Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick ($42) had arrived. I was rewarded with this beauty!
Handmade in Italy, this award-winning editor's favorite highlights the skin - cheeks, eyes, anywhere - with five bars of pearlescent shimmer in Bobbi's freshest take on spring florals. Featuring bright pink, golden pink and icy pink pearl pigments, it's perfect for light or medium skin tones. I believe that the Shimmer Bricks are Bobbi Brown's greatest achievement as a cosmetics artist. While some would say her foundations are her crowning glory, I'm sticking with the Shimmer Bricks. If I could give awards for all-time makeup bests, Bobbi Brown's multitasking Shimmer Bricks would get an award.
I used a sponge-tipped applicator to show the blended shades at the top of my arm and a dense blush brush for the larger swatch below. I took my photos in full, mid-day sunshine, which emphasized the shimmering finish.
I purchased my Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick at Bloomingdale's. Since that day, I haven't looked for it at other Bobbi Brown counters. I'm sure it will arrive soon. It is not yet available on Bobbi Brown's Web site (as of this morning).
