This duo will create bronzed skin with a bit of shimmer. It’s naturally gorgeous and super-colorful (in a good way). The ultra-convenient compact houses both bronzer and blush to create a stunning, sun-kissed look with Bahama Brown Illuminating Bronzer and Pink Peony Shimmer Blush. See note below, please.
The strangest thing is that they are labeled in the opposite way on the compact. There, it says the brown shade is the blush, and the pink shade is the bronzer. That's a big oops. Even the Nordstrom Web site has the names switched. How could the pink shade be the bronzer? No matter, we all know how to use luscious colors.
Bahama Brown Illuminating Bronzer could not be more beautiful. It is a clear brown with just a hint of pink (look carefully). The hue will keep it from being muddy on any skin tone, providing a natural bronze shade that will serve to bronze, contour, or even blush the skin, depending on your skin tone.
I've got much more to show you. Bobbi Brown cooked up exquisite colors for early fall. From the Desert Twilight Eye Palette to the Creamy Colors for Lips and Cheeks (in cute little tubes), the colors in this collection are stunning. Wait 'till you see the Nail Polish shades! I haven't purchased them yet, but I'll be ordering more when Bobbi Brown puts the collection up on her Web site next week. I'll show you everything I purchased before that.
Note: I checked with Bobbi Brown and was told that the compact is correct. They consider the brown shade the blush and the pink peony shade the bronzer. That makes my feature even more confusing, but I still contend you know where to use the shades - anywhere they look good on you!
Update 6/21: Read the comments. Bless her heart, Gina has pulled out her BB shades and put the name confusion to rest!
