Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact Highlighter Review + Swatches

This is my first of monthly beauty reviews I will be doing on Style My Fro!

This April I have been using the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick highlighter in Bronze and it’s safe to say that I am impressed!

If you are completely new to the highlighting/strobing craze then this product could be a good place to start as it comes with 5 different shades to play with.

My Style Rating and review of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick (out of 5)

Ease of Use:

  • 3.5 – the highlighter is easy to use but my preference in ‘strobing’ technique of recent has been to use a big fluffy brush but you can pick one particular shade using a fan brush. That being said, all the shades mixed together still gives a gorgeous glow!

Finished Look:

  • 4.5 – I attempted a really boldly highlighted look but this product doesn’t give the brightest of glows and this is probably due to the way its formulated but it is perfect for everyday use and I have been wearing it to work all week!


  • 4.5 – Simple and elegant. I definitely think its quite handy to have a travel-sized highlighter and it comes with a mirror which is a great bonus.

Fro “Fleek-ability”:

  • – This highlighter compliments darker skin tones really well! This week I have been rocking a high puff and together with this glow I have been feeling myself! See pictures above for evidence!
