New blush/Highlighter purchase from Nars & Bobbi Brown




Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick Set with a mini face blender blush (Limited Edition) - purchased this item from Strawberrynet for $47.50 U.S.

The picture (attached) -the swatches from the top to the bottom of the blush palette.  The white shimmer on top cannot be shown in the picture.

It's a very nice bronzer with a lot of gold shimmers (glitters).    It gives a nice sunkissed glow on skin. The lighter colours can be used as highlighter for eye contour, forehead , under browbone. The middle part can be used as contour for face. Remember just to slight tap it, as the colours are very pigmented.   The colours are good for use as eyeshadows as well.



My very first blush and highlighter from MAC (Limited Edition): Happy together ($26 CAN) & By Candlelight (forgot about the price of this one, but I think that this is more expensive than the Happy Together).  My first product of MAC is the Studio Fix foundation, and I found that it was too drying on my skin.  Then, I have strayed away from MAC and move on to the other brands.

Anyways, I got hooked on to the "Happy Together" when I saw the blog reviews. I really love the sheen peachy/coral colour that Happy together offers.  It glows on my skin but without glitters.  The colour is more subtle that I can wear these two products to work.  The "By Candlelight" is in Golden pink that gives a very nice warm glow as highlighter.

Colours are very pigmented.  A little goes a long way.

It has been ages since I last purchased something from MAC! The mineralized products from MAC are oh so popular but I can never bring myself to splurge on them (they are super overpriced over here -.-)

I'd love to see these babies on you! FOTD please? =]

Hi Shop N' Chomp:

I agree with you! BB shimmer Brick is so pretty. However, I have to be very careful using this blush for work. I only dap it little over my other blush.
