        I'm in my late 50s and struggling with the blush thing. My black hair and light olive skin have turned to black hair with silver streaks and just plain flat fair skin, and I'm struggling with dryness. Blusher always has been the one thing I wouldn't leave the house without, because I don't naturally blush under any circumstances. Zero color in my cheeks. I wanted to find blush for the older, wiser me and leave behind the days of being able to wear the plummiest stuff. I want a suggestion of appropriate color that looks natural and blends well. That or something that lets me rock, but in an age-appropriate way.

        I waded in and bought this after reading reviews from other women who said that it truly did shimmer, or produce a luscious sheen, rather than sprinkling glitter all over their faces.

        They were so, so right. I bought the recommended brush, made two light sweeps and hit the cheekbones. Beautiful. It's soft, soft color (watch the application and don't go overboard) and like magic on a brush. I don't really have wrinkles, although the texture of my skin has changed for the worse - if I had wrinkles, I'd still use this. Personally, I love laugh lines around the eyes. If I had them, I'd give them a tiny sweep of this (don't know if Bobbi would recommend that though).

        This really does produce a healthy, inviting glow - sort of an I'm-driving-my-sportscar-with-the-top-down-and-I-just-had-a-fabulous date look.

        This is the little black dress of blushers - kind of a secret weapon.

        I have been a loyal Bobbi customer for 11 years however I am compelled to write a review about the shimmer brick. Although I absolutely LOVE the color, the amount of shimmer (I wear it daily and have received many compliments) and how fast you can apply some and look polished; the last 2 shimmer bricks I purchased have crumbled bit by bit when they were not even half used. I don't mind paying a premium price for a high quality, long-lasting product, but when I cannot even use half of it before it falls out of the compact, that is unsatisfactory. I am extremely disappointed with the quality of the actual product and will not be purchasing this again as long as this is the case; will be looking for a similar product in another cosmetics line.

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact:

        I have used shimmer brick for at least 8 years. I started with pink and now use pink and mostly pink quartz. I never read reviews but I just did and must say I also bought this color a few months ago and some of it did crumble. I was disappointed but all the others I used until there was little left. I don't keep it in my purse or a cosmetic bag so I was surprised it happened but I am sick of trying to use it this way. I am buying a new one and was looking at a variety of sites. Just decided to put my 2 cents in. I still love it and have people tell this 69 year old my skin looks amazing. No my shimmer looks amazing!

        perfect subtle eyeshadow

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact:

        After a long, long search for the perfect subtle, natural, but beautiful eyeshadow, I tried a Shimmer Brick on a lark. WOW! The Bronze, Pink Quartz, and Beige compacts go on smoothly, and leave a lovely wash of color on the lids with just the lightest hint of shimmer. Just swish your brush on the entire brick and brush on your lid. You'll look like you - only better! Not so subtle you can't see it. Not so strong it overpowers. Perfect! Try it...

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact:

        I use it as highlighter (of course). I use it as dry and wet eyeshadow (of course). And... i use it as face powder by dusting it lightly with full coverage brush ( it really make your face blowy like it's the healthiest skin ever, at least that's what people said to me), i dab it on top of my lips even when i wear lip balm only, i use it to replace concealer by applying the gold pink colour (2nd row from bottom) on to the darkest part under my eyes ( the curve area near to the nose) and then i dab my long wear foundation a little bit. I don't use concealer so i found out that trick to save myself from dark circle that happen to me for almost everyday. And also..all over the body :).

        Glow Up

        By 

        from Pennsylvania

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact:

        After purchasing two drugstore highlighting powders that were highly recommended but fails I turned to this shimmer brick. It is perfect. The powder isn't a glitter. There are no big starry preteen chunks left on your face. Also, I don't look like I've got reflector strips on my cheeks. It leaves more of a sheen that you'd get from a cream product. It's buildable so I layer it until I get the effect I want. I swipe my brush diagonally across the pan once lightly to pick up just the right combination of pigments.

        I purchased two color bricks because of good reviews. I'm unable to pick up the color with a brush. I've tried a variety of brushes and nothing works. I'm very disappointed. Has anyone else has this issue, and is there a solution? I've emailed SOC@gcc.bobbibrown.com, but never heard back.

        Beautiful on fair skin

        By 

        from Memphis

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact:

        I bought this for my daughter, age 22, for Christmas. She has brown hair but very fair skin, and many blushes just look fake on her. She was really delighted to get this blush, and I see why: The color makes her look like an English rose-- faintly glowing, but not sparkly at all. It is the perfect color for girls who want a touch of very natural flush to their cheeks. I'm impressed by Bobbi Brown products!

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact:

        i love love LOVED (with a d on the end) my pink quartz up until... yes. It broke! I am still so very heart broken. I had just received it as a gift too. But OMG i had it maybe close to a month.

        It is indeed so perfect on medium/tan skin. I always stick to gold highlights and this was my first time "branching out." I have texture on my cheeks (like tiny bumps) and this shimmer brick did not emphasize them at all. (Like some highlighters tend to do.)

        If you plan on travelling with this make sure to place it somewhere safe.
        I do totally recommend this product, just be extra careful.

        Easy, natural, healthy glow

        By 

        from San Francisco

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact:

        I have had the same shimmer brick compact for years now. It is the only compact that I've had for this long that I still regularly wear whenever I'm looking for a more sun-kissed healthy glow. I'm mostly a minimal make up gal, a light brush on the cheeks gives me a natural flush that I could forgo using a blush. In fact, when I'm in a rush, I can use this as a blush and individual stripes of color as eyeshadows!

        For reference, I'm Asian with light to medium complexion. This compact works best for me during warmer months when I have a slight tan.
