Pink Quartz

This shade shimmer brick has a blend of iridescent pink, copper and bronze shades which when blended together gives a bronzy pink with a hint of glitter. The compact of course if super luxe with rose gold writing and pan and a large mirror inside the compact for application.

Unfortunately this is too dark for me to use as highlighter. I do however use it as an eyeshadow and it’s gorgeous for this purpose.

Simply Beautiful

I've never been much of a highlighter person, being an oily-skinned girl in my mind shiny was never a good thing. I've been playing around with various highlighting products this year and after hearing sooo many good things about Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick I had to give it a go. I admit I didn't pay full price for mine, and before using it I wouldn't have done but with how much I love it I really thing it's worth the investment.

This is the first Bobbi Brown product I have owned and I was impressed by the quality of the packaging, sleek and well-made with no unnecessary dazzle, it lets the product speak for itself and it's sturdy enough to withstand travel.

The shimmer brick is made up of five shimmering powders, a white and four bronzes. The product is very fine and pigmented, a little goes a very long way. Being an amateur I was worried I'd go overboard but it's incredibly easy to blend in and create a really nice glow.

I like to apply this using a rounded kabuki brush after I apply my bronzer and blush, running the brush lightly through the brick, picking up a little of each colour and then brushing it across my cheekbones. I've also used this as an eyeshadow palette when travelling as the colours are such pretty, shimmering bronzes and you can create so many looks from them.

I normally wouldn't spend so much on a highlighter but this product is so much more and really takes my makeup to the next level. When I'm looking less than fab, this is the product I reach for to perk me up (or at least look like it!). Because of how little product you use at a time I see this lasting a very long time and I highly recommend it for anyone wanting a really lovely highlighter.

Long lasting

A good quality shimmer brick. A little on the expensive side compared to others on the market but you definitely get your monies worth out of it. I use it all year around, summer use is to enhance a 'summer glow', winter use is more for a special occasion. Goes on lightly and can be built up to an all over sun kissed look, as a blush or as a shimmer across the cheekbones. Colour blends easily and I don't find the brick loses too much powder so next to no wastage. Great with different types of blush brush, small, medium, large.

Tips: Take your time in applying it, doesn't build up in an instant so no worry about over doing your blush. Use the lightest shimmer colour as a highlighter under your brows to define their shape.

Shimmer sensation!

My first ever Bobby Brown product, I brought one off trademe that was barely used, the photo doesn't do it justice!

It is very pigmented, a small amount goes a long way, you can build up the colour as much as you like and its easy to blend. I used to use this as an eyeshadow for the inner corners of my eyes and under the arch of my brow. It looks great putting a small amount on your cupids bow, this product is so versatile! Sadly last year it dropped off my counter and smash the shimmer brick, I have recently purchased the Chichi shimmer brick which is good but not as amazing as the Bobby Brown highlighter. Its on my list of things to buy again, I would highly recommend it to anyone who is wanting to purchase a powder highlighter, this is the best quality highlighter I have tried and worth the money if you can afford it.

Tips: You can use this highlighter on the inner corners of your eye, above the cupids bow, in the middles of your lipstick, under your eyebrow arch, I also liked to put this on the out side points of my eyebrows, and across my collar bones, this shimmer brick has so many uses, so versatile and easy to carry

Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick

I fell in love with this product as soon as I tried it on. I was looking for a subtle but noticeable highlighter and found this worked perfectly on me. Such a beautiful highlighter that blends in perfectly giving you that warm shimmery effect. and lasts all day. Well worth the money!

Tips: Glad to see the price has come down, I bought this at the Bobbi Brown counter for $99 a long while ago. Tip? Get it now - You won't be disappointed!!

I absolutely love this product AND was willing to part with $99 to have it! $60 is a bargain!! Maybe you could visit a Bobbi Brown store/counter and try it before you buy it :-)

This looks so pretty, it's $60 on strawberry.net- I'm very tempted to get one!
