This month a gorgeous, spring-inspired collection is hitting Bobbi Brown counters nationwide, entitled the Lilac Rose collection. It is everything I love about a Spring makeup launch - I'm a huge fan of dusty pinks, pastels and lilacs and this collection embodies all of those shades, making it a seriously pretty sight to behold. 

I was lucky enough to be sent a little selection from the new range, and I couldn't help but swoon over the pretty pinks, heather greys and lilies that encompass this collection. Although I'm not the biggest lipgloss lover, I have to say I'm suitably impressed with these shades. I tend to find lipgloss far too sheer and sticky, and whilst these are, indeed, of the sticky variety, the colour pay-off is pretty impressive. Out of the two, I have to say Pink Lily is my favourite; it is the perfect bright-yet-subtle pink. Lilac Rose is also lovely, although slightly darker and less in-your-face as Pink Lily. And you know me, I love an in-your-face lip colour! The nail polish took a few coats to get right, but is a really pretty pale heather pinky grey. It's perfect for nude nail lovers - however I'm not personally a fan as I love me some colourful talons! Each to their own however!

My favourite thing from the selection I was sent HAS to be the eyeshadow. I think I'm actually in love with this little beauty - it's a stunning, shimmery lilac that glides on beautifully and is seriously creamy. It almost has an iridescent shimmer to it, and unlike some lilac eyeshadows it is easy to wear day or night, as it gives more of a pretty, shimmery sheen as opposed to a full-on, solid colour. It's long lasting too - no creases in sight! I've been loving wearing it recently and I can't wait for it to get a little more spring-like so I can fully embrace this gorgeous new collection.

The majority of the collection is limited edition - so get in there quick. The lipglosses retail at £17.00 each, the nail polish is £11.00 and the eyeshadow £20.00. Have you tried anything from Bobbi Brown's Lilac Rose Collection? What did you think?
