  1. Yvette

    I am wearing it right now with a little bit of goldyrocks dazzleglass in the middle :)

  2. Cathy

    i just pair mine with gold rebel l/g from the collection…i was thinking about trying goldyrocks though!

  3. Since it is a nudey pink I’d probably go dramatic with the eyeshadows. I wore it yesterday with a mix of purples from my coastal scents 88 palette and stila’s cherry stain on my cheeks. I paired it with victoria secret’s beauty rush lip gloss in a tan color. I think it might have been sold out as I can’t find it on the site, it smells like coffee.

  4. Mary

    I think it would look better with Bare Necessity Dazzleglass, actually! :)

  5. Lucie

    I would make the look quite natural – tinted moisturiser, soft peachy colour blush on cheeks, and grey or brown smokey eye look, that does not really stand out, just make the eyes look brighter :P.

    this lippie looks craptastic on me without gloss. I love using Melt In Your Mouth cremesheen. It also looks awesome with Gold Rebel or Pink Grapefruit lipglass. Anything to tone it more pink or more peach…. anything to get me away from the mud brown that it is on me alone lol

  7. Mara

    I have been wearing Brave New Bronze quite a bit, these days! I’ve worn it with neutrals, peaches and orangey/gold sunset eyes. I have also paired it with Bare Necessity Dazzleglass, Gold Rebel Lipglass, and Love Nectar Lustreglass. :)

    i am wearing it today with a tiny little bit of lancome juicy tubes in lumious in lace overtop.

  9. MizSusann

    Pretty but it doesn’t work for me, my lips are naturally too dark and a shade like this will make me look washed out.

  10. BaDKiTTy

    I did a look on saturday using Bran New Bronze l/s.
    I did brown smokey eyes. With Satin Taupe, Time and Space and UD Sellout e/s.
    I think anything smokey will look good with this lipstick.

  11. The smokier the better!

  12. Sarah

    Yes, soeaking of smokey eyes, I remember a Kiera Knightley look – bronze smokey eyes, bronzed skin and a nude shade very similar to this. So utterly smexy.

    I would also use this lipstick to create a very summery look with apricot and turquoise on eyes.

  13. Marley

    Literally anything and everything! It works as a perfect nude for me…MLBB! I’m completely crazy about it

  14. Aramis

    ive paired it with gold rebel, goldy rocks and also girl’s delight. As for eye combinations with anything since it pretty much a neutral color.

  15. Liz V.

    I know this sounds weird but I layer some pink fish TLC and then I but BNB on top. It gives it a little more pink tint to it and it also helps with the dryness of the satin finish. It makes this lippie seem more like a cremesheen finish when I do this. This the perfect way to wear it for me.

  16. hi

    It’d be really pretty with gold/bronze eyes! Lets see.. Indianwood paint pot all over lid, Nylon on inner lid, Goldmine on middle lid, Sable on outer lid and crease, Graphblack technakohl on upper lashline smudged, Teddy kohl smudged on lower lashline and Goldmine on inner lower lashline. Fill in brows, black Plushlash, a shade of MAC’s Bronzing Powder that fits your skin tone on apples of cheeks, BNB on lips with Nymphette lipglass. It makes it this gorgeous nude pink color :[)

  17. Ms Trendy

    i’ve tried it with utterly posh dazzleglass and it was a nice peachy tan bronze colour… try it!

  18. Yaya

    Thanks for this post. I have been wondering about a good gloss to pair this with, now I have lots of ideas. I tried it with Liberated Lipglass and I don’t think it looked good with my pale skin. I’m thinking Queen Bee from Naked Honey might look nice.

  19. nell

    Sofia I have really pigmented lips and I always fill in my lips with lipliner. For this look I used gingeroot creamstick liner,brave new bronze lipstick, and lovenectar lusterglass. Summerfruit creamstick liner looks nice also; its a coral shade, really pretty.

  20. I bought this thinking I would love it even as a satin with no gloss. However, on me, it is so boring, I have to wear Smile dazzleglass over it.

  21. Lisa

    i think I’d kill it with a smokey eye! electra, silver ring and carbon on eyes w/ a blush like springsheen or benefit’s coralista :)

  22. EYES: Some silver/grey/black eye smoked out with a bronze.
    CHEEKS: Soft peachy bronze (cool undertoned)

  23. Julie

    I LOVE pairing this lipstick with a natural face, with only a winged brown liner on my upper lash line and white liner on my bottom lash line :)

  24. Kaylabella

    i just layered Extra Amps Dazzleglass over Brave New Bronze, it brings out a bit more pink and makes it a little more glam with the glitter!

  25. Desi

    I did it with Nice Buzz plushglass : ) It looks to die for with the gold rebel or liberated lipglass from the Style Warriors collection though. Honestly, the color is so versatile. Here’s a look I created with it : )

  26. i pair Love Nectar lustreglass with Brave New Bronze.. makes lips look so juicy! thanks to temptalia, i found my perfect pink nude l/s which is Brave new Bronze!

    other than that, i line my eyes with a green-black eyeliner with shimmer, pair the lip combo with highlighter & a matte pink guava blush..

  27. Candice

    I did a very smokey eye with Carbon, and Black Tied. It came out fabulous.. later on that night I wore a necklace with quite a bit of turquoise (and turquise pumps with a black pencil skirt and bronze top) so I threw in some Jewel Blue just to make it pop and it worked :)

  28. Jas

    I use the liberated lipglass, on top of it, and because it’s a nude pink colour, i like to pair it with colours like vibrant grape and carbon and maybe even shadowy lady to create a smokey eye :)

  29. Shepaley

    I think a great combination would be Gold eyeshadow like Mac Retrospeck. Black liquid liner, smolder on the waterline, any thickening mascara!

    Honestly, i think Mac Eversun blush was made to go with this lipstick. I think they would really compliment each other.

    Lips: I think BNB would work wonders with NARS Chihuahua lipgloss or any other mid tone nudey pink it just gives that sexy summer pout! Simple sizzling!! 😉
