Bobbi Brown Neons & Nudes Collection: Balance is an Art Form

I sampled the Lip Glosses ($23) from Bobbi Brown new Neon & Nudes collection last month and was surprised at how wearable they are. I have to admit I was put off by the rich, bright purple and orange hues at first (these are my lips we are talking about!). With names like Citrus, Cosmic Pink, and Ultra Violet, you’re […]
