Do you remember Sarabeth, my pretty sister whom I featured for her two proms here in my blog? Did you know that she just turned 18? Sigh, how time flies and the little baby that I used to play around with and make fun of sometimes ( woops, sorry Sarabethy Spaghetti! ) has now blossomed into a beautiful young lady. She’s now of legal age, and I really, really feel old!
Now, with Sarabeth’s 18th birthday party, I really, really felt the need to feel young, and moreso, look young, so what product did I turn to to make sure I achieve that effect?
I needed some glow on my face. Ok, found it. It was just timely that Bobbi Brown released her Spring 2012 collection this March, named the Rose Gold Collection. Amongst the beautiful products showcased in her collection included the Bobbi Brown Rose Gold Shimmer brick, and I shall tell you why it made my night.
What is a Shimmer Brick?
A Shimmer Brick is a creation by Bobbi Brown, when she was doing makeup for fashion week. She was told to create that “lit from within glow,” and as she was put on the spot, she whipped up a shimmery eyeshadow and used it as a highlighter on the model. It was with that idea that Bobbi Brown eventually got to create shimmerbricks. For me, a shimmerbrick would be a compact full of shimmery colors of various shades that can be really versatile and multi-purpose. It can be your eyeshadow, blush ( depending on the color ) and even highlighter. Ultimately, it gives the effect of that “lit from within” glow that is just so gorgeous. So gorgeous that one shimmerbrick is shipped every 7.5 minutes, making it one of Bobbi Brown’s bestselling products.
Checking out Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick in Rose Gold, it is definitely filled with metallic hues of rose, and two shades of neutral colors such as beige and brown. Further dissecting it, let me share with you how I find each shade :
