Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Shimmer Brick ($45.00 for 0.22 oz.) is described as a “shimmering quartet of pearlescent colors.” It’s a medium-dark, bronze and copper-shimmered brown with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. There is a hint of gray to the browner coloring, but it is still a warm-toned hue. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (P) is less shimmery, warmer. Chanel Accent (84) (LE, $43.00) is rosier. Kevyn Aucoin Natura (P) is less shimmery. MAC Exotic Ember (LE, $25.00) is darker, browner. MAC Pressed Amber (LE, $25.00) is grayer. MAC Superb (LE, $30.00) is slightly rose-toned. Bobbi Brown Bahama (LE, $38.00) is rosier. See comparison swatches.

Shimmer Bricks can be used as face/cheek products, but they individual shades can also be used as eyeshadows. For the purposes of this review, it focuses on the product worn as a cheek product. I have included swatches of the individual shades for anyone who might be thinking about using it them as eyeshadows. It had good color payoff, and the texture of the powder is soft, finely-milled, and very blendable on the skin. It just slightly emphasized pores, but it was hardly noticeable if you weren’t really looking for it (as in, I don’t think anyone but the wearer would notice!). It wore almost eight hours on me before gradually fading. There was some patchiness after nine and a half hours.

I saw this at my local counter last week, but didn’t buy it. Glad I waited for your review, Christine. 🙂

By the way, I already have Accent, do you think I should still get this?

I got this and ended up returning it as I was really not that pleased with the pigmentation or color. I typically love BB products but lately they have been hit or miss for me

so gonna be mine omg its better than i imagined since the shimmer shadows didnt get real good review from anyone. im gonna grab this!

What I like about this palette is that the 4 segments are quite big. I can use them individually not just as eyeshadows, but as highlighters too. Brown is too dark for me to use as a highlighter, so it is a nice eyeshadow.
