A tradition in haute-couture, an enduring Icon of Love and certainly the only flower acceptable to throw on stage at the Met or clench between teeth in a Buenos Aires tango salon, the rose remains beyond reproach. M·A·C creates a very modern Rose Romance, our lovely new colour collection for the summer season. Spring buds blush in fragrant new hues when Just A Pinch Gel Blush debuts; Fix + Rose refreshes; and our bring-back favourite fragrance, Creations Hue: Dejarose, whispers anew… But with great beauty there is always pass ion and peril… mind the thorns!

My local Bobbi Brown counter already has the latest Summer 2009 Nautical Collection out so here’s a quick review and some swatches for you ladies =)

Sheer Color Cheek Tint ($22)
These are a *lot* tinier than I expected but so cute! They go on very smooth and leave behind a slightly wet finish. They also contain really fine shimmer which tends to show up more when the product dries up. My picks for the summer? Sheer Raspberry, Sheer Pink and Sheer Coral.



Sheer Color Lip Gloss ($20)
These look totally yummy in the tubes and remind me of MAC’s LipGelee but just as the name suggests, they are super sheer and will not give a lot of color.
