Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Review (Rose)*

21 Jul

I was recently asked to review a Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for QVC and of course I said that I’d love to.Β  QVC is a shopping channel but also has a website which is regularly updated with great deals.

The Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks come in black glossy cardboard box on the back of which are some details about the product. On this it tells you that the shimmer bricks are handmade in Italy, this is something I didn’t know!

Inside the cardboard box is the case containing the shimmer brick. This is also a sleek glossy black. The case also has a mirror inside which is great for applying the product, especially on the go πŸ™‚ There is also little square protecting the product.

Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks consist of five different coloured bars, ranging from light to dark. They can be used as highlighters, for adding a little colour to cheeks and as eyeshadows! I really couldn’t believe how much this product could be used for.

The colours in the rose shimmer brick all have a pinkness to them even the white shade, which in certain lights has a pink shimmer running through it.Β  Although all the shades are different, they work really well blended together. I haven’t tried these as eyeshadows yet but I can tell you that they work really well by blending all the colours together on cheeks. I found that they also had really good staying power about 6 hours before needing touched up. I thought this was really good especially considering the really warm weather that we’ve been having in Scotland.

The product cost Β£30.50 and comes in a range of colours so I feel that there is something for everyone. You can purchase the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks here and you can see the full range of Bobbi Brown products that are available from QVC here.

Have you tried the Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks or are they something that you’d like to try? Let me know what you think πŸ™‚

    It’s very pretty πŸ™‚ I love the tones, and I think together they work really well.
    It’s quite pricey but i like it.

      It is really pretty, isn’t it? It does seem quite pricey but you can use it for more than one thing and there is over 10g of product so you do get a lot for your money πŸ™‚
