I loved the look of the Bobbi Brown Platinum Pink Shimmerbrick when I first saw pictures. It was so pretty! Then when I was passing a Bobbi Brown counter recently, I checked it out.
The limited edition Platinum Pink Shimmerbrick is indeed pretty. Look at those stripes of colour! It reminded me of Guerlain Meteorites – the same sort of illuminating colours but would they have the same sort of soft diffused illuminating effect that Guerlain Meteorites gives?
Unfortunately the answer is no.
The Platinum Pink shimmerbrick swatches pure white shimmer (shimmer-brick duh! 😛 ) and that’s it. No pink tones to it at all. High shimmer highlighter is what it is. Nice if you don’t have a highlighter and can use a very very light hand to avoid looking oily and greasy. Not nice if you can’t.
If you collect shimmerbricks this one will be up your alley as its limited edition. Otherwise, at RM145 a brick, I’m thinking it’s a little overpriced.
How are you for shimmerbricks? Do you own any?
I own 2 – Bronze and Brownie – and its all I can do to avoid looking like a discoball or greaseball when I use it. Still, I can’t quite give them up yet because when they DO work, they are so pretty! 😛
