I sometimes wonder who names my favorite lipstick or my favorite product….I mean do they hire one specific person to name an entire line of lipsticks?
“Hey here’s our newest lipstick line, name these k?”
That would be my dream job.
Like who named NARS Orgasm, Orgasm? Or Super Orgasm?
Although I was thinking some glamorous lady with a corner office and an incredible view of Manhattan was sitting behind her ultra chic desk thinking up names for products….
That isn’t actually the case!
I remember my first blush, it was a mosaic peach shade, purchased at the drugstore for the very high price of $9.99 (that was high way back when). I think it was by Black Opal? I was about 16 at the time and adored it. It was thee perfect shade of gorgeous. Being a teenager and not knowing a ton about makeup I continued to use said blush well into my senior year of high school but one day I proceeded to drop it on the floor. I was devastated to say the least but hey, no worries, head to the drug store, pick up another one, and call it a day. Sadly, after searching and searching I couldn’t find it. So I did a little sleuthing, called the company, and proceeded to learn that it was discontinued. That was my first real discontinued woe. I graduated from high school that year and proceeded to spend the next several of my college years trying to replicate the finish and color of that blush with many, many, many blush purchases.
Sadly, I never did find a shade like it.
Dontcha hate that feeling? I was gutted to say the least and I wonder if someone handed it to be right now if I’d feel it was as wonderful or was it just my youthful makeup dreams?
The good news?

Ah Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks! So beautiful but so challenging for me to use. I’m very heavy handed so I tend to over do highlighters plus having a rounder face I never really know exactly where to put these. I normally smile really big and bounce my blush brush on the apples of my cheeks. Probably the completely wrong technique for blush and highlighter application but I’m no expert!
But…there’s just something about Shimmer Bricks. I feel like I NEED to collect every single one that comes out and of course the new Shimmer Bricks released with the Rose Gold Collection are just stunning.
Take a peek!
