Review & Swatches: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar

This is a review for Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick in Nectar. This powder retails for $38.00 and can be purchased from bobbibrowncosmetics.com or sephora.com.

Company’s Description

This shimmering, brush-on powder creates a soft, coral glow. Works well with neutral and peach blush shades.

Packaging: 9/10

Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Bricks come in reflective, square, plastic compacts that snap shut. You’ll also find a mirror on the inside.

The design is sleek and simple. My 2 small criticisms are that the packaging is more bulky than necessary (the pan inside is much smaller than the compact) and the compact gets fingerprints on it easily.

Quality: 9/10

This blush is a pinky coral color with golden shimmers. The color applies evenly, the shimmers definitely transfer onto the skin, and the blush lasts all day. Don’t layer this product too much; if you do, the powder will leave a noticeable texture on your skin.

This product is also versatile because it has strips of colors. For example, if you take a fluffy eye shadow brush, you can use the champagne color in the pan as a highlighter on your cheekbones.

The color looks lovely on the cheeks, but it could less shimmery. Because the product is so shimmery, you have to be light-handed when applying.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

The color applies smoothly and evenly, but don’t over-do it, otherwise you’ll look disco-ball-like and will get a noticeable texture to your skin.

Price: 9/10

Shimmer Bricks come with 10.3 g of product and cost $38.00 each. DiorSkin Shimmers cost $44.00 and give you 9.92 g of product. MAC Mineralize Blushes cost $22.00 and give you 3.5 g of blush. So even though $38.00 seems like a lot, the price is actually very reasonable because of how much product you get.

89.5/100

Toss if: you want a matte blush
Try if: you want a product you can use both as a highlighter and blush
Buy if: you’re looking for a shimmery, pink/coral blush

    I’ve always wanted to give these shimmer bricks a try, but not this particular shade. I’ve never really used any Bobbi Brown products.

    Interesting. Maybe this is why I think my MAC blushes make my skin look bad because I love ODing on blush :p

    That’s so pretty! Your advice on light application is well-taken. I tend to love the shimmer/glitter and overdo it!
