Don't you just hate it when summer ends? Or when it's about to? The fact that rainy season starts too soon makes me kind of despondent. There's such few opportunities to wear those sun dresses and bright colors! And that goes with make-up too. I seem to be picking up more of my greys, blacks and dark shades as early as July. 

This year though, Bobbi Brown introduces a collection especially made for that confusing season between summer and autumn. Bobbi’s new Desert Twilight Collection combines soft hues with bright color, offering a pop of Southwestern inspired turquoise (definitely a summer shade!) against a backdrop of sun-swept rose, plum and bronze shades (usually for fall).

Again, Bobbi Brown proves she's best at creating handy compacts that you can easily slip in your purse. Here are my favorites from the collection:

Desert Twilight Eye Palette (P3,000.00)

This palette features eight shades of warm and cool eyeshadows and a dual sided brush for application. These are limited edition and comes in 4 compact sets, my favorite being the Navajo Twilight Pink Metallic. These shades are what I would usually opt for to achieve a fresh and radiant eye makeup look for my brides.

Bronzer/Blush Duo (P1,850.00)

The blush reminds me of NARS blush in Deep Throat while the bronzer reminds me of Tarte Mineral bronzer, with a little bit more of shimmer. With this duo, you can create a subtle glow that's naturally gorgeous and super sexy. I recommend this to morenas for a stunning, sun-kissed look.

Creamy Color for Lips and Cheeks (P1,100.00)

This fuss-free tube contains a dual-purpose formula that provides buildable color that blends flawlessly. Wear it alone for a muted flush of color or layer it with your favorite blush for richer depth. Feels creamy-yet-sheer on skin and makes transitioning from summer to fall a breeze thanks to two ultra-versatile shades, Honeyed Tea and Pink Truffle.

Nail Polish (P900.00)

Turquoise reminds me of my bottle of Dior Nirvana, only lighter and finishes in a creme opaque color. While Twilight Shimmer is a medium pearlized brownish plum shade with hints of silver shimmer and tiny specks of red and green. Formula was really nice, rather sheer on the first coat, it reached full opacity and a high shine with two.

Desert Twilight Mini Brush Set (P3,000.00)

This limited edition compact houses four essential brushes for eyes, lips and cheeks. It's perfect for on-the-go people like me! The bristles of the brushes are soft, as always with any Bobbi Brown brush. While I still prefer gold than silver in general, I absolutely adore how the turquiose lining complemented the dark chrome case. The case can even double as an iPhone case!

Available at Bobbi Brown counters in Rustan’s Makati (812-2507), Rustan’s Shangri-La (633-4636) and Essenses Rockwell (822-9400) as of August 2012.
