Platinum Pink Shimmer Brick

Bobbi Brown’s Platinum Collection for Spring is a small launch that features a new shimmer brick, Platinum Pink ($40), four shades of Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow ($22), and three shades of (Shimmering) Lip Gloss ($20). The collection is available at Nordstrom.com, for those looking to buy online.

I know for most of you, the item that stands out is the shimmer brick, and thus, let’s review the shimmer brick, shall we?

With five stripes of color, shimmer bricks can be used as eyeshadows, highlighters, or blushers. They can be used wet or dry, because they’re very much like baked products. Platinum Pink has a very spring-into-summer kind of feel to me (almost more summer than spring, to be honest). I remember a few readers were concerned with a silver stripe of color, but not to fear, the silver is flecked so much with a yellow-gold sheen it won’t look awkward or misplaced on your face. The colors look pretty when swatched alone, and when swirled and swatched as one, you get a slightly-cool pastel pink shimmery shade.

I find I use my shimmer bricks mostly as blushers/highlighters, so I’m always more interested in seeing how they work together than alone. I do like the shade they create, and the color shows up so-so on my cheeks. It’s not an ultra deep pigmented pink on my cheeks, but it’s a subtle pink flush appropriate for daytime wear or to match bolder eyes/lips with. Shimmer bricks, by their nature, have a lot of shimmer. This one is definitely shimmery, but I wouldn’t call it glittery or chunky in its shimmer either. Of course, if you’re more into subtle shimmer/sheen, I’d pass on the shimmer bricks (if you aren’t able to try them in person, that is, otherwise, at least try!) and opt for something like Dior’s Rose Diamond or Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer, which have a more “sophisticated” sheen.
