Why It's Different:

Handmade in Italy, this compact features superfine pigments that reflect radiance and light.

How To Use:

Sweep the Face Blender Brush (sold separately) through all five shades of the Shimmer Brick Compact and dust lightly on cheekbones after Blush. Focus on applying shimmer on the top of cheekbones—where light naturally hits the face—for the most flattering look.

I love love love this product.  I have used it to replace my blush.  I love the slight shimmer it has while being very subtle.  I actually just drag a brush from top to bottom for every day use.  I love the shimmer it gives which is enough to give some "personality" to an otherwise flat color on your cheek bones.  While the price tag is higher than other similar products, I feel like this little compact has lasted me a very long time.  I love that the shades match all skin tones.  Normally I am not a fan of products where colors are sitting directly next to each other in the same compact.  This is one of the only products I have that does this.  I love this product and highly recommend to anyone who wants a compact that can do just about anything (cheeks, highlights, eyes)

ALL TIME FAVORITE SHIMMER! This compact comes with a mirror where you can apply anywhere at anytime! This blends so well with any type of powder or foundation you use. The undertones on my face are a peach color which I LOVE because it makes my face nice and bright! Some people wonder if there is to much glitter in the shimmer but on the cheek bones it makes just the right amount of glitter!

I love the shimmer bricks :) when I’m in a hurry I put some over my cheeks and go! It’s easy to apply and blend but is incredibly pigmented!! I recommend using a stifled or fan brush. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they look flawless on. I just purchased my second one, and will continue to support and purchase Bobbi Brown

I got a set of these for Christmas a few years ago and I remember about 10 years back when these were all the rage.  Bobbi might have been first out of the gate trying to corner the unique highlighter market.  The shimmer bricks have a simply presentation of strips of colours that complement one another and can either be blended together or used individually to add shimmer to a look. 

I find these very dry in texture and borderline glittery (though, perhaps, more on the fine shimmer side of things).  They are not for the faint of heart and are very noticeable as a highlighter, which is great if that is the desired effect.  Having the shade gradient is unique, but there are so many brands doing it better.  I like my little set, but I don't think I'll be buying any others.

I am not a fan. I actually returned mine because it didn’t do what i expected it to do for the price and name brand. It was such s beautiful brick i was shocked at the lack of high light it actually put off. Maybe it was my skin tone or brushes at the time not sure. But i was greatly disappointed.

A more shimmery highlighter but still beautiful and glowy! Mix and select shades for a custom color every time or even throw this on your lids for an easy and summery look! A little goes a long way, the formula is beautiful and smooth as well! BOBBI BROWN Shimmer Brick Compact

I own a lot of Bobbi Brown and most of it is pretty pricey. This one wasn’t too bad, but it’s really small in size. I use it as a blush topper to give me some shimmer on a matte blush. The individual colors in the pan are pretty tiny, could only be isolated for possibly eyeshadow with a small eyeshadow brush. Since I use it as a topper, I just swirl my brush and it does the job. I recommend it as a topper if that is something you like to do; otherwise, it isn’t necessary and you could save your $$$ and pick up a necessity instead. Again, just my humble opinion.

This is sooooo beautiful! A little goes a long way, unless you like to really shine bright like a diamond, then you'll love this! All of the colors are beautiful and blend even more beautiful! I don't feel it lasted as long as the BECCA highlighter but, it applies just as nice! Its beautiful!

I really enjoy this little shimmer brick. Definitely it’s one where swatches don’t tell the whole story- I thought it would be too sparkly or scratchy but mixed with a brush it gives a lovely bronze glow. You also have the option of using the individual tones with a smaller brush but I rarely do that.
