Seventeen INSTANT GLOW Shimmer Brick VS Bobby Brown

Hey guys!

I thought i'd do a review of the "Seventeen Instant Glow Shimmer Brick". It is ac amazing and only £5! I literally picked this up randomly years ago. But I love it so much I keep re-purchasing.

It's very similar to the Bobby Brown shimmer brick which is £35.

It comes in 4 different golden shades, I love using the lightest one in the corners of my eyes and slightly under to brighten them - it looks amazing with false eyelashes too.

Just look at the glow/highlight:
You can use it as a soft glow or add layers to make it look more bronzed. It gives a great sun kissed look in summer.

Have you ever used Seventeen or Bobby Brown's shimmer brick? What's your favourite bronzer?

  3. By looking at the picture, I think I prefer the Seventeen palette because it looks softer. The Bobbi Brown palette looks like the colors are too metallic rather than 'golden'. And wow, look at the price, too!
