While in Mexico I was browsing around their department store Liverpool, without realising it I had drifted onto the beauty floor and as always I ended up browsing the Bobbi Brown counter. For over a year I have wanted the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, but I could never justify the £32 price tag for a product I didn't consider a necessity, specially as I am a poor intern.
A few years back I remember loving The Body Shop Shimmer bricks but their small selection meant there wasn't a great match for my skin tone. However as I use the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear even finish foundation I knew how great their skin matches can be.
As my dad was the holder of all our money while on holiday I thought why not see if I can get a little treat from him, I enquired about the price and my jaw hit the floor, it cost a little over 400 Pesos....£25!
I tried a few of their shades and chose 'Nectar' a lovely coral shade. It is meant to be worn over neutral or peachy blushers to give them a warm glow and a touch of highlighter which I am yet to try, mostly I am wearing it solo just for a little glow in the day. I am also yet to experiment with this on my eyes but I think the colours will be lovely in the summer.
The packaging is the usual lovely black, sleek, glossy compact with a mirror; perfect for storing and popping in your handbag. Its fantastic as it lasts all day and is definitely worth the price tag.
I can't believe I have lived this long without it.
