Sometimes a girl just needs a good bit of shimmer!
Now although I don't like looking like a disco ball, I do like a good old highlight and a nice look of a healthy sheen every now and again. So that's where the Famous Shining Star Shimmer Brick can come into play.
Famous Cosmetics Shining Star Shimmer Brick - £6.49*
Famous have a range of four shimmer bricks - The Mariah, Rihanna, Beyonce and Lady Shimmer. The one I have is Lady Shimmer and for me I would say it is the best out of the four, it has 5 gloriously golden shades which are colours that I always tend to be drawn towards.
I find that this works really well as a highlighter when swirled altogether and if you concentrate towards different colours on the brick you can create a more bronzed highlight or a more subtle one depending on what sort of look you are going for. I also use the individual colours as eyeshadows, favouring the 3 darker shades to do that with and the two lighter ones as a brow highlight.
As you can see from the above swatches the colours are intensely pigmented and have a gorgeous luminosity to them, the shimmer brick is also incredibly soft but has very little fall out. All colours blend really well together to create a really soft golden highlight and when used as eyeshadows they show hardly any sign of creasing, although I have always used them with a primer when I have.
Also I really love the packaging its sleek, sturdy and has a subtle leopard print pattern which for me is amazing as I'm a total sucker for anything leopard print!. Overall I think its a great little product and is so affordable compared to higher end brands that have products with exactly the same concept.
Have you tried Shimmer Bricks? Have you tried any of the Famous ones?
