Despiting owning a few Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks, they were a product that I could never really get on board with. In all honesty I was never overly keen on the shade range or the finish. When the House of Fraser came in to my place of work with their Bobbi Brown stock, I was instantly drawn to the Brightening Bricks and the shade that particularly caught my eye was ‘Coral’. The Bobbi Brown Brightening Bricks are definitely a product I can get behind. Look how pretty it is. If there is one thing that I love, it is coral blush – I own countless coral shades of blusher as I find that they really work with my medium skin tone. Plus it is a very typical Erin kinda shade. The Brightening Bricks are a way of simply brushing on your glow – it is a bright coral blush blended with a subtle illuminator, blended (again) with a bronzer for warmth. It is essentially a bronzer/highlighter/blusher hybrid – a jack of all trades. I apply this very lightly as the colour payout is incredible and the blush is highly pigmented – you don’t want to walk around resembling coco the clown now, do you? Go lightly my friends! I give my blusher brush a nice but very light swirl around all of the colours and tones to dust across the cheeks. The finished result is just glorious – a nice warm colour, luminosity and a hint of warmth. What more could you want from a blusher? It gives your cheeks a soft flush whilst creating a subtle yet noticeable lit from within glow. If this product ran out, I would certainly replace it in a heartbeat. The quality is incredible, so refined without any chalkiness and it applies effortlessly and stays put all day. I have used it pretty much every day since it ended up in my possession and you only need to use a tiny amount meaning you get your pennies worth from it.
I’ve got my beady eyes on the Cranberry Brightening Brick next…
