Shimmer & Gold

Oh Bobbi Brown, how I love you…

Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick One of my all time (read: staple) favorite products is the Shimmer Brick Compact by Bobbi Brown. This 5 color item is super versatile because you can use it on your cheeks and eyes so you don’t have to feel too guilty for forking over 38 big ones! I originally fell in love with this when they first released it in this beautiful bronze color. The shimmer can look a bit daunting but when blended in well you will get nothing but a glamorous look that will work for both day and night. The line subsequently came out with drool worthy colors like peony and apricot. I am still mad I don’t own every single one. I promise you, if you try this, you will receive compliments galore.

Bobbi Brown  Diamond Dust Another yummy product is Diamond Dust. This item is so popular that you may have to wait for your cherry, little package of delight. Let me tell you, though, it is so worth it. Normally I don’t wear a lot of gold — makeup or otherwise — because it doesn’t look great with my skin but I love to participate in the new trends and this is a cool and easy way to do so. This richly pigmented powder opened up my eyes and made me look more awake. Right now, Gilded is the only color the line has created but they are debuting 5 new shades later this month. I, for one, cannot wait!
