Not just any kind of ‘hot nude’ will do, mind you. And I am all about Bobbi Brown’s new Hot collection (collaboration with Kate Upton)!


I was instantly swept away with these incredibly wearable, gorgeous palettes.

The Pink Cheek Palette ($45 USD) comes with three shades to fit your mood, two powdery mattes (Pale Pink, Powder Pink) and one highlight (Pink). As with all Bobbi Brown blushes, these leave you looking fresh, and perfectly rosy.

The Hot Nudes Palette ($65 USD) is perfection for anyone who likes to keep things naturally beautiful. This is hands down, my favorite eyeshadow palette to-date. The pièce de résistance is Peach Sugar; it warms up any other shade, and looks absolutely stunning worn by itself.

I’ve seen quite a bit of commentary in the past about reviewers disliking the (‘lack of’) color payoff from Bobbi Brown eyeshadows in various palettes, but I found these all to be quite good. All of the lighter shades are more on the sheer side (which I like), but Smoke and Blackest Brown are quite intense, and add a lot of drama to any eye look.

I have worn these every day since receiving them—I don’t even think to reach for anything else. You need these in your life.

All items from the Hot Collection are available for purchase at Sephora, Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s.
