There's actually a story behind this shimmer brick:

Rewind three years when I had just met my current boyfriend. We decided to go on a date and I spent the entire afternoon in front of the mirror, spending extra time to make sure that my lashes are not clumped together, that my eyeliners are sharp and bold, that all my imperfections are securely hidden under concealers and foundations. Then came the final stage, highlighting, and I saw my roommate's Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze. My roommate agreed that it would give the perfect glow to my skin, and I applied it all over my forehead, my cheek bone, and on the cupid's bow. I took a selfie, was amazed by how my skin looked as though it was glowing from within, went out on a date, came back as one helluva happy girl.

I always remembered how amazing Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick looked on my face on that magical day but somehow other things, eyeshadow palettes mainly, were somehow higher up on my wishlist that I never got around purchasing it. When Nordstorm had their 10% sale on Bobbi Brown products, I went ahead and got the one and only Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze.

A lot has changed in three years. Perhaps it's me, my skin, other products I have put on my face, or just my general preference. Perhaps its the product. I have no clue, but I was left disappointed. I thought, if this doesn't work so well as a highlighter, I'll make it work as a bronzer or an eyeshadow. The pigmentation wasn't enough to use as an eyeshadow, it was too shimmery to be used as a bronzer, and as a highlight this shimmer brick accentuated my pores more than I liked. Granted, I have larger pores than I had three years back, and am more conscious about my pores. Granted, I was out on a date for dinner so the lights were naturally pretty outside on the streets and inside the restaurant and on this very day I tested this product in a broad daylight.

For today's blog post mainly used this for my eye makeup only because I was not at all impressed by how it looked as a highlighter or as a bronzer on my skin. Anyhow, I will have to experiment with this more and will certainly find a way to use this, but until then I will not be reaching for this product as much as I thought I would.

Do you own Bobbi Brown's shimmer bricks? What are your thoughts on them?

XOXO,

Hae Min

  1. The Bronze Shimmer Brick is such a classic product! One of the original highlighters from when I first started getting into high-end makeup over 10 years ago. So pretty on you! xo
