Bobbi Brown Platinum Shimmer Brick Review

I think that even Marvin would find something enlightening to say about the Bobbi Brown Platinum Shimmer Brick! You can't possibly be miserable with this hanging around your cosmetic collection can you?

All that silver and pink is quite robotic or is that my inner geek coming out to play?

Bobbi Brown Platinum Shimmer Brick could host up my new favorite category as it's truly a gorgeous compact! Combining softer pinks with hints of silver and contrasting it all with a few bolder shades makes for an interesting cool look this Spring season! Today I reviewed Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadows for you and I couldn't help thinking how fabulously Ballet would go with the Platinum Shimmer Brick.

The shades in the compact range from a softer pink, with a tiny touch of silver, a few bolder shades of pink, and finishing with a soft peach. Combined together the effect is a subtle pink, silver glow that highlights cheeks and face. On top of a cool pink blush this shines through as a luminous glow.

I was quite happy to see that Bobbi Brown seems to be embracing this new style compact for her Shimmer Bricks. Where as most of the older bricks are housed in a black compact this comes in a silver compact with a padded cover just like the Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick released this Winter season!

I tend to have a heavy hand during application so my FOTD's have a slight shimmer overload look but with a lighter hand you can achieve a very nice subtle shimmer finish that's sophisticated and perfect for daytime use. The brick screams Spring in a major way and compliments many cool looks, particularly pastels and pinks. If you're unlucky enough to have chubby cheeks like the Muse you'll be happy to take note that the brick creates a rather nice flushed looks to cheeks and makes your face glow. The product isn't deeply pigmented and I think it works best on your face however you can easily use it a a nice eyeshadow for a sheer wash of color on lids.

For my look I combined a soft pink on my lids with a sparkling silver on my lower lash to contrasts with the silver and pink in the brick.

All in all the Bobbi Brown Platinum Shimmer Brick is probably one of the prettiest ones I own and it's quite a lovely edition to my collection. This one is Muse Approved for purchase! The Muse loves the color, loves the Spring feeling of the brick, and particularly likes that sci-fi feel of it! Marvin approves too if you were wondering!

Loves it?

Have it already?

Wanting it?

Tell the Muse!

hi Syn@3sTh3sI@!

I'm not sure hun...I believe I have an old maquillage design cheek in goldy bronze and as I recall the topspray of shimmer was lovely but the actually powder was very matte so this is def different as it has plenty of shimmer.

Hope this helps :-D
