Hey everyone! I hope you all are doing good.
First of all I apologize for not being regular on my blog. From now on I’ll be posting frequently. After so many months of not posting anything, I came back with one of my favorite product from my vanity. Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks, who doesn’t love this product? I bought this shimmer brick last year in the shade Bronze. So here’s my review on the most beautiful highlighter I’ve ever used.
Let’s talk about the gorgeous packaging first. Beautiful classy black compact has a magnetic closure. It comes with a big mirror inside which is perfect for touch ups. It is handcrafted in Italy.
It contains 5 strips like colors, which looks very shimmery in the pan. They are shimmery but not glittery. These five colors are very pretty, first one is pale champagne gold, then rose gold, warm bronze, peachy bronze, copper bronze. All colors are in warm tone that’s why they compliment Indian skin tone so much. This particular shade brick, Bronze is best for Indian skin tones. Bobbi brown shimmer brick is versatile. It can be used as a highlighter, eyeshadows or bronzer.
You can swirl the brush on the first three shades of the brick and dust it on your cheekbones. When I first applied it as a highlighter, I was literally surprised by the pigmentation and finishing. As a highlighter it was looking so beautiful on my cheeks, I can’t explain in words. It doesn’t look shimmery on your face, gives beautiful pearly subtle finishing. You can use the second and the third color as a blush, and last shade copper bronze as a bronzer. But I would suggest not to use this compact for all of them at once. Because it has a bit of shimmers which looks metallic when its on but if you will apply highlighter, blush and bronzer, all of them with this then it can make you look very sparkly I would say. Finishing will not look natural, and your makeup will go overboard which is absolutely not cool. Also, in my opinion bronzers look more natural if they are matte rather than shimmery. Now coming to the eyeshadow application, last shade can be used as a transition color. Pale champagne gold can be used for highlighting your brow bone and inner corners of the eye. So obviously you can use all shades on your eye lids.
One word for the pigmentation of this shimmer brick is Perfection. Colors are so heavily pigmented. They gives a beautiful sheen coverage. The formula is very soft and velvety, blends smoothly. Wear time of the colors is like 7-8 hours, without fading. You can increase the staying power by applying primer before or face mists afterwards.
I love everything about this compact. I waited so long to get my hands on this Bobbi Brown Shimmer brick and finally I’m so happy after using it because I was not expecting this much from this product. I thought may be this is just one over rated product in makeup community but a big no-no! Bobbi brown shimmer brick is beyond perfection.
