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.
