Bobbi Brown Summer 2013 Collection - Nude Beach

The past two days, we talked about some of my new favorites in all the products that I have purchased in this past few weeks and today we are going to return to the summer collections so that I can keep planning my summer makeup shopping.  Bobbi Brown is a makeup line that I have recently been obsessed with and I am very happy to see that their newest collection for the summer months has been released.  These limited edition collections sell out almost instantly at the counter near me and sell out very quickly at Sephora also, I have learned the hard way that I have to watch for the release of the limited edition collections and then order the products as quickly as I can from the website or from Sephora, by the time that the goodies hit the counter, there is usually very little left to choose from.  Time to start working on my next Sephora order...

Every year, Bobbi Brown puts out a beach-inspired collection, it is often one of her best selling collections and always a favorite of mine.  I am very much looking forward to visiting the beach a few times this summer and I love any type of product that reminds of swimming in the ocean and playing in the sand.  From Bobbi Brown herself, "The beach has always been my happy place.  I love the relaxed vibe, less-is-more attitude and the beachy, bronzy glow on people's faces.  The Nude Beach collection is a no-brainer way to create that look.  It's relaxed, easy, and gorgeous - what summer beauty is all about."  I already see a very pretty duo bronzer in this collection and a few lip glosses that I would be very happy to own!

Here is the Nude Beach collection from Bobbi Brown!

Face and Body Bronzing Duo - Bobbi's cult classic bronzer goes double-duty for face and body so you get a true all-over glow. Use each shade separately or blended together - the generous compact makes it easy to sweep bronzer over the face, neck, d├ęcolletage and arms. Simply use our Bronzer Brush or Face Brush to create a sun-kissed, natural-looking tan whether you're headed to the beach (or want to look like you just came from one).  This bronzer duo comes in a light-medium tan and medium-deep tan.

Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick - Effortless and high impact-that's the essence of NEW Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick. This do-it-all formula glides on tug-free and can be used to shade, define, smoke up and highlight eyes. In subtle to eye-popping shades that last for up to 8 hours without creasing, flaking or fading, it's a stroke of genius. Just swipe on and go.
- Sunlight Gold - gold beige
- Golden Bronze-  deep bronze sugar

Sheer Color Cheek Tint - Our beloved blush formula is back with a newly designed, more luxurious look. Featuring the same easy twist-up application, this sheer, tinted formula glides on smooth and blends in beautifully for a failproof flush of natural looking color on cheeks every time.
- Nude Beach - golden pink bronze
- Summer Pink - sheer bright pink
- Sunlit Nude - golden pearl pink

Tube Tint - We brought back our most popular shades from past collections for these pretty, hint-of-color glosses. Four limited edition shades in easy-to-use tubes give lips a sheer, beachy tint - wear them solo or over your favorite lipstick-without ever feeling heavy. Ideal for warm weather beauty.
- Bronzed Pink - golden bronze pink
- Naked - nude brown
- Pink Cloud - bright light pink

Shimmer Nail Polish - Dress up nails with long-lasting shimmer (it's Bobbi's favorite way to accessorize hands and toes). Pearlescent color casts nails in the starring role with a range of chic, shimmering shades.
- Pink Pearl - shimmering pink

Sunless Tanning Gel for Face and Body - Bikinis optional: Get a natural-looking tan (that lasts) without spending any time in the sun. Our lightweight, gel formula delivers warm, healthy-looking, buildable color so you can decide how "deep" you want your sun-kissed glow to go. Can be used on both the face and body. This oil-free formula is non-acnegenic and dermatologist-tested too.
Beach EDT - It's the same scent, but with a new look - Bobbi's best-selling fragrance gets an update in a sleek bottle. Designed with a lightly intoxicating blend of sand jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin, Beach captures the atmosphere and attitude of summer. This eau de parfum is wearable anytime, anywhere.
I love this collection, this might be one of my favorites of the entire season!  I think that this is the first collection all season that I have wanted every single product from and would have a hard time choosing my top choices.  I want products for my eyes, lips, cheeks, and the fragrance from this collection.  I have coveted this fragrance for a few summer seasons now but it somehow always takes a back burner when I visit Sephora, it is online only and I tend to purchase more fragrances in the store than any other item.  I will have to clear a spot on my dresser for this fragrance as this is one of the best fragrances for the warm weather.  That will not be easy but I will try to get it accomplished by Memorial Day.

I love the new shades of the Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick, I love the lighter gold shade the most but I would like to own both of them as I tend to use more cream eye shadows in the summer and both shades will be very flattering for my eye and skin color.  The lighter shade will go right onto my Most Wanted list for June.  The other item that is going right onto my Most Wanted list is the Sheer Cheek Color Tint is the pink shade, Summer Pink.  This bright pink will be another perfect shade for me and I must have this product.  I also must have the Tube Tint in the bright pink shade too, Pink Cloud is a great sheer pink lip gloss and I want to add this to my already huge pink lip gloss collection.  The Shimmer Nail Polish shade is very pretty, I would like to have it as I will wear it all the time but it's not a must have since I have a shade very close to this from China Glaze already.  I also wouldn't mind trying the formula of self tanner that is from this company too, I love my Bath and Body Works self tanner but it wouldn't kill me to have a couple formulas to choose from if it is ever discontinued or sold out.  My current back ups are Clarins and St. Tropez, however both of these formulas tend to sell out very quickly at Sephora so I would love to have at least five formulas that I can trust and find pretty easily (without having to stoop to the horrid formulas that I have tried at CVS). 

It goes without saying that I must try the bronzer out from this collection, my search for another brozner is still continuing and this one looks like a great choice.  I just love this collection and every product in this collection is perfect for me and the look that I am craving for the summer months!
