Bobbi Brown Rose Brick Review/Swatches

Bobbi Brown Rose Shimmer Brick - £32.00*

If you are aware about much of Bobbi Brown's products or love the brand the shimmer brick will be something you are already familiar with, these babies are very popular and hyped. I have been loving this from the day I got it, there is 8 different shimmer bricks in total including this one. I decided to go for rose as I wear a lot of pink/purple blushers.


At £32.00 you may think this carries a pretty expensive price tag but these last ages my friend bought hers 2 years ago and still has it now. The rose shimmer brick comes with 5 different colours with can be pretty difficult to use individually but I think the whole idea is to use all the colours together, however if you have a small blending/buffing brush you can pick up the colours individually which is what I like to do, I like using the white shade to highlight the bridge of my nose, my brow bone and inner eye. The shimmer brick is a lot bulkier than I had expected/remember it but then again this means more products in the pan so I'm not complaining in anyway.


The brick is SUPER pigmented, the above swatches are one swipe swatches. I tend  to use this alongside my blusher on just the apples of my cheeks which gives them an amazing glow of colour, you seriously need only a touch of this. As I'm olive skin toned this shows up really well however if I apply it all over on my cheeks it does show up really well but I feel the need to add a stronger colour but if you are lighter skin toned I reckon this would work PERFECT just on its own too. Overall this is one of my fav products so far and has very quickly made it to my list of holy grails, I have a feeling I will be repurchasing this over and over again. I'm wanting to get a couple of the other shades too, I will be buying one of these for my kit too.

Have you tried any of the shimmer bricks? What's your favourite product from Bobbi Brown?
