Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick Review & Swatches
I admit I didn’t think I needed the new Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick. This from a girl who has like 15 Shimmer Bricks…seriously, do I really need another one?
But…Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks are that type of product that you feel the need to collect them all!
Another reason I didn’t feel I needed the Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick was I wasn’t so sure how shades of lilac and rose in a Shimmer Brick would be on my skin tone….!
Take a look!
Turns out YOU need the Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick! Outside of the Wild Rose Shimmer Brick, Lilac Rose is possibly my fav color to date! This is actually completely wearable…looking at promo images it appeared more lilac than pink but it’s actually a very flattering array of pinks that will brighten up your face and chase away Winter with pops of Spring pink!
The five bars of pearlescent shimmer contain graduating shades of bright pink, golden pink, and icy pink pearl pigments mixed with a smidge of lilac pink create a perfect flush of shimmery glow on my cheeks. If you’re fairer of skin you’ll find it’ll work as a nice shade of glowing blush and if you’re darker you’ll be rewarded with a cooler pink gold glow.
Shimmer Bricks can be used on your face as well as a color wash on your lids. The formula has a smooth, silky texture with a shimmery finish. I typically use a kabuki and buff into my skin if I want to use it as a blush. As a highlighter I use a fan brush to apply on my cheek bones and on my eyes I sweep on with a sponge tip applicator (sponge applicators prevent shimmery fall out on cheeks!).
Don’t let Lilac Rose escape you, she’s a bit of a sleeper at a glance but once you use her you’ll be quite pleased with the pretty flush of pink shimmer she adds to your cheeks!
For my look below I used it all over my cheeks as a blusher.
