Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick - Rose!

I just love this Shimmer Brick; it’s the perfect blush to give you a bit of a rosy glow with just a touch of shimmer. You can easily build up a stronger colour, or leave yourself with just a hint of it which is another reason I love this so much. I think the fact that it’s not excessively pigmented works in the products favour as I do find that blushers can sometimes be too overpowering and way too easy to overdo on application.

The shimmer is not at all glittery, so you’re not going to look like you let a herd of children loose with several tubes of glitter (does glitter still come in tubes?) as you were applying your makeup. I find it gives quite a dewy finish that flatters the face and can be used to highlight the cheekbones perfectly.

As Shimmer Bricks come with a range of shades within the compact, you will find that you can customise the colour you get *very* slightly, by using certain areas of it more than others. You can also use the very lightest shades to highlight under your brows or any other areas you would normally use highlighter and because the powder appears to be very fine, it’s not going to look stupid or too heavy. I have this in gold and like to use it on my eyes sometimes too, great versatility.

I hope the picture shows the product adequately, feel free to ask if you'd like other shots as I can easily add more if you'd like. If you’ve been reading the blog lately, you’ll know that my normal camera is out of action and whilst it’s not a DSLR camera, it’s certainly a lot better than the camera on my phone that I currently have to use.
