Swatchtime: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks in Bronze

3/12/13

Who has been the victim of impulse shopping?
I certainly have. Sometimes I'll just be walking through Sephora (or insert favourite beauty store here) and some things will jump out at me and I'll have to buy them and then other things have a story behind them...
I'm pretty sure every beauty girl has has this moment of wonderment with cosmetics or skincare at some point in their young lives. You see someone you admire--a mother, older sister or a best friend--applying make-up and you really can't help but stare. It's really beautiful sight to watch a women put on her make-up for the day, akin to watching a beautiful Geisha paint her face
I had one of those moments watching a friend apply a particular product, which, in turn, made me stop in my tracks at Sephora and try it myself. In walks my impulse to buy and here I am, but this is one buy I don't regret! 
Beauty gurus, make-up artists and celebrities can be great sources of new cosmetics and ideas, but most of the time my friends are largest source of inspiration.

My friend is primarily the reason I bought the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks in Bronze:

I can't wait to try this, I've swatched it but I've yet to wear it for a day (I'm thinking this weekend!). My friend looks so beautiful when she applies it and she just had this lit from within glow. It's a little more pink that Gold Deposit, so if you have a more rose-y disposition you may want to be careful with this! It's also more fine-milled than Gold Deposit at first glance which gives a more natural lit-from-within-glow in my opinion. At the store, this gave my olive-toned skin a beautiful glow. It's pricey at 49$ and it can be found at Sephora stores or online at Sephora here. I'm planning on doing a more in-depth review on this product , so stay tuned!

What do you ladies think of this product? I'm so excited to have found it! Have you guys tried this?
