I’d been hearing so much about the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact lately that I finally just couldn’t take it any more, and had to try it for myself. Friends had raved that it had near-magical qualities to brighten, highlight, and just generally make your skin look amazing – with almost no effort on your part.
After trying it, I have to admit: the stuff is pretty fantastic. I have just about the palest skin imaginable, so I tried out the pink shade. It works as something between a bronzer, highlighter and blush; I actually use it for all three. If you use the right brush, you can even use each of the shades separately as an eye color. I do so love a product that multi-tasks. When I’m feeling really lazy, I just throw a little on my cheeks and forehead, add a bit of mascara, and call it good.
In all, the Shimmer Brick Compact is an excellent way to spend $38 of your beauty budget. You can pick up any or all of the colors at Bobbi Brown’s website.
