This shimmer brick, which the packaging states was handmade in Italy, comes in 5 shades. The shades are arranged in ascending (or descending, depending on how you look at it) order of shade. I use it as a highlighter (which is what it is meant for) and as eyeshadow. As a highlighter, I use my Ecotools deluxe brush with a light hand and apply it on top of my cheekbones. I build up intensity if I want more glow. This highlighter glows and does not glitter. Some highlighters have far too much shimmer in them and the result is a disco ball. This powder is very finely milled so chunks of shimmer don't show up. As an eyeshadow, I spray MAC's Fix-it on my brush and dip it into the shade that I like. Spraying water on the brush works just as well. What this does is that it intensifies the colour. If you don't want the colour to be intense, you can use it right out of the brick. I absolutely love the last three shades as a lid colour. The lighter shades are good for the inner corners. I then use a dark brown matte shade for the crease and a matte black for the outer 'V' of my eyes. The result is a look that is not over-the-top and which stands out because of the strong lid colour. The shimmer brick is extremely fragile and will probably break into many pieces if it falls. You will probably be able to fix it with isopropyl alcohol but there's not way you'll be able to get the 5 solid colours that appear. So, do be careful if you are transporting this!

I was really excited to receive my Shimmerbrick but have to say that it has not really wowed me although a work colleague has asked whether I've been on the sunbed and my fiancÚ commented on my good complexion last night so maybe it's me being cynical. Here's a summary of what I think:- Packaging fairly plain but with a good sized mirror- Delivers a nice glow but I almost feel that it looks like a blush and can look overdone in the daytime if you are heavy-handed- Can't really use as an eyeshadow as not pigmented enough- White shimmer is good for cupid's bow - Will exaggerate every small bump beneath your skin - Fairly expensive for what it is although I imagine that it will last for a long timeI think I'll try the Mary Lou Manizer next!

This is one of my two HG bronzers. It's very sheer but buildable, and is an excellent choice for lighter skin tones that have trouble finding bronzers that don't make them look like oompa loompas. I use this constantly and am barely making a dent in the powder - and have dropped in a few times and it has survived. I have a lot of pink in my skin and this works perfectly for me - highly recommended.

This is good if you are really pale and just wants to add a quick bronzed look to your face. It does add a gorgeous glow to your face. It is a bit shimmery and for the price, there are better highlighters out there. As with all Bobbi Brown products, it's a little over priced.Please watch my spring look using this!

One of my desert island multi-purpose products that I especially love in the summer. People always complete me on my skin when I wear it. This is what I bring with me on vacation because it's so versatile and easy I use alone or over my blush for a soft warm glow. I also use it as eyeshadow. Love it.

Very nice for dusting all over your face for a warm radiance which is a fine shimmer and not glittery at all. Works well with my pale skin to warm it up a bit but there is no depth of pigment to be able to use it as a blusher or eyeshadow in my opinion.

I was really on the fence about purchasing this highlighter that many people claim has many, less expensive dupes. A Bobbi Brown counter opened up near me (yay!) and I went to try a couple of shades on my cheeks. I tried the Pink Quartz on one side, which looked nice and yet a tad cool on me and the Bronze on the other, which just looked very natural. I do not notice any glitter, but there is a lovely golden glow. When I wore it the first time, over the BB Pale Pink blush, I used my BB powder brush to swipe it once over the brick and once on my cheeks, concentrating it high up on the cheekbones, repeating this 2 or 3 times. I also took the lightest shade and applied a very small amount under my brow arch. Later that day my daughter said, "Mom, turn toward me. Did you just apply blush? Oh, you look so warm and glowing." She's quite the critic, so I know this Shimmer Brick is adding something wonderful to my face at my mature age :) Packaging is a bit clunky but protects the product well, however the box reminds you to be careful, as this is a fragile powder. Will last a year at the very least!

This is pretty but way too glittery so it does not look natural, its obvious your wearing highlight and I prefer a more natural look.

I got this in a swap. I was looking for a multidimensional highlight that wouldn't be too shimmery. This fits the bill. The problem is that it's a little hard to blend. I have to stroke my kabuki brush a lot before the color becomes even. Also, be very careful with how you handle this. i put this in my makeup bag when I was traveling. When I got to the destination, the product was all crumbled. I would not repurchase this because I think I can find a better highlight out there.

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.
