Product Lust: Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronze Collection

Not that one should be overheard quoting Rachel Zoe on a regular basis, but upon first seeing this collection I could only muster an emphatic "I die!"

Leave it to Bobbi Brown to bring the beach to you in the form of the incredible Illuminating Bronze Collection. Makeup mavens everywhere swear by Bobbi's Shimmer Bricks ($38) to add a soft and luminous glow and they regularly show up on "Best Of" lists. Not to be outdone, this collection contains a super-sized Shimmer Brick for Body ($75). It features three shimmering bars of color ready to highlight arms, legs, décolleté, or anywhere you want to show off. For application, Bobbi has created the All-Over Body Brush ($85) designed with ultra soft, luxurious bristles that not only make you feel pampered, but also provide flawless application of the finely-milled shimmer. Definitely not a combo for the price-conscious, but this would be an incredible splurge!

If those two are on the pricey side, try one of the Illuminating Bronzer Powders ($33). Specially formulated with micro pearls combined with a sheer powder, these beautiful bronzers are incredibly buildable, effectively creating that completely natural-looking flush. What makes these bronzers special is an ever-so-subtle dose of gold fleck that adds the "illuminating" aspect to the bronzer. And with six shades to compliment a wide variety of skin tones, there is sure to be one (or more) that is just perfect to create your sun-kissed blush. Seriously, how amazing are these colors?

  • Antigua -- light pink bronze (specifically designed as a bronzer for porcelain skin)
  • Aruba -- light golden bronze
  • Bahama -- deep golden bronze
  • Bali Brown -- golden bronze
  • Barbados -- warm deep bronze
  • Maui -- pink coral bronze
Lastly, Bobbi rounds out the collection by adding a new shade of All Over Bronzing Gel with SPF 15 ($28). Choose from two shades, Golden Sun and Desert Sun, to add a more uniform color enhancement to the complexion. Suitable for use all over the face, the best result is achieved by blending where the sun naturally hits - forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin. This innovative gel has the benefit of providing some sun protection and is not a self-tanner, so the color will wash off easily at night.

All in all, this is one seriously beautiful collection and it will undoubtedly please legions of women searching for that essential Summertime look. The Illuminating Bronze Collection is available now at all Bobbi Brown Counters and on
