Bobbi Brown Shimmer Stick Nectar Review & Swatches

Bobbi Brown is a brand that gave ‘nude’ and ‘natural’ makeup a new meaning. Shimmer bricks have been a staple in makeup artist’s bags due to their versatility, high quality shimmer and color gradations giving a choice of 5 colors in a compact.
Shimmer Brick in NECTAR was their launch from the Cabana Corals collection but I got mine from for INR 2000 approx. The reason I loved this color was because of its gradation from pink to coral to carrot orange color.

PACKAGING – Bobbi Brown  Shimmer Brick Nectar:-

Comes in classic Bobbi Brown black glossy case with brand name printed in white. The casing looks expensive and feels luxurious yet being prone to finger prints. Inside is a mirror provided that somehow looks a bit sepia toned (brown instead of clear white) and opposite is the shimmer brick.

FORMULA - Bobbi Brown  Shimmer Brick Nectar:-

 Nectar is melange of soft muted corals with duo chrome warm pinks and shimmery carrot orange. It is packed with lots and lots of shimmer which on application translates into a warm coral glow on my neutral skin. It may looks a bit pinkish orange on fairer skins with pink udnertones. Shimmer brick consists of 5 strips of various corals that could be used individually, paired with some other color in the palette or used all over.
The shimmer is frosted but unlike its other sisters a bit on the subtle edge. It gives a glow of the setting sun on the face. The colors are shimmery coral, pink yellow gold duo-chrome, soft peach, muted light orange and carrot orange, while it gives an overall coral orange-ish glow.

Blush brush gives full on impact where as a dual fibre brush creates a softer candle-lit glow. It could be also used on eyes to create shimmery finishes and used to highlight the inner corners to open up the eyes.
Can be coupled with a bronzer for an amazing sun kissed glow too.
