The forthcoming Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powders are so pretty! Two of the oblongs in each shade palette are twinkles of gold, pink and silver – ridiculously pretty, if you like to sparkle. However, I did notice after swatching that the initial sparkle disipates so I don’t know if the palettes have had an overspray for the shimmer – as you work your way into the palette the sparkle is less.
I think we’re down to nuance and personal preference here – my information states that it’s a sheer finishing powder that lifts and brightens the complexion that can be worn on bare skin or over make up for naturally glowing skin. I think that’s rather optimistic.
On my skin, the Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powders turned out to be no different to a normal powder when I swirled my brush around the whole palette. You can, with difficulty, pick out certain shades but I think you really have to view these as just very beautiful, slightly tone warming powders.
I genuinely didn’t notice any ‘lifting’ or ‘brightening’ at all. Nonetheless, if you love that minute attention to detail with your skin there is all the pleasure in the look of the Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Illuminating Powders – just don’t expect a miracle! The powders are £39 each and launch next month. On my arm, from bottom to top are: Porcelain, Golden, Buff and Nude.
