheer, pearlized look.

Make Up For Ever Launches HD Elixir

Make Up For Ever Launches HD Elixir

Dry, flaky skin is never attractive, but when magnified in high definition format, it becomes unacceptable and makes applying make up a challenge. Make up artists must combat skin dehydration on actors immediately before applying foundation to create a flawless complexion that is worthy of cameras that see 6x what the human eye sees. With no time to wait for results from moisturizers that may take several days to reverse dryness, the artists turned to Dany Sanz, Creator and Artistic Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER, for a solution.

Created specifically to instantly boost skin’s moisture to create a perfectly smooth palette for HD Complexion make up, HD Elixir is a unique hybrid serum that is part skincare and part make up. Clinical tests proved that HD Elixir boosted skin’s moisture a whopping 520% after 15 minutes and continued to hold in moisture at 490% after 30 minutes and 430% after one hour. In addition to the instant surge of moisture, HD Elixir also restores skin’s radiance and erases signs of fatigue, actually firming and giving skin a smooth and soft texture.

To use: Using the push button dropper, squeeze one pump into fingers and apply all over face or solely to very dry areas before HD Microperfecting Primer and HD Invisible Cover Foundation. Wait until serum has been fully absorbed by skin before applying next product.

Available at exclusively at Sephora beginning June 12th. Retail price is $38.00. You can learn more at
