Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in 'Nectar' is one of the brand's best selling shimmer brick compacts that is made up of five different shades of pink & peach with a lot of added gold shimmer. I prefer to swirl all the shades around and use it as a highlight after blush or instead of blush for a gorgeous peachy pink glow with a gold sheen. This stuff is quite shimmery & hella pigmented. The shimmer is not too chunky and a little dusting along the cheekbones will not make you look so much like a disco ball. But, I would still go easy on it especially since too much shimmer emphasizes my pores. With these kinda highlighters, I prefer just a light sweep with a blush brush or better yet, a stippling brush.


Picking up just one color from the compact is quite a task and I always somehow manage to mix it up with the others. The packaging is very classy and elegant with a big mirror inside for touch ups. The only gripe is the amount of fall out that occurs every time I swirl the colors together. There is quite a bit of fall out which makes it difficult to travel with. For $38, there's a lot of product in there that would probably last you a lifetime.


 I love it & would definitely recommend it if you love super shimmery peachy highlighters that also add a golden glow! If you want something more bronzy, the Shimmer Brick Compact in Bronze is an awesome pick.
Have you tried Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks? Do you like Nectar? What other shades do you like?

  16. Thanks Carla! I'm sure it'll look great on lighter skin tones as well. And maybe a tad better with a tan, as you say :)
