Bobbi Brown Summer 2017 Illuminating Bronzing Powder

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Take a gander at the new Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer Powder for Summer 2017. These limited-edition pearl-infused pressed powders give a soft kiss of color and warmth to skin with a shimmering finish. Most people might already own these as they are available as permanent fixtures in Bobbi’s makeup collection but for Summer 2017 they get a packaging revamp. As you can see the new packaging has a Bobbi Brown emblem embossment on the powder and the normal flat compact is a chunkier one.

These are actually a great way to experiment with adding a touch of warm luminous color to face and cheeks without fully embracing bronzer mode. I already have Maui and Antigua in the original packaging but Santa Barbara is tempting me!

The limited-edition packaging is available in the following shades:

  • Maui
  • Antigua
  • Santa Barbara

You get them now at Nordstrom.com.

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. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Maybe I misunderstood Bobbi Brown leaving; I thought that meant it would be discontinued like Sonia Kashuk but I guess not?

      she just steps down but the brand is still active, alive, and well 🙂

      • Jane Spring

        I’m confused…these totally look like full on blushes and not bronzers? :\

        • Isabella Muse

          Bobbi’s always named them bronzers shrug…! They actually add a touch of sheerer color and warmth to cheeks. It’s kind of a hybrid finish 😀

      It’s a massively successful brand owned by Estee Lauder group (since 1995) – it isn’t going anywhere!!

    I love that peachy shade and they do look more like blushes to me too.

    Ooooh! I got the Antigua when it was embossed with BE BOLD in 2014. There is only a bare rim around the pan left so I might repurchase or I might go for Santa Barbara…………

    Much prefer the look of these over the 3 pan blush/bronzer,highlight palettes as part of the Havana Brights collection.

    Have you seen the eye glosses due out in a few days (4 May in the UK)? I am intrigued and v tempted to try them but not seen much about them other than couple of instagram posts.

      I remember that! I think I even have it still haha 😀 I agree, those are very nice trios! I did!!!!!!!! I think that we’ll see a lot of eye glosses for Summer! Curious about Bobbi’s formula 😀
