Bobbi Brown's Nectar and Nude collection for spring/summer is one of the prettiest we've seen in a long while.

As demonstrated in the delectable title and campaign shot with face of the brand Katie Holmes, the range centres around wearable, warm shades of nude and peach.

As ever, Bobbi Brown excels when it comes to eyeshadow palettes. The Nectar and Nude one is particularly lovely, with six generous sized shades of pale cream, soft taupe, metallic golden bronze, metallic pink, matte brown and rich dark brown. The mix of matte, shimmer and sparkly finishes make this really versatile for creating a huge variety of looks.

Also finding favour daily is the Apricot Shimmer Brick, which contains five strips of shimmery powders which blend seamlessly together to leave a peachy glow on the skin. It is best used sparingly on the highpoints of the cheekbones to highlight and give skin a youthful look.

There's also a beautiful new shade of the Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks in Hibiscus (€26). This fabulous multi-purpose product has been formulated in a rich coral shade that imparts a sheer wash of colour to skin. The colour may look very bright in the pot, but it blends out seamlessly for a very natural, flushed finish.

Finally, there are three new gloss shades (€24) in shimmery Bare Peach, Nectar and Nude Pink, and polishes (€14) in Bare Peach Glitter and Nectar.

The Bobbi Brown Nectar and Nudes Collection is on counter now.
