Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose. £32. Debenhams
Individual Colour Swatches
'White' Shade Highlighter

Hiya Mixbagers. So I've finally got round to my review of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick! You may have heard lots about it with it being a multiple award winning product and all, and I'm happy to say it meets the hype! I was spoilt by Santa this Christmas and received this beaut amongst a couple of other yummy goodies and it's been my go-to blusher for nights out and special occasions ever since! Why not every day I hear you ask? Well, as much as I love the colour and shimmer, for everyday wear I find the shimmery pigment a little to much as I prefer to go a touch more matte, and besides, I love it so much I don't want it to run out anytime soon! 

I have the shimmer brick in the colour palette, Rose, and the different tones and shades blend really well together to create a beautiful, soft, feminine flush! I apply it using my No.7 Blush Brush and find a couple of presses into the palette is plenty to achieve the right amount of colour! To sum up the colour, the 'Rose' palette gives a gorgeous cooler toned pink flush/metallic combination that can be built up for a stronger tone if needs be! The white shade of the blush creates a fantastic highlighter for cheek bones and using my Real Techniques brush I also dab it on my eyebrow bone and along my nose for an extra shimmery, dewy look! 

The packaging, although sleek and chic in classic Bobbi Brown style, is a little hefty for the product, but it does have a nice sized mirror and I like to think protects it a little more from cracking if you were to drop it! A tick in the box from us clumsier ladies! 

Would I recommend it? Yes! I would definitely recommend this blush if you like your girly glows! It's super pretty and perfect for a shimmery finish!

Have any of you used the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick?
