Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Face & Body Bronzing Duo ($42.00 for 0.60 oz.) consists of a bronzer and blush that can be used individually or blended together.  It’s not your typical bronzer, because it’s not an orange/tan-based one, and those who tend to prefer slightly reddish tones to their blush/bronzer in the summer may like the shades included in this duo.  I wasn’t keen on the texture and blendability of the bronzer, unfortunately, as it was difficult to get it to look even and smooth on the skin.  Both shades wore well for seven and a half hours, and after eight hours, I noticed some slight fading along the edges.

Nude Beach Blush is a dirty, reddish-plum with a matte finish. It had good color intensity, and the texture was soft, finely-milled, and fairly easy to blend out on the cheeks. NARS Seduction is bolder, darker, redder. NARS Lovejoy is similar in color but has more shimmer. bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal is slightly cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Nude Beach Bronzer is a dirty, plummy-brown with subtle warm undertones and a satiny sheen. This shade was sheerer, though still somewhat buildable. I had similar issues with blending, though, where it was difficult to soften or diffuse the edges of the color. It looked somewhat splotchy applied as a result. MAC Stylish Me is warmer, lighter. MAC Earthshine is darker, browner. See comparison swatches.

It really suits you Christine! What a pretty shade of bronzer. I know I don’t need anymore but this might just be on my wishlist anyway. Perfect every day bronze.

I really wanted this. I went to the Bobbi Brown counter and it was sold out. I’m afraid to buy it on the website in case I don’t like it. I don’t want to pay for return shipping. Oh well, I guess I won’t get it.

Oh no..the swatches look so horrible! Sad because I very much like this style of blush/bronzer. Orangey/Yellowy bronzers are not for me. This puts me slightly in mind of Benefit Dallas which I have and it blends perfectly. A pass therefore on this product.. the swatches make it easier to say no.

Yikes, I almost bought this. Glad I saw this review first. Actually, the shades in here remind me quite a bit of the ELF Blush/Bronzer duo in Turks and Caicos (which have a lovely formula), so I think I’ll stick with that.

Despite the poor review, it does look very well on you. I need non orangey bronzers. I loved Bobbi Brown’s duo from the Desert Twighlight collection from last fall. It also does not go on as smoothly as I would like, but the color is so perfect for me that i put up with it. I wish that Bahama Brown color had a dupe! I was hoping this duo would be similar, but it doesn’t look that way.

I love this duo! My natural color when I get tan is a bronzy red, and this is the first bronzer that mimics that on my complexion.
I find the intensity and application easy to use and blend, seems like it was made just for me!
