We’re counting down the days until we can board a flight back to our hometown to see our family for the holidays. We always try to look our best around the festive season — you never know when you’ll run into an old classmate or neighbor. It’s like an unexpected high school reunion. But we also try to pack light when traveling, so we always end up cutting down our cosmetics collection. As much as we want to bring our entire beauty bag, we have to stick with our priorities.
We used to think we needed to bring eye shadow, highlighter and blush along with Us, but not anymore! Thanks to Katie Holmes, we once discovered the holy grail of makeup — a glistening product that does it all. Back in 2013, while she was a spokesperson for the brand, the Dawson’s Creek alum told Elle that she couldn’t live without Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick. “I usually put it on right away in the morning, because it brightens up my whole face,” she said. “And then I can add a little mascara and be done, which is nice to know. I like those little shortcuts. Like, what’s the least I need to do in order to look like I’m alive?” We’re all about those little shortcuts too, especially when we’re on the go. “To me, Bobbi’s makeup is like having a beautiful, tightly edited closet,” Holmes added. “It all goes together, and it’s all really nice. You just can’t go wrong.”See It!
The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Highlighter Compact is a one-stop shop for your basic beauty needs. Want to highlight your cheeks with some radiant rouge? Check. What about adding some sparkle to your eye lids? Check. Applying makeup has never been easier. “I feel like Bobbi designs with people like me in mind, who aren’t that good at makeup,” Holmes said. “I really appreciate that.”
This brush-on powder highlighter will make your skin shine with lit-from-within color. Handmade in Italy, this product features superfine pigments that reflect light for a luminous glow. The five different shades bled together for a flattering combination of pale, golden and rosy pinks.See It!
This glow-up makeup gets glowing reviews! One shopper even called it “versatile magic.” Another customer gushed, “Everything I was expecting and more! It delivers a soft rosy glow, very natural looking.” One review revealed, “This is my secret to being an everyday glowing goddess. I wear this as a light bronzer and it warms my face and keeps me looking sun-kissed. There’s shimmer, not glitter, and you can use the separate colors as eye shadows!”
Whether you’re traveling or treating a loved one, this Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick makes the perfect gift. Your days will certainly be merry and bright with this highlighter compact.
