Look, we like when we play muse. It suits Miami well, and we aren't surprised when creatives take our shores as inspiration. So for Bobbi Brown's summery collection, the famed cosmetics brand turned to us for their summer '12 offerings, sending forth a beautiful, sun-kissed selection of shadows, shine, and fragrance. With a heavy helping of coral and plenty of gold-tinged additions, the lipsticks, eye creams, and a revamped "Beach" fragrance, Bobbi Brown explains that, "This collection recreates the fresh, glowing look you get at the beach." (Well, Bobbi means the glow most get at the beach, your author is prone to look more like a crustacean after a day on the sand.)
New shades include different types of gold, like the lighter Candlelight and a metallic Copper. Lip shines are pretty safely in the pink family, even if Peach Sorbet has a tinge of orange, and the line has a couple of limited edition finds like the cheek glow. Check out the Miami Collection (yep it's named after our city) for yourself, and let us know: Did Bobbi Brown nail the city's golden glow?
