When I think back to the first makeup item I truly fell in love with, it has to be the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. So as a disclaimer, this isn’t really a review but more of a must-have product in any beauty kit.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks are mainly meant to be used as a bronzer/highlighter on top of blush. However, I find that they can be used directly as a blush and even as an eyeshadow palette.
Shimmer Bricks are great because the wide range of colors ensures everyone can find a suitable shade. The powder is extremely fine-milled and thus goes on very smoothly and is of great quality like all Bobbi Brown products.
The great thing about these Shimmer Bricks is that you don’t get the obvious orange/bronze look but get an soft glow that adds a je ne sais quoi feel to your face. However, the shimmer can get over-the-top so apply lightly during the daytime.
My only complaint about these product is how delicate they are. They definitely aren’t travel friendly and can be susceptible to cracking into pieces. And at $40 a piece, they aren’t easy to toss out!
I already own the Rose and Bronze versions and can’t wait to add the Special Edition Party Shimmer Brick to my collection! If you don’t own one, go buy yours today and you’ll see exactly why I love this product!
