I'd been wanting one of these Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks since 1901 lol! I decided to order the Bobbi Brown 'Instant Pretty' kit for this and the extra fabulous Bobbi Brown products that were included. You can also purchase this from the Bobbi Brown website for £32.00. The mini blending brush came as part of the Instant Pretty kit but you can also find a full sized face blender brush for £33.00 on the Bobbi Brown website.
My shimmer brick came in the limited edition in 'Wild Rose' it has pink and rose tones to it. I love it and it's great for sweaping over the cheeks for a healthy shimmery glow. You can also use the shimmer bricks (available in: Rose, Pink Quartz, Nectar, Beige, Bronze) as highlighters and eyeshadows. Celebrity makeup artists and beauty bloggers are all fans of the shimmer brick. If £32.00 is a bit steep for you, I have seen some reviews saying that 'The Body Shop' do a great dupe of the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick. The 'Rose' shimmer brick was sold out on the website as it's rumoured to be the most popular of the shimmer bricks.
The Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks range has won awards for best highlighter (Company Beauty Awards 2013) and Best Blush range (Harper's Bazaar Beauty Hot 100 2012).
I adore the mini blender brush I got with the Instant Pretty kit, the bristles are so soft, the brush also comes with a little plastic 'hat' to keep your brush clean, bristles in shape and ensures product won't come off the brush and go all over your bag. The bigger version of this brush is said to be just as fabulous as the mini brush. All Bobbi Brown brushes have rave reviews and have won an Award for 'The Best Brush Range' (U magazine Beauty Awards 2012)
Bobbi Brown Application Tip (Face blender brush):
Pick up chosen product and lightly tap to remove excess. Use a dusting motion to blend over skin. The brush can also be used for the Bobbi Brown finishing powder, blush or bronzing powder.
Bobbi Brown Application Tip (Shimmer Brick):
Sweep the blender brush through all 5 shades in the shimmer brick and dust lightly on cheekbones after blush. Focus on applying shimmer on the top of the cheekbones where light naturally hits the face - for the most flattering look.
