Gorgeous, isn’t it? Not only is Bobbi Brown’s new Copper Diamond Shimmer Brick lovely to look at from the outside, with its pretty gold case, the colours inside are exactly the kind of colours I tend to wear, so I was really excited to be able to get my hands on one of these this week, and try it out.

This contains five different shades – candlelight, gold, copper, beige and sand – inside the ‘Copper Diamond’ case, and as with Bobbi Browns other Shimmer Bricks, the colours can be used anywhere you want to add a bit of shimmer. I love the three darker shades on my eyelids, while the beige and sand are excellent as highlighters on the brow and cheek bones.

These colours are fairly subtle, so if you’re going for a dramatic look I’d say this probably isn’t the Shimmer Brick for you. If you have paler skin and want to create a subtle glow, however, this is a nice way to get it, and as the colours will work on most skin tones, it’d also make a nice Christmas gift too.

Take a look under the jump for some more photos:



  1. Ooh, I’m definitely going to check this out – I’ve been told that gold shades are very flattering for blue eyes, so I’m eager to give it a go.

  2. steph, if you are looking for a nice goldie shade for blue eyes, the best I’ve found is by Urban decay, ‘sin’. £11. I love it. Gutted I have run out =(
