A few weeks ago I seen a Bobbi Brown shimmer brick on sale and considered buying it, however, I was put off by reviews stating that it wasn’t highly pigmented and basically just gave a shimmer without any actual colour. My dad surprised me by buying me one on his way back from Australia. He bought me the Shimmer Brick in ‘Rose’ which came with a Mini Face Blender Brush.
I have never used Bobbi Brown products before and therefore didn’t have any positive or negative expectations of their products.

For those who have said that the shimmer bricks have very little pigment I must disagree. Perhaps they have used a different colour but I was impressed with the colour. My cheeks seemed to pop after I added the colour. The colour was very natural in my opinion and for my skin tone I thought it was perfect.
The colour lasts all day long, as does the shimmer. I think a little touch of this would brighten any makeup look. I would recommend a shimmer brick to everyone after my experience here. I also loved the brush that came with it and I would consider buying more Bobbi Brown brushes. The brush was incredibly soft and picked up colour really quickly; when you look at the swatches on my hand they colours aren’t as intense, which tells me the type of brush used plays a big part in the result you get with this product.
What do you think of the Shimmer Brick in Rose? Do you have one?
