Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 25 - 2010

Here’s my other recent purchase, I’m currently hiding the invoice email in a folder I never venture into.  Out of sight out of mind right?

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose (£29.50)  is a much cooler toned blush/highlight.  It’s slightly less pigmented than Nectar and also a touch more metallic (though equally beautiful).

The white shade is opalescent… it has that pearly pink thing going on, very pretty!

I’m still working out how best to wear these, if you have any tips or blush combinations that work for you… be sure to let me know!

I paid £16 for my Rose Shimmer Brick (unboxed) from StrawberryNET.

    thanks to you I now own both two and am loving it so much, I have been kind of just swirling and using as a blush but need to work on it. Some of the nectar shades are working so well as an eyeshadow. I am so pleased with these, cant wait to see how you decide to use them :)

    Looks very pretty!

    Strange how Nectar is more rosey in colour, and Rose is more honey coloured.

  5. @Lily – Nectar is warm toned, Rose is cool toned x

    Oh my gooosh I am so happy I listened to you and got Nectar. It actually does work as a blush on me, and it makes me glow like crazy without making me look oily! Looove. Tempted by Rose, too, but I must resist because I have a very long wishlist on Sephora at the moment. Thanks for posting the photos!

    I meant to ask how you got on with the cheap version you got from Sue Moxley Famous a while back.

    I picked up a bronzey one from Primark for 3 squids and despite it being a little bit orange I quite like…

  9. @Galen – I keep meaning to do a post on it. I’ll do it tonight! xx

  10. AWESOME article on my favourite face shimmer in the history of cosmetics! I have rated it 5 stars on my beauty blog.
    Love how you show the shades individually & swirled together.

  11. Galen says:

    Thank you very much – I look forward to it.

    And while I’m being mean and asking about things from long ago, did you ever reveal what your favourite BB Cream was, or am I imagining seeing you post that/get this blog confused with another one/or I am otherwise being crap?

    Thanks!

  12. @Galen – I only have two so far!

    V. quick thoughts: Skin79 Super+ BB Triple Functions – lovely texture, though very sheer

    SkinFood Gingko Green BB Cream – Sheer to Medium, thick with not much slip, bit harder to blend. I felt it made me a bit chalky looking.

    I’m still hunting!

    I will get round to doing posts… can you see why I have to do 3 posts a day? I swear, I have far too much to say!

    Thank you very much!

    I like that you have lots of beauty stuff to talk about – it’s all inteteresting and you tell it so well – please keep up the good work.
