Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Shimmer Brick - A quartet of pearlescent colors make up the Nude Glow shimmer brick. The colors are designed to highlight your skin for a lit-from-within luminescence. Though they're designed to highlight your face, all of the colors can be used as an eyeshadow, too.

A while back, when I was in India and when Bobbi Brown hadn't yet launched there, I had read an article or two (at least) recommending Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks as the must-buy product from the brand. Armed with all this "expert knowledge," shimmer bricks were the first product I had tried out on one of my earliest Sephora visits. The shimmer in the bricks was wayyyyyyy too much for me, and for the longest time I didn't bother looking at the Bobbi Brown section (thus my late discovery of the Pot Rouges, gel liners, and the corrector - my favorite products from the brand). Anywho, when I saw the Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Shimmer Brick (part of the holiday 2013 makeup collection) on the Nordstrom website, I imagined something just as sparkly and glittery. As it turns out, I was wrong.

This is such a pretty product, and the 4 shades of highlighters swatch beautifully and smoothly. No surprise then that these can be used as highlighters as well as eyeshadows. Bobbi Brown suggests using "fingertips to apply the lightest shade in the compact just under the brow bone," but the colors seem great for use as sheer washes of color all over the lids or even built up for a more metallic finish. I didn't buy it and haven't used it at all to comment on how well the shades would perform on the skin/eyelids, but the Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Shimmer Brick does seem to be a perfect pick for anyone who likes a smooth, subtle highlighted look. Do give these a try the next time you are at a Bobbi Brown counter.
