Bronze

Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brighter, coppery gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. This is, of course, with the product swirled together, which is the practical way to use the product in the mini size (even small eye brushes are tedious given how narrow each strip is!). If you’re someone who tends to use their Shimmer Bricks as cheek highlighters and as individual eyeshadows, stick with the full-sized version. If you’re someone who just uses it as a highlighter, the mini is a nice way to save a bit of money as there is still a good amount of product that will take a good while to use up. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The consistency was dense, lightly creamy, and smooth to the touch. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

The full-sized version retails for $48.00 and contains 0.40 oz. of product. The mini version contains $16.80 worth of product, so it is only a better “value” for those who rarely, if ever, finish their products–it’s not unusual for minis to cost more per ounce than full-sized. The color and quality of the mini was consistent with the last version of this shade I tried (in a palette).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!
