Bobbi Brown promises to keep us glowing, bright and smelling delicious all summer long with her new Miami Collection on counters this month. Inspired by the sun kissed glow of days spent on the beaches in Miami, the new range promises a fresh look with gold, coral and nectar shades. To transport you to the seaside on even the dullest of days, the newly relaunched Beach fragrance will keep you in a summery state of mind.
The Beach fragrance (RRP$95) captures the fearless, carefree spirit of summer. Refreshing and surprisingly warm, the fragrance is immediately consumed by top notes of Sand Jasmine. This blends with the more muted sea spray scent, a direct reference to the crashing waves and sunny days. Finally, the subtler, sweeter scent of mandarin settles in, leaving a fresh and intoxicating perfume. A few spritzes, and you will always be able to relive endless summer days. [Ed’s Note: we cannot stop spritzing this little fragrance, it’s summer heaven!]
To capture that natural summer sheen, add the limited edition Shimmering Fragrance Oil (RRP$70). Perfect for days when you’re going to bare a little more skin, this velvety moisturising oil will give your skin a sultry glow of a lazy day on the beach. Containing olive, sesame, avocado and jojoba oil, as well as Vitamins E and C, it will nourish your skin while leaving you deliciously fragrant. If you layer the oil with the Beach fragrance, you can expect a longer-lasting scent, that will take you all the way from the beach to the bar.
The Miami Collection also includes four new shades (Copper, Bronze Sugar, Nude Beach, Candelight) of long-wear cream shadow (RRP$50). The varying neutral champagne shades, have a soft finish designed to withstand the summer heat. The product promises to last for 12 hours without creasing or losing colour.
The limited edition treatment lip shine (RRP$46), is a lightweight product to add a little colour to your lips, while protecting it from the damaging effects of the harsh sun. Containing cocoa and shea butters as well as a number of natural oils, it will moisturise your lips and stimulate natural collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Available in Peach Sorbet, Pink Seashell, Sunset Beach and Orchid Pink.
The limited edition shimmer cheek glow (RRP$85) is a sheer powder that provides a weightless, natural glow. It glides on smoothly and leaves a sheen that is not glittery or greasy. Perfect for faking that lazy beach glow, even if you didn’t make it out of the office. Available in Miami and Gold.
Bobbi Brown has also just released a new cleansing oil (RRP$60). Infusing the benefits of jasmine flower, kukui nut and sunflower oils, the formula will cleanse and refresh your face. This is perfect for removing makeup at the end of the day, as the emollient oils are stubborn enough to break down face, eye and even lip makeup while infusing the skin with added moisture.
The Miami Collection and the Cleansing Oil are available this weekend from David Jones and Myer stores or visit their website: www.bobbibrown.com.au.
