Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for a Candlelight Glow

Hey Guys,

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.

I hope you guys liked the review. I am now eyeing Nector and Copper & Diamond Shimmer Bricks.

To my American readers, a very Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you all are having a great time with your families.

Lots of Love



  1. thats aamazinglyyyyyyyyyyyyy gorgeous on you Eeshaaa :)

  2. Hey Eesha, whoa look at that glow! I used to own one of these, but I prefer my highlighter to be on the subtle side (mostly because I have oil T-zone to begin with. A very visible highlighter could mix badly with my natural sebum), so I can't really even find it in my stash anymore! I know there are some LE highlighters in the holiday collection. I am kind of curious about those and will swatch them when I can!

    1. Hey Sunny,

      I also generally prefer a more subtle highlight, but, occasionally I like some more glow and shine! :-D

  3. Wow, that's some seriously glowy highlighter there! Despite all the glowing review, I have yet to invest in any of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick yet! I guess I'm just waiting for the right moment. LOL.

    1. Hi Jaa.. thanks for stopping by! I will wish for your right time to come soon as I would love to see some breathtaking pictures you take! :-D
