Shimmer with Bobbi Brown

There is no brand so iconic, unique and beautiful as Bobbi Brown. Created by the makeup artist herself, as someone who suffered from poor skin and lack of self esteem, she knows exactly what the average, makeup loving girl wants, and she created it.The shimmer brick in nectar is one of the first products I bought and loved, from Mecca of course. When I got it in the post in the fabulous pink box, I just about started jumping up and down. Seeing that iconic black compact with Bobbi Brown printed across it, and opening it up to see the shimmery, soft stripes of pink and nude, with the big mirror, there is just no greater joy for me, as I am a true beauty loving addict.Next morning, after double cleansing, exfoliating, applying serum, moisturiser, primer and foundation, my cheeks were ready to be adorned with the gorgeous shimmery nectar of that brick. I swept my big, fluffy kabuki brush across all the stripes of colour, and swept and blended it up and down my cheek bones, right up to my hair line, and back down again. You only need the tiniest amount, so even though it's $70 plus, it is so worth it.The results I got from that very first application were stunning, soft, pink and radiant cheeks. No streaks or clown like marks, the colour was just beautiful, it really was nectar, and it lasted all day long until my evening double cleanse.Five or six months later, and I've barely made a dent in the palette, even though I wear it most days, the colour, texture and formulation are incredible, so professional looking, it lasts all day long and you have the cheek bones of an angel.I love it, I recommend it and I will continue to go back to Bobbi Brown, on Mecca Cosmetica, for any future makeup purchases, so I can continue to be the confident, radiant and powerful beauty and makeup loving girl each and every day. Less user

Last Forever

I am a make-up minimalist if there ever was one. Because I use it so sparingly, when I decide to purchase something it must be a value for the result. The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is one such incredible value. The five color combination allows this brick to be used for various looks and purposes. I have used mine as a combination of eyeshadow base and eyeshadow. You can use various color combinations to change from a day to an evening eye. It can also be used as a bronzer with a litlte bit of shimmer. I also use it as blush when I travel so that I don't have to pack a separate blush. Because of the shimmer, you might now like it if you feel like your lids have lots of creases or wrinkles. The make-up stays put all day, and washes off easily with Bobbi's olive oil face wash. I love the versatility of this make up. I have owned mine for four years, and I still have plenty of each color available. « less

Looked Like Dirt on Skin

This did not blend well, and when it finally blended, the pigment was gone, only to leave chunky glitter. If it were a fine shimmer, I would not have returned it, but it was the glitter I used to see 10-15 years ago by Bonne Bell - chunks. user

The perfect candlelit glow - absolutely essential!

This gorgeous shimmer brick NEEDS to be made permanent! Even the packaging is beautiful and elegant, but when you open it you see that the pics online simply don't do this product justice!This shade imparts a healthy glow to the cheekbones without lots of colour (even on my light skin tone) so you can use it with or without a blush.I'd say it gives a healthy-looking warm-toned glow, which should suit most people. It's one of those products that you're not sure you need until you actually own it, and then you can't imagine life without it! A bit like the other shimmer bricks actually, but I honestly think this is the most universal shade.It's very easy to apply, either with a denser brush for a more intense finish or a looser bristled brush to get a more subtle effect. I tend to brush it lightly over my cheekbones on top of another blush, or pair it with a contouring blush to give that super duper cheekbones effect!The wear time is average, and I'd be lying if I said it lasts through a whole day at work. But then, most things don't! Reapplying it is fine as you get a lot of product so it won't run out for ages, but it's a bit big and heavy to take everywhere in my handbag... I'm always wishing for travel-sized shimmer bricks!All in all, a really gorgeous shimmer brick which is hard to fully appreciate without trying it on. Perfect finishing touch for a nice evening or day out! Less user

Perfect glowy-dewy look even on oily skin!

Skin:- Fair to medium- Asian like skin (half Chinese and half Filipino)- I have used this product from summer to rainy season, but the SHIMMER BRICK nectar doesn't bother on what type of skin I'm having during these seasons.I have been scouting between rose and nectar. Luckily I was, my friend already has the rose and she let me take it home overnight so I can surely decide if it will be great on me.Rose was too silvery for me and I looked sort of washed out to like a trying hard shimmer look and that turned down rose.I have a friend with me and we finally checked out BOBBI BROWN and asked if I could try on the nectar. I cannot really appreciate the application because Mall lights are really deceiving.A couple of days before my birthday that friend gave me BOBBI BROWN SHIMMER BRICK in nectar and after trying it I never had two thoughts about not using it.It seems that all the colors really blend well to every color of the bricks and it makes such perfect combination at all.Upon application I can really see how my skin turns dewy and glowy. The peach-pink and gold sort of becomes a part of you cheeks; so it doesn't look like chalky or cakey.It looks so natural. I often go with SHIMMER BRICK Nectar or if I want just another color I can just put a light touch of blush and over it the nectar, and either way my cheeks look glowing and dewy and healthy. Yes! That healthy glow.Plus it doesn't come off easily. It last like 6 hours? Well that depends on how much you put on. Well, will see when I start going on duty.And for the first time, my sister who always says, "it's ok", finally said "it's beautiful"!I'm so loving this shimmer brick! A must have and a staple!By the way, my skin doesn't look oily with this as a blush. So this is why it's really a must have! « less
