Review: Bobbi Brown Light. Bright. Platinum Collection

What kind of person would I be if I didn't collect Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Bricks? A bad one.
Recently the compacts have been extra gorgeous. I wasn't sure if I'd like Bobbi's Platinum Pink Shimmer Brick ($40) because it looks kind of cool-toned, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's my silvery highlighter of choice. The shades blend together for a bright, shimmery but not chunky shimmery, look. Yesterday I ran a fluffy eyeshadow brush vertically through all the colors and then applied all over my lids for a pretty sheen that I thought was quite fitting for Easter. It's not something that I would have originally picked for myself, but I've come to love it.

I really wanted to like Bobbi's new Long-wear Cream Shadow in Steel ($22) but that was just not in the cards for me. The color of the deep cool brown shadow is quite, but the texture (not creamy enough) and wear (very short) were deal breakers. If you're going to use this, I definitely suggest using a brush, like Bobbi's Cream Shadow Brush. This stuff is not finger friendly (unless you want a softer, sheerer look.) On Asian eyes, like my monolids, eyeliner and eyeshadow tends to disappear due to the oiliness of my lids. It creases and becomes unwearable and messy. To this day, the only eyeliners I use are MAC Fluidline and Bobbi Brown's Long Wear Gel Eyeliner.
