What we say:

This was one of the first Bobbi products I was introduced to. And it is still one of my must-have make-up products. I love the all round glow I can create using just one product and I can choose which shades I want. I use it as a blusher sometimes when I don’t have blusher, or as a highlighter under my brows and on my cheek bones. You can even use it as eyeshadow. One of these bricks lasts me forever and I love spoiling myself to the limited edition shades. As it is compact it makes it your perfect travel partner and is easy to pop into your bag for a touch up!

  1. It took me a while to find the right brush to apply this product properly (the Bobbi Brown brush recommended by the Bobbi Brown consultant was a little over my budget), but now that I have a brush that works, I have absolutely fallen in love with it! I have the shade “Pink Quartz”. I love using it over cream blush, to sort of “set” the cream blush, as well as to highlight. The highlight it gives is incredibly beautiful…soft, fine, shimmery, natural glow. It doesn’t look over-done, as can be the case with other highlighters. I’ve not had much luck using the strips individually as eye shadows (perhaps my eye shadow brushes need a revamp), but that really doesn’t bother me because I love it as a highlighter. I am definitely going to purchase more shades in this gorgeous product, as well as the proper Bobbi Brown brush to apply it.

  2. This shimmer brick is almost iconic in its perfection! Its a compact no lady should be without! I have had two of these compacts in Rose – the first one lasted me three years and I am well into the second year of my second one and its still going strong.
    It comes in a plain black compact and has a mirror featured on the inside of the lid. It then has different shades ranging from a pale highlighter to bronze to pink, which can be used alone or together. The effect of sweeping them all together onto your cheekbones is just gorgeous. A soft shimmer is created which is subtle and gorgeous, as long as you don’t go overboard. Each strip can be used on its own as a blusher, highlighter, bronzer and even as eyeshadow. It’s is such a cute little multitasker! The only limitation is your imagination!
    At the price, it isn’t cheap, but totally worth it as it really lasts for a very long time. So little is needed at each application, so its really value for your money. I have received compliments when wearing this product as to how pretty I am looking, and people cant put their finger on it, but I am sure its the shimmer brick glow! So come on ladies, get your glow on, especially now that summer is just around the corner!

  3. A beauty must-have for girls on the go! Handmade in Italy, this compact features superfine pigments that reflect radiance and light, giving you that little touch of sparkle to enhance that superb personality. Focus on applying shimmer on the top of your cheekbones where natural light highlights your face. I have the rose variant from Bobbi Brown’s shimmer brick compact collection, and I simply adore the products soft texture, which is so easy to apply. You can also add a touch to your eyelids to complete your look!

  4. The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact adds a beautiful luminous glow to daytime make-up and an alluring shimmer to evening looks. I have used the same compact as a bronzer, blush, highlighter and eyeshadow – even using it to create a very subtle, natural smoky eye. Best of all, it blends incredibly well and there is no risk of having streaks of shimmer. Despite its multiple uses, this products lasts quite long – I have had the same compact in my make-up bag for nearly two years.
    It comes in a gorgeously simple, yet sophisticated, compact. However, I do sometimes find it a little tricky to open (not enough grip).
    This is a must-buy for summer evenings – when you want to look amazing but it is too hot and humid for full make-up.

  5. It’s a real multi-tasker. I have had mine for 3 years. I use it as an eyeshadow, a highlighter, a blusher and all over my face for bare faced luminosity. You can’t get better than this.

  6. The shimmer brick compact is what caused me to fall in love with Bobbi Brown. It gives a neutral yet alluring shimmer that I simply love!

  7. I absolutely adore everything Bobbi Brown. This compact sounds quite pricy but the shimmer is gorgeous. The problem with shimmer though is that you have to get it very fine and light, or else you look like a neon party stick. I love that this makes your skin glow with a subtle tint. I’ve used mine almost daily for over a year and it’s still far from being empty, so I feel that it’s worth the spend.

  8. The original shimmer brick by Bobbi Brown is a real multi-tasker. I love that you can opt for darker shades for bronzing or pinker shades for blush/ highlighter.

    I bought the pink quartz shimmer brick recently and I absolutely love using it as a pop of colour and shimmer when I go out at night. The look is luminous without looking cheap/glittery. You only need a tiny amount so it really is worth the investment that will last you a long time!
