Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for Body Review and Swatches

Large, giant, super size Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks should be illegal. I’ll happily roll around in the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for Body, so luscious!


Sure it’s a little expensive, try $75 bucks, but this super size Shimmer Brick is about twice the size of Bobbi’s normal facial Shimmer Bricks and incredibly pretty (15g in size versus 10.3g). Loves it!


Created for head-to-toe use, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for Body is a silky, lightweight formula made up of three shimmering shades of color to give a touch of a glamorous glow to arms, legs, décolleté, or if you’re being nuts use it on your face or as an eyeshadow, might as well get the buckage worth right?

My sister loves this thing and has tip toed into the Muse’s makeup room on many occasion to swipe it away. Cheeky older sisters that steal my Bobbi Brown makeup are so not cool, off with her head. I ended up letting her keep it and indulging in my own hehe!


The strips of color in this brick are dark bronze, champagne beige, and shimmering pink. The colors together cast a subtle glow of color onto your body. It’s quite an interesting effect as it doesn’t quite perform the way a normal Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick would. It makes arms and legs, especially tanned ones, glow with a pretty bronze sparkly finish.


Bobbi has a body kabuki brush to go along with this but I used my trusted Urban Decay Body Kabuki from last Summer’s Collection for brushing this on. I do suggest getting a good body brush for application as a tiny kabuki or any other facial brush won’t cut it. A larger size body brush sweeps color on evenly and smoothing for a perfect finish.

If you’re a sun goddess and you’re skin is tanned you’ll want to indulge in the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for Body as I think it compliments tanned skin beautifully, I should know my sister is crispy as burnt toast at the moment and we tested it out on her toasty mocha skin. As for me? I’ve been using it as an eyeshadow palette and casually dusting my décolleté with it when I’m wearing a low cut shirt, that draws attention!

Expensive yes? Beautiful, for sures. A Summer indulgence you may have to lean towards this season (just grab it quick it’s LE!).

Anyone haul it?

    Hello Isabella, would you, please, be so kind and make a pic of the label on the compact bottom for me?
    I bought one BBSB for body from a private seller, but I’m not sure now, if it’s a genuine product, because it smells weird to me. I own no other SB, so can’t compare it by myself.
    Thank you very, very much!!
    Best regards

    Lauren
