I’m adding this review because I am currently panning this product and have major pan in it. Having used it consistently for this year, I feel I can give it a fair appraisal.
This product was one of the first high end products I have ever owned. I remember my husband treating me to this in John Lewis and I remember he paid £47 for it.
I remember not being overly impressed by it at first, perhaps I thought it was meant to be more bronzey. I’m pretty sure that it languished in my makeup bag for a long time until this year when I decided I needed to get some real use out of it. I wouldn’t throw it away for sentimental purposes.
Anyway, having used it consistently I’ve gained a new appreciation for it. I use it as eyeshadow and highlighter and love the subtlety of it and am impressed that it has not diminished in quality after all this time.
When it’s gone though, I’ll consider it done and won’t repurchase. It is not unique for I have similar highlighter.

This is the perfect glow blush to wear on a night out, or when you have a good tan going on. It's the perfect amount of shimmer without it looking like highlighter and there is a natural amount of pink and bronze for a sun kissed glow. I'm just annoyed because the bricks have all fallen out and broken and I had to do a DIY repair on it - now it's not the same! :(

I so wanted to love this but I don’t, it’s a little too glittery for my taste. I purchased mine in bronze which I also find to be a little too dark. I does however; make for a good eyeshadow so all is not lost. At £35 i think it’s expensive and I think if I was search for a glow I would rate becca’s products far higher compatible price but Becca out perform this.

I can't live without my shimmer brick in beige not only does this illuminate my cheeks but it's so versatile high lighting different areas of my face but it's also great to double up as an eye shadow too! The staying power of this little gem is unreal lasts all day... No unnecessary touch ups I can put it on first thing and leave it on the dresser knowing I won't need it again that day hallelujah!!! Yes it's a bit of a splurge but then again when you find a product that suits you so well it's worth the investment my make up bag would not be the same without it girls give it a go!

A lot of great reviews I'd read re this product but sadly for me it didn't live it up to hype. Too shimmery for my pale skin - I looked like i'd dipped my face my face in glitter! Whilst it has staying power, it's not a product I'll find myself using again - perhaps as an eye shadow and shoulders only, but certainly not anywhere else on my face.

I am in my mid 30's with dry, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is dark brown, dry with coarse texture.
I have this in the bronze version and the coverage is quite good, maybe not quite pigmented enough for my liking but that is just because I like quite bold looks. The shimmer does last all day though despite the weakness in the colour.

I have this in the neutral pink and bronze palettes. I love them both for an evening or summer look. They sweep easily over cheeks and have a subtle glow if applied lightly. I now finish off my look by sweeping the remainder of product over my eyelids which is very effective.

This product makes me feel like a queen. The iridescent glow is just divine. I use it as a highlighter on my cheekbones and I also love to use the individual colours on my eyelids. There is a lovely soft shimmer, with delicate golden tones which brighten up my make up perfectly. Only downside is the brick falls apart quite easily so be careful when handling!

Personally, I like to use this as a highlighter and for eyeshadows individually. The glow is so natural and radiant and you really can't go wrong. I find that this is too shimmery for bronzing but a definite recommendation for highlighting. The quality is brilliant and the pigment is lovely, but I wouldn't repurchase as Revlon does a good dupe of this for £10.

Great product! You can use for multiple purposes such as highlight and eyeshadow not just a boring old bronzer. Although as a bronzer alone, for me it's slightly too shimmery and had a very warm tone. But over all a lovely product.

i bought the pink shimmer brick by bobbi brown on boxing day and so far i am in love with it! You don't need to pile loads on just a few swipes on top if the cheek bone can make your face brighten and look highlighted; i also love the way it can be used for multiple things, eyeshadow, highlight, etc.. i would definitely buy this again without a doubt. The only issue really is the price.
