I’m so excited to have my very first Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact ($45)! I have heard so many amazing things about these highlighters but they are just so expensive. I saw this limited edition one, Sandstone, on QVC and decided to splurge since it was divided into two easy pay payments.
If you aren’t familiar with BB Shimmer Bricks, they consist of 5 strips of various colors of shimmery powders combined into one compact. They are most commonly used as cheek highlighting powders but each color can be used individually as eyeshadows as well.
Sandstone starts with a shimmery champagne and then moves on to variations of gold, rose golds and finishes with a warm bronze. When used together the colors combine into a beautiful warm bronzed rose gold glow.
These shimmer bricks can be quite intense highlighters so start with a light hand, especially if you have fair skin like I do. The colors are quite pigmented so a little goes a very long way.
I love how silky smooth these powders are. They don’t look powdery or cakey on the cheeks. They simply blend right into the skin for a natural looking glow.
Do you own any Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks? Which color is your favorite?
