Shimmering...

No, I have not abandoned you all; I was just on a quick hiatus. And Ms. Clsssy your tutorial is next up. PROMISE. I want to address some bronzing and shimmer items that are all that and some! It is sometimes hard to find a nice shimmer for your skin wihout walking around looking like a flippin' disco ball. That is not the look most of us are going for, but maybe some don't know any better. Let me introduce you to my newfound friend: Shimmer Brick for Body by Bobbi Brown. Now, originally I looked at the price on this beautiful piece of uhhhh sparkly goodness... and my eyes about fell out my head at a whopping $75.00 price tag. I was thinking to myself- this brick can't possibly be all that. Oh, but was I foolish to doubt the ever shimmering powers of this tool. Have you ever wanted a soft glow, or bronze without looking like too much sparkle is on you, or just a dewy look to your everyday shine? Well, this is it! With an oven baked contraption of makeup and it gives your skin a sun-kissed glow that is UNTOUCHABLE!!! It doesn't look fake or overly shimmery, just enough sheer coverage to give the skin, face, and body enough glow... It was love at first application. NOW the brush I can do without- it cost more than the brick... $85.00??? WTBF??? How about... no? Yes Bobbi, the brush is soft, and all that gooey jazz goodness, but the brick already costs an arm; the least you could have done, especially since this is supposedly "limited" was throw in a decent quality brush to apply the wonderous shimmer for free-99. Let's keep it really real... in my humble opinion the over priced brush pulls too much dust off the shimmer brick and is actually quite messy. That could be because it's rounded, so you feel the need ot rub all into it... No, I'm not hating on the brush, I'm just amazed that the already rapist price doesn't include a decent brush. nope you just take it- no vaseline... *lol* NOW... here is my new brick's companion, and it didn't cost my left lung... Jeeze.

Yes, the Big Budda Brush by Urban Decay, works perfectly with my brickfor $36.00 and it is also soft taklon hair, and ANTI-BACTERIAL. You can't beat that with a stick!!! I have just been getting so many awesome items, and it's almost like there isn't enough time in the day or week to use all of it, but eventually I will. However, I think I found my daily glow with this one here... I LOVE this shimmer brick. I highly suggest you add this to your collection. I promise it'll become you favorite daily accessory soon enough.

Until next time...
