Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronze Collection

Like a Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, I become restless during the summer in search of a perfect shimmer bronze shade. I may have found the cat’s meow in Bobbi Brown’s new Illuminating Bronze Collection, which has a splendid shimmer brick for the body:

Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronze Collection

Shimmer Brick for the Body

This lightweight, feathery silky powder is all you need in your purse for a Twilight Zone – esque glow. $75.

Another one of my favorites is the Illuminating Bronze Powder:

This is a pressed powder with sheer micro pearls. $33.

There’s also an all over Bronzing Gel SPF 15 ($28), and an all over Body Brush (shown with shimmer brick, above) that is soft and as luxurious as a cashmere goat ($85 — for the brush, not the goat).
