Bobbi Brown Wild Rose Shimmer Brick ($39.00 for 0.40 oz.) has five shimmery strips of pink-tinted shades that can be used as a blush or as an eyeshadow. It’s designed to highlight the skin with “pearlescent shimmer.” The individual strips include: a rosy light-medium pink with a frosted metallic sheen, pink-shimmered peach-orange with a frosted metallic sheen, warm-toned dirty pink with a frosted metallic sheen, warm-toned pink with orange undertones and a frosted metallic sheen (very similar to the one before it), and light rose pink with a frosted metallic sheen.

When everything is swirled together, it takes on a rosy champagne-bronze color. It looks a lot like MAC Blonde, which may have a slight orange tint in comparison. Bobbi Brown Rose Gold is warmer, bronzy; it doesn’t have the same pink element that this shade has.

Applied, it highlights and adds a touch of warm pink color to cheeks with lots of shimmer and sheen. Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Bricks tend to be high shimmer, so if you prefer subtler, more refined highlighters, I would look elsewhere. If you love products like MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes, you’ll probably like the Shimmer Bricks. The high shimmer emphasizes pores slightly–it’s not off-putting enough in lieu of the glowy sheen it delivers, because it’s not noticeable from a normal viewing distance.

When I wore this shade to see how long it would wear for, it hung on well for seven hours and looked a little faded after eight hours. The powder itself has a soft texture that’s very shimmery and metallic-like, but it never feels gritty, despite the amount of shimmer in the product. This product also looks really lovely wet, which enables you to bring out the metallic sheen for a very glitzy look.

Hey Christine, did you use this as a highlighter and also blush in this picture? Also, what’s on your lips? It’s super gorgeous (reminds me of Tarina Tarantino Showroom, but I could be way off the mark)!

I used this on the cheeks, so it’s just the swirled color in one place, not separated out as a highlighter/blush.

I think it may be Bobbi Brown Angel Pink!

I think it’s really pretty how the top of your cheekbones naturally catches the light! And great, Bobbi Brown is available here so I’ll check Angel Pink out. Thanks Christine 🙂

Since I’m new to your posts, I must say that I am very impressed with your thorough review, the photos and your rating system. I’m looking forward to exploring your reviews more.

Love Love it! I don’t usually apply it wet– do you have any tips for successful wet application? Also, what shade of lipgloss are you wearing in the photo/ Its also very pretty!

Christine, do you think this would emphasize flaws other than pores? I have fine bumps on my cheek area, and that’s my big struggle with any kind of shimmer in that area. (But it depends: I can use theBalm’s Mary-Lou Manizer in that area without calling attention to the bumps, but Nars’ Albatross was just like well, hello there, bumps!)

I’m so surprised – Albatross is pretty finely-milled, and between Mary-Lou Manizer and Albatross, I’m shocked one would emphasize and one wouldn’t! I’m going to say the Shimmer Bricks are more like Albatross than they would be Mary-Lou. Mary-Lou is really dense and buttery, which might be the key to a highlighter working for you, and while this is smooth, it’s not the same dense, buttery texture of theBalm’s powder products.
