Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Face & Body Bronzing Duo Summer 2013

Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Face & Body Bronzing Duo ($42) is one of the few bronzers that isn’t brown or orange. The Nude Beach Face & Body Bronzing Duo recently launched with the Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Summer 2013 Collection and will be available for a limited time.

Do suggest grabbing it up as it is stunning little piece of Summer makeup that will make any sun goddess happy!

Take a peek!

The Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Face & Body Bronzing Duo consists of a bronzer and blush that can be worn together if you’re feel cheeky or separately to create a variety of looks. Where as many bronzers rely on an orange, tan, or matte brown shade Bobbi’s bronzer is more of a dusky dessert rose with reddish tones.

The formula runs a bit powdery so it does kick up a bit of dusk as your swirl a kabuki or powder brush into it. But the texture still remains very smooth and silky. I think it takes a little know how to get it on just right as it blends somewhat blotchy at first so use a little bit and build slowly for the best finish. I felt like either of the two shades worked great as at lending a warm flush to cheeks but not the typical tanned look from a regular bronzer. The blush which makes up half of the palette is a matte shade with excellent pigmentation. The bronzer seemed sheerer to me and more difficult to blend but still worked best when I slowly built the color and blended out and built when necessary.

It’s the type of bronzer that takes things outside the standard and that in itself makes it an unique pick!

It’s available now at Bobbi Brown counters or head over to bobbibrown.com to explore this and the Nude Beach Collection.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hi! By any chance do you know where I could find this pallet? It’s my mom’s favorite and I can’t find it anywhere and I bought one thinking it was that one for $100 and it was wrong. It would make her life if you knew where I could find one! Thank you so much!

      Hi Emily. Perhaps ebay? This was launched quite a while ago and is no longer available sadly.

      • Emily

        Thank you for your advice! Sadly I thought I found it there and I got ripped off.. but thank you again!

          I’m sorry Emily that sucks! Your best bet is wait until the middle of May or so as they’ll start launching their Summer Collection and typically they do a bronzer or a selection of bronzers 🙂 maybe something will be similiar in there that your mom might like!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
