Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz

"Golden pinks look great on all skin tones. They're sophisticated - like a gorgeous pink quartz necklace." - Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown is reinventing holiday this season with the Pink Quartz Collection. Featuring a sparkling, high-shine array of golden pinks, this is a sophisticated and effortless way to go from day to evening.

Doesn't this model look stunning? So pretty yet not overly girly. Love it! I am quite partial to this collection and have the Shimmer Brick Compact. Bobbi Brown was a smart lady when she came up with this concept - they are so versatile.

Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick Compact
Five pretty, shimmery shades of pink, rose, beige and gold blend together to create a soft golden glow. Layer over blush as a highlighter on cheekbones or use individual shades as eye shadow.

Bobbi Brown 'Best of Chocolate' Eye & Lip Kit

Bobbi's popular Mini Brush Set has a new look this season to complement her Pink Quartz Collection. This limited-edition set features a pink-quartz soft faux-leather case filled with three Mini Brushes: Face Blender, Eye Shadow and Ultra Fine Eyeliner.
