Description

Choosing a bronzer with a range of varying complementary colours can avoid that unnatural, orange look. Sweep this compact across the areas which would be hit by the sun first to keep the look fresh and pretty.
This shimmering, brush-on powder creates a candlelight glow. Sweep on cheeks, after Blush, using the Face Blender Brush sold separately).

Directions

- Sweep the Face Blender Brush through all five shades and dust lightly on cheekbones after blush.
- Focus on applying shimmer on the top of cheekbones—where light naturally hits the face—for the most flattering look.
- To add a highlight to eyes, apply the lightest shade in the compact just under brow bone with fingertips or the Eye Smudge Brush.

Summary
I do like this product but not enough for the price, it does give a natural healthy glow, and it is very versatile, if you look at it as a blusher, plus 5 eye shadows, a highlighter and a bronzer then it starts to seem more like its price tag, but the fact remains that you only get a small amount of product for that price. I did like the feel of it on my skin in the sense that I couldn't tell that I had it on, and it did give me a glow and it is good for a night out or a holiday as you can take this to do a lot of different jobs. I have seen rave reviews of this on QVC but quite frankly, I would rather get a cheaper one, it just isn't so different from other products that cost less. Torn between recommending and not because whilst it is lovely I just wouldn't want anyone to spend such a large amount to be disappointed, so if the price tag is not a problem to you, get it, it is a good all round product you will get a lot of use from and it is a more refined way to get a bit of shimmer into your make up bag, but otherwise, try something else.

I like how the shades have been put together. Looks nice in the make up collection. Can be used on the eyes.
Weakest points
Not really suitable for oily/ combination skin types.
Summary
I loved the colours of the shimmer brick, however it made me look very shiny as I have combination skin. I now only use it to highlight my eyes.
Could be good for dry skin types to add shimmer and shine.

Summary
I finally took the plunge and bought this after seeing people rave about it online. I got it on beige (I have pale skin and red hair) after this colour was recommended to me by the counter assistant. Previously I was skeptical about how much this could do for your skin and it's quite expensive, but it really lights up your skin in a way that no foundation or primer I've ever used has been able to
