Bobbi Brown Face & Body Bronzing Duo

The Bobbi Brown Face & Body Bronzing Duo is a limited edition, part of the Nude Beach Collection for Summer 2013.
As soon as I saw pictures online I was immediately drawn to it; I liked the shades of brown and the lack of orangeness. In fact the side on the left is a pinkish brown and the side on the right is more of a reddish brown. 
Personally, I find that these nuances tend to resemble more of a natural tan. I also have another bronzer which is pretty brick/red looking - Daniel Sandler Watercolour Creme Bronzer in Fiji - and complement my skintone real nicely.
I twirl my brush on both sides but you can of course pick and choose; the lighter shade is matte and the darker has a slight glow to it.
By the way, I didn't realised how HUGE it was until I saw it at the counter! I actually really like it, it's still pretty compact ad slimline.
I still had a gift card from Christmas so, technically, I didn't pay for it but I'm glad I got it and I'm getting a lot of use out of it.

The lovely lady in House of Fraser also gave me a sample of the SPF 50 Protective Face Base, the new primer. I've only used it once but first impressions are good: feels really smoothing and lightweight on the skin. I'm pleased it has such an high spf, especially with summer approaching, and a little goes a long way so I bet that wee pot will last me a few months. :)
Have you bought anything from Bobbi Brown recently?
