Get ready to boast some modelesque cheekies! For Fall 2012, Bobbi Brown introduces a Bronzer/Blush Duo that will make your face look anything but ordinary.

What the Nordstrom website has to say about the Bobbi Brown Bronzer/Blush Duo:


Blushed and bronzed, it's the best of both worlds, all in a sleek mirrored compact. Inspired by the look of skin bathed in afternoon light, the double-duty set creates a warm tawny glow.

On one side, the ultra-soft Illuminating Bronzing Powder in Pink Peony packs a blend of sheer powder and micro-pearls for a seamlessly glowing finish allover the face. The other side boasts the silky-smooth Shimmer Blush in Bahama Brown, the perfect way to add a pop of color to the apples of the cheeks.

I'm about to rock your world in a couple of ways. First, I bet you think you know which one is the bronzer. I'd also like to bet that you're wrong. The PINK side is labeled as the bronzer, and the brown side is labeled as the blush. I don't know if that is an ooopppsie or what's going on ... but what you're looking at is actually Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzing Powder and Bahama Brown Shimmer Blush. IKR?! My mind, it iz blown.

Mind blowing also factors in because of how pretty this duo is, and how seamlessly the shades work together. In the photo below, I'm wearing Bahama Brown as a contour with Pink Peony blended on the apples and into Bahama Brown. You can also wear either alone (depending on your tone) and layer them by swirling your brush in both shades before application.

Bahama Brown is the more pigmented of the two shades, so be careful with that one. You may find it hard to get a lot of color from Pink Peony. I REALLLYYY had to layer for the heavy swatch photo and to get any color on my cheeks. It's very luminous and will be flattering to a wide variety of skin tones.

Bobbi Brown Bronzer/Blush Duo retails for $36.00 and is available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, and Sephora. This bronzer/blush duo is limited edition.
