Moon Glow

Bobbi Brown Moon Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, moderately dense powder consistency.

The powder applied well with feathery brushes as well as denser ones, and the product applied evenly to bare skin, blended out with little effort, and produced a strong sheen on my cheekbones that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Opal Glow

Bobbi Brown Opal Glow Highlighting Powder ($48.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, dusty pink with warm, multi-colored sparkle and pearl. The consistency felt more sparkly compared to other shades in the formula, as there were larger sparkle/shimmer particles throughout. It had medium, buildable coverage, both in terms of color as well as the intensity of the shine/shimmer. The consistency was dense and smooth, so there wasn’t any excess powder kicked up in the pan, but it was a cinch to pick up product with my brush. The powder applied evenly to my skin, diffused nicely, and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours.

Poison Ivy

Bobbi Brown Poison Ivy Luxe Eye Shadow ($38.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a dark green with warm, olive undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff applied dry or wet, though the dampened application yielded a brighter, more metallic finish. The eyeshadow felt smooth to the touch without any powderiness, which helped to apply nicely to bare skin and blend out without sheering out too readily. It wore well for nine hours on me.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.08 oz. - $475.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "applied dry for instant impact or applied with a damp brush for a liquid metal look" that "glides on and blends easily." The shades that I have tested have had good pigmentation both wet and dry with the dampened application yielding a smoother application and a stronger sheen. They could be used dry, but they adhered exceptionally well to bare skin when applied with a dampened brush. There was some fallout over time (seven to eight hours) when used dry and very minimal fallout over time when applied with a dampened brush.

It's a good formula overall, but the price point seemed skewed, even within the brand's formula (typically, eyeshadows are less expensive compared to the brand's lipsticks, and the Luxe Lip Colors are $37 so these are more expensive). I think if these were around $29, they would be (marginally) easier to justify, but at $38 for a single eyeshadow, that's a real commitment to a single shade.

Bare Pink

Bobbi Brown Bare Pink Luxe Lip Color ($37.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation, though it was shy of truly full coverage, that applied evenly but had a fair amount of slip. The added slip made it prone to slipping into my lip lines and made my lips appear more textured overall. This shade lasted for three and a half hours, but it was quite moisturizing at least.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.13 oz. - $284.62 Per Ounce

Best Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color  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.

Heat Ray

Bobbi Brown Heat Ray Luxe Eye Shadow ($38.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good pigmentation both wet and dry, though the dampened application yielded a stronger, foil-like shine and full coverage. The texture was soft, smooth, and not too loose or too firm in the compact, so it was easy to apply to the lid and blend it out. It wore well for eight hours with slight fallout when applied dry and minimal fallout when applied wet.

Bobbi Brown Plum Rose Luxe Lip Color ($37.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich plum with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, creamy, and lightweight without being too thin or too thick on the lips. It had excellent pigmentation that covered the lips evenly in a single layer. It wore well for five and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.
