Seventeen Shimmer Bricks




Recently I bought the seventeen shimmer bricks mainly because they are really pretty and a much more cheaper alternative to getting the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick. So today I thought I would share with you guys my opinions on this pretty little things..

So I picked up these both of these seventeen shimmer bricks recently when Boots were running their 3 for 2 across all makeup products (£4.99 each). This was perfect for me as I couldn't decide what shade I preferred as they are both so gorgeous... so I had to get them both! (definitely would of bought more if they had others too)

Anyhow the first one is the shade Gold Bronze (top pic/left pic). The four shades are: a pearly shade (highlighter), a paler gold shade (which is gorgeous shade if worn alone as an eyeshadow), deeper gold and then a bronze. All together they create a gorgeous bronzed look. I would say that when I swept this only my cheeks for the first time I was so shocked about how bronzed I was. It is definitely a shade that will need blending or just a little sweep if you have a paler skin tone. Saying that it is really nice on. I love that you can see the shimmer from the lighter shades when this is applied. It makes it look like you've used a highlighter as well, so definitely a nice quick and easy product. 

Now onto Pink Bronze... which is definitely my favourite! This one is like the all in one highlighter, blush and bronze and is created by one single step.. making it the perfect for me as I'm really lazy. This one has a lovely pale pink which words as a perfect highlighter, two pinky toned shades for the blush and a medium brown to create the bronze look. 
   
These are packaged really well in a sturdy matte black plastic although prone to getting a bit messy. I also like the fact you can see the shades straight away. Another great thing is that you don't just have to use these on the cheeks. These a great as eyeshadows as well. I did recently use the gold bronze one for this purposes because silly me forgot to pack an eyeshadow palette when I went away. So handy for creating a pretty eye look too. 

I personally love these and definitely happy I picked them up... Seventeen have created a winner product again in my eyes! (I love their cc cream also). These have definitely made me want to expand my shimmer brick collection and have  definitely got me debating whether or not to ask for a Bobbi Brown one for my birthday. 
If you know of any other brands that do these I would love to know.. 

speak soon, han xo 
 ps: boots are currently running an offer on seventeen products buy one get the a second product half price.

  10. Pink bronze is such a beautiful mix of shades! These sound great! I tried something similar from Revlon but was a bit disappointed- these look like winners though!
