Today we’re taking a look at the Bobbi Brown summer collection: Nude Beach. Now that sounds hot and racy, right? This collection is all about sun-kissed shades for face and body. The products are made to be used without too much effort, just swipe on some colour and you are ready to go to the beach. Now when I think beach, I think sand, wind, a lot of sun. You want to look effortless, and the textures you choose are preferably not too tacky or sticky. The collection consist of lipglosses, a duo bronzer, cheek tints, shadow sticks, a nail polish and a sunless tanning gel. As you can already hear this is all about the skin. The look is barely there but we a good amount of bronzer and glowing skin!
I received one of the four Tube Tints. These are all limited edition. So what’s a Tube Tint? They are basically lip glosses in a tube. Tubes are very practical on the go, you squeeze out some product and swipe it over the lips, and there you go. No hassle with applicators that possibly can fall down in the sand (yes, this can totally happen!). These are meant to give the lips a slight tint and add shine. A tube holds 15 ml of product and goes for 19 dollar (I don’t have any info about the European price). The tube is pretty straight forward, it’s clear, you can see what shade it holds. The applicator is slanted and you have good control over the amount that you squeeze out. The Tube Tints are very lightly scented, you might not even notice it.
Air Kiss is a pale muted pink with a beige tint. There is no shimmer or glitter. It’s a very natural colour that is slightly pinker than your lips. When you look at the swatches you will see that it comes out as the colour in the tube. On the lips however it looks a lot more sheer. Air Kiss gives the lips a nice shine, it’s not overly glossy, the shine reminds me a bit of the Guerlain Gloss D’Enfer lipglosses. The texture is like a gel and the shine looks like that too. The formula feels a bit sticky, it clings to the lips in a good way. It’s thicker than most glosses I own and the good thing about that is that it has great staying power.
What I really love about the Tube Tints is the hydrating properties. My lips are actually happy when I wear these. I’ll honestly say that the Tube Tints are a really nice product but they are nothing ground breaking. They are easy and convenient, add moisture and shine, stay long and are very straight forward. I guess that is what Bobbi Brown had in mind with these. Easy, simple and good. If you are looking for a nice lip gloss in a tube that add a nice tint to the lips, this is for you. It’s great to take with you, whether it is the beach, a night out, a camping trip, you’ll always have a nice hydrated and shiny pout!
