Bobbi Brown Telluride Highlighting Powder

Bobbi Brown Telluride Highlighting Powder
Bobbi Brown Telluride Highlighting Powder

Bobbi Brown Telluride Highlighting Powder ($46.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-drark rosy plum with warm undertones and a frosted finish. Lancome Rosegold Lights (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz (P, $46.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Rose Gold (LE, $46.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Afternoon Glow (LE, $46.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Tarte Muse (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Surratt Beauty De Cherubique (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). Laura Mercier Rosé (LE, $42.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). Laura Geller Pink Buttercream (P, $28.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” This is the third (and last!) shade that was released, and it seemed to be the most shimmery and deepest in color (this is likely to be more of a highlighting blush on very fair to medium skin tones but work particularly well as a highlighter on darker complexions). It had medium, buildable coverage paired with a soft, smooth, but denser, consistency that blended out effortlessly. I did not feel like this emphasized my pores, but I think it might if you feel like your pores are larger/more noticeable in general. The highlighter wore well for eight hours on my normal-to-dry skin.

Bobbi Brown Sunset Glow Highlighting Powder ($46.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warm undertones and a lighter, peachy gold shimmer-sheen finish. Tom Ford Beauty Cool (Winter 2016) Highlighter (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Starlight (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Rekindle (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Viseart Highlight #2 (P) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Streak Highlighter (P) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Lancome Rosegold Lights (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Looxi Beauty Goddess (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). bareMinerals The Five Star Treatment (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The texture was very soft and smooth, while it had a firmer feel to it overall, so it seems like a product that would take awhile to get through, but the firmness didn’t make it hard to apply or get color payoff out of the powder. It had medium, buildable coverage, which is in line with the brand’s description of the formula. Sunset Glow applied easily to the skin as it was quite blendable, while it wore well for eight hours before I noticed it fading along the edges.

It’s a new, limited edition highlighting powder designed to give “high-impact, buildable radiance.” The texture is dense, firm but not difficult to use, with a very smooth, finely-milled consistency that blends out effortlessly. It is a stronger highlighter, so if you prefer very subtle glow, it might not be the right product for you; it is possible to get a very, very light sheen, but it definitely lends itself to a more moderate sheen when applied with a medium-hand and typical highlighter brush. The highlighter had medium, buildable color coverage. It didn’t emphasize pores on me, and it added a little color to my skin tone (light-medium). The highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.

Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze Beach Shimmer Powder

Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze Beach Shimmer Powder

Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze Beach Shimmer Powder ($45.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with subtle grayish tones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. MAC Superb (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop The Golden Child (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bahama (LE, $38.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). By Terry Light & Tan Vibes #1 (LE) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s a new, limited edition formula/product for summer, which is supposed to give the “warmth and radiance of a natural tan.” It is heavily scented (and on purpose) with Bobbi Brown’s Beach scent, described as “notes of jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin.” There’s a lot of powderiness to the scent, which isn’t prevalent in the Beach fragrance I have from a few years ago. Unknown to me when I originally swatched it, the product is intended for decolletage, shoulders, and body, though for a body product, it is actually smaller than I would have expected–it is more in line with a typical face bronzer. The texture is firmer with a high amount of sparkle, so I can definitely see why it is more suitable to body bronzing than on the face. Nevertheless, it’s easier to show the result/coloring on the face, but rest assured I tested it on face and body, and once blended out, it doesn’t read nearly as sparkly as I anticipated–probably has to do with that stiffer texture. It blended out decently but could have been easier to work with. It lasted for eight hours before it started to fade, and if I had clothes that rubbed against the powder at all, it was much quicker to fade and isn’t transfer-proof at all.

The packaging might be the worst I’ve seen from Bobbi Brown; it is very, very thin, flimsy plastic–it felt more like the kind of temporary packaging you’d get when buying a refill pan or the like. There’s just no substance to it, and I was quite taken aback by it since it’s not an issue I’ve encountered with Bobbi Brown in the past.
