I guess there is a remote possibility that there might be someone out there without a nude palette! If that’s you, the re-issue of the Nude on Nude palette in March, is definitely worth taking a look at. Bobbi Brown was doing nudes before many brands were even born and this is an archive palette brought back to life from 2003. With so many nude palettes around, it’s hard to find a point of difference, but I do find the Nude on Nude palette richer in tone than many.
Where Bobbi Brown nude collections differ from others is her use of pink. There is almost always one or more accompanying pink tones within a collection and think can amplify a nude look and make it more vibrant. The Blush Duo above is one of four limited edition duos.
The shade I have above is Tawny/Peony which means you can go bronze-ish or baby pink OR a combination of the two.
I’ve swatched the blush duo above next to a new shade of Art Stick (this is Rich Nude). It’s a matte finish, but feels creamier than I was expecting for a stick-lip product. On me, it’s completely unflattering but you’re supposed to select your perfect nude by going as close to your natural lip colour as possible. This is too orangey for my lips. I’ll stick to my Bobbi glosses!

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
It’s worth noting that the Nude on Nude is completely matte – you won’t find a speck of shimmer in this. I did find that it is a bit dusty but you do get a rich colour (in as far as nude can be) that does disappear.
The Bobbi Brown Malibu Nudes Collection launches in March. Prices are: Palette £36, Art Stick £20 and Blush Duo £29.50.
