Oh my, finally got my hands on the famous Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick! This one in particular is the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact Pink Quartz RRP $75 AUD. This cult favourite has been on my ‘to-try’ list since the beginning of my makeup journey, so I am very grateful Bobbi Brown sent it my way.
First of all, it was much more intense than I had expected. I like to use it minimally for a more natural looking glow but it very easily qualifies as an intense instagram-esqe highlighter. See the finger swatch in the photo below as an indication of its potential as an intense highlight. The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick must have been one of the first intense face highlighters of the time, since I know this beauty has been around for a forever and a day.
The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact Pink Quartz would also make a gorgeous eyeshadow! You could even target a more bronze or pink toned shade if you used the right size eyeshadow brush. Note the excess of powder errywhere on the compact, so there may be some fall out during the application. Should be easy to swipe away with a fluffy brush though.
I’m normally more of a champagne highlight kind of girl, but I do enjoy this rose/pink tone on my skin. I think it suits a more romantic or natural style look well. Would potentially be a bit dark on you if your skin tone is much darker than mine (half Filo, half European).
