Shimmerbrick in rose.

I recently bought her LE shadow palette (stonewashed nudes collection) and it is absolutely gorgeous. The colors are beautiful.....I am seriously considering buying a back-up.

Oh, have you smelled her Beach perfume/lotion? Divine.....

Re: Bobbi Brown Must-haves & recs??

I just bought the BB eyeshadow "Gunmetal" yesterday.....omg, it's LOVE! Sooo creamy and smooth, very intensely pigmented. Pricier than MAC but you actually get almost double the amount so it's fine. I can't really see myself ever finishing it anyway, haha, the pots are pretty big.

Oh, does anyone have any brushes from them? First I was gonna get the MAC 219 pencil, but yesterday I checked out the eye smudge brush and the bristles felt sooo much softer and denser! Anyone have this brush??



I want to get a Shimmerbrick as well, but they cost $50 US here! How much are they in the States?? I can't see prices on the website...

Rose Shimmerbrick is definitely a must have. I also look forward to their palettes. The colours for lips, eyes and cheeks are always so wearable.

Another vote for the Shimmerbricks here
I have the beige one and I use it mainly as e/s. Great colors and the staying power is amazing. The bronzers are really nice too, I have #2, a matte neutral that dosen't turn orange.

I purchased both the Chocolate palette and the Stonewashed Nudes, and swapped both away. Her shadows just don't work for me. They apply chalky and don't blend well. I know other people love them, though.

I do like her blush, shimmerbricks, and gel liner.

I love this brush! I first purchased it as a crease brush, which is where I use it the most but found that it is just as good for applying color under the eye as well. Love her shimmerbricks, glosses, and blush. Just ordered the Stonewashed Nudes Palette and can't wait to get it. She also has great skincare products. I put my love of Bobbi Brown before MAC, she just does not do as many collections as MAC does.

I haven't bought any BB single e/s yet, but they seem interesting. I might take a look at them soon! Isn't Gunmetal too shimmery BTW?

Gunmetal is a metallic e/s so it's very shimmery / sheen (without sparkles though). I love it. I think most of my e/s are a metallic finish because I love the look of it.

The new l/e metallics are gorgeous, but the price is $45!

I own a lot of her mattes. They are the top of the line. You don't need much and they are smooth textured. Her blushes are the same way. A little bit goes a long way.

Also, I own one of her foundations, two shimmer bricks, several eye pencils, several lipsticks, several lip pencils, a foundation base moisturizer, a concealer, and the eye brightener.

I really like her line. I am seriously debating the metallics. They are so freaking beautiful.

There are several m/up palettes that I want too. One is the bridal palette and the other (can't remember the name) looks great for evening.

I think the quality of her products are superior to MAC, but the colour palette is not as diverse and her products are quite pricey.

*~*I love their lip tints!!!! They are sheer, really moisturizing, and they have SPF 15. They smell really good too (a hint of peppermint). I have 2 already & I plan on buying more!!*~*

I went to a Sephora in Paris and I have seen the Gunmetal e/s and other ones at a Bobbi Brown counter: it looked very nice indeed :nod: I've tested it on my hand and the texture was really smooth. So now I'm interested in buying some of them... I looked at Raisin and Sapphire too, I'm at a dead end now

I totally agree with you.

I am looking at the back of my BB Sterling Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow. It states it is 2.6g. My M.A.C. Blackberry Matte Eye Shadow states it is 1.5g. Perhaps, that's reason for her prices.


Still, I am freaking out about the $45 price for the metallic limited edition e/s. I want two of them.

I think anything from her skincare line is great, especially those buffing grains.

For makeup, I love the lipglosses and the metallics palettes are to die for!!

~ BB's Metallics eyeshadow trios are GORGEOUS!! The shades are beautifully matched, have excellent pigmentation, and they blend like a dream! (I speak more particularly of the Velvet Plum and Burnt Sugar pallettes.. but Forest is really beautiful too, especially for smokey eyes, although maybe more difficult to blend because of how dark/pigmented all 3 colours are).

~ Shimmerbricks are nothing short of amazing!

I don't own any other BB products, but I have passed by the BB counter countless times and dabbled with some of the products, and the creamshadows are just gorgeous! I'm in love with Galaxy creamshadow.. just beautiful!
