Product Review: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick

This was one of my Apothica gift card purchases (see post) from my giveaway win. I'm still waiting on the Deborah Lippman nail polish, apparently it's on backorder. I'll keep you posted on that one. Anyway, this weekend I tested out the bronzer to see if I liked it.

The bronzer I used prior to this one was Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips which is the same premise (use each individual color as an eyeshadow, use them all together as bronzer) just of higher quality.

Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz
First of all, I loved that it came in a sturdy compact and included a mirror! Bonus points! Also love that you have to hit a button to open it, I feel like it makes it even sturdier.

You can't really see it too much in this front shot. I looks more like blush, but I wanted to include it for you guys (btw don't mind my hair, it was still wet).

You can see it better in this view. I am really sold on this. Too bad by the time I decided to purchase the bronzer, most of my tan faded. At least I know it looks good on my more fairer skin (which is usually the harder thing to find). Now it goes on light so if you want a shinier/bronzier look, I would reapply a few times over. (P.S. My sister thought I should smile in this picture and that it was weird that I had a "bored" look on my face, just thought I'd share that)

If you want to accentuate it even more, I recommend buying the e.l.f Shimmer Palette that I purchased a few weeks ago (see post). I haven't had a chance to review it, but I swear it's coming! Anyway, rub that on your cheek before or after and it can only make it stand out even more.

Have you used this bronzer? If not, what's your go to bronzer?

I love Bobbi Brown's shimmer brick. Best of all it's totally worth the investment because it lasts forever. I just replaced the one I had for over 2 years!
