This is truly a gorgeous bronzy highlight/blush. The color is so beautiful- it's a perfect bronze tone with a fine shimmer-sheen. I like to apply this with a fluffy blush brush because I find that it looks less shimmery that way. I always want to build the color up but you can't really do that without building up the shimmer as well, which then starts to look a bit obvious. When applied properly it highlights the face so beautifully. I put this on my cheekbones and even on the center of my forehead since I am super dry. If you're oily, you probably don't want to do that unless you've set with a powder. I haven't had any issues with my shimmer brick crumbling or breaking-yet and I have traveled with it. just be sure to KEEP THE FOAM INSERT as this will protect the product which is very fragile. You can blend all the shades together for a warm golden glow or what I like to do is first apply the darker shades on my cheeks and then concentrate with the light highlighting shade on the tops of my cheekbones. It photographs beautifully and adds such a great dimension to the skin. When I was wearing this out in the daylight, I asked my mom if I looked like a glitter bomb in the sun and she said not at all. so as long as you don't apply too much, you can get that glowing effect without the glitter party on your face. I love these so much that I have also purchased Nectar, which is a beautiful coral with golden sheen- ugh so pretty!
These are not the cheapest things but I don't see myself having to repurchase simply because there is so much product in the compact.
My favorite bronzer! Don't let the "Shimmer Brick" name scare you away from this product. I barely notice any shimmer when I wear this . It imparts a natural looking bronze color. The color is perfect because it's not at all orange, nor is it too dark or flat brown. Other brown-based bronzers can make my skin look dirty. This one doesn't. I apply it with Bobbi's face blender brush which is a great tool for an even application.
I love this! I'm an NC25 and a light dusting over Mac Studio Fix and Chanel Les Beiges leaves my skin radiant. It's perfect for nights out but the reason it didn't get a 5 is because it's far too glittery to wear as an every day highlighter. When mine runs out I'll definitely be repurchasing, but I've had it around 6 months and am no where near touching pan yet. The longevity of it makes it worth the £32 I picked it up for! The packaging is, as usual for Bobbi Brown, absolutely gorgeous and can be kept easily clean. The mirror is so handy for popping it in my handbag for nights out too. Definitely a must have for teen girls!
This is a beautiful blush. I use a stippling brush to apply to my cheeks and it makes me look like I have a healthy glow without looking the usual obvious blush pink.
This is such an amazing glow -
I have very pale, very pink-toned skin and this gives me an amazing, just-back-from-the-Bahamas glow. Not orange, not too bronze, and extremely finely milled. Very understated, as long as you use a light touch. That said, you can totally "bling" yourself out with this.
This product is very easy to apply and to blend, too. Looking at this in the pan, I was concerned it would be too dark - but it is not. It's quite sheer, actually, and very buildable.
I cannot wait to try the Pink Quartz and Beige shades.
Highly recommended. Very well worth the asking price.
I think this is a nice highlighter for girls with deeper skin. I used this the other day and it was amazing. It really brought my features forward. It was like a spotlight was shining on the areas where I applied this.
I also like the colors individually as eyeshadows. You do have to be careful with this though. It's very concentrated and easy to overdo it. So, use a light hand and you'll be happy with the results. continued >>
Love this! I've used it on my cheeks, sides of jaw, and my eyes. Versatile, provides a fabulous glow. Lasts for a really long time. Will definitely buy again when I finally run out.
I actually did not buy this product, my mother had bought it and didn't feel that it worked for her skin tone. My mom is quite pale and I on the other hand have a very tan bronze complexion (I'm from South America). She gave it to me after she found something that she liked better. I must say I am SO thankful that she gave this to me! This is the most beautiful highlighter I have ever seen or used. It's the most gorgeous combination of colors for my skin tone! The colors are a white pearly color, a purple/pinky, a bronze, a rose gold pink and a darker brown, all with gold shimmer. I used a fluffy eco tools brush and just sweep it across my cheek bone. You don't need much to get a good result! (Keep in mind I have the Bronze one, I have not tried the others.) This highlighter looks like a candlelight glow on my skin. It doesn't make it look shiny like being oily or anything just very healthy and glowy.Whenever I wear this I get multiple compliments on how pretty my skin looks. I would definitely say that this compliments darker skin tones the best as I think it looks too dark for paler skins. It gives me a great sun kissed look like I just got back from the beach. It is Bobbi Brown so it is quite expensive ( I looked it up on the Bobbi Brown website), it costs 40 dollars. I am going to have it for a while cause as I said you don't need to use too much to get a good result, but I will definitely buy it whenever I run out, I do wish it were a bit cheaper though. You can get something from MAC for cheaper I'm sure. The packing is nice, all black with Bobbi Brown logo on the front. It's plastic so I would be careful, the product might crack or shatter if you drop it. Even though it's a quite chunky compact, it doesn't feel too durable to me. I wish it were a bit thinner compact cause it takes up A LOT of room in my makeup bag, sometimes I will take it out and not to bring it to save room. Those are the only down sides I have; the price and the packaging. I can overlook those because of how beautiful it is though. This is my HG highlighter and I would definitely recommend that. Keep in mind there are other colors so if you're pale or have a different skin tone you have lots of options! :)
This is an excellent, nicely pigmented multi-use product with a subtle shimmery/metallic (but not glittery) finish.
I particularly love the Bronze Shimmer Brick because it's tones are very complimentary on my medium Asian skin. I have used the relevant colour bars of this compact as a highlighter (top bar), eye shadows, contour bronzer, and blended together as a blush.
Application is smooth and sheer, but buildable enough. A little goes a long way - I have been using this compact almost daily for over a year and I've only hit the pan in the bottom three colour bars. I do note that, as each bar has worn down, the powder gets more 'baked in' and requires a slightly heavier brush.
Packaging is a sturdy, square, black plastic compact with a mirror. The only 'drawback' would be that the compact's on the larger side, so fitting into a small clutch for touch ups throughout the night is sometimes impractical.
Price is around $79 in Australia, if I remember correctly, although US price is $39. Nonetheless, even the more expensive price is justifiable in terms of the quality of this product.
I love this product. I am an NW35 and have trouble looking for a good highliter that doesn't look glittery or too shimmery...this is perfect. It makes my face glow but it doesn't look like I packed on a ton of product. A little bit goes a long way....
The packaging is cute but be careful not to drop it.
Will purchase again....
