Let’s start this review out by saying I live for Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks. They are among my favorite beauty products, and I have such fond memories affixed to each one and the time in my life when I used each one. So I didn’t know what to anticipate when I first tried Bobbi’s Brightening Finishing Powder, from the Brightening Nudes collection. And after using it, it’s still hard to describe the effect on skin. And I think it stems from some pre-conceived Shimmer Brick notions. Well, I’m dropping them, so you should too.
This is an entirely different product. I wouldn’t call it a highlighter. Or a cheek product. It truly is a finishing powder (which, um…duh…is in the product name) in that you can use it to complete your look. Brush it all over, anywhere you want. It adds something, albeit very hard to describe. I see somewhat of an airbrush finish, a polish, a softening. I like to sweep it over my eyelids, and all over. There’s some glitter in there, but it’s near impossible to see it on the skin unless you get reallyREALLy close. And even then, it feels like its doing something right.
It’s hard to put into words that “magic touch.” But that’s what I feel like it does. And I like the fancy velvet pouch it comes in. Super chic, Bobbi!
