Shimmer Brick: Bobbi Brown wannabe!

I’m quickly discovering the world of supermarket cosmetics and convincing you to pick up a lipgloss while navigating your way to the baked beans. I never knew you could get beauty products so cheaply that actually do a pretty good job. The latest offering from George at ASDA is this shimmer brick which gives a certain Bobbi Brown number a run for its money. The brick has five delicate shades of complementary pink and bronze, which can either be worn individually or applied using a big brush to create a multi-dimensional and natural glow. The shimmer catches the light without being too strong, helping to contour cheekbones and give a sunkissed look to skin.

The original Bobbi Brown shimmer brick retails for about £20 more than this one, but the pay-off is pretty similar. The pan itself isn’t as deep and the product is looser, but overall the effect can definitely be compared. I’m not entirely sure of the purpose of additional packaging, but the card sleeve makes this a little more glam than your usual supermarket purchase whilst adding a bit of protection for when you chuck in your bag. To use this in the best way, dab upwards on cheeks and on your nose/forehead where the sun would catch naturally, as well as giving your decollatage a subtle sweep of colour. ASDA is on to a winner with this range.

Available online here or in store priced £4.50.

    I love the Benefit style packaging and didn't want to pay a fortune for the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick so I may have to cheekily purchase this for my hols! Thanks so much for sharing xx

    I'm not sure how I feel about copycat products, I kind of feel bad for the original designer but when it's so much cheaper and it does the same thing it's hard not to love it. Good find. For the record I think that all highlighters and shimmery bronzers pretty much do the same trick!

    These are in my local Asda, however, they never seem to have the whole range of 6. Also, they don't have the lovely kitsch packaging:(
