Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze Beach Shimmer Powder

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. 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). MAC Superb (P, $33.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% 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.

Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve & Downtown Plum Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve Luxe Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve Luxe Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “light pinky mauve.” It’s a light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a natural sheen. The consistency was creamy, light-medium in weight, and glided on without tugging, but it wasn’t fully opaque and tended to accentuate lip lines.

Bobbi Brown Downtown Plum Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “neutral brown berry.” It’s a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a soft shine. It was richly pigmented with a really smooth, creamy consistency that applied beautifully to lips–even, lush color. The color wore well for almost six hours and was moisturizing while worn. Colour Pop Mosh Pit (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (95% similar). Make Up For Ever C108 (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to have one-stroke color coverage with a hydrating, smoothing formula, and “nourishing shine.” I was impressed with the formula as a whole, as the majority of the shades were very pigmented in one pass with a creamy consistency that glided on easily. There’s a richness to the texture that does feel more “luxe” in a way. The natural-to-luminous shine level gives lips a smoother, plumper look, while the formula itself is hydrating and many shades are longer-wearing. I noticed that the lighter shades tended to perform more poorly relative to more light-medium to medium-dark-hued shades. There was a faint floral scent (that was a surprise, I wish they had gone the unscented!), but I didn’t have issues with taste and found it very subtle on (it’s no Dior/Chanel-level scent!). In general, I like Bobbi Brown’s lipstick formulas, and this one feels creamier and more hydrating than others, but for pigmentation, you can’t go wrong with this or the Rich Lip Color formula.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to have one-stroke color coverage with a hydrating, smoothing formula, and “nourishing shine.” I was impressed with the formula as a whole, as the majority of the shades were very pigmented in one pass with a creamy consistency that glided on easily. There’s a richness to the texture that does feel more “luxe” in a way. The natural-to-luminous shine level gives lips a smoother, plumper look, while the formula itself is hydrating and many shades are longer-wearing. I noticed that the lighter shades tended to perform more poorly relative to more light-medium to medium-dark-hued shades. There was a faint floral scent (that was a surprise, I wish they had gone the unscented!), but I didn’t have issues with taste and found it very subtle on (it’s no Dior/Chanel-level scent!). In general, I like Bobbi Brown’s lipstick formulas, and this one feels creamier and more hydrating than others, but for pigmentation, you can’t go wrong with this or the Rich Lip Color formula.
