If you want a great colour payoff with an ample amount of shimmer and sheen then the classic, and ever popular, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks are going to be your best friend. However if you are keener on a more subtle finish with a mere flush of colour and pretty luminosity then these new Brightening Bricks are just up your (makeup) street and are begging for a swatch next time you are walking past a counter!
This new range of Bobbi Brown Brightening Bricks (£34) are a multitasking must-have to give you the benefit of three products in one with just a couple of sweeps – the warmth of a bronzer, the pure colour of a blush and the luminosity of a highlighter. These mosaic-inspired palettes are formulated using a unique method of pouring the creamy, pearlescent paste into the pan, pressed while wet and then allowed to air-dry to create a softer, moisture-rich powder with a long lasting colour. You can really feel how oddly creamy these powders are and this means they glide onto your cheeks effortlessly without drying the skin or settling into fine lines. The main beauty of these bricks is the brightening effect it gives you thanks to their blend of mulberry and grape extracts which instantly illuminates the complexion with a sheer dose of pearl-infused radiance. There are six different colour combinations in the collection with a varying amount of shimmer, warmth and colour to enhance and lift everyone’s individual complexion and skin tone meaning skin is left looking fresh, natural and glowing after a gentle dusting.
So are you a slave to your Shimmer Brick or do you fancy something more subtle with these new Brightening Bricks?
