Get It or Forget It?: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact


Hello and welcome back, Beauties! Today’s Get It or Forget It is focused on something new to me from a brand I had never tried prior to this. Let’s see if the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is worth the hype. 

Highlighter is one of those things that, as time has gone by, I find myself falling more and more in love with. I’m always looking for various levels of glow in as many shades of gold as possible. Don’t judge my life, y’all.

So anyway, while at the mall a couple of weeks ago, I went to one of those cosmetics outlet stores and spotted a highlighter that I’d heard about for a while, the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact. I scooped up the mini brick in Bronze. I contemplated getting the regular size, but the mini spoke to me because it’s just so cute.

I mean, look at all the cuteness! As you can see, the shimmer brick has five different shades of highlight that you can either mix all together by swirling your brush across the entire compact, or you can sweep your brush across a couple colors for a specific shade. When you mix them all together, you get a golden shade that will compliment numerous skin tones.

What I really love about this product is that it gives you a nice glow without being over the top. It’s perfect for work or any other time you’re not trying to do the absolute most with your highlight. Another great thing about this product is that it doesn’t emphasize my pores or texture like some highlighters can. It blends into the skin so effortlessly and lasts well on the skin throughout the day.

So, do I think you should Get It or Forget It? I definitely think that, if you’re into a subtle but stunning glow that’s prefect for everyday wear, you should definitely Get It. The full size is $48 on the Bobbi Brown website, so if you’re able to find the mini, I definitely recommend picking it up. Because, let’s be honest, how often does anyone go through an entire, full size highlighter?

Let me know down below if you’ve tried this item, or anything else, from Bobbi Brown and what you think of it.

Until next time, Beauties! xoxo
