Hello Sunshine! Today i want to share with you something from the fashion week catwalk, that you can wear every day as part of your beauty statement, the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick.
Creates a soft, rosy glow. Works well with neutral, pink and rose blush shades.

“Swept over cheeks or dabbed on lips, nothing lights up the face like Shimmer”- Bobbi Brown

The first of its kind, this Bobbi Brown original was envisioned by Bobbi during fashion week when she was looking for a product that would create a flattering highlight & luminous glow on skin on the runway. Equally stunning in the pan as it is on skin, this shimmering brush-on powder was inspired by shimmer chalks, a product that Bobbi launched as part of her Color Options. Bobbi had the idea to press the chalks together in one pan to be used individually on the eyes or swirled together to create a flattering highlighter for the face.  A wet slurry and unique baking process allows this powder to go on fresh & clean for a soft sheer glow.
Even with the dozens of imitations we find today, nothing compares to the superior quality and personal care taken into the craft of this distinct product. Each brick is handmade in Italy and involves a unique manufacturing practice that involves a wet slurry powder and the first terracotta oven used for the double baking process. Each step is carefully orchestrated and maneuvered by hand adding to the refinement & special look of this product.

Bobbi’s Shimmer Brick Compact delivers saturated, pearly color with a smooth, velvety finish. For a shimmering glow, sweep the Face Blender Brush across all 5 shades and lightly dust cheeks and forehead for a lit-from-within glow. Or, use an eye shadow brush to apply an individual shade to the eyes from lash to crease for a subtle iridescent look on eyes.

How It’s Made

To create her iconic Shimmer Brick, Bobbi uses ultra luxe, pure pearl pigments. Five different shades of pigment are pressed into one pan using a unique baking process. The result is a lightweight powder that glides on effortlessly and delivers a shimmery finish that’s both pretty and modern.

Who’s It For

For anyone who wants to achieve an all-over shimmering glow, the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick (Php 2,550) would be heaven sent. It is flattering to all skin tones, and has a powder formula that delivers the perfect amount of shimmer to the eyes or face. Multi-functional and very enchanting, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is a must-have for a quick perk-me-up glow! Simply apply it where light naturally hits the face: upper cheekbone, under browbone; and use the individual eye shades to create an innocent yet captivating look for your eyes.
