Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick Palette

Can I make a confession? I have never used a Bobbi Brown Shimmer Palette before. I know, I know! They're one of those products that you will find in pretty much anyone's makeup arsenal. I just never had an interest in them. I guess when I was younger I thought they were too 'mature' for me, but now that I'm older (sad face) I totally get it and feel like I've really been missing out all these years!

Bobbi Brown's Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick Palette is the latest Shimmer Brick. It comes out as part of the Lilac Rose collection (which is Limited Edition, by the way, so run to your store now!!) It has five beautiful, pearly, shimmery shades of pink, which are Bobbi's take on this Spring's floral trend. The colors are all pretty, feminine and best of all, super wearable.

Each of the shades can be worn alone as blush, highlighter or shadow. I prefer to wear them all mixed up, because when you mix them up they look like this...

Aaaaaahhhhh!! So much prettiness!!!! 

As you can see, it's got that beautiful rose gold sheen to it that just looks so stunning when worn on the face. I like to wear it on top of my cheekbones because it gives my face such a pretty glow. It doesn't look cakey at all either and it blends really well so it doesn't look like I've just swiped on some Vaseline or something! It really mimics that whole 'candlelight' glow. This stuff is perfect for date night, ladies!

According to the website, this particular Shimmer Brick is best suited for light to medium skin tones, but I really think that anyone can use it. I've had no issues wearing it on my NC42-44 skin tone and I am pretty sure that even people with deeper skin tones can rock the heck out of this. The only thing is that I am super worried that I'm gonna drop it and smash it, so I have been really, REALLY careful!

Have any of you tried this Shimmer Brick? What are your favorite Bobbi Brown products?

  1. I really like the Shimmer Bricks, but BB is just way too expensive for me. I use something quite similar, the colors a bit cooler and I guess the quality is not the same, of course.

  2. I've had this in bronze a long time ago.. I forgot how much I used to love it.. This shade looks beauuutiful!

  3. It's so pretty! I really can't believe it's taken me so long to get on the Shimmer Brick train! haha

  4. Oh, what brand is the one you have? If I'm going to be honest, the price was probably one of the reasons I never tried it before.

  5. It's from a german "green" brand, like all natural INCIs. It's called Alverde. Check out this Link, the first product I showed: http://lilosbudgetblog.blogspot.de/2012/07/meine-blushsammlung-klein-aberahklein.html

  7. Gorgeousss. I have the peach shimmer brick and I love it!

  8. Have you tried any other shimmer bricks? Are they worth the price?
