Greetings fellow makeup freaks! It’s actually my first time to purchase and try Bobbi Brown’s infamous shimmer bricks. It’s just appropriate to try out the new and limited edition Bobbi Brown Telluride Sunset Pink Shimmer Brick for Fall 2015. There are 5 shades in a strip form in a pan of shimmer brick. I just swatched the entire thing all together since I am mainly using this as a highlighter. You may use them individually and apply as an eyeshadow if you please, but I just find this way as tedious. Moving on, I am very much pleased with the overall quality and performance of Bobbi Brown Sunset Pink Shimmer Brick. I initially thought it will be made of chunky glitter and too “in your face” luminous. It’s my first shimmer brick and definitely won’t be my last.
Bobbi Brown Telluride Sunset Pink Shimmer Brick is characterized as a highlighter of flattering combination of pale, golden and rosy pinks. It appears as a warm peachy beige with strong pink undertones when all shades are swirled together. The shimmer is very subtle on my brown skin which to my delight I am very much pleased. The after effect is like I just applied a radiant primer underneath. Having said that, it doesn’t accentuate the pores. It averages 9.5 hours of wear on me. I doesn’t appear oily or greasy through time which is a common problem on some highlighters. The texture is finely milled and doesn’t feel dry or chunky.
The Bottom Line:
Bobbi Brown Telluride Sunset Pink Shimmer Brick is a keeper and sets the tone for me to pick up some more. I missed on getting Bobbi Brown Apricot Shimmer Brick a few collections back, in which looking at the current list price on eBay is cutoff point ridiculous. Since it is very subtle, I can even wear this as a blush also. There are a few out on the market that are permanent but nothing unique appeals to me. I’ve noticed in the past couple of years that the shimmer bricks that are limited edition are way more gorgeous than the permanent ones. It’s a lesson learn for me when I missed on Bobbi Brown Apricot Shimmer Brick. I’ve seen bloggers wore this individually but I just don’t have the time and the patience to do it. What’s your favorite Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick?
