I gave you all a sneak peek yesterday – did you manage to guess what it was? It is one of the infamous Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compacts; let’s give a warm welcome to Wild Rose; given to me courtesy of the good people at Bobbi Brown.
Bobbi Brown Wild Rose Shimmer Brick Compact is part of their Rose Gold 2012 collection and it is Limited Edition. I repeat, Limited Edition – which means if you miss it, you miss out!
It is housed in the Bobbi Brown classic sleek black casing and once opened, there is an in-built mirror inside the lid and you will find five beautiful pink ultra-luxe pure pearl pigments staring right back atcha. My eyes twinkled with delight when I saw them in the pan.
The shimmer factor is high but the particles are smaller than your average-Joe-shimmers so I like to think of it as micro-shimmer. I find the colours really soft and delicate, but buildable.
Here are the swatches of Bobbi Brown Wild Rose Shimmer Brick Compact on my NC-30 skin in daylight:
I am loving Bobbi Brown Wild Rose Shimmer Brick because of how multi-talented it is. It can be used as :-
- Blush – for a rosy glow
- Highlighter – for luminous skin
- Eyeshadow – for shimmery lids
- Lips – yes, seriously, it adds a nice glow on top of lipstick
The ouch factor is the $85 AUD price tag but for a limited edition Bobbi Brown beauty, it’s worth it. The other shade available is Rose Gold and I can’t wait to swatch it when it lands on Australia’s beauty counters in May 2012.
Funnily enough, the first Bobbi Brown product I owned is also called Rose Gold and it contained shimmer too! It’s their infamous lip gloss : Bobbi Brown Rose Gold Shimmer Lip Gloss
Are you a Bobbi Brown fan? What Bobbi Brown products do you like? I heard their gel eyeliner is amazing!
