October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I’m so happy with what beauty companies are doing to raise awareness for this great cause. This year, Bobbi Brown continues to empower women and is supporting the efforts of the campaign with the Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzing Powder Set, which includes a rosy pink shade of Illuminating Bronzing Powder and a mini, pink Face Blender brush.
In support of The Estee Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign, Bobbi Brown will donate A$16 from the purchase price of the Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzing Powder Set to the National Breast Cancer Foundation! (In the States, US$11 is donated to BCRF).
Check out my review and swatches of the powder below.

The color is a gorgeous rosy pink with shimmering gold sparkles. The shimmers aren’t subtle, but they’re not over-the-top either.
Even though I don’t think it emphasizes my pores, the shimmers are a bit too chunky for the powder to be used as a blush. However, the sparkles do fade away pretty quickly, leaving behind a gorgeous satin finish. As you can see in the picture above, the sparkles don’t even show up!
The powder itself is very soft and smooth. It lasted me for more than 6 hours although the sparkles and shimmers die down pretty quickly (which I find to be a very good thing).
