Highlighters are not a staple part of my make up routine. However, while recently browsing in Arnotts, I walked past this and actually backtracked to get a closer look. Those colours, wow! I couldn't get enough of this! The lovely sales lady at Bobbi Brown (her name was Jen) let me see how this looked on, and showed me how best to use it. I was absolutely sold. They are not cheap at €42 a go, but I know this will last me years!
These colours are just ideal to me! This shimmer brick "Apricot" is from the new Nectar and Nude collection. I love it.
The individual shades
and blended together
I think it is the nicest flush of peach/gold, it's shimmery without being a total glitterball. I have also used the lighter colours to highlight the inner corners of my eyes. I guess you could use the whole palette as shimmery eyeshadows, but I have not tried it myself.
This is my first foray into the world of Bobbi Brown. This is definitely a luxury brand. The packaging of the shimmer brick is so sturdy, it is quite large too with a decent sized mirror in the compact. I would be afraid to travel with this incase something happened to it!
I really love how this looks on me and has totally changed my opinion with regards to highlighting products. The other shades in the shimmer bricks look absolutely amazing too, but I really love peaches and corals, so for me it was love at first sight with "Apricot"!
