When In Doubt, Strobe or Highlight Featuring Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze


REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze

Strobing is not new. It is the latest trend that has taken the makeup and beauty world by storm. Everyone is strobing... All models walking the runways of the world have strobed skin. Strobing... Strobing... Strobing... The term's everywhere...

Strobing literally translates to highlighting in layman's terms... Earlier it was contouring and highlighting, now its simply highlighting... Strobing or highlighting looks more natural than contouring no doubt and hence perhaps that's why its being embraced by everyone...

I am personally a huge fan of strobing and I have a decent collection of highlighters from drugstore to high-end... Today I am going to be reviewing a high-end highlighter that I use to strobe. Ladies and gentlemen please put your hands together for Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze.

Price of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze

It costs INR 2490/-

The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick consists of 5 bars of gorgeous shimmer that is very finely milled, is extremely soft in texture and is not chunky at all. As far as the shades are concerned, the first bar is a pale gold, the second a beautiful champagne gold, the third a copper-ish gold, fourth a peachy gold and the fifth a bronzed gold. They are really gorgeous individually as well as together.

As far as multitasking is concerned, the shimmer brick can be used as a palette of 5 shimmery eye shadows but I personally love using it as a highlighter, the way it was meant to be used. Its great for highlighting one's cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, the cupid's bow, the chin as well as the center of the forehead.

The shimmer brick has no odor and the shimmer particles are not chunky at all. They are very fine and they impart a natural looking sheen to one's skin. The product is buildable and hence easy to work with.

The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze comes in a sturdy but glossy black case with Bobbi Brown lettering, typical to all Bobbi Brown products. The packaging is like that of a compact and has a very good quality mirror as well.

Overall Rating: 

Even though it is a little pricey (it is Bobbi Brown!) the quality of course is amazing and hence I feel the price is justified. I love the product and recommend it to everyone who is into highlighting and well as per the latest trend, Strobing :)

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
