Very pigmented

I got this as a gift from my sister. I love the fact that you can use it all at the same time or you can use it strip by strip. I used the lightest one as a highlighter. Perfect for my browbone and cheekbones. And the others as my warmer and bronzers. Sometimes i use it on my eyes as well. This product is pigmented and easily blendable with its creamy formula.

Multi-Purpose and Loves any skin-tone

This multi-purpose shimmer brick compact works as a blush, contour, highlighter, and bronzer in 1. The shades compliment any skin color or type - including mine, a morena sensitive-dry skin. It's especially good when you just went to the beach as it compliments your sun-kissed look. Just apply a perfect base and finish with this. And even after your tan has faded, it still gives you the summer look. This along with a handy balm/gloss, bb cream, and VMV Armada sunblock are my beach bestfriends.

Very good!

I love using this Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact on my clients because this adds a great subtle shimmers on the cheek bones which makes the skin look so much more radiant and healthy looking. I have been using mine fro years now and I still have not hit pan.

Adore this!

I just love this product!! All flattering shimmery shades are here which would undoubtingly help in highlighting my face along with putting warmth in it. It definitely is on the pricey side but to think of the quality and pigmentation, everything becomes so much more worth it. Good must buy if with high end budget.

My go-to blush!

I've had this for years, and I must say that this is a good investment because 1) it lasts forever, and 2) it is multipurpose. The sheen isn't too glittery, and it gives me a nice, dewy look. Each shade on the brick can be used as an eyelid color, and the lightest shade can be used as a highlighter, too. I love using this daily!

Lasts long and strong

This product lasts you long time. I've had mine for over two years now and it's still in tact. I find myself using this as both a highlighter and an eyeshadow. Very pigmented. I recommend using this with a setting spray or a damp brush to really give you a more pigmented swatch :)

Must have!

Even before strobing and intense highlighting was a thing, I love using this Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact all over my cheeks because I love the fact that this palette really adds warmth and color to my cheeks while adding a little bit of radiance to my over all look.

Very Nice!

On days when I want to look extra dewy but without ending up looking like a disco ball, I use this Shimmer Brick Compact from Bobbi Brown with a light hand. I love wearing this on my cheeks alone or layered with a satin blush. I just like how it makes my skin look more radiant.

good investment; great color payoff, isn't chalky, and great packaging

I own both the Bobbi Brown Shimmer
Bricks and its dupe, the Revlon Highlighting Palette. But I love the Shimmer Bricks more because of many reasons. First is its good color pay off. Second, shades are much closer than Revlon Palette. They are more blendable together. So they work well for both individual swiping or for swirling all shades together. Third, Bobbi Brown is the real winner here coz they're not chalky which makes it easier to blend. Fourth, Shimmer Brick Compact's packaging is way better than Revlon's. This was one of the first few high end cosmetics I bought since I don't like spending that much on makeup. But ever since I started studying makeup I learned that quality is still better quantity. And that most high end products have a reason why they're more expensive than the others.

adds a nice glow to the skin without being overly shimmery

This is the first product that comes to my mind every time I think about Bobbi Brown. This is like Orgasm blush to Nars. This is the very first product that made me take the plunge and go wild with Bobbi Brown products. I like that it really adds a nice glow to the skin without being overly shimmery.

Does almost everything

I received this as a gift and didn't really know what to do with it at first. I soon learned that it pretty much does everything. It became a lazy girl go to product. Id use the strips of color individually as eye shadow, and then swirl my brush into the compact for a light bronzy glow. It's got just enough color in it to wake up your skin. The fine shimmer in this product also makes it appropriate for normal work day use (especially for cheating an "I got 8 hours of sleep" look) although it can easily be built up for a supermodel glow (if that's what you're after.) Definitely worth your money.

Shiny shimmery splendid!

When I tan after coming from a beach trip this shimmer brick from Bobbi Brown is the best product to use to keep the sunkissed glowing look a little bit longer. I also use this as a blush & it just looks beautiful. When I settle back into my fair-medium color I use this as a bronzer and it still does a wonderful job. On days when I want a light wash of color on my eyes I even use this as an eye shadow and it brightens up my peepers! I love that its multi-purpose (at least to me!) and like most Bobbi Brown products, the quality is just great.

Love at first try

LOVE at first swipe. I love how it gives me elegant glow and elevates my cheek bones. There are a lot of dupes out there but I think nothing comes close to the real product. The formula is soft, buttery and the sheen is very subtle. I do have to make sure to only use it in small doses. The compact packs a lot of product, I reckon that it would last me for years!

Worth every penny

This is my favorite shimmer brick! I picked this up and bought the one from Body Shop too. This is more subtle and the glow is more natural looking than the one from the Body Shop. The texture is so creamy and this is very pigmented so a little dip of a brush is good. You can swish the shades altogether or use the shades one-by-one for highlighting. This is worth every penny!

This gets so much hype on Youtube and is worth every penny, let me tell you! I have mine in Beige and omg, it's super smooth, pigmented as fuuudge, and gives the skin that JLO glow. Let me tell you, it's worth every penny as it will probably last you a long time. Love this product! One of my holy grail highlighters. I even use this as an eyeshadow sometimes when I'm on the go.

Award winning product

Saw this on a magazine review once and knew I had to get it. I like blush/bronzer palettes because they give more value to your money. You get to experiment with more shades and are multipurpose. The white shade I use for highlighting, even on the eye area as well.

Not overly shimmery

I have one in my stash and it has been one of my fave go-to highlighters. I like that despite its name, this Bobbi Brown Shimmer brick compact is not overly shimmery on my skin, It just warms my skin nicely while adding that glow from within look. Great product! No wonder a ton of people go gaga over this product!

Perfect match

Blush, bronzer, and highlighter in one. That is what Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick Compact offers. The Bronze shade perfectly matches my skin. it is actually suitable for any skin color. it is pigmented and just a few sweeps can already give that natural glow. It is a bit pricey but I find it really worth it.

The Only Highlighter You'll Need

I bought this last December. I've been using it everyday this year. I've yet to make a dent in it. You get so much product in this! It stays put all day on your face and gives it that radiance that makes you look like you're glowing. This is highly recommended as well for femmes with oily skin as the powder helps control sebum, allowing you to have that yummy glow and shine throughout the day with a few blotting sessions. :)

Worth it!

This is one terrific product because it serves many uses! I like the neutral colors and they complement my skintone. I usually use as a blush and bronzer but have also used these as eyeshadows. Staying power is great and colors are pigmented.
