Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Copper Diamond Review, Swatches, and Photos

So here you go a reply and answer to all your many e-mails!

Yay! Trust your dear old Muse to answer all your questions about the Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick!

Good news my dears, Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond is vastly different when compared to Gold! Excited? I am as I was prepared to be disappointed when I seen Copper Diamond up close and personal but disappointed I was not!

The name is slightly misleading..Copper Diamond…mmmm I wouldn’t necessarily fit the shades in to the copper or the diamond category! For the most part the palette is a super beautiful combination of beiges, browns, and creams. The finish does have a slight copper sheen to it but very slight in my opinion and leans more towards a golden bronze. It’s difficult to explain but it’s beautiful is all you really need to know.

I took swatches of each shade:

I’ve never been a true fan of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks but somehow, someway I have collected my fair share of them over the course of a year or so. Along the way I also ended up from really not liking them that much to actually enjoying them quite alot, so much so that some shades have even replaced my beloved MAC Mineralized Skinfinish!

The evolution of the Bobbi Brown Holiday Shimmer Brick has been a rather nice ride for the Muse. Her first purchase was the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Gold which was quickly followed up by the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Pink Quartz from Holiday 2007 and finally I’m ringing in the start of Holiday 2008 with the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Copper Diamond. I’ve actually hauled out all three palettes and did close up shots and comparisons of all of them so you can see the differences for yourself. One of the major differences would be packaging of course. The packaging has evolved from the classic black Bobbi Brown compact featuring a beautiful gold border inside to a pink border the next year. Always after the compact remains black and modest even though each was a limited edition piece there was nothing super special about the packaging aside from that pretty border inside. Last year Bobbi ditched the simple black pox and replaced it with a shiny bronze pink metallic package that caught and held the Muse’s eye. Finally this year the packaging undergoes a major revamp and comes out shining like a brand new penny! The compact has gone from the simplicity of black to a stunning copper gold palette with a beautiful metallic face place displaying the Bobbi Brown brand name on top. When I originally seen the compact in photos it kind of resembled a cardboard compact but that’s not the case at all. The compact is actually a tiny bit bigger then a normal shimmer brick plus with it’s new clothes it’s quite the little stunner! I like that even during pressing economic times that Bobbi Brown took the initiative to create beautiful new packaging for a beautiful new limited edition product and kept the price at $40 USD!

Do you need Copper Diamond? The Muse likes to think so. If you collect Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks you’re honestly going to want to purchase this one to add to your stash. If you’re thinking of purchasing one for the first time this is absolutely a great piece to start with. I really can’t help but Muse Approve it for purchase! If you were worried whether it was very like Gold rest assured it’s vastly different and just as beautiful.

    Aaaaaargh, Muse! You know our weaknesses! I had to purchase one of my very own (plus two glitter lip balms) right away, thank goodness for ebay, I saved quite a bit compared to prices here.
    I think the copper diamond brick looks a lot like the Sandstone Shimmerbrick released last summer. But I collect them all…
