17 Instant Glow Shimmer Brick in Pink BronzeI've had my eye on the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick for months and months, but could never justify spending £32 on what is essentially a highlighting powder. Luckily, I spied this much more purse friendly version from 17 at Boots and quickly snapped it up! It comes in two shades; Pink Bronze and Gold Bronze and costs £4.99. I chose the Pink Bronze as it is closest  in color to the Pink Quartz Bobbi Brown original, and prefer a pinky blusher type shimmer in the winter months to bronze or gold. I've used this Shimmer Brick over the top of blusher (MAC Pink Swoon) and on my cheekbones as a highlighter, and it creates a really nice subtle shimmer. On the brush it looks really glittery and a bit OTT, but it transfers to the face really well - subtle but with a nice shimmer which catches in the light. I've also used it on my eyes in various ways, which again gives a nice shimmer and color. I must admit it doesn't seem to last very long; when worn on cheekbones, within a few hours it has all but disappeared. Sigh. But, if you top up your make-up throughout the day, this means you aren't left in a big shimmery mess!I would recommend this if you've had your eye on the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick; at under a sixth of the price it is a bargain and can be used in a number of ways with great effect. Have you tried the 17 Shimmer Brick?
