Neiman Marcus Exclusive: Bobbi Brown Peony & Python Kit

Bobbi Brown Peony & Python Beauty Kit ($95.00) is an exclusive set available at Neiman Marcus this spring. It contains a peony and python printed zippered makeup bag, Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzer, Pink Lilac Brightening Gloss, Black Mauve Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, and two miniature-sized makeup brushes (face and lip).

  • Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzer is a medium-dark pink with gold micro-glitter and sheen; it is slightly cool-toned, though it seems to shift between cool and neutral depending on how the light hits it. It applies rather sheerly but can be intensified for a more obvious blush.
  • Pink Lilac Brightening Gloss is an ultra sheer gloss that really has a clear base with pink and gold shimmer. This shade is available individually.
  • Black Mauve Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner is a blackened burgundy brown. This shade is available individually.
  • Eye/Lip Brush is a miniature-sized brush with a glossy black cap that slips on and off. It’s not officially labeled, but it seems like a really narrow lip brush–not quite small enough to be a true eyeliner brush though it does seem to resemble the Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush a bit.
  • Face Brush is a fluffy, dome-shaped brush that resembles the Face Blender Brush. It seems wider and less tapered, though. It was soft against the skin.

The kit itself comes with a high price tag, but individually (though not all shades are available individually, the product type is), Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzer would retail for $33, Pink Lilac Brightening Gloss retails for $22, Black Mauve Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner is available for $21, and then assume $20 worth of brushes. The innards of the kit are worth approximately $96, but you also receive the printed makeup bag, too. There is a Peony & Python printed makeup bag available alone for $40, but I don’t know how the size compares to the one from the Neiman Marcus kit.

I think this is the first time I’ve actually liked anything snake print. Why oh why must you be so expensive? I just can’t justify it right now, but I am loving review so I can stare

Loving the eyeliner and since it is available on its own, I will definitely be checking it out! But for $95 this kit just doesn’t “wow” me. I find the lipgloss to be a bit underwhelming, I do however think the blush looks pretty… to bad that isn’t sold separately!

I think the blush is really pretty (though I don’t quite understand how something so pink could be called a “bronzer” – I mean, aren’t bronzers BRONZE?) – but I think the price is a bit steep and the colour doesn’t seem like it couldn’t be duped with any other bright pink.

I was drooling over this kit at BB counter last week. I like everything in it.

Unfortunately, the price tag was so high… *sigh*

Thx for the swatch!

I need this blush. It is soooo pretty. If bobbi brown sold it individually i’d be all over it. But truth the only thing i’d use from this kit is the blush and I can’t justify spending $95 for really just a blush.

I’m still not getting the “bronzer” thing… I mean, it’s quite clearly not really a bronzer… it isn’t any shade of bronze, and I thought that was the point of bronzer. Anyhow, it looks like a pretty good deal.

A viewer on YouTube explained how for some complexions, this actually will given them that sunkissed glow without turning them orange πŸ™‚

Exactly. I have a very hard time with bronzers, they all morph orange or muddy on me. But Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzers are wonderful. I use Antigua and love it to bits. I can use it as a blush, or a bronzer and it just looks great. And it has never morphed on me.

If you are near a Bobbi Brown Counter, play with them, and I bet you will find a shade that will work for you.

Antigua is amazing – I have Maui too, but I use it solely as a blush. They’re both incredibly gorgeous!

Pink Peony looks a little too cool for me though.

It throws me off to have it labeled as a “pink bronzer”.. it seems that pink bronzers have been more popular lately, but I have unsure how “bronze” they really are.

I bought it after reading the review of the muse. I love the peony bronzer which is so gorgeous. The tibi bag is cute as well. The other stuff that I love is the mauve shimmer gel eyeliner. Bobbi brown does very good gel eyeliner. I suck at applying eyeliner but with Bobbi shimmer eyeliner, it seems so easy, greats stuff really! The only downside would be the price for some. But I don’t count when I love something.
