Two of my favorite products in the world happen to be Bobbi Browns bronzing powders and blushesso I was so excited to see these gorgeous Bobbi Brown Bronzer/Blush Duo ($36 USD / $33 CAD) pop up in the recent Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight Collection for Fall 2012.
The entire collection really emphasizes beautiful sun-swept nudes and rosy bronze tones. This compact, which is the size of Bobbis regular bronzing powders, contains two products to get that gorgeous, late-summer glow this fall.
I have to start off by saying I was quite confused to first read the label; Im not sure if it is a mistake or if Im just not getting it but the label states the compact contains Bahama Brown Shimmer Blush, and Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzer. When you think about it, the brown shade should be the illuminating bronzer, and the pink shade should be the blush. So for this review Im going to be referring to the bronzer as Bahama Brown and the blush as Pink Peony. If that is a mistake, I apologize (Im waiting to hear back from Bobbi Brown for the official word), but lets just go with common sense.
Bahama Brown is a really beautiful rosy bronze shade; it reminds me of Benefit Dallas, with that pink undertone. It gives a very unique bronzed look- one that I love very much. Its that warmth you get from being in the sun bronze, with a hint of pink. Its definitely not the bronzer to use to contour, especially because it also has shimmer in it, but sweep it over the high points of your face for a stunning end-of-summer glow.
Pink Peony is a beautiful pop of bright pink. Used in combination with the bronzer, this shade gives such a gorgeous healthy glow to the complexion! Ive always been a fan of Bobbis blushes, and even if it looks really bright and intimidating in the pan, using it lightly and building until you get that desired flush is really easy.
My only real gripe about the compact is that I wish one of the two shades wasnt shimmery. Yes, we want an illuminating glow, but I hardly ever where a shimmery bronzer and shimmery blush at once Its similar to not wearing shimmer all over the lid (I like mixing shimmers and mattes); I just find its more flattering. Id much prefer to see a matte bronzer with a shimmer blush in this compact.
Whether youre saving room in your makeup bag, trying out two products for the price of one or need a great multi-tasking compact for traveling, this one has my (glossy) kiss of approval!
