We have an awesome new collection available from American professional makeup artist and founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown. You may have perused through one of her eight books on makeup and beauty or ready her articles in Health Magazine, where she is a Contributing Beauty & Lifestyle Editor. No matter how you know her, you will be very happy to note that she has a grand new collection that is perfect for the beach this summer, called the Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes summer 2015 makeup collection. It is one, which has slowly been unveiled over the last month, appearing piece by piece in the available section and popping up in different department stores. Here, you know that you can find a few of the pieces but never all at once. While one store may feature the Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes Eye Palette, another might not carry that one at all and instead offer you two new Face & Body Bronzing Duos.
To date, the whole Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes summer 2015 makeup collection doesn’t seem to appear all in one place at the same time, which can get rather frustrating for us women who are always on the go. Yet, there is something about the pieces available that are positively captivating. We are made to think of the pink sands of Bermuda, alongside the black versions found in Hawaii. Every beach has its own distinctive hue really, which is what makes the Sandy Nudes line so very appealing. There is such warmth that emanates from the colors used within this cosmetic line-up, with options available for the eyes and the face, the lips and the nails, all of them designed with blending and layering in mind, an effortless application of easy summer beauty. Currently one can find pieces from the collection at Nordstrom, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s in the United States, while the Japanese launch was but less than two weeks ago on April 1, 2015.
The collection is comprised of:
Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes Face & Body Bronzing Duo ($48.00)
There are two shades available here, one a little more on the darker side that reminds us of dusty roses, while either has a bit more of an ethereal finish to it. No matter which route you choose to take, you cannot go wrong with the Bobbi Brown collector’s items when it comes to bronzing options. They just blend into your skin to perfection so that you never can really tell that the powder is there. The best part is that this is a piece that is here to stay!
• Antigua / Golden Light
• Telluride / Elvis Duran
Bobbi Brown Shimmering Sands Eye Palette ($70.00) (Limited Edition)
So many different sand colors! There are 12 hues that are packed into a single pack, comprised of flattering nude shadows in a range of textures. The Bobbi Brown Shimmering Sands Eye Palette makes for subtle but sultry eyes and a gorgeous finish to any outfit that brings with it all that summer entails. It is a silky powder that is applied in a smooth manner and blends perfectly so that you never see another crease again, nor a flake or have it fade. The compact case includes a large mirror as well as a shadow and liner brush with double ends to ensure perfection no matter where you are.

Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes Lip Color Shimmer Finish ($26.00)
Available in three colors, the lip shimmers are exceptionally beautiful and glide onto your lips for a graceful, playful and flirty look that is all shades of summer and totally in sync with the barely there trends. Your pout never looked so incredibly alluring as it will when you apply any of these three shades to it, making your lips the most enticing part of your body with a simple shimmery application from a simple but well created lipstick tube.
• Pink Gold Shimmer
• Beige Gold Shimmer
• Brown Shimmer
Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes Lip Gloss ($25.00)
We get to keep the latest lip gloss available within the Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes summer 2015 makeup line, one that adds shine with barely a hint of color for added effect overall. We’re just unhappy it comes in a single shade only as glossy looks are totally in. We may have liked to see a bit more in pink as well, though nudes are huge this year and Bobbi Brown knows exactly what she’s doing when creating the perfect summer lip look. You can always layer this over matte lipstick as well for an especially lovely pout.
• Almost Nude
Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes Nail Polish ($15.00)
There are two awesome nail lacquer hues that are now available for good as well. We cannot help but covet the barely there hues that are all the rage of the 2015 runway shows during the ready-to-wear Fashion Weeks that have taken place in New York, Milan, London and Paris, showing off the latest in looks that are in style for the spring/summer and fall/winter seasons. Plus, these polishes can be used to create awesome negative space nail art which will be one of the biggest nail trends come the fall, though it is still something to spend your free time working on during the spring and summer seasons as well. After all, no one can say no to nail art these days, particularly when they look as incredible as a contrasting combination of nude and dark can be.
Bobbi Brown Face Mist ($32.00)
The face mist is a spray that adds to the hydration of the skin, refreshes and soothes, giving the visage a healthy glow. You can wear with on its own or over makeup, anytime you need that extra pick-me-up with its light and nutrient rich formula. Considering the rest of the prices within the collection, the $32 spend on a super face mist is worth every last penny put into it.
