Tawny Glow

Bobbi Brown Tawny Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was richly pigmented with a finish that was noticeable but still more moderate than full-on metallic.

The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The finish was about the same whether I wore it with semi-sheer coverage or more opaque coverage, though if I applied the barest amount, then maybe I could see something subtle about the luminosity on my skin. The powder had a smooth, soft consistency–softer than a lot of similar formulations, where they can feel a smidgen dry to the touch, though they look lovely on!–that was easy to apply, blend out, and use on the skin. I found that the rosy tone of this came through more as I applied and blended out the product in practice than initially swatched. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading slightly.

Sunrise Glow

Bobbi Brown Sunrise Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium pink with cooler undertones and warmer pink and gold shimmer along with faint gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without trouble.

The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The finish was frosted to metallic with slight sparkle particles visible on the skin, but the more I buffed and blended the powder on my cheeks, the less I saw. It added a smidgen of noticeable color to my skin tone, but it may work more as a highlighting blush on lighter skin tones. The texture was soft, smooth, and not too dense nor so soft that it became powdery in the pan. The highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours on m e before fading.

Bobbi Brown Sunkissed Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, golden bronze with warmer undertones and gold pearl and shimmer. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin.

The formula is designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” I would better describe it as a moderate to metallic highlighter with a consistency that was soft and forgiving enough to be used with a light hand for less impact but a moderate hand and typical highlighter brush yielded a strong sheen. The finish was highly reflective but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Island

Bobbi Brown Island Glow Stick ($36.00 for 0.31 oz.) is medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a dewy finish on the skin, as the formula never dried down. While the finish was always luminous, it had terrible wear–on its own, it had slid around noticeably on my skin after four hours of wear. When I tried it over my liquid foundation, it moved my base around a ton and created a lot of patchiness within two hours of wear. It had sheer coverage, and the pearl in this particular shade made it look spectacular but just required so much maintenance, care, and touch-ups.

It’s supposed to be a “creamy, lightweight highlighter” with “sheer” coverage that gives “an instant, sun-kissed glow that lasts all day.” The formula was very emollient with a lot of slip and wetness; it never dried down and always felt slick on the skin. All of the shades I tried were sheer, and they were not buildable, so several shades ended up looking very similar on my skin tone (but may look more or less different on other skin tones/undertones). The emollient feel of the formula did not play well with products (primers, cream/powder/liquid foundations or blushes).

Antigua

Bobbi Brown Antigua Illuminating Bronzing Powder ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a more “neutral” vibe, as it did not appear strongly yellow and wasn’t bright like a really cool, more cotton candy-like pink or a richer pinky-coral shade. The color did appear much darker swatched (both on my arm as well as my cheeks) than it appeared in the compact. The consistency was smooth, blendable, and slightly firmer in feel in the pan, but it did not feel dry nor was it stiff to work with. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and lasted for eight and a half hours on my skin.

The Illuminating Bronzing Powder is part of the brand’s permanent line-up but for summer, they re-released three shades with embossing but the actual product and shades can be purchased year-round (the range has six shades, and the other three shades appear browner, like you might expect in a bronzer). The formula is described as an “ultra soft and smooth pressed powder that delivers a shimmering, sun-kissed glow.” All three of the re-released shades had a smooth consistency–firmer in the pan but not dry or stiff to work with–that was incredibly blendable on the skin. They were very pigmented with moderate to strong luminosity.

Bobbi Brown Maui Illuminating Bronzing Powder ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a bright pop of medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and fine, golden shimmer. It had opaque pigmentation that was easily diffused (or used with a lighter hand) for sheerer coverage. The consistency was smooth, firm but not stiff, and easy to pick up with a brush and blend out on the skin. There was a noticeable sheen that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.
