The Bobbi Brown Shimmerbricks are the one makeup item that I will buy every time a new color comes out (usually once or twice a year) – I find them versatile and I do love each of them for different reasons. I am not a collector by nature, but make an exception for the Shimmerbrick.
That said, when I heard the new Shimmerbrick was Nude, I sighed. I figured it would be similar to the Beige and the Sandstone and the Copper Quartz and the Pink Quartz. And I commiserated with two fellow bloggers (Karley and the Curator) about how Bobbi really needs to come back out with the Brownie shimmerbrick, which was a beautiful plumy-beigey-brownie range of colors in one compact.
But, I still ordered the Nude Shimmerbrick. And when I opened it I was very pleased. No, it’s not the return of the Brownie shimmerbrick, but the Nude does have a slight pluminess woven into the beige. When I applied the Nude shimmerbrick, on my skintone it looks the way the Brownie does when I apply it lightly. I even did a side-by-side comparison.
Even if you are not still pining for Brownie to be re-released, do check out the Nude Shimmerbrick. It’s very versatile and, like all shimmerbricks, beautiful. Photo from Bobbi Brown website.
