Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder Maui Review

I raved Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder for you last week and I decided that since I already had added Antigua to my beauty arsenal it was about time I also hauled Maui.

So away I went to Nordies to nail myself thee most delightful shade of bronzer I ever did meet.

After testing out Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder in Antigua and getting a few emails telling me how I had to haul Maui too I gave in and headed to Nordies to purchase myself a compact. Ever so happy I did! Thanks to everyone who rec’ed it as it’s delightful. I had it in my head for a while that I also wanted Maui but after the many raves I knew for sure it would be special. A simple glance at the display had me nodding and telling the sale associate, “Yes, please, ring that one up!”

If anything at all Maui is actually even more flattering than Antigua as it’s such a pretty shimmery golden pink. I can’t say enough good things about these shades that Bobbi added to her bronzer collection. Truly pink it’s so universally flattering and as a bronzer it’s just idiot proof to apply. A quick buff with a kabuki and you’re left with sunkissed pink cheeks that give off such a pretty shimmer of color.

Maui is considerably truer pink than Antigua is. Where as Antigua sports a slightly dusky, dirty rose shade, Maui is more a truer pink with hints of golden shimmer. Granted, I think both are killer shades but I’m ever so happy I hauled Maui as I seem to adore it even more. These are the only two pinks in the collection and I believe Maui was released last year where as Antigua is the LE shade for this year. I’m hopeful next year we’ll have another version of pink to choose from.

Nothing makes bronzer feel user friendly like a delightful shade of pink!

Loving you Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder in Maui (and you too Antigua!).

Anyone own Maui?

How about Antigua?

Share it!

Sportin’ Maui!

    I too love Antigua – don’t leave the house without it on my cheeks! I want to try Maui too and, after reading your review, surely will (I’m beginning to see pan at the bottom of my compact). I’d love to try out the Antigua Palette as well. I can use a little more Navajo ; ) Have you tried Metallic Navajo yet? Long Wear? Gorgeous! It’s the one shadow I can count on to give my eyes that “awake” look and I always apply it first to my lids no matter what I’m wearing for the day.

    Do you know of any way to get the Antigua Palette other than Bloomingdales.com? They want a hefty $10 for shipping!

    Thanks for your reviews, dear. I always enjoy them!

      helen they are great aren’t they 😀 I’m going to have a review of the palette later this week it’s nice 😀 YES the metallic version is my BFF 😀 eep on the 10 buck shipping WTH? I dunno yet, can’t confirm, but perhaps we’ll see it from BB shortly 😀 aside from that bloomingdales sadly. You may wanna try calling the BB counter direct at Bloomies to see if they will ship free…sometimes they are nice enough to do so.

      My pleasure hun! thanks for the lovely comment!
