Hope you all are happy and healthy.
According to Bobbi Brown "Nothing lights up your face than shimmer". For a million dollar shine and glow, Bobbi Brown created shimmer bricks.
I picked up mine very recently in color Beige. Beige, as described on the Bobbi Brown, website provides candle light glow and will work well with peach and pink blushes.
When you see the product, the colors look very boring and neutral. But, when they are mixed together, they gives metallic shine wherever you apply. The shine is very similar to what I get from my Estee Lauder's Highlighter in Modern Mercury. The Beige shade looks very similar to Dior's Amber Diamond, but, the shine is impeccable. I am short of words to describe how beautiful it looks. Especially now during winters when rest of the world is gloomy, the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick will make you glow and shine high.
I like applying it using a small fluffy brush such as Sigma E40 and on the high points of face, cheek bones, cupid's bow, bridge of the nose, and tip of the nose. It doesn't make my combination skin look oily or cakey and hasn't broken me out.
As for the product, it comes in a black plastic compact with a mirror. I feel that the compact size is too bigger for the amount of product (10.3 gms). But, for a delicate product like this much size is important for to travel safely through continents. Thankfully it doesn't come with a brush which would have further increased the size of the compact and not to mention, price.
I purchased mine from Bobbi Brown's New Delhi store for INR 2500.00, which I feel is quite reasonable as very little goes a long way and worth the every penny.
