Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 21 - 2010

My StrawberryNet order arrived on Saturday, super fast shipping from Hong Kong… incredibly fast actually, took about 2 days.

Anyway, here’s my first Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick…

Nectar…

Isn’t she lovely?

I’m pale enough to pull this one off as a blush if I wanted… it might be a bit frosty for that, I think it’s a product I need to experiment with before I work out how best to put it to use.

The texture is pretty smooth and the shimmer although very obvious, isn’t too chunky.  I’m pleased with my £16 bargain!

Next on my ‘play with’ list is Rose – can you see me?  I’m doing a happy makeup dance!

    I love how its pigmented enough to use as a blush. I’ve been lemming all of the BB shimmer bricks but they all turn out just all shimmer and nearly no colour on me so I’ve been passing… until this one =D

    Ahhh, I got it! Now I know I won’t be able to pull it off as a blush like you, but the word on MakeupAlley is that it looks gorgeous on Asian skin and that is what I have. Plus, the glow in your pictures–and the price on StrawberryNet!–I couldn’t resist. T_T Thanks for sharing your impressions!

    Hi…i kind of question whether its real..mine arrived today..and i compared the box to my bro’s gf’s shimmer brick and there is quite a diff…the box itself is different…eg the ‘button’ is meant to be grainy but is smooth on the one from strawberrynet…and the hinge is diff..and the sticker says assembled in italy instead of made in italy..the product looks the same though..so either bb has changed packaging..or they are making pretty good rip offs…

    I absolutely love the swatch of the nectarr! I recently did a review on the one in rose http://roseannebeauty.onsugar.com/Bobbi-Brown-Shimmer-Brick-Review-12337803 might want to add that to your stash as well 😀 Nectar looks like such a perfect peach!
