Bobbi Brown Sandy Nudes Collection: Face & Body Bronzing Duo - Bermuda & Antigua

The recent Sandy Nude Collection featured four Face & Body Bronzing Duos. Two of them verge more towards highlighter/blushes rather than bronzers, Ibiza & Tahiti and the one I bought, Bermuda & Antigua (£34).

Now this is a large product, in the mirrored compact you get 0.74 oz/21g of product and the size is similar to my Tom Ford bronzer as shown below (full sized, not the smaller version released).

Bermuda is a baby pink and Antigua is a bronzey pink. There is some sparkle in Bermuda, I initially thought it might just be the top layer but after multiply uses its still there. Though I would prefer no sparkle, its only noticeable if I look at my face close up.

The shades feel quite smooth, albeit on the dry side. Both shades have good pigment and layer well with one another. The application is not as faultless as my Suqqu or By Terry blushers so I do have to work the product in well otherwise it can look patchy.  As for wear time I get fading after around 5 hours so I don't consider this to last above average.

Although I bought this as soon as it was released I've been waiting to review it as when I looked at the ingredients I was irked that it contains many things that I would normally avoid for my sensitive, acne prone skin (the pit fall of buying online with brands that don't list their ingredients). Though this has not caused me breakouts it does make my skin feel a bit itchy, so worth bearing in mind for those with sensitive skin.


Overall whilst I'm not enamoured with this, I am enjoying the finished look, I like that you can custom blend the colour to your preference and I find the shades provide an illuminating somewhat sun kissed healthy pink.

  1. Hey Clare, thanks for the review! So sorry to hear this causes your skin to itch! That's not good :( I love how the shades look on you tho. I initially thought the darker shade could pull too warm, but it actually doesn't!

    1. Thanks :) Its a really nice set of shades, so annoying about the itchiness, wonder if its caused by the Bismuth Oxychloride.
